Arctic Troll Quick WIP 1 – Cold Troll Skin

Arctic Troll Quick WIP 1 – Cold Troll Skin

Just a quick update. I’m currently painting on a couple of projects but mainly on the Arctic Troll. The plan is to use him for the Golden Vinci competition that’s running for another month or so.


I decided on painting him wearing Inuit inspired clothes so after some researching I found some good photos to help me decide on the colors.

With the face I wanted a cold color and I’ve always liked trolls with grey blue skin so that made the choice easy.

I think I’m almost done with his face and I’m quite pleased with how it looks. I might push the highlights a little bit more but I’ll wait with that decision until I can get a better idea of how all the elements will look together.
