I like it! Makes you wonder if he had rightful cause after all, he looks so ugly-but-good. IF one ignores the huge spiky club...

A lot of those stories where violent b/c they where made up by adults. Most where made b/c you weren't a loud to talk openly about politics and religion, like we do today, without fear of getting your head cut off. Three Blind Mice is actually a political poem. Ring Around the Rosie is about the plague. Seriously do some research on those old rhymes and stories..you'd be surprised what you will find out. :)

Good art work BTW...:)

OMG yes! I still have my favorite: 'The Rainbow Goblins.' I still will flip through the pages when I feel nostalgic. Actually, That particular book inspired me and my use of color. "Don't ask me about the Author...'Cuz, I could never pronounce it!" ^^;

That's a wonderful design! I've never seen a troll quite like it, which is nice. The only thing that I notice seems off is how certain parts - the stone, the earrings, and one of the spikes on the club - seem sharp in comparison to the rest of it. It isn't terribly noticable though, and it could just be me.
It really is weird how childrens' things are strange and violent. Ring Around the Rosy is about the black death, they have a song about London Bridge crashing to the ground and a French one about plucking out a goose's feathers.

Oh thank you, I do appreciate your comments, by the way. Sometimes, when I get to working on a picture, I forget to focus on the entirety when I feel close to being finished.
The other thing I think may happen is when I change the size of the image, I change the pixilation...but thanks for pointing it out...
Yeah, I had occassion to think about some of Grimm's fairytales, as well. :O ...dancing one's life away in red-hot shoes...did they really do things like that, way back then?

I think it was probably meant to scare children into submission. The shoes thing does have a morale, sort of: don't be greedy. It's just that the creators went a bit overboard with the punishments. My own father was less into morals, because intead of telling me how Goldilocks stole from three bears and got eaten, he told me how she stole from three squid (quite sentient squid), was still hungry after the porridge, saw the squid, and had a nice meal of calamari.

yes, it's surprising how creepy and violent children stories are, but kids don't even really notice it until they are older lol
