John Bauer's Trolls

Here's an attempt in inks.    

I modeled the troll after John Bauer's fantastic troll illustrations.  He was a Swedish illustrator who did many folk tales.  I got to see some originals and they were just amazing.  Check him out if you have the chance.

  1. Well done! Just so you know, it looks like you drew the drawing below the text, although I know you didn't.

  2. That's the best inking I've seen you do. It's like you're super-talented or something.

  3. I really like the top one. Honestly I love art but don't know a whole lot about it, is there a specific name for the style used on the top piece? It almost looks digital but i have no idea...

  4. It's pen and ink. I used a pen and a brush for this piece.
