Enchanted Troll by BenWootten Enchanted Troll by BenWootten
This is a piece that was done for the TCG Mystic Warlords of Ka'a, the spin off game from the Big Bang Thoery. This the TCG that Will Wheaton is constantly beating them at. The game has been designed to capture the parody like quality it has in the series and the flavor of the character from the show play use the different factions featured in the game. Hence the game has a humourous undertone to it. I think that comes through the in artwork. I have really enjoyed working with Derek Herring and Roger Chamberlain at Dire wolf Digital on this Game.

i rarely do trolls, but when i do, i find they come out similar to this one but with similarities (particularly in the face) to lowland gorillas.

I like that slight lumbering, rolling sort of gate, it speaks of easy power and no hurry, suit them nicely.

yup, that just about describes them perfectly. i made a few based off lowland gorillas and the Gorog from Star Wars the Force Unleashed 2.

It might be for a humourous game but I have rarely seen a troll depicted with so much soul. The mood in the picture is excellent and I like it very much but I can't helpt to think that the trolls pose looks unbalanced and that it looks like it would topple over any second.

Thanks for the kinds words. I think he is only unbalanced if you see him as standing still, but if he is staggering along as if under an enchantment then his pose works fine I think.

He is under an enchantment, so not so much sad as away with the fairies...perhaps even literally:)

Why is this also named "Icarus the Seer"? I thought that was the blindfolded bird-guy.

This is great!!! Made me smile. I love the whole gentle giant element. Great painting skills as well, I love the outline being used as backlighting. That is a great solution to using an outline without making the image too stylistic. Very cool, thanks for sharing.

Your art makes me so happy and fills me with so much inspiration. I love being able to follow your work. You have such a vivid, sharp and bold way about everything. The only other artist I've ever seen so far with such a sharp,lively and specific style is Wayne Reynolds.
