Goblin and Troll Skulls by Kairu-Hakubi Goblin and Troll Skulls by Kairu-Hakubi
I've had this as a sketch for freakin' ever..
Comparative anatomy time with humanity's least favorite relatives.
Interesting notes to point out:
-Goblins have freakin' big eyes to see in the dark, whereas Trolls just have tiny eyes and crappy vision in general
-Goblins have a tiny wee nose to avoid injury, Trolls have big giant tall noses to help with tracking by scent
-Trolls have a sagittal crest while Goblins have a unique sagittal cleft. Occipital crests are pronounced in both cases but not really visible here (that means that bony ridge on the back)
-Trolls have the same basic dentition as humans but Goblins have one fewer carnassial per quadrant (i ran out of space)
-Goblins have horns. Isn't that weird?

Personally, I think that a troll skull would be a lot more apelike, maybe with the tusks on the lower jaw. The goblin skull, however, is really cool!

Hmm putting troll eyes closer together would actually work pretty nicely. I may start doing that. fits their look.

Sweet! Also, it would be a bit more practical if the tusks were on the lower jaw, like a boar's: that way, the troll's jaws pack a pair of saber teeth.

boar tusks are on the top jaw, boar FANGS are on the bottom jaw. The two rub together and sharpen each other.  You're right though, on a flat humanoid face tusks arent very useful because it's not exactly going to be smashing its face into anyone. Not with a big-ass troll nose.
