Troll Hunter by kerembeyit Troll Hunter by kerembeyit
Weeks of unfruitful search was starting to get to her. She was getting more impatient and less hopeful by the day. After a long period of searching caves and finding nothing but angry residents that felt intruded, she was about to break down.

Like so many times before, once again, she remembered the brutally ripped-apart animal corpses laying around in the forest... in her forest. She tried very hard to stop the tears from falling down and continued on her determined walk to find the beast that had been wreaking havoc in her peaceful land.

Where could it have gone? How could something as big as a troll manage to hide for so long?

The wind answered her by blowing through the leaves, joining all the trees together and making them sing their soft and rustly song only to remind her how vast the woods were. She looked up sorrowful and down. Maybe it was time to give up? Maybe he had left? Maybe--

Her hopeless thoughts fleed away immediately as she sat down by what seemed to be a big dark hole in the ground. "I knew you could not go on without filling up your big, ugly belly." she thought and a bright light shone from her hands to reveal a huge, unmistaken troll footstep for her to follow and make sure that its owner does not leave another one.

Thanks to my sister for the little story.

Beware they can be very clever, it could even be a trap.

Superb work, great little story to compliment the piece, has a Witcher feel to it, was that intentional or am I just being strange? Regardless, fine work you have done, keep it up.

HOW. DO. YOU. DO. THAT... *picks jaw up off the ground*

Ok, I've vowed to one day be this good... but it looks like it's going to be longer and longer before I get there. Your illustrations are just SO amazing. Just saw the one (well both of them actually) that you did for Scott Appleton, and yet I still am floored each time I see another of your pictures.

Wow...

Beautiful lighting and shadow effects.
The hair stands out just enough to keep you focused but not enough to keep you there, nice job.
LOVE the mossy texture. keep up the work and you can do wonders.
