Wandering in the Night

The Trolls are searching for food and prey, but they have come across a forest spirit instead. Here is a John Bauer inspired piece I just finished, it is made in regular background size. From growing up in Sweden I have always loved the feeling he managed to capture.

Is this about Harry Potter? Very cool art by the way, been using it as my wallpaper for a while now.

Thanks! Glad you liked it. The piece is about some of the old Scandinavian folktales of trolls in the woods.

I saw this on reddit.

I love it; I love the atmosphere that's created, the beautiful creatures and... everything about it. It shall replace my laptop wallpaper! (which currently matches my profile picture which matches my phone's wallpaper... It's time for a change.)

I wouldn't put it past a troll to try and eat a spirit anyway.

Good art, but I believe you mean prey
