They Have A Cave Troll

This is a digital piece (from the last Digital Auction) featuring an internet troll attacking a "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" fan site.

The original line art measures 7 1/2 x 14 inches and was drawn on Bristol using Micron pens. The final artwork was colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me coloring some of this piece on my Ustream channel here: [link]

It looks like Legolas is controlling the troll, much to Boromir's amusement, and Gimli's discomfort.

You'll believe a dwarf can fly.

That looks really great. I like the art style.
awesome.. but i have two favorite parts in this.
1- the trolls face, and looking like its throwing a tantrum, and
2- boromir's facial expressing in the background.... "say whaaat? they have a cave troll" or... he hit his head and "hey... hey look.. hey.. its a flying dwarf (claps and and laghs like child)"

I loved that scene in the movie- a really intense fight sequence and a nice tribute to the Harryhausen movies. Awesome take on it! =D

I love this. This piece makes me smile every time I take a look at it. I swear, its the flying dwarf... but of course, its against the rules to toss one in the first place, it makes it even better. Great work as always, Otis!

Yeah, I second that! How does he make it look so dam well done?! I love the glowy sheen that is often present in the artworks, great technique and when combined with such excellent illustrations it truly makes for some eye-catching graphics.

This is amazing! And I second that, you could totally make this into the Rancor scene with no problem at all.

I would like to see the whole film animated like this :D

I bet you could change this into a RoTJ Rancor scene in less than 10 minutes :P
