Created using PS and a wacom bamboo, this is a fanatasy depiction of a huge troll being controlled by its rider...a dark elf sorcerer.
I like everything about this except the fact that the troll is under the control of an elf. Surely a troll as large as him should be strong enough to crush a puny elf.
Yes, so no doubt being a dark elf sorcorer he controls the troll by some kind of spell. That's how I envisioned it. Otherwise, yes, he's roadkil!
That is no troll I'd ever want to ride. The detail on this is amazing, and extremely overwhelming (in a great way). It's a little soft and fuzzy perhaps for the focus, but I do like how that draws your eyes to the rider and the ridiculously muscly arms on the troll. I also love how you've got the texture to the toenails (is that what you'd call them?). Excellent work! Absolutely beautiful detail.
