While working on "Barnaby and Loaker"- http://barnabyloaker.blogspot.co.uk/ I had to research gremlins and other mythical creatures and I think that played a part in a new superhero character I've been working on. He's aptly called The Troll and is a very unlikely hero. Without giving too much a way, He's pretty much forced into a life of heroism and destiny. I quite like idea of a controversial and unusual character in the place where a more traditional hero would stand.
Anywhoo here is the initial sketch. Originally I had planned for him to be without any hair but I intend to play around with the shadows in this story so I think the black long and unruly hair plays along perfectly with that.
