LOTRO: Cave Troll by Gorrem LOTRO: Cave Troll by Gorrem
A cave troll of Moria.

This is the only description in the book about them:

"There was a blow on the door that made it quiver; and then it began to grind slowly open, driving back the wedges. A huge arm and shoulder, with a dark skin of greenish scales, was thrust through the widening gap. Then a great, flat, toeless foot was forced through below. There was a dead silence outside."

Gorrem...let me be the first to say you have art. these pictures you have made are just perfect. most people I know tried to draw pictures from books like this one and don't do it very good. so what I am saying is...if there was a way I would give you a thousand Badges for making such fine pictures. so...for now I shall give this.

Boromir: "They have a cave troll."
Gimli: "Let them come! Let them see that one more dwarf in Moria still draws breath!"
Me: "Awesome movie, awesome fighting, awesome picture here!"
Seriously, this is fantastically done. A worthy piece to put towards LOTR. Nice job.

I really love your interpretation of Tolkien's cave troll, especially since he gave you so little to work with. What brings this piece alive for me is the way that this guy attached the weapons of his slain enemies to his club, both making him more intimidating and more actually dangerous at the same time! Also, the Dwarven skulls and axes that are a part of his clothing--a nice touch. I think the entire Fellowship would be hard pressed to stop this guy!

Absolutely magnificent! Beautiful! HOW do you do this? I'm a graphics design major at the university of alabama in mobile. THIS is the scale and depth of fantasy art I aspire to. Do you have any tutorials? Or perhaps just simple advice?
