This is just a simple little sketch I did in Adobe Photoshop. I’ve always been a fan of folklore and mythology, and the legends of trolls in Scandinavia have always been some of my favorites.
Trolls, by all accounts, are some of the most vicious, mean-spirited creatures in the world. Fortunately, the are also extremely stupid, and easily out-witted. This is demonstrated in the classic story “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.”
It should be noted that though the stereotype of trolls as stupid and malicious is indeed true, not all such preconceptions are based in reality. For example, did you know that not all trolls live under bridges? In fact, many can be found living in caves, mountains, and even on internet message boards. [/one-third][two-third last=”true”]
