Mystery Troll

When you do miniature painting for a living, all kinds of things end up on the painting desk.  Some ordinary, some exotic... some are not very good, and others are amazing.

Every so often, you run across figures that are almost "alive", like this guy.  He's also quite whimsical!

I had a lot of fun doing subtle color transitions from brown to green, brown to purple, and so on.

A few folks have talked about who makes this figure.  He seems to originate from a kid's TV program?

In any case, he is kinda large, as he's standing on a 60mm base!

He certainly has a lot of personality!  The face is far an above the vast majority of those you see sculpted for trolls.  It was quite fun to paint.
