Did some rendering of the troll fella. Altered his face a bit as I said I'd have a go at that (and adding some hair too).

The smash fragments could do with a bit of tidying up.

Comments welcome :)

Yep. That's really cool! Great hair.

I think the similar level of detail across the text and the character works very well, much more successful than the original IMHO. Might just bring some of your stronger highlights into the lettering. If I were to nit-pick, I'd repose the back leg (drop the knee down below the body, stretch the lower leg out towards the back back ) for better balance and clearer reading.

Well done to Curis for spotting my tag in the crumbly text. That's a sharp eye :-) Gallivantes, do you think you could you work in a subtle name or a tag into the troll? Maybe up the club, or as a tattoo? I think that would really finish it off.

Now where do I get the merch? 8-)

Excellent job! Do you feel like it is ready?

Looks brilliant, and the troll reminds me of the old Fantasy Tribes Tom Meier trolls 8-)

Good stuff... thanks for the comments!

Citadel Collector: Yup, used them for a lot of inspiration. Glad to see it came across :)

Zhu: I'll have a play with the back leg, I think that's a good idea. I was following the original logo there quite slavically for recognisability but I think it's recognisable enough in so many other regards now so it's not gonna ruin it. As you said earlier it is a bit of an issue with the original logo, I agree.

Yeah I was thinking I'd work a signature into it some way — will do that once I'm done with the edits so I'm not working on shifting sands. Again nice ideas (don't think I'd have thought of the tattoo :)). I'll get something worked out.

And I realised I should have been more clear talking about the fragments... I mean the ones I put in, not the crumbling lettering! They look fine to me :)

Ok, take two on the leg. Definitely reads clearer now I think. Thoughts welcome!

Darker fragments and left leg modified, some might say these are details, but perfection hides in the details, that's a great improvement!

Looking great, amazing how the change to the leg has affected the dynamics.
