Inktober Day 3


Inktober Day 3: prompt: Roasted

“Mutton yesterday, mutton today and blimey if it don’t look like mutton again tomorrer” said one of the trolls
- The Hobbit

Another super-quick ink drawing /painting.  Trying for some non-movie trolls.   I feel like my ability to draw has deserted me specially for October, but I shall not give up.

I especially like their noses.

A lot of Scandinavian pictures of trolls seem to feature creatures with much longer noses and generally more mossy-looking than the LOTR movie trolls, so I thought I'd try for something more in that vein.

I don't think your ability to draw has left you, I think that's a great sketch :-) I know when I draw, what I see in my mind rarely ends up the same on the page and I find that very frustrating. I'd love there to be a way of transferring the picture in my mind to the page without having to use my hands. That's one reason I tend to sew rather than draw or paint, somehow things work better for me with a needle rather than a pencil or a brush.

Oh yes, the eternal struggle to get down what your mind's eye sees is horribly familiar!

Pp liked the trolls too, in fact he liked them better than today's effort, where I fell back on pencil and rubber and drew a rather neater and more precise set of three (dwarves this time not Trolls).
