Trolls vs Gnomes

I started this project for my Patreon, as a set of 3dprintable miniatures. I had already done a pretty large collection of gnomes, and wanted to add some monsters to my line of miniatures.

Rather than just start with a Dungeons & Dragons Troll, I got inspired by some old Fairy tale illustrations by John Bauer…

As usual, I start the 3dmodel with a simple armature in Zbrush, before blocking out the basic shapes. Then I work on the poses, sculpt details and props until I am happy with it.

I was pretty happy with this group, and may add a few more to the set!
