Concepting some Troll Heads for a new video

I was doing my weekly sketching exercises yesterday and decided to get going with some ideas for a new training video. I will be doing some more head modelling tutorials and Trolls are my old favourite so here’s some of my initial ideas. I mixed up the styles to see which one fitted the project so there a little bit of harry potter, LOTR, Warcrafty  influence going on as you’d imagine. I’m thinking I’ll use th bottom right one and make him a mean SOAB with big rotten teeth.

If you’re wondering why there’s a flipped little head then you need to try it with your own work. Lots of artists do it with a mirror or on the computer to see if you have got any bias going on. I find that my heads slant off to the left if I don’t reverse and check them. I’m left handed and I find I draw some odd looking perspectives if I don’t flip and check. At the pencil stage I often do a very rough outline and before commiting any stronger strokes I’ll turn the page over and take a peek at it on a light box.

And a few more today.
