Is it a plant? Is it an animal? Is it a anilant or planimal? Who knows... but what is known is that it is a relentless juggernaut of destruction. I love to work on big massive hulking creatures (the dumber the better) and the Troll gave me that opportunity. You can keep your sleek lean agile creatures, give me the big slow brutes. Not sure if I explored any new territory design wise with this guy but I sure as heck had a lot of fun working on him ...and sometimes, that is enough for me. I did try to give him the appearance that his skin and horns could be plant or animal in origin or somewhere in between. He does have a big stone hammer and shields wrapped around his shins!
