Scarred Ettin Sketch

I never think of 2-headed giants when I hear the term “ettin” - instead it makes me think of Stargate’s goa'uld (which, of course, were called that by the Norse-style human cultures in that show precisely because they have “2 heads” - just one is inside the other). Possibly I’ve just watched that show too many times.

Inktober Day 14

I skipped ahead again.  We had company over yesterday, and the image I had in mind for October 13th is a bit more time consuming, so it's not done yet.  This one could be dashed off relatively quickly, though, so I decided to go ahead and do it first.

Hobgoblin Dual-Wielder

Just your average tusked, blue-skinned, pointy-eared warrior, flourishing a cutlass and battle axe while roaring in overwhelming rage.

I actually had to mostly draw this guy twice, because I realized about 2/3 of the way through the sketch that the angle and pose I had him in would take up far too much horizontal space to fit into the necessary square space of a the final token product and still be at the same scale as all the others.

I probably won't post anything new for the next few days, as I'm going to be out of town for the remainder of the week.  More when I get back!
