Bjorn and Anja

Sketch and color testing of my characters Bjorn and Anja. He’s a Scandinavian troll-type with some giant in his genes, hence how HUGE he is. (she’s 5’10”, so he’s quite the imposing figure.)

I made him as a stop-motion puppet two years ago for a school assignment: here’s some pics from a past post:

They’re from a Swedish fairy-tale re-telling I’ve been working on “on-off” since my senior year in high school. (first pics of them are on lined paper) Tale’s called “The Princess Who Danced with a Troll Every Night”—long winded title! But it is so rich, even in the simple fairy-tale style it’s written in, and it ends so abruptly! I have a bit written on it already, but part of me is wondering if I should switch to making it into something sequential… That might be fun.
