The Bridge Troll by RobbVision The Bridge Troll by RobbVision
Here is the Troll. His design was inspired by Frederick Richardson's frog-like troll design in the Classical Volland Edition "GREAT CHILDREN'S STORIES". My Grandma used to read that book to me every time I stayed over at her house. The turn-of-the-century illustrations scared me a bit, but it was still my favorite book. She gave me that book as a gift when I graduated college. To this day it is one of my favorite things.

What an awesome rendition. I'd love to see the version of the troll this is based on. I agree those turn of the century drawings were pretty creepy, yet somewhat inspiring.
