Tom's Fairy Tales #1: Ogre (From Three Billy Goats Gruff)

(Detail 1)

(Detail 2)

I've decided to start a small series of drawings based on timeless fairy tales. This is a drawing from the Norwegian story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff... There's the first goat, yearning for greener pastures, about to cross over the dreaded bridge under which the Ogre resides... Will he make it??

Well, this is a perfect series for The Last Supper.

What good expression you have caught; nice line and angle - that ogre looks like some men I know - but we won't go there!

Ha ha! Thank you Bella. Yes I meant to make the Ogre look quite "realistic." I like when fairy tale and reality mix.

As for the Last Supper, I have no idea what you're talking about Greg - T :)
