The trolls argue till dawn

The trolls argue till dawn

For this illustration i chose do depict a scene from Tolkien's the hobbit.
Depicting just after the sun has risen in the forest as the three trolls turn to stone in the sunlight.
I drew on both Norwegian and Asian influences for the design and layout to make a illustration that both told a part of the story and
also looked moody and cinematic.
