Hallveig Stonewall the Trollkin Runeshaper by Ravenpuff Hallveig Stonewall the Trollkin Runeshaper by Ravenpuff
A little side project for ~AduroT as thanks for some help from him

He asked me to draw his Trollkin character, Hallveig Stonewall. Sadly I don't know much if anything about the universe these guys come from, but I tried my best with the refs I was given.

I don't think it turned out too bad. Though, as usual, I had problems making a stoney looking surface to the slap of floating rock the guy uses as a shield.
Took me forever to get his pose to work and I'm not sure if I made him bulky enough... Bulky is hard.
I'm even less sure if I can colour this pic without ruining it, since I end making it a clean pencil drawing instead of sketching and inking. I hope ~AduroT is okay with it like this..
Was a fun challenge to draw this guy. Very different from my usual stuff lately. More details, less pony. I just hope it can do

Enjoy

I likes it! Critique wise, yeah, could probably use more of a big chin, but the armor mostly hides that both in the drawing and the reference model, and as you said it didn't come off quite as bulky as should be. Trollkin are also known for not having pupils in the artwork, but I didn't tell you that in hindsight.

I do loves the armor and all the runes and I do think the stone shield came out rather well done. Overall a definite job well done given you've not been exposed to the Iron Kingdoms and Warmachine/Hordes before. Now I have to go show this off on the forums!

Yeah, big and bulky os not my strong side :P And the details were hard to see in the references I had, so I understand if I got them wrong like the pupil thing

:phew: Glad you overally like it. The detail overload was a killer, especially those runes on his torso. I just copied that from the figurine, I'm not even sure what it's supposed to be. A kind of armor? Either way, it was a time consumer to make >w<;

But again, I'm glad you like it =D I can try fix small details, like those pupils you mentioned :P Bigger change will be too hard to fix in a finished sketch like this, but I can always remove the pupils :P

If you wanted to do the eye thing that would be alright, but you don't have to. And I'm not sure what the little rune stones in the chest are for, though its likely something to do with their spell casting as its only the sorcerers of that race that has em. And he's actually got a metal breastplate on under them and the cloth. It's just really hard to see at the angles pictured.

That detail overload is quite impressive too. It concerned me a bit when I was throwing those refs at ya and wasn't sure what you'd do with it, but you handled em super well.

Yeah, those are just details hard to get right unless you specificly know them :P

Sometimes I'm cool with making this much details. Gives me more of a challenge than drawing MLP ^^

Never expected to see you make Iron Kingdoms stuff. As far as Trollkin go, it's pretty accurate although they tend to have something of a lantern jaw.

Also they belong to Privateer Press.

Just as a request for a friend, I don't think it's anything that could really capture me :P But was a fun challenge to draw even though I messed up on some of those details

Thanks ^^
