Look! A monster!
Welcome to a scene from The Princess and the Troll. Clearly, the princess is using a giant hand monster sea creature thing to dislodge an oversized star from the sky (or is it the sea?) I had a lot of fun painting this, mostly because it involved a lot of paint splattering and peeling off masking fluid (think how fun peeling PVA glue off the back of your hand used to be and double it).
And here is the concept sketch in lots of lovely black ink!
So, there is proof that princesses, trolls, and odd-looking monster are still in the mix.
