Antagonists are usually as legendary as protagonists in some stories.
I haven’t drawn any mean characters yet. Really, I’ve been focused on creating work that is pleasant and soothing and celebrates children. However, it occurred to me that if I want to illustrate a story for a book maybe I should draw a mean character or two…since books almost always have an antagonist! I’ve been thinking about this Troll for quite some time, and it seemed appropriate to sketch him for this week’s IF. For my first ‘meany’, he might need some work, as he looks part Witch, part hunchback of Notre Dame, part Troll…but I think whatever this character is, he fits well into an antagonist role. I am pleased for now!
