Grundle the Troll via Jordu Schell

    If you're familiar with sculptor Jordu Schell, then you probably realize that the man is very, very gifted. He seems to be intimately familiar with every form that exists on planet Earth, and very capable to rendering those many forms sculpturally. From my perspective he's a lot like the late fantasy artist Frank Frazetta in that he seems to very confidently render damn near any living creature under the Sun; or more accurately, every configuration of every living creature under the Sun!
 Here we have Grundle the Troll. The bust is 6.5" tall, cast in solid white resin. I see a chimpanzee in that face, don't you? That face and the physique of a lumberjack who's ready to tear an Oak tree out by it's trunk, bare handed. I wanted to get some photos of the bust before I started painting it. Enjoy:
