Work on the unfinished Troll Screamers shown above as well as several NEW Troll Screamers will resume soon. I have several body parts ready to go for the new creations.

Well Sharky the Troll Screamer give away prize is off into our airing cupboard (hot water tank cupboard) for some fast track drying. I still have to add a few bits & pieces to him yet such as hair & an eye patch (eye patch is removable) & his cutlass (also removable along with his hat) but he needs to dry off so i can paint him first.

Here he is safely tucked away for the next 7 days:

Mercifully Trolls (screamer or otherwise) like dark warm places & the board like shelf should remind him of a ship deck so he won't object to being in there so long & make a noise when we are all sleeping, well he didn't last night anyway lol.

I know i said i was not going to show any more sneak peeks until he was finished fully but if you really can't wait (i know i can't & i am the one making him & i know how he will look when finished lol) I have swapped out the static image of is latest WIP stage for a 2 minute sneak peek video. You can find it tagged onto the bottom of the give away rules information down the right hand info bar.

If the small video display is not for you then at the bottom of the video display simply click on the 'expand' option to see it full screen. See below:

You can expand the video FULL SCREEN by clicking here indicated by the green arrow.

So this IS definately your last sneak peek folks as once i start painting him he is going to be in & out of that cupboard every other day or so until he is fully finished. So i simply will not have time to take any more sneak peek pictures until he is done finally lol. I will be doing a more in depth video short containing ALL the details about Sharky ie: height, weight, construction etc at a later date. That video will be on YouTube when finished but i WILL notify you when that is done. Hopefully ahead of the give away start.



  1. Sharky is looking real good there, Jonty. And I love the way you presented that video. Really Cool! You are a man of many talents!

    I love how your Troll Witch Screamer is turning out too. How much did you say you were thinking of charging for your Troll Screamers? Think I might have to start saving up for one of them. I got a feeling they are going to become collector’s pieces.

  2. Luella: He is isn't he lol.

    I have dabbled in a few things 'creative' over the years lol. My old (haven't done anything in it for sometime now) image related website:

    Believe it or not that whole 2:14 minutes took around 2 hours to do. It took around a hour or so to edit the actual backgrounds out of the pictures the another 20 mins or so to edit the final video sequence lol.

    The YouTube version will take a few days at least lol.

    Prices now thats something thats doing my head in. For a number of reasons i haven't sold a thing yet so haven't made a mark as a 'known' artist as such. Then there is size of these compared to sizes & prices of 'other' art dolls & the like. The Troll Screamers are some 30 inches tall. I might have to ask around, get some idea's of what prices to set for them officially later.

    I have been looking for something to make my own, my own little marker with but i don't know about collectors pieces, not yet anyway lol.

  3. I love your troll screamers!!
    And thank you so much for your kind comments--it is appreciated :)

  4. Caroline: They do have a quirkyness about them don't they wait until you see the others i will be making lol.

    I tell it like i see it & if i like it i tell it lol.

    Your welcome.

  5. I love your work so much. I have watched most of your video's and I have even started making a hand using your video on making it. Thank you so much for all the time you have put into putting all these video's and info online... Can't wait to see if I win the them.... Kim

  6. Kim: Why thankyou very much.

    I desperately want to get to doing more HOW TO video's but i just have so much going on right now. I promise i will do more just as soon as i can. Have fun with the hand & send me some pics to see please. So many people say they are using one of my video's but i rarely get to see what they achieved.

    Sharky is the first of my new breed of Troll Screamers, but he was destined for the give away lol. I wish everyone that takes part in the give away all the luck in the draw. I can't wait to see what distant shores he will land on lol.
