"Friends are mere stepping stones when plans are hatched..."
I wanted to try and capture the sense of devious malevolence that is clearly redolent in this Troll. To do that I opted for strong directional lighting. This would mean dark shadows to aid the mood, and by choosing the green light I am visualling signalling that something less than good is at hand.
The closer crop on the figure, and static, almost profile, form further helps give the sense of a quiet, composed, moment as the cogs begin to whirr!
