Olog-hai by Mara999 Olog-hai by Mara999
My take on Sauron's specially bred trolls from Mordor. I still insist on drawing hairy trolls after the Scandinavian fashion, rather than giving them scales. Besides that I've stayed true to Tolkien's description of them wielding hammers and having big round shields. The design of the helmet is inspired by the gear that orcs wore in the Rankin-Bass animated "Return of the King".

Have you ever thought that perhaps the trolls in Middle-Earth, are just really big orcs?

Perhaps. It would explain from what the trolls were originally bred, if Morgoth and other evil forces are unable to create new life.

There is no clear info on what the trolls were originally, only that the end result was made in "mockery of" ents.
