Information about the Jötnar!

(From Wikipedia)

     In Norse mythology, troll, like thurs is a term applied to jötnar, and are mentioned throughout the Old Norse corpus. In Old Norse sources, trolls are said to dwell in isolated mountains, rocks, and caves, sometimes live together (usually as father-and-daughter or mother-and-son), and are rarely described as helpful or friendly.

     A Scandinavian folk belief that lightning frightens away trolls and jötnar appears in numerous Scandinavian folktales, and may be a late reflection of the Thor's role in fighting such beings. In connection, the lack of trolls and jötnar in modern Scandinavia is sometimes explained as a result of the "accuracy and efficiency of the lightning strokes."

     Additionally, the absence of trolls in regions of Scandinavia are described in folklore as being a "consequence of the constant din of the church-bells". This ring caused the trolls to leave for other lands, although not without some resistance; numerous traditions relate how trolls destroyed a church under construction or lunged boulders at stones at completed churches. Large local stones are sometimes described as the product of a troll's toss. Additionally, into the 20th century, the origins of particular Scandinavian landmarks, such as particular stones, are ascribed to trolls who may, for example, have turned to stone upon exposure to sunlight.

Please give DIAMOND if you like it!

This Jötnar troll was modeled after the one found in the fantastic film: 'Troll Hunter'.

Nice skin, but wrong article. Jötnar are in high mythology. They are frost giants. Trolls are in folklore. Anyways, I have seen the movie and your skin is pretty accurate. Good job! Diamond Favorite :D

I love this skin. By any chance have you seen the movie Troll Hunter? If so this skin is spot on. And no matter what people say, I have a slight belief in this movie. I feel like going into my woods and walking around at night now lol :D

I am completely in love with Troll hunter, any chance of seeing a Tosserlad or Ringerfilch from it? or perhaps a Rimetosser, though this may be a version of a Rimetosser.

Unfortunately, probably not.

I too love the movie (SO FREAKING MUCH), but I mainly chose to make the skin solely for the myth creatures contest. By all means, if you wanted to DL this skin and use it as a base/starter for your own Troll skin, you have my support.
