Troll or trow is a mythical creature in Scandinavian folklore. The troll is said to be a “huge, monstrous creature that sometimes possesses magical powers.” They were said to live in castles and patrol the surrounding areas at night – they never ventured out during the day, lest they break apart or turn to stone. This type of troll is depicted in the animated series The Gummy Bears.
Later legends describe trolls the size of a man, dwarves, or elves. These trolls are said to live in the mountains, stealing young women and changing shape. Modern children’s stories, such as “The Three Grumpy Billy Goats,” are about demons that live under bridges, requiring tolls to cross.
Since 1959, “troll dolls” or “good luck trolls” have become fashionable from time to time. The dolls were invented by a Danish fisherman, who couldn’t afford a Christmas present for his daughter, and so “created the doll from his imagination.” Other kids wanted one, the fisherman opened a toy company, and the collectible craze quickly spread around the world.
Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Trolls starred in several animated series and video games. In 2016, the Trolls had an updated look upon the release of the 2016 animated film, but they retained their signature pointed hair.

Troll Drawing Step by Step
Start by using a long, curved line to outline the shape of the head. Notice the bulge of the eyebrows and the squareness of the jaw.
Use a curved line to outline the lower lip. Draw a shorter curved line below it to contour the chin. Then use curved lines to enclose the rounded triangular teeth.
Draw two large ovals to form the eyes. Complete one side of the face with a curved line.
Draw a curved line over each eye to form the eyelid. Use long, curved lines to outline the crooked nose, while contouring the eyebrows and cheeks.
Draw the troll’s ears, erase as necessary. Use curved lines to outline the pointed ears and to outline the inside of each ear. Enclose a partial circle in each eye to form the pupil.
Use one curved line to enclose the collar and another for the shoulders. Draw the opposite side of the arm with a curved line and connect it to the existing line using a series of short lines that meet at serrated points to form frayed fabric edges. From the sleeve, extend a pair of curved lines to outline the arm and hand. Close the fingers with overlapping curves.
Draw a club in troll hands. From each side, extend a curved line and duplicate it back to enclose an irregular shape. Club texture with a winding “T” shaped line.
Use curved lines to outline the side of the troll’s torso, lower belly, shirt bottom, and navel.
Extend three curved lines from the body to form the sides of the legs. Connect them with the curves at the bottom. Then, use overlapping curves to enclose the foot and toe.
Color your cartoon troll. Ours is green like the elves Shrek, but the trolls have been depicted in different colors.
