More progress on that wip of twig! I plan on finishing the colors, shading, and maybe adding a background too if i feel like it :)
Also don't mind that doodle in the upper right corner lol, thats the armature thing i made to get the figure right :D it really helps me to get the figure and pose before i add details to a more finished drawing like this.
it took a while to finish this but FINALLY DREW THE CRIME GOBLIN!!!!!! (lemme be honest- twig and ande hold a very special place in my heart now bc it was absolutely adorable when they interacted with rowan and it made my day better when it happened :])

The Rundown: Twig’s quest continues to take some unexpected turns.
Twig finds himself facing the last horned beast. His quest requires the creature’s heart, but Twig finds himself unable to kill the innocent creature after they talk and the quest acquires a new member in…

was reminded that twig was set in the 1920s and went down a rabbit hole of 1920s-style postmodern jukebox covers.
anyway their covers of seven nation army and gnarls barkley crazy would work so well for a twig animatic.
anyone else know songs with twig-y vibes?
And some original character sketches, this is Twig, one of my Ball Jointed Dolls, she's a mostly laid back shit disturber who tags along on adventures purely for something to do and runs errands for the local forest witch Rhian. Who is also the only person she respects.
So one Trolls fic I’m subscribed to is Picturebook Romance by Dreamsinger-rose (just Dreamsinger on ao3 and ffn). And there’s some interesting and pretty impressive additions to the worldbuilding and lore there, Dreamsinger builds off of canon pretty darn well. I don’t adopt all of it into my own headcanons but it’s all pretty great.
Sometimes reading through some of the exposition on that, I imagine how Twig would interact with all that stuff.
Where the story’s at right now, there’s a bunch about the Frolic Festival and the whole frolicking season. Basically mating season, if you haven’t read it. “Frolic” is the term used for “Fornicate.” Ace trolls are fully acknowledged and accepted btw, though it’s noted that some of them still will get the Urges TM during frolicking season even if they don’t the rest of the year.
Can’t stop thinking about how much Twig would HATE the whole thing, tbh. XD
She’s an aroace and she’s very romance-repulsed and sex-repulsed. She wouldn’t even do a quick tour around the festival to satisfy curiosity like it’s noted some kids do, she wouldn’t have any curiosity to satsify. She’d stay home if possible. If not, she’d stay in the “no thanks” area, and join in some of the games but probably sit on the sidelines reading during most of them. Maybe she’d wander off into the forest to play and explore by herself out there, leaving the whole thing behind.
Maybe adults would try to pressure her to join the games she’d rather sit out on. She would keep refusing. I feel like maybe over the years she starts to enjoy more of the games, but she never does end up getting into ALL of them.
Maybe adults who don’t know her well would start teasing her at some point about the possibility of getting in relationships and/or frolicking in the future, especially as she’s 11 which is classified as “preteen” and therefore coming up on them teenage hormones and junk. She would rebuff them with anger and disgust, insisting that no, that’s disgusting and she’s never going to.
For all the things I like about Picturebook Romance, it does show an upsetting amount of amatonormativity and compulsory sexuality in Troll Village. There’s a lot of automatically expecting and encouraging trolls once they reach a certain age to get into “frolicking.” Twig would hate that literally SO much. I can imagine the questions and pressuring going up every year, and Twig just getting angrier and angrier about it all.
