I like that one. It looks like the troll that lives under the bridge across the creek in my mother's back yard. You have to step lively or he'll bite off your toes.

Nice lettering. That even looks scary. :evil:

I remember everyone in school having one of those and really wanting one. I have a mini one.

What font did you use?

I agree with everyone here - great lighting, superb matching of colors. Ferny, everyone had one?!?!? I don't think I'd want one, mini or not! It looks like something out of a Stephen King book. Remember "Naugy" the Naugahyde monster, that was given/sold/raffled from the furniture salesman's sample of Naugahyde? Anyone?

Good lighting job, Barbara.

However, I have to be honest : that kind of beast makes me laugh instead of being scared. Maybe that's due to the piggish look of that shape.

By contrast, I'm realizing that the clown of "Stephen King's IT" is very scaring ( according to a certain way of scaring people adding unusual spooky characteristics to familiar and comfortable icons ).

Thanks, everyone.

Yes, it's one of those hand puppets. My son had two, but we could find only this one. He and I used to hold conversations, we being the ventriloquists. You're right, Sergio, they're funny. Anyway, we thought they were.

I can't remember the name of the font because I it isn't loaded right now. Extensis Suitcase manages my fonts, and only those that Windows requires are automatically loaded at boot-up. Being a maniac for fonts, this is the only solution.

Those trolls must get around, Puck. I have a friend who, when she was growing up, had to be very careful of the troll down by the creek. It particularly liked munching on rosy-cheeked girl children.
