[EDIT] Added text

Oh Cod, I have no idea why I'm even uploading this stupid troll shirt, but oh well it's 04:30 in the morning I don't even care anymore sorry bye

This is for the Mythical Creatures Design Challenge! were we are supposed to make a T-shirt design based on mythology/folklore [link]

And with me being from the north, my mind just went straight for the Norse myths and tales.

TROLL (troll)

In Scandinavian folklore, trolls are beings that live far from human habitation, are not Christianized, and are considered dangerous to human beings. Depending on the region from which accounts of trolls stem, their appearance varies greatly; trolls may be ugly and slow-witted or look and behave exactly like human beings, with no particularly grotesque characteristic about them. Trolls are sometimes associated with particular landmarks, which at times may be explained as formed from a troll exposed to sunlight. One of the most famous elements of Scandinavian folklore, trolls are depicted in a variety of media in modern popular culture. The equivalent being in Shetland and Orkney folklore is known as a "trow". [link]
