I was inspired by all the great orc paintings everyone's been doing over at conceptart.org (Especially John Mueller's post), so I thought I would do one as well. Instead of going with the normal green flesh I went with what you see here.

He was a lot of fun to paint and is a character I'd like to revisit at some point.
Comments are always welcome.

Bobo I love your gothic kind of art!! Damn straight up you're one hell of an artist!

Keep up the good work! :bounce:

Did you know that it was Blizzard that made 'em green in WarCraft.. So originally they're as you've illustrated or whatever your imagine can forge! ;)

nice work. :thumbsup:

i do feel however that the ear looks a little flat...and the shadow underneath his chin on his neckfeels like it should be a little darker and longer...

I love the brow and wrinkle detail

whoa wicked

Good work! :thumbsup:

I don't think Blizzard is to blame for green orcs ;)

They have been pretty damn green in the Games Workshop's Warhammer miniature game since the 80's I think.

Reminds me to the Tool video clip - AEnima.

Very cool work I really dig it

Front page material baby!

his mouth and eye kickass.

you bastard!

04-01-2003, 02:35 PM
Excellent artwork my fellow Texan! Thanks for the tips on your website in the tut section too. Great stuff!

04-01-2003, 04:58 PM
Hey, thanks everyone for the great comments!!!

heh, It's not a low poly model. This took me about 2 hours to digitally paint. It was extremely fun and was a great break from EF II. :)

Thanks again everyone.

Hmm. his chin has too much bumps. One would be enough I think. But within 2 hours - Great!

Off Topic:
Hey, Bobo what's with this 'relalistic human skin' on Darth Maul's face on your site? Could you give some guidelines how to do it?
I would go for the healing brush tool, get a pic of a body buider, then make use of the tool. And you?

Wrong, there are discriptions of green orcs in Tolkiens books as well as in Warhammer 40K and other sources. A ton of these came out way before Blizzard thought of orcs.

I cant recall Tolkien picturing the orcs as green, but GW has made them green since 75. (or when did they relase the first orcs?:shrug: ) Anyway i like that piece alot, however i find that little hair he got very disturbing :p

Incredibly talented and you know it ;) the only thing that bugs me is the representation of the fangs, they look flat and somewhat "painted" on if you know what I mean, but nonetheless awesome work :thumbsup:

Hey folks

Like it was said before, it's a great art piece. I saved it for further use of learning how to draw so great.
But to me, this dude looks more like a vampire from Buffy than an orc. I mean, the fangs and the tiny yellow eyes remind me alot of a vampire.

Still it's great work
