Without warning in the darkness of the night they came, hundreds of Orcs. They silently over took the town sentries and poured swiftly through the town’s unguarded gate like a green tide. The men and women were caught asleep and unaware as the marauders proceeded to burn and plunder the peaceful township. This is a piece I did in mid July 2005; it was done in pencil and inked with a brush and a pen. The image was then scanned into Photoshop and colorized with a little assistance from Illustrator. The big green guys are Orcs with their smaller green counterparts the Goblins. The gigantic blue guys in the background are giants Trolls. This is the first full fully rendered picture of an Orc I’ve done I got a little crazy with the diagonal facial slope. I think the trolls may be a little too gigantic. I really wanted to play with perspective in this one I think it turned out fairly well. With the woman being dragged down the Street by her hair I elongated her neck to show the strain it was putting on her but I think I over exaggerated it too much. I also need to work more on getting head size proportions better.
