Hey guys, I finished my first high resolution portrait for the horde. It shows the boss of the wild tribes, Gnar ‘Zhak. More will show up soon.
Hey guys, I finished a little mood painting for my private project “the horde”. I am quite not sure if I should keep working on it, so I will ignore the painting one or two days to get some distance to it.
Anyway how do you like it?
So, I tried to figure out how my orcs should look like, the first head sketches helped me to fix some ugly face issues I had with this painting earlier. To be true, it wasn’t this bad, but it lacked a little bit of aggressiveness. So I added some more sharp tooth’s and less “lips” to him, to achieve kinda “his jaw is just for bitting your flesh”- feeling.
Good morning guys, I did a little “step by step” picture how I tried to develop my first goblin. The rough sketch looks really shitty and I had no idea how it will look, but after I finished the first few values the overall head shape turned out quite well. What do you guys think?
You can see the final result in my gallery! 😉
So, today I moved a little back from my normal work progress and start to sketch a little bit more. I feel very comfortable to explore some styles without thinking about, light, values or colors. My first sketchy scribbles are focused about the head design of the “average” orc.
First I wanted to make them not so big and heavy, but I believe it’s important that I don’t move to far away from the feeling of orcs everybody is familiar with. Anyway, I will try to add a pint of “special” to them.
I did some early helmet explorations, based on some “classic” viking designs. So here are some of my first props fresh made out of the forge of fire. The helmets should be made out of looted and/ or bad self forged things. Because I want my orcs to be focused on brute strength and less on armor and helmets.
I think I will do some more different styles, perhaps with less iron and more bones, fabrics and wood. Stay tuned!
