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.
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.
