Hi everybody!

I like to draw illustrations that explore strength, anatomy, etc., so I decided to draw an Orc because it embodies characteristics. I wanted to explore these elements by showing that even though this warrior is alone he is not intimated by his enemies.

As usual, I started by drawing the background and then moved onto the character (Fig.01). In the beginning I did not concern myself with the details but focused on perspective, anatomy and movement instead. The details were added later, using different colors.

I used the brush in Fig.02 to make a draft image and to work out my color scheme too. I just varied the flow when it was needed.

After the draft was done, it was time to start painting! I started by drawing the scenario I'd imagined because I intended to make this the basis for the character. For the sky I used references downloaded from www.cgtexture.org (Fig.03).
