    Orc description is from Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition (200 on Wikipedia.

    I like it, good job, very interesting also the background texture.
    I personally painted to make it look more ferocious.

    Thanx Valerio,but I wanted to give it a more neutral interpretation, just as if posing for a portrait...the background it's a part of an old illustration I did for a Boardgame...

    Really nice work, but I think that the paragraph of text needs a little work typographically, the rag or right edge of your paragraph is a little to jagged. But the Orc looks great love his expression!

    Oh thats cool! The orcs in Peter Jackson's films were fairly dark and having your design so dark- so primitive - that its close to neaderthal; is a breath of fresh air.

    NathanLong: Thanx
    Serpian: Thanx
    LukeBerliner: Thanx for your comment Luke. The "jagged" text is intentional, to give much dinamism to the image, that is static for the nature of the portrait. Thanx again for your time and your compliments on the characters!
    plantman: Yeah, I think an orc should be primitive and neanderthalian, you'r right!

    Thanx all again!
