    Some sort of fad, I would guess was started by the new interest in LOTR that the movies seem to have stirred.

    Why does it matter?

    Hi John,

    I suppose that there is a lot of "fan-art" and inspiration of stuff like Warcraft and LOTR around that is especially effecting people who have more to think about technique than about ideas. Beside orcs there are lots of cliché pictures around (my own included).

    I myself had to draw Orks for a table-top-game and will have to draw them for an illustration-project for a "classic" RPG. I´m not very inclined to draw them (besides about 400 painstakingly painted Warhammer-miniatures ) but sometimes you need to be generic.

    I personally will support Roundeye in drawing many women - if it´s needed to I will do them halfnaked and with Machine-guns!

    John Doe Humpface: John Mueller started a thread where he was redesigning the ork the way HE thought it should look,, and i guess a lot of people liked the idea of the challenge.. i guess thats it. its kinda the same sort of thing as the new thunderdome, but a biger pool of characters to draw from..

    Orcs are very cool and fun to draw, nuff said.

    I started drawing as a hobby at about age seven, and through my freshman year of high school I either drew orcs, magic-related stuff, armor, or buildings.

    There was much rejoicing in the realm of the Harvest Gods when man created the beer, light could not penetrate.

    orcs are evil. evil characters are often the way cooler ones.

    nobody knows what orcs derived from, what orcs are, where they are placed in the fantasy world of your choice's evolution, so lots of free room for you to fill.

    orcs are often described as war-loving and organized in kind of tribes - break from your default elven or human society, lots of body modifications and stuff.

    nerds prefer orcs

    Orcs are a species that was adapted by tolkien and d&d which of course made it completely ripped by every other fantasy book/game. The same with elfs, if there were more girls on this site there would be more elfs i'm sure..

    They are an easy race to do conceptual work for since they are just barbaric, "stupid", neanderthals.

    When trying to make a story with no real plot usually orcs and be stuck in for no reason. People don't ask, so uh...why are the orcs attacking my home again? It's just accepted...
