Eye Gouger pillages and loots kingdoms aplenty. He wears a mixture of rags and gold for this reason. If you manage to kill this orc boss, he may just drop his favorite sword for you--named after him. It has a 6% crit chance which is 1% more than the other swords of the game so you can brag about it
Here's mine, plus character sheet and initial thumbs. My take on this is the Orcs are kinda like Spartan warriors, with very little armour except on their backs to prevent accidental spears/treacherous other orcs stabbing them in the back during battle. The main pic shows Eye-gouger in his signature move to strike fear into his enemies, displaying his long, taloned fingers above his head. If you see this, chances are its the last thing you will see!
Initial thumb designs:
His's big, he's mean, he's oversharped he's Eye-Gouger!
He doesn't need much armour and trinkets, he's got a bunch of lucky eyes instead. To tell the truth some of them are made of glass, but if you knew that you're as good as dead, no matter whether you're human, goblin, elf or even ork.
Hear his battlecry and tremble!!!
A very interesting round to say the least. Went for a gladiator/ pit fighter style orc should've shown how he takes em eyes, struggled with the background. Over all I'm happy with the way it turned out.
here is my entry . Having a great week
This was a lot of fun. I'm excited for the next one.
The orc hordes scour the realm and the fiercest band is led by Eye Gouger. Scorning man's pretensions for wealth and decoration, he fights without jewelry and without protection. He fights naked, his brute power the only ornament he needs. His horde does not fight for gold or tribute or property. He rules no lands and holds no titles. He fights for the only emotion orc's value; the glory of seeing men run in fear before you. The all-consuming ecstacy that comes when hearing the crack of their broken bones, the wheezing gasps for breath as death overtakes them, and the wailing of their widows before the horde ravishes them. And above all, the sweet jelly of men's eyes, freshly plucked from their skull.
He is Eye-Gouger. A blight upon the world.
Thanks for the help- particularly Lightpunk, who gave some spot-on advice for improvements. The finished product is much better thanks to you.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the
mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all
science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who
can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
The Gouger - Orc Warlord

The first of many failures in a series of experiments in orc-human relations, eye-gouger's tribe was betrayed by the orc agent upon whom they were dependent upon for rations from the human Kingdom. His own eye being gouged mercilessly by soldiers of the kingdom, his twisted mind can only find solace when he extracts the same brutality on the race of man.
(Eye-gouger's attacks have a 20% chance of blinding his enemy, 30% if he's underbloodlust)
This orc warlord is infamous for gouge out the eyes of his fallen enemys with his obsidian glove. The gouged out eyes adorn his belt.
Had a lot of fun with this one. Great entries all around.
Just for fun.
~ Note to next week, don't start Saturday ~ And so many lovely orcs this week
