One of the illustrators whose work I enjoy and admire, Zhu Bajiee, mentioned some sort of ‘Orctober’ thing where he presents images of orcs. OK, I can get on board with that.

Here is a drawing I did recently where I was trying out some sort of funky new Japanese brush pen thing (I really like it) and drew a character that I am working on for something else. He isn’t really an orc, but his face is fucked up and I guess that makes him orc-ish (sort of). Really, I just wanted an excuse to post this picture:

Then there is this picture that I drew a while ago of orcs hanging around killing and getting killed:

Castle Ortrar: Guarded by orcs wearing Converse All-Stars Hi-Tops.

I particularly enjoy the dude with an arrow in his forehead. Makes me chuckle every time.

And, finally, a drawing from a few years ago that I always liked. These are goblins (cousins of orcs, I guess), but I think close enough:

    I was afraid you were going to post _that one_ orc or goblin picture that created such a stir a few years back. 🙂
    Love the orctober meme.

    Happy Orctober! That Half orc is a solid piece of drawing. Fun stuff, nice attention to footware and headgear. And thanks for the shout-out.
