Thank Illuvatar! An orc that is not warhammer/ completely monstruous! I think this is closer to the true Tolkien concept...
Well, in fact, thank YOU Elena!

Thank you very much!  I'm follow the explanation there orks are distorted elves)

Impressive - and unusual - in that you can SEE the elf in him.

What Captain said. A good reminder that orcs were once elves.

A scary Orc that looks intensely angry, intelligent, and undead. 
EKukanova's avatar
Thank you! I tried to put exactly that impression)

He looks like a more impressive Uruk sized ancestor to the Moria Orcs perhaps crossed with the Strangers from "Dark City".

Очень интересный образ. Ощущается, что это не просто полуживотное, какими обычно изображают орков, а вполне себе представитель вполне себе самобытной расы и народа, пусть злого и жестокого.

Спасибо!  да, стадо животных вряд ли смогло бы нанести такой урон к концу Первой эпохи, даже под грамотным руководством)

Кстати, мне очень импонируют и образы Ваших квенди. Красивые, благородные, сильные и мудрые, с пламенем сильного духа в глазах. Их образы, их доспехи...всё это откликается.
Буду с нетерпением ждать Ваших новых работ.

love the blood spatters all over the drawing, as if just the act of drawing him is enough to make you bleed...    ;-)

This is stunning. Just like she might jump out of the paper in any second.
Even more impressive since it is "just" a sketch.
EKukanova's avatar
Thank you very much!^^   sometimes "unfinished" works looks more imoressive then totally complete)

Intriguing orc, fitting the version of orcs origins from the Elves. Not a mindless  best.
But - why is it among drawings? Is the face also a drawing or painted?
EKukanova's avatar
Thank you very much, Karolina! exactly, I tried to draw here a twisted elf)
This work is done with watercolours and white gouache, but I considering this one as a grisalle with a bit of red)

I love this drawing. It keeps coming up in my suggested pictures to look at. I love it so much. Seriously, it's beautiful and has an almost organic feel to it. Gorgeous.
