Orko

A little creepier than normal, but I picture him as being a loyal ally, just like in the toon. I'm thinking kind of like Gollum from LOTR...but without the deceptive and evil nature ;) He's eccentric and likable, but people are put off by his frightening appearance, which is why he is so loyal to those who have chosen to look past the first glance and gotten to know him. But, unlike in the toon, this Orko is very, very in control of his powers. Maybe not quite as powerful as The Sorceress, but more than a match for Evil Lynn or Shadow Weaver.

It's some sort of mystic rune that's vaguely shaped like an O. I figured that made more sense for the character than actually having a giant O on his shirt ;P

This is awesome!
It reminds me of 200X, but way more creepier and cooler.. Great concept for "O" symbol.. And, why no ears?

It's not big deal, he looks equally cool without them.

Thanks! As much as I love Orko, I always thought he was kind of wasted as a character.

Thanks! I've actually seen a couple of Orko's kinda like this one since I posted it. Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks he should be a little less goofy.

The lighting on this is awesome, and I LOVE the interpretation of Orko's O. Faved for a great redesign.
