Oooh, I like the background foliage. Is it a custom brush? If so it's a very good one used particularly well with a nice variety of shape and angle. It all fits believably into the landscape and helps to show that transition of depth.

Valence: Thank you, and yes it is a custom brush! Glad to hear it works well! :)

I'm ready to begin working on a new illustration! I wanted to do something simpler this time so I opted for a portrait, this time depicting an Warcraft-inspired Orc which should make for some fun subject matter. I worked on the sketch a great deal, very pleased with how it turned out although I would very much appreciate some feedback before the painting process, just to make sure I get everything right. Here is the sketch:

Valence: Indeed, the rendering took quite some time to get right, had to give it multiple passes but overall I'm satisficed with how it turned out, so it was well worth it!

I worked on the Orc a great deal, put a lot of effort into this one and it came out much more realistic than I thought it would, but I feel it works well. Here is the final image followed by a step by step animation, hope you enjoy!

He could maybe do with a bit of shadow in the right of his face cast by the chainmail.
