A scary Orc that looks intensely angry, intelligent, and undead.

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.
Красиво.

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.

This is stunning. Just like she might jump out of the paper in any second.
Even more impressive since it is "just" a sketch.
Wow!

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?

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.

Вот и я против идеи, что орки были жалкими уродцами.  Мелькор с его любовью к вещам красивым и величественным вряд ли такое слелал бы, тем более из эльфов)

ой я чую тем искажения, эт какой-то философский диспут, можно говорит много и долго)
просто ты очень классно рисуешь и все тут, вот это главное
 и не важно кого эльфов орков или еще кого-то, я тобой восхищаюсь!

EKukanova Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2016
Спасибо, друг!   Да, тему искажения стоит переосмыслить, и как следует)  мне вот ради этого наброска пришлось вжиться в роль Мелькора, чтоб нормально исказить эльфа,  а не просто "нарисуй самую страшную антропоморфную тварь, какую сможешь представить")

ик) я аш икнула про самую страшную антропоморфную тварь!
Нуу, дааа, это заставляет пофилософствовать так или же иначе, озадачиться идеей)
ну тем орков может вообще самая сложная, ну как на мой личный вкус...

This is a perfect perversion of your breathtaking rendition of Middle Earth's Firstborn. Even your grotesque is beautiful, and fittingly so; it is not hard to see that this is the flipside of the coin: faint echoes of the grace is still there, and glimpses of the ethereal birthright of the elves manifest in the ears and the exquisite lines and angles of the face. Your talent is truly a gift! Thank you for consistently sharing it with us, and for choosing Tolkien as your means of expression ♥

Truly, I tried to forget everything that I saw about orks, and remember that Tolkien said of this race, I tried to draw here an elf after Morgot's distortion, and I'm truly happy if my thoughts of orks are apparent here. :thanks:

Very well done, Elena. Too many orc renditions are cute or stupid-looking. This one most certainly is neither. An opponent to be feared.

Thank you very much, Steven!  I thought a lot of this race, so here a result of my reflections), also I think that to belittle an opponent is belittle a deed.
