Big Moody Orc of War wonders - Why bother at all? by TheClawTheySay
Big Moody Orc of War wonders - Why bother at all?
I can't recall just how many years I've been drawing the same sort of saggy / snug nosed / derpy toothed style orc, but I probably will never stop.

Since I'm still getting the hang of the best way to do tonal values, blending, sharp edges and textures I found doing the image in greyscale first, then turning that layer into a multiply on top of the color layer works well for me.  It prevents me from getting caught up mixing the colors while I'm still working on shape & texture rendering skills.

But seriously, what would they look like if they got old?  Liver spots?  Do they have liver to make spots? Are their teeth like human and would fall out, or are they like cartilage and keep growing?

One thing I know for sure, they'd have bad feet from walking around all the time while "In the service" and they'd be grumpy telling tales all about their friends that that maniac plumber squashed.
The way I pictured Octoroks from Legend of Zelda by TheClawTheySay
The way I pictured Octoroks from Legend of Zelda
I started this little beastie to promote an upcoming Masters of Unlocking Halloween Mascot contest, and when I checked Zelda Wiki for a reference image I was surprised at how differently they were depicted in Oot compared to how I pictured them from playing the NES & SNES Legend of Zeldas.  

So, I just continued with my own concept.  Perhaps this is a divergent species of Octoroks, ones that were more Octo than Rock.

My Let's Play channel is doing a different game every day in "honor" of Halloween, so in the promotional vid we made, I added in fake VHS style to it because we're acting like doofuses, hoping that it will get people to let their guard down for a quick jump scare.
Egads! A Retro Brainy Space Explorer! by TheClawTheySay
Egads! A Retro Brainy Space Explorer!
Forcing myself to try other materials / substances than "squiggly / blodgy skin" I found an old drawing from 2012 that I was never very keen on, and decided to bring it to life.

Fortunately I got to enjoy a little bit of squiggly skin by doing the brain, while I made some progress on the retro-future space suit and metal claws.

I've still got a ways to go developing my blending and tonal technique.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
As a child, I was very fortunate for my Mom to bring me to the Movie Rental store she worked at often, so I spent hours absorbing all the Movie Boxes, their stories and their art. Pair that with my favorite toys being Lego, Transformers, He-Man and GI Joe and when I wasn't drawing I was rocking the Atari 2600 with Crystal Castles, 25 years later, I am a Visual Artist.
