I gave my creativity a cesarean section to deliver this piece! The hardest part was actually getting it to a level where I am somewhat satisfied with the result. I will still probably make sporadic adjustments to it.

I tried to depict a scene involving female orcs, however, I wanted to do so without making them green or ugly.

I kept a small palette (not completely optimized), and drew it from scratch. Layers, filters, indexing, and scanning were not used.

this is very well done and interestingly anachronistic.  Whom are the orcs?  The little guy in the woods or the gals?  If its the ladies then, I have to say, as much as i don't want to play the race card its interesting that you didn't want to do real orcs so instead you drew some black ladies.  Which is creatively cool but politically questionable.  note that I'm not judging just curious.

Very nice :)

Chaos Design (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/15/2008 07:33
Wow im speechless.

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 6/13/2008 00:02
I love this. Everything seems so well planned and made! It makes me crazy to see something this good.

Sprites Toolbox (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/6/2008 13:41
Its fantastic!
Though i should say that they look more like elves than orcs. Because one thing is having not ugly orcs but having cute orcs is totally opposite!
Great job!

japez (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/13/2008 00:19
Love it. I like how you didn't make it the typical orc.

Acherhar (Level 5 Amethyst) @ 4/2/2008 10:47
That sky and foliage did it for me. It looks like I could jump right in! Quite possibly my most favorite piece ever.

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/15/2007 16:58

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 11/14/2007 08:26

Tirza (Level 1 Gangster) @ 11/11/2007 04:45
Holy jesus, only a true top-artist could've made this.

YungYankee (Level 1 Gangster) @ 11/10/2007 19:54
Nice booties. lol . Very good work.

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/10/2007 12:37
I like big butts and I can not lie
you other brothers can't deny
that when a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waist
and a round thing in your face
you get sprung.

but seriously though this is awesome

dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/27/2007 02:18
marvelous! very plastic and palette is very nice too... thumbs up!

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 9/8/2007 11:10
well... the part of not making the orcs ugly and green... you did well, although id say they look more like black women guarding the area around a village or something... colours are awesome, idea is cool and yes, i just have to say it, you didn't make the "orcs" ugly, you made them beautiful (an orcs dream maybe)?

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/24/2007 22:29
Agreed, rockybolan, yeah! Nice pixel. Btw what is that little red creaturein the small pixel?

Drako (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/24/2007 03:47

Zero Power (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 7/7/2007 09:22
A non-green orc wouldn't that be just like human or an elf if they have pointy ears? Anyway godlike.

Presley (Level 1 Seaman) @ 6/20/2007 01:31
Just wow. Best pixelart I've ever seen. The colour use is especially superb.

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 5/13/2007 14:51
Nice. So much detail in the piece. The ladies doesn't look like orc's at all but very good.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/21/2007 08:01
Great work on the nature, especiallt the leaves in the back. Only thing i dont like is the decapitated head, it looks too clean cut. The shrooms make up for it! ;D

cerealkiller54 (Level 6 Made) @ 2/19/2007 17:20
Orcs? They look like beefy ladies...

Boder (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 2/15/2007 19:40
You know it's good when those supreme bootays aren't the best part!
