Orc Choppa by DKuang Orc Choppa by DKuang
Like I've mentioned in the prior pieces, I've not done any digital coloring in about 4 years and prior to that I never really actually completed one entirely. Therefore, I decided to relearn it basically and stare at the computer screen instead of my usual paper for a change. Was a headache at start but if you can paint traditionally you CAN paint digitally. You just have to believe in your abilities and settle in. It'll feel natural, just give it some time. That's my one bit of advice to those who are still thinking about trying digital through a traditionalists point of view. :)

Did this for Warhammer Online's fan art submissions. I made a cheesy composite to kinda show how i sorta did it. It's not exactly step by step but you should get the general idea of progression. :D

Pencils, then inks, scanned in and done in PS-CS3 by me. Background map from Warhammer Online concept art.

I am just blown away at the details of this orc. I say WAAGH to those that aren't blown away by this. I play Dawn of War and a friend of mine plays orcs once in a while and loves to use the Choppas. I say it here and now, Awesome work from the artist.Not to mention the process of creating it. The chalk like lines on his blades really made my day that he counts his kills, and the map in the background. This is my first Art that I critic, so I hope you are inspired (or hopefully not weakened) by that fact. Keep doing what you are great at.
