3 down, 1 left to go.
First ettin all done!
I never think of 2-headed giants when I hear the term “ettin” - instead it makes me think of Stargate’s goa'uld (which, of course, were called that by the Norse-style human cultures in that show precisely because they have “2 heads” - just one is inside the other). Possibly I’ve just watched that show too many times.
He does seem vexed, doesn't he?
Oh look, another orc!
The orcs just keep on comin'
Second of the orc token sketches.
I skipped ahead again. We had company over yesterday, and the image I had in mind for October 13th is a bit more time consuming, so it's not done yet. This one could be dashed off relatively quickly, though, so I decided to go ahead and do it first.
I did finish this last night, but it was late when I did, and I was super-tired, so I decided to wait until this morning to actually post it.
I must say, I am pretty happy with this one.
Just your average tusked, blue-skinned, pointy-eared warrior, flourishing a cutlass and battle axe while roaring in overwhelming rage.
I actually had to mostly draw this guy twice, because I realized about 2/3 of the way through the sketch that the angle and pose I had him in would take up far too much horizontal space to fit into the necessary square space of a the final token product and still be at the same scale as all the others.
I probably won't post anything new for the next few days, as I'm going to be out of town for the remainder of the week. More when I get back!
