Well...I do like the second pose--but Nsiki has a point that the first one looks more natural.  The second one gives the impression that he's actually posing for the picture (which is why it has a slightly more dramatic flair and why people like it, I guess)

As to background--well, the Wilderon heaths are bordered by mountains on several sides, so mountains are fine.  I'm assuming the orc is closer to the southern side near the forested areas (the tree is a clue) so some other trees, such as the tulmine, the wolf willow and the arvins cedar, might be likely.  Other plants that would grow here would be types such as juk'lan, mutliweed, poeritt, blackmoss, lythien moss, rockmoss, koeken fungus (maybe on the tree itself) and so on.  I think most of these, except for the last one, don't have pictures for their entry yet.  I hope this is helpful and saves you some research time.

Alysse

edit:  BTW, I gave you an aura point for the picture because I like it so much.  And thought I'd mention it here to remind other people that you deserve it.

And an Aura boost from me as well, Faugar. Just for being so damn talented!

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

Back from the dead.... here comes another incarnation of the orc image!
I tried Artrage on it, a very nice application I must add. Hence the "painterly" look.
Still not finished, but I'm working on it again. Any comments are most welcome and appreciated!

The colours, the composition, the shadows, the gestures, the skill with which they are all executed... I am lost in admiration...

Wow.  Another wonderful pic, Fauger.  Very much reminds me of Charlie Russel in the way you have composed it here.  Well done.

Keep piling those aura points on, folks - Santharia's most loyal and talented masterartist is seriously underrepresented there.

The whole atmosphere is indeed painterly, soft yet rough at the same time.  To me it expresses that Northern wilderness (far more effectively than a more 'polished' style in which all surfaces are meticulously glossy and photorealistic) and that 'stripped-for-action' sense around Orc and Warg....

Love that composition - less dramatic and yet more authentic at the same time!

Wow, Faugar. It has been so long since we have seen your masterpieces around these parts, and by golly, have you delivered yet again!

Absolutely stunning! I love the "painting" effect you gave it. It feels authentic.

Just one teeny question. How is it that we can see into both ends of the log? Unless, of course, it's a very bent log?  ;)

For the sake of rationalizing, it could simply be that one side of the log is a little bit more busted up than the other on that end, allowing us to see the other side, without actually seeing inside.

Thank you all! There are a few things I want to change, and the log is one of them (Valan got it right, but it does look odd). If there are any comments about the clothing, now's the time to share them :)
