I painted the piece for one of the Ouroboros Kickstarter stretch goals (creating a painting journal as I want) and had a blast working on it. I wanted to do something a little different with the figure. So I'm depicting a scene where the otherwise savage orc is momentarily calmed by nature. I hope you enjoy the end result!

    Man, that orc is so dead. Never touch brightly colored fauna o_O

    • David Powell

      I thought it was never get involved in a land war in Asia… but never touching brightly colored fauna is also good advice.

  • Roman LappatPLUS

    I was happy to see it in my hands. Will have feedback for you from the judging point of view at NOVA soon. I mean as soon as I am back on track. Slowly recovering, but happy.

    • David Powell

      Thanks, Roman and no rush.  While I am eager to hear your feedback, I want you to be able to enjoy your recovery time after all of your hard work at NOVA.  Even a painting Jedi like you needs time to rest and recharge!
