DOrc/k


Waaay back at the start of my pro comics career, when Warhammer Monthly was still a comic, I was pitching to try and draw some Orcs. The editor (Christian Dunne) was a top bloke, but found it hysterical that I didn't know the difference between Orc and Ork (to this day I still don't know the difference, which shows you: there's ALWAYS a bigger nerd...) Anyhue, here's one of the pitch sketches.

Wowzers I never heard of the Warhammer comic. Is an Ork a big Orc?

That's lovely PJ. Very Nowlan-y, minus the spotted blacks.

I AM that bigger nerd.

Orc = Warhammer.
Ork = Warhammer 40k.

Nice! I've alwys loved the visual aesthetic of the Games Workshop stuff. Dunno if the fiction surrounding it is much cop, but I'd say it's fun to draw. Nice Hatchwork.
