Well, I based this of my drawing of Am'ar Gaardos, an orc character I've used in several roleplays, including my all new roleplay, Avataria - be sure to check it out! :)

Ideas, constructive criticism, feedback and suggestions to improve the icon are very appreciated. Enjoy :)

    Add more shadows\highlights, get rid of black lines, make him to look more 3rd-ish.

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions. New version available, with a lot more highlights and shadows, but decided to keep the black lines, as I like a little cartoony look :)
    This mean I will get a better-looking avatar too! Yay! :D

    Try to change the background color, to be more visible your orc. As it is now (small scale) the two shades of green are almost confused.
    You kidding? :)

    Dat ass. :ogre_datass:

    Well someone had to point out that similarity... lol :grin:

    Overall I like it, its a very orky self portrait if I do say so myself, one question though...

    Are your tusks supposed to be upside now? From what I know of Warcraft orcs the tusks on men protrude from the lover jaw not the upper. Is that just an aesthetic choice on your part?

    @Cakedog345:
    Seriously? Jeez, that sucks, I'll try update it then :l

    Oh and well, I used him in a couple of RP's and the color of his faction were teal. That's why :b

    @Jake Command Wolf:
    Hehe, if you check out my Art-album, you'll see how this character have evolved through the years. He started out to be a peon, and that kinda explains his weird tusks :b

    @Vista sucks & Lembidi:
    Thanks, I'll add "Gangsta" to the keywords! :D

    it still looks a tad blurry. i think that is because of the resize and in the future you would need to address that issue after you have resizzed the icon.

    for now, i will approve it but keep this in mind next time.
