Orc Taming Pack

Submitted by Ceterai
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Inspired by elven taming ability.
All icons are slight edits of each other and were made through direct-size editing.
Thought people might find these useful.
I'm not good at drawing hands, especially orcish ones, so I'm perfectly fine with this being set as substandard.

The list of icons:

  • OrcTameBear;
  • OrcTameBoar;
  • OrcTameDragon;
  • OrcTameDragonRed;
  • OrcTameHyp;
  • OrcTameKodo - I know his theeth seem weird, but that's how they look in kodo icon;
  • OrcTameWolf;
  • OrcTameOrc - you know, the birds, the bees, and the weird fetishes;
  • OrcTame - just a blank hand with food;
  • OrcTrade - a version with a sack of gold;
  • OrcFill.

I find this useful, tho it uses a lot of CnP. Also I have questions to some of this Icons - for me wolf seems to be unreadable at all, Kodo looks more like gorilla (why don't you pick Kodo Devour Icon, I believe it will suit better), and OrcTameOrc...
Maxwell
Well, now It looks much better, as for me. Even that it is 50% CnP (at least hand itself is drawn by you), as a pack I believe it is worth of approval.

I would also suggest to narrow the flow of that dust thing on BTNOrcFill and make it actually falling on top of the pile, because at first this Icon seemed to me like a tree log growing from a hands.

    Devour icon would definitely suit better, and I even tried to go with it at first, but I simply couldn't make it readable enough because of the relative orc-to-kodo size. Even "closing" its mouth didn't help much, so I desided to go with the gorilla-looking one :)

    Slightly changed OrcTameWolf - now it should be more reconizable.

    Now I can't unsee that :gg: Also tried to fix it, hopefully now it looks more dust-like.

    Nice pack! though maybe you can darken the wolf nose to make it more recognizable, and maybe pick another orc mouth? it looks kinda weird, more like a thunder lizard mouth :p

    Thanks :)
    I chose wyvern rider's mouth mainly because it was wide open and had a perfect angle for this icon, but if you have a suggestion to what mouth would suit better I can give it a try!
    As for wolf's nose, since it is slighly brighter then the furr, making it darker would make it blend in, and making it even darker would make it blend in with the background. If you still want that, I can pm you both darker versions :smile:

    I was thinking of something like this, maybe adding a highlight on the nose so it doesn't blend at all with the black background?

    Oh, I see now. Yup, that definitely helps. I still like light version a little bit more, but this is also a good idea.
    I also tried to change nose form, but I'm not sure if it looks better.
