Zârock, the Orc Monk, was born in a monastery and then abandoned by his parents. This Orc became the bruiser of the monastery. Protecting his fellow monks, he uses brute force and finesse. He’s agile but powerful. Few locals are willing to mess with the monastery after this orc came of age.
I initially drew/painted this in 2018 but returned to rework and then add color to the piece. I wanted to take the piece to a more finished state. In doing so, I learned a lot about painting in Photoshop and the power and versatility of Photoshop’s toolset. I loved learning how to use gradient maps and the mixer brush. I had a blast with this!
