The One Ring: Misty Mountains Goblin

More art made for The One Ring, the new Tolkien table top rpg coming soon from Cubicle 7 and Sophisticated Games.

With the orcs/goblins I've designed I've really tried to make them threatening and frightening. Orcs in Tolkien are unique, often ancient, spiteful, merciless and cruel creatures. I really wanted the illustrations to reflect that.

  1. They should have hired you for the Hobbit movie. I'm sure you would have been an enrichment to it.

    Since I just found out about Artrage I'm pretty interested in the process of your work on this piece. Maybe you could show some WIPs sometime :]
