How to Draw an Orc

Artist: Dawn / January 3, 2008

Step 1.

Simply start with a circle. This is where all the ingredients will be stirred in. You will then add the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

You will start this next step by sketching out the lining for the hair style and then the shape of the eyebrows and then the shape of the nose and top line for the mouth as shown to you here.

Step 3.

Next in this step which is step three you will start sketching out the hair style which are bangs and then some wrinkles around the sides of the nose. You will now add the shape of the bottom fang like teeth and then the bottom lip line.

Step 4.

Now because Orcs have misshapen faces, you will need to make sure that your fantasy creature is a bit odd looking as well. All you will do here in this fourth step is add the shape of his eyes and eyeballs. Next draw out the rest of the teeth shaping   

Step 5.

This is your last drawing step and all you have to do now is draw out the remaining teeth and add some cracks in them. You will add some definition around the lips and then draw a flaming ring around the head. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that   

Step 6.

Once you are done with your drawing you should have an Orc that looks like the one you see here. All you have to do now is color him in and you have just learned how to draw an Orc step by step. See how easy that was!

Description: Hey everyone it’s me Dragon_Queen yet again. I’m actually on another mission to complete my new portfolio on mythical creatures. I previously sketched out an Orc which came out mediocre, but like I said I’m new to the whole fantasy creature thing. I admit I put up a few tutorials on this site that seemed like some were better then others, but understand that the ones that are better those are my specialty. I get into drawing monsters from far away lands and fairies that have a bad streak in them. My ultimate favorite thing to draw would have to be animals. Not just lions and tigers but Dragons as well. I’m also thinking about putting up a tutorial on drawing a Gryphon, but that will be in the near future. One new thing I have noticed is that there is a comment box on this site now. I would love to get some feed back on fellow artist to tell me what I’m doing wrong or even what I’m doing right. I really didn't take my time with this Orc and that is because I got frustrated. But you can still learn how to draw an Orc with this tutorial all you have to do is follow the step by step instructions and modify the Orc as you go along. In the future I will submit a better looking Orc that you will be happy to draw from. Until next time my fellow artist.
