The second VIC (Visions In Color) that I participated in was for VIC#5. I painted this orc in December of 2000.
You can see mine and many others at the miniature painting web site hosted by Dominic.
This was my first conversion to a miniature and I really liked the way this turned out. The original had a spear between the top hand and the bottom hand. I replaced the spear with a battle axe and a shield. I used the skull decoration from the spear on the shield.
I was also very pleased with the blending of colors on the horns and the plume. The cloak was allright - it was a very big piece to blend and I'm not sure if I put the shading and highlights in all the right spots - it's close.
