Please read http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/Man (could be a bit outdated?)
We are not going to have orc's in TMW (afaik)

Comments on the art itself: the first one fits the world better IMO.

When you want it to be a monster you should go for a different stature and body language.

I would also suggest not to call it "Orc" because I consider it very uncreative to copy the same old fantasy stock creatures.

I agree.. Orc will definitely not be the final name,
in fact this project was just sort of a gauge of how my art would sit in the mana world

I have since abandoned it for other designs, soon to be posted about ;)

can close this if mods like

Here's a rough rework I call dirtman. I haven't worked with pixelart before, so I'll try to get down some techniques if I keep at it.

I like the skinny look of it. The club should be bigger IMO.

Last try for right now. I think I'm starting to get the hang of pixel editing. ;)

I liked the version 4 better. The darker eyes and the shading around them give it more character and the changes at the outline were unnecessary. But it was good to remove the stray alpha.
