ogre magi vs. orc warrior by jouste ogre magi vs. orc warrior by jouste
here's my entry for the blizzard art contest.

blizzcon sure looked crazy from the vids i ended up seeing. a big hooray for everybody there. congrats on your awesome success.

i figured that i've put enough hours into their games that i can spare a few for some fanage.

I always loved the idea of the classic ogre-mage, a giant caster that can hurl lightning, bench boulders, and take a beating.

So I threw him up against a beefy orc grunt with a trusty axe and shield.

The ogre-magi is shaking up things with an earthquake spell but our orc friend is ready to take on the seismic assault and return some punishment with his tools of trauma.

Good luck brave orc! Here's hoping you pummel that blue behemoth into paste!

I'm sure Mr. Orc can take that run-o-the-mill mob...he looks like he's a tank anyway, so it'll take more than one guy to bring him down. :O Definitely a sweet picture. All kinds of awesome detail in action. :D

Whoa nice!
Blizzcon looked pretty ace, even more incentive to save up the pennies and go some time haha.
Shame man, I was about to start some sketches and ideas for the Blizzard art contest too, but now, seein' this, perhaps that's not such a swell idea. ;)
Keep it up buddy!
