Orcs Art Collection Part 3

Some more orc artwork, possibly more familiar to many people as these two artists' work appear in many Tolkien calendars and books. The first is John Howe, who seems to have dedicated most of his life to illustrating scenes from Tolkien writings.

Alan Lee is probably best known of all these artists. The chances are that if you own an illustrated copy of the Lord of the Rings, it will be Alan Lee illustrations.

Both these artists were chosen by Peter Jackson to work on the film trilogy as art directors, so their interpretation of orcs should be recognisable to all gamers.

I love love LOVE Alan Lee. His sketch of Merlin redefined fantasy for me.
