I had a sudden urge the other day to build an orekroark head figure out of sculpy. The figure conveniently ended up looking like Rajah and I took advantage of that today to do rapid head studies. I've always had trouble drawing the awkward face length of orekroark and the angles just kill me, so this little head sculpture is coming in a wonder of help to figuring those things out. It looks a little awkward in some places because my observation to sketching skills have drastically decreased in the last two years. But I plan on exercising that a lot from now on and my orekroark studies will help me with that. At any rate the general shape and angle of the head is thanks to the sculpture, but the details like the eyes, mane and ears are added on. The angle on the top and the very left are ones that were sitting. The other three were held in my hand and it was getting difficult to hold them in the same position and draw consistently so they got rough.
Rajah is my main orekroark character, and will probably be frequenting my Hup journal regularly for some doodle studies. For now, have this.
Rajah and Hup belong to me.
