Orcs for Japan Relief, 2 of 3

My second sketch for Dice's Japan Relief Auction explores the relationship between an Orc and his steed, the voracious Warg (better known to modern science as Daeodon shoshonensis).



Called Vargr in their native Norse tongue, Wargs are described by Tolkien as large wolves with malignant intent. In actuality, they are closer related to their warthog-like entelodont (or "terminator pig") cousins Andrewsarchus and Archaeotherium, and are no more evil than any other ill-tempered pack-hunter.

Join us tomorrow as we examine Orcs' favorite pass-time.
