He wanted a sexy orc with some very specific accessories.
Tried to not get stuck on any one area with this one. One of my faults is that I'll spend like 80% of my time on a single area, usually the face, and as a result the rest of the painting suffers. With this, I made a conscious effort not to do that.
Also, I tried not to second guess myself and have more confidence in my initial strokes. Instead of rendering and reeditting and rendering some more. I just put stuff down and stuck with it.
