How to draw Orc from World of Warcraft. Learn to draw a male Orc character from a drawing video lesson and step by step images with in depth detail instruction. In this tutorial, you will learn to draw a male Orc creature, one of playable races from World of Warcraft. This is a quick demo drawing that took me about twenty minutes to draw just for purpose of making a tutorial. It is also a sketching practice, not a finished drawing or refine concept art. This tutorial will show you how to draw an Orc’s head, facial feature, hair, and part of his torso. First, I usually start drawing simple geometry shapes to established base or drawing foundation of a character. It is an easy way to achieve accurate proportion. Then we can build the detail on top of the foundation. It is important to get correct shape, proportion, and position for initial sketch first. Remember to observe the object carefully then keep it simple and keep the foundation correct before you drawing on top of it.
The green-skinned orcs are one of the most prolific races of Azeroth. Born on the world of Draenor, the orcs were brought to Azeroth through the dimensional gateway known as the Dark Portal and waged war on the humans while under the influence of the Burning Legion. The orcs once cultivated a noble, shamanistic society on Draenor. Tragically, the proud orc clans were corrupted by the Burning Legion and used as pawns in the Legion’s invasion of Azeroth. The orcs managed to rebel, however, and they were ultimately able to help turn the tide against their demon masters. Led by the young Warchief Thrall, the orcs have reclaimed their strength and honor. The orcs moved from the Eastern Kingdoms to Kalimdor, and there they founded the nation of Durotar.
Now, the orcs stand ready to fight not for the sake of conquest, but for their very right of survival in their adopted world.

Here is a final drawing of a male Orc.

Below are step by step how to draw an Orc. Step one, since Orc facial structure are similar to regular human, I will just start the same way as drawing a head’s shape.  Then I will slowly apply detail so that he will look more creature like. I then carefully position his eyes, nose and mouth so that he won’t look like normal human’s face. Also I make the shape of his eyes, nose and mouth differ from that of humankind.  Watch the video tutorial above for more detail on how to draw Orc.
