More Shaintar characters

The Shaintar Orc, Assassin, and Troglodyte. I've often done pencil fantasy art with a more comic book approach to proportion, shape, costume and detail. It's a simple, and easily exagerated way to illustrate fantasy characters. After all, these creatures are all imaginary anyway right?
But with this book, I really wanted to take a different approach and keep things as realistic as possible. Yes, they are wearing some fairly impractical armor, and in some cases, wielding some damn oversized weaponry, but with enough realism in the same image that I think it balances out a lot better.
