Some weirdos from my country have taken this picture as a real discription of an actual alien or lizardman and now they are discussing from which planet he is from or if he is a residant of the hollow earth. *lol*
They call him Draco or "Energy Vampire"
And you as an artist have inside to the truth. That is why you are able to depict him. ;-)

Here's the link to a screenshot of the discussion on facebook. But it's in german. Have fun with it:…

Amazing! You really captured the essence of the character, but evolved him to the next level entirely!

wow, he looks like someone wearing makeup or a really great motion capture piece.

who would you want to be him in a movie? I'd go for master bad guy extraordinaire Tim Curry.

Voldemort meets Bill Nighy.
nebezial Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013
puh lease....voldemort wishes he could be hordak XD
StaticBat83 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I meant more along the lines of combining two different characters or people and fuse them together to get Hordak. You have Voldemort's nose and Bill's mouth.

Amazing work.  This took an hour? That's incredible.

People, who think they're more talented than they are, always say, "just a quick sketch," or "this is just something fun / random / I doodled." You spent an hour on this drawing. That isn't a "doodle," and you didn't "mess around," and it wasn't a "quick" hour. You're talented, but you are definitely not humble.

Humble yourself. You may be able to do better, but you didn't. This is what you did. Until you are able to do better, don't pretend you can.
nebezial Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
XD see that is a nice theory.... but in practice, those who say something is a quick doodle usually mean it. they say it because they are used to work fast and work a lot, and due to high speed demand of their work, they rarely give more than 50 % of their maximum skills.

and you are right i am not humble. i am realistic. i know my skill level and recognize those superior to me, i worked hard for my skills, i worked my as off to get to the point where i can do this without any effort and mean it when i call it a doodle. i dont think i can do better, i know i can. i merely lack the free time to dedicate myself to things i am not paid to do :)

enjoy some of my quick doodles and tutorials on my youtube link in my signature

you might realize i mean what i say

fucking amazing... I wonder how would you make his teeth look like... I think they should be glowing red, glass like, like his eyes, and the filmation cartoon.

That's some great detail on Hordak's skin!
Averant Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, man.. I haven't seen this guy since sometime in the late 80's!

I really love how you've brought his design into the 21st century,
and yet kept enough of the original to make it instantly recognizable. :D
Very cool.

One of the most bad ass sculpts I have ever seen. Really, 1 hour?! Sheesh!

The greatest Hordak ever!

Looks like Voldemort was bitten by a vampire.

Holy crap, that would work in a movie.
bloodymorgan Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012
Fantastic stuff. Lovely when you can mix a nostalgia kick with something which also stands up as great artwork.
Phenixia Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012
Ah! Evil character of one of my favorite show when I was a kid! He's so often in the shadows of other evil characters!

The details on the textures and the colors is awesome!!!
Meme-Master Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
OMG! I saw this and just flipped! You did this in an hour? OmG.

I have a question for you if you don't mind answering?

I've been admiring your art work and I see you use Zbrush and Photoshop right? Well I wanted to ask. Do you think it would be easier or harder to create an entire comic with Zbrush modles. I was thinking it would be easier since you could make one modle and reuse them again in each scene, giving you a high quality picture without needing to redraw it, each time. (But you'd have to reposition it with another program or something right? Could you do that with peoples faces and detailed expression and such?)

I don't know, I'm very inexperienced but I have a long story I would like to make into a comic and I was wondering if that would be better for creating it. I'd love an artist like yourself's opion, seeing as the quality of your art is what I would like for my own. (like 8 years from now when I'm good enough to do it. ^_^ lol)

Thank you very much for sharing these amazing masterpeices, I'm not sure if/when Ravine will/has come out but I will definatly buy it. ^_^

(That...was kind of more than 1 question. LOL ^_^)
Thank you very much.
nebezial Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
definitely harder, the biggest problem in 3d is to create believable facial expressions, if they arent heavily referenced, models tend to get unrealistic auperfast.when drawn, a facial expression is a symbol on the paper, 3d render gives away any flaw and insecurity . so 3d is good for some things, but not so good for others
Meme-Master Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
Thank you very much ^_^ I'm big on facial expression fan, so that's a very important thing to know.

Really? 1 hour? This is yet again another wonderful rendering of one of my all time favourite characters. Amazing attention to detail and nice use of colours. What would happen if you had 2 hours?

I think he'd make a good character in an "Enemy Mine" like story.
