Aye, elves are overrated. Good posing in the picture. The elf's crouching really makes him look even punier than what he already is compared to the orc, not to mention the horrified face. The big fellah's posing, expression, everything makes him really stand out as the one in charge in this picture. As for the background, the simple shading works well, even if it's quite different style wise compared to the characters. It's the lack of lines. All in all, a very nice picture.
