Duncan Jones’ Warcraft is sadly over a year away, but we’re now finally getting a glimpse of how far the film is pushing visual effects. Wired has released the first Warcraft image, and rather than the human actors, it provides a close-up on the orc Orgrim Doomhammer (Robert Kazinsky). Per the official description, “Orgrim is Durotan’s right hand and a brave warrior destined to wield the Doomhammer: a weapon of orc legend.” (Durotan, played by Toby Kebbell, is the lead protagonist of the Horde and fighting to protect his people from extinction.)

According to Wired, Industrial Light and Magic took concept art from Blizzard Entertainment—the video game company behind Warcraft—and merged it with photos and scans of Kazinsky. That’s almost a cruel oversimplification considering how fantastic Orgrim looks:
