Dwarves 5

The last batch of preparatory dwarf drawings. I'm pretty sure I have a handle on how I generally want them to look, which was the whole goal of the week. Great! Next week is probably Hobbits, and goblins the following week. Or maybe wizards, because Gandalf comes in earlier than the goblins.

I think that top one is close to what Thorin will look like. Grim, kingly, authoritative.

Dwarf fashion is furs, heavy knits, canvas, rough leather, mail, and miscellaneous armors. Blues, browns, oranges and greys, I'm betting.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Hahaha, I love these guys, they are my favorite bunch! They have a lot of personality. Thorin does have an unexpected amount of kingliness and dwarvliness together. Also, I want to see that Unibrowiest Dwarf in a fight. He looks like a good scrapper. (and keeps his gloves in excellent condition)

  2. Awesome. Loved every post this week! Makin' me want to do my own take on these guys.

  3. Fantastic stuff. I can't wait to see your Smaug

  4. These guys have a character about them that I've not seen in other depictions of them. Swell!

    Unibrows are now mandatory on all dwarves everywhere.

  5. the dwarves are awesome. would make great cards or prints...i'd buy some.

  6. Thorin looks great man. i definitely agree with all of your final decisions
