A very Happy Thanksgiving to one & all, and to those that do not celebrate, a very Happy Thursday!
For any beardies here (Forlath, Prof & Ez…cetra), some festive holiday adornment-
Husband banned from Target.
After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Target. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women – she loves to browse.
Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from our local…[Read more]
I think the guy used his time quite creatively, if I was his wife I’d be proud of him, well, of all but #3.
“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating” – Simon Pegg
Just bought tickets for tonight\’s show, should be fun. Will report back . . .
It was hilarious, Improv troupe meets any D&D campaign ever. Three of the cast played the role of the party characters, one guy played the role of DM and narrator, the other three cast members played any NPCs/monsters the party met.
The player characters rolled D20 for actions in encounters. The audience shouted out ideas for monsters, traps,…[Read more]
I’m kicking around an idea for a dwarven webcomic, here’s my first attempt at one of the main characters . . .
On a serious note, I like it…
On a smartarse note, is his name Dribbles the Leaky Dwarf?
Huh? Wait, are you implying I overdid the shadow on the stairs effect? Helpful critique. Thanks.
Looks good, Being hyper critical, his body shape isn’t right (unless he is very portly) his proportions are wrong, it looks like a squished human. Saying this I can’t draw, at all, so wada I know.
Hmmm, that one is a bit more challenging, I want to create wide as they are tall, barrel chested, cartoon, fantasy dwarves, not just miniature humans, but full disclosure, in the original sketch he was more in proportion and I did ‘squish him’. It must show . . . Okay, back to the *cough* drawing board. Thanks
Technically speaking, dwarves would not have the same proportions as a standard human, if so they’d simply be a midget, but since this is fantasy, anything goes.
Traditionally dwarves have been portrayed as being short, stocky, strong and disagreeable.
Perhaps go for something totally different?
Hey, are there any dwarven superheroes?
Go for something totally different??? Bite your tongue! I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to dwarves. You want different, I recommend you go dally with the freaking gnomes and fairies!
Purist schmurist! and, no, I will not bite my tongue!
Be daring! Think of it as evolution! High tech dwarves in space searching for their origins! :p
Sounds like a great idea, I look forwarding to reading it. Let me know when you publish . . .
In the meantime, if you’re looking for dwarves in space, this one’s pretty good, shame they didn’t keep it up:
Ok, That also explains the sword then, Glad I didn’t mention it.
Ive heard of a broad sword, but that was more a shovel sword.
Now there is an idea, house dwarves for all the low level cleaning tasks.
Did not know of this comic, I’m not very comicworldly, it looks fun!
Broad sword? Is that a female sword or a sword used by females?
Oh the sword was absolutely intentional. A bit of artistic license . . .
@Justine, I think you mean battle axe . .
The original sketch . . .
Secondly, It’s done on paper? Like it muchly!
Id stick with the original sketch, much better then the squished version.
I have to agree with Professor, I like the proportions better in the original.
