This is a cover image for an as of yet not announced series of books Goodman Games plan to begin releasing later this year. Joseph Goodman was kind enough to let me get the images up on my page now, so a huge thanks to him.
Aye, that be a dwaarf right enough, he be stern, and fierce and ready to turn some skeletal undead arse I can't help it, any dwarven cleric will forever remind me of Durkon. This is spectacularly amazing however, and I agree, dwarves will never be classically good looking, so if you exaggerate the asymmetry and make them hairy and weathered, you have a dwarf! Your ability to detail and paint armor awes me in the classical sense.
Thanks again, I like dwarves, I actually think this guy could have done a bit more roughness to his features, bigger nose ( slightly) and tougher skin, but make be he has had a soft life until now. His chance to get tough and do the job.
Eh? He's not tough already? 0_o Wow, then that's one weathered looking non tough dwarf. Maybe he was a farmer or a sailor up until now or something, anything to explain him looking like he could chew nails and not be tough enough You could always save the ideas for the next dwarf picture you paint. Practice painting that essence of dwarf
