My all time favourite Duergar artwork, now found on Deviantart! I am a dummy! 
This piece alone is landing you me on your watch list, for sure.

But that's not to say your other works here aren't just as good.
Really, it's like entering an old candy store; you just want them all. I think I've fainted.

Lol, we had the same situation in our RPG group, only it was orcs abducting our healer :)
'What Teig saying about this?'
'Teig says nothing.'
half an hour later.
'Ow this hurts. Teig, can you take a look at this?'
'Teig isn't here.'
WHAHHHAAAAA!

And this is a great picture. Love the details on the duegar armor. Keep up the good work.

Heh, I remember when I was a kid and went out with my mother and my three brothers. I spent the time counting us. Just in case.

Your work is brilliant! I was hunting for a good pic of Duergar and finally after half a days searching i found this! Duergar's never really interested me more than a random encounter until i made and NPC one for my campaigne! Love this pic....

I like the duergar, i think they have the potential to be great adversaries, snaky mean and pretty rough.

fighting a Duegar underground is like fighting a harby in mid air. good luck heroes.

E-everthing looks great but if i had to choose i will be the most looking at the background.

That works for me, I kind of like the fact that your eye goes to the light source first and then to the action in the foreground next, helps you get the feeling that the other characters have missed what is going on as well.

Really cool work, but what seems wierd to me is that nobody noticed when the bard went missing.

Normally bards are the ones jiggling and singing all around. When a bard shuts up or stops doing noises the party should get an automatic perception check with a +5 or +10 bonus.

Either way, great work.

Howdy, been awhile since I checked my messages.

You familiar with The Unspoken Hall?

It's an old shield dwarf hall, but I have a setting that uses duergar and I always envisioned the speaker as a duergar with vrock wings.

No, I haven't seen this setting, how old is it?

The image of a Duegar with Vrock wings is a good one, like it.

It's pretty old, meaning there's not much lore on it in 4th edition D&D, etc. Duergar according to the Forgotten Realms wiki entry are also naturally infused with a bit of demonic blood so everything fits pretty well with canon(just nothing recent). I am pretty sure I sent you the link to Ammarindar on the Wizards of the Coast site, but here's the FR wiki entry(I am the one currently doing the unofficial stuff in NwN2).

I figured since you're like the only person I have seen that drew duergars, you might be interested in "The Speaker".
