Dwarven Last Stand by AdrianBorgnine Dwarven Last Stand by AdrianBorgnine
A dwarf Hammerer, one of the most stubborn ones of their kind - and his last gasps before he would be slain just as the rest of his brethren. But before that, he is sure to crack some skulls. He will never sell his skin easily.
Warhammer Fantasy Battle. Can be something else if you want, though.

Another derailment from the Bretonnian path. I wanted to do some dwarven piece, mainly because they are all ornate and inricate. This proved to be my biggest mistake...
All those celtic knots was a horrendous pain in the neck to draw, especially when one had to keep up with the perspective.
But putting that aside, it was nice to draw something architectural. Only geometry - mathematical, relaxing, predictable and easy to do. Sure a nice thing to do after redrawing a human face tousand times before achieving an acceptable level.
This piece was also a first experiment with a normal drawing ink, optionally mixed with water. Be sure to tell me if you like it or not.

Done with Sakura 0.05 and 0.1 pens, Staedler 0.2 and 0.5 pens and Koh-I-Noor drawing ink.

"Download" for higer (2300 x 3252) resolution.

The optional lineart is within my scraps.

Oh yeah...that background is tremendous. I know it must have been a pain, but the payoff is great. A wonderful picture that just emanates epic dwarf-ism! Did you have a reference for that architecture or did it just come from your head?

Thanks ;) I made up most of the architecture, only the celtic patterns are referenced.
