I love this picture.  I hear this song when I see dwarf pictures now.

That song is AWESOME.

Brothers of the mine rejoice!
Swing, swing, swing with me
Raise your pick and raise your voice!
Sing, sing, sing with me
Down and down into the deep
Who knows what we'll find beneath?
Diamonds, rubies, gold and more
Hidden in the mountain store

Born underground, suckled from a teat of stone
Raised in the dark, the safety of our mountain home
Skin made of iron, steel in our bones
To dig and dig makes us free
Come on brothers sing with me!

Chorus
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, digging a hole

The sunlight will not reach this low
Deep, deep in the mine
Never seen the blue moon glow
Dwarves won't fly so high
Fill a glass and down some mead!
Stuff your bellies at the feast!
Stumble home and fall asleep
Dreaming in our mountain keep

Born underground, grown inside a rocky womb
The earth is our cradle; the mountain shall become our tomb
Face us on the battlefield; you will meet your doom
We do not fear what lies beneath
We can never dig too deep

What is the name of the dwarf that appears in this picture? Is there any other picture of her? I found it beautiful!

I'm afraid I didn't give a name to her -or any other of these dwarves- as I only have draw them once, as inhabitants of that dwarf fortress. :3

Compared to a lot of other drawings on thissite, that's still a very competant background. With texture and items at multiple distances and everything....

Good detailing..

What sort of weapons would the Drawfen Ladies carry for self-defense??
Reply
:iconshabazik:
Shabazik Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist
Well: depend of the dwarven culture. In the cultures where the dwarven women aren't warriors, would be mostly knives, or some working tool -as a mining pick or an wood axe- but these are casual weapons rather than self-defense weapons

boy! Still to young to grow a beard! -contrary to popular belief, that dwarves born with beards, like spartans, or Chuck Norris-

what do dwarves get first?... beard or pubic hair?

pubic hair. It's normal that, but then, they grow quickly beards!

are they humans who became short... or more of a subspecies... or a seperate race all together (no/limited succes at crossbreeding)?

Here are the relations of dwarves, humans -and the other peoples- in my world: [link]

eso del señor de los anillos era de la película, y he leído que puede ser tomado como que le están agarrando el pelo a la chica de Rohan diciendo eso de las enanas, pues Tolkien jamás siquiera sugirió enanas barbadas -no sugirió enanas de ninguna forma, eso si! XD-

Really nice Dwarven family, but I got a little confused for a second on how she was holding a bucket and an axe like that.
:P Then I undestood I was overseeing the fact you can hold a bucket like that with one hand too.

Bueeeno, la verdad que yo también quedé un poco confundido.... por que el hacha fue un error -moví el lapiz tirando unas lineas que no quería- por lo que había que tapar el error de una manera otra. XD

I really love the way you draw Dwarves :) Such an interesting family.
Also, it rather reminds me of some D&D characters of mine O.o You're drawings always offer rather good references, if you don't mind ^^;

As always, interesting common folk! I love how the fortification in the background is a "small dwarven fortress"! This is also how I picture most dwarves living; on the surface, up in the mountains or highland valleys, in fortified homes. Dwarven communities stick together for mutual protection and mutual community building projects!

I personally don't see the dwarves as tooo deep peoples, but in more contact with the surface rather than, let's say, my drows or goblins: More like surface people who happen to live underground, rather than a underground specie. :3

However, they did have come underground culturally... at least, many of the dwarven races!

For much of D&D, dwarves were fairly exclusively underground folk as a people. To the point that dwarves inexperienced with the outside had a common fear of falling into the sky! Dwarves became far more inclined to dwell on the surface in the current edition, so as to make them easier to roleplay, and so dwarven adventures could take place on the surface or anywhere without undue explanation.

It seems that many creators came up with the same idea of surface dwarves independantly.

Well, in my world, as no specie began as "underground", they slowly became underground dwellers, but it was a slow historic process.

However, eventually some dwarven nations have become exclusively underground, meanwhile others who live in the underground and surface, prefeer the underground. :3

My dwarves are going deeper and deeper, then!

sort of mad mages-savants, rumored in older works to be maybe 'crossed' with humans and more.
