So I'm still working on the Jungle Fighters, but I wanted to put that project on hold for a little bit to try something new. A couple of my friends have recently completed painting a couple Warhammer Fantasy Armies and they have started playing. I want to get in on the action, but my own dwarf army is largely unpainted. Anyway, last weekend I put together some of Sanity Studios Dwarves and put them on my own bases. From printing to fully assembled, it only took me a couple hours. Here is the result:
I think it looks pretty good, so I've decided to try fielding a paper Dwarf army to play with my friends. To that end, I've started making my own dwarf minis. Here is the first one. I've tried a couple things differently here. Instead of my usual shading method I used an Overlay and applied dodge and burn. I also drew in a couple pupils, which is stylistically different from what I normally do for minis. I intend on making a regiment of two-handed weapon wielders, if it turns out well, I'll move on to creating ranged units and artillery. Feedback?

Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll try adjusting the legs when I get home tonight. As for the pose, I agree it is static but I am hoping to do a few different poses with great weapons; so this will just be one of several. Hopefully they will look good in a regiment. Longer legs will definitely make it easier to make more dynamic stances =P

Thank you for your feedback oldschooldm and pavaro. I am hoping to have several positions weapons etc.
The previously posted Dwarves were done 100% digitally. This is from an old pencil drawing that I colored digitally. For this Dwarf I tried a different shading/highlighting technique. I personally like this one more than my dodge and burn experiment. It is also much easier to draw straight lines with a pencil compared to a tablet.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

wyvern: Nah, just rewatched the 1931 Universal "Dracula" movies (the Lugosi one and the Spanish version)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
