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: For Papercuts this year, I am just going to use things created since last Papercuts. Bessie for the model and Onager Longhauler for the kitbash. I was going to build 10 Downing St for a Bessie backdrop, but that ain't happening

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

Vermin King: My Doctor Who stuff is all gone... and couldn't get onto the company database for 4 1/2 hours today. Life has got to get better

Vermin King: It's been such a nightmare, I haven't been to OBS or your site yet. I just know they are gone

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: Oo, oo! I just saw the Olli Bizer models loading!

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted

cowboyleland: It looks like you guys are busy, but I would like to point out that the "Ghoul Design Tutorial." which would start to answer bobsomething 's question from Aug 10, is MIA (again)
