Exceptional design

I really like how you have this unified style for her.  This really seems to reflect the general feel that DnD clerics should have.  Beyond that though the quilted armor is unusual, but you make it look great.  Then you embellish it with the bodice work and pair it with a similarly geometric warhammer.  Bravo!

I play DnD sessions as player and DMG. And in that second role i often cannot help but love to show players portraits of their friends and enemies. I looked for original dwarf, halfing and gnome woman portraits.
And i found this Gem.
This is one of the best works in that style. Dear wood-illustration you have my sincere compliments
It's really great!

It's rare to see a female dwarf hero and a dwarf cleric as well! This is an excellent concept for one! :nod:

Awesome and lovely proportions.
There won't be ever enough pictures of female dwarves! ;)

This is without a doubt one of the best dwarven pictures I've ever came across. Not only it looks more correctly proportioned than many other dwarves out there (many of which ranges from the weird to the comical), but the level of detail and care put into the decoration is exactly what I expect out of dwarven manufacture. The fact that the armor looks more practical than fanservice is another great plus and the fact that it's leather/quilted instead of metal is the cherry on top.
I just love it.

Exceptional work on the design and colours... for a moment makes you think of elven craft (her armour) but naw - just a more feminine, very tasteful design.

A perfect 10. Thanks for painting a dwarven female, I absolitely adore her.

a very pretty dwarven lass, and she is even equipped for actual adventuring :)
I was hitting the favorite button while the page was still loading :judge:

Submitted to Dwarven Halls for inclusion, this is awesome work. I love her calm demeanor, the detail on her hauberk and hammer. She looks like a Dwarven cleric:)

I really love this! Not only a female dwarf, but one in an original and interesting outfit--no generic technicolor, no Warhammer half-ton shoulderguards, no large amounts of visible cleavage above poorly-designed armor. (Naw, I've got nothing against unrealistic fantasy pinups here and there, but I just don't see dwarven women being that irrational somehow.)

My one and only crit about this piece? I wish it were in even higher resolution so I could admire more detail in closeup. And, y'know, I don't say that often.

Thank you so much, both for making this picture and for posting it!

I don't mind but you are crediting the wrong artist on your site, please make sure to credit me
ShoelaceMonster Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
Oh, crap. I don't know how that happened, I even got the title wrong. I must have mistaken this work for someone else's. Thanks for letting me know.

Nice job on the overcoat/armor.

So lovely. Like she's wearing quilted leather.
