Son of Grungni... by Gothic-Archangel Son of Grungni... by Gothic-Archangel
This one was made as a christmass present for my friend.
A dwarf warrior from Warhammer.
O.k, here comes the part when i start yaping about how i wnated it co look, and why it doesn't look that way.
Answer? I'm just not good enough yet. Finito.

Anyway, the title is a sort of link to the dwarfs background history.
Grungni was one of the ancestor gods of the dwarfs... the patron of mining and smithing. The most important God in the dwarven pantheon.
Though, in most cases, Dwarf warriors praise Grimnir, the Dwarf God of War, Grungni is said to be the first dwarf ever, so to honor him, all the dwarfs name themselves Sons and daughters of Grungni.

The pics tho made for a diferent reason, is dedicated to my wife :)
I hope you like it Hun :)

Pretty good. I like the muscles and skin especially =) The metal looks nice too. The whole picture would look even better with some more deep shadows. The thing I don't like is the grass. That grass brush makes horrible grass IMO, and makes the picture look unprofessional. Just a little critique.
It's nice to see some dwarf artwork ^^

there'll be more dwarfs comming soon :)
And i know the gras sucks.. but i was making it at 5 a.m. and didn't have the strenght to finish it in a better fashion ^^""
And the shadowing depth is one of my biggest problems.... i'll try to improve :)

Oh, more dwarfs? Nice ^^
Ah, ok. Well I can see why then. There's another thing that bothers me. He looks unbalanced. He's leaning too much backwards, I think he'd fall over if he really stood that way.
Yeah, training brings improvement. =)

Well yeah I know but if he had a heavy axe on his back and stood like that he would have to lean forward to not fall over =)

and who said that he ain't starting to fall over right now? :XD:
Besides.. this was supose4d to be a heroic image.. what kind of hero bends down under the weight of his own weapon? ( i'm not talking about heroes carrying the burden of a deamon possesed weapon :XD: )

Well of course he doesn't have to bend down, but he looks like he's leaning backwards.

Ah, it looks great... It is a pity the Squats were made extint thanks to some guys in powerarmour... :P

Ah, they might come back as Demiurg as Tau allies...

But, yes, in fantasy, they pwn...

Well.. i didn't like the squats... they were so.. shallow. The fantasy dwarfs have much more character :)
To me.. dwarfs in the 40k universe are the space wolfs... they are tough, great warriors, have runepriests, like to fight and dring, and have a great sense of honor. Just like fantasy dwarfs (not to mention the hair and beards :XD: )
