Daily Deviation

Given 2012-08-21
:iconmr-wang:
This certainly has a lot of life in it... Each Dwarf might have similar features, big noses and beards and whatnot, but each has a little expressive look that gives them personality and a degree individuality, at least the ones in better detail than the ones further that're part of the background. The dwarf with the helmet trying to catch the mug for some reason makes me laugh the most.

You've got some good shading work here, too... And I'm really liking the general brown, coloring in the whole paper... It has an old-timey feel to it, if I say so myself. I don't normally look at random non-fanart works around here, but seeing a thumbnail with this image made me smile a bit.

Overall, an overview of what I think: Dwarf pictures have been done before, we've all seen some here or there, but yours is certainly fun and expressive to where I don't think many people would care about that. It's got nice detail, but not too much to take away focus from the main characters, and the graduation of more to less detailed was done nicely. There's lots of life, but it's not too busy to be distracting...

Now, I'm not an art connoisseur, I'm just a random member of DeviantArt who can't draw to save his own life, but I hope this feedback can serve its purpose. I will admit though, that perhaps my amateur status makes me wowed by works that're far beyond my abilities. But, just as an average internet user, a demographic I think I represent somewhat, I think we'll be smiling along with you when we see this image all the same.
What do you think?

Dwarves. They'll make a mess, but they'll clean it all up afterwards.
Definitely the best guest you'll ever have.

Actually--though I have played gryphons like that for decades in D&D--it was in a Yahoo RPG group. Sigh, no longer around, and I think I did some darn good writing in it! Long story, long campagne, good friends. We got to really develop characters and have fun with them. My sly, often drunken gryphons being a major part of the action. The moderator, and his characters, were always trying to rein them in. Had I your level of artistic vision I should have illustrated the entire story! Failing that, I keep it in fond memory.

I bet their singing is like a cement mixer full of rocks. Years ago, I was in an RPG in which I played a group of gryphon mercinaries--and one scene was a lot like this. Their was a "No Gryphons Allowed" sign, clawed to shreds, and besides eating everything and drinking the place dry, the gryphons had a nice game of 'dwarf tossing'. With a real dwarf! Probably the owner of the place. Good times.

I can only think about dwarf fortress:D the feeling is just right. I recommend you read "the tale of boatmurdered", you can read it here: [link] it is a "let's play" saga of a certain dwarf fortress, an epic tale of elephants and dwarves.

"We're not stereotypes!" says one dwarf.
"Yes we are"Says another.
"How come? "says the first dwarf.
"We Has Beards and we are drinking a lot...Drunk you might say"his friend explains.
"Thats the stereotype? How do we change that?"
"We just dont drink and stay sober...Shave our beards even!"
(a moments pause.)
"WHAT!!! No way!!! Quick, Another 4 Ales for me and another 4 for my friend here".
