Makes me want to take Charles Atlas by the... by hibbary Makes me want to take Charles Atlas by the... by hibbary
I lied.

I was surfing around the net, as I do, and happened across a few pictures of Gimli with a lot of tattoos. My thought process was as follows: pfftt ha ha ha what the crap oh wait I dig this!

Dem arms are orc-killin' arms, man. Kinda scary.

P.S. it has been requested that I ask any and all who want to color this to do so and then supply me with links

Oh wowweee I would have never pictured him with tattoos if not for this. It's really awesome and suits him surprisingly well. I particularly like the Boar on his shoulder - it's a really cool design.

Suh-weet! Dwarves would definitely look like this, in my mind. Sort of stumpy, grumpy, and a tad ridiculous, but at the same time built, tattooed, and adorned. Elves can't be the only ones who adorn themselves 9.9 Just awesome!

No, definitely not! I mean, dwarves are supposed to be MAD for bling, so they must like something about self-decoration. :D

You mean as in..... without a lot of body fat? Don't worry. Once he gets home to the mountains and his salted pork and ale, he'll plump up. :P

More as in like... here he has this svelte-looking swimmer's build, which to me dwarves wouldn't have! He looks like a human... with a magnificent beard. :P

And isn't it nice that we live in such a world that different people can have different conceptions of what dwarves might look like?

I'll give it a go with manga studio, might be a slightly cell shaded effect though seeing as the program does the comic shading... so no no burn tool >.<
