Once you've had dwarf... by hibbary Once you've had dwarf... by hibbary
A silly continuation of:

Dwarves seem to have earned a reputation for being brutish and rough which I hotly contest. Yes, they're fierce warriors and like to bash and hack the shit out of enemies, but they're also metal smiths and let me tell you, metal smithing is the FIDDLIEST FUCKING THING ON THE PLANET. Until you've spent hours precariously balancing a ring on a firebrick, poking a tiny prong setting into place, applying flux and a microscopic piece of solder, and then fighting to keep it all exactly as you placed it until the solder melts, you cannot understand what otherworldly patience and finesse dwarves must possess. Even blacksmithing requires a lot of minute and careful maneuverings as well as some serious bashing power. Stout stature might suggest otherwise, but immense strength is very useful for delicate work because your body doesn't get tired so easily and slip up. Smithing also requires an unusual attention to detail because one tiny little setback might mean a hundred hours of cleanup.

That is why, whether dwarves are cutting gems, settings stones, making knives, or massaging elves, they are probably the most gentle, careful, detail-sensitive people in Middle Earth.

Here are some of the other Legolas and Gimli comics:

And here I am, reading comic about dwarves' massage instead of learning theory of our massage.

Still I love it :heart: It makes me laugh really hard whenever I see it XD

Yeah, way back in the day that's just what I wanted to do. Then 3D and flash crap began to take the place of traditional animation and I just wasn't interested anymore. : /
