Tarin Stoneback- Dwarf OC by RachelleFryatt Tarin Stoneback- Dwarf OC by RachelleFryatt
As promised, a more developed design of this: [link]. She's a lot more dwarf like now, and her over all design is the first I've been happy with in months.

She's a female dwarf based in Tolkien's Middle Earth, although albeit quite an unconventional female dwarf. Yup, she does have a beard (look closely!), and yay for dwarven underwear XD

This is part of a larger character sheet I'll be doing- I still need to design her weapons, bags, cloak and other essential items needed when out adventuring.

Anatomy referenced used (although then completely messed up to fit dwarf proportions) [link], (thanks!)
Brush used for the pattern on the trimming of her coat: [link]
(Thank you!)

I'm having way too much fun with Middle Earth OC's, so expect more in the next few weeks ;)

Art and character are Rachelle Fryatt- DO NOT USE, REDISTRIBUTE OR ALTER IN ANYWAY.

Tarin's companion, Ivy:

Looks good!
I'd make her 4'1, not 5'1, but kudos for making a female dwarf!

Can I be disturbed by the fact that she's an inch taller than me?

According to one tumblr blogger's head-canon, female dwarves have a LOT of testosterone, and thus grow full beards; leaving the main dwarfs' genders up to debate. Pronouns don't even matter.

She may very well have a full beard, but decides to wear it in the particular way ;) She'll be getting a re-design soon, she'll never have a full beard but will have a much more substantial one.

Yeah, I know a girl who's 5 foot. I think as a dwarf she should be a few inches shorter.

Well my friend told me that in a interview with Richard Armitage, he said that Thorin is 5'4. So I guess humans in Middle Earth are around the 5'6-6'5 range. So I'm just really short T_T

What are your thoughts on how to do Dwarven proportions? I'm trying to draw a dwarven female and having a hard time grasping long the legs should be as well as arms and body and what not.

:iconrachellefryatt:

My design was heavily inspired by Wetta, who designed their dwarves with a ratio of 5 heads per body (I think?), rather than the usual 7ish for humans. The male dwarves have longer torsos and shorter legs, but I found that was to be far too masculine for my female dwarf. I still need to tweak Tarin's anatomy a lot, but she's essentially about 5 and a half heads in height, with the torso being very short and the legs being quite long. I want to make her quite a bit chunkier again though, with perhaps longer arms and shorter legs :)

Hope that helps :)

A bit thank you. I was trying to draw a Dwarf for a concept idea and wasn't sure on proportions. Primarily when it came to how long the arms and legs should be.

Just a thought, but I think the dwarve proportions are long torso and short legs. Try it out on your next design and see how it works.
