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!

That awkward moment when I'm shorter than a dwarf..

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

Hehe, that's apparently what people say about me :P So it makes sense, as she is based on me :P

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.

I love this! Especially the stature design in the first image.

Thanks very much :) This is a pretty old piece now, so I plan to re-design her very soon, with some adjustments to her anatomy :)
