The Runesmith by RedRo The Runesmith by RedRo
This Dwarf was for a different RPG company, this Dwarf is a magic user. He was a lot of fun, but he took me forever to draw. There was just so much detail and all the little pouches, guns and puzzles on his armor and weapons. But I also wanted him to look a little ruff and worn around the edges, like he's always on the go, traveling somewhere. So that's why his legs are wrapped and his cloak tattered, but don't mess with this guy! He draws his power from the runes tattooed on his body and he also draws his power from the earth it's self. He's a powerful Eco-Wizard

The company I did this for really wanted there to be puzzles and mazes to his design.

I just found the photoshoped colored version PoeticLetteOfDeath did of this guy!
:blowkiss: So awesome!! Did you have any creative input to this piece?

Nope, just the line-art.
The rest was completely PoeticLetteOfDeath. ^_^

I like the drama of graphite and I think he's just brilliant colored or not :hug: I like to imagine the Runesmith as the half brother of Tanis from the Dragonlance books. (It would be pretty impossible though I know because he is a Dwarf and Tanis is Half-Elf :p )

How come you don't have any prints for sale here? :crying:Christmas is around the corner and art is the gift that keeps on giving....

cloven-hoof Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009
And I should clarify - your drawing is waaaaaaaaay cooler than any represetnation or imagining of Tanis I ever encountered!
:winner:
I hope you don't find the comparison insulting :/

Wow, this is epic. And useful... I was just designing a villain for a D&D game I run and crafted a dwarf wizard who wields a war axe in addition to his magecraft. Any objection to me showing my PCs this guy when it comes time to make his grand entrance?

WOW. The detail....is....stunning...me....There is sooo much of it. Nice Nice work.
The only thing that somewhat bugs me and I hope you dont take offense to it, is the gun and his feet.
the feets just look a little too small to me and to me the gun just doesnt fit.
Other than those two things, I think this drawing is Freakin Awesome!!!!

pretty cool, and weird idea or a dwarf magic user, it sounds kind of interesting, hope you dont get several minuses on your magic throws... do they, like, get the save DC higher for being drawrf?

anyways about the pic, its Really really cool *goes and browses the rest of your deviations in seach of more*
