Peter’s stuck in a strange land. Do you spot anything interesting in the distance? Perhaps the lil’ guy can go exploring. Oh, he’s sat down. He’ll be there for a while.
Find out what’s going on with Al, next Saturday!
Be sure you’re read up on the story, check out the digital book collection at our Sellfy store.
Hey everyone, I did a new piece of one of the Brundun, the dwarves of the Black Dunes. I really liked these guys, and will probably do something with them in the future. You can view a larger version of the image on my tumblr. The Brundun appeared in the Goblin Wars comic, that you can read right here.
It’s kind of a challenge, drawing a dwarf. His proportions are much different than a regular person. I have to use certain “tricks” to emphasize his lovable stature and appearance. It’s not enough just to make him shorter than Al; his hands and head tend to be larger, also I usually make his legs very short and almost non-existent. Giving him substantial legs of any length tends to make him look too big. But here, today, is a sketch with those luscious gams, in full glory:
Look, he’s got knees! Even in this pic, you can see he seems taller. It’s a challenge, to say the least. So I usually exaggerate by making them legs as short as possible. Giving him a tunic/chainmail skirt helps as well.
This is also why Peter tends to look more “cartoony” than the other characters. That also helps to make him a funny, funny guy.
Well, that’s all for the art lesson today.
Here is a quick sketch of Peter in his new travel duds. I liked it so much I decided to ink it. I’ll probably add some color to it eventually.

Nothing new from my moleskine today… but take a gander at a snippet of next week’s issue. Ah I love an angry dwarf in the morning!
