View Full Version : Races of Middle-Earth - character - tmt

Count me in :)

This is basically NOT a dwarf. Not anymore. Once the dwarwes ruled Moria, and then the forces of darkness abandoned the whole mining community. Lots of them escaped, lots of them were killed, and the rest were joined the darkness deep below the mountain.

The survival in the deep and the presence of dark magic altered them completely. Their fur was changed to white, their eyes went completely black, their arms stretched, and their fingernails accreted into claws (and yes, they have 3 fingers on each hands and legs).

Clothes will come, and some history aswell :)

tommy lee: thx a lot... Hey man, your Donald Duck is sick! :) I like it very much! :D

A little update, head profile...

Now I'm working on to find a good pose, and some details in clothing, weapons and armor, it'll arrive soon...

Pretty soon update (armor and weapon)

I'm not so pleased with this one, because it's movement and anatomy is a piece of sh*t, but the helm fits well :))

Something looks really funky on his left arm (the arm holding the hammer). Try turning the wrist around the other way (palm facing inward) and shorten up the bicept area.

Other than that ... looks nice! I'm waiting for colors. :D

Colouring is going to look nice on this tmt. Give em up.:beer:

Wow, finally some posts in my thread! :) thx dudez...

Yeah, I see what you're pointing at, Kirt, but it is the lesser problem. I think the figure's head is somewhat twisted, I'll slide it to the right a bit, maybe this will change the left arm's look too. (maybe :P). And then the coloring... Oooh, when will I have some free time :)

I started to color the image. The outfit will be a dark one, details soon :))

I really like the start of the colouring tmt. Good choice in tones. Keep it coming man!

Finally I had a couple of hours to finish the entry... We had a deadline exactly at the same time in our job, so it was very hard :))

Now this is the final, as I know it isn't the best...

Thx! I planned to draw some background, like in Two Towers, where Gandalf battles the Balrog, but I didn't have time. Maybe later :)
