Warrior Dwarf Deux by boblea Warrior Dwarf Deux by boblea
A version of the book cover illustration I did for The Dwarves by Markus Heitz. I got these the wrong way round. This should have been the first one and the Warrior Dwarf should have been deux. :shrug:

Please respect my copyright, thanks.

AH, I just stumbled upon these images by chance
I adore the Dwarves series, and the cover art fascinates me and my friends because of the gorgeous realism and emotion in each one. It's awesome to see them in digital form :D

I still have the first 3 books in my bedroom; sadly the 4th one I had to read on a Ebook but the picture still looked awesome for that one.

Are they doing another cover set for it/republication? :3 :D
Reply
:iconboblea:
boblea Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2010
No, there are three different books in the series.

The first one is "Dwarves" the second one is "War of the Dwarves" and the third one is "Revenge of the Dwarves" That's the one I'm working on now so it's not published yet.

The cover for the second book, War of the Dwarves, is this one [link] but I've added a background for this version and changed the headband of his helmet. :)

Aw, sorry D: I don't mean to squeal so loudly. I'm just happy that there are books for dwarves and they're well written, though I will admit, the cover art for the first one made me pick up the book. >_> I like good art for the cover. :)

Good plan. Especially as he might be a Worrier Dwarf, not a Warrior Dwarf. If he sees you in his place he'll just worry and worry and you'll never hear the last of it.

If you go round cheering people up all the time you might consider getting a super hero name for yourself like Super Cheer Up Girl or Cheerupaloopa Girl or some such :bucktooth:
