Sunday Sketch #17 – Crunt

This is Crunt (derived from Crotchety Runt and only coincidentally sounds like a rude word).
He’s like Grumpy (from the Seven Dwarves) but without the charm. This is the dwarf that other dwarves find too offensive to be around. Crunt is not evil (Lawful Good actually), he’s just unpleasant, rude and smelly (he’s afraid of water). It often annoys me in computer RPGs how you are not allowed to role-play a rude character without it being considered evil. Someone can be ill-mannered yet still carry a good heart.

Crunt is the epitome of low Charisma. Now many, many people get low charisma confused with low Comliness – but comliness is how physically attractive/unattractive you are whereas Charisma is about how attractive your personality is. Look out for an example of low Comliness next week when I’ll be doing the concept art for Crunt’s sidekick Fugly.

Clodin fells a Giant

Clodin fells a Giant via his favoured technique: Kneecap, kneecap, back of the head. How else could a Dwarf take down something so big?
This is the second piece of Epic Fail character art for the Wagon Webcomic Battle cardgame.

Sunday Sketch #13 – My Little Pony Clodin

My Little Pony Clodin Brony MLP FiM Fanart
This Sunday Sketch is of Clodin as a My Little Pony. Clodin is a Dwarf so I decided to make him a shetland pony – and a shaggy one at that so I could get his beard in without it looking too weird. He actually turned out pretty cute. His Cutie Mark is a rather obvious one, it’s a clod (or sod) or earth.

I notice that the male ponys (bronys) where there show up in the cartoon (pretty rarely) are less stylistically rigid than the females.

Pg 51: Elven Theory on Dwarves

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle and Amuletts gather evidence that Dwarves are gay.

Creator’s Commentary: Too risqué?

When Kevin first created this Dwarven Fighter I suggested the name Clod son of Sod, both referring to the earth, which then became Clodding son of Sodding and finally Clodin son of Sodin. True story.

I’d appreciate your feedback on whether this page is easy to read or if I need to edit the text and speachbubbles.

Pg 48: Shocking Language

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts is taken aback by Yoru’s monstrous heritage and says things to offend both him and Tinuvielle.

Creator’s Commentary: Now the party are all back together again I feel like splitting them up again; there are far too many characters on this page!

I liked showing the reactions of the people in the Bar to the Heroes conversation. Although they take demons and such in their stride most people are shit scared of ’em. Yes, even little ones.

The Duergar joke is one only D&D folk will understand. Although I try to make the humour as accesible as possible I think it’s fair to slip a niche joke in now and then if it’s funny enough. A Duergar is basically a evil, dark-skinned type of Dwarf that lives underground and is rarely seen.
