This old Dwarf is an 'crack-shot' archer, a veteran of many battles. He's taking a moment to rest or think back on something from his past... or maybe his's regretting something he did or didnt do? Yes, that is a huge bow and yes, you'd have to be increadibly strong to use it. But he's a Dwarf, and Dwarves are very strong so no prob. This is not a subtle, elegant bow an arrows, these are mean armor piercing bolts he's carrying, they'll go threw just about anything. Death at a distance. But if the enemy does gets to close, he can also use his bow as a weopon.

You are a little boitch, ig you didnt notice, people make up there own worlds and DWARVES CAN HAVE BOWS IN OTHER WORLDS THEN JJR TOLKIEN AND D&D queers. HAHAHA?

hehe, looks more like a walking ballista than like an archer.

He's got such a deep expression. I feel like he's asking his gods or something to forgive him for the casualties he'll do/has done on the battlefield.

The little curly thin that the string attaches to would break long before that bow bent.

It's a great pic, though most dwarfs that I've encountered would rather use a cross bow. There is only one real problem with the drawing, his arrows are either more than half the length of himself stacked in a very strange way.

Your right, that bow wouldn't work. 'Course, bows really couldn't have axes on each end..oh and dwarves don't exsist. You should really fix all those over sights and just have the arrows laying across an empty picture...or, wait, no.

Great picture, like all of your art. I am much mucho impressed.

I love the expression on his face... either he just took someone out, or he's about to.

"No no no, that's wrong. You did NOT say that to me. Because, hypothetically speaking, if you HAD, you'd be lying on the ground in a pool of your own blood, and there'd be one less arrow in my quivver. Get it?"

"Um..." *gulp*
...*runs*

You know, this is the first time that I've seen a dwarf with a bow, and I have to tell you that I like it, and I don't know why.

Not bad. But the mail should extend over his thighs, and it shouldn’t be anywhere near that tight on his arms. As it is he’s not going to be able to move very well at all. The bow however is totally unrealistic. The extra leangth past were the string ends nees to go. If you’re thinking that those things are supposed to look like blades, you’re high. No archer would ever use there bow as a melee weapon. He would certainly have a back up weapon. Any extra leangth past the string is wasted space and extra weight. And when you’re a soldier on the march space and weight are key.
