Female Dwarves

    I liked the dwarves from EQ, though most faces left me cold (par for the course in those days). The dwarves from Vanguard were okay, if a little square-headed. The dwarves in Rift and Dragon Age, however? Perfection.

    What do you think? Where have some good representations of female dwarves been seen?

    Also, I know it is tempting, but please try not to bring up Tolkien's dwarf-folk. His lack of discernible women in the Dwarven kingdoms is cringe-worthy. Also, I think most people would agree that despite some stellar animation in Asian MMOs, the little girls/teenagers that some try to pass off as dwarves are really creepy.

    here is what I can find, although I can't imagine that this is accurate to what is current. (was a pain to find)

    Nice find. Concept art is a good start

    Very nice! It's a plus that she doesn't have a beard and her proportions aren't radically different than the pictured male.

    This was our first attempt at concepting the dwarves and debuted in our race reveal quite some time ago. I think it's fair to say the spirit of them is still intact for the Dwarven male and female.

    Very cool, ty Istuulamae! I am actually in the process of drawing a picture of a female dwarf, this was pretty much all I could find for a reference, and was kinda looking at Norse female warriors (not sure if that is the direction you guys are going) Love the artwork, give my regards to the concept artist!

    I like the initial drawing for concept but make no mistake that "butter knife" has to go on her belt.   It certainly not big/wide enough to be a dwarf weapon!

    I really hope female dwarfes get a beard. Not like a male beard but more like a bum fluff

    All dwarves should have a beard and Mohawk option, especially the women.

    While I plan on playing a dwarf cleric, I love this dwarf rogue concept art

    I absolutely love the Coldark origin and concept art that I've seen so far. I play male dwarves so I don't have as much of a stake in this, but I have several friends who play females and they actually prefer no beards if given the option.
