I made this image while working on a video game project in January 2005! I actually can’t believe it’s that old and of a good enough quality that I’m not sneering at it with disgust… like I do at most of my older drawings.
Dwarves are creatures from the deep underground and their eyesight is extremely well developed. However, their eyes are very sensitive to sunlight causing extremely painful headaches and even blindness after prolonged exposure without proper protection. Yes indeed this dwarf is sporting a pair of wrap-around Oakley shades!
