Guys the Dwemer you meet in Morrowind is the last "Known" Dwemer alive, not the last alive and I think Kagrenac didn't f*ck up, I think he was able to teleport the Dwemer or something when he hit the heart

Kagrenac was to be built by Keening, Sunder, and Wraithguard.

Isn't Kagrenac the one dwemer guy in Morrowind who created Keening and that one hammer and gauntlet to get power from the Heart of Lorkhan

Very nice. Good job.
P.S.: Earlier in comments it was said that you meet one Dwarf in Morrowind, but I believe you can say more: the last living Dwarf in Corprussarium, a friendly talking Dwarf ghost from Tribunal and a whole bunch of bad ghosts (but those can be ignored as a characters).

Ah Kagrenac, you priest/inventor who sent me on an hours long quest collecting all your tools. Also am I the only who gets annoyed that kneeing is in Skyrim and not Wraithgaurd. Let me tell how my experience went without Wraithgaurd "Oh cool a dwemer looking short sword, wow look at all these enchantments, i'm going to use this right away!" I become mortally wounded and die.

He looks like ancient Babylonians (not that there is any non-ancient ones), which isvery close to the image I had in mind on Dwemer: Cruel, majestic and old.

This is a brilliant picture. I think you aced the Dwemer appearance. Honestly I think of all the Elder Scrolls art I've seen your elves stand head and shoulders above all others, you just seem to get the idea you know? I'm often seeing these boring, plain and conventionally pretty elves, Elder Scrolls Elves! It's fine that there are elves that are human-pretty and it's great that people enjoy that but that's not what they are in The Elder Scrolls universe ;( They're alien and exotic and mystic and badass! *sigh*

Rant over, favourited.

Keep up the kickass work!

I'm going by the concept art of the Dwemer here. Also, they're elves, so I assume they would bear some resemblance to their fellow mer.
