The representation of Dwarves as evil changed dramatically with The Hobbit. Here the Dwarves became occasionally comedic and bumbling, but largely seen as honourable, serious-minded, but still portraying some negative characteristics such as being gold-hungry, overly proud and occasionally officious. I think the Elves are portrayed as more refined. They are serious about traditions and hierarchy. They seem more interested about preservation of their culture and folklore rather than simply gold and power. They are not bumbling comic relief rather hold a dignified stature in the Tolkein universe .
