    ^I really like this, except for that odd looking covering on the right which I assume is supposed to be some kind of umbrella to keep the sunlight off or a bag holding ones personal items.

    Right now I am in a fantasy frame of mind reading a couple of old Forgotten Realms novels, a new Pathfinder novel will be out, and the last of the Thomas Covenat books will be out soon. As a result when I go look this stuff up I'm sitting there googling every fantasy combination I can think of. That last post was various forms of "Fantasy castle" and when you do things like that google provides other example phrases and I follow those too. I might try a couple of dozen phrases before making a post. I don't dig too deeply but if I see an artist's name right off and a title I'll try to post it. Some of them are untitled wallpapers. Then things like that Blue Portal crop up in all the pages and I throw that in too.

    A lot of the pics I see come from Deviant Art though I don't directly search there. Sometimes a search with the added word "tumblr" puts up results that don't come up otherwise.

    Soem stuff comes from looking through the various Spectrum Art books I have. There are currently 19. I think I am missing 3 in the whole series. Of course I see loads of book covers and will look up and artit's work. I have a daily stop at spacebattles which has a picture thread. I take what I like from there too to post here.

    Ok, help me out here. Take a look at this fellow:

    [​IMG]

    See how he has holographic looking runes manifesting on his hands? I want more of literally that. But for th elife of me I must be missing the right word in a google search. Mage spell casting? Mage magic runes? Wizard casting? All kinds of stuff like that and that's about all I get.

    Somewhat less stirring, but a second excellent composition.

    I found these on a blog where someone was making their own rog setting. They are unlabeled. I have no idea who the artist(s) is/are or their titles.

    Saw this:

    And it reminded me of a Michael Kormack piece for the cover of D&D Dungeonscape:

    That is a cover for a series collection written by Gene Wolfe starting with Shadow Of The Torturer. Whilst looking for the image I found another written by the author with this image:

    [​IMG]

    The title is Lake Of The Long Sun, part of a 4 book series. I only briefly glanced at a summary and it looks like a population living inside a generation starship(like Rama) but they don't relize it's a starship and they believe in gods and such. The long sun would be a fusion source that runs the length of the ship. It has certainly caught my interest and I shall now seek it.

    Love the levitating wizard.

    I hate the dragon's face and horns, but otherwise a cool battle pic.

    By Jeff Easley from Tome Of Treasures.

    [​IMG]

    I looked at that and though it resembled the iconic intro character from the original D&D Red Box.

    [​IMG]

    That's him. A little digging revealed something I did not know after all these years. This fellow actually has a name, he is Sir Fleetwood and he was played by a TSR editor. He was a Fighter class but as it reads in the description: "(Okay, actually a ranger.)".

    The dead cleric in the yoga-pants-chain mail is Aleena. Killed by Bargle the evil wizard. :-B

    A painting I found while rummaging around ancient history sites. It's a work by Paul Jamin from 1893 and depicts the aftermath of the gaulish sack of Rome in 387 BC. According to a tale from that time, when the Romans complained that the scales the Gauls used to measure the spoils were fixed, the guy in the picture, Brennus, threw his sword onto the scales and exclaimed "Vae Victis!" or "Woe to the vanquished!"
    The Romans paid.

    Anyways, here it is, called Brennus and his share of the spoils and I just love the expression on Brennus' face :p

    That Belisle pic, I occasionally google Dark Sun and that pic always comes up. He did the female monk I posted before.

    Brennus shares his spoils is amazing. I don't know its specific designation but I do love epic classical art.
