    A D&D race known as Vaati or Wind Dukes. 7 feet tall, fly at will, various air related powers, androgynous, native to Greyhawk. Before D&D went 3.0 this appeared in the AD&D Montrous Annual Compendiums. This was one of the better images.

    A line a fantasise which fits given SW going to Disney. Stealing utterly from Malificent: "Now shall you deal with me, Jedi. And all the powers of the Darkside!"

    I went searching for interior art from AD&D Encyclopedia Magica. Very difficult to locate online. Ran across a Faust from Harry Clarke.

    What I like here is the attack/flight pose by the largest pictured dragon.

    A tiny sample of pencil drawings by Arnie Swekel who's work has been in every type of gaming for decades. I went looking for Encylopedia Magica stuff but found these items which I had never seen before.

    And so much more. There were many "blogspot" jpg's I'd love to post but they never last long before Red-X and I don't want to photobucket every damned thing I see.

    We could use some Fred Fields in here...

    [​IMG]

    What I like about Fred's work is that A: Yes, it's mostly semi-erotic, very hot ladies, B: He is an absolute master of the human form and of color/light interplay, and C: I met him once at Gen-Con.

    I'll come back to Fred Fields. I looked for Micahael Whelam since I love that Black Sun Rising cover and find that he is one of those artists whose name slipped under my radar even though I have seen his art for decades.

    He did a lot of Elric stuff too, and I like not one bit of it. Something about the bare white legs and bad poses just turns me off.

    I could be wrong, but I always thought this depicted a Forgotten Realms Nether Scroll, but it winds up being something else entirely.

    I didn't know this before I googled this stuff but he also did some badass western art:

    Dipping my toe into Wagner's Ring cycle of which my knowledge is only superficial at best. Donaldson's Thomas Covenant books are inspired by them as is apparently the Gap Cycle which I am currently reading.

    Ever not have any concerns over a character until you see a really awesome piece of art of them?
