Default Oh! Fantasy Art!

The requested antithesis of that thread for mocking such stuff. Here's some stuff what inspired the creation of it (almost entirely from Daikaiju, oddly);

Let's just assume I already make a thread named "Oh? Fantasy Art?" and avoid the obvious mimic.

Here, I'll even give you an image:

Eva Widermann is one of my secret favorite fantasy illustrators. She's got a nice, unpretentious style, and is particularly good at doing expressive female characters, and hunks. The thing that she absolutely kills on, though, are the 'small' races like gnomes and halflings:




She makes them immediately identifiable without making them into midgets, mutants, perspective errors, children, muppets, or just completely blowing it like 5E.

I heartily approve the idea of doggie-dragons.

I understand that the Manticore will enroll you in the school of pain and teach the class, and further that he'll kick your ass with his feet and kick your feet with his gigantic ass.

The guy and the gal together seem pretty happy even with their grievous wounds.

They're all ladies, cause that's how Lamentations of the Flame Princess does it, I guess.

This is the character on the left [HARD-'R' VIOLENCE].

EDIT: While I'm at it, I might as well link this killer piece [SLIGHT BODY HORROR, 'STATUE' NIPPLES] by the same artist for the game.

back when work used to stock the Grindhouse Edition LotFP starter we all used to have a little giggle over the ritual of trimming a post-it note to cover the nipplage on the cover.

I am I guess ambivalent toward the Flame Princess dudes as they are clearly sick weirdoes but their sick weirdo shit is several levels more inventive than the usual run of nerd-industry sick weirdness. it is always a delight getting in whatever they come up with for Free RPG Day.

You just reminded me of Discworld's tiny, dog-dized swamp dragons and their treatment as a very, very volatile kind of pet therein. Which in turn led to a GIS of swamp dragons, which then led to finding out these official UK variant covers by Marc Simonett:

I may have just purchased a used copy of that game based on this art alone.

So Eldred is the "wizard of warriors"? I imagine his spellcasting goes something like this.

The sense of material alone is incredible.

It's a character portrait for the Etsy age.

Unfortunately not. I thought there might have been, but I'm fairly certain that I was thinking of a Warduke miniature they based on another of Reynold's Dragon covers.

But you can approximate one by strapping a Todd McFarlane sculpture to a ferret?

I've said it before, but Denis Loubet's cover for Ultima V might be my favorite game cover ever.



The Shadowlords are just so damn intimidating.

Fruit dragons are adorable right up to the point where their food starts fermenting. That's when they start doing things like attacking your nose because it looks like a strawberry, or their instincts kick in and they try to abduct your daughter. Then you get to spend the money from the year's surplus on a dragoncatcher - the lowest class of adventurer.
