My favorite A/D&D art by far is Erol Otus's Cthulhu Mythos stuff in DDG. My favorite is Shub-Niggurath:

A close second is Yog-Sothoth:

My third favorite is the shoggoth:

If that little square is a fused EO, then it's Otus.





Yep, that's it.  The symbols I used got interpreted as a smiley, though. :)

No, unfortunately not. But Tony DiTerlizzi DID manage to get in touch with Tramp through various and esoteric means, and relayed the information.



Sadly, it appears that Tramp's taxi cab also serves as a Protection from Speak With 1e Artists spell. :D

Killjoy's #2 above (the Revenant) sent me back to the Fiend Folio to look up the artist. Russ Nicholson. Looking through the Fiend Folio, I really like his work. Alan Hunter, too. It's funny but the small number of Otus, Willingham, Roslof and Dee pictures in the FF look somewhat out of place next to the Nicholson and Hunter pics.



I searched the Acaeum Forums and there's never been a post that mentioned "Russ Nicholson" before! (although I believe we lost the Forums at some point). I did find an interesting and funny thread over at Dragonsfoot:

I added some info to deimos post:



Back covers:

Mono version --> Color version

B1 - Sutherland --> (didn't find this one yet)

C1 - Otus --> ? [Wizard confronting invisble coatl on pyramid]

D1 - Sutherland

D2 - Sutherland --> (D1,2) Willingham [Mind Flayer/"Scarlet Witch" casting Color Spray]

D3 - Trampier --> Jeff Dee [Silussa Succubus & Belgos Vampire Drow]

G1 - Trampier ?

G2 - Trampier ?

G3 - Trampier --> (G1-3) mini pics of G1, G2, and G3

S1 - Sutherland --> Otus [Party with Wizard about to put his head in Sphere of Annihilation]

S2 - Otus [adventurers approaching White Plume Mtn] --> Willingham ["Elric" with Blackrazor sword]

T1 - Trampier --> Jeff Dee [Two guys - same as 1984 PC Record Sheets cover]



Here's some trivia questions:

Do any of the tournament mods have back cover art?

What was the last TSR mod to feature back cover art?

What was the last TSR mod to have a product listing on the back cover?



UK1 has both (back cover art/product list); UK2 has neither; both are 1983, so it's sometime around then. Around then is when they re-designed the presentation to include the orange bar across the top (and put the same color on the hardback spine).

Nope. :)  The back of L3 is completely blank.

BC is right - i just checked too. nothing on the back.



i wonder if they rushed it out in the end on the print, and didnt take the time to actually put art on the back? what do y'all think?
