Good luck folks.

While your at it, can any of you tell me where this Stained Glass pictures artwork originated?
Name the Artist?

OK, how about this Sketch?

Don't know what the first one is called, but it looks like a Caldwell.



Saw the "stained glass" on ebay. It's from the AD&D 2E MM - Larry Elmore.



Last one is by Jon Mattson (saw his sig and had to consult the wiki to get his first name).


Dave, get the barbarian in the corner a drink, quick!

You can check out the rest of Bob Matteson's work @ www.dragonstuff.com (and he's a nice guy, to boot! :D ).

Is the top one by Steve Fabian? It's definitely not Caldwell, but it has certain aspects that seem similar to Fabian's work.

By the way, is it not centered in your picture frame?

Perhaps these pictures will clear up things.

This one above appears obvious... is this a game or do you really "need to know"?

The actual Elmore "Dragon Attack" painting has nothing to do with this stained glass piece unless I'm confused :? Wasn't Dragon Attack for a boxed set cover, puzzle, TSR art book? -Dragon attacking a knight on horseback-

Is this some sort of joke?

That's obviously Easley's MM cover:

I believe you're thinking of "Air Attack", which is on the cover of the Mentzer Expert set.

As for the B&W Dragon; Sorry I am not a Fantasy Art expert, so Please forgive my ignorance.
And why would you (Tharizdun) say it is obvious?
Obvious to whom?
The way you wrote that statement it reads as if you think anyone with a pulse would know.

And no, I dont NEED to know, but I would like to.

The B&W Dragon Print is one that I obtained a while ago and I do not know the artist, nor what the prints title is (if it has a title).
Even though the Artist has his (or her) mark on the print, I still have no idea whose it is, or the title.

Do you know and if so, would you please enlighten the ignorant (Me)?

Yes, I knew who the artist was for the others.

As for the Stained Glass Piece.
Does anyone know if it was a TSR/Easley authorised item?
As I recall the seller (This was some years ago) was selling these for a long while on E-Bay.

I see now.  From the first photos, I thought it looked like an "SF".

Hi,

I used to have a lead mini dragon that looked just like that.

Was a box set.

Bought in the 1980s sometime, in the UK. Maybe Citadel?
Maybe a gold dragon?

Cheers,
Malc


I have a plan so cunning, you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.

Yeah, that's the one!

I'm no fantasy art expert by any means!! Not even a little bit.

The way you wrote it, "Perhaps these pictures will clear up things."  I wasn't sure if this is a game or no :wink:

That close up of the signature does seem familiar, but I can't quite place it.  There's an artist that goes by the name "Fangorn" (he had an illustration or two in the original Fiend Folio), but I don't know if he uses that style of signature as well.

I didn't see him use that signature in the Fiend Folio, but the look of the dragons kind of reminds me of it (the one big illustration he did is towards the back of the book)

I could be completely wrong about this artist by the way...

When and where did you get this print?

I am fairly certain that the first piece is by Dan Frazier.

Here is a link to a piece by Frazier recorded on the Tome which has a similar stile of background. So close I think that it may be a related piece. Also checking his website the signatures seem to match.

I knew it reminded me of something. The cover to Dungeons.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.
