The line about a notarized will is funny, because the 1st edition AD&D character sheets had exactly that on the bottom of the back page.

Feel like I'm going crazy trying to find this piece in here. Can't seem to find it but I swear it was posted.
The photorealistic painting of the lady rogue saying something to a bard(?). Who made that? That style is so sick!

Glen Orbik, who created the painting used for the AD&D 2nd edition Trivia Game, a portion of which was then cropped for a color page in PHBR7 The Complete Bard's Handbook:

He only created two other pieces of art for TSR: the cover of adventure module GA3 Tales of Enchantment and an interior color piece for PHBR12 The Complete Paladin's Handbook (doesn't seem to have appeared anywhere else).

I hope this hasn't already been mentioned ITT but there's a documentary film covering the history of art in the D&D game that is just outstanding.

Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons

81+PEqTQsKL._SL1500_.jpg


It features interviews with many of the all-time best including guys like Elmore and Easley and many others. If you grew up looking at these guys' works you will get misty-eyed watching this film.

It's available on Amazon if you're interested. Highly, highly recommended.

I had no idea Mike Mignola ever did D&D art this is awesome. Did he do art for modules pre-Hellboy or something? Would love to see more if it exists.
