Glad's Old School RPG Art...

Post by Gladiator27 » Wed Oct 22, 2008 7:20 am

Hey everyone!

First time posting here, but I've posted my art at a lot of other gaming forums so some of these may look familiar to some of you. For those that have never seen them, I hope you enjoy them a little bit. My buddy, ATOM, who post here told me about this site and I've been meaning to post some of my stuff for a while now...so here ya' go.

A vast oversight on my part to not say how good this art is...! I love the Otyugh (sp?) and the Red Dragon pic, and the Halfling's dilemma in the most recent... :D :twisted:

Very nice! I especially like the "two-part" element of the last picture, where the heroes are crouching under the bedrock to enter the last chamber.

A beholder. Man, I still remember when I got my Monster Manual for Christmas in '79 (or '80) and read the entry for it. That thing was eerie then and still is.

Good work sir.

Yeah, it doesn't get much more classic when it comes to D&D monsters than a Beholder.

And thanks!
