Survivor: D&D cover artists


Not a bad winner. After Otus and WAR were out I didn't want to downvote anyone (maybe Sutherland). Only voted for one, but there were 4 or 5 good candidates to win.


Slayer of Keraptis
Caldwell gets flak for being too cheesecake, and it’s valid criticism, but this was probably one of his most iconic images and wasn’t sexist or cheesecake in the slightest

I still can't get over the fact that Daniel Horne--a good artist, but not exactly one of the better known D&D artists--was included and Brom--one of the most iconic artists of the 2E era, and the Dark Sun artist, not to mention enormously popular during and after his D&D time--was not. In fact, there were quite a few who were not...it included most of the main ones but a smattering of relatively random ones.

No biggie, though. Just sayin.


A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
I'm just sitting here eating my sour grapes, giving the stink eye to all you Otus haters.
