I originally created this painting in 1984, first in oils on canvas and then a few more times in acrylics on illustration board till the correct vision emerged. Now 30 years later I've reconstructed this scene in 3D so we can explore this adventure dynamically. Enjoy!

2: Dragon #92 [by Den Beauvais]

Artist Den Beauvais is the only one to make it on this list twice, and I think he probably could have done so even more, but I have to limit things somehow!

Although his Chess series is stellar, and he's done some other incredible one-shot pieces, his cover for Dragon #92 is one of the most D&D game-evoking images that Dragon ever presented to the fans. It has a bit of everything in there from true D&D adventuring party, to dragons, and even some great swords & sorcery elements with the half-clothed maiden.

The crumbling bridge and centaur knight complete the scene with just that correct mix of terror and salvation. Truly an incredible vision on his part.


Prove to me that art has value. Help support me when I create projects like this to entertain you and donate a little something if you can. Every little bit helps. Thank you very much!  - Den Beauvais Email Den
