Art of the Genre

There are great fantasy artists, and then there is Angus McBride. That is how I see things at least, and I’m always incredibly impressed with the amount of work this incredible South African [by way of England] artist was able to produce in his lifetime.

For me, Angus was how I was introduced to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien with the Middle-Earth Role-Playing game by Iron Crown Enterprises, but realistically he was much better known for his historical paintings done for Osprey.

Whatever way you managed to view a McBride, his ability to capture the power of a scene was beyond question. Today, I’ve pulled some of the images that really hold my attention and inspire me not only as a Dungeon Master but also as a lover of history.
