10 PIECES OF LARRY ELMORE ART THAT CHANGED GAMING
You could make that argument that Easley, Parkinson, or Caldwell shaped the destiny of D&D and TSR in the early 1980s, but in reality that is like comparing the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, or the Eagles to The Beatles. At the end of the day, any sane person knows there is no comparison. So too with artist Larry Elmore and his impact on gaming. Today I feature 10 of his pieces I think changed the landscape of the RPG industry, and I'd love to hear if you agree.
Mentzer 'Red Box'... right there the argument for anyone else is put rendered pointless.
'The Death of Sturm', so powerful I threw Dragons of a Winter Night across my 10th Grade English classroom!
Shadowrun, single-handedly brought the cyberpunk RPG genre to the masses
Larry broke upwards of a hundred thousand young men's hearts with the death of Aleena the Cleric
And many folks thought Clyde Caldwell defined vampires with Ravenloft... not so fast Clyde.
Star Frontiers... nuff said.
Innocence in the big fantasy city will ever be defined for me by this piece.
One of the finest examples of ink-wash you will ever see, Clarion the Cleric from D&D Basic.
D&D Expert, and the definition of character advancement in art
Dragons of Autumn Twilight launched TSR into a fiction publishing house and brought D&D to the masses.
