This project is the 8th installment of my ongoing effort to re-create my old TSR / Dungeons & Dragons artwork – which was destroyed* by some thoughtless functionary to make room in TSR’s files. Last time, I re-created twelve drawings from the 1981 Basic and Expert D&D rulebooks. This time I’m re-creating four drawings from the Nonhuman chapter of the original 1980 edition of the AD&D book called ‘Deities and Demigods’.
Listen to an interview including a discussion of my efforts to re-create the lost TSR art here.The new artwork will be posted to my DeviantArt page (jeffdee.deviantart.com) as it's completed, so you can see how they turned out.
The portraits for eight characters in the Nonhuman chapter of the original Deities & Demigods book were left blank. Every set of four postcard prints - and every set of four signed 8 1/2" x 11" prints - will ALSO include prints of brand new drawings of these overlooked characters when backing reaches the following levels:
UNLOCKED! $1200: Rillifane Rallathil, Wood Elf god of Nature
UNLOCKED! $1400: Hruggek, Bugbear god of Battle
UNLOCKED! $1600: Deep Sashelas, Aquatic Elf god of Knowledge
UNLOCKED! $1800: Skerrit, Centaur god of the Forest
UNLOCKED! $2000: Grolantor, Hill Giant god of Persecution
UNLOCKED! $2200: Yondalla, Halfling goddess of Protection
UNLOCKED! $2400: Eadro, Locathah And Merman god of Water
UNLOCKED! $2600: Lolth, Drow Demon Queen of Spiders
This project is dedicated to James M. Ward and Robert J. Kuntz, the authors of Deities & Demigods.
*Note: A few pieces are known to have survived, but in most cases there's no way to know. I am therefor re-creating everything.
