Hey every one, new here.

Thought I start a thread for the old beards.

How about some classic pics of, old school D&D women.

Bonus points for a half naked chick by a demonic alter. :lol:

I mean no offense to any ladies, just a bit nostalgic of the past.

An armor malfunction waiting to happen, that. Just pray the paparazzi aren't around.

Larry Elmore defined so much of what I think of when I think D&D. His work is classic and the women he portrayed were almost universally of the strong, confident, heroic sort.

And impractically clad. Yes, a warrior woman would wear a chainmail bikini, plate mail halter top exposing her midriff, or ringmail armor that shows a generous amount of cleavage. That's really wise in battle. (Distraction value really isn't worth going unarmored.)

True. But they make for very gorgeous paintings... :)

Practicality? Seriously...is that what you think of when you look at a Larry Elmore classic like that? Dude, get your priorities straight. :p

There's not much in any fantasy painting that's practical.

I love that AD&D guide, talk about player motivation.

I'm wincing at the pinch factor, mostly.

You have to love a good Elmore painting. I bought a Snarf Quest book from him because I have no wall left to hang big things on.

I just can't help but love any Larry Elmore or Jeff Easely (sp?) painting. But as mentioned, those paintings are what us "old beards" grew up on. The women were beautiful, and the scenery was just awesome to behold. This is not to be sexist, but I don't remember a lot of girls playing in my day, so they slanted everything to us boys. Sorry girls...

My two cents,
Meste
:cool:

So, anyone going to post more pictures? lol Or do I have to go looking for my old material for one to scan? :D

I like the work of Luis Royo since he has a more realistic style concerning proportions.

Place me on the large proportion side. ;)

When she uses her magickal glamour on you, you can't help but be mesmerized by her beauty.

Neo-classic art: Tony DiTerlizzi work is so very pretty.

As an old beardless one, (i'm female) I love Elmore and Easley. I wish I could afford more of their work.
