Then and Now by JeffDee Then and Now by JeffDee
A side-by-side comparison between my 1980 drawing of Elric from the first edition of Deities and Demigods (TSR Hobbioes, 1980) and my 2011 re-creation of it. Check out my latest Kickstarter project to re-create my old TSR art: [link]

...Scrunched.
Like it better!

More texture and feeling for sure!

That gesture is supposed to ward off the evil eye, and Steve Ditko probably knew that.
When they dropped Elric and Cthulhu they should have added all those extra drawings you have since the book lost a lot of pages and they put nothing in their place.

Jeff, it is awesome to see you here. I grew up on TSR's D&D artwork and your stuff featured heavily in it. Glad to see some of these awesome images given new life!

I always loved your work, Jeff. When I first got into D&D in 1983, your work inspired my artwork. I really hope your kickstarter is successful!

Btw, if you ever are interested in letting a colorist play with your work, I would be honored to do one out of whatever you are allowed to recreate!

I remember Deities and Demigods 1st edition. Didn't you also draw Arioch, Xiombarg, and Yyrkoon?
