Damn. Somebody knows their way around a set of colored pencils. That's some excellent work, especially the heroes vs. kobolds one.- Brian
Thanks Brian. Wouldja believe all of those were colored with markers, crayons and a bit of ball point pen? I wish I'd use pencil -- the bleedthrough from the markers was rough on my books!
Those are indeed by Holloway, as he illustrated every single creature in the Monster Manual II. It's little wonder that I consider that book the last gasp of the old school.Damn.
I've never seen anything like this. I'm surprised actually, because it seems quite natural now, in retrospect, to color in all those pictures. Good stuff! I actually used to make little captions under much of the AD&D art. Stupid one-liners from when I was 13.
James,Those are indeed by Holloway, as he illustrated every single creature in the Monster Manual II.MMII has an amazingly high level of consistency in style and quality across the entire book, so I can believe Mr. Holloway did all the art. But my copy also lists interior art credits for Harry Quinn, Dave Sutherland, and Larry Elmore.Still, both of those look very, very much like Holloway's work, so I could easily be convinced he did them.- Brian
