Arta Monday: Dragonspell

This art was everywhere in the 1980s. I am fairly sure I had a poster of this, that I was able to walk into a high street store (remember those?) and buy.

It has everything you would want in a fantasy painting: dragons, knights, wizards, a castle. What’s not to like? This art comes from Chris Achilleos.

    Oh wow, I’ve not seen that picture in years. A real slice of my childhood there. 🙂

      I was wondering if others would recognise it from years ago!

    One of my favourite bits of fantasy art ever. I had a number of his pieces in massive posters on my wall. This one was also used as the cover of the source book of the world of fighting fantasy. If memory serves, think it was called Krynn, it was the name of the world that Deathtrap Dungeon and the Warlock of Firetop Mountain, choose your own adventure books were set. And of course, that world was created by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone. Names we all know from early GW days!

      Wasn’t Krynn the name of the world Dragonlance was set on?

        Yep completely. This was Titan. As soon as you said that, it came back to me!

        They were my 2 favourite settings as a child. I’ll blame the passage of time rather than age 😂

        Yes. I could not have answered the question if someone asked me what the name of the world of the Dragonlance setting was, but as soon as you wrote the name it came back to me.
