I don't like any of the pics.
It cheapens the imagination, imho.
Even if it's accurate it's too cluttered and has too many levels.


This one and the one below it just look dumb:
But I fully admit it's better than anything I could do!

Well, we cannot fault the concept, we who have probably at some point argued about the color of Linden's underpants and other things equally best left to the imagination.

And, yes, she seems to have been faithful to SRD's dimensions, which are preposterously huge. Over 100 levels? Yeeks.

Okay, here's some more pics, this time from Realms of Fantasy by Malcolm Edwards and Robert Holdstock:

Andelain



Coercri



Foul's Creche



Kevins' Watch


Coercri is spliced because the bloody drawing is on 2 pages; Andelain and Foul's Creche were also 2 pages, but luckily they were also on the back of the dustjacket, which is what I scanned. Big Grin

Wow, thanks dAN. The Coercri and Fouls Creche ones in particular are awesome.

I had no idea that so many depictions of scenes/places in the chrons existed.

I remember seeing these when I first found the watch.

Wasn't there one of Lena? And one of the Search from the 2ns chrons?

Larger versions of that artwork, and more, can be found on the old antgear site.


Lots of Revelstone pictures here.

Anyone ever seen this one?

..The artist certainly needs to work on his faces

I appreciate the artist's effort, so I don't want to be too hard on him (besides, I'm starved for any kind of Chronicles artwork). But...yes, Mhoram and Satansfist do look odd. And is that some kind of albino Ranyhyn behind the Giant-Raver?

I also have that Realms of Fantasy book that dAN scanned the pics from. Very cool book. The accompanying essay on Donaldson is also informative. In fact, I think that piece was where I first learned that SRD had a possible Covenant story kicking around after the Second Chronicles.

The book also has wonderful art and essays on Middle-Earth, Earthsea, Gormenghast, Urth (for all you Gene Wolfe fans), and other realms. If you see this book in a used bookstore, grab it!

A quick look through LM'sV suggests Drinny was brown, not white. After Mhoram whistles and waits, "he saw a dull brown movement making its way toward him out of the mountains." Unless he was too much in the shadows to be anything but brown or gray.

Doesn't the steps on Kevin's Watch go around the pillar?

Oops... make sure you set Google to not filter results to see this.

i have always liked the artwork on the original covers of the series more than anything else out there, or on subsequent editions. i'd like to see a comprehensive book of drawings/paintings of the Land and characters by that artist.

Just always the way i pictured it in my head, as more of steep stairs instead of a ladder. Must have been something I read to put that there in my mind, or I've always been crazy. Smile

Yeah I thought it was extremely steep and winding with more rough-hewn stairs (though not around the pillar.) I also pictured a larger top. Then again it's been a few years since I read the description of it in Lord Foul's Bane.

When you have a column that is 1000 feet high, how could the stairs not wrap around? the graphic doesnt make any sense, it looks more like a ladder there. I always thought they wrapped.. I looked at LFB's description, it doesnt seem to say.

On the matter of KW's steps, from the beginning I had always pictured them going up in a straight line, not wrapped around. So the painting looks more or less accurate to me (although, yes, I agree that the top of KW should be larger).
