More inspirational art

By Kaye Nielson, from East of the Sun, West of the Moon. A pre pulp illustration from a book of northern tales. I love the full lenght coat of mail and the shell shaped helmet.

Virgil Finlay, from Psychopompos, by Lovecraft. I love the intricate armor, these little images don't do Finlay's work justice. Editors admitted that his art was out of their league, but he was young, and took what they could pay.

Gray Morrow, I believe this was for one of Burrough's Carson of Venus stories, but to tell the truth, I don't remember now. With a flying tentacled bug-eyed manta creature pursuing our heroes escaping on ridding lizards though, it doesn't matter.

Virgil Finlay, From H. G. Wells, The Time Machine. That's a frikkin Morlock!

Virgil Finlay. at full resolution, his work is mesmerizing, the detail is unreal.
