I am not sure who did the pic. I know some of them were done by MoM members. If you could say which pic. is yours that would be great.

Well, I could pic out Lady Maelin's and Spiffy's (Bronze's). Thanks for putting these up though it seems that Maelin's is "horribly maimed" for some odd reason...

Was the "blue woman" also an artwork?

I'm so glad to see more of the art work that was sent in, besides the two that came from me. Those are wonderful!

That was a WOMAN? Her glum expression goes well with her colour.

I too loved the 12 Days of Turnover.

I think Maelin's must have had the wrong 'white balance' setting. It looks as though the camera was set for 'daylight' rather than 'incandescent' or 'fluorescent'.

Thank you Maw....I so much enjoyed getting to see Spiffy's incredible work again. I especially love the last one. He has such a marvelous grasp of what a Pern Dragon really looks like...in his work the Pern Dragon comes alive.

I think the blue person was suppose to be from the X men.

I was using my sister's camera and the lighting was not right. You can see the art work tho.

I wish I had a good pic of the globe frog. You can barely make it out. It is the 3rd one from the end of the one with the blue person.

That poor dragon and his rider looked exuasted.. It really shows how the man is draped across the dragon's nose and face. I've had days where I've felt that way.

The very last picture. There's a dragon laying on the ground. From his/her size it's probably from the nith Pass. The rider is laying across the snout on his belly, an arm is dangling off the other side of the snout. Both beings' eyes are closed. They seem ton look completely exausted.

T'mynn...The first, the third and the last drawing of Pern Dragons and Riders, was expertly done by Micah Johnson...better known here on MoM as *Spaceman Spiff*. He is an incredible artist...especially with Pern dragons. I very much enjoy getting to see his work, when and wherever possible.
