Exclamation Pern Picture (From Kenzie's Mom)

I was wondering... A few years back when they had the web site up for the company who was going to do the TV show for PERN up on the net.. they had a triva contest and the prize(s) was a augtograph (Anne McCaffrey) picture with (I think) Lessa and F'lar standing on a ledge looking out over what could be the Bendon Ranges.. with a dragon in it of course

I won a copy of this picture.. which I will scan and put on a page for all to see when I get home from this trip... but I was wondering if anyone else won a copy of this photo.. it's VERY COOL and the prize of my McCaffrey collection.

That's a CGI composite, isn't' it? (Live actors, some real scenery, everything else filled in on the computer.) I wish the resolution were better--what is that stuff on the ledge in the background, immediately in front of and set back from I-assume-it's-Lessa-and-F'lar. On the subject of the actors--if that's F'lar, and assuming he's normal height, doesn't Lessa look a bit overtall? Not to mention a tad...more amply figured that Lessa ought? And what are they wearing? The results of a trunk sale from Xena and Stargate?

I guess Lessa's been eating rather better from the tithes than she did in Ruatha.

And does Lessa have a tattoo?


It's still a cracking picture though.

Thanks for posting the picture, I appreciate it very much. I'd indeed never seen it, let alone with the autograph. It is indeed a very special prizeto have won, just a pity that Pern TV never became reality

Thanks again!

By the egg...

That's one beautiful picture!!!


But who are those two people at the bottom left corner? At first, I got some crazy idea that they were F'lar and Lessa, but they didn't strike me as being them... Oh well. Just some random question.

Very nice though!

I believe that Bamsdragon noted in the original post that the people were Lessa and F'lar.

Puts me in mind of the beginning of a mating flight... :sigh: what a nice picture to have. Thank you for sharing it with us

FANTASTIC picture. I agree too bad the show never became real. It should and one would think if everyone was to write the SiFi network, maybe with all their resources they could do one season and see how the reviews go.

Lovely dragon! I could do without the people though. Look more like first-pass colonists than F'lar and Lessa IMO...

As I recall, Anne pulled the plug because the studio lied, as usual. She was to have control over the stories, costumes and sets. They agreed, but when they pressed for major changes she realized the show wasn't going to be HER P.E.R.N. They wanted a shallow, action series that would not be in her control.

Nice pic...but I can't accept that as Lessa and F'lar, they look like cavemen or something!

Now I'm glad there was no movie, they'd have Xena-ized it or something. "Thread's going to get me! Oh, Help me, Ramoth!" ::snort of derision::

Lessa looks too fat.

But the dragons are great!

What's with the giant moon? So many artists do that giant moon thing.

I wouldn't call her fat by any means, she looks healthy in that picture. However, Lessa is supposed to be quite thin, more than in that pic, not to mention very short.

The Lessa in the picture is too fat to realistically be the Lessa in the books.
