Umm, this last one is from the DRoP calendar, and not from the DF comic...

You trying to confuse us Hans?

No but somebody was surely confusing me by naming it so it seemed to be coming from the comic. Question remains, was I confusing myself or was somebody else confusing me

I'll remove the pic; to avoid further confusion

Considering that Ruth didn't hatch until DQ, you should have known the pic wasn't part of the DF comic!

Robin Wood's version of F'lar is much better (though the comic book characters were pretty clearly modeled on Robin's portraits, they're just not as good especially at odd facial angles).

I most definitly agree..I like Robin Woods version heaps more...But when you see the front of Lessa's face, she's abit more of how I thought she looked in the comic...but thats just me....

I have had these books for many years, they are among my most treasured posessions. They were the only things that were there, that brought the books to life. Until Robin's book, her book is fantastic. It brought all the people to life for me. It change my minds idea of what some of the people looked like, but that was also interesting because she did that with Anne looking on. So for me it was more what they looked like to Anne when she wrote the books. I have the picture of Robinton on my wall, she said she had it hanging obove her fireplace,and I like looking at it knowing she looks at hers too. Besides I realy like the picture, Robin did a great job. I bought two books so I could take pictures out of one and frame them. That way I can have my Pern friends arround me all the time in my studio. I wish there was more books like Robins, only of her other people in other books and worlds. I would love to see what some of my other favorite people look like to her. That way they could truly come to life for me like the people of Pern have.

Maelin, the original of the Robinton portrait doesn't hang over Anne's fireplace (I doubt it ever did, as it is an oil painting ) but it can be found in Anne's dining room at Dragonhold-Underhill. Here's a picture of me and that portrait taken in 2002. If you want to see more of Anne's hous and its inhabitants you might want to visit the part of my website (The Pern Museum & Archives) that is called The Dragonhold Experience: http://www.pern.nl/trip_index.html

Hans, Thank you so very much for the picture of you and the fabulous painting. How wonderful to have been there, and to have met Anne herself. Only a dream unrealized for me. But maybe some day. I am so in love with this site, and the people here. You all are truly like my own wish team, I ask and you provide, and some times I don't even have to ask. This truly is more than I could ever have hoped for. I am a fan of Anne's for life and now of MoM's too!
