Simply put, Larry Elmore's art is the face of second edition D&D/AD&D.

Whether it's the face of the basic edition here:

later advanced levels, such as here:

or his AD&D incidental illustrations in the second edition rule books:

not to mention his close illustrations that follow the Dragonlance sagas - and book covers:

I always enjoyed them as a player - there was definitely a heroic tone set by the D&D covers.

I always found the listed AD&D illustration a bit disturbing, though - a gang of adventurers and the trophy corpse of a baby dragon.

The Dragonlance covers look a bit cheesy, looking at them now - but perhaps that is simply art reflecting art? :)

Anyway...in case anyone wishes to discuss the works of Larry Elmore. :)
