Restoring Lost Art - Pictures from Monster and Treasure Assortment Set Three: Treasure

In the final installment of the pictures included in the loose leaf Monster and Treasure Assortment, here are two unattributed pictures.  The first one reminds me of the art work on pages 172 and 173 of the DMG.  Probably the barefoot guy.

Finding Treasure

I'm tempted by the amount of shading on the second to assign it to Trampier, but I really can't say for sure.  Again speculation is welcome in the comments.


  1. I'd guess Sutherland for the first one. Could that be a "DCS" hidden in the wood grain of the chest (lower right corner)? I would expect better draftmanship from his though...the sword hilt and rolling pin (scroll tube? rod?) are hinky.

    1. Thanks, I think there is a "DCS" at the foot of the right hand pillar in the first drawing. Pure speculation, but I wonder if the heavy lines could be due to some image resizing to make an existing drawing fit the available space. I don't remember exactly when I first saw a copy machine with an enlarge function. I know we had copiers in the dorms back in the late 70s, but don't remember playing with resizing on them.
