Arthurian Heroes In Deities and Demigods

I am confident that the first and last illustrations are by Jeff Dee. Anyone care to hazard a guess as to the identity of the illustrator for the 1980 Deities and Demigods Arthurian Heroes?

Good clean comic style art.
Drawing a blank, although Merlin and Morgan remind me an awful lot of John Buscema & Ernie Chan's work in the Conan comics.
I don't know if they ever contributed any artwork to TSR back then, so it could have been someone messing around with that style.

You are correct about Jeff Dee. The others are by Kenneth Rahman aka "Elrohir" or "Eymoth" (as he is credited in DD&G). He was also one of the designers of TSR's Knights of Camelot boardgame, and contributed the cover art for the box and some interior art in the rulebook.

I always like those pictures. Good to know who did them.

Nice to learn that. I always liked those pictures and I still think about Lancelot and Gawaine with those pics.

Speaking of D&DG art, have you seen this?
