Friday Art Attack

If it isn't obvious, retro-pulp stories, which are confident and politically incorrect celebrations of Western Civilization are my favorite.  This comes, I think, from the Hollow World RPG, which is very heavily based on the Pellucidar series by Edgar Rice Burroughs and his imitators.

Labelled for convenience in case you didn't know what it was.  A D&D Yeti specifically.  I don't know what the deal with the horns are, except that clearly The Empire Strikes Back has had an effect on pulp that followed in its wake.  Yetis aren't exactly the same as wampas otherwise.

A sketch (prior to the movies) of the oliphaunts from Lord of the Rings.

Ubese bounty hunters, by Sam Wood, from the Wizards of the Coast RPG.  Most will recognize the outfit as one Princess Leia used as a disguise to infiltrate Jabba's palace.

I'm not quite sure what this is.  An undead donkey-headed guy?

Primarchs celebrating.  This is probably cover art for some Horus Heresy novel.
 I think that's supposed to be a drow, but the skin color is all wrong.  Art for these guys often doesn't match the descriptions.

Some kinda cheesy art that's nearly van art in its cheesiness. Keep in mind, though, that I was a little kid in the 70s.

Snake-men from some D&D publication or other.
