Lodoss is similarly inspired by D&D as well as Zelda AFAIK, so I can see where you're coming from!

You don't find much new Deedlit art anymore, this is a nice surprise. Well done, too.

I like the details in the folds of Deed's dress. Good job. :) Lodoss was one of my first and favorite animes.

Thank you! To me, Lodoss (in particular the OVA) stood the test of time and I still find it the hallmark of the fantasy anime genre. Funny how it all started with a simple DnD campaign! :D (Big Grin)

Definitely. The OVA was quality content, but the tv series expanded upon the original novel more. If the tv series could have had the animation quality of the OVA it would have been alot better, but they were both good productions. I have the OVA OST; the music stands the test of time too. I even had custom t-shirts made at one point; I was a pretty big fan. The armor designs were really good; I liked Emperor Beld.

I've made Lodoss fanarts myself in the past, but that was many years ago, before I even joined this site. I tell myself occasionally that I should make more, but I never get around to it. I haven't been doing fanart like I used to, so I wouldn't know where to start. Most people just choose the most popular characters like Deedlit, Pirotess, or Ashram, but I'm not sure if I'd want to do that or not....plus there are other shows I could easily choose from too. 80s to early 90s had some of the best anime. It's nothing like today, where everything is a clone of something else.

I remember having some issues with Spark and co. in the beginning, but found myself warmed up to them by the end of the series. Animation quality dipping was really obvious, though I can't really blame them for cutting some corners with the TV budget. It's nice knowing you have been a big fan of the series. Did you saw it on VHS? I've only seen a little of it on TV and only got around to the BDs wayyyy after.

I guess you could do one on Kashu or Shiris and Orson together since they're usually shafted from the main cast. Some of my favorite series are from the 80s~90s so I definitely see where you're coming from. There are still a couple of good series off the fantasy genre in the 00s IMO. The Twelve Kingdoms is a wonderful take on eastern fantasy (with character designs by Yamada Akihiro, who did the Lady of Pharis manga), The Heroic Legend of Arslan got adapted for the second time and of course there's Berserk as well (but everyone would be better off reading the manga instead).
[EDIT]: I forgot about Drifters! Great anime adapted from the manga of the same name with common fantasy elements such as elves, orcs and dwarves, but the main attraction are the historical figures from all periods from Scipio and Hannibal from the Punic Wars to Japanese WWII soldiers dragged into the world to form a apocalyptic scenario.
