P.S.: Risada, would it be too much trouble for you to list or post what you think 4E's best artwork is?  I agree that some of it I saw I really liked, but there was a lot, especially in the core books, that was awfully cartoony and WoW-esque for me.  I don't happen to love Blizzard's aesthetic choices there, and there are a lot of things that work ok in a video game environment that don't in an RPG.  It would just be nice for me to cull out the stuff that was good.

Will look into it... I'm AFB from my friend's 4e books...

Here is a few I liked:

Seems slightly serpentine, but I think it fits better than the D&D 3.5e's MM3 one... It shows that the drake is a hunter.

Aside from their clothes, I don't know why but I like these. I also like ALL warforged art from 3.5, including the Pimpforged.

... I REALLY need to get a few 4e books on my hands, so I can post more....
