...I find that many Otus drawings catch my attention, and stick in my mind far longer than other early rolegame artists do. His style evokes the exotic and the macabre in a way that few other artists can match.

The minotaur of the Caves of Chaos with his mail coat and spear. (Erol Otus from the early printings of D&D module B2: The Keep on the Borderlands, TSR, 1980.) This was replaced in later printings with Bill Willingham’s version and the text was changed to update his stats, reduce his # of attacks and increase his spear damage.
