Angus McBride Has Passed Away
My condolences to family and friends,

His work was certainly filled with love and his spirit, and will surely inspire so many others for a long time...

blessed be

Indeed, very sad.

But, I agree he has left an unmistakable and far reaching legacy with his works who have been seen by, and admired by, perhaps a million people, and will continue to do so for several more years. As a fellow Artist, I think that is something we could never really grasp or imagine.

Cry Just when I made jokes about his recent "Gimli-like" trend in his latest pictures! In all a great illustrator!

This is sad news! I didn't realise it until now , but I have admired his work for longer than just my discovery of Osprey Roman books! I love his work! Was always a fan of fantasy art when younger. He has definately inspired me!

Sad news indeed. His work was a constant source both of reference and inspiration. He will be greatly missed but not forgotten.

Just noticed this, very sad news, his artwork as others have said was and still is some of the best on the subject. Sad

That's very sad news. I have always enjoyed his outstanding artwork.

He will be missed. Sad

He will be missed.
Such an excellent artist: an irreplaceable one.
He left us his marvelous body of work and no one can pretend to replace him or be his sucessor: we can only try to do our best in our own style and hope, with hard work, to produce artwork that can give people the joy that his work gave them.
There will always be only one Angus McBride!

After some years I learned how was any picture of him, without seeing the sign. The chainmail, the (always somewhere) birds flying, the details....Cry
I remenber that a friend told me one drawer had dead recently, and then I asked him- Angus McBride? and he said yes...
His Osprey books and the Rolemaster covers he draw set a very high standard for any drawer.

And of course he has influenced the way of seeing the past.

- Did someone noticed the birds in his drawings? There are few of them without. I wonder why...

Update :

It seems that Mr McBride didn't get a chance to contribute to the next book he would have worked on. Sad
