Cover artists

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

Some more names, all from Reaktor games, and all taken from the credits section on the rear of their respective inlays:

Challenge of the Gobots - Eddy King (pic below from my own scan)
Deadringer - Richard Edington (inlay is in the archive if you want to check! ;))
Mountie Mick's Deathride - Johnny Johnstone (retrogames.co.uk, cropped version below for convenience)
Out of This World - Jim McCarthy (retrogames.co.uk, cropped version below for convenience, taken from C64 release but same artwork)

Image Image Image

Richard Edington has come up before on another Ariolasoft title (Bride Of Frankenstein) and I think Eddy King is going to be the same guy credited as Eddie King on Triaxos (again, from retrogames.co.uk) but who knows which spelling is the "correct" one?:

Napoleon at War - Jean-Baptiste Mauzaisse

The inlay attributes the painting to "Mauzaine after Gros", but I think this is a typographical error.

Jean-Baptiste Mauzaisse painted the image, as a copy of Antoine-Jean Gros' original
