Glen Michael Angus (1970-2007), also credited as Glen Angus, was an artist who drew for Dungeons & Dragons publications between 1994 and 2007. His most notable D&D works included the genies and giants in the Monster Manual (3.5) (2003), and several of the Norse pantheon in Deities and Demigods (3e) (2002).

Works[]

AD&D 2nd edition[]

Glen's first D&D art credit was the TSR box set Council of Wyrms (1994), in which he inked Arnie Swekel's pencil art. Artwork from the Council of Wyrms Campaign book, page 5, appeared in the supplementary article Dragon Slayers, Dragon #205 (May 1994), p.92. The original AD&D Council of Wyrms Setting{{UnknownBook}}.

The pair would go on to collaborate on later D&D works. They were sole interior artists for Wizard's Spell Compendium Volume Three (1998), Wizard's Spell Compendium Volume Four (1998), and Return to the Tomb of Horrors (1998). They shared that position together with other artists in Night Below (1995), Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume Two (1995), Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume Four (1998), Monstrous Arcana: I, Tyrant (1996), The Rod of Seven Parts (1996), Wizard's Spell Compendium Volume One (1996), Wizard's Spell Compendium Volume Two (1997), TSR Jam 1999 (1999), and the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Game (2e) (1999).

Glen was the solo interior artist for Eye to Eye (1996), World Builder's Guidebook (1996), Evil Tide (1997), Cult of the Dragon (1998), A Darkness Gathering (1998), Dawn of the Overmind (1998), and Masters of Eternal Night (1998).

Glen also contributed interior art to Priest's Spell Compendium Volume One (1999), Tale of the Comet (1997), Of Ships and the Sea (1997), Prayers from the Faithful (1997), and The Grand History of the Realms (2007).

D&D 3rd edition[]

Glen is best known during the D&D 3rd edition era for his artwork of monsters and gods.

Glen contributed art to the Monster Manual (3.0) (2000), where he drew the djinni and efreeti on page 96; and the cloud giant, stone giant, and hill giant on page 101.[1] These works also appeared in the Monster Manual (3.5) (2003). In Fiend Folio (3e) (2003) he contributed the blackstone gigant.[1] He is also credited in Monster Manual II (3e) (2002).

He drew several gods in Deities and Demigods (3e) (2002), including Athena, Apollo, Heimdall, Thor, Surtur, Sif, and Tyr; amusingly, Tyr has the wrong hand missing in his drawing. He contributed the art of Shar and Talos to Faiths and Pantheons (2002). For Unapproachable East (2003) he drew the Durthan, Nar Demonbinder, Nentyar Hunter, Nilshai, and Volodni.

Glen illustrated Arcane Lore:Blessings of War, Dragon #299 (Sep 2002), p.75. He also illustrated the elaborate character sheets appearing in Dragon magazine issues #301 and #302, a collaboration with Arnie Swekel, which he sold from his website in 2004.[1]
