As the previous poster said the original spelling was Lolth. Lloth resulted from a typo and only seems to be found in certain areas of the Forgotten Realms, not other D&D setting.

Oh wow! This must have taken quite a bit of time. I absolutely love it. Great work. ~Breena

Gary Gygax invented the drow and their goddess, not Salvatore. And over the 30 years of D&D it has been spelled both ways, most likely due to misspellings that later had explanations written for them so they seemed less like typos. Nice picture... Smile

Yeah. I've read all the Salvatore novels, played all the Baldurs Gates, etc. Salvatore, in some books, uses Lloth, sometimes uses Lolth, though most other sources use Lloth. It's really up to you which to choose. Both are correct. Personally? I really think Lolth is gross off the tounge, and I usually go with lloth, as do most others. It sounds more...Drow. lol.

Wow, thats amazing! She's so beautiful, excellent job!

I like how you mixed the gorgeous drow woman with her Spider form. Very nice. Very good.

Oh yeah, and I agree, it's 'Lloth'.

I played the extension and I'm waiting eagerly for a new game like Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale. But I found the extension very difficult, I just didn't manage to kill one of the dragons.

Good picture of Lloth, although not what I had in mind. And yes, Lloth is the spelling I use too, although I just realised I probably pronounce it 'Lolth'. Ah well.
And you have played the extension to Baldur's Gate 2, haven't you? It's well worth it!

Hehe, I was thinking of Rilyn Wink

Am I that drow fanatic friend, or Rilyn? Wink Well, the solution is easy; R. A. Salvatore writes Lolth, most others Lloth.

I still like the pic a lot--especially the eerie atmosphere. The glowing mushrooms are cool!

Awesome painting, but im not sure if Lloth was half spider. I believe she was a whole female drow. Wink Not to be picky, but I might be wrong.

Wizards? o.O
I doubt very much that my works have the quality they expect. After all, I'm just a hobby artist.

Excellent artwork, you should submit your work to Wizards. I know they're always looking for artists.

By the way, it's Lloth.

Baldur's Gate rules. I played it three or four times, part 2 also two times. It's a pity there won't be a third part.

Guest's picture

It's Lloth. In all the infromation I have concerning the Drow it's been spelled Lloth. Though *misspelled* as Lolth.

Just finished playing Baldurs Gate, and even they spell it Lloth.

According to my Drow-fantatic friend both forms do exist. Lolth is more common in the Underdark (except Menzoberranzan), while she is called Lloth in non-Drow regions (correct me if I'm wrong).
I like Lloth better, though nobody understands me when I say it (especially because here everyone is familiar with just the German pronunciation, not the English one. And for me, Lolth is a jaw-breaker Wink

Guest's picture

Lolth not lloth

Thanks, I definitely will paint more Drow. There are far too few Drow on Epilogue (I don't understand why everybody likes those Elves better ... I mean, I also love Elves, but they are by far not as great as Drow Wink

What are you waiting for. Paint drow some more.

This is beautiful...

Art at its best.
