Have you tried to contact the user who posted it?

Can't see any email or other means of contact via Photobucket. Maybe I'm missing something, never really used it before.

Ah, okay. I can't find out the artists name, can you read it on the pic?

I don't know it's complete origins, but that was used for the cover of a November issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly many moons ago. Think during the whole 3DO/Jaguar/32x Doom port era. Somewhere around there. Back in the day when gaming magazines had actual content. That sucker boasted at least 300 pages if I remember correctly. That particular issue was exceptionally thick for a gaming rag.

Okay googled the sucker. It was the year 1994 and it was the December issue with over 400 pages. I might even have this relic still stashed away somewhere:

People still buy (physical) gaming magazines?

Nice find though. Even if Doomguy's face is a little creepy for some reason.

I wish someone could make a high quality scan of the IBM box, and use that art to remake a new HD Titlepic...

They're a dead medium. Think Nintendo Power recently printed their last issue, or it's upcoming. I haven't bought a gaming rag in well over a decade. Think the last time I ever looked at a Game Pro it was 80 pages long and at least a quarter of that was ads.

Also, I was hoping you could fill out a hard one, maybe hard, I dunno. I could probably find an 'okay' version if I remembered the whole title. The art was for Quake and had Ranger walking up castle steps that led to a wide window looking out over a larger castle. If I remember right, it claimed to be an official Id Sanctioned Modding Kit. The gameart I thought was really cool, and I found it on some shovelware site that had tons of covers, though they were small and meh. Any chance of knowing what I'm talking about? Any chance of finding good copies of the art? [/B]

Did you mean this one?

YEEEEESSS ♥

Are those the best versions? That was always such a cool piece.

For the moment, yes.
I don't think this is ranger, I think it's an enforcer.
