A Cover for Basic D&D

Last week, Wizards of the Coast released a free PDF of the Basic rules for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. Right now the PDF only contains material from the Player's Handbook but they will be updating the document in August with content from the Monster Manual and the Dungeon Master's Guide. 

 

I'll eventually end up printing out Basic D&D, likely sending it to a print shop for professional printing and binding. When I do so, the document will need a cover.
There's currently nothing, so I made this:

The art is Larry Elmore's Dragonslayers and Proud of It!, one of my favourite pieces of fantasy art. It was the opening page in the 2nd Edition Player's Handbook and I always thought it should be the cover.

 

(For a short time it kinda was, being the cover of Races of Ansalon for the 3e line of Dragonlance books).

 

I needed a cover, I had a piece of art that I always thought should be the cover... it was a no brainer. Enjoy!
