Deryni Portfolio of 1981 is a fanwork by Pyracantha.
I produced two portfolios of black and white fan art in 1981. One was from Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Darkover," and the other was from Katherine Kurtz's "Deryni" world. I copied the drawing pages on a photocopy machine and sold the folios at conventions, innocently unaware that I was violating copyright. I sold a lot of them before I was requested to stop. I still have some of them somewhere, probably where I stuffed all the other fan art and magazines I illustrated.

"This piece is from my "Deryni Portfolio of 1981." It illustrates one of the action-packed scenes of Katherine Kurtz's DERYNI RISING, where Alaric Morgan, the King's Champion, must fight out a duel with Ian, the champion chosen by the villainous contenders for the throne. The duel takes place in the cathedral where the young king Kelson is about to be crowned. I admit that I wasn't a great action artist. I took a lot more time and attention doing the background than the figures. I know this is probably a "re-blog" repeating an old entry but after more than 3000 posts I just get lost in the repertoire. This would be fun to color in, if I had the time or energy.... Black ink on illustration board, 8 1/2" x 11", mid to late 1981." -- Deryni Duel by Pyracantha (February 10, 2018)
