There is some specific Fantasy artwork (1980 or earlier era) for which I would like to find out who was the artist. The style is extremely distinctive and I remember back in the day such imagery was used on book-covers and illustrations in books and magazines.
In this particular case I don't actually have any samples to post, but I can mock up a sketch that clearly demonstrates the distinctive trademark style aspects, which should be recognizable to anyone who is familiar with this artist's work.
For other cases I can envision posting some sample pictures (I have pictures, but I don't know where they came from. Copyright status might be problematic, but that is an entirely different question.)
Would an Artist-ID question be on-topic for this site? The Faq and help-center don't give much guidance on artwork-id, but to me it is somewhat similar as story-id questions.
If it is on-topic I would like to suggest an Artist-ID tag might be useful as well.
P.S. I asked a question see here a little over 2 years ago on a somewhat similar subject which didn't get any votes to close. But it isn't exactly the same thing either. I only added the image in that question later to provide further clarification.
