Early artist's impression of X-29, from AvWeek.

The same drawing from Le Fana 147.

Sorry to resurrect...
... but is there a larger or higher definition version of this drawing somewhere?
 
 
Not really.  To my knowledge, it's from page 133 of Dan Raymer's "Aircraft Design: A conceptual Approach".  I could try to get a better scan in a week or so, if you still want a higher res image.  The image is less than 6.25 inches wide by 4.25 inches tall.
