Can't believe this is my 250th post! Woot!

Thought I'd mark the occasion with something 'purdy' so finally knuckled down to finishing a Frank Frazetta tribute painting piece I started many moons ago.

Based of the quick sketch [link] I did on the news of his passing some 2 years back, but this time I actually took the time to look at a book on animal anatomy :D

Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop.

Frank is one of my all time faves but this, for some reason, is giving me more of a Boris vibe. Awesome nonetheless dude!!!

Probably because my paint tends to be tighter, along the Boris approach, rather than the energetic Frazetta brush stroke.
Cheers!

excellent tribute.  I miss him too.  after seeing the woman leading Frazetta's "Dawn Attack", if she was invading the earth then I'wd join HER side.

Smart move... she's got the robots and spaceships to make your conquering plans succeed :D
Cheers.

i'd like to conquer but it's not the robots and spaceships i'm thinking about.
