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.

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.

It was a while ago now, but I think it was about 4 days worth. Its painted quite large and some of the details are lost at this size, but I really do need to learn to paint quicker! :D

Frazetta and Gil Elvgren are the best it's true they definitely had an impact on me. if you have an art book coming out or already have one let me know i would absolutely buy it. you rock.
