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.

hey, just wanted to give you a heads up that a guy on instagram @bmoesart have drawn a copy of this (he chainged the hair and the painting is not as good) and letting ppl think he is the original artist of this piece

Thanks for the heads up :) There's a tradition of learning by copying other artists work, but its usually the proper thing to say what you are copying from - or at least acknowledging that its not your original concept. Glad he didn't post my work and claim it's his own though... I've had that happen to me on a number of occasions :(
Thanks for the faves and taking the time to send me this message :hug:

You're welcome. I really like your style. I more or less gave up on drawing and focus on metal work these days. More artisan than fine art, but I enjoy it a lot.

If anyone deserves a tribute it is certainly Frank.  The right words to describe how well you have this piece elude me.  I will say you have captured the pain and loss so very well. Please do more like this.

I'm sure I'll do something like this again sometime - probably after the next time I sit down and look through one of the Frazetta books on my shelf. :D

This is very fitting, great job. Loved the man's work (as I know we all did). I also feel you on the 'animal anatomy'. I did a 3D Jaguar and man, it seemed to take my mind forever to wrap around the idea of where all the bones and muscles went for the darn thing-smile. Best.

Any time my friend. Man, still trying to learn my way around this site. Just read my messages and saw you had replied here. Anywho, hope to speak with you more often, as your art has that depth that only an artist that has a deep love for what he or she does, shows through in their work... and yours most certainly does (if none of this makes any sense, don't concern yourself, as I am writing this half a sleep-smile).
