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

Loopydave Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2015  Professional
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
