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.

are you ever going to offer large prints of you "Just for fun" pieces?
I would really love to hang this one up.

Amazing.
Truly a tribute to the master..
Though, could be also an homage to Boris Vlaejo(sp), I can see more Frazetta in this.  ^_^

lol, of course his would have shorter women, with bigger butts and lions with 6 legs, lol. But I recognize the influence even so. I think his women were done in what is known these days as the rubenesque style...but I still loved his work, especially what he implied more than painted in his backgrounds.

Loopydave Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015  Professional
Yes, there is something quite wonderful about his backgrounds and how they just hinted at things rather than illustrating them.

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
Reply
:iconloopydave:
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:
