Re: Frazetta Museum

Thanks Mares R. that is one cool dude and a friend of mine did a big copy of it that was superb, it is on my list to do also! that is the closest I have come to seeing the real thing, rather than a repro in a mag or online nowadays.
will post my wip here too.
this is the one I am planning to do, notice how these guys and gals had the coolest accessories and weapons to go with their tough guy personaes I want a hat like the warrior and a necklace like conan here, maybe I will just have to do both of these :

Re: Frazetta Museum

I had The Silver Warrior on my wall all through High School, and beyond...

Gotta say The Death Dealer rules as well




I would give much to see an original. Can't imagine how amazing a whole museum would be...

Re: Frazetta Museum

Composition-wise, I think we all have a lot to learn from Frazetta. His designs are always very intense and vibrating with life.



He was clearly influenced by Renaissance artists like Michelangelo:

Count me in that group too. Wow, I had no idea these were all done by the same artist. I ran across them everywhere through my youth. "The Death Dealer" was even on an album cover (Molly Hatchet IIRC). Fantastic stuff.

Re: Frazetta Museum

Frazetta was absolutely one of my art heroes. When Boris came along, I loved his paintings, too. As I began to become familiar with more illustrators, I found that every once in a while I would see a painting or painter that may have influenced Frazetta - or would be of interest to Frazetta fans. While N.C. Wyeth seemed to work in many styles, a couple of his paintings seem very "Frazetta-like."





Another artist that Frazetta fans may like is J. Allen St. John - best known for illustrating earlier versions of the books of Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Re: Frazetta Museum

Yes thanks Don, I am only 40 miles away from where Pyle, the Wyeths and others lived and painted so I have seen the motherlode of NC's work including those first two, many times at the Brandywine and Delaware Art museums, in fact I am planning on yet another visit over these holidays too!

Re: Frazetta Museum

I found a video tour of the museum back when it was open.
others commenting on this video are weeping about the closing too,
they have to open it back up, they just have to
Notice how far off the color is in the Conan I posted vs the real thing
I have been drawing it and it is extremely challenging.

Re: Frazetta Museum

So I began drawing Mr. C on a cheapo 12x16 canvas panel with pencil. I go over it and soak it with linseed/oms. If graphite ever migrated through paint it will be in this one but I ain't skeered:

thats all i need and like to work with because I so love drawing with paint and brush. will put in the darks first and follow the colors in that video rather than the orangey yellow repro. Either behind or below every good man is a good chica too
