Frazetta study by overdrivezero Frazetta study by overdrivezero
Study of Frazetta's Death Dealer painting.
This guy is probably my favorite artist (along with John Buscema and Brom). If you don't know his work you are probably under 13 years old or you don't know anything about illustration.
Check his stuff on: [link]
I wasn't brave enough to do everything of the original piece, but it was a great experience to try to paint like Frazetta.
Cheers!

Little update:
Oh crap, Frazetta's website is off line. I read that happened just after his wife, Ellie, passed away (My deepest condolences).
So I'm posting the link of an unnoficial website: [link]

Great choice! Frazetta is a king, and Death Dealer is a hell of a great character!

that was one of the first paintings that really inspired me too. Him and Alex Horley, ahead of their time... Great work capturing the mood with the palette.

Yeah! I totally agree!
Those Death Dealer paintings, to me, are his best ones.
I really like Horley's work too. I just bought his sketchbook. Excellent by the way.
I wish I could draw like Akiman and paint like Frazetta. That would be a killer-combo. hehe

Thank you by the way.

I'm not that good. But I have been practicing for the past 10 years. More seriously on the past 2.

Sheesh, ten years of practice will do it xD

Nah... you can do it in much less time.
I'm too undisciplined and lazy. 4 years of comfortable practice is more than enough. 3h per day. Not that difficult.
If you are obsessed you can do it in 2 years, but practicing really hard.

Bem , não tem outro jeito. . .

Se vc quer ser FODA , vc tem que aprender com os FODAS !!!

Melhor ainda se for com o homem que praticamente inventou a Fantasy Art !!!

. . . só de curiosidade , qual modelo de tablet vc usa ?

Não podia ter falado melhor. Tenho feito uma série de estudos de trabalhos de caras que eu considero fodões. Só não posto eles por aqui porque acho que o deviant eh mais pra coisas acabadas e menos pra estudos e tal.

To usando uma grapphire 3. Ja to ficando meio irritado com ela. Queria mesmo poder comprar uma Intuos 4. Mas aqui no Brasil o preço ta indecente. E vc?

Eu uso uma Trust , que tenho desde 2007 , mas só comecei a usar pra valer em 2008 , quando descobri o truque de botar umas folhas de papel sobre a superfície da tablet para dar uma "amaciada" XD

também desejo ter uma Intuos , mas só comprando lá fora , a dferença de preço é gritante !!

Interessante. Não tinha pensando nisso de folha de papel. Vou testar.
Engraçado, mas acho que surgiu uma oportunidade pra mim de trazer uma intuos 4. Uma amiga da minha mae vai pra NY. Vamos ver...

I love Frazetta! I've grown up adoring his works (I'm 21 now)! And this picture is really amazing! :)

Great work!

Yeah me too.
My mother gave me a Frazetta book when I was 15. That book was very important for me. It helped me to decide what I was going to do with my career.

Thank you so much!

Same for me, his works have given me my first passion for fantasy!
And now I'm a live-roleplayer! ^^

You're welcome!
Keep up the great work!

Thanks bro!
You definitely should! Its very funny to try to paint as Frazetta did. I have learnt a lot doing this one. Specially on how to paint muscles and how to deal with strong values.
