Frazetta Tribute by ArtofOkan Frazetta Tribute by ArtofOkan
This is my tribute to Frank Frazetta and his illustration "The Death Dealer" He will always be remembered.
This is a reproduction of the Frank Frazetta's work and intended as a tribute to him. Official website of Frazetta family is down for a while, so I'm giving the link to an unofficial website for a photo of the original "Death dealer" illustration of the master, which is an oil painting; here's the link to it: [link]

Painted using Ps CS3, tablet.

Heheh:D I worked on the details a lot more on this painting, since it's a tribute to Frazetta:) I gave two nights to this 15 hours total probably. My first time drawing and painting armors and weapons:) I tried to give the texture with my brush strokes, there are many colors in this, oh it was so good to paint Frazetta's masterpiece. I learned a lot, thanks to him. Looking through the colors he used, I admired him even more. Frazetta is way above all other illustrators Marv, he may be Crom reincarnated:D

Frazetta was a painter, on par with the likes of Da Vinci perhaps (judging with my modest art knowledge), that's what makes him stand out so much more (he is beyond comparison in his field)
You should have a go at another Frazetta, you made this tribute look like you've been drawing armor and horses forever :D

Yes, he was a great painter, ı saw many brush strokes better than Rembrandt's strokes in his works. My art knowledge may be less than moderate, but I have a thing with brush strokes, watching how he moved his brush, I hope I can see his original oil paintings in his museum one day! So that I can see his strokes even better.
Really? Wow you honor me Marv, I wasn't sure about the armors:D I had no problem with the horse though, I've been drawing horses since age 5, maybe I didn't draw a horse before this one for years, but it's still in me I suppose:) I'll paint Death Dealer with a different pose and environment in the future:) I learned many tricks from this, I'll make use of them in our battle and in my Conan painting.
