Frazetta tribute and others

A frame from Dogs. One of the first pages penciled some years ago. Mårten is copying from Bridgemas Life Drawing (haven't we all?). He has a book with Frazettas Death Dealer, the painting from the previous post, just to his left on the table. It's not easy to see but there is a copy of Herge's Tintin in Tibet leaning in the bookshelf. Of course the Robert Crumb reference is more obvious.

On the 10th of May Frank Frazetta passed away aged 82. A great storyteller and artist.
I first saw Frazettas work in a "how to" airbrush book around 1978. Frazetta was a big influence for me in my early twenties. When I went to my first art school I soon realised that Frazettas art wasn't "real" art. But I'm over that now, 25 years later. Oops, getting a bit personal here.

Work in progress.

Making progress with Gas. I would call this the layout. Hope to finish in a couple of weeks.

I made a new sky, inspired by Nordic Summer Evening 1899-1900, by swedish artist Richard Bergh.
