    Talking My tribute to Frazetta - Updated

    Hey All,
    here's my tribute to Frank Frazetta.
    When I set out to do this all I could think of was dragons and women. So I based it on The Grodon R. Dickson's Dragon Knight Series, Dragon & the George.

    I did this as a gift for a friend, will be printing it on canvas and mounting it.
    I can't put the huge file here so the details are pretty much lost, but I'm also uploading a cropped part to show the actual feel of oils

    Here's to a great fantasy artist!

    Long Live Frazetta!!


    Edit: Many Thanks to blurymind for spotting the center of gravity error. Now both she & I stand corrected. ( she's still leaning in the crop tho )

    Fantastic and excellent painted. So lovely. I really like it. How big is the original size? I am picturing it on a real canvas once you mounted it.

    Thank you so much Pai.
    I had such great fun doing it too!
    The original size is 18"X24"@150 dpi so it's 2700X3600 px. I first started it @ 300 dpi but had to reduce because my computer was screaming

    Oh, Fly, your work on this piece is simply stupendous!!! The work alone you did on the dragon is just masterful in itself! How lucky this friend is to get this wonderful painting done by you!

    Thank you so much Eileen. It's all thanks to AR3 I could do this. I have been trying to paint this since a year now, (I'd promised him a painting about a year back) this is probably the fifth version of the idea. I was never satisfied with any of the paintings so far. & then suddenly BAM, AR3 made it happen.

    Good Lord! That's it! I'm packing up my tablet and donating it! Fly, this is amazing on so many levels it hurts. Fantastic tribute and a huge inspiration. Well done my friend!

    I second Sketchism words. The treatment of the dragon is so cleaver painting light over dark giving the piece that special antique effect. Thanks for the lesson.
