Awesome Pic of the Week

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, my real life has been busy so of course my blogging life has suffered. I should be back to blogging sometime this week with new posts on a regular basis and a few new features.

This weeks awesome picture comes from the master himself, Frank Frazetta, arguably the best fantasy/science fiction artist of all time. If you are unaware of Franks art, and it is almost unimaginable to me that anyone would be, you NEED to check it out. This is the man who created the archetypal image of conan, and almost every fantasy artist that has followed after him has been influenced by his style.

So without further ado this weeks awesome pic, Dark Kingdom by Frank Frazetta.

All I can say is I want all my characters to look this badass, and be doing whatever it is he is doing.

What do you think?

  2. Pretty sweet picture. It actually reminds me of a lot of the 2nd Edition D&D pictures I've seen, as well as some of the Conan novels (of which I've read a lot). I actually have never heard of his name, but I'm sadly behind on knowing what actual artist names are. I just know what I like when I see it. And I like it!

  3. Frazetta is certainly da man!

    I love his stuff, and always turn to it for inspiration in my gaming these days. Lush visuals, heroic forms, full of action and the exotic. Great stuff.

    Samuel, you might also want to check out Larry Elmore, Keith Parkinson, and Tony DiTerlizzi, all of whom were popular during the heyday of 2e.

  4. I also like Justin Sweet. He is very Frazetta styled but still his own artist.
