Frazetta's Death Dealer by Wulfsbane Frazetta's Death Dealer by Wulfsbane
I felt it fitting to start off my first submission here with a piece representing a famous figure in the world of fantasy paintings made up by the legend that is Frank Frazetta, one of my biggest influences. For this sole purpose I visually analyzed his works, particularly of the Death Dealer in order to stay true to his character - imitating the overall atmosphere (tried to at least) which was fun actually. Did this at about the same time while doing The Crow fanart.

good job that has a lot of expression. if you dislike I use it in a musical cover art. is that I have a heavy metal band and I like the strength and expression of this art.

I agree with Kruth because the arm is so in the face of the viewer it needs more loving that what you gave it. I mean its a great piece I like the darkness in it. Heck of alot better then I can do lol. Gonna go check out your other works now

I seriously like how you did your metal materials. Everything has the slightest detail, but you can still see it, like the veins in his arms. This is awesome and you are an awesome artist sir.

um
is this based off of a pic already done?
cuz ive seen this exact image before in a Frazetta book
and every detail looks the same
so either you are a master as image copy
or this is stolen
now im not accusing
im simply askin

I don't steal other people's art. If it is 100% the same as it is from the book like you said, then that only means they stole it from me. I want to see this Frazetta book you mentioned so I could report the theft myself.

Yeah, that's pretty much how I did it, used Frazetta's work as reference and inspiration. Afterall it's his character that I wanted to paint.

"Death Dealer" is by far my favorite piece by Frank Frazetta. Great job on this piece. :D

Awesome homage! I do see this piece is from a couple of years ago, so I'm going to have to run through your more recent works for sure!

What with Frank's birthday coming up, I fired up my a tribute homage deathdealer painting of my own, please have a look! :D [link]

Did you do this in painter or PS (if so, which version?)?

Glad you like my tribute, and I'll be sure to check yours out, too :nod: Yeah, it is pretty old so I might have to do a better one someday soon hehe. As for your question, I believe I used Photoshop 7 at the time. I didn't have my Wacom Graphire then, so I had to use a crappy 3.5 by 4.5 inch tablet from Genius.

Now I'm using Photoshop CS and I got Painter X. Currently using a Graphire 4 (4x5) but pretty soon (this month actually) I intend to upgrade to an Intuos 3 (6x8) :D

aaah congrats! I really like the intuos 3 (6x8 also). It's the one I lug around with me, otherwise at home I use a 12 x 18 Intuos 2 monstrosity!
