Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

RIP Frank Frazetta

Aw man, this blows.

I've always really liked his art. Nobody in the history of illustration could draw barbarians and scantily-clad, Martian warrior princesses as well as Frazetta.

I guess I'll do my part and increase the amount of half-naked warriors in my own stuff as a tribute.

    frazetta made crazy posters and for the most part, a lot of his work on book covers weren't even specifically created for em. cats would just look at a frazetta painting and just attach it to something that seemed a fit

    also, molly hatchet album covers

    the most famous frazetta shot aside from the Death Dealer, is the big titty woman atop a pile of skulls reaching up alongside the leg of a stoic looking conan with a sword

    that picture is the basis for a lot of movie posters, including the original star wars: a new hope poster

    people blatantly copied this dude all the time

    thing is, the documentary where i remember learning this is probably more than a few years old

    memory serves, he's done a few paintings or illustrations since then? which speaks to his talent, doing something like that at his age, and competently
