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

    Just a few weeks ago I found out that he was still alive and was delighted by this fact. And now he's dead. Well.

    I commented on these forums about how awesome it was that Roddenberry's wife was still alive and doing the ship computer voice

    1 week later she was dead

    I just told one of my brothers about this and he said something that was kind of depressing:

    "That whole era is coming to a close, man. All those guys are getting old and going."

    Are there any artists that have adapted his style? And I don't mean like just copy it with different characters in place, I mean inspired by and work with that style to come up with original stuff?

    It looks great and if it fades away with his death, that'll be terrible.

    did you not read what i said earlier

    people bite his shit all the time

    the look of most shirtless modern pulp fantasy

    that's him

    you can draw a line between now and when he did it

    though, for the most part design is more in line with trying to get a more realistic look, unless they using it for novelty

    i'm not trying to say it's an anachronism but aside from cary nord not many cats carrying that torch

    i mean, i could say frank cho but he's more about tighter linework

    though, when he was signing art books at em city comic con he'd point out interesting asses he enjoyed drawing

    "oh yeah, she hulk. see that? that's a big ol' ass!"

    I saw what you said dude, I guess I should said "are there any noteworthy copycats" or something. Didn't mean to set you off. D:

    I don't remember that one. I haven't seen an MST3K episode since they were airing brand new (up 'til a certain point after the new guy took over) - and I was a child back then.
