    The master artist is gone. Probably the most influential fantasy artist of all time imo.

    Even if you don't recognise the name you will recognise his paintings.

    'Tis indeed sad (even if I feel 14 years old again admitting it). But none of those links work btw (they take me to the Disney international site).

    Sorry about the links, was expecting some hotlink wankery.

    I loved his round women, especially their arses(he painted them often enough).

    I love this mothman picture though, was a fav as a kid.

    I'd never really noticed before, but I reckon Bisley owes him a bit of a debt...

    It's difficult to think of a fantasy artist that doesn't.

    Yeah i'd say nearly anybody in fantasy art/comics/scifi has been influenced by him. Probably more so that Vallejo.

    Franks Pillowbook. Slow as hell though... given the news.

    Have to admit, I still get the Fraz and Vallejo muddled up, but there's only one true master.

    I always thought of Frazetta as the more 'arty' one, he left a lot more to the imagination and was a bit rough and ready. Vallejo went hyper-realistic. Both awesome*.

    *Fraz is better though :D
