Imitating Frazetta [Dec. 26th, 2010|04:59 am]
Jesse Hamm
While monkeying around with that Frazetta painting yesterday, I was reminded of how difficult it is to paint the way he did. Along those lines, here's a gallery of submissions to an upcoming art show featuring homages to Frazetta's style (Not Safe For Work -- and frankly unsafe wherever people object to balloon-breasted biker chicks astride giant lizards):

What's interesting about this collection of images, as opposed to any other collection of Frazetta-inspired work, is that these artists' goal of Frazetta-emulation is paramount and explicitly stated. This means that any departures from Frazetta's approach here can be studied as mistakes, rather than mere differences of taste. What's of particular interest to me here is departures from Frazetta's approach that appear intentional. Why would artists intent on imitating Frazetta refuse, collectively, to follow his lead at certain points? More on that further down. Read more...Collapse )
