Every once in while while sketching I seem to drag out the old Frazetta wannabee chops and something like this appears. Then I realize how nobody can touch that guy when it comes to this sort of thing and even those who manage to ape the surface details fall so far short of the real deal. Artists often learn by copying those they like but maybe to their ultimate detriment if they don't move beyond the source and find their own way. But I may take this piece further and do a progress report just because, God help me it IS a fun artistic place to play once in a while. It's not a direct swipe of anything at least.
