Shelves: my-favs I love fantasy art it one of my favorite mediums a few friends have scene my drawings I aspire to draw half as brilliantly and confidently as Frank his drawings are simply stunning. They stand alone fine but you should get all three because they cover most of his best paintings and drawings. The quotes from Frazetta are quite interesting, some that particularly interested me were his thoughts on the way he draws and paints women.
He addresses the frequent complaint that all his women look the same, saying that he was just never satisfied with his attempts at different looking women. I wish he had tried to diversify like this more often. He also says that in real life he prefers slightly more slender women but is unable to paint them in a way that "reads" right. Controversially, Frazetta kept working on some of his best loved paintings and many fans including myself do not consider most of the later layers of paint to be improvements, although there were some I liked better.
In many cases, two different versions of the same painting are shown here, so you can decide for yourself. I find many of his compositions too simple or too similar and I would have appreciated a little more real criticism. He was only a full time comic artist for a relatively short period of his life but he never drifted that far away so it makes sense that his art books have mostly been found in comic shops and his work written about by comics people.
And like some other major comic artists, he had an enormous influence on the way fantasy looks today. These books really deserve a reprint preferably combined into one huge book because they are the best printed way to experience Frazetta so far.
