Northern Exposure

Frazetta is a huge influence on how I paint Fantasy models.  My Aunt who was an amazing oil painter, collected fantasy art books and Calandars en masse, the latter of which many are hanging in my paint room today. They often solve an artistic block with a quick glance over my shoulder. "Oh, right, that's the color I was looking for."

So when this client showed me this list of big gribbly monsters and told me to go wild, that is what I did, drawing in all I have learned about that vibrant style and my practice from past armies such as the Adepticon Fantasy throne army.  Add in some hand made over-the-top bases, and you've got a force straight off a fantasy epic book cover.
