This selection of art shows Frazetta's talent with oil painting, watercolor, pen and ink, and pencil. His skill is incredible. But most amazing of all, he never used reference. He didn't need it. You may see more at http://frankfrazetta.net.

"Artist on Tap"-4/20/14
There is an immensely talented artist who is sometimes known as the Grandmaster of Fantastic Art. People react to his images on a visceral, emotional level. His art vibrates with tension and movement, and even his still figures seem ready to spring to life. He creates images of the fantastic but they are always grounded in realism. He was a modern-day classical artist working in an era when artists of this sort could no longer be found. There is nobody quite like him, though he's probably the most influential artist of the past half-century.
