Fantasy Art by Frank Frazetta

Updated on May 23, 2018

Fantasy art played a big part in my upbringing as a youngster, with my room plastered with fantasy art wallpaper and posters of all kinds of Gothic art, and a full collection of fantasy art books.

And now that the web offers one to download digital fantasy art I now have hundreds of digital pics on my computer. But I have to say that none stood out more for me than the master of fantasy art himself Frank Frazetta.

I could stare at his works of art for ages on end, the picture itself would take me away to that particular point in time, and if I stared long enough it's as if the figure was about to literally jump right out of the paper. But what really impressed me the most was the mediums and blend of colors that Frank used throughout his works to make them look so real.

As he seemed to have a way of making his works jump right out of the canvas as this one shows below. The way colors were used in his work was a complicated thing for me to understand but as I got to know the stages that an artist has to go through before the finished and final artwork was complete made it a bit clearer for me.

As this picture below shows how Frank used a single color (blue) to archive such amazing results at yet kept the realism of the painting alive. This is another one of my favorite paintings of, what looks like a Viking being pulled along on a sled by Polar bears what a majestic site indeed.

Makes one wonder where this Viking comes from, and sort of paints a picture of a warrior that's been through many battles and is well respected by many. I am sure you may come up with your own description of this painting.



Makes me wonder what is in the mind of this man when he creates such paintings, i guess we all have pictures in our minds that we wish we could put to paper and Frank Frazetta does it with such ease.

This next one makes the mind wonder if this character is going to escape the grip of this mighty snake, he is holding a blade so I think he may have a good chance to free himself.

Although the way that snake has him wrapped looks like if he doesn't do something soon, that beast of a snake is going to crush the life right out of him.

I suppose you could say that Frank had a bit of an obsession with dark fantasy art, Vikings, and creatures of the unknown, this next one shows a little feminine side about the man.

But IT still it looks like Frank couldn't keep away from adding a little beast action to the painting as well, ill let you come up with your own thoughts on this one.

Once again Frank has managed to capture the thoughts of the onlooker through painting fantasy art women and creatures.

Although to me it looks like either that creature is about to devour her, or she has the mighty beast tamed and it is willing to do anything she commands a good example of Beauty and the Beast.

There is a whole range of Frank's fantasy art prints and paintings at their there Main Site. Also, you have the option to purchase full-size fantasy art posters and memorabilia.

I myself have a 5 Book volume of his works that I have had for years and still, as an adult, I am still looking at these paintings through the eyes of a young boy.

      A stunning artist who, I'm sure, could not have imagined how much impact and influence he had over people he would never even know.
