This is more than Museum Quality, Alex! I guess, the happy owner must get a heart attack when he see this beautiful "Repaint" of a very well done sculpture. And to bring it up to a point: The Frazettas must be proud of you and your work, you are a true Master (like Phil Bracco said in his own words, I know him from way back the beginning of the 80ties as I have first seen his work in some Modeling Magazines). And I hope for myself to see LOTS MORE OF YOUR WORK, because it leaves me inspired for ages! Hats off!!

Frank


Dear Frank.

I may be doing the nude version of this same piece soon.

I also wanted to mention to you the vice president of IWATA airbrush Gary Glass will have me on their website. He asked me to personally define a new category for may work as he felt it did not belong anymore in the hobby industry.

Stay tuned my friend we have a little history to make or should I say paint.
Thanks Frank.

Dear friends,

In this portrait, or should I say study, of this iconic figure by Frank Frazetta that has captured the imagination of generations and many more to come, I felt a creative responsibility not only to Darrin the owner of this piece but to my fans and painters in the field of figure painting to bring Clayburn Moore's great sculpt to life in my style of painting. I wanted to set the bar as high as I could in my beloved field of miniatures painting, to inspire other great artist to surpass my work and break new barriers in this art from.

For me, it means the world to have the master "Frank Frazetta "look at my work and smile.

Thank you.

Alex (Trismegistus)

About the work:

In this close up I changed the eyes three times I have a few rules when it comes to eyes. First they must not be cross eyed; secondly, the eyes must have a point of focus; and thirdly,they must also catch the ambient light even in shadows. I also want the eyes to capture the character of the face, which throws it over the top in my opinion .


Bild
Conan Close-up, note the intensity of the stare!

Bild
Note the skin tones (strong yet soft ); its glow and how it catches light.
Note the green effect and how it adds an interesting element to the skin tones.
Notice that the accessories are all present, but the appearance of the body still maintains a relaxed visual look.

Bild

At this stage, we must now start to consider the visual interrelationship that the figures have on the composition and how to balance then visually.Notice the important role light plays in the composition.
Note the ground work and sword are still not completed.

Alex, the news around Iwata are great! Please let me know the progress and when I can see and feel something on theirs site done by you. As I said before, there is a lot of difference between your work and the work "normally" done on painting figures.

I see it the way that you are able to transform 2D into 3D so easily that it takes the breathe away. You not only paint a figure, you build it new with every layer of paint, bearing the original art absolute in mind and "copy" it on the figure. Not only the exact colour composition, you transform the brushstrokes of the Masterpainter to the figure to construct a 3D copy of the original painting. This is what makes art for me, and you are a real Master!

Frank

-Hi Everyone,

It’ like Frank and Darrin said…..it’s a full painting only in 3D.

About the work:

Almost done…I just have to go over some tone work on the base, the back of the base and finally pastel it. Note how gently the female’s legs fade out and blend with the background. I had to tone down the hand resting on the sword.

That’s why I believe Mr. Frazetta ran the green down to the fingers tips on two fingers and darkened the wrist ban.
Another interesting point is that I did not use any clear red on the sword for blood. I felt, besides it not being painterly, Mr. Frazetta wouldn’t have used it either. I just used red and brown.

The ribs were a challenge just to keep them from braking. They were very delicate even to paint.
I wood grained the ax handle for effect. I drilled a hole in the ax handle and tied a string like in the original painting. I then pinned the handle back in place on the ax.

On the skull, I free hand a few more thin cracks for effect as well.

Please enjoy, and if you have any question on how some things were don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

Hi All,

About the work:

I gently pastel the ground area, this time around I did use Tamiya clear red for blood effect.
I spattered it on very lightly, I didn’t want to overdo it, I also added blood to the hands.

The front part of this piece is done I just have to paint a helmet and a sword handle on the back and spattered with blood.

Then I'll finally get to sign it for Darrin!

Alex (Trismegistus)

P.S. I will post a back view as soon as I’m done thanks.
