Death Dealer

Wanted to pay my respects to the passing of one of the undisputed artistic powerhouses of our time, Frank Frazetta. A massive influence on myself + most comicbook artists I know, the man was a legend.
My favourite pieces of his were the Death Dealer series, especially the one depicting DD on his steed.

That's lovely, I'd love to see it inked and coloured up.

LEN said...

really nice piece- love you you toned down the beefcake.

Moondog said...

Cheers lads, yeah I'll ink it up alright Thomps, just didn't have the time today.

Stephen Thompson said...

Ink it for next week, colour it for the week after. Bada-bing-bada-boom.

Moondog said...

Thus acquiring three weeks worth of posts from a single drawing? Would I pull such a cheap stunt?
You bet I would.

Fran Johnston said...

That's class moondog. Think this is one of my favourites you've done.

Brilliant stuff, Mooney. Reminds me of one the characters from that board game Hero Quest I had when I was small.

Moondog said...

Quit calling me that Franner you bastard. Glad you like the pic.

Liam; had the same game myself, along with the companion Space Crusade.
Loved 'em both. It was like dipping your toes into hardcore nerd-dom without having to fully commit.
The withdrawal method, if you like.

You know when your Google ID is 'Moondog' you're kind of undermining your case for not being called 'Moondog'.

Moondog said...

Yep.
I'm a riddle wrapped in an enigma.

Declan Shalvey said...

Yer wrapped in somethin' alright.

Great piece MOONDOG, i'd love to see a finished version of this.
