Unfortunately (or fortunately) I was HEAVILY influenced by Frazetta on the mermaid (heavily). Just trying out some new things.
Amen to that, Scott.
Thanks Varian. And yes, the mermaid is a giant. So good of you to notice.
My only nit with the mermaid is that she seems too large (unless there are giant mermaids, too), but her style nicely fits in with the rest of the action. I must admit feeling grateful these guys don't play ball in my neighborhood!
I agree with James, I see the influence, but it's not so obvious as to distract one from the overall piece. Frazetta is Godfather to a lot of fantasy artists, we all owe him for his influence.
Thanks James. I was a bit worried about the mermaid, but then again, who in fantasy illustration isn't influence at least a little by Frazetta?
Lovely figure work, I don't think the Fraz influence has hurt you any, Steve! she sure makes a lovely distraction from the action! your movement on all your figures is beautifully done and the vivid colours really shine! marvellous!
