FRANK FRAZETTA 1949 Diamonds and Pebbles4512

Collector BLBcomics private msg quote post Address this user
In the late 1940s Frank Frazetta was channeling Hal Foster. Happy Fairy Tales Presents Diamonds and Pebbles appears in Happy Comics #33 1949 - and remains one of my all time faves.

Thanks for posting this!

I know somebody that would say "This is kind of like my life!" in a half-joking way. And while I prefer his 1967-1968 works on Conan, which itself has me miss the days that Marvel published comics of said character, I cannot do any less than add more respect to what I have for him. Especially when he did an excellent job replicating Hal Foster's art style.

That, and I think it has me respect Greg Capullo as an artist. Because I was not as much of a fan during his Spawn days, but really feel that his Batman (Vol. 2) run is worth collecting. Just because his Frank Miller-like art style really gave the series that feel I wanted in a Batman comic series.

Hal Foster was an absolute magician with pencil and ink.

The work he produced in the early 20th to mid century was monumental, head and shoulders over what his contemporaries produced, breathtaking in its realism and attention to detail.

It is difficult to come up with superlatives to describe the exquisite beauty that is Hal Foster's work.




Look at the detail in this single panel.

Just breathtaking. Every panel, a visual banquet, a feast for the eyes.

And at a time when Kane could barely get anatomy correct.

This is a thread about Frazetta channeling Foster as a young man learning his craft.

Fair enough

What about Alex Raymond?

Seems to me Frazetta was more in to Hal Foster (and Al Capp) than Alex Raymond. Have yet to track direct swipes from Raymond's work though no doubt exists Fritz would have been absorbing same.

I mean !!!!!!’. To break a few things down. Look how the hair clumps to show its wet. Look at the reflection of the bear not even mentioning the detail in it. Garments strewn over a rock. I found an old Prince Valiant recently and have become obsessed with Hals work since.
