Most, not all of these I've seen in person , and seeing them in person makes all the difference, believe me:
Cat Girl (If you're a guy, and straight, you can get a buzz looking at this painting in person. Stallone wanted to buy it from what I understand, and didn't come up with the magic number:
ManApe (Haven't seen this one in person-buhht it doesn't matter):
Neanderthal (What's wild about this one is-when you see it in person, you realize that it's done on a raw piece of pressboard)
The Mammoth (My word, you are not ready for how impressive this image is in person, the only image to beat it out is the following...)
Death Dealer (It's famous, not for nothing.What makes it great is it's selectivity-the rawness on the ground around the hooves of the horse, contrasted with the work on the shield and the chain mail. And it's small too! If you haven't see it in person, find a way...)
Swamp Demon (I don't think this one was at the Alexander Gallery where I saw Frazetta's stuff, but it's one of my very favorite Frazetta images apart from Cat Girl.
Finally, I really love his poster for the movie "The Night They Raided Minskys"-I love it when he does these movie caricacture things, I think he's one of the best caricaturists ever. And besides, the dance hall girls on the top of the marque in this painting are so wonderful...
I even bought the soundtrack album for this movie to get a large copy of this image:
"What's New Pussycat?"
"After the Fox:
"The Busy Body"
and many others that I couldn't find examples of - I can try taking some snaps from my collection at some point.
Still, I like threads like this. Frazetta's work is so burned into my brain, I can hardly "see" it any more. But a question like this gives me a chance to dig out all the Frazetta stuff and try to look at it with fresh eyes.
Then again...If someone said I could have a Frazetta painting for my own...but I could only pick one....
It would be The Destroyer.
Darn...forget it...I can't choose.
Here's another good one I forgot-Moon Maid:
