Frank Frazetta art prints reproduce gracefully the original works of the master. He was a comic book artists, drawing mostly with oil painting, but he also worked with watercolor, ink, and pencil alone. That is why his art deserves a part of the original oil paint to mimic the warm feel of his designs.
He is the most iconic artist for the fantasy and science-fiction, recognized for the thousands of illustration he made. His specialty in the genre came from his childhood and never left, making him the artist who defined the fantasy art for the 20th century.
In his painting, Frazetta carried forward the traditions of the great swashbuckling adventure illustrators like Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth and Frank Schoonover, bringing them into the modern era with a touch more menace, implied violence and sex. In the process Frazetta became tremendously influential on a new generation of adventure fantasy artists, many of whom are working today.
Frazetta’s figures, beasts and monsters seem to inhabit a world in which gravity exerts more force than normal; and that great sensation of weight translated into a suggestion of immense power, either heroic or menacing.
Frazetta’s color palette, again with a direct lineage to Pyle and Wyeth, was often dark and moody, punctuated by bright passages for emphasis. His use of theatrical lighting for dramatic effect gave his compositions an immediate visceral impact.
Frank Frazetta used to oil paint most of his drawings. If you are here it is because you know the difference between a simple print on canvas and an oil painting reproduction. A print on canvas is only a photo printed on canvas instead of paper; it can be really nice, but it lacks the warmth of a real oil painting, that add matter to the art and a certain thickness to it. I am not saying that a simple print cannot be nice, but for a few bucks, you can have the next best thing.

What we do, mostly, is we keep the background as a print, and paint the subjects (Tarzan, The death Dealer, etc.) so it kind of goes out of the canvas; not unlike a 3D print would be. We are a painting reproduction studio as well, so our artist are perfectly capable to do a reproduction of any details of any image.
Frank Frazetta, (Frank Frazzetta), American artist (born Feb. 9, 1928, Brooklyn, N.Y.—died May 10, 2010, Fort Myers, Fla.), produced images of grim warriors, scantily clad maidens, and otherworldly landscapes that graced the covers of countless science-fiction and fantasy novels. He spent the 1940s and ’50s illustrating comic strips—including Al Capp’s Li’l Abner—but his career took off in 1966 when he painted the cover of the fantasy anthology Conan the Adventurer. Frazetta’s covers sparked a resurgence in interest in Robert E. Howard’s muscle-bound barbarian, and subsequent Conan books sold well, at least partially based on their cover art. Frazetta’s work also appeared on the covers of books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, albums for an assortment of heavy metal bands, and posters for films, including What’s New Pussycat (1965) and Dance of the Vampires (1967).
