Homage to Frazetta!
Oh, I love Frank Frazetta's artwork. I thought when I came up with this image that I would end up swiping a Frazetta piece whole hog...but as it turns out I was conglomerating a bunch of Fritz paintings in with a bunch of his black and white stuff...in the end I used the chest harness thing from a John Carter of Mars painting (I think) and the delicate, beautiful, ornamental designy-ness of his space clothing. Plus the pose is totally cliche Spaceman/Barbarian with slave-girl/alien chick. And then I inked it with a ham fist and erased any chance that Frazetta comparisons would be drawn!
