This wasn't meant to be a direct tribute to anyone, but certainly , and I think it's obvious, Frank Frazetta's work is and probably always will be a HUGE influence. When I was a kid, my late brother gave me a few of his art books, three of which were Frazetta compilations. No fantasy artist has ever had the sense of motion and chaos that Frank harnessed in his work. Certainly there are many a copycat and I myself can only hope to be a poor imitation at best.
Rest in peace, Frank, and thank you for shaping many of our futures.
