Frank Frazetta had a huge impact on me when I was an impressionable young lad growing up in the 70s.

Here's a great gallery of his work that just I found.

I also liked Boris Vallejo (for obvious reasons!) but I find now that the diffuse quality of Frazetta's work is much more evocative.

hi Dave,
Same here. I first saw Frazetta and Boris's work in the late 1970's when i started attending art college. They were the two main fantasy artists for me. Frazetta's art always had a classical timeless quality.

I also liked Chris Achilleos who had a popular art book at the time called Beauty and the Beast.
thanks for the great link.
