    This is great, but it lacks charisma.

    This is a fantastic painting – but pitching this piece as having anything
    to do with Frazetta (apart from women and cats), is both inaccurate and
    diminishes the appreciation of John’s work. There is no comparison..this is
    a genuine and unique Stanko piece. Bit of a ballsy and dishonest sales
    pitch to be honest.

    you do an underlying layer of intense colors, but what opacity do you use
    for the main crush you are using??
    please reply D:

    I like these video’s, but I’d recommend speeding up the parts you’re not
    talking over even more. It gets pretty long otherwise. Great job, though :)

    hello fellow artists
    this was awesome, but i’m a beginner in corel painter.
    What brush did this master painter use for this masterpiece?

    Artistic talent you have, but FAR from Frank Frazetta. His art was
    visceral. You needed to see the painting in person. He was all about the
    gobs of paint, and the application and energy. I know digital art is the
    medium of the day, but it will not replace the artist’s medium of oil on
    I’d love to see your talents on canvas, instead of the highly controlled
    environment of the computer screen.

    Re: Blocking the colours. I had a chance to speak with Stanko about this
    recently, and from what I understand, there is a subtle way that the paint
    he lays over the top picks up the bright colours from the blocking done in
    the beginning. He mentions this early on in the video. The reason he blocks
    the colours goes back to classic oil painting, the artist noticed subtle
    differences in men’s and women’s faces (hints of blues, magentas, etc).
    When he uses the “pick up underlying colours” setting, these nuances come
    through in the over coat layers of paint as well, very subtly. It saves
    from having to continually change the brush colour to adjust to the
    different tones in the skin.

    Great mag,just to expensive.

    Wow this is cool! I always liked the way Boris Vallejo’s paintings looked
    and when I saw this tutorial it gave me something to strive for. I’m still
    not sure how to accomplish this technique but I’m going to experiment like
    you suggested until I get a more intuitive grasp of how colors interact.
    I’m not familiar with the painter tools (the complexity of the software
    overwhelmed me initially) so I’m probably going to need to look up
    tutorials for that but this video has inspired me so thanks a lot!

    Sorry, but I didn’t understand about “blocking colors” so bright and
    saturated. Why do you need to do this background painting if you overpaint
    in at all with a new colors?

  14. Scott Austin says:

    Way to use Frazettas name to get clicks… but this is NOT anything like
    Frazetta. It’s very well done, but it’s definitely nothing like Frazetta’s

    if you want to learn to draw like Frazetta especially with a tablet then
    the best and most easy way its just to copy some of his paintings, thats it
    thats all, everything else is theory

    1234Colt is correct. This has nothing to do with the style of Frank
    Frazetta’s art style or techniques. The majority of Frazetta’s paintings
    were painted in oils on masonite panels in one or two nights. He used broad
    strokes and bold colors for his initial lay in and then used finer brushes
    and contrasting colors for details and highlights. This video features a
    very good artist with great techniques concerning Corel Painter but the
    title is wholly misleading and FALSE!
    I say change the title to reflect the actual subject or take it down and
    don’t use Frazetta’s name because this has NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM!

  21. Peter Parker says:

    I dont care if he used reference its whether you can produce work like this
    with or without, If you cant do this from your head, it means you dont
    remember what the arm looks like or what the skin tone looks like properly,
    then use ref. Best to start somewhere rather than guessing! 

  22. Kristian L says:

    “PUREREF” is an awsome SOFTWARE for keeping ur REFERENCES while painting
    ect, just a shout out for those intrested!! :D

  23. 1234Colt says:

    this whole style hasnt anything to do with frazetta. The lighting! omg the
    lighting! Sorry, this is good art, no question, but its nothing frazetta.
