An extrodinary artist.He influenced pretty much everyone who came after him.His use of form and color brought a very Rembrandtian feel to fantasy art-he made it mysterious and magnificent rather than just sort of pulp-tawdry that it had been before him.I remember the first Vampirella cover and of course the Conan pictures.
I just saw this on MSN this morning. Sad news. His art was always great. He set the bar high and inspired many (if not all) fantasy artists who came after him. He will be missed but we still have his art to remind us of his great talent.
I just saw this. So sorry to hear about one of the most inflencial artist of the moder era. I ad the entire Vamperilla series he did covers for. The Conan and Tarzan series were also worth collecting. A huge body of excellent work. We morn you.
