Fire and Ice

This week's theme was a challenge for me considering I wasn't completely familiar with "Fire and Ice" by Frank Frazetta. That and I typically don't do full bodies. Now in my second week in a row I've done 3/4 bodies. Kudos to this blog I guess because it's getting me out of my comfort zone of only painting faces. I had a great time looking at a lot of Frank Frazetta work for inspiration. The pose I used is based off of John Cassaday's cover art for Astonishing X-men #6. As always my picture is hand painted with sumi ink.
