Connections: Frazetta and Meseldžija

The Bud’s Art Books catalogue arrived today, and as I was flipping idly through the pages, I noticed something that seemed familiar in a tiny thumbnail image of a book cover (issue 1010F, page 67, item E). Here, take a look at the much larger images below, and see if you notice it, too.

Is this mere happenstance? Maybe, maybe not. You decide.

  1. Well, maybe they use the same photography 🙂
    Well, as the horse is better in Meseldžija’s painting, it’s hard to decide :-)) (look at the two legs behind: they are much more dynamic than in Frazetta’s painting) (and sorry for my bad english).


  2. After I posted the comparison, I visited the artist’s Web site. Turns out, he’s a huge fan of Frazetta. 🙂


  3. BTW, Li-An, I’m pretty sure “the mad king” in Frazetta’s illustration isn’t riding a horse. Instead, what he’s actually riding into battle is a horson. Don’t know what a “horson” is? It’s the offspring of a male horse and a female bison. Very rare. And sterile, of course. 😉


  4. Has his father’s face and his mother’s two legs behind… that’s why he gallops like a girl… 😉
