Amazing... just type your name in google and see what you can find! I had forgotten this Archangel card.
I gave the original for free to a friend and just forgot it, and now, it comes again.
Bad resolution, good memories.
(Just found the original pencils and added to the entry.)

Hello, my friends.
I have just seen the documentary on Frazetta, Painting with Fire, and only I can say that the great Frank continues being an inspiration for everyone that wants to draw great art. I have looked for a few drawings that I did after reading the book Icon, long time ago, and I've selected this one that I'm posting now. Certainly I do not want to imitate Frazetta --you know: Frazetta is inimitable. Everything he does, he does terribly well--. I only try to show the very much that his work can inspire and guide to the ones that want to achieve artwork for his own pleasure.

Some years ago, a group of comic-book fans -which I belong to-, offer an honoring to the great Spanish draftsman Manfred Sommer. For the occasion I drew a great poster with the figure of one of his more famous characters: Frank Cappa. (In fact, I drew the upper figure, while my friend Mariano Saura drew the lower part). I also designed and realized a sculpture of Cappa (a golden Cappa!), which was very celebrated. That was my first sculpture. Later I realized other about both characters of Rogues! Also I have photos of these. If I locate them, I'll post them for you to see.
