    Description

    Simon Bisley - Heavy Metal Cover Original Art (1995). Production notes on the back of this exuberant painting indicate it was used as a cover for an issue of Heavy Metal. Simon Bisley pays grand homage to Frank Frazetta's 1966 Lancer cover for Conan the Adventurer with his own version of a brawny, brawling, sword-wielding barbarian being fawned over by pulchritudinous beauties. Contrasting warm and cool hues create a tactile three-dimensional modeling in the sinewy forms of this fantasy icon. The image area is 11" x 17", and the art is in Excellent condition.
