    Frank Frazetta - Woman With a Scythe Study Sketch Original Art (Undated). This small pencil and watercolor study for Frazetta's well-known "Woman With a Scythe" painting features a big change over the finished piece. On this version, the woman's face has been replaced by a skull, turning her into Lady Death! This is an interesting concept, and this 4" x 5" study (on a 6" x 8" piece of paper) is pretty detailed and frightening. It's a grim yet beautiful image, as only Frank Frazetta could produce them. Even Frazetta had his doubts about the death's head; in the margin below, he wrote "perhaps semi skull," and penciled another sketch of the head. The piece is signed with a single "F" in the lower right corner. While the paper shows some wrinkles due to the use of watercolors, the image itself is in Excellent condition, and would frame beautifully.
