Frazetta’s Masterpieces: Death Dealer Kickstarter
Von Kabuki läuft derzeit ein Kickstarter zum berühmten Death Dealer von Frank Frazetta.
Death Dealer is a 1973 fantasy painting by American legend Frank Frazetta.
It depicts a menacing armour-clad warrior wearing a horned helmet, whose facial features are obscured by shadow, atop a horse, holding a bloody axe and shield. It is also the most iconic character in all the history of fantasy and an image that has inspired many of today’s great fantasy artists.
I was influenced by this drawing from when I was a child. I was born in ’76, so when I was a kid Frank Frazetta was producing these great pieces of Art.
Over the years I’ve collected posters and prints until I was old enough to afford a statue. It was during the first years of 00’ when I bought the awesome ‘Bowen’ 1/6 statue and from that day, I decided I wanted to make my version.
Because I’m obsessed by quality and attention to detail, I thought it was the right time to accept the challenge I set myself and manufacture a Kabuki Studio Death Dealer. Not the usual ‘unlicensed garage kit’ but an official model. So, I contacted ‘Frazetta Girls’, introducing my project.
I found from the very beginning that that are an exceptional company.
Not only very professional, but also they have a great enthusiasm to Spread the works of Frank Frazetta, but also to maintain its integrity, so I would like to very much thank Holly and Sara for this great opportunity!
But this challenge was not mine alone…indeed, I needed the right artist for the master sculpture, so I thought to call on our most ‘veteran’ member of the team, Jaroslaw Smolka, who has worked with me since 2007. Together we spent a great many working hours working hard to do justice to the original artwork.
Now, you will decide if we did a good job or not!
Das Modell gibt es in verschiedenen Farbvarianten und Maßstäben, wobei die Bebilderung der Pledges leider etwas unübersichtlich ist. Wir empfehlen deshalb die Beschreibungen am Seitenrand zu beachten.
Die Kampagne ist bereits erfolgreich finanziert und läuft noch 20 tage.
