Frazetta Color #2


A dainty little watercolored nude by Frazetta. The drawing is made special by that flowing black shock of sensual hair that appears to have a life of its own. The body is flesh color with tiny additions of green to give it life. Sadly, unless your computer monitor is properly calibrated, then you will not be seeing the colors correctly. I have added a small grayscale chart for a test. You should be able to differentiate color variations in the A/B/C and X/Y/Z patches on the strip. If you cannot, then your monitor needs calibration. It is either too bright or too dark or your gamma settings are askew. Calibration is a nightmare world, but it is essential for proper viewing and printing.

  1. I don't think my computer monitor is properly calibrated, I wish it was because I love this drawing. You are right, the sensual hair does appear to have a life of its own. Thanks so much for sharing!
