    This might be a stretch because I know i'm one of the few nerdy guys out there that like's this stuff, but Frank Frazetta, the famous painter of Fantasy works, including renditions of Conan The Barbarian, has passed away.

    This dude defined fantasy painting, here are some examples to show you, like the famous Conan The Barbarian Cover, the Death Dealer, and so forth.

    This is the cover to the movie Fire and Ice, an animated movie by Ralph Bakshi based on the artwork of Frazetta. Good stuff if you like cult classic Sword and sorcery movies.
