BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (1978) Prelim Art by Frazetta

Although I rarely draw anymore - and I never could paint worth a damn - I attended art school back in the dim history of my youth, so I'm always appreciative of good illustration and fascinated by artists' processes. This cool find is legendary fantasy illustrator Frank Frazetta's color rough for his fourth Battlestar Galactica painting, which was used by Universal and ABC to advertise the "War Of the Gods" two-part epic episode.

I've re-posted the finished painting and the ultimate TV Guide advertisement below for comparison.

  1. Wow. Love seeing Frazetta's roughs! Too bad TV guide didn't print in color back then.
