A montage of women’s heads by Frank Frazetta, reveals the pattern of his idealized type.
They all tend to have long hair, bare shoulders, a rounded forehead, thin eyebrows, big cheekbones, a small nose, shadows around the eyes, eyeliner extended outward, up-slanted eye corners, and a pout.
If they’re feeling dressy, they have a choice of hammered bronze headdresses.
The result: A strong-but-vulnerable, exotic, baby-doll type.
Images montage by Walt Morton. Thanks, Walt!
Is the Frazetta female based on his wife Ellie? (see post on “Illustration Art” blog).
