Frazetta’s Flashman

Some background for the unfamiliar:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashman

One of the few characters in popular literature that could be described as “full of FAIL and AWESOME”. Frazetta captures him perfectly here, IMHO.

    1. So Flashman is some kind of calvaryman who runs around capturing ladies? (doesn’t have enough time to read up on the link)

    2. He’s a sort of feckless soldier-of-fortune who somehow manages to fail his way upward in various adventures running through many books. I’m not sure if this painting describes a particular scene in a book or if it’s just Frazetta using any excuse to throw a great piece of T&A into an illustration gig.

    3. Pillaging and plundering are part of being a soldier too. So can’t blame him.

    5. @Dreth: …while running through a battle? Avoiding spears, swords, gunfire & explosions? Why the fuck not?

      Don’t second-guess Frazetta’s visuals, man –unless you WANT to look foolish.

    7. I just started reading these books recently, and by God is it awesome. Apparently George MacDonald Fraser (author) said at one point that he pictured Daniel Day-Lewis portraying ol’ Flashy. One word: Awesome.

    8. Flashman is G.M. Fraser’s original anti-hero, and I’ve been his fan for over 20 years. A pirate, gambler, seducer of innocents, and coward who was knighted for heroism. He won his encounters with treachery and lechery.

      Read any of his stories and learn the true definition of ROFLMAO. Srsly.

    10. @Sarcastastic: According to the wiki article, GMF’s ideal “star” would have been Errol Flynn.

    12. I was going to say he sounds exactly like the WH40K character Caiaphas Cain, then I read that Cain is partially inspired by this dude.
