Fred Pfeiffer : Star Rider - Spotlight

This cover shows up as well in internet searches
because of the Ron Hill website. Ron has great taste
and when you search for Fred Pfeiffer his site always
comes up. He spotlights a lot of great cover artists there
including Fred.  Look in our Pfeiffer Pfriends section for
Ron's Website.

This design very definitely shows the influence of Frank Frazetta's THE MOONMAID, a hot-selling fantasy and science fiction poster in the early 70's. The moment I looked at this piece, it instantly reminded me of The Moonmaid, even though it is clearly not a copy attempt, just done in the same vein as the Frazetta picture...a sort of recapture of the atmosphere and coloring. A really good piece of Pfeiffer art. I love it!

I think this spotlight picture make the design look better. Again, as usual in a Pfeiffer illustration, there is quite a bit to look at and study.

Check out the blue ribbon tied to the horse's tail.
