The King Maker by Scotty Phillips

Here is another Scotty Phillips painting of a Fred Pfeiffer Doc Savage cover.

This one is a larger size canvas at 2' x 3'.

The other Scotty paintings I have are 18" x 24".

Enjoy the Magic Man!

Excellent! Another great cover re-creation! Congratulations Scotty. Extremely well done.

Yesterday, on I looked at numerous covers from the old Doc Savage pulp magazines, and I noticed of course that Doc's appearance on those early covers was quite different from what it was on the Bama and Pfeiffer covers.

I also got the impression from looking at the old covers that the Doc Savage stories did not really venture too deeply into science fiction (robots, aliens, etc...) but rather seemed to focus on the kind of adventures that were more realistic or believable.

Hope to see more of Scotty's work shown here. It's a great tribute to Fred.

Thanks! Very much, Rob for your kindness. I really do love Fred's art. I so wish I could meet him and talk with him. I just know we would be fast friends.
Doc takes on those larger than life villains that want to conquer the world. I enjoy the stories. They are fun. For the most part Doc and his aides are a believable group and the plots of the stories move at a rapid pace. The books are not too long and the action is big. I think you might enjoy them if you like that sort of escapism.
As we post more of the Doc/Pfeiffer covers I will make it a point to share the Re-creations of Fred's covers I have done. I enjoy attempting them and going where Fred went. He was amazing and had such enormous talent that I can only learn more about my own art by studying his. Thanks again for all you contribute to the Pfeiffer Pfiles I can't tell you how much it means to me that you are here.
