Wow! Gemma is very skilled. In her more recent work (I presume), I see touches of Frazetta, Jeff Jones, and even Terry Moore.

But, I wonder, what is THE Gemma Style?

Thanks for sharing, Carson & Dave!

Yes, Jeff Jone's "I'm Age" strips always came to mind. Guido Crepax a little bit as well.

Gemma wasn't even aware of Jones, maybe Frazetta?, so I suppose that probably just is THE Gemma Style? The influences I was made aware of are J.H. Williams III, Jock, and Alphonse Mucha.

Ah, yes! Crepax. One of the best cartoonists of nudes (not nude cartoonists, which I almost wrote), ever.

I don't think I'm aware of the last three.

But, what about Moore? I have his book, "How to Draw Women", and I think I see his influence in some of Gemma's work.

Not sure. I have never heard her mention him.

Am I the only one who hasn't been able to get the video to load?

Don't even see the usual screen shot...
