ED BEARD JR
"Treasure by the shore"
I can only begin to capture the awesomeness of this man. Bear witness to his extreme artistic talent here:
Ed is a seasoned professional illustrator and fine artist. He is known primarily for his fantasy artwork. His name is well known and respected in the fantasy genre and beyond. His technique is brilliant. Acrylic paint combined with some airbrush work to compensate for acrylic paint's shortcomings. The finished products are mind blowing images unlike anything you've ever seen. Completely made by hand start to finish. I get endless inspiration from his art. It's so well crafted it's hard to believe.
His artistic skill is eclipsed only by his enormous character, however. As an advocate for artist rights, he immediately calls out any infringements and takes action. I would never want to cross this man!
So I salute you, Ed Beard Jr. You influence me. Thank you.
