Here is what Bob says about this piece, from 2005:

Quote:
Once in a while, I like to do something that keeps the organic inking style that Barry Windsor-Smith taught me in form. In a moment of inspiration, I went back to the beginning and did this version of the very first X-O Manowar cover, utilizing that organic rendering technique.

Thanks, man. i can never afford BWS art, so this is the closest I can get to it looking like BWS.

The price was pretty amazing too, $250.

That is beautiful Ed and a great price!

I'm sure it will look great framed up in the gallery in one of your shops!

I wish I wasn't so far away so I could see it in person.
