|The man I'm apologizing to.|
I made a post years ago where I called Ed Benes a hack. I had some people tell me it was too mean, but I stood by it. I suppose the biggest element was how I thought the fact he would do commissions of popular characters in sexual poses to be tacky. The thing is though, I was mulling over one day if maybe I was too mean, and if maybe, just maybe, Ed Benes actually wasn't that bad an artist?
Ed Benes might make a chunk of change doing sexy drawings for folk of popular characters, but why should I hate on him for that? The fact that his art actually doesn't look too shabby--be it G-rated or R-rated--is the important factor; I mean, if it looks good, it looks good.
