Powerful Fantasy Portraits

Eric Braddock

An elfin man with glowing blue eyes and a runed cloak skulks away. A young man with wild red hair stares intently, surrounded by green vines. A cautious hobbit clutches as a necklace while weilding a small blade.

The only true distinction between accounts of historical events and the great works of literature are that scholars believe the former are truthful, where the latter are merely stories. After witnessing the works of Eric Braddock, you may come to understand that the true history of civilization lies somewhere between fact and fable.

With characters and concepts that live both in the Middle Ages and Middle Earth, Mr. Braddock’s vibrant, moody characters are at once both powerfully epic and fallibly human. Here, warriors from many epochs marshal their courage and ply their trade with cunning and ferocity. Even his learned sorcerers seem particularly well-versed in the arts of combat, with magical spells more than a match for any man-made weapon.

Vibrant colors and lush landscapes are in clear conflict with the somber, even dire circumstances faced by these mighty figures. It’s almost as if these environments are directly influenced by the inner strength that radiates from Eric’s characters. When you visit his gallery, you’ll most certainly feel the power for yourself.
