If you read any speculative fiction at all, chances are you've read a book with a cover by Michael Whelan. He's been at it for over thirty years at this point, and his author list reads like a who's who of science fiction and fantasy, including the original covers for Anne McCaffrey's Pern Chronicles. He's won every major award for artists in his field that I've ever heard of, including this past year's Chesley Award from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists (ASFA) for his cover of Brandon Sanderson's The Way of Kings, fifteen Hugos, and three World Fantasy Awards. And the list goes on from there. There literally may not be a more influential artist in his or dead. Check out his website, and/or his art books and galleries for some more incredible eye candy.
