The world has some incredibly talented. Unfortunately before the advent of the internet it was extremely difficult to showcase your artwork no matter how wonderful it was. Nowadays however almost anybody is put together an online art gallery and showcase it to the world. One of the more popular forms of artwork that has grown up with internet is Fantasy Art. Let’s take a little look at what it is.
Fantasy Art is simply art work that often includes a magical theme. Often these themes are interlaced with ‘science fiction’ and ‘horror’. The majority of pieces of fantasy art that you can find online include mythical creatures. A lot of the art work online is tied to fantasy fiction, in fact, if you read a fantasy story or watch a movie there is a good chance out there that there is some art created about the subject.
Those that create fantasy art have changed the way that we view images. If you go to an art gallery you will find fairly ‘bland’ paintings and portraits. The reason for this was that in the past this is what people purchased, it is what excited people. Fantasy Artists however seem to have thrown the ‘art rulebook’ aside and created artwork that is grand and exciting with much action going on it. You will never find a piece of artwork like this in an art gallery.
