Showcase of Dark and Mythical Fiction Fantasy Artworks

The fantasy genre spans many generations, styles and forms, crossing many boundaries along the way. From Lord Of The Rings, to The Odyssey, and Beowulf, the fantasy genre is one where there are few rules, and anything goes. Creators and storytellers can express themselves and their ideas fully with no limitations. Much like science fiction, fantasy requires a healthy dose of imagination from the creator, regardless of what fantasy sub-genre is involved.

Since fantasy is a very visual art form, the most popular works are indeed visual; mainly, movies. But even movies start with a concept, where artists create concepts, paintings, illustrations and artworks that will eventually serve as inspiration for the finished product. We’ve collected 30 haunting and mythic fantasy artworks that are sure to arouse your attention. Enjoy!
