Illustration In Fantasy Art

Illustrations And Fantasy Art Gallery A mysterious artists named just Alan

Fantasy art is illustration and ideas and concepts are widely paid for to you as the artist as a commission or a series of commissions, to get your work out there you need a portfolio, but additional to thst you need a website of your own to quickly link to all of your professional work and say what company you worked for, this acts as a showcase for the types of work you do but can also prove that you have undergone contract works and paintings.

The art of Eric Wadley has some great examples of digital art inspired by fantasy worlds and imaginated realms.

The more you take the time to look online in particular with regards to artists portfolio galleries the better equipped you will be to create inspired artwork only you can create.

Always remember that your art samples have to reflect the kinds of work you are capable of producing on a standard or a par with the top fantasy art illustrators, so keep your eye on the ball with respect to up and coming artists.

As a side note Valarie posted this really helpful post on her blog Peskypixies and though it was highly relevant to the Zazzle post I did a few days ago.

In short she recommends a site called and just explains why it is a great site for artists to show their work and sell it. go and check it out!

Network With Fantasy Artists And Their Work

Fantasy artists are gathering all over the internet and probably have been there for awhile, some gaining considerable notice while others not so much except for friends and family, it is my intention to create a network of fantasy art blogs for the latter.

The very notion of having your own blog is the best thing because you already have a base to blog about your art and write all about your daily drawing and creative tasks.

So if you want to be added to this netwok then just comment here r contact me directly through my googlemail at the top of the screen.

The benefits of a network of blogs as opposed to a single blog all on it's own:

* Increased visibility and networking possibilities.
* Share content to link to and recommend to others.
* Learn something new from another artist.
* Get inspired by others art.
* Joint venture to create some unique projects.

There are lots more benefits to being part of a blog network, because it focuses on all aspects of a niche, if done right, a network can grow in traffic and income if your blog is monetized well.

So if you have a fantasy related blog, then I highly recommend you link up here, so if you have a fantasy blog in the following areas fantasy art, comic books, fantasy films(any genre)fantasy books,fantasy jewelry,anything gothic art related.

Then linking up will give you an extra boost, especially as will be the hub of all networked blogs, as I Wayne Tully intend to build a unique and great network to be a part of in this coming year.

I look forward to see your work and blog about you too.

The Amazing Fantasy Art Of Other Zazzle Designers

I like to look at art quite often and I get inspired by other artists work on a regular basis and when I look at other artists work on Zazzle I think how often can I better my own, but not saying mine is bad, just to say that heir are some exceptional artists out there also who may have done some professional work or commissions around the internet.

What strikes me though is the quality of some of these artists work and the effort they put into it, you can see that they love their work and what they do, so this is their gallery of fantasy art and related fantasy art with paintings and art prints galore.

Zazzle is also a really great business if you concentrate all of your efforts into it, the creation of designs may be easy but the marketing of all of your hard work becomes the hard work and the most important part of your zazzle business, but if you look online, then you will find lots of free advice, plus on zazzle they have a pdf that goes through the things you could do to promote your zazzle galleries.

Here you can go and find advanced promotion methods for your zazzle promotions.

One thing to remember with Zazzle is that it's a great site to brand yourself and get the word out on your art, plus you can have more than one account and build multiple online stores for different themed art.

Fantasy Art Inspiration In The World And Influences Around Us

All around us inspiration can be taken from the real life images our eyes capture everyday, these mental images are stored in our computer like brains for lots of creative stuff that we as humans do quite naturally, whether it's making the perfect cup of tea right down to making the bed with origami folded sheets.

Drawing and creating fantasy art comes about when we are drawn to or sucked in by the contagious and inspirational artwork of other artists and then we tend to see realistic looking life landscapes in paintings and the inspired choices that the artists made and combine all these mental images into our own imaginative creations.

To see how other artists do what they do and how they do it is best. But also inspiration can be found within stories, books and lists of words, these are far better to imagine your creations with, something that you read and then conjure up images in your own mind as to what can be sketched on paper.

Medieval history for me is a good source of inspiration especially for castles and knights armour that kind of thing, years back in real history has influence in the future of many created pieces of artwork, whether it be a painting or portrait. Your imagination can be used to exaggerate your influences and make them your own ideas and concepts.

Art of the past can be one of the main sources of inspiration, because many artists had little distractions such as the internet or even television, so they had the time to concentrate on their works of art and become good at it much quicker. But even now there are more and more fantasy artists out there who are earning a reputation as quality and professional artists from their own websites and blogs and the ability to command artist commissions from all the available sources.

Top idea - Make A Concepts Folder Of The Art You Are Influenced By

Unique Fantasy Art Drawing is an easy to follow concept once you understand the basics of sketching out ideas.

Use Zazzle Galleries For Featuring Fantasy Art And Random Photography

Just thought I'd include my Zazzle gallery and just mention that everyone who likes art in some form or another should have their very own Zazzle store and gallery to sell their work, it's free to sign up and the potential to earn from selling your own designs is part of the reason that many are earning a good income for their work.
