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.

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.
