Here's some top-notch fan art from some of the most beloved fantasy series, and a few that are a little more obscure. I deliberately excluded Tolkien and Harry Potter fan art from the feature--not because I don't love them, but because they're easy to find on dA and worth their own full features. These lovely gems illustrate an assortment of excellent fantasy (and sci-fi, technically, in the case of Pern) stories. I realized while searching for these drawings that many of my favorite books have little or no fan art at all. That's something I'll have to work on! :thumb81999720:
Whoa! Your journal update showed up in my messages, and I thought, "What a great idea - I love seeing other people's illustrations of my favorite books, and sometimes I find new series to try out this way." Imagine my surprise to find my Ratha pic in here! Thanks so much.
Haha, yes. It was really hard to find quality Dealing with Dragons fan art. I really want to draw Kazul when I have the time. Some Ga'hoole art that isn't based on the film or just depicting Soren would be nice. So many of my favorite stories have so little or no art at all! Fortunately, a lot of people seem to love the Abhorsen trilogy and Temeraire, two of the best modern fantasy series.
