Fantasy Illustrations – Wake up Your Imagination

Since times immemorial people have always had some unexplained, sometimes even irrational interest towards things unnatural, unusual, and mystique. Every nation has its own legends and fairy tales telling us today about ancient heroes, fighting with dragons, mutants, and other creatures. We call such art fantasy, and today it has many fans and contributing artists. We are here to share with our readers a gallery of fantasy illustrations, which represent visually common perceptions of fantastic creatures and phenomena by modern graphical artists.

Aggressive warriors, representatives of unknown races, giant insects and animals, born by the imagination of illustrators and skillfully portrayed using all the advanced digital illustrating techniques impress and awake strong emotions. Fantasy illustrations, such as those represented below, give start to creating video and computer games, fantasy movies, the popularity of which grows these days. What does this mean? Is it the desire of a humanity to escape or transform the reality? Or, maybe, the theme of fantasy is nothing but nutritive food for our imagination, seeking new challenges and adventures?

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
