:star: What Is Fantasy?

All entries should somehow relate to our theme of fantasy. This is a very broad spectrum, since fantasy encompasses the realms of dreams, magic, and fiction. It blends reality with the impossible.

The word "fantasy" conjures lots of really wonderful imagery! We invite you to delve into a world of fantasy to offer these kinds of free resources...
    Wizards, unicorns, dragons, faeries, zombies, mythic backgrounds, love potions, magical symbols, mystical special effects, enchanted books or scrolls, medieval weapons and inventions, monsters of all types, and countless other options!
Here's a list of some things that may help you get inspired...
    Fantasy Movies:
    • Willow (1986)
    • Dragonheart (1996)
    • El Laberinto del fauno (Pan's Labyrinth 2006)
    • Tangled (2010)
    • Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
    Fantasy Books:
    • The Lord of the Rings (J. R. R. Tolkien)
    • The Princess Bride (William Goldman)
    • A Song of Ice and Fire (George R. R. Martin)
    • The Sword of Truth (Terry Goodkind)
    • Peter Pan (J. M. Barrie)
    Fantasy Games:
    • Dungeons & Dragons
    • Dragon Age: Origins
    • League of Legends
    • World of Warcraft
    • The Legend of Zelda
What kinds of artists need fantasy resources? Fantasy is a genre that goes with just about all kinds of artistic media from comic books to traditional watercolor paintings to sculptures to character sheet designers for role playing games, and more! Your fantasy resources may be used in ways that could surprise you!
