12 Beautiful Illustrated Fantasy Landscapes
Fantasy allows us to create a world that is unrestricted by reality. It transforms us into a different realm where magic is employed and hopes and dreams can come true. This is why fantasy landscapes are so appealing.
Everyone yearns for something magical and enchanted, and many very talented designers have created beautiful illustrations of fantasy landscapes that almost make dreams come to life. Check out the stunning work of inspiring fantasy artists below to see how much an illustration can pique your imagination.
Who wants to live in a house that is above the clouds? All of us. You can swing high up in the tree and grow sunflowers in your garden without being restricted by gravity.
A castle set in a romantic landscape of gushing water and a stunning backdrop of clouds and sunset is purely magical. You can almost see the knight in shining armor bringing his rescued damsel back to the castle to live happily ever after.
This edge of the world illustration is brilliant with water spilling over what appears to be a sculptured platform. The very low contrast in this image makes it even more powerful and enchanting.
Do you know where fairies live? Perhaps in these cottages located in huge tree barks. The green color scheme creates a forest-like beauty, untouched by modern civilization.
This is perhaps a modern rendition of a fantasy landscape with the road leading to the horizon that features a supersized radiant moon. The sharpness of the image creates a reality-based fantasy—an austere contrast.
This is actually a collection of fantasy landscapes but I particularly love the last image. This monochromatic interpretation of a full moon reveals the appearance of a wolf in the river.
7. Snow Fantasy
Snow-capped mountains and white fig trees beneath a fantastical sky of clouds and a moon create an image of sheer beauty and radiance.
Destructive and forceful, this fantasy landscape features sharp images and vivid colors. Can war really look this stunning?
The silhouette created by the wolf is a perfect contrast to the luminosity of the two moons and the glistening stars. You can almost hear the wolf howling into the crisp night air.
The delicate windows opening to a beautiful oil-painting rendition of a mountainous landscape is breathtaking. The lighting in this illustration reveals the work of a true artist.
An iceberg with a white castle or an entire castle made to look like an iceberg? Regardless of which is which, the white and blue color scheme, glass-like water, and textured snow make this image worthy of note.
Clean, crisp and refreshing, this image conjures up the possibility of the sky, the moon, and the clouds meeting in the horizon.
