Fantasy Avengers Are the Best Avengers
Over at Deviant Art you will find lots of fantasy genre (books, games, and movie) artwork and fan art of comic superheroes to peruse. But none of them quite combine fantasy and superhero genres quite like this one.
Artists often post here to allow viewership of their recent works in hopes of picking up a gig, or just to show off. While these posts from theDURRRRIAN will likely never be featured in a game or comic book cover, it is an awesome way of showing off the artists skills. And they’re just fun to look at — Feel free to play the role of fantasy superhero uber-geek, and get lost in these fan-art masterpieces…
i present to you the Captain
the big green guy
So my housemate gave me the idea of painting the avengers with a high/dark/ epic fantasy setting and who better to start with than loki.
took a less ‘sexed-up’ approach so hopefully it works out
Descriptions are from the artist’s page here. He wrote that this will hopefully be a large collection, featuring more Avengers and possibly some other super heros thrown in there. Let’s hope so, because these are fantastic.
This isn’t an Avengers work, but I included it here just to show off as an interesting concept. This barbarian woman takes the concept of Portal and places it in a fantasy world. I suppose the protagonist would slice at the wall to open a portal, and it would peel back like slicing through flesh. A fun concept to think about for fans of Portal.
And finally, I just liked the style of this one. The lightning effects are very cool, and I like how it sort of distorts the image behind it. The artists uses broad and sometimes crude brushstrokes to create the strange pattern and give this work a sense of tension, like this guy is going to destroy everything in his path without breaking sweat.[ht: GeekTyrant]
