Medieval Fantasy Avengers Revisited

By: Chris Gabbard - July 3, 2012

About a week ago we brought you an incomplete set of Avenger fan artwork that showed the different characters as medieval fantasy warriors. The artist promised that since then he would complete the set, and he has. Nick Fury, Iron Man, and Thor have been added to this set, along with a complete poster showing all the Avengers side-by-side.

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…

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

When we posted the first set, crossfirexiv noticed that these images bear a striking resemblance to the artwork for Guild Wars. The user was right, as you can see below, but that doesn’t make them an less awesome. Call these GW2 Marvel fanboy porn if you like, people still dig ’em.
