Fantasy illustrations are a favorite for many, maybe because the imagination can really run wild in the creation process. Add a beautiful woman into the scene, and you have a stunning piece of art that speaks to nearly anyone. Damsels in distress, she-devils, dragon fighters — a woman can become nearly any character desired and viewers still recognize her femininity. This fantastic retention of the female form is exactly what the artists featured below accomplish.
