I’ve always found writing to be easy. I just imagine the world I want to play in at that moment and go. However, one thing I always wanted to do, but couldn’t, was draw. I have no visual artistic talents whatsoever and it drives me crazy. It’s why I’m so attracted to those who have amazing artistic talents.
I find a lot of wonderful writing and writing-related sites on Twitter. Along with book blogs and editorial services, I watch for artists who do book covers. And here, not too long ago, I found one that blew my mind. It’s called Fantasy_Art_Z. The beauty and reality of this artist’s work stopped me in my tracks.
Of course, the first thing I did when I visited the website was to see if they did book covers. Not only does she do book covers, but she does music covers as well. I never would have thought of doing something like that. Very cool. She also has a full catalog of premade book covers ready to be paired with a great story.
I was always a fan of comics growing up, but what’s considered comics these days is nothing like what I read as a kid in the 70s. Most everything I’ve seen recently has either been anime or very cartoonish. Then I saw Fantasy_Art_Z’s comic, 7 Minutes, and saw something a little different. This is more on the 1981 Heavy Metal movie level. The artwork is amazing.
Other than having a few friends who play, I know nothing about D&D. But if you play and are looking for some new characters or creatures, Fantasy_Art_Z has a whole line of them. She also has a deck of tarot cards and a set of Elementals to aid you in your personal rituals. I downloaded all three of her free texture packages and can’t wait to use them in one of my projects. I love a natural background.
If you love realistic fantasy art, are in need of a book or album cover, or if you’re a D&D player in need of some new characters, I highly recommend Fantasy_Art_Z. I’m telling you, this artist’s work will blow your mind.
