Isn't this fantasy art portrait by Richard Hescox unique? A woman with white hair is wearing a crown featuring dragons, while some other dragons are flying in the sky in the background.

To see, and read about what a fantasy art portrait is, go to our first post on the subject, Fantasy Art Portraits I.

fantasy art portraits I

Filraena by Jeremy Martinson
available for sale HERE

For this feature, the focus is on fantasy art portraits. According to Google dictionary a portrait is:

a painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person, especially one depicting only the face or head and shoulders.

Since a post of this nature focuses on fantasy art, the portrait may not necessarily be a person (can be a fairy or a hybrid person). 

So much of the art that is submitted to our group focuses on portraits, therefor it seemed necessary to portray them here for the blog.

For part one of this post, the focus is primarily on digital art. Paintings will be featured in Part II of this post.

If you go to the link underneath a piece, you will find many kinds of prints available including metal prints, canvas prints, paper prints and even posters. In addition, many of these art pieces are featured on tote bags, greeting cards, pillows, tee shirts, phone cases, mugs, shower curtains and big beach towels.

Dragons profiles

Merlin's Dragon by Hartmut Jager
available for sale HERE

In a way this is a continuation of the first and second dragon posts. 

The first was primarily about Western style dragons (the ones with wings). It also heavily focused on digital art, which a lot of fantasy artists use.

The second focused primarily on Eastern style dragons (the ones without wings, who are serpent-like and are sometimes portrayed in the water). This post was more about painting, and featured some renditions that were traditionally oriented, even if original. 

This post focuses primarily on dragon profiles (mainly the head of the dragon), though the last piece in this post focuses on some parts of the body as well. The styles are drastically different from colorful painting to monochromatic digital art. It heavily features two artists, Julie Engelhardt and Ali Oppy because they tended to make more dragon portraiture than any of our other artists (at least in terms of dragons that haven't been featured on the blog before).

So first up is artist, Julie Engelhardt and her colorful paintings:
