Elfwood is the worlds largest home to SciFi/Fantasy art and fiction...
Where else can you find a world where everything is possible, where dreams become reality and where creatures from your imagination come to life?
Fantasy is an escape to a distant, wonderful world of legend inhabited by elves, faeries, dragons
and other mythical beasts. It's also a world of magic, great adventures, mighty battles and quests against
the dark, evil lords.
There are three major ideas behind this site;
- Letting creative people show pieces of art and fiction from the wonderful world of fantasy/scifi to the general public.
- Letting all amateur fantasy artists and writers show their work for free, helping them to get a name and reputation, as well as useful, creative comments and new contacts.
- Helping other artists with inspiration by giving a chance to look at fellow artists' art and fiction.
Thomas Abrahamsson, the founder of Elfwood, would like to thank Massimiliano Bertuzzi
and Robert Orta who inspired him to
start the site. If you are an amateur fantasy artist, we would love to feature some of your
work on this site. Please read our joining page
for further information.
Elfwood is a huge home to Fantasy/Sci-Fi art and literature.
In respond to feedback from artists and viewers, Elfwood has expanded its
site to cover a full range of Art, Fiction and How-To Guides. It is tightly
controlled to stay within the SciFi/Fantasy theme, as art or stories depicting
other motifs are not accepted. We host a wide range of original artwork
to behold and inspire, and exciting tales to tantalize the imagination.
The growth of Elfwood has been tremendous since its humble
beginning in May 96. (Founded 1st of May 1996).

Great news everybody, Elfwood have been recommended for a creative

Elfwood's mission is to provide a place for amateurs from all over the
world to share, teach, and inspire a new generation of dreams."
We strive to promote the creation of art and fiction as a serious and
meaningful hobby for the young generation, introducing them to painting and
writing, helping them to create their own material and finally giving them
the option to publish what they have created. This is a value we cultivate
at the site in relation to young people. It is our goal to continue our
work with young amateurs in the field of art and fiction.
Our vision for the future is to further expand the site, offering space
for even more artists and writers, while keeping the site easy-to-navigate,
informative and entertaining. We intend to keep Elfwood as a free-to-join
site, without any fees or strings attached, giving new and upcoming artists
an unparalleled opportunity to publish their material here.
