Electric Neon Illustrations of Fantasy Forests and the Majestic Beasts Within

Vibrant Nature Illustrations by Juliette Oberndorfer

French concept artist Juliette Oberndorfer creates vibrant, atmospheric artworks that depict spirit animals in mystical forests. Although Oberndorfer’s illustrations look hand-painted, most are created digitally. Fluid strokes, lush textures, and flowing shapes are generously layered together in a range of electric, sunset hues. Pink, plum, and lilac skies harmonize with shots of turquoise blue, and contrasting fiery reds illuminate the deep hued forest.
