Video games and books. Although there are a couple of fantasy films I like, there are not half as many good ones as there are great games and books about it. Also, when I enjoy a fantasy world and its characters I usually want to spend more time with it/them than just 1-2 hours.

I have only ever seen a handful of fantasy movies that I actually liked, and I don't really read many books (let alone fantasy ones) although I'm looking to change that. As for fantasy art, I guess that would be a thing if I saw more of it.
So, yeah, I'm going to go with video games then. Between the Legend of Zelda series, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Child of Light, Dark Souls, Okami, and Ni No Kuni, I think I've got fantasy covered.

I think art was a good option, as there is plenty of traditional media art out there now, and throughout history that was fantasy and not related to particular books, games or movies. Sometimes an artist who isn't a writer or film maker still portrays fantasy on their own.

I'd go with books and movies. Mainly because most of my favorite fantasy books I've read have become AWESOME movies: Conan, LoTR, a plethora of Cthulhu Mythos adaptations, Golden Compass, Island of Dr Moreau, Princess Bride and a bunch more. And countless other Sci-Fi films based off Clark and PKD and such.
