My name is Tessa, I'm the founder of Life to Legend which is ran through my company Tez Art & Design (www.tezartdesign.eu). I created this website with the intention to provide information to any creative out there, but also to anyone that's simply curious and wants to learn more about different species of animals, plants and more, extinct species and figments from imagination throughout time. If you would like to contribute, either contact me through the contact system on the website or participate in the forum! ~Love Tess

Gathering resources for your creature designs

Creature design is a relatively small, bur flourishing field. Up to roughly 20 years ago, you needed a giant library to be able to make effective designs, and information on the subject was very hard to get. That is different now in the age of the internet. We have all the information at our fingertips. But too much choice can be overwhelming too. So how do you effectively gather resources for your creature designs?

Free resources for artists

When you’re new in the art world, it’s hard to navigate and find what you’re looking for. Partially because you’re just that: New in the field and don’t know where to start, but also because you may not know what resources could be available for free, or even exist, to begin with. But no matter if you are a beginner or an advanced artist in the field: Free resources are always wonderful to have access to! So let me help you out!

Life to Legend Facebook guide and rules

We like to keep things as simple as possible, so instead of elaborating on Facebook with its limited tools to set and review the rules, we decided to go with a Life to Legend Facebook guide and rules page. If you’re someone that just likes to read along, this page might not be for you. But if you’re an active contributor, take the time to read this. It will make everybody’s life a little bit easier!

The benefits of doing art prompts

You see them everywhere! They were a thing long before Inktober and still are a thing today. In fact: There are so many channels providing art prompts that artists can make their day jobs out of it! If only it would pay, right… The reason it’s such a ‘thing’ is that it works. It works very well even. And its does for many reasons. So what are prompts, why are they so effective, and where can you find them?
