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

Animal locomotion slow-motion video’s

Locomotion is key to understand the anatomy of an animal properly. You can’t draw an interesting and believable pose without understanding the way the animal moves. You also can’t understand the way an animal moves without understanding its anatomy. These day’s we’re a lucky bunch because current technology allows us to see animals in slow motion. Allow me to introduce you to some of the best videos out there!

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!
