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!
Very close to the upcoming changes, time to give you some more details about what you can expect! When will the sister FB group be made? How about the Discord channel? And the prompts, how will we move forward with those? And what other things did we discuss in the time between the first announcement and this one. You can find it all here!
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?
If you’re an artist you probably heard of the imposter syndrome before. If not: You most likely felt it and now finally finding a name for it. The imposter syndrome is the feeling of doing something you don’t feel eligible to do, because you think your art sucks, or are not as good as the others. A feeling you think you will get over as time goes on and your art improves. But let me tell you that the imposter syndrome is an illusion. An illusion haunting nearly every single artist, no matter their skill level.
Life to Legend is roughly 1,5 years old now. Started in February 2020, shortly before the Corona pandemic became a thing, was a lucky break for something that was initially just an impulsive thing. I was hoping the initiative, at the time called Wildlife and Creature design (WaCD) would take hold but didn’t count on it. With a bit of help from other groups and some very specific people, it did grow and kept doing so up to 1500 people. Now it’s time for some much-needed changes.
