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

Bio-luminescence for creatives, the magical world of organic light.

Bio-luminescence is a magically beautiful phenomenon that’s for many people a rarity to see. Bio-luminescence is an emission of light from an organism, that emits this light for its survival and/or reproduction. It’s a biochemical mechanism that involves a chemical process, resulting in a cold light. Instead of it creating heat, the reaction will create light instead.
Although bio-luminescence is rarely seen, it’s fairly common. Both on land and in the ocean. However, these events take place around specific times of the year, making it hard to actually seek them out. Also, a lot of bio-luminescent organisms have a relatively faint light. This means they can only be seen at night when no flashlights are used, or light pollution is nearby. Nonetheless, it’s an absolutely wonderful phenomenon and worth it to seek out when you have the chance!

The Yowie and other cryptid humanoids

Unless you live in Australia, you may not have heard of the Yowie, but you surely know the Sasquatch, Yeti, or bigfoot! Maybe you even heard of the Barmanou, Chuchuna, or Almas. They are all the same kind of creatures people see throughout the world with roughly the same features. But no real evidence has been found to prove their existence. Because of this reason, they are still considered to be mythical creatures. Remarkable about this ‘family’ is that you can find them throughout the whole world!

How Life to Legend (LtL) came to be

Life to Legend is an initiative, especially for artists. The focus is around creature design, but it really doesn’t stop there. It’s a website built to create a community throughout a forum, the Facebook counterpart (Wildlife and creature design) and basically, anyone that enjoys coming here, now, and in the future. For illustrators, painters, sculptors, people in the gaming- and film industry, and even writers. People that love wildlife and creature design, but also people are just into art. So, how did this website come to be? Let us continue!
