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?
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!
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?
