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!

Copyright infringement by a company [Case study]

Sooner or later this will happen to all of us. Your art will be stolen for one or another reason and you’re left at the sideline wondering how you are gonna solve this copyright infringement.
Sadly, there is very little protection for artists, and the digital age makes theft a lot easier. In this article, we take you on a ride with Helena Fantasy Art, who had one of her masterpieces called ‘Lady Elluna’ taken from her by a Chinese company for a 3D game.

What makes a good creature design

Creature design is a wonderful subject. Few artists didn’t attempt at least once to make a creature design work. Be that a hybrid, a whole new creature, or maybe a design that roots into some form of technology. But what makes a good creature design?
Surrounded by fauns and mermaids, chimera and centaurs, one may think ‘oh, creature design is easy, we take one part, and add another animal part, maybe even a third and we’re done. But it isn’t that simple. Sure, we can make wonderful creature designs by cutting and pasting animal parts, but true creature design is FAR more than that.
