If you have been spending any time in the art world you will very likely have been approached for NSFW art. It might have been due to your style or because of the profession, you picked. This can be simply because you have a very realistic style and you can envision a scene that doesn’t exist. But also your profession in creature art which could receive requests for furry art for example. But either way, how do you deal with a request like this? And how do you handle anything following that request?
Carnivorous plants, shy plants, stinky plants… They’re all represented in the plant kingdom.
This time we discuss a parasite, plans that live in nutrient poor environments, and plats that go hiding when you touch them.
Nature is full of surprises. Plants are usually overlooked, but today, they get a little TLC, and you will get a dose of inspiration.
Weird features of the plant kingdom is an awesome series that will inspire any artist that’s involved in drawing characters, creatures, or environments. Here we tackle the strange looking and the strange acting in the animal kingdom. Enjoy reading!
The Life to Legend overpaint contest is a monthly challenge in which anyone can participate on the Life to Legend discord channel. The contest will be on a monthly basis whenever we hit at least 15 submissions. So, how do you participate? What are the rules? And what can you expect when you participate or if you win?
If you thought the animal kingdom was strange, try the kingdom of the plant. Especially terrestrial species had much more time to evolve into what they are now than any fully terrestrial animal species ever had. When mosses like the liverwort started to take over the land, it took quite some time before aquatic animals started to take on a terrestrial life permanently.
It is believed that liverwort, the first species that could live on land, did so 476 million years ago. The first independent terrestrial animal is thought to have moved on land 450 million years ago, Now, 27 million years look like nothing over a period of nearly 500 million years, but humans, or more specifically: primitive Homo sapiens first appeared 300.000 years ago. So terrestrial plant life has an advantage of more than 475 million years over people and 27 million over terrestrial animals. That is 90x the time it took for humans to evolve from primitive homo sapiens to what we are today. Take the modern homo sapiens and we’re talking about 200.000 years back in time.
We as a species are just a blip, animals though, or plants… That’s a whole different story.
