Lira The Dark

Good day everyone. My art for this contest is Lira The Dark. This will be my last art for good since I'm going to be busy now for the new business im going to venture with but I'll still be in hive but just as a voter only. My plan is to make my own list of winner based on the art sent in the competition although my prize is not the fabulous as the Splinterlands give.

My inspiration for this art is Jennie Kim of black pink and this is the second time I used her as an imspiration. Yeah yeah i like her so what. She's just an inspiration for the pose and I still tweak the pose to make it sexier since you know my art are always sexy and enticing and to add to that Lira suppose to be sexy.

This is the timelapse/GIF of the my art. It has 500+ layers and done for atleast 14-15 hours in total. This is my second favorite from what i've done for Splinterlands so far, my first in the list is my Javelin Thrower. Lots of people ask me why she has a belly fat but i like her that way and it's not a belly fat anyway, its the crumble from her costume. I remove some of Lira's ornament since i plan from the start to put Lira in her undies like what Jennie has but she might not be that recognizable thats why I still put her cloth.

The Steps





The Pose

First is the pose, Ive done it same as what Jennie's posing but change some of it. It's not the best posing drawing you can see but hey it's just a pose guide i still have my first sketch of her. Unlike my previous art I didnt create multiple pose for this art. After i saw that Jennie's picture i alrady imagine what Lira should look like in final output.

The Physique


Second step is the physique, on this step I determine how her body will look like. On my mind im imagining muscle and even bone structure. I didnt tell this as my step on my previous art since its like already a routine for me, I just realized that this is always been part of my step although it is not in visual but just on my mind. On this art i sketch how big will be her thigh, hips, arts, breast... This part is as important as all the steps.

The Lining


Third Step is the lining. Although i still do add more lining on the process but on this step it is atleast 90% done with lining. This part is important to me as an artist this part is the most important step. I spend lots of my time doing it perfectly. When im getting lazy or burned out finishing the lining makes me feel the urge of finishing the art faster and better. It's like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

The Base Color


Forth step is adding the base color, this step will make the art looks alive. Anything from this part is easy now. Step 1 and 3 are the hardest step. Doing this i can watch anime and movies at the same time. There's also a time that I can grind my account or check some emails and social medias.

Shadow and Highlights


This is the final step on finishing my art. All the hard time will be remove after you finish this step. Fulfilment might be the best word to describe it. This part is not that hard also, You just need some broad imagination and you should determine where is your source of light is. There is 2 layers of my shadow, the darker and lighter shadow.














The Final Output

Hey, I read your message about my post. I'm also honestly surprised why I was on the leaderboard. Anyways, you mentioned why the curation is low and here's what I thought.

Right now, the hive price is really low because of all the FTX issue. Crypto all around is too low and that's why the curation overall is low as well. Once bitcoin goes up, the value of all coins increases and that includes the curation value as well.

In terms of drawing, I would say that your lines are better than mine but I think you cut off a lot in the designs. The necklace is missing, the boots are missing, etc. Same as the Javelin thrower, the rope on the spear changed, the gloves are missing. When I do a fan art, I try to add as much of the design as I could unless it's impossible on my current skill level like that Prince Julian staff glow thingy.

That's just my personal critique. However, Among all the works I've seen, I like your shieldbearer best because all the details are there. Shows that you really cared for the original artist's intent

And the other one is the haunted spider but that's because your background is awesome. I'm bad at backgrounds so that kind of gave me some inspiration.

Any case, it's just my preference and opinion. I hope your new business become successful and hope to see your works when you come back.

yahhh, its ok not to win. but i wish to be curated better too. hahaha, the only difference between my art and all of you(winner's) art is air brush(yours) and digital painting(the other winner). hahaha tried doing it using my mouse but it just hurting my wrist.

im a logo designer at my day job. i dont really the skill for painting like you guys do. hahaha

These are old and consistent participants. Don't be discouraged.
They might have experienced what you are experiencing while they are starting but they keep on pushing until today.

Don't be jealous of them, instead, let them be your inspiration. While we are seeing their rewards and attention they are getting now, let us not forgot that they might also have passed through a gruesome journey before. 😊

Don't lose focus! Focus on your work instead on the reward of others. 🙂

It is really a bit discouraging when sometimes when we feel that we are not rewarded "equally" as compared to others, but that is real life. And life is not fair. 😊

Btw, I read you are a logo designer? I might need one or two logos in the future. Is there a way I can contact you through discord? I want to see some of your previous logo works. 😉
