Chibis on Hive | My Splinterlands Art Contest Week 214 Entry | Lira The Dark

avatar
(Edited)

I have been contemplating back and forth on whether I should make an entry for the Splinterlands art contest. One thing that is pulling me back is the lack of knowledge of Splintertalnds. Good thing that I have a friend that is playing Splinterlands. Through him, I get more interested in the game, especially in the characters. I saw @sensiblecast's entry for the last week's event, and so my curiosity grew more. By the way, he won sixth place! Woohoo!

So, I scrutinized more by checking out Splinterland's official website. I checked on the different cards and was amazed at the different character designs. Hmm, I might really hop into this game one day, but for now, due to my schedule and other life activities, my time is under constraints. I will definitely look for a time to learn more about Splinterlands.


This is my first time to have an entry, and I am so thrilled to draw Lira the Dark in a chibi style! By the way, I have an NFT collection on NFT Showroom called Chibis on Hive. Feel free to check them out!

Before sketching Lira, I first watched her background story on YouTube. It is a way for me to conceptualize and imagine Lira. Oh, wow, she is freaking powerful in a sinister way. I like her dark aura. I also grabbed a picture of her to guide me as I draw.

Sketch

On the drawing tool, I picked on the pencil to sketch Lira. I first started with the flow of her hair.

It is easier for me to proportionate everything when I base it first on the hair.

I sketched most of the big details and skipped the small details such as the earrings, flowers, and necklace.


Line art

I used a black pencil for the line art. To make sure that it is symmetrical, I flip the canvas every now and then. I want the hoodie to be accurately centered and symmetrical. I used different layers because it is easier for me to erase the edges and not erase adjacent lines. I spent a lot of time copying the arm lace of Lira, haha! It took a lot of attention to drawing those lines.

Flat color

I simply color-picked the colors from Lira to accurately copy the colors. I adjusted the colors to make a dimension. For example, the back hair of Lira is darker compared to the front. In my style, I do not put shadows on the clothing and hair, just for the skin. Some of the colors were hard to obtain since the original character has shadowings which affect the true colors.

For me, it is more cartoonish which is close to chibi style. By the way, did you know that chibi is a Japanese slang word that means short or little? In art style, chibi suggests cuteness.
Oh, noticed that little blood on the lips? I just realized it when I zoomed in Lira.


The details (flower, earrings, and necklace)

This time, I did not intend to make the flower symmetrical. I want to draw a flower that is more natural, so I drew it in without using the symmetry tool. I actually had a hard time not making the flower look awkward, lol. I think I tried this a few times stroking the same lines over and over for 5 minutes until I get the not-so-awkward lines.

Thanks for the copy-paste, it is easier to make the other earring. I first completed the details of one earring. I made sure that it was somehow similar to Lira. The picture is too pixelated when zoomed in. So, I just rely on what I can see.


Final Art! (Shadows, glows, background, and more details~)

After finishing all the details of the chibi, I then proceeded for the background, shadowing, and glows. I chose a neutral dark purple for the background, and used the gradient tool. I also add a layer of shadow on Lira's face. For the red bolt and fragments, I adjusted the opacity and glow effect. I put them on the edge as well as the lower part of the chibi character. Checked everything, zoon in, zoom out, tadaaaa!

Lira The Dark is done!

cute version of lira madam ji!!! i also want to play the game but i still have doubts due to a lot of accounts getting hacked for entering the game, so better make sure you use another hive account for it, than your main one, just to make sure because it happened to my brother and beause of it he stopped playing .. but maybe they already fixed it now but still better be safe than sorry hahahah anyways! I’ve tried playing the game, it needs so much attention and more hive in buying those spell books but worth it ~ saw a recent post about a guy earning 50k+ earning and comparing it to the sweldo of his teacher 🤔 nyaahahha sana all nalang

Wow, you really transformed this artwork, also loved the fact that you expressed your lack of full knowledge about Splinterlands - But it's great to learn and make an entry one way or Another. I'm also learning more about Splinterlands Monsters through the Weekly Share Your Battle Challenge. Good Luck to you ✨
