Lira The Dark | My Entry for Splinterlands Art Contest
Splinterlands Art Contest
Hello guys, I'm back from the dead XD. I know I skipped the contest for the last two weeks. This wasn't supposed to happen because I already have some artwork in the queue just in case if I get lazy one day. But that was not the case this time because my eyes suddenly got blurry after using my buddy's pc for a while. Something like this happened last year and it was cleared within the day but this time it didn't so I took some days off to regain my vision back and I can say it's much better now but this time I think I need to upgrade my glass power sadly. This was pretty obvious since I'm a digital artist and I have no intention to leave this field haha.
Anyway, for this week I decided to make an official character artwork. It's been a while since I made an official one so I chose Lira the dark to be my artwork. I made some changes to it if you compare it with the official design to make her more suited for my style.
Lira The Dark
Yeah, purple is not really my favourite colour but I made it work somehow. This is my second design of lira because the first one with the hoodie on her head was not really working for me. I didn't want to hide her beautiful hair like that so I excluded it from my artwork. I consider hair an integral part of my paintings. It really brings out the beauty in a character. Although I did have some trouble painting purple hair XD. My old method didn't work on this one so I had to experiment a lot with it again.
I made this artwork very slowly, only spending 15-30 minutes per day because of my eye condition. So I have been at it for more than a week now haha. I'm glad that I could finish it today. Yesterday I made that background, very simple and minimalist but it looks great with her colour scheme. I used pen fade brush to create that strokes by the way.
In the official design, her hand is glowing but I wanted to change that so I added that glow inside the flower but with the same purple accent colour hehe. I also made her necklace in my style because I don't like the gold colour with her skin. The steel variant looks much better if you ask me haha.
I totally forgot to paint the buckle like thing infront of her dress. I painted that after finishing the whole thing. It's a good thing that someone made lira artwork on last week's contest. When I was checking out the compilation post today I saw it there and instantly understood that I forgot to add the buckle in my painting. Things like the embroidery work on the hand sleeves were removed because it looks off on my variant when I added it. I wanted to draw the earnings but the hair was gonna hide it anyway so skipped that as well. I think I already added too much stuff in there so it's gonna look bad if I keep adding more so I decided to stop there and refined the artwork in the meantime.
The light source I choose this time was a generic one, it was from the top so I was a bit worried about the final output but it turned out well. That's about it guys I hope I don't skip the next one. I'll try my best not to haha.

Thank you so much for your time :)
#1 stunner 😍. She looks so pretty! I love how you incorporated the flower on her shoulder. And her eyes look mesmerizing. Your version of Lira looks super classy and elegant. Really nice work all around!
Thanks Ema 🤩. The new style is really working for me hehe.
Yeah, it is. Your style is definitely distinctive and appealing. You're so good with bright/saturated colors. Keep going with it!
Yep, that's the plan hehe. People seems to like bright vibrant pictures these days. I hope I can reach samdoesart level in the future hahahaha...
You can make it to that level in your own style, definitely. Have a great evening! Hope the new year is kind to you.
Thanks Ema. For some reason I didn't get any notification for this last message from you. As expected from my phone 😂.
Ah, it's OK. Could be both our phones colluding against us. Ecency app has been pretty screwy on mine since a recent update 🤷♀️
This app shows different reward value as well compared to peakd. Do you have this issue as well?
You know, I can't say for sure because I really only use this front end to access Hive. But that is weird. It really seems like the rewards should be the same, regardless of the front end. Now I'm curious 🤔
I'll post some screenshots on discord. It's not just the value, the reputation level is also off on certain pages XD. Maybe it's exclusive to me lolz.
There are probably others having the same experience 🙊

Thanks oscariart 🤩!
Excellent work, friend.
Thanks bro 😁.
really lovely drawing, amazing anatomy. you should probably make a blue version. if someone is called "the dark" surroundings of blue sounds darker.
love the perfect folding of the cloths. wow
I didn't make the design based on her name haha. I tested it with other colours but purple looks good compared to other ones.
Thanks for your suggestions:)
Thanks for sharing! - castleberry#6859
Thanks for the upvote 🤩.
Beautiful legs hahaha. I loved it, Lira is one of the cards I like the most in the death splinter, although this time she looks very friendly haha.
She looked great when I saw the card. That's why I drew her but in a different style haha. Copying the whole design just like that is not my thing hence you got a friendly version here hehe.
Thanks for commenting:)
You've transformed Lira The Dark into Lira The Beauty Queen. Great work.
That's exactly what it felt like when i finished drawing it haha. Thanks for commenting :)
The idea is great though. Splinterlands can have one more beautiful card.
Thanks hehe. I'm happy to hear that 🤩.
