Splinterlands Art Contest: SPIRIT OF THE FOREST

She’ll heal and protect her friends while flying and shooting arrows at her enemies. She’s hard to hit and does a lot of damage while keeping the front monster alive making her one of my favorite cards.

From the safety of the Eldest Tree, deep in the shrouded magic of the Hungry Wood, the Spirit of the Forest lives and grows. She is one of the original creators of life in the Splinterlands, and little happens without her knowing about it. She can be summoned to battle by a skilled summoner, but she loves all her children as a good mother should.

Coming across the latest Splinterlands Art Contest, I thought I would do a sketch inspired by one of the new cards, but after looking through them all, I decided on sketching the classic ALPHA card, SPIRIT OF THE FOREST, instead. At first I thought I would have her growing a tower of protection and a tree from the ground as if she where a reverse Night King from Game of Thrones. I copy and pasted her and her healing powers from the game initially as inspiration or as a guide, but she fit in perfectly, so I moved, resized, and redrew her healing magic and blurred her into the picture. I changed her face and hair a little bit and made her boobs bigger. I changed the position of her arms to fit with my idea and had her hands blur into healing power and the tower so I could avoid drawing them. I took some pictures along the way in Procreate then stacked them all on top of each other in their own layers and exported it as an animated GIF. Thanks for checking out my Splinterlands sketch today. I know I cheated a bit with the copy and paste part, but it was fun and it came out nice.

Dear Dragons, Help me escape the Silver League!

There are many play to earn crypto games, but none so far have the community or solid gameplay Splinterlands provides. You need to buy a $10 Summoner’s Spellbook to begin, but you’ll also get a HIVE account where you can post and earn with communities like TravelfeedLeoFinance, and the HIVE Gaming Community. There are many more great communities on the HIVE blockchain, but those are where I spend most of my time. I came across this Dragon challenge today, so I monstered up and tried to break free of the SILVER LEAGUE with the help of my lovely DRAGON cards.

Each time I get close to the gates of the GOLD LEAGUE, I get kicked down and struggle to come back only to be kicked down again. It’s because you only earn 10 rank points when you’re near the top where most of your opponents are lower ranking and when they win you’ll take a huge hit to your rank.

After this great battle I knew I had something good to share and it also gave me the momentum to go on a ten straight winning streak…C2441C4A483144C68A9FFBA9DF0CC743.jpeg9B31D74ABF95464088086068C748792E.jpeg

And to finally be free of the dreaded SILVER LEAGUE. Why is SILVER LEAGUE harder than GOLD LEAGUE? I think it’s because GOLD LEAGUE players rely on strong cards while SILVER LEAGUE players are using weaker cards, but better strategies. Anyways thanks for checking out my battle today. Have a good one!
