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.
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 Travelfeed, LeoFinance, 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…
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!
I wish I could go back in time and start this game when it launched. Some of the reward cards I thought were junk a few years ago are worth a lot now. I really regret selling this card, but I’m happy I drew it. The pencil on paper looked OK, but the blur tool in Procreate on iPad plus some technical pen really made this sketch look sharp. This was my first SPLINTERLANDS inspired sketch.
I’m a master deletor. I delete everything unless it has some emotional significance or looks really cool. I couldn’t find the finished digital version of this one, but I see why this one survived the delete button. I drew this right before covid-1984 came along.
I love drawing hair. Looking back on this I think of how I would’ve done it better, or made it into a GIF, but I just figured out how to animate drawings in Procreate this month. I know a lot of people think that Elon Musk’s Neurolink is some creepy mark of the beast 1984 thing, but I think it would be really great for artists who can just sit down and think about their digital paintings and see them created from the power of thought on a screen. Maybe this sexy witch made me say that.
I’m broke. I don’t have any money. I don’t have a job. Just like everybody else, this COVID-1984 ruined my life. I’ve had to sell most of my cards, but not this one. It’s a true SPLINTERLANDS keeper in my opinion.
I always give my own nickname to my cards, but Spirit of the Forest is perfect. This is a real star card when you MAX it out. When I got the stimulus I put it all into SPLINTERLANDS cards. I maxed all the BETA summoners and a few key cards including this one.
I spent all day drawing this and was really bummed out it only made ten cents. Maybe that’s why I quit drawing SPLINTERLANDS cards. After all this time I know you shouldn’t get bummed when a good post earns nothing, you should forget it and move on, but it honestly does affect my motivation to continue with some things here. I think I’ve got one more SPLINTERLANDS inspired sketch in me. What do you think would be a cool one to draw? Thanks for checking out my drawings today. Get in the game!
This is my favorite Splinterlands Card and my students wanted to draw again, so we drew without cheating by tracing with the iPad Pro or projector.
We used our phones to find some inspiration.
It was getting dark so, I sketched the outline quickly. It wasn’t exactly like the source, but none of my students noticed.
Once I got the outline and some of the unicorn’s mane, I was able to shut the screen off and add my own style. If you want to straight up cheat and trace drawings with the big iPad, that’s easy, but it works great as a smooth sketching surface and for holding A4 papers with the cover shut. I honestly don’t like Apple as a company, but I absolutely love the iPad Pro.
I taught everyone how to use Qtips to blend pencil. I made a black spot for collecting the lead at different shades. The paper it was on served as a protector from my dirty hand too.
My students didn’t spend as much time on their drawings as I did. When I was a kid, older people complained that we had short attention spans. It seems like things have gotten worse, but who knows?
All the smudges were easy to clean up in Procreate.
I gave the unicorn my style of eyes and hair for the mane. It’s been fun drawing again. Thank you for this great community where we can share our life, art, and thoughts together. If it weren’t for this blog, I doubt I would’ve ever started drawing again.
