Lyya's artwork (Tumblr link)


Hi everyone,

I’m a hobbyist artist just getting my feet wet in digital painting. I’ve decided to finally take the plunge and put my art out there for people to see. (For now, the art will be Final Fantasy XIV-based, as that’s where my interests are, but that could change in the future.) For anyone interested, my Tumblr is: For now there’s only one image, but I’ll be putting more up soon. This is a hard step for me, as I’m mostly technical by nature, and comfortable there; art is uncomfortable, but it’s a talent I want to cultivate. Any likes, reposts, or follows would be appreciated.

Thanks for listening.



The pic, for those who just want to see it:


It’s really a big step for every artist to gather enough courage to post their first works, but i’m glad you are starting your journey. :slightly_smiling_face:


Wow Lyya, if this is just a hobbie…Wow!!!

Your artwork is REALLY great! I mean that in every way.

Thank you so much for sharing and I look forward to seeing more.


That is really good! Artistic talent took a very long detour around me when they were giving it out…


Yes, just a hobby. That’s actually my very first digital painting. Lots to learn yet…


I’m waiting for the GoW fanart with Mercy pwning some meta troop… :grin:


Oh yeah. Singlehandedly. If raiding taught me anything, it’s that you anger the healer at your peril.


Amazing job @Lyya! I am also tackling digital art this year, I can aprpeciate how hard it is. You are very talented! Can’t wait to see more!


Great stuff @lyya


If that’s ‘getting your feet wet’, you are an artist. No qualifiers. Keep doing that.


I am now following you on Tumblr.


Terrific stuff. When you’re feeling comfortable with it, I want to offer you a commission. And not for free.

Another GREAT job!!! This is really fun seeing your artwork.

Thanks so much for sharing with us. :slight_smile:

This is in response to your blog post on Tumblr. I followed your link, viewed your work and your words. I wanted to respond. Wow! No need to be self deprecating at all. You are an artist, and a talented one at that. Very vivid colors that pop, and grab your attention. Every detail is sharp and crisp. You can tell that you love these characters, and put a lot of effort and love into them. Kudos to you, and thank you for sharing your art with the world. I am always happy and encouraged, to see someone pursuing their passion. It is too easy to let self doubt, rob you of the joy gained, developing and displaying your gifts. I can’t wait to see what comes next. I did subscribe to your Tumblr account. I expect to see more great work based on what you have already shared. Thank you.


I’m not done with this one (I want to ink and color it), but I’ll post it here anyway. This is an elezen (elf), for a friend of mine.

EDIT: Hah, chose a bad day to post this!


I love it! All over elves. You’re amazing!


Finished that last piece. I managed to screw everything up several times in the process and had to adjust my approach…ugh.

Request for Lyya to redo the Art work for Frost Archer
