One Week Portrait: Day Two

Day Two focuses on flat colours, and laying out planes. Before getting started, I adjusted some of my lines from yesterday that were a bit rough but, for the most part, decided to just go for it.

Unfortunately, today was incredibly frustrating. I hadn't saved for an hour and my tablet locked up and crashed... so I had to redo all of that work.

I was so angry. :x

I'll need to be more careful and make sure to save/upload backups, just because my samsung tablet isn't able to keep up with demands so much anymore. (It may be ArtFlow Studio's limitations, too.)

Hopefully it'll hold out so I can get this all done! xD

One Week Portrait: Day One

I'm participating in the One Week Portrait, which started yesterday

Here is my sketch, next to the photo I am using as reference: a stock photo I picked up from Pexels, taken by Victor Miyata.

It was off to a rough start, but I'm sure I'll get better as I go along. Difficulty staying focused is not so great for the drawing. xD

I'm looking forward to the painting part, to be honest.


Talizmyn’s March Art Update

March has certainly been a trial in productivity and I have been trying not to drown in the waves of anxiety. I’ve been trying to keep the depression at bay, but in the last few days I finall…

Art and Updates

Hey! It's the end of the month, so it's time for my March 2020 Art Update.

This month started out slow, and has been something of a mess overall, but I've managed to keep creating and working on personal projects.

I'm trying to remain optimistic about April as I continue to create, write, and search for a job. Wish me luck!

... And maybe check out the blog, too? ;)


Meggles' Instagram Challenge

Here's my addition to Meggles' DTIYS challenge on Instagram.

Check it out, and maybe give it a try too!


March's Supporter Rewards are Here!

March’s Supporter rewards are now on Ko-fi! I added a small extra image this month just because, but I’ll leave that as a surprise. I’m posting these a bit early this month, too, …

March Supporter Rewards

March's Supporter Rewards are up! Details are on the blog, so please check it out.

Supporter Rewards are a gift from me to all supporters: a thank you for supporting my work and enabling me to keep creating. Thanks so much!

Trials in Creative Productivity

Trying to make sense of all these pieces.Doodle, March 2020. It’s hard to be creative and productive when the worry and anxiety are so overwhelming. But I don’t need to really need to s…

The Tail of Anxiety, Stress, Searching for Work, and my Husband Losing His Job

It’s hard to be creative and productive when the worry and anxiety are so overwhelming. But I don’t need to really need to say it when so many of us are feeling it, do I?

How do we not not focus on the awfulness coming up from this virus, like the panic and greed causing toilet paper shortages? My family didn’t stock up weeks ago, aiming to be reasonable about purchasing and leaving enough for others. But, unfortunately, that means we’re now running out.

Of toilet paper. Of all things.

Clearly, not everyone else thought the way we did.

Read the rest on the blog.

Blog Update!

February!

I’m sharing the February Art Update earlier this month, since I’m travelling back to Canada(!) on the 27th to celebrate my mom’s birthday on the 28th. I haven’t seen my parents in the year-and-a-half since I moved to California, so to say that I’m excited for this trip is an understatement.

Any art-stuff I complete during the next few days will just be bumped to March’s Update, though anyone following me on social media (or Ko-fi) will get to see anything I share.

I’m not promising that I’ll be posting much during the trip, though. There will be parents to bug, dogs to hang-out with, and newborn puppies to care for. (The tiniest of sub-woofers, just born on the 23rd.)

Sketchy Elf, Revisited

Earlier this month, I posted a sketch of an elf that I felt inspired to draw. The sketch was done quickly. I like how it turned out, but it wasn't perfect so I made a mental note to come back to it later.

"Later" happened to be three days ago. I have been posting WIP snippets for supporters, but left the updates at about "half finished" two days ago.

I took a break to try out the DTIYS challenge, and finished up this drawing this afternoon. Quite a bit different form the original sketch, isn't it?

Sometimes it takes some trial and error, or error and trials, to get the right look.

Vicky's OC Spaghetti

Vicky (Visodette) is running a Draw This In Your Style (DTIYS) challenge on Twitter (#VisodetteDTIYS) of her original character, Spaghetti.

My submission is posted on Twitter, but I wanted to share here as well. This character was so fun to draw, and it gave me the opportunity to try out a few different things. I must be following a theme lately, with all the pink-haired ladies I have been drawing.

Check out Vicky's Twitter is you're interested in participating, too!

Finished up some new artwork yesterday, which I have been using for cover photos and promotional materials. The full image is up on Ko-fi!

June

Artwork my oc June (she/they) looking pretty cool if I do say myself! June is hella goth and bi! Gotta make new art of their husband Derrell sometime. My other oc Eies is their son actually!


2020 February 02: Orc

Taking a break this weekend to draw a few images for myself, to be used as examples when I'm ready to offer commissions later this month. Here is the second, a handsome orc that is yet unnamed.

I created a timelapse video of the sketch for this piece, too. If it's something you want to see more of, please do let me know!

Saturday Sketch: Elf

Quick Saturday sketch on Ko-fi!

I've a few larger projects ongoing & little to share until they're more complete. I needed a break today, so here's a random elf that took maybe 30 mins total.


January Art Update

January has been a busy month. Between being a new year, starting new projects, spending a couple days recovering from a maybe-cold, and preparing my page on ko-fi (details on that, here), there ha…

Art Update for January 2020!

Art Update is up on the blog! For those following me on Twitter or through Ko-fi, there likely won't be anything new. Still, it's nice to see everything together. 😁

Next post will be about the changes I'm making to Ko-fi, so keep a lookout for that one in the next couple weeks!


2020 January 22: ToonMe Challenge

Decided to give the toonmechallenge a try, after seeing so many awesome and inspiring images from other artists. This was tough! It took a lot to remind myself that it's okay to finish it quickly and not to make it "perfect". It's not often I start and finish an art project in the same day.

Have you done one? Let me know in the comments. I'd love to see it, or even one you're seen that's your favourite!

Check out my work on Ko-fi!


Stay for a Coffee, and Maybe Buy Me One Too

Stay for a Coffee, and Maybe Buy Me One Too

Made a post on Ko-fi about some changes I'll be making as I prepare to start using Ko-fi Gold, to give fans more access to me and my process.

Here's an excerpt: Over the last few months I have been considering Patreon and Ko‑fi as options to give fans of my work more access to me as a creator. It has taken some consideration, and I have decided to go with... Ko-fi!

Maybe this isn't a surprise as my page has been accessible since October, but the current plan I'm using is Free. The change will be that I'm moving to Ko‑fi Gold, a subscription to both support Ko-fi's development and to give me access to a number of features that I can put to good use for those following and supporting my work.

I am aiming to be ready to go early February.

Any feedback is awesome! Please check out the link for the rest. :D
