At the Edge of the Star Ocean

I'm participating in Clip Studio Paint's 24th International Illustration Contest, and here is my entry. The theme for this contest is "Skies, Space and Stars".

My entry is highly experimental, containing no sketch or lineart visible in the final version. I chose a free, painted, unfinished look with a focus on detailing the areas I want viewer attention. Sharing this is intimidating, to be honest!

About the Image
Earth is all alone at the edge of space as the lights of long-forgotten moons slowly blink out. Where's there's hope, though, there's a chance. Maybe we're lucky enough to have someone watching out for us.

Created in Clip Studio Paint with minor touch-ups in Adobe Photoshop.

Boots the Dog: Gift for Father's Day

Finished a gift for my father, for Father's Day, of our dog, Boots.

Boots stayed with my parents when I moved away, and is eleven years old as of last month. This is a painting of her from when she was four or five years old. I used a photo of mine as reference.

I started early to give myself tonnes of time and ended up finishing it over a week early. Oops! I can't share it with my father just yet, but I'm happy with how this turned out and need to share it somewhere.

2020 June 02: FallNSkye's DTIYS Challenge Entry

FallNSkye on Twitter hosted a DTIYS Challenge for reaching 1k followers, and here is my version of their original (linked below). Created using mostly Clip Studio Paint with a dash of Photoshop.

Check out the challenge here: http://twitter.com/FallNSkye/status/1265828268101550080

2020 May 22: Raffle Prize for Morisato_Reshu

My art raffle ended in late April, and this month I get to work on getting those raffle prizes ready for the winners! Here is the third and final prize. :D

This one is for Morisato_Reshu on Twitter, of their eastern dragon Jensina.

I had a lot of fun with this. It has been a while since I have drawn an anthro of any kind, and the design of this character is really interesting. I loved recreated the glowing markings.

Throwback Thursday: Dancing with... from Aug 2005

An image featuring a character from a personal project, named "Rae". (I have redrawn this character recently, and that version is linked below.)

I loved created characters, designing their outfits, and using bright and vibrant colours. I also did a good shop at hiding feet and simplifying hands wherever possible.

Drawn by hand, scanned, and coloured with a mouse in Photoshop. I also made good use of the brushes at my disposal, as seen in the grass. That's a brush... xD

Size: 3000x4500px
Software: Adobe Photoshop CS
Created: August 24th, 2005

2020 May 12: Raffle Prize for Lucipop_90

My art raffle ended in late April, and this month I get to work on getting those raffle prizes ready for the winners!

Two down, one to go! ;3

This one is for Lucipop_90 on Twitter, of their blood elf from World of Warcraft. Her name is Velariah. This one was a challenge! Armour is especially tricky, and I definitely need more practice in this area. Studying is ahead! :D

2020 May 12: The Rose Umbrella

The Rose Umbrella

As the story goes, The Rose Umbrella is a former priestess who wanders the fields of forgotten souls, the space between life and death. She collects the lost spirits as she walks, giving shelter from a world of abandonment. When recovered, the souls are released to flourish in perfection. A rose.

In an ancient telling, however, it is said The Rose Umbrella is a demon that feeds on the souls of the forgotten dead. As she harvests the souls it is said she has no need for blood... and so the roses fall as she makes her away across the fields of battle.

That last one couldn't be true though, right?

Image is based on a recurring dream. I've had this dream multiple times since news of the pandemic and quarantine arose, and always awaken with a sense of dread despite the beauty in what I'm seeing. There's something just beneath the surface.

Created in Adobe Fresco with touch-ups in Adobe Photoshop.

2020 May 04: Raffle Prize for FallNSkye

My art raffle ended in late April, and this month I get to work on getting those raffle prizes ready for the winners!

One down, two to go. ;D

This one is for FallNSkye on Twitter, of their druid named Kira. I hope I did her justice! It was a challenge to work in more pastel colours, as I tend to go for more saturated ones overall. xD

Created in Adobe Fresco.

Sketches will be in the style of the examples shown on this post. $3 USD will get you a lineart sketch, and I'll add colour to it for an extra coffee (a total of $6 USD.)

Art and Updates for April 2020

April 2020's Art Update ✨

Didn't think I would miss the April art update, did you? Certainly not me. I knew exactly what day it was today. 😎

Turns out I completed more artwork than I thought this month, though there's a fair bit on-the-go as well. Check out the blog for this month's accomplishments, details on what's to come, and supporter downloads on Ko-fi! 😁❤️


Iris Commission

A commission for my mother-in-law of her irises, part 1 and 2.

I enjoyed the process of this one and learned far more about these kinds of flowers than I ever thought I would. It was a welcome challenge to get them just right.

Image created fully in Adobe Fresco and making use of the live Watercolour Brush for some interesting effects!

The full quote between both images is: "Let us make our future now, and let us make our dreams tomorrow's reality." -Malala Yousafzai

New Tablet and Ko-fi Goal

Two weeks ago, during the One Week Portrait Challenge, I wrote about how my tablet broke on Wednesday: midway through the challenge. When that happened, after I spent a bit of time panicking, my hu…

With a new tablet I now have so many more opportunities available to me, that were closed off with my old tablet. The Android system was limiting in a way my new Microsoft Surface is not. I'm excited to create with it, and have access to programs previously beyond my reach.

One such program is Clip Studio Paint, which is available on Windows or Mac OS. I have updated my Ko-fi goal to reflect that I'm now saving up for the Ex version, which will give me full access to the program and all of its features.

Along with fueling my iced tea addiction, all support through Ko-fi now goes toward the new goal. 😁

Check out the blog for more details.

Thanks! ❤️

One Week Portrait: Day Four

Here's my work for day four.

I was supposed to have the blending done yesterday, and focus on details today. Instead, I have aimed to do both things to try and catch up. I managed to get my files off of my tablet and onto the PC, and combine multiple files to recover some of my work.

Blending with a mouse makes me really, really, really miss the tablet. This is about all I, and my wrist, feel up to today. I'll be looking for more tricks to mimic the look of using a pen, but also try to find some tricks to help it be easier for me to work with.

I can't believe I used to draw with a mouse in Photoshop all the time.

It's harder than I recall!

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!

Trials in Creative Productivity

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.

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.)
