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? ;)

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!

Details of New Artwork

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!

I've been working on this one over the month of February so far, between commissions. This is an original character of mine and part of another project I'm working on.

Check out more of my work on ko-fi!


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.


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!

Talizmyn on Ko-fi!

For those who don't yet know, I post semi-regularly on Ko-fi and am currently striving to save up for a better tablet than the one I currently use. (You can read more about my goal on my ko-fi page.)

I use the platform to share early or in-progress versions on my work, likelt the one attached here, whether it be sketches, screenshots of photo editing, writing, and more. I use a combination of InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Lightroom for my creations, and have recently began to focus on digital art. (Which has always been a passion of mine, but I have been too afraid to persue it.)

I use ArtFlow on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to create my digital work, and finish it up on PC using Adobe Photoshop CC.

Those interested should definitely check it out. I would love feedback on what you like, what you want to see more of, and any suggestions you may have for what i could share in the future. It's all greatly appreciated.

Want to see more of my work in the wild? I have more links to galleries, portfolios, and shops in my Links page, or check out my linktr.ee!


2020 January 06: Guardian Shadu

First completed work of the year!

This one is a gift for my husband of his Guild Wars 2 Charr, the Guardian Sergeant Shadu.

This is my first time drawing Charr and they have teeth everywhere. xD It got easier when I realized the face reminds me of the dragons of the Eastern dragons of folklore. This may be the first time I have worked on armour, too... didn't turn out too badly if I do say so myself.

Check it out on Ko-fi!
