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.

May 2020 Ko-fi Special

Ko-fi Promo

There May Be A Birthday

It's May and this month, I'm doing something special on Ko-fi!

My 35th(!) birthday is at the end of this month and I want to give something back to everyone able to support me through ko-fi. So, for the entire month of May I will create a sketch for everyone that makes a donation on my Ko‑fi page during the month. For the donation of one coffee ($3 USD) you will get a sketch from me. 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.)

Talizmyn’s April Art Update

We’re at of the end of April in the year that has been a thousand-year blink. It is a vast expanse of time that has vanished between breaths. I see the work I have done over the last few mont…

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! 😁❤️


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.

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!

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.

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.

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

2020 January 17

Those who create art and use kofi or Patreon, which do you prefer and why? I don't need to know what's "better" since it's subjective but getting an idea of what works for people using either platform would be helpful.

I want to use one of them... I know I don't have a lot of followers yet: under 100 between Instagram, Wordpress, Twitter and other social medias.

But it feels like a big decision to make. Like I need to get it right.

I'm more familiar with using Patreon in the subscriber side, but Ko-fi's options appeal as a creator.

I guess the next question is: what do fans prefer, too? Which perform do you prefer your favourite creators use?
