2021 January 04: DTIYS Challenge

For some months now, I've admired the art of aepoyi on Instagram (the original can be found here) and wanted to work on their 10k Draw This In Your Style Challenge. Thankfully, there was no time limit on it, so I could work on that now that I *finally* had time (and motivation).⁠

I was surprised at how challenging to work with such saturated colours as I tried to find a balance. It was certainly an adventure! I enjoyed the practice and can't wait to do another.⁠

Digital Art Timelapse in Clip Studio Paint | Character Portrait

Digital art timelapse created in Clip Studio Paint of my husband's orc rogue from World of Warcraft. Watch me go from sketch to finished painting in significantly less time than it took me to actually paint this digital portrait!

2020 October 06: Mango

Finished my latest pet portrait commission of this small gentleman, Mango. He's so cute! I'm glad that I got the chance to paint this pup, and had a tonne of fun doing it too. Created with Clip Studio Paint and Adobe Photoshop.

2020 August 25: Toby

A digital painting of my parents' Havanese, Toby. Created in Clip Studio Paint with text and colour adjustments added in Adobe Photoshop

Trying something new this summer, with a more realistic style of painted portraits. Really enjoying the process and learning better and more efficient ways to paint both human hair and dog fur.

I could do more on this (I always can!), but I will leave this as is and call it complete. I'm happy with it, and it does look like Toby! :3

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? ;)

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.)

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!

Stay for a Coffee, and Maybe Buy Me One Too

Talizmyn published a post on Ko-fi.com

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 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!
