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.
2020 December: Thievens the Orc
A Christmas gift for my husband of his Orc Rogue from World of Warcraft.
2020 December: Opal the Chihuahua
I can finally share this one! A commission that was a gift for Christmas, of a cute pup named Opal. :D
2020 December: Henry the Dog
A Christmas gift for my sister and her husband, of their dog Henry.
2020 December: Addie the Havanese
A Christmas gift for my parents of their dog Addison (or Addie). Along with Toby and Boots, this now includes all of their dogs. :D
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 September 10: Shiba Inu
Completed pet portrait of a Shiba Inu named Riko, commissioned by someone from FP! Thanks for commissioning me and allowing me to paint such a cutie. :D
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
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.

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!
