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 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.

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

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS

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
