Boots the Dog: Gift for Father's Day

Finished a gift for my father, for Father's Day, of our dog, Boots.

Boots stayed with my parents when I moved away, and is eleven years old as of last month. This is a painting of her from when she was four or five years old. I used a photo of mine as reference.

I started early to give myself tonnes of time and ended up finishing it over a week early. Oops! I can't share it with my father just yet, but I'm happy with how this turned out and need to share it somewhere.


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.

Check out the challenge here: http://twitter.com/FallNSkye/status/1265828268101550080

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

Created in Adobe Fresco.

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.


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!

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!
