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

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.

Image created using Adobe Photoshop and Fresco.

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! ❤️

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!

Details of New Artwork

Finished up some new artwork yesterday, which I have been using for cover photos and promotional materials. The full image is up on Ko-fi!

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.

Check out more of my work on ko-fi!


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!

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

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!


2019 December 10

I play The Sims 4 a lot, and have been a fan of the franchise since the original Sims game. It might be a bit of an obsession. (Spoiler: It definitely is.)

One thing I never did, though, was create fanart for the series. Until now... I have an adorable fourth generation half-alien human hybrid, named Izola Chevron. Her adorableness has inspired me to create sort of a "profile card" for her. She's missing a trait, as she's not yet a young adult, but that will get filled in later.

This was a fun exercise. I may need to attempt a couple more, for good measure.

2019 December 31 Sailor Moon Eternal Fan Art

A digital work featuring Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon. To date, this is probably the most complex piece I have created. I'm really happy with how this turned out. :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!
