Clip Studio Paint Digital Timelapse: Quick Raffle Sketch

Every month, current ko-fi supporters are entered in that month's draw. At the end of the month, a random winner gets a sketch of their choosing. February's winner requested a sketch of their favourite plant in a tree stump they carved out and prepared themselves!

The timelapse is up on Youtube and a little bit different from the style of my previous ones. I'd love to hear which type of timelapse you prefer so I know what to use in the future. :D

.:: About the Monthly Raffle ::.
When you buy me a coffee for $3 (USD) through ko-fi, you're automatically entered into that month's draw. March's draw will take place on April 1st, and winners can request a sketch from me of plants, pets, or even a character of their choosing, from a book, game, movie, or real life!

Check out my ko-fi page for examples, and be sure to support before the end of the month if you want to be in the next draw!

Has it been a month already? And it’s February now? What happened? Did last month seem to disappear for everyone else, too?

My art update for January is now live! There shouldn't be any surprises for those who have been keeping up with my ko-fi page, but it's nice to see a month's work all together in one place. ✨

Digital Art Timelapse: DTIYS Challenge

My latest timelapse video is now ready! I cannot promise I will create videos every week, but I can say that I aim to post 2 every month. Some months may have more, but my goal here is to create, enjoy doing it, and not get burnt out by pushing myself too much too soon.

Click here to view the video directly on Youtube.

Back in May, Pianta (Céli) created a Draw This In Your Style (DTIYS) Challenge on Instagram. I have been wanting to complete this challenge for a while now, and am glad to be able to show you my process for this piece. Watch as I go from sketch to final in this digital art timelapse in Clip Studio Paint.

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 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

At the Edge of the Star Ocean

I'm participating in Clip Studio Paint's 24th International Illustration Contest, and here is my entry. The theme for this contest is "Skies, Space and Stars".

My entry is highly experimental, containing no sketch or lineart visible in the final version. I chose a free, painted, unfinished look with a focus on detailing the areas I want viewer attention. Sharing this is intimidating, to be honest!

About the Image
Earth is all alone at the edge of space as the lights of long-forgotten moons slowly blink out. Where's there's hope, though, there's a chance. Maybe we're lucky enough to have someone watching out for us.

Created in Clip Studio Paint with minor touch-ups in Adobe Photoshop.

Check out my entry, here.

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 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.

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

.:: Image Details ::.
Size: 3000x4500px
Software: Adobe Photoshop CS
Created: August 24th, 2005

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.

So, for the entire month of May I will create a sketch for everyone that makes a donation on my Ko‑fi page during the month. For the donation of one coffee ($3 USD) you will get a sketch from me. Sketches will be in the style of the examples shown on this post. $3 USD will get you a lineart sketch, and I'll add colour to it for an extra coffee (a total of $6 USD.)

April 2020's Art Update ✨

Didn't think I would miss the April art update, did you? Certainly not me. I knew exactly what day it was today. 😎

Turns out I completed more artwork than I thought this month, though there's a fair bit on-the-go as well. Check out the blog for this month's accomplishments, details on what's to come, and supporter downloads on Ko-fi! 😁❤️

Iris Commission

A commission for my mother-in-law of her irises, part 1 and 2.

I enjoyed the process of this one and learned far more about these kinds of flowers than I ever thought I would. It was a welcome challenge to get them just right.

Image created fully in Adobe Fresco and making use of the live Watercolour Brush for some interesting effects!

The full quote between both images is: "Let us make our future now, and let us make our dreams tomorrow's reality." -Malala Yousafzai

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! ❤️

One Week Portrait: Day Four

Here's my work for day four.

I was supposed to have the blending done yesterday, and focus on details today. Instead, I have aimed to do both things to try and catch up. I managed to get my files off of my tablet and onto the PC, and combine multiple files to recover some of my work.

Blending with a mouse makes me really, really, really miss the tablet. This is about all I, and my wrist, feel up to today. I'll be looking for more tricks to mimic the look of using a pen, but also try to find some tricks to help it be easier for me to work with.

I can't believe I used to draw with a mouse in Photoshop all the time.

It's harder than I recall!
