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.

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.
Digital Art Timelapse in Clip Studio Paint | Character Portrait
Digital art timelapse created in Clip Studio Paint of my husband's orc rogue from World of Warcraft. Watch me go from sketch to finished painting in significantly less time than it took me to actually paint this digital portrait!
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
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.

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.
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 .
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.
May 2020 Ko-fi Special
Talizmyn published a post on Ko-fi.com
There May Be A Birthday
It's May and this month, I'm doing something special on Ko-fi!
My 35th(!) birthday is at the end of this month and I want to give something back to everyone able to support me through ko-fi. 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.)
Check out the blog for details!

Art and Updates for April 2020
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! 😁❤️
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!

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. 😁

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!

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.
