April + May 2021 Art Update

Last update I left off with completing the Frozen painting for my niece. April turned into quite a busy month, with a slow-down in May to focus on a single project and take a small break. It also means I have a small backlog of items due to Ko-fi Supporters, and your patience is much appreciated!

Digital Art Timelapse: Mandala in Clip Studio Paint

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Here is the timelapse for my first mandala. I highly recommend viewing it on fullscreen, as the detail may become lost otherwise. 

If interested, please do like the video or even subscribe to my channel on youtube! Also, I would love to know what you think: If there’s anything I can do to improve these videos for you and provide a better experience, do let me know.

Thanks~!

Digital Art Timelapse: Elsa and Olaf from Frozen

Here is the timelapse for the gift for my niece, featuring characters from Frozen. It’s surprising to me how a month of working on a project—several hours during that time— can turn into a video that’s under 6 minutes in runtime. But I imagine that shorter timelapse is more accessible than expecting someone to sit through 5 hours of it!

I would love to know what you think! If there’s anything I can do to improve these videos for you and provide a better experience, do let me know.

It would also help tremendously to have this video shared, as more views mean that Youtube will show my video to more people overall. If you know someone interested in seeing the time-lapse of my work, please let them know. 😉

Thanks so much for your support!

February + March Art Update

February and March were busy months, but because I was working on creative projects and not necessarily completing them, there is not much to show for it. It feels as if I didn’t do much, though that’s not true. I have a fair bit to share in the next few days/weeks, all things I have been working on that are finally nearing the stage where I get to share them. I’m looking forward to it.

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. Let me know in the comments. 😀

My February + March 2021 Art Update will be ready in the next few days, and I’ll go into more detail about what I have been up to the last couple months. 🙂

January 2021 Art Update

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

I’ve been working on personal art projects, watching lectures about writing, writing, and some freelance design work. I’ve been keeping myself busy with some exciting projects, and I look forward to continuing to make progress on those.

Anyway, here is some of the art I have been working on this month. More works-in-progress can be found on my ko-fi page for supporters, for those who want more of a behind-the-scenes look at my process.

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.

Talizmyn’s 2020 Year-End Art Update: Part 1

Hi!

So.

As you may have noticed, I disappeared after my last post on June 9th.

My ability to create was, for a few months during the summer, shaky-at-best. I don’t need to detail the pandemic or quarantine or make vague allusions by calling the past few months these troubling times. We know. We all get it. It’s a rough time for all of us, and some more than others.

Let’s catch up, shall we?


Since my last Art Update, back in May 2020, I have been both procrastinating, dealing with burn-out, and discovering new ways to paint digitally. I’ve spent the last few months working on pet portraits, commissions, and other related work.
