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. 🙂

Ko-fi Intro Video

One thing that I have wanted to set up for ko-fi was an intro video. I didn’t want to believe that at first, though.

When I started up my ko-fi page, posting a video was an impossibility. The option to link a video was there, of course, and was encouraged by ko-fi. It was impossible because of me. I didn’t know anything about video editing, and I was okay with that. Why would I even want to be in a video, anyway? Honestly, though, I wanted to have a video. (Welcome to Denial.) Still, I told myself I didn’t want or need one: making something like that, and being “okay” with it going up, was just not possible.

Except, last month, I considered it again and it was much less frightening. (It was still scary, but not the impossible kind.) I learned how to use Adobe Premiere Pro, video editing software, in December, so that I could put together timelapses of my work and share them on Youtube. Suddenly it wasn’t impossible anymore and seemed considerably less daunting. The only difference with this video is that I would be talking about me and what I do, directly, rather than about something I made.

So, here it is. I did it.

Enjoy!

Check out the video for details on who I am, why I do what I do, and an explanation of my supporter rewards on ko-fi. I would imagine many following this blog are aware of these things already, or perhaps you may learn something new. I’ve included some details from the video below to make accessing the important information easier.

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.

Digital Art Timelapse in Clip Studio Paint

Thievens. Digital. December 2020.

In my last post, I shared a bunch of my recent work from this year. One of those works was a gift for my husband, of his World of Warcraft orc rogue, Thievens. 

While creating this portrait, I experimented with recording my screen through OBS Studio and using Skillshare to learn how to use Premiere Pro for video editing. These projects and courses have certainly kept me occupied the last few months, and I’m happy to now have something to show for it. 

I can finally share my first Youtube video with you, a timelapse of this orc portrait done in Clip Studio Paint and finalized in Photoshop.

Enjoy!
