About me


Hi there, welcome! My name is Ishmam! I'm a freelance artist and have been uploading art for over 11 years. I got my start as a kid, doodling during class, drawing comics for friends, and making fan art of my favorite games and shows before I ever uploaded anything. Now, on deviantArt, I'm well known for my digital paintings and power portraits. I always have more art on the way, but while it's in the oven, I'd love if you had a look around my gallery. Enjoy.


I read and appreciate all the questions and feedback I get. Your support is the fuel that keeps me doing my best work and sharing my passion for all things art, through art. If you have an idea for something you'd like to see or work together on, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Some of my best work has come from collaboration.


If you like what you see in my gallery, you may also like the prints, stickers, and knick knacks that are available on my Redbubble shop or the full-resolution downloads available on my Gumroad. If you're interested, please have a look.


You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Ko-fi, Twitter, Tumblr, and Spotify as well. For business inquiries, please reach out here.


Thank you for visiting.

Dear Ishmam,

I request you to make a artwork of a 14 year old looking boy, with the following pokemon team :-

Lucario, Greninja, Charizard, Sceptile, Zeraora, Garchomp.

I will be looking forward for your reply. Hope you complete my wish and accept my request.

So are you going to one for Necrozma, Solgaleo, Lunala, and Ultra Necrozma? I am still waiting for them.

Your art is so beautiful and awesome!

Oh hey, thanks a lot for the watch. Your gallery is so bright and colorful, I have to take a closer look! <3

Hey, I really love your art style, especially your power portraits <3

Do you have tutorials or consider making one?
