About me

Hi there, welcome! My name's Ishmam. I'm a freelance artist who's been uploading art for over 11 years. I got my start as a kid doodling in class, drawing comics for friends, and making fan art of my favorite games and shows before ever uploading anything. Now, on deviantArt, I'm best 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. Please enjoy.

Oh and, by the way, 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, and 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. 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. Have a look if you're interested!

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

Thank you for visiting!

Hello! Iwanted to know if it's possible to use one of your art (Gardevoir | Moonblast) for a livestream wallpaper? I'm helping my bf to find some good picture (and free use) so if it's okay I'll show him that. :)

Thanks in advance!

Hi there, are you still selling your pokemon artworks on redbubble? I couldn't see them on there

Hello! I am! However, some may be missing due to recent copyright claims by the Pokemon Company, which I must oblige. Perhaps I can get the art to you another way - I'll send you a note!
