Manweri's Profile Picture
Michelle Tolo
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United Kingdom
Hello, good people of planet Earth and beyond, and welcome to my deviantART gallery.

My name is Michelle, and I'm a Norwegian concept artist and illustrator. I studied Computer Graphic Art at the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark for 3 years, and it was an absolutely amazing place to be. Afterwards I worked a couple of years as a concept artist at MPC Advertising in London, which was a great experience. I am currently working as a freelance concept artist and illustrator.

I have a passion for fantasy art, though I like to explore as many different subjects as possible. If I'm not drawing or working, I can usually be found running around in the mountains with my dog, enjoying a good fantasy book, spending time with my wonderful friends, reading scientific articles, gaming all night, or drinking tea. I love tea. As in being perfectly capable of consuming 3 liters of it in a day, should I feel like it.

Regarding commissions: Feel free to contact me if you're interested in commissioning me. You can either send me a note here on dA, or send me an email at Be aware that I do not work for free, and this also includes "possible profit if a project succeeds".

That being said, I hope you will enjoy my work. Thank you for visiting :)

Where to find me around the web:


The Wailing Widows
The tragedy that caused the restless spirits of the Wailing Widows to haunt the living world has been lost in legend, but all know that an equally tragic fate awaits whoever is foolish enough to not hide from the Widows' never-ending search. 

Photoshop, January 2019.
FitzChivalry Farseer
Here is an attempt at illustrating an older FitzChivalry Farseer, from the wonderful Realm of the Elderlings series by Robin Hobb. Check out the books if you enjoy high fantasy with magic and great characters!

Photoshop, December 2018.

Other fan art I've done from the same series:

Fitz and Nighteyes:…
The White Prophet:…

Where to find me around the web:

A little fan art painting of one of my favourite characters, Ciri, from the Witcher universe. I love CD Project Red's take on her design (although I do have some issues with the high heels!), and I wanted to do a painting featuring her badass side :)

Photoshop, September 2018.

CDChallenge: Insect Warrior

This is my entry for this month's Character Design Challenge on Facebook, with the theme "Insect Warrior". I decided to use a fluffy moth as my reference for this character :) 

Prince Ermine of the Moth Kingdom is a fierce protector of his people, always in the frontline when battling enemies. Moths often fall prey to arachnids, and as their soft bodies are vulnerable, they trust their agility, weapons and poisons instead. Most moths also carry web dissolvers to get themselves and companions out of traps.

You can view the entry here:…

Photoshop, August 2018.


I finally got around to make myself an Instagram account, yay! I've just put some of my older work up there for now, but I intend to use it more for sketches etc.

So if you're on Instagram and would like to follow my work there, you can find me at the link above :) 
  • Listening to: Sonata Arctica
  • Reading: The Liveship Traders trilogy by Robin Hobb
  • Drinking: Tea! :D
