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 White Prophet

Fan art based on the wonderful Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb. The White Prophet, or the Fool, is one of the most intriguing and mysterious characters I have encountered so far in literature, so I had to give a shot at portraying him.

I can strongly recommend Robin Hobb's books to anyone who enjoys beautifully written fantasy with great character driven plots (not to mention emotional roller coasters!).

Curses and Mysteries

Some mysteries and crimes are of the magical sort, and that is when specialized mage detectives are hired. Nellie is one such mage, being exceptionally inquisitive by nature. She makes a living of solving everything from monster infestations and ancient curses, to finding that annoying fairy that keeps messing with people’s shoelaces. As a helping hand and guard, she hired Brahn; a simple, efficient and somewhat moody orc. Their friendship may not be of the most amicable kind, but they work well enough together and watch each other’s back.

This is a personal project I’ve had fun with lately, striving to tell stories through design. I did a few rough sketches showing the characters in typical everyday scenarios as well, which was very helpful to learn more about them. You can see more of these two characters on my ArtStation page:…

Dragon Tarn

"Once a day, the dragon would make its way to the tarn to drink from the icy waters. For desperate souls, it was the best place to go seeking its counsel."

Personal piece, having some fun with dragons and lighting :)

You can see some WIPs of this painting on my ArtStation:…

Hel is the goddess of death in Norse mythology. She watches the place where all those who do not die in battle go after death.

The Bachelor film I worked on together with a wonderful team at the Animation Workshop is finally released! So if you're in the mood for some laughter, tears and a lot of cookies, then check out Grandma's Hero!

I did mostly backgrounds and compositing on the project, as well as handling the colour script and designing the dragon :)

Hei på deg🤗 For det første er bildene dine helt fantastiske! For det andre lurte jeg på om du maler på bestilling, og i såfall hvor mye du tar sånn ca for en ganske detaljert illustration?

Takk skal du ha! Jeg har sendt deg en note angående illustrasjoner :)
