Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

I am a mainly self-taught artist from Finland. I am currently finishing my architecture studies but I still aim to find time to create art on the side. I enjoy creating and appreciating art as a hobby but I also do take commissions and sell my art at conventions (in Finland).

I started off as a traditional artist but picked up digital techniques along the way and now I do both. My tools and techniques in both vary very much but I like to stick with watercolours and inks in the traditional side and with Photoshop CS6 (and my Wacom Intuos4) in the digital side.

My main inspirations are music; some of my pieces are heavily inspired by a certain song and some just purely illustrations of a song, nature; wildlife, sky, landscapes; other artists; mythology; video games.

DeviantART is still my main site but some of my artwork is uploaded exclusively on my Tumblr and/or Instagram. I also make occasional process videos on YouTube and stream my process. Nowadays I prefer to use Twitch for streaming.

I hope you like what you see here!

FAQ/art usage:
I do not take art trades, collabs, requests or point commissions.

Contact: If you have any questions about anything or just want to say hi feel free to contact me! I am quite busy with my studies and other things so I might not reply instantly. Also, even if my commissions are closed you can still ask me for a quote or if I would be willing to do something next time my commissions are open.

Finncon 15.7.2018 by ShadeofShinonHeads up! I'll be at Finncon's artist alley this Sunday! I'll be selling all kinds of artwork as usual. The con has free admission so if you're around come say hi!
Thank you for everyone who sent me a note regarding commissions! I have read the notes but my internet connection has been down since yesterday afternoon so managing things is a tad tedious at the moment. I will get back to everyone once the issue has been resolved!
Update: Corundum is all grown now and she's magificent!

I just got my first ever shiny in Pokemon GO and it HAPPENS TO BE MY FAVOURITE POKEMON AAAAAAAAAAAA
I'm super excited to get this beauty to the top. It couldn't have been a bigger and more pleasant surprise. She's my precious baby <3

Have you gotten any shinies in Pokemon GO? If not, which would you like to have?

Edit; 6.7.2018
Hello again! Since I cleared the previous commission list - one special commission contract aside - I'm now open to take some more. The drill is the same as before: send me a note or email titled "Commission" with the filled out form (found below and in my Commission Info. If I get a lot of commission inquiries I may have to either choose a few from them, close the commissions soon or if you are okay with being on a waitlist for future openings that can be done as well.


Name: (your name/username)
PayPal address: (the email address I send the invoice to)
Commission type: (A5 traditional bust, digital sketch etc.)
Visual references/any other image: (Mandatory! I don't work without visual references unless it's character design commission.)
Brief description of the idea/keywords: (The clearer the vision you give me the more likely you are to receive what you want. You can also give me free hands! Avoid overly long descriptions. Use clear language, don't write prose.)
Other: (Any other information or questions regarding the work.)

Looking forward to your notes!

Edit; 11.5.2018
Hey all! I was on a week long vacation and went on a trip to Madeira. It was fantastic, the island is amazingly beautiful and peaceful. Now I'm back in business and working on the remaining commissions. Since there seemed to be more people interestes than I was able to give slots to I was thinking about opening a waitlist.

Here's how it works. If you are interested in a commission you can note me with the commission form and I will put your commission request on the list. The commission won't be active, no payments or WIP's are due when your commission is on the waitlist. I can take commissions from the waitlist and complete them when I have time. When I decide that I can taka a commission I will note you and start the commission process.

Would you be interested in something like this? You can already note me if so, it counts as a yes. :D

Edit; 3.4.2018 I got a nice bunch of commissions this round so I'm closing commissions for now! I'm still open for inquiries and will likely open new slots as the current commissions are getting done. Thank you all commissioners!

With my commissions now open again I decided to make a proper waiting list that is more convenient for everyone.
I will keep updating this journal as I make progress with the commissions and if new ones come up.
If I end up taking a lot of commissions I may temporarily close the commissions until the list is clear and/or I have more time to take up new ones.
