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.

: 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.
