Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I am a mainly self-taught artist from Finland. Art is a great passion of mine, both creating and appreciating it. However I'm not going to make a career of it as I want to enjoy it as a hobby yet it will definitely remain a very important part of my life. However, I do take commissions and sell my art at conventions (in Finland).

As an artist I work both traditional and digital medias although I will always have a slight preference of traditional over digital but I still enjoy both very much. I also have a little comic project called the Nuzlocke Challenge.

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.
Music is another big interest of mine although that is limited to appreciation. I listen to a variety of genres but metal music is what I'm most fond of. I especially like to go to metal concerts and see my favourite bands live.

Even though I tend to forget the existence of the "Critique" option when I submit my pieces I always appreciate some constructive criticism. I enjoy reading long and thoughtful comments although sometimes my inbox tends to get very full and I might take some time to reply/don't have time to reply to every comment. I do read and appreciate each comment though.

deviantART is my main website and I mostly only upload finished artwork here. I also have an art Tumblr with the name shinonarts which I use to post not only the art I have here but also some other works, WIP's and sketches that never end up here.

I hope you like what you see here and if you have questions, something else to say or just want to say hi feel free to do so!


The first edition of my art book "Pokemon Reimagined" has officially sold out! Thank you so much to everyone who purchased one. I'm really happy about its success, being the first bigger publication of sorts I've done. I will definitely consider making a vol 2 at some point in the future when I have enough material. And maybe a second edition of the first one. This has been so cool and I'm really happy you guys liked it!
Just a heads up! While effectively cleaning up my to do -list I'm also participating Inktober this year with sketches of some of my favourite characters. You can follow the process on my Instagram and/or Tumblr!
"Pokémon Reimagined" art books are getting very limited! If you're interested in getting one now is the time to act because this is the last chance! If you can't get one right now we can discuss possibly reserving a book for the time needed. 


This is just a small announcement on what's going on and stuffs, mostly hiatus, art status, core membership running out and PRINT AND ART BOOK SALE. 

One of the things I wanted to talk about is that I will be taking an almost complete hiatus from dA as well as Tumblr and other social platforms until I have played Pokemon Sun and Moon. With the release date drawing closer it's increasingly hard to avoid spoilers because only a handful of people actually care enough to mark their spoilers somehow. I'm too wary to check my Tumblr or my dA feed at all because of the wild spoilers running at my face if I do so. 
The demo for S&M is going to be released on the 18th Oct so from then on until I get my games (note that Finland gets games later than the US) and actually get to play them spoiler free. So it'll be approximately a month.

I think I will be submitting things if I make anything though, but I just won't be checking my deviantions or other messages as frequently as I used to. Meanwhile with what free time I have left from schoolwork I will keep working on the commission list as well as my Nuzlocke update which has progressed a little. 

If there is anything critical you need to communicate with me now's a good time!

Another thing is that my sub is running out and it seems to be ending around the time Pokemon SM comes out so this last month is kinda utterly wasted. I'm still reluctant to pay for a new one so we'll see what happens with that.

And for the last thing, there are still two "Pokemon Reimagined" art books available! They're the last two and the future availability is a big question mark. Act now if you want one!
Other prints and things also have limited availability so make haste!

Tracon XI over - Art book and leftover sale!It feels as if I'd just written the previous aftermath journal last year and now I'm writing another one. The year has passed so fast I can't believe it. And so did Tracon. As usual I just sat at the artist's alley the whole time but I definitely don' mind because I really like it. It's always a pleasure to be there representing my art and myself as an artist, chatting with all kinds of people. This year was super fun and I'm really thankful for everyone who stopped by my table for a chat or to buy something. A HUGE thanks to you! You're the best!
This year I had more things to sell than previously and while many things sold out I still got some leftovers I'm selling here. The one you're probably looking forward to most is
Pokémon Reimagined ONLINE SALE
As I got books left from the con they are now available for online purchase!
The 40-paged booklet includes 21 of my Pokémon illustrations, and each piece is accompanied by a brief comment

We'll see at the end of November!

Moi Shinon! Nyt on taulu viimeinkin seinällä!
Ei juma, kesti hirmu kauan saada se ite kehys kun en millään halunnu maksaa hirveitä postikuluja ja ikeassa ei tuu niin usein käytyä. Lopulta serkku sit toi kehyksen, kun oli tyttöystävän kaa käyny muuttoshoppailuilla. MUTTA sitten piti tehä vielä omat sabluunat ja A2 kartonnin löytäminen oli yllättävän vaikeaa :/

Mut tosiaan tässä on ny se kuva lopputuloksesta;
ja mun tapetit on oikeesti hirveet nhghfghfhd ja sun kirjanmerkki on viel siin vieres kun vanha ei oo menny viel rikki

Aaa, niin mahtavaa nähdä toi seinällä! Ja tosi tyylikkäät kehykset. Noiden vähän ei-standardien kuvien kaa sabluuna ton kyl ongelma, mut niin hyvän näkönen lopputulos kyllä!
Kiitos paljon kun jaksoit laittaa tämän! Mukavaa piristystä päivään. :>
