ShadeofShinon's Profile Picture
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!


"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 such an amazing and important piece of advice and I want you all to watch it: 


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 commentary on how I came to make such an interpretation of each Pokémon in both Finnish and English. 
There's a limited number of the booklets and I will take orders first come first serve. Because I don't know how quickly they will sell out I won't take reservations for longer than one week. If it seems there's enough for everyone I can reserve a copy for an extended time.

  • PRICE: The price of one booklet is 25€ (28USD) and the shipping expenses depend on your location. Inside Europe the shipping expenses are 13€ and outside of Europe it's 16€. PayPal transaction fee will be added to all prices and it's around ~1€.
  • CONTACT: To get one send me a NOTE here on dA with your PayPal address and location where you want it shipped and I will send you an invoice.
  • RESERVATIONS: At this point I will keep the booklet reserved for you for a week during which the payment has to be completed as I don't want to juggle too many reservations at the moment.
  • MAILING: Once the invoice has been accepted I will mail the booklet to the address you have provided.
This is your chance! Since there were leftovers it's unlikely that I will take another batch of the books for a while unless there is a HUGE demand. Act NOW!

General shipping/payment info

I accept only PayPal payments (suomalaisille mahdollista myös tilisiirto) and like with commissions I use PayPal invoices to carry out the payments. The payment will consist of three things:
  • The actual price of the picture. This depends on the size, the amount of work put into it and my personal feeling about the appropriate price.
  • Shipping fee. This depends on the size of the picture. When purchasing multiple pictures the biggest picture determines the shipping fee. More info about the shipping details below.
  • PayPal transaction fee. This individual fee is calculated using this calculator. The price is calculated from the price of the picture(s) purchased and the shipping fee.

I ship worldwide using the Finnish postal service. So far I have never lost a single shipment and any disruptions/delays have been minuscule. Shipments to other continents (than Europe) can take about two to three weeks but generally it is very fast and reliable.

I ship the paintings in as letters and they don't come with a tracking code. If you want you picture to be shipped with a tracking code please let me know. The tracking coded letters are more expensive and the price depends on the weight of the letter and the country it's shipped to. Rough estimate is from 10€ to 15€ (inside and outside of EU) but for larger shipments it can be around 20€.

I ship each picture in a well-protected envelope and with a plastic pocket to protect the painting. 
I ship the purchased picture(s) as soon as the payment has been complete. If there are more pictures purchased by different people at the same time I try to wait until I can mail everything at the same time.

Original paintings

Also check out the originals that are for sale!
Pokemon paintings for sale! UPDATE + new extrasEdit4; A new list update! I sold some paintings at Tracon but there are still some left. There are some new extras like bookmarks, cards and prints you can get when you purchase originals. Check them out!
Edit3; The list has been updated again. Also note that the prints and bookmarks are also running out! I believe there's only one Yveltal, Groudon and Kyogre left! Act quick!
Edit2; I realized I only have one more A4 painting left so I decided to make A4 prints available for smaller originals as well. Please note that even if you purchase an A5 or smaller painting and choose a print instead of a bookmark the shipping costs will be calculated according to the larger item, in this case: the print. Extra prints/bookmarks are still possible to get for a low price if you wish. Getting them separately is also fine!
Edit; Sorry for the spam! I was sorting out my drawers a bit and I found a bunch of old prints and bookmarks. There's only a handful of them and I don't really want to try to sell
