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 also have a Weasyl account (Shinon) but I'm quite inactive there.

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!

Moi! Kaikki sinun artti on tosi kaunista ja inspiroivaa, oon ihastellut sitä jo jonkin aikaa joten olen otettu watchista. :')
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Kiitos paljon! Mukava kuulla. :>

For my Pokemon I would have:

Female Vaporeon
Female Nine tails
Female Mightyena
Female Noivern
Female Milotic

But choosing teams is difficult
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That's a neat list but what's the context of this? No offense, I do like to hear people's preferences but I'm a little bit confused.
Also, I agree, choosing teams is very difficult. I have at least 20 Pokemon I like a lot and my top 6 changes constantly.

I just wanted share
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay, that's fine. It just came so out of nowhere
:') but yeah, cool list.

I know you're in the middle of moving right now so no commissions, but could I possibly pay ahead of time? I've always loved your art, (for about three years now--been lurking around so its probably time to follow you lol) but I have the money now so I trust if I pay now you'll still remember when you do them again. Is that okay with you?
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry, I haven't had access to internet until now (and it's just free public wifi, still waiting for a connection for my apartment) and this message has been buried under others for some time.
Anyway, paying ahead is absolutely fine. I was planning to open commissions again as soon as I got internet anyway so I might as well take your commission now. I have a few others I've promised to do as soon as I'm able to so it's okay. If you're still interested, note me for details. Also, I'm only able to take digital commission for now, that's the only restriction.

Its no problem and awesome, thanks! i'll note you in just q moment then!

ShadeofShinon  I love your art, I've browsed it many times before and today I was so impressed that I had to create a profile for the sole purpose of asking if you would commission an Image of my team! I will even buy it to make a poster if possible!
