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!


If anyone else is as pissed with the new "live notifications" feature as I am go to your Settings > General and turn off "Live notifications".… god was it really necessary to include also notifications for people VIEWING your profile? It would've been nice to at least limit which notifications you want to see live.
Somebody tag me with the fancy Nuzlocke tag so I will have an excuse to draw fancy Nessa an gijinka Gis.
Thank you so much for 7k watchers! The number keeps growing faster and faster, it feels like it wasn't that long ago when I hit 6k, haha. I'm planning to give you something in return later on. I'm going to hit a round number in pageviews very soon as well and once that happens I'll tell you more about my celebration plans!
Short notice but I'm having a late night art stream! I'm sketching a Giratina for a Pokemon community collab. Join me here:
Streaming newly announced Pokemon Sun and Moon Pokemon! Come join the hype or avoid if you don't want spoilers!


Here's the deal.

I'm planning to make a blind Nuzlocke run on Pokemon Sun and Moon when they're released. Blind run essentially means that you run it without knowing next to anything about the game. It makes the challenge more fun and challenging, too.

I've decided that I don't want to hear ANY spoilers about the games. I only know what the title legendaries look like and their names, the starters and their names and pretty much everything that was on the first trailer.

However, I don't want to hear about the legendary typings, or any other typings whatsoever, about the new mechanism (?) I was hinted to be wary with. Basically nothing that came after the first trailer.

If I suspect there is going to be a spoiler in your comments, links, anything, I will ignore it.

I'm super hyped about the game but I really want to experience everything as new as possible.The fact that Europe also gets the games 5 days later than the rest of the world doesn't help either. Because of the release dates I will most likely just disappear when the dates come closer.

It's going to be one hell of a task for me if I want to succeed, but I will try. Therefore I would greatly appreciate it if you could refrain from sharing info, thoughts, speculation about the games and thus ending up spoiling me.

Thank you for understanding!
