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!


Hey guys!
This time it's not me who's in need of money. Thank to everyone who has purchased something from me recently I've now solved my biggest problems. You have really, really helped. So thank you very much!

But my best friend is also in a tight spot. She has her commissions open at the moment. She's a great artist with a unique style. Canines are her bravura but she is very capable of drawing other creatures and even humans.
It would be most appreciated if you took a look at her commission info and if you're not able to commission her yourselves, hint your friends or reblog this post on Tumblr. 
Thank you!

As I was scrolling through some art of yours once again just now, I had the urge to tell you, that you are and will always be one of my most favourite artists. Here on dA, but also in general.
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you so much for taking your time to tell me this! It really made me so glad. It's always nice to hear that people like my art, but to be one of someone's favourites is something special.

I think it's cool that the first three Pokémon in your Emerald Nuzlocke team are the same as the first three in my Sapphire Nuzlocke team.:)
