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!

I just recently hit 300,000 pageviews and I've been wanting to do a request stream for a while now so this is the perfect excuse for one. So, tomorrow at 6pm GMT+1 (Italian time) I will start streaming the requests. Please read the rules, otherwise you'll get nothing.

In order to get a request drawn, post a comment with your request under this journal AND show up in the stream. I will explain this further so keep reading.

Post your request in a comment under this journal.
You need to simply write down your request, just one (1) and references to the character you want me to draw (unless they are my own characters). This time I will only draw one character each. This also applies to stuff like certain Pokemon, other video game characters etc. It will save me time when I don't need to look up references and they are neatly in one place. Saving time makes sure that more of you receive a request. I won't accept written descriptions as reference.

Nothing too complex.
I will only draw up to two characters that are not too complex. Also, if the request is anything similar to this:… consider it not done. I will not draw pictures with background. The way I'll draw the requests is similar to these:
5K Requests by ShadeofShinon
I will  also limit the time I use for each request because previously I noticed I easily start working too long on something. I will have a 30 min limit for each request.

Show up in the stream.
In order to get your request drawn you will have to show up in the stream. Otherwise I will ignore your request. This is because otherwise I think I'll get too many requests to complete and it won't be fair to those who come to the stream and want to see their request being drawn.
I'll go through the requests in order and I will ask if the person who requested is present. If so, I will do the request. If not, I will move on to the next one and ask again later. 

No second rounds (meaning no second requests)!
This also applies if you received a request last time. You can still post your request here, but I will skip them as long as I have requests for people who didn't get one last time. If I manage to complete all requests for people who previously didn't receive one I will make a second round to go through the skipped requests. This is only if I have time though.

I will try to draw as many requests as I can but I can't promise I can do everything.
I might continue drawing some other day if I feel like it but don't count on it.

You don't need to request anything if you don't want to. You're welcome to just come there and chill!

See you there! Saturday 28th 6pm GMT+1!

... God, you surprised me so much when I saw my message stack XD I'm so used to your Absol avatar, I was like WTF when I saw the new one XD

Anyway, this one is really cool (Thorn is cool anyway)

No wonder, I had that icon for like 5 years. I think I tried to change it at some point but dA didn't let me so I was like"fuck it" and didn't try again until now. Let's see how much confusion this causes.
