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!


Infinity prints

Edit; There are still three unclaimed Okami prints left. Grab yours before they run out! The total price with shipping is 10 euros (EU)/11 euros (rest of the world).
Be sure to check out the other prints in this journal as well!

Infinity by ShadeofShinon
The long-awaited Okami -Infinity prints are finally here and the quality is so good. Honestly I'd keep these all for myself just for the quality if I already hadn't promised to sell them.

So, in my poll I asked who would be interested in buying these. Some people even commented, which is good, and some prints have already been paid, which is even better. However, the number of comments/notes doesn't match the number of "I'd definitely buy one" votes so I'm not entirely sure if everyone is 100% serious about it. Anyway, I have 10 prints and below is the list of people who have contacted me and also whether or not the print has been paid for. If your name is not on the list and you want to buy a print comment on this journal or note me

- Furisuitaru (2 prints) [PAID]
- vaguelygenius
- Kaliaen [PAID]
- bolthound [PAID]
- morganzephyr
- wooqs [PAID]

Leftover prints, bookmarks and postcards

As stated before I have some leftovers from this year's cons that I would like to get rid of. The price of an A4 print is 5 euros, bookmarks and postcards are 2 euros each (3 bookmarks/5 euros, 6 bookmarks/10 euros and so forth).Shipping prices: Letter: EU 3€/other 4€ | A4: EU 5€/other 6€
