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 ship worldwide using the Finnish postal service. So far I have never lost a single shipment and any disruptions/delays have been minuscule. Shipments to other continents (than Europe) can take about two to three weeks but generally it is very fast and reliable.
I ship the paintings in as letters and they don't come with a tracking code. If you want you picture to be shipped with a tracking code please let me know. The tracking coded letters are more expensive and the price depends on the weight of the letter and the country it's shipped to. Rough estimate is from 10€ to 15€ (inside and outside of EU) but for larger shipments it can be around 20€.
I ship each picture in a well-protected envelope and with a plastic pocket to protect the painting.
I ship the purchased picture(s) as soon as the payment has been complete. If there are more pictures purchased by different people at the same time I try to wait until I can mail everything at the same time.
The shipping price depends on two factors: location where the picture is to be shipped and the size of the picture.
