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!
Tracon XI over - Art book and leftover sale!It feels as if I'd just written the previous aftermath journal last year and now I'm writing another one. The year has passed so fast I can't believe it. And so did Tracon. As usual I just sat at the artist's alley the whole time but I definitely don' mind because I really like it. It's always a pleasure to be there representing my art and myself as an artist, chatting with all kinds of people. This year was super fun and I'm really thankful for everyone who stopped by my table for a chat or to buy something. A HUGE thanks to you! You're the best!
This year I had more things to sell than previously and while many things sold out I still got some leftovers I'm selling here. The one you're probably looking forward to most is
