JWW 2023 Calendar: July

a_ref_july23
It is good to notice at this point how I, once again, mixed up the words "June" and "July". I wrote "July" into the cover picture of the previous blog post, which of course should've said "June". I get these two words mixed up in a regular basis, and I think I've even had to bring up this issue sometime in one of my earlier blog post...

HOW I BECAME MY OWN HERO

a_feature_hero
Ever since my official career as an artist started, I've wanted to create this drawing. Jasu Wonder World company was registered on 11th of October which, funnily enough, is only one day after the birthday of Naruto Uzumaki, a fictional character that this blog post is going to be all about. Years ago, around the age of 17, I started following a Ja...

NEW ARTIST PROFILE PICTURE

app_feature
I've been thinking of creating a new artist profile picture for almost a year now. I don't exactly know where I got the time to work on it but above all I'm happy that it's finally done. Without further elaborating on my busy schedule, let me offer you the work-in-progress material of this new artist profile picture. At first my plan...

I FORGOT TO POST THESE LAST YEAR

santa_wip_feature
It's been a year since I created a design for Jasu Wonder World Christmas t-shirt and I suddenly came to realize that I never posted the work-in-progress pictures of that particular painting! Better late than never is one of my favorite quotes so here we go: From the very first sketch to the finished design that then got printed on t-shirts. I...

THE CREATION OF THE CALENDAR ILLUSTRATIONS

calendar_wip_feature
To make life easier for all of us, I decided to put all the work-in-progress pictures of the calendar illustrations into the same blog post. These illustrations were a lot of fun for me to paint, especially for the reason that they were very simple (considering my usual creations). Finishing one of these illustrations took me approximately 4-7...

PENCIL PORTRAIT - COMMISSION PROGRESS

pencil_portrait_feature
It's been a while since I got a chance to create a pencil portrait. With this commission, I greatly enjoyed adding all the details as precisely as I could. For the first time ever I got to draw a person that was old enough to have some wrinkles on their face and it really was a fun challenge to draw them! Also, I'm very happy and pleased to notice ...

MORE OFFICIAL VIEW ON TRACON

Feature-21
Even after starting "My Wonderful Artist Life Comic Diary", I decided to keep making these traditional blog posts every now and then to give you people a "more official" view on things, since the comic diary tends to be not-too-serious kind, offering my own artistic view on things. So, today I kindly present you: Tracon, 8.-10.8.2017 Above a couple...

TWO EVENTS IN ONE POST

Feature-17
 It's been three weeks since Ropecon, and a week since I returned from Worldcon. That's plenty of time to recover enough to finally write something about those two events which both took place in Helsinki, at Expo and Convention Centre. Honestly, it feels to me that Ropecon was a little warm-up before "the real deal", Worldcon. The three days ...

IT TURNED OUT EVEN CUTER THAN I EXPECTED!

Feature-4
Sure, my plan was to make this commission a cute one. That's what the client wanted after all. But somehow, the way this little fellow turned out has even more of cuteness than I intended. Needless to say, I'm very happy with this painting of mine and I hope the client is going to like it as much as I do. Then, of course, the work-in-progress pictu...

A SONG TO THE MOON - COMMISSION PROGRESS

15_feature
One of the most pleasant commissions I've ever received! Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it. The instructions I got from the client for this painting were: wolf, forest, full moon, blue ...

Digital illustrations

I have a handful amount of videos. I always try my best to record the unfolding of a painting, or the process of making a painting. unfortunately most of my work is time consuming, therefore, sharing it as speed videos or time-lapses is so far the best way for me to share my work process with you guys.  Watercolor painting time-lapse - Aurora ...

Commissions

Commissions
The commissioner wanted me to create "Alice in Wonderland"-themed drawing for their friend. The man in the drawing had to resemble one of her original characters and there were a few items the commissioner wanted to include into the artwork, but everything else I could decide on my own as long as the drawing would maintain its theme. Below you'll f...

THE STORY OF FABRIC BAGS

Feature-10
I was supposed to create two designs for fabric bags that I would start selling. However, I got too excited with my ideas, planning super-detailed designs that could not be used for their original purpose. I even ended up actually drawing one of them before I realized it was way too complex for the small fabric bags (see some demonstration pictures...

A HEALTHY PORTION OF SEBASTIAN

Since my previous blog destroyed itself, I decided to put all the recent Sebastian work-in-progress pictures into one single blog post. It can clearly be seen how there's something happening to the happy world of the young giraffe boy. I don't go into the details because I want to keep the storyline as much of a secret as possible. When the story i...
