Over 40 Seals in One Painting - A Commissioned Watercolor Painting

 In summer 2020 I got to create this very detailed watercolor painting with more than 40 seals in it! Definitely one of those paintings that properly test my patience. The original size of this commission was A2 (59,4 x 42 cm) and the client had a few specific things she wanted included into the painting. Some examples of these are t...

The first artwork I made in 2022; dog portrait commission with not just one but two furry friends; Finnish Lapphund and Samoyed.  It turns out I forgot to take pictures of the sketches but here are photos of the painting process. The Samoyed was so much more challenging to paint than the Lapphund because of its white fur. The reference ph...

It's been 7 months since the completion of this commission, and finally Jasu is here to share it on her blog! This commission was another pet portrait, but this time it wasn't just facial portrait but I got to paint the whole cat and a pretty detailed background as well!Without further ado, let's get to the creation process of this painting! H...

It's been forever since I published a blog post! Tells you how busy I've been. But now that I got all the calendar illustrations finished, I finally have time to do something on this blog as well. This time I'm going to share a commission I created at the end of May, but which I kept as a secret until now (because of the commissioner's request...

So far all the card commissions I've got have been very fun to create! What makes them especially fun in my opinion, is that they're small scale artworks and take less time to finish, thus, they don't really require much patience. In other words; they're easy. :'D This wedding card I created last year. I got to create it based on my own vision...

Last summer I was commissioned a logo for an online store. The client wanted it done digitally, which I was delighted about since I very rarely get to do such commissions. The idea of the logo was to have a portrait of a faunus lady, vaguely resembling the face of the commissioner. Foresty tones, such as different greens and browns,&...

This post is all about a commissioned watercolor painting I created in the beginning of summer. Before starting to work on the painting, I showed the client the cat portrait I had made a year ago. She liked the composition and we agreed I'd make this portrait in a similar way. The client had a list of certain plants that she wan...

The first time I got to create a digitally colored drawing as a commission! I mean, I do love watercolors but it was nice to do something a little different. Painting with watercolors is after all, to me, the most time (and brain-energy) consuming way of creating art. This cheerful fox was a custom design for a birthday card. The cli...

Nine rats living in a fantasy forest; the most detailed large-scale painting I've ever done so far. The painting process took me about one and a half months from start to finish, though I should point out I did not work on this commission full-time. I also had other tasks and projects that I worked on during that time....

While I was still working on my biggest single watercolor painting commission (a blog post about that will be up later on), I created this simple custom wedding card for a family member. It was nice to make something small and simple after spending so much time on the big commission. The only instruction I got for this wedding card w...
