Wedding Portrait - Commission (wip)

a_wed_feature
​This painting took me surprisingly little time considering it was A2-sized. But then again, the commissioner wished the painting to remain rather simple and wanted the surroundings of the couple to be blurry. So, at the end, the only places where I really needed to pay attention were the faces of the two people, and their upper bodies. As can...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - December (wip)

a_dec_feature
  The stare of this wolf became just as captivating as I wanted to! Also, the bright red roses together with the dark gray and blue tones of the wolf gave this painting an atmosphere exactly as I imagined it. Obviously, I'm very happy about the way this illustration turned out. Though, I don't think this calendar has a single illustration that...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - November (wip)

a_nov_feature
Long time no (painting) horses! But now, here's one for you. I must admit all I can think of when it comes to horses is my upcoming first-of-its-kind Jasu Wonder World comic which is full of horses! If you haven't heard about this future comic yet, I warmly recommend to check out my Instagram . You'll find some sketches of Alex and Roberta, a young...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - October (wip)

a_oct_feature
Now that I have painted my first swan, I came to realize that when it comes to birds, I've mostly been drawing and painting owls exclusively. This painting became generally more blue than I planned but once I was finished I actually liked it more this way. I intended to make the painting more gray but I think it might've made the atmosphere too mel...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - September (wip)

a_sep_feature
Yet again, the first time for me to paint an animal: This time a mouse. I did a little dive into the anatomy of a mouse before starting to work on this painting and for some reason I found it very fascinating how thin and tiny legs they have. Mouses look like fluffy balls of fur on four little sticks. That said, enjoy this little bal...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - July (wip)

a_featurejuly
This is the first domestic cat painting I've created during my career as an artist of Jasu Wonder World. I almost can't believe it took nearly two years for this to happen. And now I'm actually planning on painting some more domestic cats in the not-so-distant future. But, about that I will tell you more only when/if this particular plan gets ...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - June (wip)

a_featurejune
  Halfway there! (even though, at the time this post is being published I'm almost done with all the illustrations)  The original being only A4-sized and the painting itself being relatively simple, this bunny took me surprisingly long time to finish (10-12 hours). The flowers around her were the most time-consuming. However, I became fas...

Jasu Wonder World Calendar 2019 - May (wip)

a_feature_may
One more finished, 7 more to go! Honestly, I didn't think it would take this long for me to create these illustrations. That's why, starting this week, I'm setting some other projects aside until I have all the months finished. I like having multiple things going on at once but now I'm simply falling behind schedule so badly that I need to do somet...

NEW ARTIST PROFILE PICTURE (work-in-progress)

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...

PORTRAITS OF A SHETLAND SHEEP DOG - COMMISSION IN PROGRESS

a_sheepdog_feature
 If you follow me on social media, you've most certainly seen some pictures of a Shetland sheep dog a while ago. I had the honor of drawing four portraits of this lovely dog as a commission. It was the first time someone commissioned me a dog portrait, and also the first time the technique requested was ink drawing. However, since I'm ver...

UMICON 2018

a_umicon_featured
Travelling to Turku to attend Umicon was one of those kinds of trips where I basically spend the whole day on a train. Waking up before 5 am, getting to the train before 6 am, sleeping the few first hours of the way, then killing time and changing the train until finally, late in the afternoon, I arrive to my destination.  Usual...

YUKICON 2018

Yukicon_logo_taustaton
Yukicon, which was held in Helsinki during February, was my first event in 2018. I'd gladly have participated Desucon Frostbite but when I contacted the organizers all their tables had already been reserved. So, going to Yukicon it had been a while since I had been in any event and I was very happy to get away from my little apartment for...

INKTOBER 2017

a_inktober_featured
​I might have told you before that one of my favorite quotes is "Better late than never". Today, I'll once again take that quote to a good use, for I'm about to share a blog post about my last year's Inktober drawings. Yeah, it was ONLY 5 months ago, but at least we didn't get to this year's inktober yet, so it's definitely not too late yet. That s...

ALICE IN WONDERLAND THEMED DRAWING - COMMISSION PROGRESS

aiw_feature
The commissioner wanted me to create "Alice in Wonderland"-themed drawing for their friend. The man in the drawing was 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...

ABOUT TIME I GAVE YOU AN UPDATE ON THIS

It's Sebastian work-in-progress update, of course! As you might know, I haven't had time to work on the illustrations as much as I thought I would, but slowly and steadily there has been some progress there too. I'm offering you all the sneak peeks I could find, being careful not to reveal too much. I only have 8 illustrations left now and even tho...

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.  ...
