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 ...

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.

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 ...

THE EVOLUTION OF MY TABLE

Feature-13
It's been 9 months since I attended an event for a first time to sell my products (Kitacon 2016). Now, let's take a look at how it all started: As can be seen above, my first representation wasn't that appealing but at least all the products were there. Such thing as a table cloth hadn't even crossed my mind and so I ended up using a blanket that I...

IT'S THE FIRST TIME WE SEE SEBASTIAN'S MOM!

Feature-14
I'm not even sure why I'm so excited about it. Must be because moms are amazing. Sebastian's story will definitely not be the last story I create where the role (and the importance) of a mother is on the spotlight.Now I'm officially too tempted to talk about the story plot and need to change the subject. Let's talk about the change that is happenin...

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...
