Professional info
 

I am a 27 year old, Swedish-speaking Finnish Illustrator and Game Artist/Designer. I focus mainly concept art, visual design and 2D asset creation for games and narrative illustration.

 

My natural art process is a dark to light, digital, painterly style with a focus on stylized or comic book style art. I tend towards the dark and moody ,"fairy tale" spectrum in my personal work but am generally capable of adapting to the style needed for a project and emulating other's art styles. I'm proficient in most digital mediums (digital painting more than vector graphics) and in watercolor, graphite, ink and acrylics when it comes to traditional media though I generally focus on digital or mixed media processes.
