It's been a while

Posted on December 6, 2016 at 4:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Wow! Last post was more than a year ago. Shame on me :)

But you know what, I've been busy. I've been making games! Trying to get into gamedevelopment and it has been very fun. I have put my part in several jam games and I have dumped my own longer game at summer. Just last week our team put a playable demo to GameJolt. Go try it out. It's a shoot them up roguelite like game with sympatic encounters.

I will put links also to all those other games to my introduction page.

Dream Owl

Posted on September 14, 2015 at 8:10 AM Comments comments (0)

This time I want to share my work process with this Dream Owl painting. Customer asked me to use blue color and not to make it realistic. I then made some thumbnail sketches for him to choose from.


After the selection painting could start. He proveidet the canvas for me and I begun to splash some color on it. First I just put there some yellows and blues and sprayed water to have some depth. Then I made the underpainting still using watercolors. Spraying water ocassionaly and hoping for happy accidents.


Getting in some white acrylic.


Some leaf metal.


Black acrylic.


More details. flipping canvas upsidedown and back. Adding blue to the acrylic palette.


And here we have a finished painting.


Last but not least some clear varnish to protect those delicate watercolors I used at the beginning. I hope this was some what useful and you enjoyed. This was pretty straight forward and really fun project. And I have some cool left over thumbs.

New challenge piece

Posted on June 10, 2015 at 3:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Art Orders' latest challenge dead line is aproaching fast. I have now uploaded my entry.

Reaching my inner child here and it seems to be boyish. Well, that's no suprise.

I used watercolor and acrylic paints on paper. It was fun to experience with the paletteknife. It produced nice teksture and most propably I will use this method again. This painting was a living and breathing process. Finding the finish through uncalculated but enjoyed mistakes. Giving it more depth.

Please, go and see all the fantastic entries and wish me luck with this tough competition.

I did a cover illustration for a digital single and it was published March 9. 2015. Here I show you the cover  without any texts. Theme is somekind of scifi-fantasy.

Never Tell -cover, Ultimatium/Kaisa Tuulenkari 2015


The band is Ultimatium and you can find that single from iTunes and Spotify. Unfortunately it seems that I can't put working links here for the song but I'm sure you can find it if you want to. And you should if you like high noted heavy metal.

I'm currently working with the comming album of them, so stay tuned. It's supposed to be released at summer.

Logo update

I made this logo some time ago and some update to the font was needed. I like that first version but I understand why we had to do this. First was pritty but this new is much better and more readable. So here it is. New logo for Kennel Maitomiehen.




Harbinger Down trailer

Have you heard of this old school SFX movie yet? I am a Kickstarter backer for this. I hope this traditional way to make special effects stays. It would be fun to do it myself.

This is the official trailer of Harbinger Down. One of the characters is played by legendary Lance Henriksen. Can't wait to see the whole movie.

This time Jon wanted to raise a hand for a veteran fantasy illustrator  Jeff Easley.

New painting!

Posted on October 18, 2013 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (0)

I made this painting for ArtOrder challenge Inspiration.


Aurora Borealis aka Revontulet

After a light nights of summery Finland there comes darker time. In darkness I can see lights. It's time to see stars and, when you are lucky, northern lights. There is a story that Aurora Borealis is born when foxes run on the snow and sparkles fly to the sky from it's tail.

Medium is acrylics and coloured pencils.
