About

This is a sketchblog, or an artblog, or more precisely "what-ever-I-will-make-up-in-my-mind" blog of one visual junkie based in Espoo, Finland. I'm working as a full-time graphic designer for Rovio and I'm also in the middle of doing my thesis in the Lahti Institute of Design. I spend most of my time drawing, playing video games (I prefer console gaming), watching movies/TV, reading comics and hanging around in nature. And I don't regret nothing!

I own the copyrights to all pics, unless otherwise mentioned. Do not use them without my permission.

If there's anything I can help you with or you are just silently wondering something, don't hesitate to contact me via mail jenna.tahtinen(at)gmail.com

Daily Spitpaint. Black Fur. For some reasons Tumblr didn’t want to upload this pic as photo post.

Before I start doing my endless thesis project I share this sketchbookdump with you, be my Valentines!

I really wish to be better what it comes to digital painting, unfortunately there’s no shortcuts. But isn’t this just a perfect friday, improving skills while listening/watching Da 10th Anniversary show of Les Mis? I made this for illustrationchallenge.com website’s jungle challenge but I missed the deadline day.Took me about 6 hours, is it still speed painting?

See you in the Spring. I tried to get some “atmosphere” in this. Maybe I should focus more in composition next time… Sometimes it’s fun to just start making something without thinking too much. This was made for Finconauts, Finnish Digital Art Community’s week challenge. The theme was something about fall and cuteness… :- )-Syyssöpistelyä, Finconauttien viikkohaasteen mukaisesti. Yritin saada tähän fiiliksen tuntua, ens kerralla voisi oikeasti miettiä sommitteluakin…Pitää varmaan tehdä epätoivon paljastava prosessigiffi.

I’m trying to seek & edit the right mood for the photos that I took for school work.

I live near conservation area and I went there to take some pics for my school work. My ideas for that didn’t work as good as I imagined but I got few nice looking shots that I (& my assistant) took mainly just for fun. This is one of them. Hopefully I don’t get a bronchitis now.
After two hours of trying to take good photos I begin to wonder how safe does it really feels to be in the forest, even when it got dark and we didn’t see a thing. Only thing you hear is mostly silence and weak voices of nature. It’s therapeutic really.

Autumn-fox.
Holidays are over next week. Too bad, I would just like to watch Batman animated series all day-and-night long.

Long time no-see. First; I’m out of pens & sketchbooks. I must go shopping tomorrow. Second: Here’s a landscape pic I’m working on. Something for my website. And I’m late of my schedule.
