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

Notes from yesterday. My thesis project is almost finished! I can’t even imagine all that free time after that. I can do anything!

I should be working with my graduation project but somehow I ended up re-creating Harley Quinn. As TEENAGER. Righty-then. I was inspired by Escher Girls blog. Click for better view.(Jenna Tähtinen)

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?

Aimless doodles, warm-ups, whatever, there you go!

Hot topics nowadays; cats, getting pleasure from drawing hands (that I used to hate ‘cause I sucked), holidays aaand Batman. Because of Arkham Origins. It was a disappointment,but that was something that I kind of expected. One does not simply beat Arkham City. But just imagine, how awesome that game would have been if it would have told the story of how Bruce Wayne became Batman? Show his training, different enviroments etc., well, instead we got the same city (with few new areas, yeh-yeh), pretty much same everything, why-hy-hyy? …& One does not simply beat Mark Hamill’s Joker when it comes to voice acting.

Have I ever told you how much I like orange? And freckles. And moles. Everything that adds a bit personality in your face.

Olenko jo hehkuttanut oranssia? Pisamia? Luomia?

Today’s work. I’m very glad that I finally started watching Gravity Falls, what an inspiring and wonderful show! I really like the characters and the setting (also backgrounds are looking great), I’ve dreamed that kind of a place when I was kid, the whole show just reminds me of my own childhood. I’m really waiting for the second season! :-)-Tämän päivän hommia. Sain vihdoin aikaiseksi tutustua Gravity Fallsiin, että pidän näistä hyvän mielen animaatiosarjoista. Hyviä hahmoja, hyvä miljöö (aika herkkuja taustoja), juuri sellainen paikka mistä tuli lapsena haaveiltua. Koko ohjelma vain muistuttaa menneistä ajoista. Ootan innolla toista kautta! :-)
