I am taking commissions
Art Videos
videos with wips
Book Covers
DVC covers
CD covers

Please contact me in a note on dA..
my homepage and ..some other sites to find me;


I am also offering to making video slideshows of your art/photos.
I can make it from all kinds of accounts.
Maybe you are a model in need of a slideshow to you front page or youtube
or you need one for your photos or digital art.

This is an example with my older artworks and I am working on a slideshow with my newer work at the moment..
In this older video I have started with the darker work and it's going to the lighter fantasy works
as same as the music are. I can add your own music if you have the music file.

I always tries to connect the images to each other in some way and I also tries to have a natura flow
so the images look the best. I don't use too much effects because I want the viewer to see the art and
not a lot of distractions. I only use the effects to have your work/photo look even more beautiful.

Commissions I have done before, now on Youtube and e-bay and other sites..…………

Note me for prices please.
I price it after how much work and long time it takes.
I can easy download your files from dA if you have an folder and master
files uploaded.
I also need an deposit before starting the work.

Some awards and interviews

Rising Stars of Photomanipulation: SweediesArt
Some of you know her as SweediesArt, but others of us are fortunate enough to call her Karin or "friend." In her five-years on dA, she has grown a lot as a photomanipulator and is always working hard to improve her skills. An extremely versatile and prolific artist, her work is always creative and unique and always has a great concept. You can find her work in many groups and features across dA. Recently, she has even done some book covers and other commissions. She is a shooting star on the rise, and I wanted to share her with you.
She was kind enough to grant me an interview. I hope you will enjoy it.
Karin, in your time on dA, you’ve seen a lot of different styles and trends come and go. Through it all, you have developed a style that is pretty clearly your own. How do you think your own art has evolved over the years?
I didn’t know there were such art like Dark art when I first came to dA; I created only  fantasy a
Another Look At SweediesOne day, although I already knew SweediesArt, I had decided to look in her gallery. I was very impressed with the way she handles light and dark, and I felt that her compositions and conceptual themes were more than interesting.  I just had to put her on my devwatch.
Although she was recently interviewed by my friend XilaPhoenixArt, I wanted to know more about her feelings about her art, so I invited her to participate in this series of .  I present to you, yet another interview with  SweediesArt. Enjoy!
:bulletpink: Q. What is important to you concerning light in your deviations?
The most important are that the angle of the light are coming from the same direction on every stock. So, for example, the model stock has light from left and the background light is from the right and on the trees from above. In that case I flip some of the stocks so the light is facing the right way.
One other thing is the shadow of items must fits the light source

The Chosen One #2
The winner of our 'THe Chosen ONe' poll no 2.
Congrats and thank you to :iconSweediesArt: I have always been a fan of her artwork, I'm glad she took this one, lol. Here's what she had to say about her artwork.
"One of my own favorite artwork.Love my concept here with the little man in her hand. I did it for upcoming Halloween. I love how it turned up because it became exactly how I wanted it to be.
I saw the female model stock at first, loved her position with her hand and I loved the male stock also So I put them together. I knew they would fit well. Both are in the same angle, photographed from below. It is so important to think of angles and positions, especially when one wants to have a couple. I really love the soft lighting in this work as well ! I used dodge tool to have the white edges as lighting.
The hat on the crow was the last thing I added for having an even more humorous touch i

The project

Sensus Obscura is a nonprofit project, a group who invites musicians and graphic artists from all over the world to contribute.
It’s a musical and visual journey in to the obscure dimensions of the human mind.
A story about human behavior, and the unconscious forces of our psychology.

Visit the website:

Watch the video trailer :
The idea is also to help the participating artists to promote their artworks in an alternative way (amateurs, hobbyists or pro’s) but this must not be the principal motivation.
We hope to find collaborators who are inspired by the music and the theme of the project.
We want to make this a 1 ½ hour story telling animated video usin


All my stocks are unrestricted if it doesn't say otherwise.
Easy rules...
Unrestricted stock,can be used for both personal and commercial projects, but it cannot be redistributed as stock 'as is'.
All I ask for is to give credit and link back to me and a note here of course!
have fun!

When buying from an Artist/Maker, you're buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and sometimes months of frustration and moments of PURE JOY. YOU AREN'T JUST BUYING A THING, you are busy buying a piece of the heart, a part of the soul and a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about...…
