Michelle Tolo
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Hello, good people of planet Earth and beyond, and welcome to my deviantART gallery.

My name is Michelle, and I'm a Norwegian artist who works hard on improving my skills. I have been studying Computer Graphic Art at the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark for 3 years, and it was an absolutey amazing place to be. I am currently working as a concept artist for advertisement at a big VFX studio in London called MPC, and it's great.

I have a passion for fantasy art, though I like to explore as many different subjects as possible. If I'm not drawing or working, I can usually be found running around in the mountains with my dog, enjoying a good fantasy book, spending time with my wonderful friends, reading scientific articles, gaming all night, or drinking tea. I love tea. As in being perfectly capable of consuming 3 liters of it in a day, should I feel like it.

I really want to improve as much as possible, so if you have any critical criticism regarding my work, please don't hesitate telling me - I'm generally a nice and calm person to be around, so it is very unlikely that I will turn into a monstrous being and bite you.

Regarding commissions: Feel free to contact me if you're interested in commissioning me. You can either send me a note here on dA, or send me an email at Be aware that I do not work for free, and this also includes "possible profit if a project succeeds".

That being said, I hope you will enjoy my work. Thank you for visiting :)

Where to find me around the web:


Frostbite by Manweri
This is a character I made for the Character Design Challenge, with the theme "Centaurs". I had tons of fun with this one :)…

Material studies by Manweri
Material studies

This is a bunch of material studies I've been playing around with. I wanted to make it a bit more fun than just using the classical sphere, so here's a pony to showcase them. I call him Barrington.

Winged Bear Goat by Manweri
Winged Bear Goat

I wanted to try my hands on some fun creature design, and was inspired by a method that I learnt from the amazing Brynn Metheney: Find a collection of animal photos, and blindly pick a few of them, then create a brand new creature out of the ones you got (using anything from bodyparts to colours and texture details etc).

I ended up with a black bear, a Markhor goat, a Blue-footed Boobie bird, and a white raven. So here is the Winged Bear Goat!

Journey to Elderbeck by Manweri
Journey to Elderbeck

A world with tiny people, or perhaps it is people in a giant world. I have yet to decide!

I wanted to experiment with photo textures and lighting, and seeing as I love forests and nature, this was the result.

Photoshop, August 2016.

The Bachelor film I worked on together with a wonderful team at the Animation Workshop is finally released! So if you're in the mood for some laughter, tears and a lot of cookies, then check out Grandma's Hero!

I did mostly backgrounds and compositing on the project, as well as handling the colour script and designing the dragon :)
