Fly With Me by Manweri
Fly With Me
A little winter sketch I painted just for myself. Fun and relaxing for the mind :)

Lesson Number One - WIP by Manweri
Lesson Number One - WIP
Here is the work process for my painting "Lesson Number One", showing how I started with a simple 3D setup, and used that as a base for sketching and painting.

Lesson Number One

While Njorstinn was known as great fighter amongst his fellow Makht warriors, and once had shared their desire for reputation and wealth, he had in recent years gotten other values in life. After the passing of his wife, his young daughter was now the only thing of true value to him, and he brought her with him wherever he went. Aside from protecting her fiercely, he also made sure that she learnt how to defend herself, as to not suffer the same fate as her mother. Whatever his colleagues thought of him, he didn’t care about. He only wished for Miruna to smile and enjoy her life.

Hello there, all you beautiful people!

I just wanted to tell you all that I've gotten a Facebook art page now, yay!…
I plan to keep it updated with sketches, WIP's and final artwork. So follow me there if you are interested in seeing more dragons, heroes, epic landscapes, and whatever I'll end up making in the future.

In other news, I'm approaching the end of my second year at the Animation Workshop, and it's awesome as ever. When I start my third and final year after the summer holiday, I will be working on my bachelor project together with a team of classmates. It will be really hectic, but hopefully we'll have a great short film at the end.

That was all I wanted to tell for now, so I hope to see you around :)

Manweri's Profile Picture
Michelle Tolo
Artist | Student | Varied
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 am currently a student at the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, where I study Computer Graphic Art, and it's an absolutey amazing place to be.

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

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