Manweri's Profile Picture
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:



This is a study I did for an illustration I'm currently working on, trying to push the horse's expression. More to come!

Photoshop, March 2017.

Elven girl

This is a study I've been working on during lunch breaks, focusing on lighting.

Photoshop, February 2017.

Felidae Noir

This started as one little character sketch, which triggered my curiosity, and then I kept adding new feline characters, all seemingly part of a grand detective story. It was certainly a fun exercise in lighting, mood and character design!

Photoshop, December 2016.

Rock study

I found a photo of some lovely rocks and decided to do a quick study of it, adding a sprinkle of dragons for extra flavour.

Photoshop, December 2016.

Zbrush character sketches
Here's a few Zbrush characters I've been playing around with lately, elaborately named Skull Lady, Parrot Guy and Draco McSmuggy.

I spent around 2-4 hours on each. Loads of fun! :)

Zbrush, November 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 :)
