4. Näkki


Näkki is a black eyed creature living under bridges who, when angered,  casts spells to annoy other residents of the Elves Village. Sometimes Näkki might take ones who can’t swim down to her underwater lair. At other times Näkki spends time in peace under the bridge and keeps eye on the Elves Village.

Hey! I’m a 21-year-old graphic designer, who studies art at the Lapland University of Applied Sciences. I’m originally from Southern Ostrobothnia, and I’m interested a little  in every art form. My favorites however are traditional oil painting, gore and horror art, 2D-animation and digital painting.
