18. The Forest Elf Veli


The Forest Elf Veli is a kind elf who wanders the forest. He knows the language of  animals. Despite his scruffy appearance and hairy face, the animals love him even if the other elves shy away from him.

I’m Laura Karioja, a 22-year-old art student from Kuopio. My current art style is realistic, and in my art I portray mostly characters or spaces, using either a digital or a traditional technique. Digitally drawn aesthetic spaces are intruiging to me, as well as animation.
