I'm from Finland, a Northern country between Russia and Sweden in Europe.
I love history and read a lot of books about it, but I'm not claiming to be an expert on the subject. However, alongside history I love fantasy.

Tari Uyest' (TWOD) is a story first created in 2002 when I was only 16 years old. It can be cliche, childish and everything else, but it is VERY dear to me. Also this story has inspired me to work on other stories and continue on bettering myself.
BEEN ONLINE SINCE 2009.

Taint of Exile (TOE) is my main work and currently going through rewriting (which will not affect the four first chapters so don't worry ;)). Doing the pages take a great deal of time which is one of the reasons (alongside many other) why I'm really slow on the Project. This story is also my first example of really playing around with a story based on historical facts. I hope to learn a lot from it (which I have already done).
BEEN ONLINE SINCE 2004.

My tools of trade are traditional tools. Mainly pencil, markers and watercolors. Computer is not my friend when doing art XD
So when doing my comics I use very little computer in the actual pages. ^_^

Hello, hello!
Glad to hear you are going to work on this again.
I should really get back to my own comics as well...
So in short, I haven't disappeared :P

Finally got around to reading the story to the end!
Loved it from the start to the very end.
I love your work and your style and it still continues to inspire me. Hope to see more from you soon and will visit your deviantart gallery now and then ;)

Oh, and I noticed from you tmblr that you are going to study in Korea Seoul! Maybe you'll meet my sis there who just started studying there this year :D
The food-picture is actually a compilation of Finnish traditional Christmas foods and something extra.
There's ham, potato casserol and less Finnish eggnog.

The hands with water in it is connected to John the Baptist and the baptisement.

The sunny picture is "Jesus comes from light" and the last is bregnant Mary. The flower is poinsettia that is a very common Christmas flower.

And yes, the house is an advent-house XD
Just the fast pieces of art I made for the calendar mentioned.

I'm really slow with things. After almost a half a year since I bought a new Computer I finally got my art programs installed today -_-
I'm sorry for my lack for any updates on my both comics. It's not because of any lack of interest to continue. I have some pages scetched for both. However, I have been unable to really concentrate in finishing any of them.

I think this is just because so much has been going on. Many big changes are also going to happen, but when things calm down again I hope to be back to drawing.

Lately I have drawn a couple of pictures for work. The picture here is one of them. They are quick and simple so that they won't be too different from the childrens' pictures that are published alongside them.

It's enjoyable to do some quick work in a long while. Pages always need more work.

I have also been thinking of only sending scetches online, but if I do that I most likely will never finish the pages properly. This is why I have rather not uploaded what I have already done.
I rather upload finihed pages.

This is just getting more and more exciting!
After adding the text on this pages I realized it doesn't work the way I would have wanted it to...
Ookay, I got some pages done for TWOD this time. Next page will come up tomorrow.
These pages are connected in such a way that I felt bad to keep you waiting longer than one day...

No promises as to when I will have updates again for TWOD not to mention TOE. I'll just draw new pages with our stress.
I can understand both of their desires. Ofcourse Luppi want's the colonel of his back and continue with his life. And I understand the colonel's need of justice.

Just too bad they have to deal it with weapons and violence.
The action of this page kind got lost to me at first because I couldn't help but to look at the colonel's sleeve as two hands (because of the white seam in the jacket) ^^'

The lightning is nice.

A very important thing to think about should the prisoners still stay in prison if the law ceases to excist? Don't know the answer!
Well, true. It's irrelevant. You escaped prison, Luppi.
Hmm, I'm not so sure of the choice of black and while in the last panel...

Still, let me get lost in all the details of the first panel!
Hmm, the running people and the water on Luppi gives us the idea that it's a lot of rain, but the rain itself unfotrunately don't seem to give the picture of a storm. Maybe because there aren't especially many raindrops in the page.

To me it gives the feel of normal rain.
But rain nevertheless!!
Somehow he seems like a completely different person in the second last panel...

The second panel is like from a real film. You did not only ad the sign but made sure to give a glimps of a lamp and rain pipes (is that even the real word for them?).
By the way, the way you have only subtly hinted of the relationship of Bianca and Luppi is very nice way of including something impressive and important and still giving us the freedom to imagine.

After reading this I can very well understand why the prison scene worked so well. Using your own feelings as a base for Luppis thought must have been the magical trick to really make it so impressive!

I can somewhat relate to the thoughts because of my own experiences and thought of the past.
Details, details, DETAILS!!
About the sepia tones I must disagree with Cahir. I love and always have loved sepia tones and by using them the pages remind me of old photos which I think works great for the comic!

But, I think it is these different opinions that really make both our comments worth while for you.
I respect Cahir's view of things as well and she gave wise advice to you.

Your choice of using coloring pencils gives me the feel that this is a really personal and loved project that really needed work to be finished. Other than that I think the ink would have worked just as well.

I did now have trouble reading the text in the diary, but I can understand that some might have difficulties with it.
However, I think it also gives the diary the feel that it is really written by Luppi. Steight lines rarely go with handwriting.

Still, a clear font is really important for any story. But above all I'm impressed that you actually did the fonts yourself!

I don't even know how to do them which is why my fonts are so boring XD
I want to have Luppis "jacket"!
(I know it's not a jacket, but I don't know it's real name.)
Dun dun dun...!

I could not help but to think "cute" when I saw Luppi climbing the wall!
