My name is Risto-Matti and I'm 26. I study computer science at the University of Helsinki, although my studies sometimes advance a bit slowly due to my part-time job as a mobile phone game designer. I've been a happy vegan for 10 years, and I've never been drunk :D
My hobbies, aside from drawing, include hiking (conquered six mountain ranges last year), swimming (outdoors and in), cycling, crafts and cooking (I especially like to make chinese, indian, mediterranean and mexican food). I also compose music and play some instruments, namely guitar, darbuka, tar and other frame drums, mandolin, recorder, jaw harps, didgeridoo, kamanche (an asian violin, which I built), kanjira, charango, cajon and all kinds of objects that come by, and I also sing, both in a normal voice and in Xöömei (Tuvan throat-singing). If you ever come to Helsinki and notice somebody practicing Xöömei on a bus-stop, that's probably me ;)
I've been drawing on and off for maybe 9 years, starting with funny little comics and then dabbling in the anime style. Somewhere in the end of 2004 I got really inspired and started drawing nearly every day. There are always new things to learn. You might come to notice that there's quite a bit of shôjo-ai (girl-girl love) in my art. That's one of my favourite subjects, as are landscapes.
Here are the tools I use for my art:
- 2.0 and 0.7 mechanical pencils and copier paper for drawing.
- Japanese G-Pen and maru nibs and ink for inking
- A Canon LiDE scanner for transfer (the cheapest scanner I could find)
- Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7 and a Wacom Intuos tablet for the colouring and painting

I like your artwork. A lot even. I must say I prefer boy's-love but it's very nice to finally see someone draw some girl's stuff too. Because there isn't that much of that around. You should keep up the good work...
Don't pay any attention to those bashing people, they just don't appreciate a good piece of art.

your art is great, but the way you discribe your pics (girl on girl love?!) makes is sound like a place to get hentai ... but really most of this is very tasteful.

I love your art... but currently I don’t seem to be able to access any of the pictures... Does anyone else on this comment bar know what happened?
