"Tarina sinällään oli aiheeltaan kiinnostava, koska se sisälsi yllätyksen, ja asian, jota ainakaan tämä lukija ei ole ikinä ennen ajatellutkaan. ...

Mitä ensimmäiset ihmiset Marsin pinnalla tekevät ja miten he ylipäätään sinne pääsivät?
"Matkalla Marsiin onnistuu olemaan riipaiseva, kamalakin. Se ei ole niinkään todellinen skenaario kuin nykyhetkeä koskevaa satiiria tulevaisuuteen siirrettynä. Tai pikemminkin tulevaisuutta koskevaan tekstilajiin." (Aemilia, Risingshadow)
"Matkalla Marsiin oli oikein piristävää luettavaa." (antilsa, Paperiarkki)
"Kaiken kaikkiaan Matkalla Marsiin on mielestäni ehjä kokonaisuus. Epärealistinen miljöö, henkilökuvat ja kerronta ovat onnistuneita ja tukevat toisiaan." (Sanna, Rih

Last Thursday (Nov-26 2009) I bought a graphics tablet. That's something I used to dream when I was actively drawing (years around 1990), but at that time, I didn't have money to buy one, and the drawing programs were rare, clumpsy, commercial and expensive. At those times, we used to use DOS in PC computers, and Windows 3.11.

And, you know, words "mouse" and "drawing" should never be used in the same sentence.

Years passed. I lost interest to drawing somewhere in mid-90's, mainly because it is so laborious (I used ink pencils, watercolors, color pencils, watercolors, copy machine to increase contrast, and so on), and have only occasionally made some pictures. Instead of drawing, I learned to play guitar (not very well), started to write stories (better than my guitar playing), and of course, all these years I have played around with computers and programming.

Then it came. There was a story, and there was a person suggesting to offer it to be published in a collection, and then there was some discussion about illustrating the stories. I got inspired first to illustrate my story (with pencil & paper, scanner, printer, clipart and GIMP), and then I thought why not to try illustrations to other writers' stories, too. It was fun, but time-consuming: draw, scan, fit together, print, draw more, scan, fit together, go back, print previous work, draw something different on it, scan, fit together, ...

And then I decided to buy a drawing tablet. I fell in love with that immediately. It makes drawing fun, again. I have a whole new world to experiment, especially the world of colors - computer and tablet make it easy to do colored drawings, but I have not used to that and I'm still too careful using their full potential. As you might see, I use them like watercolors, or colored pencils, and I'm not used to that you can always modify coloring, making it brighter or darker, unlike with real colors.

But anyways, let's see what I learn in future, and what direction make drawing goes.

Mako, miksei sinua näy enää koskaan Risingillä? Palasin sinne juuri itse pitkän tauon jälkeen ja vanhoja käyttäjiä selaillessani huomasin, että sinut on nähty viimeksi tämän vuoden huhtikuussa.

No, Rising jäi vähän sen jälkeen, kun löysin muita foorumeja kirjoittajille, joissa työstetään tekstejä julkaisukuntoon. Nyt on jäänyt kirjoittaminenkin vähän taka-alalle koodaamisen jalkoihin :) Mutta eiköhän sitä taas tule jatkettua.

Mako, perkele! Yhä hengissä?

Vaikka mikäpä pahan tappaisi...

PS.

Olen nykyään Vumpalouska myös Risingilla.
