I hate Gallery v1 and v2 - if my Japanese would be any better I would switch to Ninja Tools within a blink of an eye.
This outburst is due to the fact that I try to organize some stuff at my and Arki’s gallery … and we use different gallery tools (and please - any grammar nazi … I know that’s Arki and I) and I can’t upload png’s at her gallery *sigh*
But the lovely woman is modeling and texturing like hell and I can’t wait to get my hands at her new stuff. Just check it out.
On the affilliate front has another change happened. Since Violet Violence is more or less history, I kicked the link out.
But since yesterday I have a new affiliate: Shinra’s Bad Boys, a lj-community devoted to FF VII’s Turks and Soldiers.
If anybody else is interested in an affiliation, just drop me a line.
At the update front - the 7th page of my doujinshi is up.
Not much text at this one.
Practice, more practice, even more practice … I want to finish the Rico/Acid-pic with painter - and for that I have to get used to the brush options.
I really do like painter, although I got used to Photoshop within the last month. But this is oh so Zen - I have the ideal image in my mind. And I would jump up and down in joy once I’ve reached the level Feimo and Heise are … ok, I can dream, can’t I?
Seriously, I don’t want to be a copycat, and I know I’m really developing my own style. But what they are doing just screams for the Wayne’s world bow and the muttered ‘I’m unworthy’.
So I practice to paint eyeshapes, figures, try my luck on blending yadda yadda …
and just figured that the Paintings and Drawings-Section of my gallery contains the most images. Yeah, still have to upload all the rendered stuff, but atm I just prefere to paint and draw.
Which is connected to me being so impatient - I know the best techniques, I know how to set up lights etc … but I can’t wait for a render 24 hours to be finished.
When drawing/painting it’s me who does something all the time.
And I have to thank Arki for it. W/o her obnoxious comments I would never ever considered to grab a pen again. But it was her who got so f?”§ing terribly on my precious nerves.
Maybe it’s the aftermath of a really strange new years eve (and this doesn’t include me being totally wasted - which I was) - but I can truely say, that it was one of the many awesome things this woman achieved…
And w/ this post I broke my personal socks mia-rule … but who cares? ^_^No tag for this post.
Wow, just checked my blogroll and figured that all links are still working. Go me. And spent some time at Vondur’s awesome photo-gallery. Go, check it. NOW!!!
GomJabbar is working on a Quake Timeline, for those of you who are interested in Shooters.
Nekojita hasn’t update her side, but I know she’s working on an original fic. Can’t wait to read more ^.^
Arki is working on her dress, which will rock. Quite sure about that. The woman is never satisfied with anything half done.
Hm, I try to figure out the tricks in e-frontier’s manga studio, and having a hard time with it. It’s really not the best program if you want to do something in manga-style.
But I can blame Ambrosewulf, who claims to be innocent. As usual ^.^
(for the sake of those who have me on their lj-list, I put the image behind a cut)No tag for this post.

I hate Autumn!!! No, not really. But I hate the lousy weather. Working at the new job since November 1st and what happens? I catch a cold. And of course not one of the ordinary soon-will-be-over-colds.
I’m sure, the evil viruses just waited around the next corner for the right moment to attack me. Now I have a fever (not that high - lucky me Ó_Ò), have to cough a lot and feel miserable. Just wanted to let the world know about that.
On a more happy note (which doesn’t impress the fragging viruses a lot) - Arki goes wild. ^^
I believed her to be absolutely nuts, when I recieved her mail with the first wips of the dress, she’s working on at the moment. And as her betatester I can’t wait for the testing … on one hand. On the other … I’M SCARRED!!!
The cold has another positive side-effect: I finally finished the image I was working on. And I have a new album in my gallery, called Junk - the place for all the leftovers, I produce while working on images. Some of the stuff is just too good to throw it away. Feel free to use it in anyway you want - the album will contain mostly abstract renders and stuff I need for backgrounds.
Which reminds me of the fact, that I still have to adjust the css of the gallery. Sorry for the shitty apperance but I haven’t found the time yet. (Or lets say it this way: I wasn’t in the mood for it.) And I have to re-upload all my other images … *sigh*
music: 30 Seconds to mars // Message in the bottle
mood: exhausted …
I do have acctually a last.fm-account - so if anybody wants to know, what sick music I’m listening to … feel free to friend me. My username is Kabukichan (no surprise here ^.^)
And don’t wonder about the listed Tokio Hotel-Songs. To my own shame I have to admit they are not thaaaaat bad.
Besides listening to really strange music I work on a realistic skintexture in Cinema 4d. Shaders and even more shaders. Once I have figured out, how it works the best, I think I’ll put up a quick tutorial.
On a side note - recived a mail from Arki yesterday with a really promising wip - I find the time for betatesting, hon ^.^
And on to the next random thing. At DevianArt I recived a note, that there’s an ongoing Blade Runner Contest. (Details here)
Blade Runner is for sure the movie which influenced me the most. My lovely Dad showed it to me, when I was about 7 or 8 years old. Remember that my mom went crazy about it, telling him that I was way to young for it and that he’d messed everything up. In a certain way this is oh so true. Can blame Daddy for everything that was later going to happen.
Like my Anime-addiction, my love for strange Sci-Fi and that I feel most comfortable in Industrial Suroundings …
Just out of curiosity - do you have any certain movie or book that really has an influence on you?
