First I didn't want to go, then my mom said I have too and finally a guy who I haven't talked with in ages gave me a call and asked if we could meet at the Gamescom.
Who am I to turn this question down? And to be honest - I know it drives a lot of people insane, but I'm best if the planning is spontaneous. Surprisingly everything works best if I haven't had days or weeks before to plan every detail ahead.

DSC00122So at Friday morning I was on my way to Cologne (From my point of view it was an excellent choice that the Convention moved from Leipzig to North-Rhine-Westfalia - train tickets are cheaper.)
When I arrived, my first thought was: OMFGBBQ! Kabuki in heaven... Games, games and even more games. But I wasn't only there for personal entertainment.
Just had to find a way to combine pleasure and work.
Pleasure: Drooling over Games like Tekken 6, Diablo 3, Final Fantasy XIV ...
Work: Meeting people, exchanging business cards, drinking coffee ...

Things I've learned: I can drink coffee, exchange cards and drool at the same time, except it involves Final Fantasy VII.
The apprehension, that fulfilled itself: I was weeping about my PC's Benchmark. And it's more then 13 days till Christmas.

One of my personal highlights was of course the new Guild Wars 2-Trailer. And if I only need a new PC for this game.

A shiver ran down my spine when I watched it for the first time. Seriously.

♥ Although the biggest personal highlight was the cellphone incident ♥ - I'm still pouncing about it.
DSC00120After lots of coffees, a horrible Pizza and even more coffee (and some biz'-talk) I finally left the Gamescom around 7:30pm to meet up with Sphinxeofthenile, Ice_Lady and Naurring. Three absolutely lovely ladies - and I think some people were kind of shocked, when they heard what we were talking about the whole time. To sum it up: It was for fiction-research XD. And I need the song, Ladies!
In the end a rabid plotbunny jumped at me around 3 am in the morning while we we were waiting for my train and dug it's vicious teeth deep into my already fried brain.
A bunny that still causes a major headache. Reeve Tuesti and Lazard in a Bar ...

I would have loved to stay for the whole weekend in Cologne, but to quote my favorite Warcraft-Orcs: 'Work, work, work...'
So I missed the attempts of a lot of Cosplayers to break the world record and lots of other fun stuff. One day isn't for sure enough to see everything - alone the waiting time in front of Blizzard's Diablo 3-Presentation was more than four hours (and that at 2 pm.)
And it's a completely different feeling to attend such a huge Convention as fan or with serious biz in mind. It was the first time for me, so it was really good that I was on my own - but I know for sure that next year I have to go twice (or buy a ticket for the whole week ^.^) and have to drag my Dad with me.

what the heck?
It's me ... and my fluffy moments are rare. Really rare. I had one of those moments when I started this sketch.

And today, while cleaning up the lineart, I was thinking about the dialogue Rufus and Tseng may had at this moment.


Any idea I came up with had to deal with how to annoy Reeve Tuesti, and the amount of people who need to disappear secretly. Oo

Mind you - all Tseng/Rufus sketches I draw are influenced or based on the stuff Nocti and I write ... we're completely OoC by now and really don't care. It turned into 'Dark' ShinRa-is-family-aka-organized-crime-biz Fantasy a while ago.

But it's damn hard to sit at home, work and sketch at the same time. I need ages atm to finish one single image. And I become more and more nit-picky about the damn lines...

Manga Studio is such an underestimated nifty program. The vector-options rock and although the ex-version is still too expensive for someone like me (and I will not dare to take a look at my bank statements for the rest of the month - macaroni and cheese will be my favorite dish till September) it's really an alternative to Adobe's Illustrator. (And this sounds like a bad commercial Oo // *commercial break over...)

I have no clue what came first - the review or the idea for the image...

Nocti and me just received one of the best reviews ever. And I know, I shouldn't make jokes about people who make the effort to write a review, but it's too good. (And besides this one little question it's a sweet review - I still have no clue why people love this crack-fic so much Oo)
The synopsis: Where did you guys got the information that Tseng's Wutainese? Or did you make it up?

pssst, I'm telling you all a secret here - it's only my kink for Asian guys with long black hair ...

really - she's bitching that I have to work on the doujinshi. And poor me is sick. And if the poor bunny's sick, she becomes fluffy ...
