Yo, just when I thought I had it done... the situation Is worse than ever.... I'm quite angry. 

My new tablet (Wacom cintiq 13HD) won't turn itself on- it goes black after 2-3 seconds... I didn't anything with it, not even unplugg the cables!) and there is still my old problem with the driver that makes my old tablet unusable. Yes, now it won't work even with the old driver... I tip the pen on the tablet and the cursor stays on the main monitor. And because I cannot try it on my new tablet, I'm completly blocked. I have work to do (for DBM), this is frustrating. 

Monday I'll try to controll the cables, but this thing with the driver has do go... WTF!!! Why does a new driver do this? I mean, is Windows 7 already to old for anything? It worked fine until 2 months ago... >:-(
I bought  a new graphic tablett (Wacom cintiq 13HD) and installed it, new software and such... but when I want to use GIMP (newest version) I regulary loose my patience. Say... I'm pissed. Like... I-want-to-throw-it-out-of-the-window- pissed. 
The problem is the pen, which makes strange movements despite working fine with Mangastudio. Double clicks when not needed, jumps from one layer to another, shaky movements, I cannot click on some "OK"-buttons, makes selections instead of drawing a line... and so on. The lines work somehow, but I don't have  a good feeling.  Its unnerving, to say the least. 
So i went back to my old tablett (cintiq 12wx), which works just fine, and then.... nope, I cannot bring my cursor to follow the pen on the tablett! It doens't "read" it, so to say. So I tried a calibration, but it doesn't permit it, because I cannot click on the marks on the tablett. Changing parameters don't have an effect. 
Going back to my new one same. Driver's installed and new, the pen doesn't see the tablett and remains on my main screen, so calibration is not possible again. WTF??????

Question: What can I do????? (Did I say i'm pissed?) If it goes like I cannot draw anymore.... 

EDITR: it works somehow with an old driver (?!), but GIMP remains shaggy. I mean, why? It doesn't make any sense... 
Well, some have seen that I do a redrawing of the last special chapter of DB Multiverse, 47. Why? Boh, because I needed the right push to restart drawing? Because I like the story? Because I have the feel I can train something I lack, the backgrounds? All if it. Because I want to bash the original artist? Surely not. I respect Scarz as a fellow DB-Fanartist. She just happened to have her special published when I was searching for an inspiration. Did it work? From my personal view, yes. I may be still a noob, but I believe I made some little steps in the right direction. It's learning by doing. I use Mangastudio 4EX, btw. 
Because it should be just a redraw, I will set my schedule on the exact same layout, meaning no extra pages, just some little adds between panels, where I feel the jump was to abrupt. Because even the original artist had to stick to the schedule imposted by Salagir. I hope I can stick with that, lol. 

You can find my chapter so far in the folder "Doujinshis", where I put all my fancomics. I hope you enjoy it, I'm tring to do my best, but it's not easy to bring an idea to paper/tablet XD 
Maybe this will trigger something big... 

Original chapter: www.dragonball-multiverse.com/…
My folder: bk-81.deviantart.com/gallery/3…

PLEASE don't ask me for commissions! I don't have time and inspiration for it! Thank you.

Finally it has begun... I drew this 2 years ago, a chapter of this fanmanga. Every chapter was made by a differrnt artist. I didn't know much, just general outlines of the story. The dialoge is in french.
I hope you like it (if somebody is even interested in it). It was quite a tiresome work.

Please don't ask me for commissions, I really have no time! Sorry! 

Okay, yet another journal about the new year...! But no, I will go on!

The end of a year and the beginning of a new year are, for most People, something that can trigger their desire to make a "restart" to their live" or "do something new". How many times we wait to a Special Day to do something instead of "just do it", not looking at the date? Just, begin? But, he, I guess is something psycologial, again. The new number at the calendar (and maybe a new calendar per se!) helps to jump the shark and find the drive to start.

I know that I have some terrible traits, like being much to cautious and loosing interest quite easy if not pushed constantly. And every year I say to myself: "CHANGE!!!". But, he, it's not easy to change a part of your character. At least I hope to complete this:

- some travels around Europe, maybe England (done- Wales- England-France- pics following soon)

- getting the BLACK BELT (done!)

- improving my skills in photography. (in progress...)

 - finally begin learing Spanish... hey, I have Italian and Latin, so it should be a bit easier, not? (In progress...)

Okay, that's it.... ah, this week they pubblished my Minicomic from the contest... ya know, that one with the female Vegeta. The other one will follow in the future.

And, of course, follow Dragonball Dimensions; my part is a bit later on...

www.fan-manga-dbz.com/dimensio… 


Happy 2014; new year, new chance!

The Team behind DB Multiverse had started a new Project with the Name "DragonBall Dimensions". It's an alternative universe, starting from the fight against Cell. The peculatity of this work is that the chapters are done by different artists. And, you might have guessed it, I did one of them. But it's still long until it.

In the meantime I'm making some pubblicity for it... sorry, it's only in French until now.

www.fan-manga-dbz.com/dimensio… 

 

I finished it just in time before my Graphic Tablett died... RIP. (And I guess RIP my drawing carrier too. Well, it was only a question of time.)

I will shift more to photography.

 

Well, as somebody might have already noticed, most of my newer devitations are "just" photos. I say "Just", because of course they won't get the attention my fanarts had. But, if I may ask a favor, please take a look at them too ^^

... but it's still cold as %$/ here! Well, at least better than 2 months ago.
Ah, Hi there! I'm still alive!

Short story, Salagir will pubblish my Minicomic "Prince no more" somwhere in the next future, maybe after ending the current chapter. I'm just asking, be clement...! ^^' 2 years have passed by since I drew that, with GIMP. And when Salagir pubblishes the Top 10 of the Minicomic-contest (don't know when) you will se the other 2 too. It's the afterburn of my work.

Maybe I'm just gonna pubblish fotos from now on... maybe or maybe not.
The only thing I do ATM is translating the DBM-novel into German; Salagir wanted me to do also "Hanasia"; which I will start eventually after finishing the novel. There are still 15 chapters to go for me.
This leads me to to this announcement: Salagir still would like to have illustrations for the fanfictions, may it be the main one, U16, Hanasia, or U14! Make it colorful!

...with everything.
Sorry, I'm gonna take  a pause from DA. In this moment it... just doesn't work. I guess this was it for me here.

Continous argueing with this f*&()&%$$ ng computer and the tablet, crashing programms/drivers and a nonexistent personal life (which is particulary bad prior Xmas...) ... I need time to adjust things, until I can think about drawing again. I wish it was already March or something. Something warmer, where you can go for a walk without freezing (we had our first real snowy-winter-weekend...)

Funny how something you loved for so much time suddendly falls from you, as nothing had ever happend. 6 months without drawing, and I don't find it hard.

Sorry again.

In don't know how many of you remember my doujinshi "Lone Wolf Howling", which is featuring Yamcha for once, but i'm planning a remake. I hope to redraw it with Mangastudio and FINISH it. Dammit, I have the whole story written, but stopped it midway. I know, I'm a catastrophe sometimes. It's not set yet, but I'm positive to remake at least the old ones.

Well, my questions are simple:
1) Are you interested?
2) If yes, should I remove the old version?

Thank you for reading. ^^

I feel ashamed.

... I'm talking about my old poor excuse for a doujinshi, called Dragonball SF. Even back then I knew this was far from being perfekt, but now... I feel I should cancel that. Really, ít was Ok that time (made on paper with pencils...), but now... I start to hate it.
It was an error to begin with, DB SF is a long story that could last 40 chapters and more, and I was thinking of making a comic out of it?! Me, who lacks resistance to much? I get bored very soon of things, when I loose my grip it's over. I know it's bad, you can thany DBM for pushing me this far in the last 3 years, without I think I would have quit drawing time ago. That's not a joke.

Well... but I doubt I will redraw it, because a) I lost interest in that story, b) I know that after 10 pages it will stop and c) I don't have time to begin with. If there would be the improbable event of sombody asking to draw it in my place, and me being the supervisor, maybe... but that would be a true miracle.
So, I will cancel the few pages in the near future. Save it, if you really want it (I doubt), save it and then forget it.

"Lone Wolf Howling" is a different case. I like the story, it's short... and I hate myself for putting in on hiatus. But I will have to redraw it forom 0, with Mangastudio i will be faster, I hope. But... there will much water flow down the rivers until that... I know, I'm a catastrophe. Sorry, guys and girls. *bows*

BTW ad announcement for DBM: We still need illustrations for the novels and U16!!!!!!!!!!
Please, if you got ideas, show your skills to us! here the old journal: dbmultiverse-fc.deviantart.com…

Last week I downloaded the new GIMP 2.8... I started with 2.2 years ago... ah, times flies...

Well, my first impression? I'm surely not through all the features yet, but I already checked out the things I frequently use. The drawing tools. And then here we go with th news: (will be added)
- many new brushes. Cool. But... No changes in size... well, the few brushes on the last version were the same, so, no big deal here. But a wasted chance.
- reduced standard brushes. I have to make them all new. I love having some in different size available at the spot...
- changes in scaling of the brushes. That's a huge letdown for me. The scaling is much finer with 2.6, the jumps from one size to another is huge! Expecially with drawing sizes. I mean, you start with 1000.0 and scale down. down... still down... and the size changes only insignificantly. Still down... 500.... 200... 100... still the same... 50... 10... 1...0.5...  and then!!! Suddently exponential changes ahead!!!11!! Hurr!!! But until only until 0.1. Finish. stop. So, for DRAWING (lineart) you only got 4-5 usable thicknesses, over 0.4 5 it's already too thick. (for me)  This leads to:
- maximal Pencil-shape. The maximal size (1000.0) is quite small, too small if you work on a A4-paper and want to color a big area. I see that during coloring the thing I'm working on. So, there we have to use the lasso tool... (I don't use the magic wand for this kind of works) But if I want to blur things, it's shit. It makes me really want to go back to 2.6.11.
-same for the minimum size... because I am coloring again DBM -page, I can make comparisons: I cannot make  a line as thin as the original outlines there anymore (to correct minor flaws), because the minimum thickness (0.1)  is too thick. It's again the scaling of the brushes! It's completly off! The difference between a 1000.0 brush and a 10.0 is much to small! You almost don't notice it!

-ok, and it crashes every 10 minutes... at every bigger move.  Yeah. (But it could be also the Pc)
- Text boxes: why cannot I move them anymore after having them set?  It's annoying using the move (arrow) button everytime (which still has the thing to sometimes move to much layers, even I selected "move only selected layers"...)
-they changed the order in the layer settings. Just... why? I was so used to find "multiplication" at the second place, but now its 8th. That was unneccesary.
- The window " create new layer" just wont' stay where I want it (I use 2 monitors, and the table is on the right). Saving the position don't help, with 2.6. 11 if saved it the first time straight.  

In short, I have to get used to the differences. Because, even if I'll use Manga Studio for the comic pages, I will continue to  color with Gimp. But the great "Wow" I had last time downloading a new version... I didn't have it yet. There are some points that scream "TRY IT AGAIN!!! THEY SUCK!!" Maybe I'll hope in the 2.8.1...
One question for Manga Studio: is there  apossibility to change layer mode with in GIMP (Multiplication, subtraction, ect...), so that the inking layer shows through the coloring layer? Because even with tutorials I don't find the right button... and what I found seems much more difficult that with GIMP.

Well... there it was... you surely thought that, after 4 months, my journal would be more interesting... Nope. ^^

Do you know what happened 5 years ago? Well, neighter I did, I had to look it up... but now I remember: 5 years ago I signed up on DA!

Wow, times has surely passed by, and I think It gave me much. New freinds, new chances, new inspirations- and a motivation to get better and better. I cannot imagine how far I would have beeen without it, but I guess not so far.
More than 1200 devitations (scarps excluded), and 270.000 pageviews! For somebody with 80% only focused on Dragonball it's sure good I think XD
I know I might have to expand my territory, but I also know that such deviatations are alway mostly ignored (yes, I know, I shouldn't look t that... but some comments would be nice) But as long I do what I like it's ok, right?
Thank you all for your support, and I hope I can count on your for the next years to come!!!

One month has passed by, it's hard, but I have to move forward. And I will.

One reason of joy is that I was given premium membership! It's written ananoymus, but I know who it was. THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!!! :headbang:

Now only 2 weeks, and this shitty year is part of the past. Finally. I take 2012 as a bew start, and I hope I can do what I wish to do. What it is? Nothing special, just stuff. And you?
Tonight we had the first snowfall of the winter (Remember, the last one was in July!), after 6 weeks of absolute nothing. I love snow, but only as mauch I don't have to drive a car though it. (Expecially at 6 a.m.) I know my photos aren't as interesting, but I will post some, someday.
It's also Christmastime.. are you surprised that this years I will have a difficult time? Yeah, I guess I won't do much. To say the thruth, I wish it was already in mid January. Meaning the worst days at work already finsihed (I work in a hospital- in skiing-time!-broken legs FTW), back to Karate lessions after X-mas break and so on.
Ok, enough. :salute:

Thank you again for all the nice words and comments on the last journal, I wish you merry Christmas and a Happy beginning of 2012!!!! :santa: :rudolph::rudolph::rudolph::rudolph::rudolph:

I'm wasn't sure if  I should post this here, but I need to write it down....

Today my mother had died. She was already caught in a terminal desease (cancer), and we knew since February that this day will have to come, but now that it had happend, it.... just hurts. Damn it hurts! All the days we had, now seem far to few.
I loved my mom. Dispite her age I went along with her very well, had similar tastes... she even watched Dragonball with me!
Now I'm here, this hollow feeling inside me, and I try to catch sleep. My brain tries to find something to work, to not think about THAT.... Should I draw? Read? Or just cry? I will do all. If not now, tomorrow, when I realize, this is NOT ad a bad dream.

EDIT: Today (Thuesday, Nov 22nd) is the funeral. God help me through this...
EDIT2: Today, 16th of December, my mom would have had (?) her 75th brithday. It wasn't meant to be...

RIP mom. I love you, now and forever. Thank you for all you did.
Pfiati. Donkschian fir olles. Du fahlsch mir iaz schun gonz brutal. Bitte pass af ins au, gell?



Es fällt mir schwer
ohne dich zu Leben,
jeden Tag zu jeder Zeit
einfach alles zu geben.
Ich denk so oft
zurück an das was war,
an jedem so geliebten vergangenen Tag.
Ich stell mir
das du zu mir stehst
und jeden meiner Wege
an meiner Seite gehst.
Ich denke an so vieles
seit dem du nicht mehr bist,
denn du hast mir gezeigt
wie wertvoll das Leben ist...

A new car, make a nice long holyday (who want's to come with me?), then we'll see.

2) If you were harrassed in school and yer bully was going to the school reunion, whould you go there?
Yes, I would ask him if he knew how much he was a pain in the ass. Somebody learned it; if not, it's time for payback. :evillaugh:

3) If you bought a car, what would it be?
Something small and practical. A Toyota Yaris maybe.

Mizar in the Ursa major, because he has that lil brother around him (Alcor)

9) Have you ever dreamed you could change genders for a day?
uh, yeah. ^^; was cool.

Well, in case somebody wondered where I hid for 3 weeks... I didn't hide, I just hadn't my PC working. Shit happens... So I had some easiergoing days- an exercise for my  patience; and when I finally had my PC back.... Internet didn't work. It took my some time to figure out the problem. As you can see /read, I got my connection back, for now, but no e-mail yet. Sigh. Now I'm trying to catch up...
Well. I didn't do much. I wasn't in mood.  Some colorings and that was it. Maybe I will go back to more serious work later on.

CU and I hope you like my work!

Another thing. Some weeks ago I finally had my exam for the brown belt in Karate. I wasn't sure if I would pass this time, because my job made me jump some important lessons. But in the end the exam went well. It still feels strange for me to call me a brown belt, not only because I still have to buy the belt (it was sold out where I looked...), but also because I don't feel like"being" that. Dunno, I'm made like that; if somebody invites me to his/her Dojo I fear I would make a bad impression... I don't feel like being that strong. Maybe it's because the lack of rivals in my category, so I cannot judge my ability well...
What now? Going for black belt? Another thing I don't know. I have to wear the brown belt for at least 2 years before attempting the exam for the 1st Dan, so I still have plenty of time to improve. My first aim was the brown belt, black would be only an addition; the important thing is the training itself for me. If my Sensei saiys I could make it, maybe I will try it, but I don't have that burning zeal for that. Maybe the unofficial black belt for the Dojo?
As you see, I will decide when the time has come. What will happen, will happen. ^^ If someone has been trough this too, can you tell your experience?
Ah, Fotos of the exam? Sorry,  I was too busy with the exam itself, so... nope. I will post something when i get the brown belt!

I guess most of you have read my new comicstrips about DragonBall... and now I got an idea... why only in Black and White? I could do it myself (one day I'll do it for sure), but that would be boring. So...
Who wants to try it? It's not a real contest, but the coloration I like the most will win a commission by me. It's more the fun part.

UPDATE: THE RETURN OF MY FF DRAGONBALL SF!!!

After many many tries I've decided that I will translate the FF on my own- in the meantime I've read many english FFs and trained my English a bit- so you can read it here. The prolouge and 1st chapter are still written by somebody else, but from the 2nd chapter on it's just me. So I can correct some errors I did when I wrote it in German 5 years ago... Ah, time flies, in the meantime've learnd a lot, for example about powerlevels and such.  Warning: they will be different from the original story. It's an AU after all. ^^ Saiyan Force.

Chapters so far:

Prolouge:  The abduction fav.me/d276qs3
Chapter 1: Battleplan fav.me/d27auhd
Chapter 2: Confession fav.me/d3f2oeg
Chapter 3: New life fav.me/d3f9i7o
Chapter 4: Training bk-81.deviantart.com/art/DB-SF…
Chapter 5: The hint  bk-81.deviantart.com/art/DB-SF…
Chapter 6: Warrior instinct bk-81.deviantart.com/art/DB-SF…
CHapter 7: Space Odyssey bk-81.deviantart.com/art/DB-SF…

Ah, if you feel like drawing a fanart fo DB SF, don't hesitate! ^^ Would love to see how do you imagine some scenes, maybe better that I would be able.

Good? I hope it will do for now. CU!

Point Reductions

Take points off your OCs overall score if they fit any of the following statements:

[ ] They smoke
[ ] They are an alcoholic (onyl a beer sometimes with pals)
[ ] They are overweight
[ ] They are addicted to drugs
[x] They have a short temper (YES! )
[ ] They enjoy bullying others
[ ] They do not care much about others
[ ] They are emotionless

So that means 15 points... Well... But I gotta say there are more Marysue-ish-points that others...)
I miss this question: "[ ] She/he succed in everything she/he tries" THAT is a sure sign of Marysue-ism.

<5 -Anti-Sue
Your character may be a bit on the boring side. Of course, this does depend, but generally if they are scoring that low, it wouldn't hurt to 'spice them up' a bit ^^

6-15 -Balanced Character
If your OC scored around here, then they are probably quite a well-balanced and interesting character. Those scoring in the higher end of this category may be a bit too much though.

16-25 -Borderline Mary-Sue
We have a problem. You need to tone your character down. They are most likely a bit annoying to others, too.

26< -Mary-Sue
Oh dear. Do I really need to comment on this?
