Nothing seems to go as planned. A dated Journal and things to do/work on.

My Review site (game related for now) MediamixUp is up but lacks content - www.ddstuff.com/mediamixup/

I have been doodling a while more... Need to catch up on a few things.

And I will be using Pixelmator and Photoshop CS4 to draw something. I may end up drawing my other characters again at a later date. I should group the ones I have now to save the time linking to every one of them.

I will try to up my activity here, it is desperately needed. ^.=.^;;

Sketches that I owe. Free as they may be, will have to be given the colored treatment now.

That's it for my to-do list untill next-time everyone.

Yeah. And now I am internet starved. Thanks random and most unwelcome storm for destroying my planed week. >.=.<

At least the Cable and Internet are on a generator... I will get power hopefully a little after midnight tonight.

I will have free time to draw... And sadly, I have not improved much from then and now. So I have a lot of catching up to do.

Well, anyway... How was your week? Just as painful? or less so?

It's cold here. DX

Not sure if people just look at my page wondering when I will make new works of art... Not sure at all about that. But I noticed that sometimes I get 6 views a day. I personally don't think it is anything special.

I have not had anything new to draw for a long time... So I am unsure when I will start drawing again.


Currently in my life so far...
My Temp job is full time for a month, as a part time contractor on the web development side, and I am enjoying it so far so good. It is open job training and I have been taking it seriously for 3 weeks so far. My First week was really good. Second week, I did well also. Did not have a good 3rd week at all. showed up late due to random assortment of people driving five miles under the speed limit (MPR Miles Per Hour) even when I left early-er then that... It was more of an annoying drive because of that. Minus that Friday morning, I left late. I am so far on my 4th week... It is going to be an interesting one. And I will wake up earlier then my usual times.

So... Anyway...

I have done sketches on the side... I am just unsure of what I want to post. I happen to always end the sketches part way struggling to draw that posture just right without messing it up. Then mess it up and stop drawing it entirely to try something else only to find out that I lack the skill to make it look right.

I have a Mac and a PC, so I will try different tools/programs/applications to draw with.

If anyone would like to do an OC or something using a free version of Hamachi along with it, I will be more then welcome to it on weekends. Unless otherwise noted.
I am willing to draw again, just need some help to correct postures and such.

Till then, I will continue to watch artworks, read journals, and such.

My massive case of art block... I know what I want to draw, just can't seem to get my mind wrapped around it. DX

I am thinking of a Profile ID image... My art page is meh without one.

My lack of updates just seem to go on forever. I have been drawing, improving slowly, etc. However, motivation escapes me. As I try to update my website, practice my art, and continue to look for a job to live off of...

I might have over-done it with my high expectations... So far it caused me to be more hesitant and unsure of how to move forward with myself. No, I am not depressed. I just lack the motives to move forward. As for the owed sketches of 2008, I am sorry. I have been so unorganized and hesitant that I know I need to stop holding myself back. It has been far too long sense I said I would be doing things again.


--- My site News --- (Lazy copy and paste)
With the lack of updates here, something needs to be done. I said that over and over... But yeah, I'm so close to getting something done, only to find out that there is a limit with the CMS (Content Management System) I try to use.

I've found a few that I happen to enjoy figuring out, Simple Made CMS. The only issues I'm having are trouble finding a guide that's up-to-date for it. I must not be typing up the right keywords on Google or something because I'm not having fun with this if I can't find an up-to-date guide. DX

Still, I happen to think that I have to manage the site the old fashion way if I can't find something that is supposed to be simple without the hassles of a CMS template system holding me back. I know these systems on what they are supposed to do... In the end I end up frustrated as to why my stuff doesn't work right... That's where I'm held up and at a loss.

The Preview of my site on my Mediamix-Up site - www.ddstuff.com/mediamixup/ - shows that it is working, but underneath it in the CMS itself, is a big mess.

Don't get me wrong that I'm incapable of understanding the code behind Truetype and other CMSs. I get where they were going with it. However, with the way my needs are, I may end up having to pay someone to make a cms for me. Seeing that happen will be slim to none on my part. Only a very small few systems I noticed that allow the use of using brackets - {} - like those or some form of php... The news updater I am using, for example, use these brackets as an indicator of where the topics, titles, avatars, etc. are. I've tried a bunch or more CMS's that I thought would allow the freedom of design without having to bend over for the sub-standards of that particular system, in fact, happen to be done differently and not done by a simple standard. (K.I.S. - Keep it simple, or K.I.S.S. - Keep it simple stupid)...

On a lighter note:
Frog CMS, oh wow, this one seems to please me well. I may end up using it but needs to be tested on my site before I officially start to use it.

--- end of site stuff ---

Other then all of this, I really want my website to move again and my art to flourish. I still plan on moving forward even if it pains me. So, till next time friends. Hopefully it won't take a while next time.

I still owe sketches from '08! Opps... o.=.o;;

I guess to make up for the wait, I'll have to color it. ^.=.^;;

1. :iconthe-random-channel: - Wants Brute Force to be bigger. - Still want me to do it?

2. :iconthechaosproject: - Wants to see Silverstar Duel her Character Breaker, This also gives me a silly idea. XD - Update: If I get going that is.

3. :icontrancetime: - Random... (lol) wants to see his character in a funny way. Using these as references - trancetime.deviantart.com/art/… - trancetime.deviantart.com/art/… - trancetime.deviantart.com/art/… - lol on the last one. - Unsure... But it seems he isn't on DA much anymore. -.=.-;;

4. :iconcommanderhavoc: - Wants to see his weredragon flexing using this as a reference - ryuakira.deviantart.com/art/Ap… - Uh huh...

5. :iconemotioncreator: - Wants me to draw his character. I guess I'll have to look in his gallery for references. - I need to start drawing again...

6. :iconvictortky: - Wants me to draw his character using this reference - ryuakira.deviantart.com/art/Ma… - Sure... Is there an updated reference to follow now? Note me or reply here.

***Don't be afraid to drop me a line.***

So, New layout and everything. It's great so far, but still a bit buggy. Hopefully it'll all work out in the end. Sill dislike the idea that there's now more adverts everywhere. I'll give a sub a try. Seeing that I get to use my old journal thing again. I'll use my old journal, then update it to keep it from getting dated.

I just can't edit it... So, here's the link - ddstuff.deviantart.com/journal… - April 10th, 2008 is when I used to have a sub as a gift.

So feel free to drop me a line if your interested in a custom journal. Till I get a sub, I'm stuck doing the basic look and feel. I would work on it, however... Money. That's the only thing that's holding me back. I'll be able to afford it after I get paid from my web design job. Yeah, it's not a very good job, more of a starting point getting $75 a month plus some fees. It's a small club and they need a lot of things fixed and updated before I get on to using php and such. Right now it's all pure HTML, just a Windows based HTML server with no PHP back end for web gallery's and such. Plus, it's $160 more for this service then it is for the one I pay for... *sigh*

Anyway. That's all I've got to say right now. Till then, see ya!

I got a Bamboo Touch and Pen Tablet! The end...






And heck, it's packaged like I just got a brand new Mac or something. O.=.O

But the quality shows... It really does. Worth the hundred U.S. Dollars.

It's small and it's good for travel. The bigger tablet will be used for doing home based stuff. Or more detailed drawings.

My mind has been made up. This is an awesome small tablet.

Means... More quick drawings from me!

Expect some drawings from me from here on out! ^.=.^

-------------------------------------------------


I forgot to say this... New Battery. I'm happy to regain the lost 2 hours out of this thing. ^.=.^

But I'm glad I still got my old drive back. However... It died... Good thing Apple gave me that HDD. I'm also glad I didn't work on placing back that Western Digital Drive, once again... I need to send something out. IT NEVER ENDS!!! DX

Turns out that one of the failed Apple Tests was the Hard Drive not containing the Apple firmware in it (I find it silly at first). Oh, I also got a new HDD (Hard Disk Drive) in the thing now... And it has official Apple HDD Firmware... And it's a good thing it's there... Almost fell out of luck on the failing WD on this one.

I also got my 8600M GT graphics card (the card that displays things on your computer screen, that was my main concern mostly) replaced and it still has the same specs as before, 256mb of vram. But runs as good as new.

Thanks Apple Tech Support!

So, what now? 9/11/09 is the day I get my Nintendo Wii back from a similar issue. But who cares it's a free repair? Seems so.

Anyway... Any questions regarding this journal, comment. I'll try to dub down the details if I have too. But only if you ask. Otherwise I wouldn't have a clue if you did catch any of this.

At least comment. '.=.';

After a long and almost 2 weeks, my MacBook Pro has been fixed and is being sent back tonight. So I'll have it by tomorrow morning! ^.=.^

And that also means that I need to work on my website, it's in need of an update very badly by this weekend! I'll have to wait till I get Mediamix-Up fully operational before I upload it. As for my art site, it will be up and running by the weekend.

Also, on the 11th, I get my Nintendo Wii back from the repair shop... Now I can play my Bomberman Land game finally.

Lucky me!: The repairs for both of these machines are free. So I can't really complain - complain.

Artwork:
I've been working on my art for some time while I was at it. *Practice practice practice*
Improving somewhat... But still trying to improve some drawing flaws. I'll talk about this later... XD

Oh, and for any questions on what my Mediamix-Up site will be about (NOT asking offline pals here) don't hesitate to comment. I'll reply.

Old News
-------------------------------------------------

support.apple.com/kb/TS2377 - Regarding a NVidia 8600M GT GPU (Graphics card) issue.

Yup... I'm screwed. Well, I almost got screwed when I went about Six towns away just to get to the Apple store when they said that they'll charge me $310 for a GPU fix even tho it's supposed to be covered even with no Apple Care.

I called tech support to complain about the common NVidia Graphic Chip issue and pointed to that document on their support site. So they are going to repair my MacBook Pro free of charge (they better). I mean, you can search google and see the issue all over the place with not just Apple... HP, Dell, Sony, etc. Computers are affected by the NVidia 8600M GT Graphics card "Bad Bump" issues.

All I have to do is just wait for the box to show up and on to the repair center it goes. *sigh* Now I'm stuck with an aging iBook G3 and Adobe CS. Or my 3 Ghz PC with Photoshop 7.

Personally, I'd rather use Photoshop CS4, GPU support in the program for me is a plus when doing images for my website and coloring in my artwork. (I'll never dare to try it on my old iBook... Slow and painful.)


My Nintendo Wii also suffers an interesting GPU (Graphics card) issue, however it's made by ATI (and the issue has already been resolved). Dots on my HDTV screen. It was an issue with the launch date Nintendo Wii's. But man, It's taking forever to get that thing shipped just for a fix. DX

Parking at my college was a pain too. Urg... Good thing they offered me a parking spot at a different lot next to the college.

Other then that... It just seems that this week has it out for me. -.=.-;;

So, anyway... I have been improving my drawing skills yet again. I will also scan/upload my sketches for later viewing. But so far, I've been doing great. Got tired of doing some things and figured to get off my lazy ass and do something about it in the sake of drawing something.

Oh, and another thing, you guys wouldn't mind me art dumping some of my other artworks as well right? Just a friendly warning for those about to think, wtf this isn't dragon related at all. XD

1. :iconthe-random-channel: - Wants Brute Force to be bigger. Mmmm... Ok. XD

2. :iconthechaosproject: - Wants to see Silverstar Duel her Character Breaker, This also gives me a silly idea. - Had to post-pone this one to get a full fledged version of my character out!

3.  :iconcommanderhavoc: - Wants to see his weredragon flexing using this as a reference - ryuakira.deviantart.com/art/Ap… - Ask me quick if you want me to do a different reference before I attempt this!

4. :icontrancetime: - Random... (lol) wants to see his character in a funny way. Using these as references - trancetime.deviantart.com/art/… - trancetime.deviantart.com/art/… - trancetime.deviantart.com/art/… - lol on the last one. - Got an idea already. Hang on!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Old, but worth the extra read:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How are you guys doing? I haven't updated, but have improved in my drawing classes. So I plan to make an updated bio of my Character Silverstar, and make bios of my other characters, their likes, dislikes, etc. And maybe bring back some characters I haven't used in a while. ^.=.^;;

The idea of making a comic? And will I go for it?
Seeing that I suck at making text based stories... I'm going to draw instead. (It'll give me another good reason to do something instead of having a dead looking account.)

And as for some of my muscular characters, they'll be in the comic series too.

But first things first, owed work needs to be owed...

Fixed as of 4/7/09:

Happy birthday to me. ^.=.^

btw, I'm getting money for my present. I already have Adobe Design Premium CS4... So I'll be able to update with more art now that I have software on my Mac that supports an Intel Processor fully.

Tech info alert:
I also noticed how adobe's system requirements are a bit high. Adobe CS3 and CS4 work on a Pentium 3 processor fine (max 933mhz). And for the Mac, they work on G4 macs also. Tried it on my G3 Macs, but the graphics cards and processors don't have the required specs to install the software.

After finding this song clip, I can't seem to figure out what game it's from for the life of me...

All I know is that this song sounds like it comes from a Sega Genesis game. I just don't know...

Any ideas?

Just letting everyone know that I'm still alive and kicking. The thing is, I've been playing with my Audio Video Capture device, then I found out that the Component connection makes my game pictures too bright. So, I had to go the store and buy an S-Video multi-connection cable for multiple game systems. It helps with my Youtube account (DDStuff). It isn't component, but it's quality is better then my composite (Video) connection.

Ok, now that's aside...

I was going to post on new years, but figured to not bother. I have been drawing my character (Silverstar) super buff for some reason. Just to get some practice in on muscular type things... Well, it doesn't matter.

I found out my tablet can't be used after Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.6 was released. So, I found out that Adesso is going to take forever to update the drivers for my CyberTablet 12000. However, owning a duel booting system, I can still run Windows XP to draw. But I'm stuck with my older version of Photoshop 7. And I like Photoshop CS better, I will get CS4 before classes start anyway.

So, That's about it...

Well, no...

I'm trying to animate my Character's movements. But haven't gotten far yet. So, you'll see the Star Dragon himself moving in a .gif or .swf (Flash) if I ever complete it. DX

And that's all folks! :D

Other News:
Oh, I also got a free new 30" TV with one set of RGB (Red, Green, Blue) ports that I can get component cables to (for Computer Monitor type quality in games or just to use as another monitor), Surround sound support, a switch between 4:3 to 16:9 resolution (black bars top and bottom on the second one), and 3 other Audio Video connections. The thing even has a fan inside of it and it also has a flat screen CRT. Not bad for a freebie... Now I need to buy a 30" CRT stand now. XD

The only thing is, I have 3 TV's in my room. A small, The 15" CRT flat screen I paid for at a local Walmart years ago, and this huge thing.

ENTERTAINMENT CENTER HAS EXPANDED!!! lol

SNES - goes to the small 5" TV
N64/NGC/PS1 - goes to 15" TV
and
PS2/Wii/others - goes to 30" TV

That's my set-up.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh, I don't think I told anyone, but my Notebook is super fast now. Bigger faster 320GB (real 298GB) SATA HDD, and 4 gigs of ram with a 8% speed performance increase. My notebook boots Mac OS X 10.5.5 that ranges from 15 - 25 seconds fast. Windows XP boots fast by 30 - 40 seconds, better then before in Bootcamp.

Now my Notebook is able to keep up with some speedy Desktops. It comes in handy when I want to get quicker access to my college stuff.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
There's more?!?

No, no there isn't at this time...

Unless you want to know that I'm Acing my Webdesign 1 class and that I'm doing really well in all my art classes, writing class I can't seem to grasp for some reason. >.=.>;;

That's about it.

Enjoy your day and don't be afraid to comment (nothing random Codename36). lol

And that, it's keeping me occupied. So much work plus I ended up with a cold/something bad that hit me like a ton of bricks.

I should be fine today tho.

Drawing, maybe on weekends. I'll post up some of my sketches I haven't uploaded yet. And I still owe sketches. - ddstuff.deviantart.com/journal… - D:

Anyway... Adobe CS4 is almost here fully, I plan on getting it. After all my graphics card will have other uses besides games.
I'm still on CS1 and Macromedia Studio 8. I'm in dire need of updating. XD

I hope you all have a wonderful day! :D

OMG, rant...

I can't stand it anymore... Of all honesty, how the heck and I able to go on to that elders machine and just "Change the dates" Always checking the "modified dates" saying I went onto his/her system is unrealistic. Isn't it?

And now that elder is peeved at me for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

I'll explain: I tried to explain that his/her old computer is going to die... And well, Yeah... Keeps neglecting the fact saying "It can't die..."
And because of it, I normally don't do this, I gave his/her a Dell Mini-Tower Pentium 3 at 933Mhz with 256mbs of ram that is able to run all the programs of Adobe CS3, Office 2000, etc. The fact that I was replacing a dead machine (old junker keeps resetting, ram slot is shot, USB doesn't work, PCI slots one-by-one dies, and the OS just stopped working). Now I'm being blamed. And she/he said "No, you've been on the PC... The dates told me." (on the newer machine I gave him/her) So basically, she said "You hacked my computer."

Please note that this person has dial-up, also note that this person expected all the programs to just "Transfer over" when unrealistically, it can't be done without a reinstall (Only 4 programs I don't have discs to). I tried to explain everything, but I get breathed down the neck for shit.

Guess what? If that computer was a Mac... Migration Assistant (transfers apps, files, and programs over) would of saved me. However, XP doesn't have that option to do it. So I'm screwed. And will never hear the end of it till I find a way to ask for help from one of his/her kids. Now this is going out of control. I can't stop it and my parents are about to get into it. He/She is the only client I had the most trouble talking to. Or even worse, trying to explain and show him/her without him/her freaking out with rage. And blaming me for stuff that I have no control over. It's driving me nuts.

He/She also assumed that I thought he/she was an idiot and that he/she also thought that I was just treating him/her like one. Fun-Fact: B.C. - I have never once thought of anyone like that. This is just plain crazy, Now I just want to give him/her money back and let him/her keep the Freak-en Mini-Tower. Because I just can't deal with it anymore. I can't...

This elder person needs to take a class on Computers and How they work. Because it's driving me a-wall.

The scary thing is, he/she is my 13th client. Plus it's a full moon. God help me.

I never felt this nervous and upset about this... It's a living hell-hole I gotten myself into. And to make matters worse, this person is also in my Web Design 1 class. I can't stand it.

Fun-Fact 2: This guy/gal is easy to talk to with everything else BUT computers.


And as for those who sat there and read this whole thing... Well, how am I going to deal with this? Any ideas?
