2. what/whose art style influenced you?
Already answered that in the last journal (in alphabetic order): catnappe143ichan-desu and LazyTurtle did a lot to me.. also there's a girl on instagram called assidy_corncob who's traditional art is just amazing! Learned a lot about how to use copics from her.

Number 1 is currently Final Fantasy XIV. In general the Final Fantasy series is what I like, RPG and such stuff. On my phone however I love Angry Birds.. Also Pokémon and Digimon have a big part in my gameing history.

9. Tell us an about embarassing moment
There are so many.. I did talk a lot about my music doing.. however I was not always good and once I got on stage at a big concert.. we walked into the middle of the stage, all lined up in a "drumline" and suddenly right when we wanted to start with playing my drum crashed on the ground. The strap on which it was fixed to my shoulders ripped and I can tell you, such a drum makes quite some noise if that one hits the floor...

10. Now tell us a time when you have to be a dickhead
At Music teaching when I have to tell the people what to do and to follow my rules only.. or at work when I have to teach some people how a computer works and that their tries to work actually always will be failures. Yea about that.

Now the thing is I don't really want to tag someone.. so if you read this and want to answer these questions, feel free to.. and you can also do the upper part with the rules and facts :D Have fun!

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Couldn't say without checking. Over nine years! Soon it's my 10 year anniversary!

To be honest, the username I originally wanted to register was already taken. So I looked around for a name that does not exist anywhere on the internet and found this.

ETPFI - Here I come

Thu Jun 17, 2010, 2:17 PM
Hi Everyone!


So from tomorrow on, I'll be at the ETPF in Interlaken, Switzerland till Sunday late evening. ETPF stands for "Eidgenössisches Tambouren- und Pfeiferfest" or in English "Federal Drummer and Pipe Festival".
There, me and my group will play in a competition for the best drummgroup of Switzerland. Like the Soccer-WM, this festival is only once each four years! And the winner can be called the Swiss-Champion during the four years till the next event ^^

This year we will again start in the lowest category where we'll try to defend our good results of the past four years and to see if we got any better since the last festival. For us, it's still only our second time we're taking part in this festival.

And for the first time, I'll also go and take part in the solo competition in this festival! There I'll have to play twice alone in front of two judges. Of course I'm a little nervous. But because our group makes about 20~30 concerts each year (or even more) I'm used to play in front of people :3 Just that I'm alone this time XD

So wish me and my group luck and till Monday prolly :D

Oh yea, and for people speaking German, you can follow our groups twitter. I'll update there from time to time and tell ya what's going on on the ETPFI :3
Here our twitter: twitter.com/Crazy_Drummers
And here the page of the ETPFI if you want more info: www.interlaken2010.ch/ only in German or French sorry ^^;

Till later =3

hacked gmail account

Sun Jun 13, 2010, 6:26 AM
Hi Everyone!


Yea, my gmail account got hacked XD
I case you got a weird message from me, I apologize for it, however it was not me who sent it D:
But it's kinda my fault, since I didn't really use a safe password for it. Until now ^^;

So sorry again, I set a new password and the hackers are no longer able to use my account until they find out this new pw XD

Till later =3

PKMN-Battle-Frontier

Sat Mar 20, 2010, 9:00 AM
Hi Everyone!


Yup, I'm part of the great Pkmn-Battle-Frontier! Currently on the road in Round 02!

I might not be the best artist but to participate in this battle will make my drawing-skill rise up! I'm sure :D

You can see all my entries in the folder Pokemon-Battle-Frontier in my Gallery. So far not a lot of stuff in there I know..

Why there's not more of the round two battle you ask? Well, I'm still traveling around and a lot of things are happening on the travel. You can follow my UBF-Twitter Account here twitter.com/UBF_Miingno where you can see right into my world ;D

Thank you!

I would like to thank an awesome friend who fulfilled my commission wish really fast and in such an amazing way! Thanks a lot for this Tama! LazyTurtle



Okay, I'm out in the blizzard again, searching for the flag! Wish me luck ;D

Till later =3

Miga, Sumi, Quatchi and Mukmuk!

Sun Feb 21, 2010, 2:33 PM
Hi Everyone!



You ptobably already heard of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver didn't ya? XD
What you prolly don't know, I love the mascots! :D Miga, Quatchi, Sumi and Mukmuk! I think, they're the best mascots they had so far :3
I was trying to get them somehow as plush-animal, but they're way too expensive ^^;

Anyway, what I wanted to say is, I love them and also found this nice and funny test where you can check which of them you resemble the most! I of course was Quatchi ;P


Why don't ya try it out too and tell me which you are like the most? :D


Oh and this here is my current background I'm using at work. Just love this drawing of the awesome talented TysonTan!

Hi Everyone!


I have a problem with my Tablet and Photoshop. I searched all over the net but could not find a solution, maybe ppl here know what's wrong.

I have a small Wacom Tablet. I set the settings, that it should use the whole screen on the small area (makes sense).
However, ONLY when I use it in Photoshop (CS3), the size changes... I can only use the upper left part in the size of the Tablet and no longer the whole screen D:

Anyone may already had this problem or anyone knows where to change it? D:
As said, the settings are said to use the whole screen, but CS3 ignores this completely ;_;

Thanks in advance!

EDIT!
A few more infos: I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
My tablet is a Wacom Graphire3. Size around Din A6

EDIT 2!
Found a solution here forum.wacom.eu/viewtopic.php?f… and now it's working again :D

Hi Everyone!


Wow my car is sometimes not more then a scrap of metal...

Right when I bought it, I had to find out that the exhaust was rusty and that it leaked oil somewhere. But i could let this get fixed without having to pay anything at all. Thanks a lot for that to my garagist ^^/

Then about a month later it leaked oil again and fuel/gas/benzine too D:
But also this got fixed prety fast and cheap.. luckily..

And now, a few months and xxxx-km later, a spark coil burned out and my car only ran on three cylinder.. had to replace it..

So yea, my car sometimes is just a lil scrap of metal. But it brought me safely from A to B every time so far =3

Hi Everyone!


Pewh...

Lately I really have to work a little bit too much ^^;
Last week was like start at Monday 6:45 and end at Saturday 18:30... But that's just right now a lil bit too much....
In a few weeks all the deadlines with our projects at work will be over and then I have a little bit more time (I hope).

I couldn't do a lot of artwork because of that.. I will once everything cools down.

Also sorry for being so.. unsociable.. But a 100% job is way too time consuming... :(
Oh well..

But other then that, I'm happy and feeling great ^^
Nothing you need to worry about =3

Love ya all ~<3

New Job

Sun Sep 13, 2009, 2:57 PM
Hi Everyone!


Tomorrow I'll start a new job :D

It's near the capital so also close to where I live so I can take my car to get there. I'll be IT-Supporter for about 200~300 Computers and a few servers ^^

This means more money for more stuff :3
But also less time for others, like interwed or hobbies D:
But don't worry.. In a few weeks I'll be able to buy a new mobile phone which will be released then. And once I have it, I can update twitter, facebook and all the other stuff with it whereever I am :D
Until then there may will be a lil lack of stuff from my side ^^; Sorry for that already, I know a few of my friends are already mad at me that I'm never online.. sorry kakkoii~<3 and sapi~<3

Oh, and something compleately different:
Last weekend, me and a few buddies could take part in a music competition. The Brass Band Emmental asked us to be their drummers in a, you can call it play. We tiried to make a wild west scene with a salloon, thena  fight and a nice duel. And everything with music and acting.
The Brass Band is just awesome and together with us we got the second place! And with it the nice price of 4000$ ;3 It's not yet out, how much we will get. All in all we were 36 ppl, so we don't except more then 400$ but hey, nice to have ;3
Once we get pictures and videos I could show them to you, many ppl recorded the show :D

Okay, till next time I will be able to get on here ^^;
And don't spam my message center ;P

My Car

Tue Aug 18, 2009, 6:20 AM
Hi Everyone!


Just wanted to show everyone a picture of my cute lil car :3



Of course it's not a new one. I don't have so much money XD. But it was actually too cheap for how good it still is. Sure it has a few bumps but nothing too serious. No rust and everything is still original.
I might will change something on the color.. adding some patterns... I don't know yet :3

Oh and sorry, but I'm not giving out the number-plate ;P

Hail

Thu Jul 23, 2009, 1:27 PM
Hi Everyone!


Maybe you noticed it, today there was a kinda big thunderstorm over my whole country ^^;
Well sure we had a lot of storms lately. But this time it also brought nice white balls :D HAIL!


Here a lawn in front of the house. Right next to it is a prune-tree but as you can think of, now with a lot less leaves.. Everything was covered with 'em plus a lot of hail...


Here a few of the biggest I could find afterwards. I didn't go out too soon after it stoped, I didn't wanna get hit by a second shower >_<;.. Because it was still about 20°C they melted away really quickly, after around 10 mins you couldn't see most of them anymore <<;
Luckily, none of our cars was outside XD

Hi Everyone!

Anyway, I passed ! :D
Now it's not just that I can drive, I am also allowed to drive a car XD

Just one thing is missing, yes, a car... lol.. have to search for one now X3

Playing the drum for fun

Mon Jun 22, 2009, 2:14 PM
Hi Everyone!


I was away the last two weekends because we had kinda lot of concerts and stuff to do.

12.06.2009 ~ 14.06.2009 - yodel-festival
Yes, you read it right, we were at the yodel-festival!! You might ask, what do drummers at a yodel-festival? We play the drum XD
The music-band from Zweisimmen needed some drummers for the marching parade and asked us to help them out. And we surly said yes, because such festivals are always fun ^^

The festival was in Gstaad, one of the richest places in my region.. wow.. all the people there and all the huge hotels and pompous houses..
Anyway, it was fun.


20.06.2009 ~ 21.06.2009 - Music-Festival canton Bern
Then last weekend we went with the music-band from Eggiwil to "Büren an der Aare". There was the biggest "music for win instruments-festival" in our region.
I know, it sounds kinda strange "music for win instruments" but there's no other term to describe this kind of music in English.. It's kinda unique..
Anyway, it was fun too.

There we also helped with the marching parade. But this time it was not just for fun only, we also got rated! Every music was in a challenge to get the title of the best music in our canton. And I was again part of it ^^
Okay, final result was the 25th place only. But hey, it's nice that we could help =3

By the way, here again four of our drum-group. I'm the one who looks away from the camera (I saw the photographer and looked away ;P)

So I had two nice weekends, but also a lil stressy. But such stress is just fun because you do something great which makes a lot of fun for us ans ppl around us :D

Till later =3

UT/UT

Sun Jun 7, 2009, 2:29 PM
Hi Everyone!


I got called to the army again yesterday. They wanted to talk with me about the next steps and if I'm able to go to the army or not.
And the result was: UT/UT!

UT stands for the German word "untauglich" which means something like "unsuitable" but in German it doesn't have such a big negative meaning as it has in English.. Cannot really translate it ^_^;

Anyway, the first UT is for the army. So NO ARMY FOR ME! Actually I'm kinda glad it turned out like this XP
The second UT is for the "civil defence", the thing you normally do if you can't go to the army here. But because my allergies can be kinda strong if they really start, the doc let me free ^_^/ Thanks!

And this took them all in all two years to find out <_<; They really don't have anything better to do... tsts

So because I am an UT/UT now, I have to pay refund.. But still better to pay a lil then to risk my live because of a small allergy....... rly.. lol

On a different note: I wonder why no one so far tested my mdfwg .... pls do, all things ya need to know stand here news.deviantart.com/article/80…

mdfwg - beta2

Sun May 24, 2009, 10:35 PM
Hi Everyone!


After kinda a while I finally can show the second beta of the my deviantART-friends wallpaper-generator or short mdfwg
You are able to reach it over this link: www.miingno.ch/deviantart/mdfw…

I also made a news article here: news.deviantart.com/article/80…
Just check it out pls =3

And here two of these generated Wallpapers:

:thumb76278797: MyFriends Desktop2 by Miingno

Minor edit:
I removed the CCS again. Didn't really like it, too much stuff on it >_<;

Till later =3
After kinda a while I finaly can show the second beta of the my deviantART-firends wallpaper-generator or short mdfwg

You are able to reach it over this link: www.miingno.ch/deviantart/mdfw…

You may ask, what is it?
It's a generator which let's you create a wallpaper with all the names on your friend list. The only thing you have to do is to enter your name and tadaaa, here it is :D
Here a preview of such a possible wallpaper:

:thumb76278797:

In this newest version I included some new features such as soft values for the font colors, and multiple names can be set to be on top of the others.
Also the time to generate the wallpaper got reduced drastically!
And biggest thing probably is, that with the new profile pages, EVERYONE is able to let generate her or his personal wallpaper! :D

Feel free to test everything out.

Any suggestions can be made directly to me via mail or a note.
But remember, it's still only a beta!
The final release will be even better!

So go on, generate some wallpapers and show the people around you the names of your friends!

And don't worry, the only personal thing you enter is your nickname. No passwords or anything. So no personal data from you. And not even your nickname is getting saved, nothing is stored on the server except the wallpaper it creates for you.
(I write this, because some people were concerned if it's save or not. Trust me, it is, I made it XD )
