Another skin, another feature, ... and coffee

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 10, 2012, 8:18 PM
:iconweida34:




hi all!

i need to put something here so i can see how the sidebox looks like.... so how about something for coffee lovers

You know you're addicted to coffee if:
  • you grind your coffee beans in your mouth
  • you have to watch videos in fast-forward
  • the only time you're standing still is during an earthquake
  • you chew on other people's fingernails
  • your eyes stay open when you sneeze
  • you can jump-start your car without cables
  • you help your dog chase its tail
  • your morning cup of coffee is so strong it wakes up the neighbors
  • the local coffee shop has awarded you "Employee of the Month" and you don't even work there

yay for coffee! :iconcoffeedanceplz:

New skin and feature

Journal Entry: Thu May 17, 2012, 7:47 AM
:iconweida34:




hey, there :iconpoohplz:

trying out the new skin i did together with Valentina-Remenar (that's our 3rd one). and the feature is the best way to do it methinks :)
have to see what all to change in the code and such...


That pesky code...


this is an improved version already, and guess what! here the feature's background is actually tileable :B
had to change the code and the background image for that to work. and now i can't update the original deviation because the number of images used differs from the original :(
meaning i'll have to post this as MetalliC_V2 or something... which i just did!


... anyway, here are some of my most recent favs, enjoy :)

A Quick Update

Journal Entry: Tue May 8, 2012, 11:42 AM


hi all :iconpoohplz:

was kinda busy the last few weeks - "busy" by my standards, that is... - and i found out i definitely can't do multitasking which is why i was absent from here again. this totally sucks but maybe one day i'll learn how to multitask too ;P

i'll keep being a bit unsocial for the next few days even though i'll be online. i'm working on a couple of skins right now, again in collab with Valentina-Remenar ...well, she did her part waaaay back already :B
BUT! i started working on the coding a whole week before the deadline which is a a big improvement for me =P


hope all is well with you guys! cu around :)



free installable skins i did together with Valentina-Remenar so far:

Sketchbook and Nature

My friend's account stolen

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 26, 2012, 1:50 PM


Valentina-Remenar's account stolen


UPDATE:
seems she'll be getting all her accounts back tomorrow :phew:
turned out the hacker's a robin hood kinda guy :)

just got a note from qoex - which is Valentina-Remenar's photo account here on dA that someone's hacked into her main dA account (Valentina-Remenar), as well as her gmail account and her website.

if anyone had similar experience or know what to do in this case, can you please leave a comment for her?



Sketchbook skin is now available for install! enjoy :)



The Spoon Theory :iconspoonplz:

a journal popped up in my inbox yesterday. i look at the title - "Spoons!!" - and i'm like WTF? then i see who it's from and i smile and think to myself, it figures. i mean a few days ago there was a poll from her entitled "Peas".. so, you know, it figures, right :)

i went over there to see what it was all about ... and, well, it changed my perception of illness and it really got me thinking ... not to mention i was moved

ever heard about this Spoon Theory? you can read the article to learn about it. i would also invite you to read Jackie's journal! it inspired a-kid-at-heart and The-Dude-L-Bug to make the following deviations:




:iconjacksl:

since it all started with her (hey, Jac :tighthug:) i'd like to show you some of her works. and a part of that feature is also an interview a fellow deviant beachelf did with her for Hot-Y-Chromosomes group. please go read it you won't be sorry.

the thing i like most about her art is that there's so much of her in it! she feels what she draws and it shows. i was moved by many of her works. you see a lot of perfect realism on dA but not everyone can do what she does - put their feelings in their work

i've met Jackie in person last year and she is just wonderful. first dA friend whom i've met in person too! socializing doesn't come easy to me but around her i felt totally at ease and that tells a lot! thanks so much, Jac, for a wonderful experience!! :huggle:

Sketchbook - free skin

i'm about to release this very skin i'm using right now. it was again done in collaboration with Valentina-Remenar. should've published it more than a year ago... :ashamed:

anyways, before i do i'd appreciate some feedback - how it looks like in different browsers and such... some screenshots from you guys would come in really handy :)

oh, did i mention i'm premium again :D thanks to Valentina-Remenar who's bought me 3 months subscription!
she'll probably kick my ass if i feature her one more time. well, i will anyway - because i can =P :giggle:
thanks, tincek :iconflowerthnxplz: :hug:




  • Reading: Robert J. Sawyer: Wonder
thought it was a joke or something when i got an email from Valentina-Remenar yesterday. turned out to be true :faint:

i got a DD for a journal skin i did last year in collaboration with amazing Valentina-Remenar

just so you know there wouldn't be any skin if not for her and her design, all i did was coding :shrug:
so... i'm only keeping one D and giving the other one to her! :D

she's an extremely talented artist and a nice person too and it would mean a lot to me if you go give her a hug and check out her work :)



well, that much for now
i better concentrate on clearing my inbox, before i start uploading new things :phew:


wish you all a great weekend :hug:
  • Reading: Robert J. Sawyer: Wonder
:iconpoohplz: hi all!

about time i updated this thing...


well, just wanna tell you i'll be away for a week or so - going to London tomorrow. just in case someone thought it was one of my unexplained months-long disappearing acts again ;P
nope, i'm done with those! :B

i hope i won't miss too many of your birthdays :)


take care :hug:

EnterTheShadows
Gothic Sitting by EnterTheShadows WoundedScars on your arms, my dear, what's next?
Burning until your red skin peels and dies?
Or starving yourself until hunger pains
Leave you in bed for weeks on end?
Perhaps slamming your head against a wall?
Then your concussion shall relieve your pain.
You could always break your bones slowly.
I'm certain fingers wouldn't mind that abuse.
Because anything is worth the sacrifice
So that the inner pain abates; peace is reached.
Stub your toes, pull out your hair, bite your own skin,
Claw at your body. Does stupidity know no boundaries?
Honey, I fell into a nest of thorns. Did you expect me to escape unscathed?
4289 -Murdering Numbers-For two ate 9, split him up into equal parts,
Ate until they contented their black hearts.
As if this weren't enough, they ambushed 7;
Their cruelty sent him straight to heaven.
These crazy two numbers next disposed of 0.
6 tried to come to his rescue so they murdered the hero.
The numbers took joy in the bloody death of 5.
They intended to leave not one of their friends alive.
8, oblivious, walked into the massacre
And her death followed shortly thereafter.
1 bravely decided to stand up to this nonsense.
"How dare you idiots descend into madness?"
He said in a quavering voice as he stood before them.
Then he aimed his bright gun, a wonderful emblem.
The beasts surrendered, unable to fight.
No match were they for a bullet's swift flight.
The remaining two numbers threw the fiends in jail
Promising them there was no hope for bail.
The surviving numbers were 4, 2, 1, and 3.
Tell me, which ones could the maniacs be?

beware though, most of it is crap ;P still, among so many (right now 16,705 are listed there) you're bound to find a couple of hundreds of good ones you'll like :D




took me about 5 hours to get this journal together :phew:
i wonder how other people do it.. somehow i doubt they go through the whole galleries of people they feature (?) :B
i did draw the line though where the deviation count went over (several) 1000 :faint: (:wave: hi, Craig :giggle:)

during the trip i learned i still know how to play billiards and even speak dutch *proud* - among maaaaaany other things :)

anyway, i posted some of the photos to my main gallery and almost 50 more to my scraps - they tell a much better story that i ever would :)

i had a hard time making a selection - i took more than 340 pics, with at least 200 of them worth seeing, but this'll have to do :shrug: :)
rado still have to send me his paris shots so maybe i'll post some of them to my scraps as well...

it's nice to be back here though :nod:
:hug:s to all you guys

hey guys :wave:

just wanted to let you know i'll be away for the next 8 days. in about 9 hours i'm going to amsterdam and paris.
at first i wasn't really that enthusiastic about it - being totally broke and all. but now i'm actually looking forward to it. i borrowed some money, so i'll be ok - paying it back will be another story ;P

i'm already afraid of the amount of deviations in my inbox when i get back. there's already almost 500! :O_o:

i borrowed a camera too, so i hope to bring back some cool shots from disney world, aquarium/dolphinarium and whatever else :)

anyway, have fun and see ya all in september :bye:
