I`ve got NEWS !!!

Sat May 28, 2005, 11:42 AM
Just came back from Hamburg some minutes ago!It was so cool!Well, not literally, the sun was beating down all the time and it was still hot at 10.00 pm making us sweat a little too much but everything else was fine!I dunno where to start, I`m so excited at the moment. *takes a deep breath to calm down* Okay, let`s start with our visit at the Animation School Hamburg.After running in the wrong direction and going a loooong way round we finally found the school half an hour later than we had planned.It`s nothing extraordinary ( the building and such ), I have to admit , but the manager was really, really nice!We talked about the school and our art for almost an hour.Also showed him some examples of our works and he was quite impressed by it.But he told us what was most important when sending our maps for candidacy.I`ve tried for SO long getting better at drawing backgrounds, shading/colouring and adding at least some details.But he said that what they`re looking for are especially simple drawings of people and animals in different poses.And with "simple" he means no shading,no details,no background, just the basic lines.I was like "WTF!?Why am I making those complicated pics anyway!?" :XD:  He also meant that our chances of being chosen were good. :)
To our surprise Wolvy and I got two extremely cheap tickets for the "Dance of the Vampires"-musical.Haha,we`re lucky!That musical was really wonderful and had great music!Yep,yep.
Today we went to the harbor of Hamburg where we visited a sailing ship that had been transformed into a museum.We tried to capture it but to our shock it had no sails.What a great sailing ship! :rofl: Besides that we went to the zoo,which is really beautiful by the way, and a port round trip.Hamburg is a real pirate city,with the harbor and all, and the people were very nice to us.I so can imagine living there. *grins*

But now I have some important news for all "Treasure Planet/Island" fans.
( :iconabby-angie:, I mean you above all! :D )
On thursday we went to a big book store and in the English novels-section I found...a sequel to "Treasure Island"!!!
If you tell me "Oh,what`s the fuss about?That book isn`t a new release,everybody knows about it." then let me ask you something :
Why did nobody tell me about it !!?? -_-
Okay, for those of you who don`t know that a sequel to Robert Louis Stevenson`s novel exists, go and read it!I started reading it when I was still in the book store. ^^;  I`ve read 85 pages till now and here`s what I like and not like.

*** Spoilers ! ***

The writing style is very similar to Stevenson`s original book, what is great!It`s also stirring and not a bit boring and I can`t wait to read more of it.What I don`t like that much is the plot. I think it`s best  to write down the summary from the back side of the book :

"It is ten years since the Hispaniola sailed with its hoard of gold from Treasure Island.Now twenty-four, Jim Hawkins is doing well as a boastful local hero.Life is comfortable, if not exciting-until a beautiful young woman in distress appears.Smitten, Jim is soon led into some very rough waters.With no alternative, he returns to "that accused island", where his comrades marooned three mutinous pirates a decade earlier, and learns the fate of Joseph Tait-the most murderous buccaneer of them all..."

That sounds like so many fanfictions I`ve read!Beautiful woman comes to Jim, asks for help, Jim doesn`t know her but helps her because she`s pretty and he`s got a crush on her. :pissedoff:  :heartbreaker: Besides that, the summary is a bit confusing.In the book it`s said that Jim took over the running of the inn when he was 21 but a few pages later it`s said that he`s is 17 and not 24 when that chick appears. :confused:  
She`s extremely beautiful ( I hate her ! ), has pale skin, is or was kinda wealthy and has a twelve-year-old son!Hallo!?She has to be around 30 years, that`s a bit too old for Jim!And she tells everybody she meets about why she has to find that Joseph Tait-guy, only Jim doesn`t have a clue why he`s risking so much for her.And I`ve given up my hope for that Tait being her husband ´cause it would be too predictable and unoriginal.I don`t want Jim getting married to some chick! AAARRRGH!!!...But I`m gonna read that book nonetheless. Even if I have to kill Francis Bryan ( the author of the sequel ) afterwards. :stab:

Genesis is cool !

Thu May 12, 2005, 2:43 AM
Got a "Best of Genesis"-CD yesterday!Phil Collins rocks! ^___^ *starts dancing and singing*

It`s almost a month since I bought my new laptop and after some problems it finally works.Have installed all programms and pictures I need but the internet still doesn`t work.We found out why, we`ve got a so called W-Lan ´cause only my Dad has a real connenction with flat-rate and my brother and I have that W-Lan that connects our computers with his.But now there`s a problem,I won`t go into more detail since I don`t really understand it myself and ´cause it would sound even weirder in English. *lol* My Grandpa and my Dad are looking for a solution but I don`t know how long it will last until I can go online on my OWN computer again. *is annoyed*

Last week I`ve started with taking driving lessons.I gotta mention that I`m 20 years now and only finally decided to make my driver`s license ´cause my family and friends were keeping telling me to for 2 years. I don`t like cars, well, I mean I prefer to let others drive.And going by train is more comfortable and considering the rising prices for gasoline not more expensive...and you don`t have to be afraid of overrun innocent pedestrians. :P However, had 5 hours during the last 3 days, that was a bit too much for me.I hate the clutch!!! *arrgh* My driving teacher said I would be too cruel to the gear shift.I don`t even notice it!He tells me to be more relaxed and gentle and I say "I AM relaxed!" XP Driving looks much more easy than it really is...at least for me. *cars are stupid*

I watched a TV-show called "Stern TV" yesterday and there was a report about the white tigers of a German safari park.10 days ago the animal keeper went to look after the tigers and to her surprise she saw 3 new-born cubs lying next to the mother tiger.Nobody had known that she was pregnant!One of the babies had to be taken away from their mother because it was ill and too weak and now the animal keeper raises it.It`s so cute! *huggles the little white tiger cubs*

I`m so sick of it...

Sat Apr 23, 2005, 4:38 AM
Why can`t I have a computer that works WITHOUT any problems!!??Since my old computer didn`t work properly anymore I bought a laptop a week ago.It worked really fine, I had no problems...till yesterday.I wanted to install my scanner but since that thing was only supposed to work with Windows 98 and I have Windows XP it didn`t work.My Dad told me to download a driver from the Hewlett Packard-homepage,I did it and my scanner worked.But when I tried to boot my laptop today it didn`t work!I just got a message that  I should install a boot driver or something like that.My parents aren`t at home this weekend so I phoned my Dad and he suggested to install Windows XP again.
I did so ( with some complications ) but now all my pictures and programmes were deleted!Okay,I fortunately have saved most of them on CDs but not a commission I had almost finished! >_< Besides I have to install and copy all that stuff again!And when I reboot the damn thing there are also problems with it.

The notebook has a 2-year warranty but however!I used it only for a week and it already doesn`t work!?It`s not a laptop from the supermarket,it`s a really good one,one of the best laptops avaiable ( at least for the money I have ).

I`m so fed up of those stupid machines,every time I think I have a computer that works something bad happens.It makes me feel so powerless and angry amd sad that I`m crying right now...I-I hate it!!! :worry:

F*** computer!

Sun Apr 10, 2005, 8:04 AM
I`m sorry but those people who have comissioned a pic from me will have to wait a little longer.I`ve already finished the sketches and inked them but I`ve got problems with my computer.

It`s the old one of my Dad because he bought a new one for himself some months ago.If I had known that I would have nothing but problems with that stupid thing I would have kept my own computer.First it crashed almost every time I went to Deviantart, then also when I listened to CDs on the Windows Media Player and/or worked on more than one drawing-programme.Last week we brought it to a computer expert but he couldn`t find the error and now there`s even more of them!I can`t go online because the internet connection doesn`t work ( am sitting at my Dad`s comp now ).I drew a new picture with Photoshop 7.0. and...okay,before telling you more I have to explain that there`s a problem I don`t manage to solve.

Every time I make a new picture with Photoshop and save it to jpg.-format its colours are slightly changed when I open it in another programme or upload it on the web.For example, reddish parts of the pic get slightly greenish,blue parts turn to purple.So I make a screenshot of my finished pics in Photoshop,insert it in Corel Photo Paint ( another drawing-programme ) and save it there as jpg. because then the original colours remain. *is convinced of confusing you* Sorry. ^^"
But now,suddenly, the quality of the picture after having inserted it in Corel Ph.P. was worse than usual,the colours weren`t smooth and so on.I didn`t know why because I had never have this problem before so I deleted the programme and wanted to install it again.But there was another error during the installation-procedure telling me that "Corel Photo Paint" couldn`t be found and therefore couldn`t be installed.I spent hours on trying to fix the problem and all I got was a nervous breakdown and yelling at the f*** thing! >_<
Tomorrow my Mom and I will look for cheap laptops ´cause my Dad said that a laptop is as good as a computer with the advantage of not needing as much space.And I can take it with me when I travel.Well,what irks me the most is that a laptop will cost me at least 1200 Dollars...wish I had kept my old computer...

Gonna quit my job

Mon Mar 28, 2005, 7:55 AM
I`m so fed up with my job!I had planned to work at the DIY-superstore till July ( and then hope the animation school in Hamburg will take me ) but right now I want nothing more than to quit the damn work!My boss is still getting on my nerves, acting like he`s Mr.Perfect although he doesn`t do anything else than walking through the store and controlling us now and then to make sure we do our work right, making stupid statements or drinking coffee/smoking cigarettes.And although a bunch of men is working there,too,it`s usually the two other women and me who have to place in the heavy things.We have to take the trouble how we get things like wrapped cabinets,little shelves,sacks of concrete,etc. to the places they`re supposed to be at and it`s not unusual that I`m standing on a ladder with a very weighty item because it has to be placed in the highest shelf!And while struggling with it I see the "strong men" either strolling around ´cause they don`t have anything else to do or putting light bulbs,candles,etc. into the shelves!Candles!While the women almost fall off the ladder because of the heavy things they have to carry!I don`t wanna do that anymore.It`s not worth the indeed little money we get.So I`m gonna quit tomorrow.
But that`s the problem,I will still need money and since I`m not sure if and when I`ll find another job I`m thinking about taking commissions.Now,before I start selling my art I need your help with the prices.How much can I demand for my pictures?Are 20-35$,depending on the colouring media,the number of characters,background,...too much for a picture?Or 10 $ for a sketch/inked drawing?Not sure about that...What would you suggest?

TP-comic

Tue Mar 15, 2005, 5:32 AM
Waaahhh!I just got a special edition of the "Mickey Mouse"-magazine I had won at Ebay.The description said it would include a comic of "Treasure Planet".I thought it`s the German version of the one I already have but now I saw that it`s a completely different one!It`s the ( short ) comic I`ve been searching for ever since TP was released ´cause I had seen it at a TP-fansite somewhere.Never thought that it`s in a German magazine! XD
I`m gonna upload it on my homepage,but as I told ya,it`s in German...learn German! *lol*

Just got a note from the Deviantart-people that my photomanipulation "Part of His World" was removed because of copyright violation!That means I should have asked the Disney guys before uploading a screenshot from one of their movies.What the...!?I clearly meantioned that it`s a screenshot done by others and that it`s (c)Disney,I did it just for fun and not for money or stuff like that and it got deleted nevertheless??? Don`t those Deviantart-guys have anything better to do?I`ve seen so many people uploading screenshots or posters, wha don`t they let me??? *is frustrated* Oh well,I plan tp make a few more screenshotmanipulations and I`m gonna let ya know when I`ve uploaded them on my TP-homepage. *grumbles*

Back from Paris!

Mon Mar 7, 2005, 11:07 AM
Heya guys! *waves*

Paris was sooo much fun!Okay,the 12-hour bus trip was terribly boring and the weather could`ve been better ( snow,rain and coldness most of the time ) but everything else was great!We arrived in Paris on Thursday midday and went to the Champs Elysées in the afternoon.There Wolvy and I attacked the two Disney Stores and the Toy'R'Us. *lol*
On the next day we took part in a sightseeing tour which turned out be be kinda odd since we just drove by every interesting building. "Oh,look,there`s Notre Dame!...And here we leave Notre Dame..." XP The reason for that is that there are as good as no parking places near the sights! :P So we had to go there by train ourselves.Did our best but we couldn`t find Quasimodo.He`s hiding from us!One day we`ll find you,Quasi!Mwuahahaha!!!Also went to the Opera of Paris,it`s really an awesome building!Not kitschy or swanky,noooo! *g* And even here there was not a scrap of Erik!What`s the Opera without the phantom!?Well, it seems he and Quasi don`t wanna meet us. -_-
On Saturday we went to Disneyland.It was cold and rainy so we thought that not many people would be there and that we wouldn`t have to wait too long at the attractions.Yeah,right!There were such huge amount of people,it was like last summer when we were there.It was fun, nonetheless,especially our favourite,the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ( 3 times! *arrrr* ). The only thing which was a bit disappointing was the merchandise in the stores.Almost only from the Pixar movies ( especially ugly stuff from "The Incredibles") Winnie the Pooh and the Disney Princesses.Fortunately they had something from "Lilo and Stitch",too. ^___^

So in the whole the trip was really cool! *grins*

Back online!!! ^___^

Wed Feb 16, 2005, 11:28 AM
My Disney Homepage "Dolphy`s Disney Den" is finally back online!I`m really sorry that it was off for so long but here`s what happened :

At the beggining of December I got a mail from Freenet.de ( the site where I`ve hosted my homepage ) that I had reached the limit of my downlaod-traffic.That means too many people where downloading too many of my pictures and I was told to delete the files which were responsible for the immense downloads.Otherwise they would deny access to my site ( what they did).But since it would be kinda stupid to delete all the art of an art-site I had two choices : Either pay for the exceeding of the traffic-limit ( which costed a lot of money! ) or move to another provider.I opted for the second solution and decided to move to United Domains.So I sent a written notice to Freenet.de that they should cancel my homepage since I wanted to move.Taibu ( a friend of mine ) let me put my site on his server and gave me as much webspace as I need ( so I won`t have to delete old pics  when I upload new ones like I had to do in the past).But the biggest problem was that I wanted to keep my url "www.dolphys-disney-den.de". As I said, I wrote to Freenet but got no response.After some weeks I sent them an E-mail asking whether they had gotten my letter or not and it took some more days until I got the message that they had recieved it.They told me that I had to sent a so called "KK-Antrag" to United Domains, a confirmation that I wanted to move my domain to them.Then U.D. had to sent that confirmation back to Freenet and wait for their confirmation so they could transfer my domain. And "this letter and confirmation-war" lasted over 2 months. >_<

Arrgh...

Mon Feb 14, 2005, 9:48 AM
Asked my boss today if I could take a week off since I`m gonna go to Paris with :icondodgermd: at the beginning of March.I`m just a stand-in so I didn`t think that it would be a big problem.Now I have to say that my boss is a real jerk,he doesn`t seem to be older than maybe 30 and for some reason he loves getting on my nerves.So I asked him today after work :

Jerk : "ONE WEEK!!??What are you planning to do in that week???"
Me *annoyed* : "Do I HAVE to tell you?"
Jerk : "Yeah."
Me *sighs* : "I wanna go to Paris."
Jerk : "Paris!?Again?"
Me *confused* : "What?I haven`t been to Paris since I started working here!"
Jerk : "But...what are you gonna do in PARIS???"
Me *grumbling* : "I`m gonna visit the city with my friend." ( He knew that my friend is female. )
Jerk : "You go their with your friend!?But why with your friend!?"
Me : "Huh?"
Jerk : "I mean, Paris, it`s the 'City of Love'!"
Me *even more annoyed* : "Who else should I take with me!?"
Jerk : "Your boyfriend!"
Me *sarcastic laugh* : "Pfff!!!"
Jerk *confused* : "What?
Me : "Oh please, believe me, it`s much more fun with my friend!"
Jerk *looks at me oddly*

Geez, there`s more in life than meeting men!Some of them really seem to think that the world`s revolving around them! *rolls eyes*

( Gah, my grandpa was just here.He knows how I hate it when somebody`s looking over my shoulder when I type things on the computer, so he refused to go.Loves to annoy me. -_- But I love him nonetheless. ^^ )

Okay,were was I?Ah,yes, my jerky boss.Who does he think he is?And that stupid statement with "Paris,the 'City of Love'"!Do only couples in love have the right to go there!?Idiot...

( Okay, this time it was my Mom...Why do people always interrupt me when they see that I`m busy??? )

The next one who annoys me will be shot... :pirate:

Heya guys!

At first I wanna thank everybody who wrote me comments,added me/my pic to their favourites and voted for me. *hugs ya all* I really appreciate that.

But as for the news about the drawing contest,I didn`t win.Lost against  two (of course abstract) paintings.
1st : www.ecultart.de/eventCultStar/…
( nearly 27 % of the votes )
2nd :  www.ecultart.de/eventCultStar/… ( about 20 % )
3rd : me , with not more than 14 %

I don`t mind losing,but why against two pictures my little brother could have drawn!?Why do most of the people expect art to be something abstract with a hidden ( or made up ) meaning? >_<
But oh well,my pic has more than 550 favourites here on DA,never imagined that something like that would happen. ^_^

Thanks again,everybody!

Yeah,uhm,just listening to the "Brother Bear"-soundtrack.

Feeling not too enthusiastic lately.I don`t feel like drawing and when I force myself to do so it either takes an eternity or the result is just pathetic.It`s as if I`ve reached a point where I don`t get any better,I mean,I draw,I do my best and the pics don`t look like I had imagined them.I still have serious problems with human anatomy and although I have drawn Jim more often than I can remember he still looks off-character in certain pics.And I don`t manage it to get better or fix those problems.Sometimes I also run out of ideas,I sit in front of my sketchbook and all I can think of drawing is another lioness.Great. >_< And then I look at other artists` works and even their quick pencil sketches look better than some of the pics I`ve spent hours on!I don`t know if it`s just a temporarily crisis or something worse.Just..dunno...
Some weeks ago I have won some auctions at Ebay but I guess the postal service hates me since I haven`t gotten one of them yet!And the packages should have arrived here long ago.
Plus the fools at Amazon.de have forgotten my order from 3 months ago,I bought a Disney calendar and it didn`t arrive.I wrote them two E-mails and they told me that the package couldn`t be delivered. o_O So my Mom ordered the calendar again from her Amazon-account.I`m really interested if I`m gonna get it now.
What else...Oh,yeah,I`ve gotten a job,since my Mom kept complaining about me sitting at home and doing nothing. -_- Our local toy store didn`t need anymore employees so all I got was a job at a DIY superstore.I have to work there for some hours,5 days a week.It`s not what I would call a fun-job but at least I`m earning some money now. *shrugs*
Well,the only effect that this has on me yet is that I`m tired and not keen on doing anything.

Oops,almost forgot that I still have to tell you about my trip to Florida.Heh. ^^"

It was soooo cool there!We went to everyone of the Disney Parks.The first one we visited was Animal Kingdom.Heh,we watched the Festival of the Lion King 3 times since we liked it so much.They had a 2 metre tall Simba who was standing on Priderock!I wanted to steal him and take him home with me but that would`ve been a little too conspicuous. *lol* On the Kilimanjaro Safari we saw lotsa African animals like giraffes,an elephant mother with her baby and antelopes.The Dinosaur-ride and the Bug`s Life-3D-show was pretty cool,too, except of the spiders which suddenly came from the ceiling (no real ones,of,course,but I nearly got an heart attack nevertheless). *hates spiders*
I can`t tell you everything we did in Magic Kingdom,the MGM-studios and Epcot since it was REALLY much!I had expected more in MGM,though,for example a real Behind-the-scenes look into animation studios.Ya know,like watching real animators work but all we saw was a short movie about animating characters,the same one I`ve seen 3 times at Disneyland Paris.
-_- But n the evening there was a firework show called Fantasmic,ya can`t imagine how cool that was!They projected scenes from Disney movies onto water fountains!Mickey as sorcerer stood at the top of a big rock in the middle of a lake and suddenly the black dragon from Sleeping Beauty appeared and fought against him!It was simply breathtaking with the fireworks and the music!
On two days we went to the water parks Typhoon Lagoon where I swam with (little) sharks and Blizzard Beach which was built like a winter landscape.Well,a winter landscape with temperatures of 100° Fahrenheit. XD
And Sea World!I finally touched dolphins and even fed them!They are so cute!Don`t feel like wet rubber like I`ve heard once but much softer.There even were two new-born babies! Dolphin babies!I`ve never seen something so cute in my whole life!And then I saw that almost 3-metre long orca-baby.Awwwww!!!They even had false killerwhales and beluga whales.Although I must admit that the basins were really much too small,I had expected them to be bigger. :/ What else?Uhm,oh yes,I touched stingrays.Feel like wet mushrooms. *lol*
Then we took part in an airboat safari where we saw alligators and after that we visited the Kennedy Space Center.Impressive!They had real rockets there ( at least I think they were real.) :P
Orlando is really a shopping paradise!I spent so much money on Disney and dolphin-merchandising and since my Mom couldn`t resist many things she had seen there,too,we had to buy another suitcase in order to get all the stuff back home. XP
I`m gonna upload some photos soon but since I took quite a lot I first have to see which ones are the bests.
Dolphy is back!
Finally!And I have to say that I hate Frances!Ya knowm,the hurricane.And I hate United Airlines!Why?I`m gonna tell ya.

Thursday night , September 2nd :

Due to safety reasons we were moved from the 16th floor of our hotel to the 3rd one.

Friday night  :

Our hotel was evacuated since they still had some problems after hurricane Charly and didn`t want to risk too much.So we had to move to another hotel.

Saturday :

We were sitting in our room the whole day.Booooring!

Sunday :

We were supposed to fly in the morning but the Orlando airport was closed so we had to spend another night at the hotel.The hurricane wasn`t nice at all but since we weren`t in the near of the coast it wasn`t really dangerous.Everybody in the hotel was like „Oh my God,send everybody home!Let`s pray!Get water reserves and flashlights and whatever you do,don`t go out of your room!“etc. I mean,okay,people were still scared because of Charly but what I`ve experienced on this day wasn`t much worse than a storm we had in Bavaria only a week before we`ve went to Florida.There were fallen trees and damage like you know it from storms in the USA,too,but nobody was like "We`re gonna die!".I understand that people were scared in Florida but isn`t a 24-hour TV-show and newspapers which only write about the hurricane a little too much?Everybody was acting like the end of the world was coming.Sorry if I offend anyone,it`s just my personal opinion.(I`m talking about what was going on in Orlando,not the coast areas.I know that Frances did a lot more damage there.)

Monday :

Our original flight from Sunday, Orlando-Chicago-Munich, was changed into Orlando-Washington-Zurich-Munich.We had to wait over 2 hours to get our tickets and ran to our gate where our flight had a delay of about 1 hour and 45 minutes.In Washington D.C. we jumped out of the plane (you know what I mean *g*)  and dashed through the airport to our next gate,only to realize that our connecting flight to Zurich had left just a few minutes ago.So we spent again over 2 hours at the customer service and almost an hour at the ticket counter to get a new flight to Germany.Since there was nothing else left except a plane to Paris on the next day we had to stay at a hotel in Washington for the night.

Tuesday/Wednesday :

The flight from Washington to Paris was delayed again (what a surprise!) and we hardly managed to get our connecting flight to Munich.And now the best thing of all :
We haven`t gotten our luggage yet!And the guys at the airport don`t even know where it is! Ain`t that great!? *sarcastic laugh* Not that this was anything new,our luggage didn`t arrive with us as we came to Orlando two weeks ago but they found it and we got it in the next morning.Just hope it didn`t get lost now. *curses the United Airlines company*

So,uhm,yeah,it took us two days to get back home and I`m awake for more than 24 hours know and DAMN tired!I`ll tell ya about the two weeks in Florida ( which were really fantastic!) tomorrow or...whenever I`ll wake up again. XP
