Everything is in the title I'm currently enjoying a few days of vacations, so get ready for fresh walls!
By the way... There's one coming out really, really soon
Bad day for me...Hi guys,
I think you already noticed my Vintage Actions preview that I posted last year (october 25th, 2010), and also that I still didn't finish them... Don't blame me (well, somehow that's my fault, but be nice please ) but my heavy studies !
A couple days ago, a very rough storm got onto my home; now almost all electronic devices are out of order, and so is the computer I was working on... Thus, to sum up, my HDD is fully destroyed, and I lost almost every data I had, including those freaking actions I left aside!!
Anyway, now I'm pretty much in holidays for a few weeks, so I promiss I'll do my best to start all over again, and to offer you the actions I showed in the preview
Finally found some time!Hey mates,
As you noticed I've been very busy those weeks, blame the studies
For now I'm in holidays for a few days, so I'll try to finish the bunch of actions I've shown in my Vintage Actions preview, or at least to offer you some of them.
So keep an eye on your deviantWATCH Messages, you'll probably find some of my work there in a few days...
As we say in my country, passez de bonnes fêtes !
New York Trip!Hey everyone,
One of my best friends just came back from his 15 days trip abroad to New York (we both live in France), and he kindly brought me a bunch of photos.
Unfortunately, you know what it looks like : vacations photos, took by a non-professional guy, with bad colors and exposition... But he still took them with a Sony Alpha, so although the photos are not great, they have a pretty nice resolution/quality.
Because he wants to make a full album of those photos, he asked me to photoshop them. And here starts the huge work : I've already begun to modify them, one by one with its own settings, and I'd really like to share them with you when I'll be done with it.
As I really care about details, I had to delete the blurry or moving ones, or those I though they had no interest at all. So I hope you'll apreciate the ones I picked up from this big amount of pictures!
Well, now I'm going back to work

Another contest... made in FranceHi everyone!
This time I'm having a contest for the FranceOfficiel avatar group! I did it very late, the contest was supposed to have ended since several days, but I asked the persission to take part of it all the same. I was finally accepted, but the public vote for the best avatar had already started, and more than 100 deviants had already voted
But today, I was told that my avatar had won the moderator vote, and now takes the final vote, between my avatar and the winner of public vote's one. So, if you're by my side, please vote for me
The poll takes place here : http://franceofficiel.deviantart.com/, it's on the left sidebar at the middle of the page. The votes are going to grow exponentially since this final vote has just started.
Thank you fellow watchers!
Are you supporting me?Hey mates,
Yesterday I figured out that the CustomizersLounge group was organizing an avatar contest for the month, so I thought that was a pretty cool idea to try to win it! To be honest, I never got into a contest, and I don't really know if the work I've done will be good enough to make me win, so I'd like you to tell me what do you think about it, your impressions and feelings, what I could try to get better for the next time... Don't hesitate to criticize, I'm here to learn from you
Click here to see the avatar I made, and please comment it... As you will see, I tried to animate it, everything was made with Photoshop CS5 Extended, do you think it was a good idea?
I hope to get many comments on this avatar, the contest ending up next month, you've got all your time
Thank you all and have a nice day,
Bad and good news...Hey guys,
A couple of weeks ago I've had some bad and irreversible issues with my hard disk, which used to have loads of bad sectors, and it quickly got broken. Because of that, I unfortunately lost all my work, that I didn't backup obviously... That's it for the bad news.
In a few days, I'm gonna have some exams, which will end up next wednesday. Just after this, I'll be able to start and try new things with the brand new powerful Photoshop CS5 Extended. So, I hope that I'll get inspired to keep up the work.
Don't hurry up, that won't come very soon, but I promiss I'll do my best!
The PC is gone, long live the PC!Hey everyone!
As you've seen this week end, I've been working a lot on my actions, spending all my time on Photoshop so that I can make the greatest work as possible for you. There's no doubt, this was a really good idea, I just have to watch how many views, downloads, favourites, DeviantWatchs and even Llamas I've got in only two days! For some old members of DeviantArt, that could seem very few, but to my eyes that's just a huge ammount of congratulations.
But during these two days, I've just faced the sad reality that my computer was too old. I've never had any problem when I was playing to my games, even in those like Crysis, Just Cause 2, Metro 2033, Assassin's Creed 2... But this was only because I still had a great graphic card. Then, when I come back to Photoshop, it becomes slow, heavy, and I even had some issues to save one of my latest actions.
So I decided to change this. And to change it to the extreme! Since several years I was running on a poor Core 2 Duo E8500, a
The Art of MisunderstandingCompliments are a bit of a tricky and weird thing.
Especially on an international webpage.
=> the misunderstanding
In Switzerland you can tell someone who's a cool person that they are "en geile siech". Now, this is a really big compliment here, even though it's not considered the most polite vocabulary. Still, big compliment.
If you translate that 1:1 into any other language, you will tell the other person they are a sexually arousing and rotting corpse of a horse.
Don't do that, most people don't will look kindly on it. d:
Of course the same problem exists in the other way too. I was feeling rather saddened by the first one who told me that my drawings are "da shit". I had NO idea that this is a positive thing! I just assumed the other person told me that my works were bad. Thankfully, I asked them why they thought of my drawings as bad, which helped clearing that misunderstanding up really fast.
=> "Looks like Ghibli!"
After a few years on dA, I started to hate

DARPG Personality Maker RNGTo Use:
For each category simply open up random.org and put 1 in the min section and the max number given next to each category in the max section and hit generate. Do this with all or only some of the categories, if you don't like what you get you can always re-role.

1. Lazy: I don't focus. Being a couch potato is more appealing.

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category
