Journal Entry: Wed Sep 29, 2010, 10:34 AM
My 5-year-old Wacom Graphire tablet died yesterday. *sob* I'll probably buy a new one in December=(

Looks like I'll have to get back to my pens and pencils.

Ok so now that I have to put off all digital stuff and work more with traditional media, maybe YOU could give me some ideas hmm?

po ponad roku wreszcie cos pisze :D

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 18, 2008, 1:30 PM
Niedawno zauważyłam, że ostatni journal został napisany w zeszłym roku we wrześniu:roll: Postanowiłam zmienić wreszcie css'a, tamtent stary był zbyt mroczny:P

Ostatnie trzy tygodnie był dla mnie cholernie ciężkie, wiedziałam że z zapisywaniem się na seminaria dyplomowe będzie jeden wielki cyrk, ale nie myślałam, że będzie aż TAK źle, i aż TAK chamsko. No cóż, teraz już po wszystkim, trafiłam na Katedrę Biologii Medycznej, czyli chyba nieźle... tak mi się wydaje:P (Grunt że nie na matematykę... Albo na ochronę środowiska... brr:fear:)

Już od jakiegoś czasu zbieram siły do rysowania komiksu, może niedługo się za to wezmę. (No, może nie tak za niedługo, sesja się zbliża, a do zakucia jest cała biologia molekularna... "Genomy" machają już do mnie rączką:ohnoes: T-r-a-g-e-d-i-a.)
Na razie bazgram sobie trochę w Manga Studio i sprawdzam funkcje tego programiku. Nawet daje radę, w każdym razie można robić w nim lepsze lineart niż w Photoshopie, no i nie wiesza się jak Painter.
A to przykład moich bazgrołów:

2. Each person tagged must post 8 random (hopefully interesting) facts about themselves
3. Tags should write a journal of these facts
4. At the end of the post 8 more bloggers are tagged and named
5. Go to their page and leave a comment telling them they're tagged

The facts:
1. I've got acrophobia and arachnophobia. So atavistic :x

3. My fave numbers are multiples of 6 for some reason.
4. Six years spent in a Catholic school made me a die hard agnostic.
5. I talk to my cat very often >_> (It's the cutest creature in the world<3)
6. During lectures I often draw silly comic strips, "Adventures of the Happy Caliper". They're just extremely stupid (and badly drawn, too), but the Happy Caliper became a cult character among my fellow students:roll:
7. I'd like to have a snake :< (chameleon would also do)
8. My memory for books is really bad, it often happens that I read a book one day and the next day I can't remember ANYTHING:roll:

Should you have any questions - ask:)

So here are the characters:

Aliele
:thumb54835528:
Aliele is an elven sorceress and a former dragon rider. When it comes to magic, she always wished to surpass all others what led her to contact with Ruagh. This dangerous familiarity eventually resulted in destruction of her homeland. She believes she's the last one of her kind, although this isn't actually true. Now her goals are aimed at getting rid the world of evil (or rather her own perception of it).
Aliele is distrustful and mean at times. Being confident of her righteousness, she's always ready to sacrifice anything (except her own life) and anyone to achieve her goals. She considers Aveline as her major adversary.
Now that was some serious stuff 8D
Aliele likes to play instruments, mainly violin and piano; she also likes to wear expensive dresses. She keeps several magical birds at home - they remind her of the old days;]

Aveline
:thumb54835661:
Aveline is a creature of unknown origin and unknown age. She's cunning, relentless and vain. To those who don't know her well enough, she seems to be kind-hearted, but it's just a façade - she actually despises everyone but herself. She seeks to destroy the creatures designed and created by the so-called Scientist (she considers their existence as a blasphemy against nature). To obtain her goals, she summons various kinds of supernatural entities. Darshana also taught her necromancy, but not very willingly. Aveline never questions her actions and their consequences, because she believes that what she does serves the greater good.

Ruagh
Contest ref: Ruagh by Apsaravis
Ruagh belongs to the Great Blue Dragon species. It's a deceitful creature, and also overwhlemingly greedy. He justifies his wrong deeds saying that treachery and greed are rooted deep in his kind's nature and thus they cannot be eradicated. Despite these features, Ruagh doesn't think he is evil.
He helped Aliele gain more powers and her trust in him was tragic in consequences, as written somewhere above.
Later on, Ruagh had to fight his own kind to keep all the elves' treasures for himself. He was defeated and forced to flee.

Rajani
:thumb54835791:
Rajani is a queen praised and admired by her kind. Her husband was killed during a hunt - she suspected Darshana of having organized it. She is aware of the fact that Darshana is keen to take over the throne, but she prefers tu turn a blind eye to it (some of the priests and priestesses are her cousins, including Darshana).
Rajani cares about her people and is seen as just, merciful and gracious, almost divine, but towards her foes she is cruel and ruthless.
She owns a great menagerie, where many sorts of dangerous animals (mainly snakes) are kept. Rajani also enjoys hunting.

Darshana
:thumb54835851:
Darshana is a high priestess with a great lust for power - that's why she's in constant conflict with Rajani. She is always plotting against the queen; she has already managed to have the king killed and so far it hasn't been found out that Darshana stood behind it.
Darshana has mastered various sorts of magic and divination. She is sometimes asked for help by Aveline, but she isn't willing to share her knowledge with anyone.

Personal website:)

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 30, 2007, 10:10 AM
I've opened my website at last - + Hylaios +
It was made quite a long time ago actually, but I couldn't decide for the name. Yesterday I came up with "Hylaios" (Gr., 'belonging to the forest') :)
It works best in Firefox at the screen resolution 1280x1024 px.
I haven't put all my works there, only the ones I like personally.
It's not my first website and I hope it looks good, and that everything works as it should:D

By the way - the contest will be announced soon (probably the next week), so stay tuned!
