What happened since then…

•12 janvier 2010 • Laisser un commentaire

I got to admit that it isn’t my first attempt to open a blog, but I fear that once again this one just suffered from the same disease that the other died for… but I’m not going to let this happen not this time because before opening TCR I promise myself that it’ll be a success. So let’s go backward to everything that happened since I last post something.

After the shoot of JB Mpiana video clip it went on post-production, editing, etc. well since then I have no idea of where it went because I had to quit the agency I worked for and also quit the country. I went to South Africa, to find a university suitable for my ambition of glory and money ^^. It was, I should say, I disturbing experience to find out that my country had so much to learn from SA, it’s not like I wasn’t warned, but it’s something to see it by yourself. So I found a University, visited museums, art galleries, squares and theaters (nearly cried over my first ballet) and went back to my country to apply for a study permit. This is how 2009 ended.

2010 started with a lot of promises, a lot of good resolution and nearly as much expectation. I’m currently finishing a book, I started reading several years ago; actually it’s an eleven book saga that I fell in love with in 2003. I was thinking of illustrating it to test my skill in storytelling and composition. It’s not going very well right now because I’m not really satisfied of my way of drawing characters, but then making them more realistic (because that’s the issue) is really a pain in the ass for me, anatomy not being my most valuable asset… I’m also afraid of colors, every time I think of coloring an artwork I end up ruining it. The only justification I can find is that the last time I used water color was in 2002 and even then I was a little afraid of it. I tried digital painting…with a mouse (hey tablet pen are expensive), not really proud of the result. One thing I did try and loved was inking with brushes and using different shade of gray, maybe I should stick with that since I have not enough balls to water paint again (but colors are just sooooo beautiful =’(

Many of my own stories are just there, waiting for the right time to shine, when others thrive in my head. It sometime surprise me how a color, an association words, an object, a concept can lead me into creating worlds of my own. The thing is I don’t want them to be my own anymore I want to share them with you and that’s what make me always unsure of my capacities, the fact that I want to make the people reading me feel the same way as I feel when I create.

Anyway, now you know exactly what I’ve been through the last months, and I’ll try my best to keep on sharing on TCR what’s happening around me. I’m starting the Book nine of the Wheel of Time: A Path of Dagger by Robert Jordan and wish all of you a wonderful year.

Great-Britain-flagThe only thing missing were the dunes, beside that when you look a those safari totally reinveted in male kurtas, at the subtle touch of modern look infused by designers like Alaxander Plakhov and others, at Donatella Versace blonder than ever in a french foreign legion uniform, you see yourself in the mighty desert. The 2010 Summer Spring collection from Versace amaze, surprise, stir… The colour palette choosed has been inspired by a 1980’s collection of Gianni Versace, but even now it still up to date.

france-flagLes dunes était la seule chose qui manquaient à ce defilé, tous semblait avoir été pensé, travailler pour rappeler le désert: les safari 1980 de Gianni Versace, remodelé en en Kurtah de Luxe, les touches subtiles de modernisme, insuflée par des designs particuliers, la palette de couleur et le Final : Donatella Versace, plus blonde que jamais en tenue de légion étrangère Française. engageant et sexy… C’est ainsi, en beauté, que c’est clos la collection Printemps-été 2010 de Versace. Voici quelques images.

Le jeune héros de Legend of Zelda, plutôt ces créateurs, ne tarissent pas d’imagination pour rallier de plus en plus de fan. Après Phantom Hourglass(Le sablier Fantôme) première opus sur Nintendo DS, dans lequel Link passe le plus clair de son temps à la barre d’un bateau de pirate, les échos de l’empire nippon nous parviennent avec des séduisantes images du prochain opus. Après avoir conquit les mers notre le jeune héros tout de vert vêtu, s’attaque à la terre au commande d’un train, pas encore à grande vitesse… dans cet opus il aura aussi la possibilité de diriger un automate (une sorte d’armure armée jusqu’au dent qui peu marcher dans la lave avec Link sur sa tête) Nintendo nous promet plus d’information plus tard, en attendant voici des images et le lien vers un vidéo reportage de L’E3 2009 où la première démo du jeu à été présentée.

Great-Britain-flag

After being pirate (in Phantom Hourglass) Link, hero of “the Legend of Zelda” series, has to conquer other territories in order to repel the evil from his country. He got à new vehicle, smokier than the first one, a good old train. At the E3 2009, Nintendo presented the first demo game of a second opus of Legend of Zelda on Nintendo DS, the Legend of Zelda: Spirit Track. When it is about teasing people, Nintendo know exactly what to do, à little demo to show particularities, a video with no direct link with the central story of the game and many in game picture. As this is only what we got enjoy those in-game pictures and a link to a video review from Jeuvideo.com.

Un dossier très émouvant, pour ceux qui ont un minimum d’intérêt nostalgique pour les Jeu vidéo, à été développer sur Jeuvideo.com à l’occasion de la fête de la musique. C’est une étude des musiques de jeu vidéos, depuis les blip blip de PacMan et autres jeu d’arcade, jusqu’au somptueuses bandes sonores d’un Final Fantasy. Illustré avec des bandes sonores à vous arracher des larmes(de nostalgie bien sûr) comme les musiques de combat dans street fighter 2(sur Super NES), Mortal Kombat… les interviews avec des compositeurs nous renseigne un peu plus sur leur monde, le processus et les sentiments qu’ils traduisent dans leurs BO. Ludique et informatif à la fois!

Stark
Great-Britain-flagStark, Espada Number One, is finally taking thing seriously, his Resureccion was a great surprise, not that we where doubting of the imagination of the author, but we where expecting something more impressing. The chapter released last week literally shot that objection.

On the other side Konoha is recovering from ashes. With a new Hokage, a new way of handling Missing-Nins. Naruto need more than ever support from people surrounding him. English chapters on Onemanga.com
