Edit: Seems like my journal is faulty.
Continuously EditedI wasn't aware of it before now, but the people behind the UA project (Unknown Artists Project) gave me a feature in their RAPP section the 23rd this month.
I appreciate it, and you people do a great job with the project, thanks anjules:
RAPP - Photography Feature here: http://www.gp-digital.de/ua/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=47&Itemid=63
Edit: I'm changing the pictures and the text in this journal frequently, I hope it doesn't confuse anyone...
Thank YouA big thank you to all the amazing people I met at the hospital. To all the doctors and nurses, EVERYONE: I'm forever grateful for everything you've done for me. When you're in a place that most people fear and you feel vulnerable, it's something special when someone you don't know actually cares about you and your well-being. It's amazing that these people are able to make me smile and feel safe about the situation even while they're perforating me with needles and scalpels. Again: THANK YOU! I hope I can do something for you in return some day.
Also a big hello and good luck to all the patients I've meet these days and in the past.
And also big thanks to all the people on dA and elsewhere that cares about my devations and my presence here. I'm sorry for not always having the time to reply each and every one of you, but you can be sure that I appreciate you.
Weather and TutorialsHola, Hi, Hei etc. etc.!
As you've probably noticed; I haven't exactly submitted that many photos lately. The reason for the lack of pictures is simply because the weather around here has been absolutely horrible the last couple of months, seriously. I've even considered to go buy myself a underwater house for my camera to be able to shoot landscapes in the rain Anyway, during one of the first nice hours of decent weather I was on my way to the dentist, and on my way driving there I saw this nice view, I stopped the car and tried to capture the moment ( http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/14290069/ ) , you've probably already seen it. My first decent landscape in over a month..., but it was worth the wait. I hope the spring brings more opportunities for good shots than what the winter so far has brought me.
In other news, *photo-class made use of one of my pictures, The Naked Now<
Well, what can I say, life's complicated and 60+ hour weeks doesn't exactly help. But whining doesn't help either, so enough about that
Winter is surely homing in...I can smell it in the air. But I'm actually kind of looking forward to the winter so that I may try to add to my gallery some of the norwegian winter atmosphere that I like so much. Though in this area the weather usually is relatively warm due to the gulf-stream heating the coast all year long. But hopefully the weather will make me "lucky". We'll see what happens.
Oh, and BTW, I finally bought a new car. No big deal though. It's nothing too fancy, but I like the car, it's comfortable and it brings me safely to and from work every day. Here it is outside the house (Click to zoom):
Anyway, I'll take a look at you peoples new deviations soon, I can't wait to see what you've come up with lately.
See you laterz
Journal v.2.0: Flip FloppingHey
Wow, I shot my first picture in almost 3 weeks last night. Man, how I have missed it... But that's life; To long for the things you want to do. And I guess that if I always got to do what I wanted I wouldn't appreciate it as much. ...But damn, 3 weeks is still too long!
Anyway, same story; too much work and too much rain. I've had a bad conscience for not having the time to be at dA to full duplex you people. But I honestly haven't had the choice.
So long and thanks for all the fish
Journal v.1.9: Back.
Man, my journal was getting old... So just a simple edit for now. As normal the stress levels are WAY high these days... I have no room for shooting pictures this week or next week. Too much work, too much...crap... Too much rain, no new car - Yet. But it's in-progress. Well, gotto go. Laters people.
Journal v.1.88: Crash and Burn.
I've just spent about 10 hours restoring my computer... The OS crashed, and no matter what I tried I didn't get it up and running again. So I had to reinstall EVERYTHING. And what a nightmare that was...
I have 4 harddisks and 8 partitions, totaling 600GB of hard drive space. I try to store my things off the boot disk, but still it's quite some heavy work to extract vital settings and files, and then putting everything together again. ...And now I'm quite exhausted alright.
Well, I'll be back to shooting pictures and spending more time on dA again something next week. I'll just continue my "vacation" a few more days until then.
See you later people!

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

30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) ChallengeI originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, and since it seems to be popular I thought I'd challenge people here.

Tag your posts with #Improvement Hell (more for Tumblr posts, but I suppose you can do it here too) so everyone can follow along and see each other's awesome artwork.

Pony Price ListGeneral Commission Info Hat Pricing FAQ
All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind. I start from my base pony price and add charges according to how difficult the character is to make. Design elements that add complexity such as difficult or multicolored manes, body markings, and modifications to the basic pattern will add cost. For a full and amus
