huge bummer

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 18, 2013, 10:32 AM



Ah, after I got so hyped up about it, turns out I'm not going to Ohayocon. v_v

Chihaya's mom was going to take us, but apparently this week someone close to the family died so they have to deal with funeral stuff this weekend.

Big shame it all happened, and I hope Chihaya's family is okay!

Maybe we can go to Sugoicon this year or something. ; w ;
(That's in October-ish down in Cincinnati)

ah well

now

what do i do with this $190...

IMMA SAVE IT FOR A 3DS + POKEMON 6TH GEN GAME
I HOPE THEY MAKE A COOL PACKAGE FOR IT
LIKE YOU GET THE SYSTEM AND A GAME TOGETHER FOR A CHEAPER PRICE THAN SEPERATE, THAT'D BE NICE.

ah i'm sorry v_v

This journal is to move down the other one.

I'm still very angry, and may have to resort to installing it in which case I'll have to give Chihaya $45 back which means I can't do anything at Ohayocon. Or maybe my dad will cave tonight.

maybe i'll make it a birthday gift for chihaya, i don't know...

I'll work something out.

I'm super sorry for unloading on all of you. I like to be very cheerful online, and even in real life it's a huge, immense disgrace for me to be crying and such, especially over something so stupid. And I'm a very fortunate person, so I shouldn't complain.
slight irony - i'm very pessimistic irl but it does really hurt to see my negative views be proven true

Thanks for not getting angry at me.
*bows*

ARGGGG (angry/miserable rant)

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 16, 2013, 12:37 PM



(For backstory if you have no clue what's going on: pandalolii.deviantart.com/jour…)

Sorry for all the journals today.

But I'm SUPER pissed.

Miki arrived in the mail today for Chihaya and myself. I thought they'd see that the plastic is still on, it arrived, Fawkesy (who made the huge purchase, thanks so much for your kindness ; A ; ) DIDN'T steal my money because I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GIVE IT TO HER YET BECAUSE MY PARENTS ARE PARANOID THAT EVERYONE ON THE INTERNET IS EVIL, and then they'd finally let me pay her.

NOPE.

APPARENTLY THEY BELIEVE THE AVERAGE PERSON HAS ACCESS TO HEAT-SEALING FACTORY GRADE PLASTIC SEALERS.
RIGHT.

SO THEY'RE SAYING "INSTALL IT AND WE'LL BELIEVE YOU".

I WANTED CHIHAYA TO INSTALL IF FIRST IN CASE THE CODE DIDN'T WORK AGAIN SO WE CAN EMAIL THE COMPANY IN THAT CASE SO SHE HAS A VOCALOID TOO AND SHE LIKES MIKI MORE AND WE'RE DOING THIS EQUALLY. I ALREADY HAVE TONIO AND I'M TRYING TO BE A GOOD FRIEND.

WE CAN'T DO THAT UNTIL THIS WEEKEND. AND THEN I CAN'T INSTALL IT UNTIL MONDAY.

FAWKESY NEEDS THE DAMN MONEY

LET
ME
SEND
IT

IT'S MY MONEY
YOU'RE LOSING NOTHING

KFJSKJFKLAJFKLDJSLKF

I'M SO PISSED
SHE'S MY FRIEND
NOT AN EVIL THIEF PEDO SCUMBAG
YOU IDIOTS

I REALLY REALLY HATE TO CURSE BUT

YOU GUYS (MY PARENTS) ARE FUCKING IDIOTS

*crying a bit with how frustrating this is*
i've argued with them about this for weeks
and jfksjlsjlkf


i'm so sorry fawkesy
I'M the internet scumbag stealing your money
making you buy products and not getting you the money for forever
i feel so horrible right now
crying
i really hope chihaya sent you her $45

i really really really hope i can convince my dad
i hate crying in front my parents but maybe i'll do it - no bad idea they'll think i'm overobsessive and a weak idiot falling for internet scams GOD I HATE HOW CLOSE-MINDED THEY ARE sfjslkj

i'm sorry for this emotional vent
i'm just so angry right now that i can't be a nice person to people who do nice things for me
not everyone in the world is evil dammit

Am I incabable of voice acting when it comes to soft voices or something?

For giggles I tried recording some soft Leil (wasting time wooo!).

of course is sounds EXACTLY LIKE ME instead of THE UTAU

And for the record none of my UTAUs sound like me.

THIS KEEPS HAPPENING WHEN I DO SOFT FFFFF

need to listen to more soft banks for ideas i guess ugh

Regarding the next UST tutorial

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 15, 2013, 6:54 PM



It'll probably be sometime next week.

My problem was that I had no clean way to record system audio, and doing it through my Yeti, although it is a very good mic, does NOT sound good.

It turns out my sound card is a bit cruddy and can't. And if even if it could I'd have to update drivers which would mean getting my parents involved and fjlksdajflkj.

So I'll have to do it at Cola's house maybe. Maaaybe. Very maybe. If I put the demo of Camtasia on her computer? (Would you be okay with that Cola? D: ) I'd hope she wouldn't mind me USTing for ten minutes, she can help. XD Maybe we'll record the tutorial alongside one another? we'll see

But until I get a computer that CAN do stereo mix (system audio) or go to Cola's, the next part is a no-go.

and i'm busy this weekend
very busy

TODAY I WAS LOOKING AROUND AT SONGS I THOUGHT WERE BEAUTIFUL TO SEE IF THEY HAD OFF VOCALS.

NOPE.
FOILED EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
AND SOME SONGS EVEN TAUNTED ME THAT A NICO SINGER HAD SUNG IT YET THERE WAS NO OFF VOCAL.
IMMA SHOOT IT.

DEAR PRUDENCE
KYRIE ELEISON
JUSTIFY
MESSIAH
KIMINI, WATASHINI
AND MORE THAT I'VE FORGOTTEN

NOOOOO OFF VOCAL.
NONE.

Ohayocon?

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 13, 2013, 6:54 PM



I doubt anyone else is really going, I know only two other UTAU people from Ohio, but this is one of the biggest winter conventions in America so I thought I'd ask and see. XD

Chihaya (yuekana), myself, and an IRL friend of her's are going there from Saturday to Sunday this weekend! More were supposed to go but they didn't get themselves together in time.

I'd be super happy to meet other UTAU people there! If anyone is I'll probably coordinate a spot and wear certain clothing? I'll make you a drawing on the spot or something! I'll force Chihaya to do it too. eue

It's my first con so I'm super excited.

you know, you spend and hour mixing a very very very hard mix

Series of UST Tutorials

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 5, 2013, 4:03 PM



Hey dA! I've started a series of UST Tutorials. The first video is up, Part One - The Basics. I'm hoping that through these videos that everyone, whether new or experienced, can better learn how to edit and even make their own USTs.

Here's the first part: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsQbbH…

Hope this helps! Might post this journal in a Tutorial section if any of the UTAU groups have them.

Commissions Journal (PayPal and Points!)

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 4, 2013, 3:56 PM



:star:☆ I do TRADITIONAL chibis and headshots.☆:star:
I use Faber Castel pens to ink and Prismacolor markers to color, then I edit a bit on the computer to fix any mistakes and to bolster the color killed by my scanner. Examples of what these chibis and headshots will look like:

Casual UTAUs (New line of commishes) by shinamiEBA

UTAU Chibis -Set 11- by shinamiEBA Pokemon OC Chibis by shinamiEBA

Soledi Headshot .:Commish:. by shinamiEBA Bari Headshot .:Commish:. by shinamiEBA

☆What I WON'T do☆
I will not draw:
Nudity - please submit characters that have their private sections covered
Animals - I cannot draw animals well; If you really want one I could do a gijinka (completely human version)
Furries - Again, I cannot draw animals well, not even in a human build
Mecha - I can't draw robots or complicated machine suits either
I am willing to draw purposely old or fat characters, but they likely will look younger/thinner since I am unskilled in drawing outside of my general bishoujo/bishounen range. Sorry.

☆What I WILL do☆
Pretty much everything not stated as something I won't draw.
I am willing to draw actual characters of a series, OCs, anything. I don't mind as long as you pay.
Ichigo from Bleach, your Harry Potter OC, a character of your own series, it doesn't matter. Everything is fair game!

:star:☆COST and WAITING☆:star:
Pen Chibis cost 80 :points: or $1, Colored Chibis cost $4 each, and Headshots are $7 each. PayPal is how you'll pay me with money. I'm from USA, so it's USD.

Money/points will need to be paid via PayPal/Donation beforehand. I promise I'll get the commission done no matter what. Before applying for a commission, make sure there's a slot available, then note with the character you would like me to draw. PLEASE NOTE that each character is a slot, not each person paying for a chibi. If you want multiple, you take up multiple slots.

How long will it take? I do these during school, so generally one day for the pen chibis, 3-4 for the colored chibis, and a week or slightly more for the headshots.

Does it cost extra for multiple characters/extra items/etc? Each character counts as one slot and you must pay for each character. I am willing to draw small "sidekick" characters (For example, Pikachu with Ash, Luna with Usagi, Kyubey with Madoka, etc) for free next to the main character. If it's something else, just ask.

:star: Slots :star:

Penned Chibis - $1 each OR 80 :points: each
There are a total of six slots. If six aren't here yet, slots are open!

1) :iconcvirusp: - K0KI Nayu cvirusp.deviantart.com/art/UTA…
2) :iconzrshin: - Senne Ruri i025.radikal.ru/1104/7c/7d5fa5…
3)
4)

6)


Colored Chibis - $4 each
There are a total of four slots. If six aren't here yet, slots are open!

1)
2)

4)


Headshots - $7 each
There are a total of three slots. If three aren't here yet, slots are open!

Cover art? I can pay!

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 31, 2012, 12:15 PM



So, I'm working on a cover of the song "Lion" from the anime Macross Frontier with the UTAUs Leil and Tsukishiro Hakupo. You can hear a portion of it here (soundcloud.com/shinami/wip-cov…), but since I posted that pitchbending is nearly complete. It's a pretty good cover I feel.

Unfortunately, I really don't have time for art, not that I'm very good at cover art anyways. Is anyone up to drawing this or know anyone who could do this at a reasonable price for commission? I have 471 points and with PayPal money somewhere between $15-20, so I'd prefer to stay on the cheap side.

I've looked at people, but most either draw super-kawaii-uguu style which isn't what I'm looking for, are very expensive for what I'd be asking (Two half-bodies preferably with a spacey background or something, I'd provide references and ideas from the anime for poses and backgrounds), or aren't open for commissions (SALT *stares*).

So even if you're closed/don't normally commission, I'm willing to negotiate a price if I can afford it and it's reasonable. ;;

or you could do it out of the goodness of your heart in love for me ; w ;

I attacked you all with art today, but there's still more to come! ...Tomorrow. Got a lot to scan and edit, ugh. And I need to reorganize my folders so all my art class stuff has it's own area.
I'll reply to comments tomorrow after uploading.

When I get my game tomorrow I'll try not to abandon ya'll like I did when Skyrim came. ;; (I only got to level 7 in that anyways, because I installed it in the wrong place it started acting bad and to play it again I'd have to uninstall reinstall but I have all these mods and fsalkfalkfh.)

AND FOLKS I didn't see many dA peeps touch this. There's only six days until this contest I made ends, check it out?

Hey guys, you know how when you play a UST it creates a .cache folder? Well, I've had UTAU on this computer for 2 years now, and decided today to clean out all those caches. I thought maybe it'd be 1 GB or something, I don't download hordes of USTs but I have a good amount.

Nope. 9 GB. NINE. It took two hours to send them to the recycle bin then proceed to deleting them all. sob

So people, think about cleaning them out sometime. DX


ON A HAPPY NOTE I FINISHED NEVER TONIGHT WOOOOO
Final rendering and posting will be tomorrow. YAY.
I hope to get in the Top 5 of U-U rankings this month kekekekeke eue
