Help with Video Editing/Making Needed!!

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 4, 2013, 6:35 PM


Hi guys, it's been a while (too long for that matter);;; I'm very sorry.

First of all, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!!! THEY JUST MADE MY DAY SO MUCH MORE SPECIAL ♥ ❤
and I'm sorry that I haven't replied to all of the messages yet ;u; midterms has really been crushing my life. I'm getting to all of them..slowly.

Anyways,
I need to make an eye-catching video that's (preferably simple to do because I really have no time to spend on it, thanks school), and I saw this (www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIvmE4… and it...looks like I might be able to pull it off in a couple of days. Problem is I'm kind of technologically challenged when it comes to videos u__u

The video looks like it might have been done in flash? but I really don't know the first thing about videos except putting recorded clips together and simple editing. So i was wondering if anyone could share with me some good/simple tutorials on making simple videos.

Thanks in advance!!!

EDIT: I was told it's called motion graphics;;; *pointers in that direction would be awesome too*

I---wasn't active during the summer at all u-u just somehow got occupied with work, friends and etc.
Well, next week I'm starting university aaaaaaaand according to ..well..everyone around me it doesn't sound like I'll have too much free time, so can't say much about my activity here.

I did get myself a new laptop, tablet and phone though and am pretty broke so I'll be increasing my activity on tumblr, twitter, and finally got instagram haha. Feel free to follow over there and we can chat too if anyone wants too. I did get lots of photos during summer u-u just gotta sort through first.

Twitter @kuryuki
Instagram @_kuryuki I don't know why kuryuki was taken..I mean...it's not the most..logical name.
Tumblr kuryuki.tumblr.com

I'll still be creeping around deviantart obviously, but my posting rate will slow down for sure. This is also because I feel like deviantart is a place for finished personal works, so I don't post any of my wips/doodles/commissions here usually.

Help needed ! inbox thumbnails not showing up

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 27, 2013, 9:44 PM


*recycles old journal*

Since yesterday I noticed that none of the thumbnail preview images are showing up in my inbox for new deviations ;A;

it just shows as a broken image on firefox.

the deviations from before yesterday shows up just fine, but any that were sent to my inbox after that shows as broken thumbs.

does anyone know how to fix this?


Thanks for the fast replies guys!! Seems like it would be dA's fault u-u thankfully;;;; it had me worried for a bit there. Hope they can fix this soon C:

Inspirational Quotes? or just funny ones :'D

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 3, 2013, 4:54 PM


(゚Д゚≡゚Д゚) Time sure passes fast, I just realized my grad photos are less than a week away...and I need to complete my grad sayings sheet! (this is basically a quote that goes under my photo in the year book) I love reading quotes but I don't remember any :'D and I don't want anything too cliche either u-u

under time stress, all I could think of is....: it's never too late to start trying OTL//// but it does apply to my experiences these few years.

So here I am wondering if anyone has some witty sayings I could reference from ◜◒◝  and just mix and match a bunch of stuff. I keep remember that one quote I saw on fb about how: I shall succeed and others shall fail or something like that

I really want to get through the feeling that I learned a lot by participating in school/community events/activities instead of just keeping to myself for the last few years....even though it kept me pretty busy around certain time of the year but it was very rewarding/

u///u but idk how to work that to make it less lame...or shorter for that matter - there's a word limit..I just don't remember how long.

----------------------------------
On the other hand I was looking at my tumblr posts (procrastination at it's best...scrolling through one's own tumblr) and I found a really good colour scheme for journal haha.

I'll get around to inputting those colours...soon...some day.
-is procrastinating on an act of procrastination ಥ⌣ಥ

I love the blinding green, but it's just too blinding !! and not colourful enough overall >: gosh I wish I still know how to code.

----------------------------------
Also, I'd really appreciate it if you could vote for me for a t-shirt design contest by liking this image: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi…

OTL at first I felt really bad asking people....but my competitive side's getting the better of me ;u;

Mini Hiatus until June 25th

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 19, 2013, 3:59 PM


I know I'm hardly active but..


I'm going to make it a goal to stay away from social media as much as possible until the 25th so I can actually study for my diplomas (they're kind of like SATs? It's worth 50% of my grade q-q). Not to mention that I either work or have a diploma every other day until the 25th anyways so I hardly have time to study as it is.

 So I'm sorry if I don't reply to your messages until then ;w; and I can't wait till summer break so I can finally draw Rivaille a lot again.


I need some expertise on laptops please !!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 3, 2013, 7:49 PM


I've been using a desktop + re-configured netbook on the go for quite a few years now and I think it's time for a real laptop where I will be taking out as well as use at home for my school, gaming as well as drawing needs u_u

but I know nothing about these things owo.b so I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of laptops with what specs would support mostly digital art programs and games (: I'm thinking of a 15inch one and if possible I want it to look pretty/neat.

I was looking at Vaio S15 since my friend got one, but then I got a lot of comments on how unreliable sony is >.> so I'm not sure anymore D: but the s series definitely fits my idea of looking good.

oh and HP is definitely off the list, we had some hp computers in the family and they die out wayyyy to fast not to mention the super slow speed I've seen from them ):

FAQ + Ask me anything~

Hover a question to see the answer

Skin by pjuk


Post your questions away and I'll answer them as long as it's not too private :'D It doesn't have to be dA related~

Will be updating this from time to time~

*I do not know what to name the categories, but I want to use headers*

Bio



What's your [insert language] name?
Shoot me a message and I'll tell you whatever I'm comfortable telling ^^

Online you can call me Kuu or come up with something yourself (:


When's your birthday?
October 19th, 1995~ I'm a Libra in Western Zodiac and a Piggie in Chinese Zodiac.


Where are you from?
I'm Chinese, currently living in Canada


What languages do you speak?
I can speak English and Chinese fairly fluently. I speak choppy Japanese too haha.

Feel free to chat with me in any of those languages if it makes it easier for you ^^


About Me



Do you have Skype? If so, possible to chat?
Yes I do have Skype, feel free to chat anytime ;^; I'm online 24/7 anyways orz. Comment/note me anywhere and we can exchange Skype handles C:
*or if you're a good stalker you can probably guess my handle u-u*


Can we be friends?
Honestly I'd love to make friends on dA because I don't know how to initiate that myself. But please don't ask this question because it's awkward ;w;

I think friends are something that are made through interactions like chatting and such, not by asking.


Are you an animal lover?
I'm quite biased with animals >A< I like small, fluffy, chubby animals, but I'm not too sure about the larger ones. I like how cute animals are, but I can't deal with any mess related to them. Not to mention that picture and the real thing is different once again, I love looking at pictures, but I get scared when the real thing is in front of me :'D


What course are you taking in college or future want?
I will be taking General Engineering starting September, I haven't thought about which direction to go after that yet (thankfully I don't have to pick until second year). Will likely go for the co-op program so I can get some experience and money while in school, then I might go for a Masters in Business Administration afterwards if I feel up to the extra years.


Do you have a Facebook page?
I have an account for personal use, but no pages. I don't think it's necessary with all the other accounts I have over twitter and tumblr and such ^^

Sorry I'll only be giving my facebook out to those I've chatted with;;


Do you like icecream? If so, what flavour?
Oh yess *w* ice cream~~ I like green tea and mango the most, maple walnut's pretty good too, there isn't really a particular flavour that I don't like. Though when I buy ice cream I tend to stay away from traditional flavours like vanilla and chocolate.


Art Related



What program do you use?
Paint Tool Sai for pretty much everything, then some adjustments in Photoshop afterwards. Sometimes I use Clip Studio.


What tablet do you use?
The oldest, simplest Wacom Bamboo Fun lol. You can't even search the model I have up anymore u-u it's been 4-5 years.

I'm thinking of getting a Huion K28 soon after I saw a post from tumblr;;;


Do you take requests?
No, sorry. Occasionally I have Kiribans, stay-tuned for journals and announcements of those I guess?

I hardly have enough time as it is to draw as frequently as I want so requests would just be something that drains my time from me Q-Q

Icon commissions are currently open at: fav.me/d652ahl 
Regular commissions will probably not open until I can draw faster, since I don't want to get paid under minimum wage, but it takes me days to finish a piece.


Do you take commissions?
Icon commissions are currently open at: fav.me/d652ahl 
Regular commissions will probably not open until I can draw faster. However if you're really interested you are free to send me a note and maybe we can work something out.


What were some of the first few things that inspired you to draw?
I'm not really sure actually, when I was little I thought drawing was what every kid did. Then I started watching anime and started with copying official art. Nowadays though I get inspired from other godly artists and beautiful images/photos I see on tumblr ;w;


Do you think you'll ever stop drawing art as you get older?
I can still see myself drawing at least throughout university so at least for another 4-5 years, but I'm honestly now sure how long I'll keep drawing. I'd be nice if I can continue it as a hobby till when I'm really old. But right now I am drawing anime as you can see, and I really don't know how long my love for it will last. I guess I'll always keep drawing, I may just find another topic/subject/genre to draw as my age changes.


Have you ever had an artist's block?
Only all the time ;w; I'm the kind that feel 2000% inspired when I'm so busy that I don't have time to draw or when I'm on my bed trying to sleep. Once I sit down and try to draw...all the inspiration goes away and I can't even draw a potato.

I really envy the people who can just sit down and draw.


At what age did your drawing skills improve the most?
I think drawing skills do have something to do with how often you draw, and I honestly haven't drawn much in the last...3 years or so :D the biggest obvious improvement is actually in 2009 (when I'm 13-14?) it's about when I just started digital art O: and you can really see the improvement from -can't do digital at all- to -it's lookable now-


Can I draw your OCs?
>A< I'd be delighted if you do~ do show me it after you finish C:


Would you like to participate in my contest/project/artbook/collab?
Send me a note and I'll likely say yes if I'm not too busy ^^;;

I'm not too fond of contests though, so I won't join unless the prizes are good and/or my chances are high.


Miscellaneous



[Insert question about me having awesome art skills here]
a;dlsfkdsj thank you for thinking so //// I am not worthy QAQ
I think practicing really helps...since I can notice my own improvement sometimes when I just keep on drawing continuously for a period of time (usually during some break) and then I see myself getting rusty as I start to get busy and not have time to draw.


Did you get an influx of people add you on Line Play?
I can't tell if the influx was from dA or not, but at one point I did.


How come you're a bad ass?
Because it's the internet, and no one will ever know how awkward I really am :'D


Sup with life?
Procrastination all day every day, it's gotten out of hand. Give me a week of break, and I really do sit there and do nothing instead of catching up on school work.


Have you tried DeviantHeart yet?
Oh yes (΄◉◞౪◟◉‵), saw a tweet about it last night right after it came out so I went and got my match, but I did think it'd be too creepy if I sent them the note so I kept it a secret. It'd be lovely if whoever got me would have the courage to send the note though *wonders how the note looks like*


What is your quest?
WORLD DOMINATION~! ONE DAY ONE DAY IT WILL ALL BE MINE!
