Hiruma Yoichi

retouched with Adobe Photoshop
Another artwork by my little brother. At first, I didn't notice that it was his own hand drawing. But after he showed me the original artwork (before the editing process), now I believe that IT IS his own hand drawing. The name of the character is  Yoichi Hiruma.

M-Learning for Students - Is It Possible?

phone browser is very popular today
You might still remember of a TV commercial telling the story of a man going back home on foot because he missed his last bus. In the story, the man looks very calm and not too worries about the bus when he takes out his mobile phone, puts on the headset, plays some songs from the phone, and walks down the street whistling cheerfully. “I love missing the last bus home…,” he said.

Imagine when we have a different situation. A student suddenly, one day, is not able to attend classes for sick or other important reasons. Yet, he is not too restless about the lessons left behind. He just grasps his mobile phone, learning the left lessons through video streaming or video calling, downloading available learning applications in the form of java, flash, or 3GP application, and doing other teaching-learning process via his mobile phone. It probably gives a futuristic impression overmuch, but such things are possible to be done at present time since technologies are more advance currently. Mobile phones in this day and age are equipped with the capability to connect to the internet, to play and record audio, video, and picture or photo, and to run software applications such as Java, Symbian, Flash, and so forth. In addition, the development of 3G technology gives a faster data transfer with better quality and, of course, less expensive tariff. Thus, the above story is not just an overrated thought anymore considering all the advance technology that we have nowadays.

Unforgettable Moments

nothing is better than being on top of the mountain
Then the sun rose slowly from behind the mountain...

It was very beautiful...

The most beautiful sun we had ever seen...

It hailed us with its bright-orange color and rounded shape...

When the first time it came up, we felt a warm breeze pulled gently at our hair and everywhere there was the scent of fart...

I stopped breath and stared at my friend...

He then laughed out loud and ran away from me...

I could not put up with his behavior, so I ran after him and all of a sudden we fell down to a vale, the vale of darkness...

When I did my routine maintenance, I found some interesting pictures from my sister's folder. The pictures were taken near her campus. So, check 'em out!

And I'm Ready to Go to the Office

Recently I'm experimenting on drawing caricatures. It's not easy to draw a caricature anyway. We have to know what is special from someone's face, and that's what I'm trying to learn. Here's one of the caricatures I've made.

experimenting with caricature

For the title, I use those words because it is really my style when going to my office, with formal shirt and vest.

Basic Processor Overclocking Guidelines

This tutorial was initially made by my friend, Caesar. He is quite good at tinkering computer hardware. He learned overclocking by joining various overclocking forums on the internet, reading through PC magazines, and of course, self-experimenting his very own old-but-good-enough PC.

So I thought of sharing this tutorial to all of you guys who are interested in overclocking.

Please note that I will only cover the basic guidelines for Processor overclocking. In case you find some difficult terms, I've already provided a simple glossary at the end of this guideline to help you.

Stupid Doctor

This is actually from my old portfolios...Just enjoy! ;p

Alterations in My Life

This is a special post for the local readers, because I wrote it in Bahasa Indonesia. Actually I wrote this article when I was in college. I didn't know that I could write such article because as some of you may have known that I'm not really into writing. Allrighty then, let's just go to the point. Anyway, I just can say apologize for other readers aside Indonesian.

Basic Stages in the Process of making Comics

One day, a friend of mine asked me about the stages we should do during the comic process. So I gave her the steps:

1. Pencil. hand drawing remains on top of all. Though we can use pen tablet to draw an image, drawing on a computer just cannot beat out the flexibility and details of direct hand drawing on the paper.

2. Ink. Ink is used to make the outline of the pencil sketch so we can see the image clearer and will be easier to be scanned. In the United States comic industries, this inking process are even conducted by particular people which are called the Inker. But with the good quality of the scanner nowadays, many people choose to directly scan their artworks and control the sharpness level of the lines using software editors like Adobe Photoshop or Corel Draw.

Morning Dew

The image was taken in Jogja

As a sheer whisper on the grass she sat down.
In the cold morning sun she starred at me.

Dark and gray had now been gone,
whilst the sun shines with golden beams,

through a drop.
