Myst UrU Live is back online

News
Welcome to the underground city of D'ni, where once the great masters of the Guild of Writers wrote books with which you could travel to other worlds...



The Uru server is back up and people are streaming into the underground city of D'ni from all over the world.
And you know what the best part about this whole thing is?

You can download and play the game for absolutely free!

The run their server based on donations alone.
So if you like the game and wish for the server to stay online as it is now, then please show your love and donate. After all, Cyan is putting a lot of work into keeping this online - and they are doing this without being paid for the work they do!



For those who don't know what Uru is, I recommend you to go here for the official site:



Or go to the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uru:_Age… (Wikipedia article).

Or read below...



What is Uru (from my perspective)?

Uru is part of the Myst franchise and should appeal to everyone who has played Myst. It's not your standard online game in the sense that you go and kill as many foes as possible or that it forces you to level up constantly in order to keep pace with other players. Rather more it offers the player a set of stunningly detailed and fantastic worlds with a great deal of non-trivial history behind it. The main focus of the game is puzzles rather than button mashing and leveling. It takes brains rather more than brawn to play through Uru - and as this is a MMOG a lot of these puzzles also depend on and/or are made easier through cooperation with other players.

Uru is a casual game. It offers a break after a hard day of work without being intrusive or addictive (unless you let it be) and you can stop at any point of the game. As one of the main characters, Yeesha, emphasizes: the journey is the goal here, rather than completion.

Also the community of Uru is quite unique. Everybody is welcoming and helpful and the people are an intelligent and benevolent crowd.

All in all, in spite of its age (it came out in 2003) the atmosphere of the whole game is just breathtaking and its certainly worth looking into.


Media

Here are some screenshots - but they hardly do the experience of the game justice:



And here is the trailer, it will give you a better picture of the gameplay:




And finally

Of course I will be online in this game as often as time permits.
My name there is sythiar, just as it is here. If you want to contact me there or chat with me within Uru or if you request help with the game, write me a note with your KI Number and I will give you mine or contact you from within the game.



A new homepage!

I've been working on this for some time now, but at last it's finished: my new art homepage. It's nothing flashy or fancy and it doesn't contain Java or Flash unless I thought it would help the layout and overview of the page - yes, I prefer to solve things with PHP rather than Flash and Java. And in that respect I learned a lot.

So without further ado, here is the link to it: artwork.evajutzeler.com

Please feel free to link to it if you want to. You can find banners here: artwork.evajutzeler.com/index.…

And a DD of all things...!

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 28, 2009, 9:08 AM

I wanted to post this a few days ago, but it somehow didn't work. This is what I would have posted anyhow:

Ok, this is crazy!
I just had about one of the craziest evenings in a longer time. I reinstalled XP on my computer two days ago, since I wanted to repartition my hard drive - just to find out that something has gone terribly wrong. All day today I got blue screens of death at a rather random basis and pretty much every single program that I started up crashed and then is, let's say, very reluctant to start up again, if it starts up again at all. It even corrupted one of the paintings I was currently working on, destroying an evening’s worth of work (lucky I still have my safety copy on an external hard drive, but it is still frightening!)
I didn't know what’s going on (and I still don't), and since I really like my PC I am sick with worry now. Something like this has never happened to me before!

To relieve my frustration I turned on my small EEE-PC (which is only used in emergency cases) and browsed deviatart, when I noticed that my header read a 300 odd messages. My first thought was that deviantART had some sort of spamming or another similar problem, but when I read the comments and favs it started to dawn on me that I had a DD. It was like being thrown from a cold pool into a frying pan. One second I was oh so worried about the health of my computer, my data and my digital artwork and the next I was exhilarated and deeply moved by all the praise I got (though if I deserve it, only heaven knows...).

I was still all muddled when some friends came over later that evening to solve mathematical problems for a uni lecture together with my boyfriend.
And I'm still not over it.

I have a DD and my computer is sick.
I feel like a wanna cry and laugh manically at the same time.

As for the DD I just don't know what to say, except: thank you everyone for your kind words! I'm so happy and moved. And I will try to get back to everyone who commented, but I hope you understand that this takes time. So if you haven't heard from me, I will get back to you eventually!

A thank you for FrozenTempest for suggesting it!
And a thank you to Katmomma for choosing it!

I can't get back to all the people who added my pictures to their favs, however. There are just so many!! So to those people I just want to say: I'm really grateful that you like my art!
And once again: Thank you!


UPDATE: My computer just died. Thankfully I made a backup and it's still under that warranty of mine. But it's nonetheless annoying. At least I can use my boyfriend's PC to paint.

Hello, Beijing!

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 9, 2009, 1:40 AM
  • Listening to: whatever I can find on my small laptop
  • Reading: many Chinese signs
  • Playing: The Longest Journey
  • Drinking: water, and lots of it!

News
After over a year of silence I finally have some news I consider worthy of posting.

I am currently in Beijing!
And the reason for my being here is both for work and for fun. First I'm going to attend a conference and then I'll be travelling around with my boyfriend.

After a reasonably tiring flight (as tiring as these things get anyway), I am now writing this message from a hotel room twice the size of my bedroom. It's amazing. I'm both exhilarated and ready to fall on my bed and sleep through until tomorrow morning, and, believe me, that is a strange mix of emotions and states. But, I'm also terribly thirsty right now and need to organize some food and water, and I need to prepare a workshop we will hold on Saturday through the entire day. So I can't go to bed just yet.

I'm currently at a convention centre, which has just about everything one can think of, including hot springs and spa (but also a lot of construction work going on), so I'm itching to take in all the sights and sounds, no matter how ugly or how beautiful. China is rather overwhelming already and I still have this lingering feeling of surreality I need to shake off. But I'm adjusting a bit already. Especially to the weather (which is hot and humid - just what I love it).
After the conference I'm attending, I'm going to travel around for another three weeks. I'm possibly going to write a blog about all this with tons of photos for you to look at after I've returned.

Right now, I gotta run!

Love is in the Air...

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 18, 2008, 3:42 AM
  • Listening to: LastFM
  • Reading: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
  • Watching: various DVDs
  • Playing: Prince of Persia

News
So yeah, it's time to update my journal here again with some news.

The single greatest new thing is actually that... *drumroll* ...I am single no more!

We came together about a month ago. It was a very slow and interesting process in the course of which we came from a friendship with some sexual attraction to true love and affection. And this process continues as I still feel that every day I love him more than the next (Sounds like a love song, I know, but it's true!). Needless to say that he's a nerd too, so already from this point of view we fit together pretty well. I think what I love most about him is that he's polite, wonderfully kind-hearted and understanding and, well, that we love each other to bits!! Also, unlike with my previous relationship I have no problem with telling him immediately if something is wrong.

The relationship I have with him is just about the opposite from what I had previously in other aspects too. While my previous relationship was a long distance one, in my current one I spent practically every day with him since the beginning. You could say that we practically moved together (even though to officially move together we would have to choose a different flat, since his flat contract states that only one person is allowed to live there) and that happened only after the first day we came together! It's mad, I tell you!

Currently he has to do military service though, so I spend more time in my old flat. He's away for around three weeks (Argh... noooo!!!) – and I hate the military for this already. Apart from that, the Swiss military is pretty useless anyway (Seriously – if you have to take 60 episodes of Bleach, the entire first season of Heroes and 3 books with you to keep yourself entertained while doing your military service, it's just wrong!).

So why am I writing this here? Since my relationship will be an integral part of my life, it will also have some effect on my art, as everything that affects me directly has (even though the greatest effect will be the one that I will not be able to draw anything, since I will spend most of my free time with him).


On other news:
We have a huge three week party here in Switzerland because of the Euro08 (the European Football, or for you Americans: Soccer, Championship). Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't – and I think of all the people that have come here from all across Europe I like the Dutch most! They just know how to party!
And then I had two job interviews that look promising. I'll tell you more about that when I know more.

I think that's about everything. Thanks for reading.

Cat Duties

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 13, 2008, 12:11 PM
  • Listening to: His Dark Materials Audiobooks
  • Reading: The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud
  • Watching: Lost
  • Playing: Silent Hill 2

The Journal
I will have to use this journal to inform you that I will not have as much time to respond to comments as I used to have (not that I did respond to comments that much before this announcement - but still, I just wanted to make it clear). But don't worry - responses and comments will come eventually. Just be patient with me.

There are two reasons for this:
For one thing I've started a practical at the KORA, an organisation that is loosely coupled with the university of Berne and also has ties to the IUCN (the boss there is head of the SSC Cat Specialist Group). I work on a small project called "Cats in China" and generally it's about getting to know the nature of the populations of the 13 known wild cat species of China and to create a solid baseline in order to take measures in favour of their conservation (and against hunt, poaching and habitat degradation, hopefully). It means a lot of data base research at the moment, but I hope it will be a bit more interesting in the future. I'll keep you posted anyway.

The other thing is: My dad and his girlfriend went on vacation and since they really helped me with my exam back then I still owed them a major favour. They have two young cats and I agreed that I would take care of them (alternating with my sister) - that means that I will sometimes live at their place and sometimes at my own. They don't live too far away from Bern, so my work path won't be much longer, but once I'm there I don't know how good the internet access will be. I will have my laptop with me, of course, but still - who knows how much I will be online.

We'll see. :)

New Commission Guidelines

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 7, 2008, 5:03 AM
  • Listening to: Last FM
  • Reading: The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud

  • Playing: Silent Hill 2

The Journal
I just wanted to inform you all that I decided to change the way I handle commissions. That also means that I've changed the Commissions Information Sheet (so please take a look at it, if you wish to commission me :)).

The main thing that will change is the pricing for each picture: I decided to set each price as a result of a discussion between the commissioner and me by a deviant note or mail exchange. Once the price is agreed upon, I will start with the commission. Like this I would like to make commissions affordable for people who don't have that much money.
Again, I'd like to emphasise that in spite of what you see in my gallery, there are a lot more possibilities - like photo manipulations, 3D modelling, vector art designs etc.

However, I have to say that there are still only 3 commission slots at the same time. And when these are complete, I will not answer to anyone else or will tell people to wait (I know that it's very unlikely that these three slots will be filled, but that's how it is anyway).

So there we are.

You did NOT FAIL! Not this time! :)

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 7, 2007, 1:08 PM
  • Listening to: New Age on LastFM
  • Reading: Eine Billion Dollar by Andreas Eschbach
  • Playing: Shenmue (the one and only!!)
  • Eating: Chocolate! (I needed that!)
  • Drinking: Bloody Mary :)

The Journal
So, after my horrible failure in mid-June, I had another take on the whole exam-matter and this time I was successful. It wasn't a high-and-mighty-stars-and-fancy-rainbows success - but it was a success nonetheless. And that's the main thing.

At the moment I'm still too bedazzled by the sudden surging feeling of freedom that a burden of such immense weight leaves behind when it falls from your shoulders (or as we Swiss say - the stone that fell from my heart) to only start thinking about what to do now.
Probably the first thing on the list will be to worry about getting social security, as I don't have a job at the moment. Also with a mark like this in my records, probably not all the job possibilities are open either. But I believe I will try and apply for anything anyway, since I don't want to be sorry afterwards if a golden opportunity has slipped my grasp.
So yeah. I'm glad. And I'm happy. But at the moment probably too tired to express it in appropriate words.

And: you can bet you kneecaps, I will have more time for drawing now. I no longer have the excuse of being under stress. At least not for the moment.
I still take commissions as well, btw. :)

A small insignificant Announcement

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 18, 2007, 12:13 PM
  • Listening to: various Remixes again
  • Reading: La vieja sirena by José Luis Sampedro
  • Playing: Sonic Rush
  • Eating: Salad! It's good!

The Journal
I think I have to make a short announcement for those of you who read my journal.

I will no longer thank people for favourites in the future. I don't want to appear ungratefully to you at all - but it just takes too long to thank you all personally and there are so many messages I'd have to reply to only after a week. It just takes too much of my time. I just want you to know that I'm happy and honoured anyway that you people fav my stuff and I want to express that in the journal entry today.
And: I will of course still reply to the comments you give me! I couldn't do without that!
And: In turn I will try to comment on deviations a bit more often again - which is in my opinion much more important anyway!

*bows* Thanks for being such a great community, you all!
And I hope you understand my decision.

Back from the Holidays

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 20, 2007, 5:58 AM
  • Listening to: the Harry Potter Audio Books
  • Reading: Nausicaä from the Valley of the Winds
  • Watching: Harry Potter Movies
  • Playing: Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney

The Journal
So I was on holiday in the Netherlands.

I would like to show you some photographs, but I doubt that my facebook account would  let you see them - I haven't figured out how it works to show them to everyone yet.
It was fun though, and I think the Netherlands is one of the nicer countries I've been to. Everything is full of wind and water and the sea is very close, so close you can sometimes smell it in the air. So I enjoyed myself.

I've been a bit busy to catch up with replying to all the comments, but I finally made it. I hope I'll be able to do so in the future as well. I do have to say though, it's getting harder and harder, since my inbox regularily holds around 150 to 200 messages a week... but I'll do what I can to remain as personal as possible.

One the darker side: I finally started to seriously learning for my exam again. I'm still not too optimistic to make it this time, but I'm trying to do my best *shudder*. We'll see how that will turn out. For those who are interested, I'll keep you informed anyway.

So that's that.

Comissions Information Sheet

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 20, 2007, 4:26 AM
  • Listening to: other people.
  • Reading: your mind, ideally.
  • Watching: what's going on.
  • Playing: with some ideas.

About Comissions

Rules and Comments (please read first):
What I do:
My gallery is not a parameter for what I am capable of, it is merely a guidepost of what kind of quality can be expected. Style and way of the picture are subject to change and depend on the needs of the client.
The main goal is to satisfy the client's requirements and thus, commissions of any kind are acceptable - everything from realistic, to portraits, to comic-like styles and even to surreal pieces. Even though my gallery is clearly fantasy and fan art related, this does not mean that commissions will have to feature this theme.

What I work with:
With sketches, line art and pencil pieces I am usually working with traditional media, unless the client asks for finishing touches that require digital alteration. Any coloured pieces will be done digitally, unless other media are specified.

Quality:
I promise utmost quality. To achieve it, however, vivid discussion with the person committing me is a necessity to assure that the client is completely satisfied with the outcome. The quality of the pictures will usually be comparable or surpass my later works in my gallery.

Time:
Unless the client is under time constraints I will work after my own schedule. This means a slow pace to guarantee maximum quality. I will not be able to tell off hand how long one commission will take until completion, but depending on the nature of the commission and on unrelated factors, work durations may be between two weeks and over a month.

Prices:
I shall set each price as a result of a discussion between the commissioner and me by a deviant note or mail exchange. Once the price is agreed upon through bargaining over it, I will start with the commission. Like this I would like to make commissions affordable for people who don't have that much money.

Contact:
If you wish to request a commission, the quickest way would be to
- write me a note
- write me a message on this page
- send me an email to: eva[dot]jutzeler[at]mysunrise[dot]ch

Payment:
Payment will usually happen after I've finished the commission to the customer's satisfaction. Details will be sorted with the customer.

Other:
I will take the liberty to not accept a commission if I think that I am not able to accomplish it with my current skill.




Taking Comissions

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 4, 2007, 9:50 AM
  • Listening to: the Soundtrack of Zelda - Twilight Princess
  • Reading: "Orlando" by Virginia Woolf
  • Watching: Death Note
  • Playing: Zelda - Twilight Princess

The Journal
Hey everyone.
It took a whole two weeks or more but I finally feel better. I guess it's because I finally decided to look for some help on the matter and go and see a psychologist. He made me feel a bit better.
And I've also been pricking my ears and have been on the lookout for a job. With moderate success, alas, but I'm not discouraged very easily with this.
So, I'm better. Even though I'm still a bit giddy, because of the exam repetition, I have the feeling I'm a bit more calm at this point.

Anyway. This is not what I mainly wanted to talk about - the main thing is:

I'm taking commissions.

In case you don't know what this means: I am willing to draw anything - and I mean anything at all (the sky is not even the limit) if you are willing to pay me.

If you're not interested, have a nice day anyhow! :)

You FAILED!

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 18, 2007, 8:02 AM
  • Listening to: the clicking of my keyboard
  • Reading: Orlando by Virginia Woolf
  • Watching: Tales of Symphonia OVA (it's great!)
  • Playing: Zelda - Twilight Princess

The Journal
Well I promised to tell you all (for those who are interested anyway) how it went with my exam.
Three words:

It was shit!

And yes, at the moment I really do feel like I wanna drown myself or that I can never make the resit. That I can never get a single word straight in an oral exam even if I study another three months and even if I understand what they call the "concepts" behind it all.

I don't know what I should tell my parents. Well, I guess it's ok to tell my mom. I mean, after all, she's always stood behind me no matter what. But my dad...?! I don't know how to tell him that he would have to pay me another semester's worth of study fees just because of that resit in September. Not to mention that I'm going to face some serious money problems by that time. And it's out of the question to look for a part-time job now. Better look for a real job afterwards.

I guess the only thing I can do now is cry my heart out and then rise up and try again. Because failing again without having learned anything, that's the real failure!

Or as Mickey Rooney put it:

You always pass failure on the way to success.

Well, nice words. We'll see if they make me feel less miserable tomorrow.

Exam Worries

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 15, 2007, 12:21 PM
  • Listening to: Kirite
  • Reading: Orlando by Virginia Woolf
  • Watching: Tales of Symphonia OVA (it's great!)
  • Playing: hopefully Zelda - Twilight Princess soon!!

The Journal
I don't know why I'm making this journal entry. Probably because I'm scared out of my wits of the Master Thesis exam I have on Monday... I just don't know what I would do if I failed. I'm running out of money and fast and if I have to do a resit I don't know if I can pay the rent till October (needless to mention that finding work after uni is an urgent matter as well).

I guess I could tell you the whole story of why I'm so scared: my professor told me that half of the stuff in my paper is really bad (just after both my supervisor and my co-author have told me that the paper is good) and the stupid thing is that he has a very valid point with most of his comments - and what's even worse: the things I've written there will be the ones I'll be tested on, and I'll be tested by my professor, of course. So I'm pretty much very confused right now to say the least. Thank goodness there are still some book chapters I have to read. At least half of the exam will be on those.

Right now I still feel like I should shrivel up and die. And the constant surges of adrenalin don't help my sleeping pattern either. Didn't get a good night's rest for the last three or four days, still I'm wide awake right now...

I'll just have to hope for the best. *sighs* It's probably as per usual. As in: I'm taking things far too seriously. But this is just the way I am. I worry too much. At least by writing all of this off my soul I get a bit more at ease.
Should anyone be interested I'll write another journal entry on Monday to tell you all how it went.
Till then!

Hello everyone.
It seems that I have a new journal layout. I had wanted to add a CSS layout for a while now and it took me one sleepless night and one morning to design and set it up. As with just about everything I'm not completely satisfied with it. But it will do for now.
There will be more changes, after the 18th of June, so look out for them!

Till then, have a nice time you all!

Oh, and credits go to FedericoRodriguez8. Some of the brushes used on this layout are made by him!

I guess there's nothing new to report. I'm just writing this so people don't think I'm depressed ^^. I'm not very good at writing or keeping up journals anyway. One of these days I'll probably be adding some CSS to this journal so it doesn't look as boring as it does now. We'll see.

Greetings to you all.

Many things are so odd in life. So far life has treated me with something that can be called nothing but luck. I think I really do belong to those people that have been blessed with a good life and I'm happy with how the dice were rolled for me. Even more so since I've moved out and together with a few friends of mine. No more mother to call me over and stress me. I feel a lot more relaxed now. A lot more harmonic.
Other people aren't so lucky. When I think about those who I have lost on the way. And those who have been injured, most of them recently. This year many of my friends have been involved in car accidents, one of them ended up in a coma and still hasn't recovered.
There would be so much to tell, but little is really of importance. At least not to you. You who roam deviantART in search for good art and rarely even bother to read a journal. You who just consume and consume until there is this feeling of unsatisfactory saturation.
I'm like that too. Happy yet unsatisfied. In summer I took a diving course to fill in the void. Now it's a Japanese course and the gaming, the mindless killing of time. I think even writing this is a mindless killing of time.
And because I kill time mindlessly. Working for uni, shopping, when I don't get home so late. Sports. And the mindless gaming and sitting in front of the computer and in front of the internet. I don't know what else I should do. I feel so wrecked in the evenings. Like the day isn't over. Like I haven't lived enough yet. The time of the day has been consumed by things I don't remember and I don't know where it has gone. Like the meat that has been sucked from the bones.
Yet drawing is not an option. It takes a certain degree of concentration I just can muster. And everything I try is crap. Sometimes I think that my whole gift is just gone and will never return. All I draw is crap. So unoriginal. Most of it fan art. What am I trying to do here? This is not art! Just silly copies of my unoriginal imagination. I guess I will never be original. I will never be what someone will call an artist. Never.
So, what good is it for? This gift of being able to draw?

I totally support this stamp btw:

I think at the moment I just have too much to do, to give comments on anything concerning dA. That means that I will be taking a break again from being here. I'm sorry to say this. Especially to people whose comments I haven't replied to yet. Also a big sorry to all those people whose pictures I can't comment on at the moment. I look at every single one of them - but I just don't have time for more...
For one thing I am in the middle of my exams and as soon as they are over I shall get into the stack of work that has been piling up and that I have been constantly procrastinating (forcibly) which includes my work for the game "Ages of Ilathid", several things for my uni I have to do, some of my already overdue drawings I have to finish… and two or so websites I have to design.

Come to speak of Ilathid. A first demo is now out at the website. If you want to play it, go here and follow the instructions.

AND WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR PEOPLE!
If you want to join the Ilathid Team and contribute to the project of creating a world, then please go to the website at www.agesofilathid.com and go to the forums. There you may post samples of your work and we will see if this is what we need. We are looking for renderers most of all, but also for graphic designers.



As you probably know I also have a photography account. If you don't know about it - you may visit it here:

I hope you enjoy this section of my art as well. ^^

  • Reading: Greatwinter by Sean McMullen
Keith Parkinson died just over a month ago. I only found out today. The news had shocked me deeply and made me think about a lot of things...
He was (and still is) one of my favourite fantasy artists and I always looked up to him as some sort of role model. An idol. Someone I could learn from. I know that it is idiotic to think that there could have been the slightest possibility that I would have been able to meet him somehow, someday... but it was a nice thought that sometimes came to me when I was working on something. A nice dream.
Well, the dream is shattered and I stood there for a short moment looking at the shards at my feet, careful not to cut myself by stepping on them.

Think... what do you learn from this? The world has been bereft of one of its most astounding fantasy artists. One of your idols is gone. What are you going to do now? It dawned to me rather fast: try harder. Try to be better, try to surpass yourself with everything you do. Try to ameliorate yourself with every picture. And work hard to at least try to fill this hollow death has slashed into the fantasy art community. Even though I know that no one could (or should) ever replace him, I am now determined above anything else to go on in his memory in order to keep it alive for others to come!

I will refuse to forget what kind of inspiration he was and still is to me!

As you probably know I also have a photography account. If you don't know about it - you may visit it here:
