japan is beautiful!i finally had the opportunity to travel again after last year's euro trip. this time i'm going to japan for a week with my family. i have always been fascinated with japan and its culture and going there really reaffirmed my fascination. i only went to osaka, nara, kobe, and kyoto, no tokyo sadly because there's just not enough time. that would reason enough to come back to japan i guess.
anyway, i took lots of photos during my trip so expect some new uploads on my gallery! (finally!!)
eid mubarak!hey everyone, how are you? hope you're doing great.
it's eid here in indonesia so eid mubarak to all of you who celebrates! may this joyful festivity be the reminder for us to keep advocating peace, compassion, and tolerance through our actions. taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum.
anyway, sorry for still not being able to keep my promise of updating this gallery of mine. work has been really busy and i barely have time to pursue personal projects. i also no longer work as web designer so there's really not much that i can show work-wise. i decided to move from design department to project management at work because i feel like the latter could give new experience and things to learn. it's hard stepping out of my comfort zone at first but i surely don't regret making that decision.
btw, i just joined instagram recently, you can check my profile here: http://instagram.com/arhcamt. it has been a while since i touched my camera and being on inst
remember me?i'm really thankful if you still do. haha. can't believe my last activity here was about five months ago. and not a gallery update like i promised in my previous journal post. i'm so bad at keeping promises. -_-
anyway, happy new year everyone, wish you all 365 days of greatness ahead! looking back, last year has got to be the best year of my life so far. the highlight is definitely may-june where i had my euro trip. i broke so many self-boundaries and ventured so far out of my comfort zone it's almost unbelievable. if someone told me i would do what i did i probably would laugh at them. but i did. it happened. i experienced a lot of things during my trip, learned valuable lessons, and met amazing people. i certainly wouldn't have grown that much had i not brave enough to forget the risk and take the leap of faith. i feel grateful and blessed that i get the chance, i understand not everybody has that kind of opportunity.
i never have new year's resolution list because i know that i'll
back from euro trip!hi everyone, how are you? hope you're doing good!
as the title says, i've completed my 42 days travel and came back to jakarta a couple days ago. it's an amazing experience and dare i say life-changing. at first i was kinda afraid about it because everything is new and so out of my comfort zone. i even had cold feet once, i was seriously considering about cancelling the trip but i went with it anyway because i somehow felt that if i didn't make that trip at that time i never would. so i did. and it was nothing but amazing.
i planned on writing a more elaborate report about my trip in the form of blog posts, even book perhaps. i want to share the story and hopefully inspire people on the process. i think it's something that everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime. i can't help with the funding so the least i can do is at least help with the determination. wish me luck.
i took tons of photos during my travel so expect to see some activity (finally!) in my gallery. (hey
departing for europe soon + prints for sale!hey everyone, how are you? i hope you're doing great.
like what you have probably heard before, i will be having my long-awaited euro trip really soon. in fact, i'd be departing for amsterdam, my first destination, in only a couple days. i am both excited and anxious about the trip because i haven't actually finished all the preparation for the trip and i have never been there before. i hope everything goes well and i don't get lost there. haha. i'm planning on documenting the journey on my facebook here: http://facebook.com/rachmatlianda so feel free to stalk me there.
on a side note i have put all my available prints on sale so please do get one (or some) for your wall. i'll be using up all my savings for this trip and it would definitely help to have it filled again. who knows maybe i'll have the chance to visit US next. i think i'm starting to fall in love with traveling.
anyway thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
need your help for my euro trip. :)yes you read it right. i will be going to europe to fulfill my lifelong dream! i'm beyond excited. i have only purchased the tickets so far, i hope there will be no trouble in obtaining the schengen visa. i will be departing on april 2012 so i got some time to prepare. i will be there for about 2 and half months so i'm kinda risking my job here. if i don't get the permission then i guess i'll just have to resign. i don't mind though, that's the risk i'm willing to take. crazy i know, but i don't get many chances to be crazy so might as well take this one. i still haven't really decided which places i'd like visit. i'm having trouble choosing because i want to visit them all!
my budget is not unlimited, in fact it's actually quite limited, which is why i'd like to ask quite a favor to my fellow deviant friends here for a place to stay during my couple days visit. i have some friends who have kindly offered me a place to stay but chances are i'm gonna need more as i'll be go
it's my birthday. :D
long time no see everyone! how are you? i hope you're doing good.
so today is my birthday and just like last year and the year before that i tried to sum up this year into a single typographic work. i almost forgot i had this project, thankfully i just remembered about it out of nowhere. haha.
basically this has been a.. life-changing year if i could say so myself. i learned lots and lots of thing and i can feel that i'm a different person from myself one year before, for better or worse. more of the better i hope.
again, i'd like to apologize for my lack of activity here. at times i feel like i want to go back to those times where i could create something almost everyday but i have to admit that those days are gone. it's a bit hard to take for me actually but i'll manage. i'm not saying i'm leaving here for good. this place has been a home for me and it will always be. for now i'd like to think of my absence here as going somewhere else for a vacation. i don't k
still alive. but depressed.not because i have things i want to complain about my life (okay, that maybe too) but because i watched grave of the fireflies last night. i've heard that it's a sad story but i have no idea it would impact me this much. the thought that it's the very depiction of the cold reality and that it could be happening to children all over the world everyday makes it even worse. this made me feeling broken and defenseless but at the same time i feel glad i got the chance to see this. i have to say it's studio ghibli's masterpiece. if you haven't watched it then i really recommend you to do so but i'm warning you, the post-watch experience might be somewhat unpleasant.
anyway, how are you? i hope you're doing great. it feels like ages since the last time i was here. this used to be my second home but now i can't help but feel like a stranger. as for me, life is good actually. i got my dream job, i get to do what i like and get paid for it, i ma
Rapunzeli saw the movie yesterday and it's just AMAZING. i didn't plan on watching the movie actually. i'm not really excited about it because i prefer it to be 2D animation like princess and the frog. but since i have some time to kill i decided to just watch the movie.
the movie had me at the first 5 minutes. the voice acting is good, the songs are nice, the animation is smooth, and the story is great too. but what i love the most about this movie is how every frame is an artwork. i have to say this is definitely one of disney's best animations. i will totally watch this movie again. definitely a 10/10.
watch it on 3D. it's worth every penny.

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)

Photography is wandering in the Universe"Photography is wandering in the Universe by yourself", Sergio Larraine
Following is a beautiful letter written by Sergio Larrain in 1982 to his nephew, who had previously asked Larrain where to begin to become a photographer.
First and foremost, you have to have a camera that fits you well, one that you like, because it’s about feeling comfortable with what you have in your hands: the equipment is key to any profession, and it should have nothing more than the strictly necessary features. Secondly, get yourself an enlarger, the easiest and most useful you can find (the smallest manufactured by LEITZ is the best for the 35mm format, it will last your whole lifetime).
The game is going on an adventure, like a sailor boat: drop the sails. Go to Valparaiso or Chiloè, be in the street all day long, wander and wander in unknown places, sit under a tree when you’re tired, buy a banana

Vanguard, Chapter 1: DuncanDuncan's Journal: Day 1288
I consider myself a good man. I respect women, elders, my equals, and the dead. I say a morning prayer, and an evening one. Hell, I even thank the gods for a meal, instead of immediately chowing down in the voracious manner as the other soldiers here do. By all logical means, I should be in paradise. No really, not just because I'm a good man, but also because I should be dead by now. So I ask myself: why, oh gods up there, have I ended up in hell?
1288 days. 1288 days of my life have been spent in this misery, and I'm beginning to lose faith in the glory I was promised. Some of the rookies still live in their ignorant bliss, but I've lived long enough to realize that there's not much glory to find here. “Sing the songs of glory and march into battle—-join The Crusade today!”. Such were the words of the posters The Crusade has spread all over The Mortal Realm. Gullible fools practically stand in line for these songs of glory that th
