Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse7 months ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac
A day of doing nothingHey Ryceballs. yesterday marked the day that I did absolutely nothing. I gota admit, the last 2 weeks has been one of my most crazy weeks of the year, there were just tooooo many things going on at the same time that has affected my emotional state. It was like an emotional roller coaster that just didn't end. Not just bad things don't get me wrong, but good things too. And being a guy who try to take as little rest as possible, I came to a point where I just got totally burnt out. I was just exhausted and tired and just felt extremely depressed. It has affected my judgement and logical thinking and it even shows in my polls to be honest, I don't know if people realise but sometimes the topic of the polls and quality of my artworks are affected by what's going on in my life.. but sometimes I throw in a few odd ball polls in there to mix it up so you guys don't think I am personally going through stress, so yeah 'poo flavoured icecream' isnt a thing from experience don't worry!

Icecream... even the title is disgusting *vomits*You know. Sometimes when I am eating with friends, or when I go on a first date with a girl. I always like to ask them this question, "Would you rather eat a Icecream flavored Poo, or a Poo flavored Icecream?" Usually I will lose a few friends as well as the girl vomiting in front of me like a scene from the Exorcist. I like this question so much I have even asked this question before in my polls and journals. But Ry do you ask such question mmmmmm? I'll tell you Ry.

Some people may say that they are both the same thing, HELL NO its totally different, one is an Icecream flavored poo, meaning it is literally really a piece of shit that has its taste (Just the taste) altered to make it taste like icecream. While the other is actual icecream, it has nothing harmful about it other than the fact that it tastes like poo. I have never tasted poo before so I have no idea what it tastes like.... (actually if you have ever tasted poo in your life can you leave a comment below
Back from RysolationDear Ryceballs. I have returned. It was a short hiatus, but it was a necessary one. I traveled miles and miles on foot into the Indian Desert by myself, in hope that I would be able to find my missing soul, cos thats what people do when they wanna find their soul right? They always go to India. I called it my 'rysolation period'. So I was out soul searching. On my journey, people has been encouraging to me, giving me kind words and needed motivational speeches, I thank you, you know who you are. I think I am more collected and positive now. Yeah I think I am back. Oh also on my soul search I have had time to work out some 'things'. So yeah look forward to more 'things' from me in the future. The desert was hot as hell by the way, don't really recommend it, what my soul was doing there is beyond me.Back from Rysolation1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Skipping School for VideogamesHi there Ryceballs, its story time again. So come over and sit on papa Ry's lap, this will be fun. I'm gonna be talking about how I used to skip school to go home and play videogames, I used to do this a lot. Now before I begin I just gota say.... kids DO NOT skip school, get those grades cos you'll need them in the future! My grades at school were terrible, for good reasons too.. like this whole truanting deal for one. Im REALLY lucky that I am still alive today I swear. SO DON'T FOLLOW WHAT I DID, Im bad influence ok.

You know, the cool kids would skip school to bring their hot girlfriend home for some hardcore snogging. While kids like me would skip school, then go home to spend time rescuing Princess Zelda. My parents were really strict though, I was only allowed to play my 64 on the weekend and only an hour per weekday, I always wondered if they were actually Ganondorf's minions.

Ash had Gary Oak, Goku had Vegeta, Naruto had Sasuke. Do you believe that having a rival can help you improve in whatever you do? I do. I remember back in High School I got lots of praises from my classmates for being the greatest at drawing, I liked to draw in my diaries and homeworks alot Which explains why my marks were soooo FREAKIN TERRIBLE!. And there was a friend (I used the term very loosely) who would always try to find ways to make people feel like crap, this time it was no exception, he figured out what I liked and stabbed that piece of pure innocent heart with a sharp poisonous knife, he told me my drawings is poo compared to this other guy our year, I have never seen that guy's artworks before so my friend went as far as to sneak into the library storage room where everyone left their bags at, opened up the guy's bag an

1.GOTA BE A FAN BEFORE DOING FAN ART FOR SOMETHING
Yup, I have not seen One Piece or Bleach so I will not do fan art for them, Im sure they are great anime as people has told me, but I just haven't gotten around to watch it thats all. So yes for me, I gota be a fan before doing fan art for something. Otherwise it kinda takes away wat the true meaning of what fan art is right? But yes I do know some people who draws fan art of whats popular rather than what they like, I remember one time I was walking in the artist alley and saw an artist who did an artwork of a fandom that I like, so I spoke to them about the series and realised the person has not played the game or know anything about it, but just drew it because

HMM this topic started when I was talking to the Rainbros (Members of my Pokemon Rainbow group) about whether I name my Pokemon after anything, and I told them I like to have a consistent theme for each game when it comes to names. For Pokemon Black and White 2 I named my Pokemon after K-pop idols, for another Pokemon game I named my Pokemon after movie stars that I liked, and one time I gave all my Pokemon food related names. I remember for my first ever Pokemon game 1000 years ago I used to give my Pokemon dirty names (As you do), popular ones include Psyf*ck, Pikapoo, SlowpokeHer, Dicklett, Butterpee... yes I was a messed up child.

-Why don't you just take a photo and a bunch of other stupid yet justified questions-
After years of being bothered by the same question , I have finally decided to write down my feelings and thoughts about this issue. And I think the timing is perfect considering I've somehow reached a stage of finding satisfaction in my own work; which will hopefully result in this journal being informative, interesting, maybe even educational, but above all stop people from being prejudice. If I had written it earlier it probably would have resulted in ranting and raging, at least to some degree.
I hope you will enjoy this read, but unless you think you can relate or learn more about some things, stop reading because this is going to be LONG
Let me start by asking you - what about your own work makes you feel like an artist? What makes any of us 'artists'? Many people imagine artists to be somewhat like mad scientists, but the

Chardon School Shooting :(Today was, by far, the scariest day of my life. I woke up with that feeling...that one that was telling me it was going to be a bad day. I should have leaned on that feeling. All I can say right now is I am thankful the students that made it alive are alive. The injured that are still breathing, their life has been changed. I will keep them in my thoughts and in my prayers.Chardon School Shooting :(3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is my story for today...maybe I shouldn't call it a story, because it isn't.
I was sitting in the high school cafeteria -like I always do- waiting for the Auburn Career Center bus to pick my friends and I up for school. Everything was completely normal.
From the hallway, I heard a loud crack. It sounded like a balloon popping, or someone squeezing a bag of chips till it explodes. I turned to my right, and saw nothing. I heard three more loud cracks, this time they were close together. When I turned to my right again, a student, who I recognized, was standing with a gun. As he pulled the trigger, I saw fire burs
Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant. Ok please look below.Symbol(s) for the non Premium Deviants1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Back from EB Expo 2013Hiya Ryceballs, I was at EB Expo 2013 last weekend to help out my friend Carlton on promoting his game Cell Surgeon. For more info on the game you can check out the company's facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/injoylabs I had free tickets to go for all three days, it was quite tiring because on two days it was from 9 in the morning till 9 at night.. yeah it was crazy. But it was fun none the less, got to try out many games and consoles including the PS4, Xbone, new Wii U games, Octodad, Knack, Beyond 2 souls, Pokemon Xandy as well as retro games such as Goldeneye and Super Mario. Now before I went to the Expo, I had no mercy for the Xbone, with their whole controversial decisions a couple of months back, I was not even gonna try out the xbone because of that. But... theres less people in the Microsoft area.. and there was a game that I really wanted to play, the game being KILLER INSTINCT, so I played it (many many times) and I gota say this could be my favouriBack from EB Expo 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This

What exactly is this "job" I kept mentioning for the past months:

This is a photo of me when I was at school. I wasn't the best looking fella and wasn't very smart either, all I did was play Pokemon and daydream, actually I was pretty much setting myself up for great humiliation and constant bullying with what I do lol. But one thing kept my head above water, I used to draw... a LOT. I used to draw in my little pink diary as well as even drawing in my homework. I just really loved.. to draw. And you know what? I gained a lot of respect for that.

Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident1 year ago in Personal More Like This
