Hey guys, about requests.Lately, I've gotten a lot of requests to do art. And while that's fun, it also eats away my time.Hey guys, about requests.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And now that my co-workers are also asking me for drawings, I've had to put my foot down.
No more free requests, at least for now. I'm gonna have to charge money from now on. Not a huge price, but at least a little something to help fund my plane ticket home, plus expenses of simply living as a decent human being.
Anyway, thanks for reading. If you have questions regarding prices, sorry, that will come at a later date.

My dad had gotten so upset with his computer being slow because of virus's and memory space (he uses it for a lot of work things), that he's decided to plan on getting a new one. He said it's too much work to wipe the memory, and it "sounds too risky", so he's just going to give it to me when he finds his new one. WHICH MEANS I CAN WIPE THE MEMORY AND HAVE MYSELF A MODERN DEF FASTER MORE ENJOYABLE COMPUTER~!! (No offense, Old Lady Bertha, I love you, but you are not aging gracefully. Your years were up a LONG time ago, baby). So I really hope that works out, it'd be so much nicer t

I had to switch from my Internet Explorer (Yup, I was a IE-babe) to Google Chrome (And did I mention I didn't even use the Google search engine before, I was YAHOO baby!) in order to use the Muro program deviantArt had announced.
I had a tablet, I wanted to try this out.
NAY! Said the all powerful interwebz!
Yee shall have to switch browser to GC in order to use this feature!!
Oh yeah? Well F*CK YOU! I replied, nice and relaxed, y'know, levelheaded.
But time came and time went and my fingers and eyes were both twitching at the uppertunity to to try this shizz out!

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

Went Undercover as a Student at a UniversitySorry for lack of updates, I have been away for a bit. But now I am back to tell more stories and upload more art. Anyway. Sometimes Ry can be a troll (Just sometimes). And I did exactly that last week actually. I pulled off a 21 Jump Street. Right, so I was in Melbourne for a convention and I also stayed longer for a few days to hang out with friends. The night before convention, my friend Alice (Who is a core member of the Japan Club) invited me to visit her University at RMIT for a Japanese movie night as part of her Japan Club's activity. At first I was a bit unsure whether I should go or not since I am not a member of the club or the Uni. But I do like to watch Japanese movies, so I went! :iconmingplz:Went Undercover as a Student at a University9 months ago in Personal More Like This

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!

Nintendo announces Pokemon RainbowNintendo just announced the third Pokemon Black and White game, its gonna be called... POKEMON RAINBOW! YEAH BOI!! I thought they ran out of colors for the Pokemon games but the smart people at Nintendo got some creative guys together and did an awesome looking cover for the game. Rumours has it that Rainbow will be the most open minded game up to date, you know how Pokemon Black and White was all about right and wrong, good and evil, yin and yang, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones that kind thing? Well Pokemin Rainbow totally gets rid of that, everyone is treated equally and happiness is the only thing that matters. Recreational drugs and casual sex is also highly encouraged, you can dress up your Pokemon however way you want without anyone judging you (As you can clearly see in the cover). Unfortunately this can be quite controversial to the general public... but hey I appreciate Pokemon thinking ahead and having a modern mindset.

Devious Journal EntryJMM, My firstDevious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first time we spoke
My ears heard a song
The first time we met
My eyes sang along
The first time we kissed
My lips muttered the words
The first walk in the woods
Brought the chorus of birds
The first movie I spent
Held in your arms
In the background I heard
The whispering charms
The first time you said
I love you to me
The sounds of my heart
Could have parted the sea
All the firsts in the past
And the firsts still ahead
All the laughter and fun
And tears that I've shed
Was to find love in you
A love pure and true
A love that sings songs
That'll right all our wrongs
Love me for me
And not for my song
Love me for me
And I'll love along
I love you

I cannot say I'll guide you through this,
I cannot say we shall not fall.
All I am is just a Man, I pray that you will understand.
But with all that flows within my veins and with all within myself i give
To fight now and forever more for a love in which we both can live..
All seems strange yet all is true...Take my hand and say I do too..
This beautiful poem was not written by me, but by the one who holds my heart. Beautiful, marvellous, wonderful Knight in shining armour, who came knocking at my door one fine morning (literally!) when I least expected it (needless to say, I looked terrible the first time he met me and he STILL liked me. If that isn't love, I don't know what is!)
K, you are an angel. A perfect angel and a perfect man in my eyes.
This poem is his way of saying hi. So say hi back everyone!!

Man, what did I doSo I uploaded this as a curiosity and sudden realizationMan, what did I do3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And my god, when I saw this afternoon the response, like 400+ comments? A hot debate I created about beauty, being natural or not. I kinda feel like a troll
But on to the point,
Please, I just want to say before anyone jumps into conclusions, I am neutral on the matter.
I don't care if wearing make-up is good or bad, or makes you look better or worse.
I'm just stating the obvious; people can be transformed by make-up.
My purpose of this is to actually show make-up is another form of ART, and to me, being the most important tool in my work, makes wonders.
Sometimes being natural is boring (NOT ugly I say), and my goal is to create characters that can't exist but are born and molded from my head to you by makeup. And they are not always beautiful, not to me. But I don't care.
I don't know if any of you get it, what I'm trying to say, or if it makes any sense.
But whatever, thought I had to say it. :

Four years ago I was a really fat angry atheist who uploaded fan fiction and Microsoft paint anime doodles. Today I am a slightly less fat/angry atheist who doesn't upload fan fiction or Microsoft Paint anime doodles but maybe probably still makes them in her free time. (You'll never know.)

Thank you for making the art that fueled me when I was uninspired, and the friendship that helped open my eyes to the welcoming and nourishing community that would aid my artistic progress for years to come.

Do's and don'ts for flawless interactionNot much to say about this.Do's and don'ts for flawless interaction6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.
