So glad voting is over ..For all Ryceballs outside of Australia, be happy that voting is not mandatory for you. Ok if you didn't know this, in Australia if you don't vote you'll get fined. So even if you do not care about what happens in the government or your town mayor/leader/guy or whatever it is called (Like me), you STILL have to make your way to the nearest voting place to vote. Well I had to do exactly that today.So glad voting is over ..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thats me in the middle confused as hell as to what I am doing there in the voting booth. I made a poll last week asking what the public think about this topic, whether voting should be mandatory or not, and 69% of you guys thinks that it SHOULDN'T be. (Wow 69). And I agree with ya'll 69%. I think it should be the people's right whether they want to get involved with our government mess or not, NOT FORCING US TO DO IT. Its especially annoying when you are out of town that weekend or you are just wayyy too busy to go. I myself travels a lot so its a hassle for me. Not only that but you ju
The Christ out of ChristmasAs many of you know, Xmas is a common abbreviation for Christmas. There is a misconception that the word Xmas is an attempt to remove "Christ" out of "Christmas". However this isn't true, and in fact it's completely retarded. The substituting of X for CH dates back to as far as 1021, and the English use "Xmas" goes back to 1551. Christians often used 'X' in place of 'Christ' for various purposes. Where this came from is abbreviating the greek word for Christ, which is Χριστος. 'X' is the 'Ch' sound and 'P' is the 'R'. The Xρ abbreviation is still used in many Greek Orthodox churches (see image). Also in various ancient christian art Christ is often represented with a 'X' or a 'Xρ' abbreviation. Historically the substitution of 'X' for 'Ch' has even been seen in names. For exThe Christ out of Christmas2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Virus Alert?Taken from Liepardmon555.Virus Alert?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you thought fighting the Internet censorship bills was bad enough, now we have something ELSE out to get at us! CryptoLocker is a nasty new virus that has just recently been discovered and it's FAR, FAR WORSE than all the hackers AND Internet censorship bills combined. What makes it worse than everything else is that a LOT of antivirus softwares - especially the big names - can't detect or stop it. If your computer get infected by it, CryptoLocker will take ALL of your personal files and encrypt them, then give you a time limit to send a certain amount of money to the mastermind behind this evil virus (that and he's pretty much uncatchable ATM)!
Your only hope is to back up ALL of your personal files on a USB key or a separate hard drive and update your antivirus (do it as often as possible). Also, DO NOT open random e-mails OR download e-mail attachments unless you're expecting them and don't do ANYTHING sketchy such as go on porn sites or watch cartoons o

Happy birthday, Rain~!
Raindom fact: Rain's birthday is in fact August 24th, 1995. Assuming the comic were going by real time, she would be turning 18 today. Mind you, considering it's taken over two and a half years to progress four months in the story, it may be a while before Rain actually turns 18 in canon. XD
I don't very often consider exact birth dates for my characters. Usually, I just name a zodiac sign and leave it at that. I chose Virgo for Rain (somewhat arbitrarily), but later reached a point in the comic where I f

So, the time has come. The winners have been selected after much deliberation (all the entries were awesome!) and are ready to be announced.
Also - decided last minute - some of the prizes have been bumped up. I have also replaced best background with "outside the box". So, I'll post what each award gets below the winner!
It was a tough decision for all involved, but in the end, this is the piece that was chosen for the first place winner. Not only is it highly detailed as well as being a small size, it was completed in a medium difficult for even some of the most talented artists. Brandon has amazing skills when it comes to wood-burning!
Prizes For First Place :
- One 9 x 12" Commission from me

Today, I saw my endo, and we talked a lot about SRS (sexual reassignment surgery). And, well, I have her blessing. That makes two therapists and a doctor writing letters of approval PLUS the insurance to cover it, so I can set off on the final step of transition. The surgeon whom I'm looking at is apparently a popular choice though (not surprising, considering every post-op individual I know locally has gone through her), and according to my endo, is booked for at least the next six months. That's... actually, that's fine. I may be covered, but there are consultations, copays, hospital fees, travel costs, and perhaps hotel costs to keep in mind too. So, I've actually got some ser

Conversations With Myself - What Did He Say?My fiancee and I were at Walmart not too long ago walking through the board games/toy section. This dude and his girlfriend walked by us, and I wasn't paying much attention when the guy blatantly proclaimed, "How about get a game called "How to suck a dick"?" I thought he was talking to his girlfriend, then my fiancee told me it was directed at us. Needless to say that I got pretty mad. I'm not the least bit surprised. Actually, I was wondering when someone would say something. I just didn't expect that.Conversations With Myself - What Did He Say?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.

Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :IconAldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.
Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.

Homophobic Rant*Edit, myself and "R" are no longer together but we've remained friends :3*Homophobic Rant1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys, this is just something I’d like to get off my chest. So, I recently started seeing a girl at school, we’ve liked each other since we met (November 2013) so I’m really happy about us dating. We’ll call her R for my journal. So, today me and R decided to let our friends know we were dating and acted like a couple openly. R knows I am Transgender and respects this, she calls me her BOYfriend and makes an effort which I appreciate so much.
But, even though R and my friends see me as male, at school I still have to go by ‘Catherine’, have the physical appearance of a girl and so on. So, to people that don’t know us personally we look like girlfriend and girlfriend. I don’t mind this right now, as I am not ready to come out as Transgender yet.
Anyways, after we let our relationship go public, rumours spread and within the next hour, almost our entire year was

Right when he showed up, he starts talking trash on Jacob. Granted, I do that, too, but now he has him confused with me! To prove this isn't fake, I actually like some of his work, and I recognize that others do, too. Also, him saying that he sucks God's dick at night is an unfair judgment to make, especially since we don't know if God even HAS a dick! So, everyone, please be aware that this poser is not me!
*edit* Well, now Jacob knows that it's a fake. I'm proud of him for that. What I'm NOT proud of him for is that he took his time to insult me! He says that I'm an immature brat, like he isn't, and he basically tells everyone to harass me! Seeing this turns my stomach, and it almost actually makes me WANT to make a new account just to insult him! However, because I am the more mature one, I will not, and I will simply r
