Ten 1st World Problems caused by Mass Effect1- Irritated by Kelly/Samantha telling me that someone would like to talk to me on another deck even though I JUST CAME FROM THAT DECK.Ten 1st World Problems caused by Mass Effect1 year ago in Personal More Like This
2- Irritated that my FemShep runs like she has a sausage and eggs between her legs even though she's clearly a woman.
3- Annoyed that Shepard is carrying a gun in a cutscene that I didn't equip him with (where did he get it from??).
4- Irritated that the piece of armor that would give me great stats is just plain ugly and would ruin my outfit.
5- Irritated that wearing a helmet would increase my stats but I refuse to wear it because I then can't see my Shepard speak.
6- Upset at having to kill defenseless pyjaks to get a discount from the Krogan store.
7- Irritated that to play Mass Effect 1 again I would have to sit through all that pointless driving around in the goddamn Mako.
8- Annoyed that Jack won't get together with my FemShep even though I thought for sure she'd be the one female in the game that would.
9- Annoyed at Liara for giving me fifty c

2- Annoyed that my Shep seems far more upset at the kid dying than at any of his best friends dying. I don't remember any dream sequences about Shep 'jelly running' after poor departed Legion.
3- Magnetic walls. Here I am trying to resurrect my buddy by pressing A and yet because of my proximity to a wall I get slammed against it instead. Sorry buddy…I tried…RIP…
4- Embarrassed at my Shepard dancing in ME2 to try and attract Morinth when I am clearly a much better dancer than that.
5- Irritated that I just got message from someone saying "Come meet me on the Citadel" when I JUST LEFT THERE.
6- Diana Allers. That is all.
7- Frustrated there was no Drell, Geth, Salarian or Krogan choices for my squadmates in ME3. Not even a new race. Wrex was even on the damn Normandy for the whole game for cripes sake! Y U NO LIKE FIGHTING, WREX???

Difference between selling Art and selling MeatGreetings Ryceballs. Today I am gonna be talking about the differences between selling art and selling meat.Difference between selling Art and selling Meat9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It is absolutely fascinating how different the two can be! :iconyoudontsayplz: ... Well first of all, an artist likes their work to be appreciated and let the audience see for themselves whether they want to buy their artwork or not. While a butcher (ESPECIALLY ASIAN ONES LIKE THE ONE IN THE ARTWORK) only cares about selling the meat and making the profit, they have no sentimental feelings towards what they are selling, because if they do then there won't be any meat to sell right? One of the main rule of a butcher is to have no emotional attachment towards the animals, because they know sooner or later the animal needs to be chopped up. Well what about artists? Well they put their blood, sweat and tears into their artwork to make it as pretty as possible, all in hopes that the audiences would enjoy their art as much as the artist enjoy making them. NOW here's the thing thoug
Art is my Sword and ShieldHi Ryceballs! Today I just wanna share with you guys stories about how art has affected my life in a positive way, how it protected me as well as how it made me become a more confident man as you see today, this applied very heavily especially during my school years.Art is my Sword and Shield9 months ago in Personal More Like This
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. I wasn't one of those popular kids at school but I actually got along with ALL the stereotype groups, I got along with the popular guys, the nerds, the hot girls, the Hongkies, the Korean breakdancers, the wannabe gangsters, I even got alo

End Run | Plot.....End Run | Plot2 years ago in Personal More Like This
160 years before the events of Pokémon as we know the today, the regions were caught in the web of ever rising conflict...
Rival nations, Johto and Kanto, have been competing for centuries. At times the tensions have risen to the waging of wars between them. Bad economics, unscrupulous trade, spreading disease, and idea theft has been enough to spark high tensions between these two.
Recently, an unknown Pokémon (Mew) has disabled all the automated weaponry on both sides. (However machines are still usable, such as cars.) Being stranded without weapons, both countries have seen a lull in war. It has been 30 years since the last all-out war, but there is still enough mistrust within living generations to spark the fire. Moreover, the independent actions of occasional guerrilla fighter skirmishes keep tensions high.
In fear of their neighbouring country, Johto sought out a new form of protection: Pokémon.
Up until now, people lived in fear of Pokémon.
Commissions Now [CLOSED]Okay! So I've finally gotten my old commissions out of the way, and after two years of improving my art, as well as having purchased many commissions myself over that period, I am a lot more confident in the idea of doing commissions myself!Commissions Now [CLOSED]3 months ago in Personal More Like This
So without further adieu- Commissions from me are now officially open!
1) Line Art (Baseline*):

* Prices may increase with more complicated designs. The Baseline is my bare minimum when it comes to my commissions.
** These are very reduced initial opening prices and are very subject to increase in the future, I have been told by many that I'm still under-selling myself. Low initial prices are for me to test the waters com

When Note me about commission please prepare the following details.
- What kind of picture/set do you want to order.

Parts of "Brave" I worked onMany people have asked what parts of the film "Brave" I worked on so I figured it might be best just to post a journal entry about it. Warning... if you have not seen the film there might be some spoilers in this.Parts of "Brave" I worked on2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My role on the film was "Master Lighting Artist" but my general role is "LIghting Technical Director". Don't let the word "director" confuse you. I am not the head of lighting, it's just a term for every Lighting Artist that means our job tends to be technical and most of the "directing" I'm doing is kicking computers to get them to do what I want. For those who do not know what "lighting" means on a 3D animated film let me give a quick description. Pixar movies are not hand drawn like traditional animation. They more closely resemble stop motion film where a physical 3 dimensional puppet is made, a set is built, real lights are put in place and then an animator moves the puppet slightly then takes a picture, moves it again and takes another picture, until you have a whole "s

I am in a state of shock.
I am fucking upset. Beyond upset. I am extremely disappointed. I feel violated. I feel disgusted. HORRIBLE. Terrified and mentally dismembered. Distraught. I'm shaking from the extreme amount of upsetting feelings bubbling overboard in me.
My friends & I have dealt with things like this before, but it has NEVER been this bad. We have never gone this long without knowing something was going on behind our backs. & this is probably why Hannah & I are in such shock right now. I am usually told about these things & the situation is settled through Hannah for the most part, because I am not a dramatic person. I cannot handle drama, it really affects me physically. So, for a long time, I've been not bothering with handling people who impers
Hunger Games: An AnalysisI rarely talk about books that I like; most of the time I just bitch about what bugs me in writing that doesn't work. But having just seen The Hunger Games movie, I thought I'd do an analysis of why I like Suzanne Collins's trilogy, and just what makes it awesome for me.Hunger Games: An Analysis2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was partly inspired because I went to the movie with a member of my writing group and her friends, who spent most of the pre-movie time talking about the romance aspect of the books. Meanwhile, the Alamo Drafthouse played highly appropriate clips from Running Man, Battle Royale, and, of all things, dystopian-themed Lazer Tag commercials from the 80s. When I mentioned that Hunger Games had elements of Stephen King's The Long Walk in it, I received a few blank stares, and someone said, "Well, it's impossible not to borrow from other stories, you know." (Thereby completely missing my point.)
I won't talk about the romance aspect of the book, mostly because I don't care. Romance as a ge

Things you should never ask an Artist to doI write this to not spark a debate or judgement, only to share my personal opinion and experience in hopes of benefiting you and offering insight to people thinking about hiring an artist.Things you should never ask an Artist to do2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Things you should never ask an Artist to do:
1. Free Work.
Do I really have to explain this one? You wouldn't walk into any other business offering a service and ask for free clothes or a burger right? No, you pay for them without question and they take a lot less creativity, time to make and cost a lot less. Why ask people to work for free on something you couldn't make yourself? If you believe in your vision, then I suggest find funding for it to pay the people doing the work for you. This goes for family as well, don't get me wrong, I love my family and enjoy doing something for them but it means so much more when I OFFER to do something for free than when it's expected. Let the artist decide whether or not they want to give their time for free without asking them, as a rule treat them with res
New Years ContestHello Everypony!New Years Contest4 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since we've held a contest in this group, but the new year is upon us, and with it, a new contest!
The theme of the contest? Ponies celebrating New Years!. They could be celebrating it anyway possible - dancing, watching fireworks, hanging out with friends. That's up to you to decide!
Prizes? Instead of having first/second/third place, we're just going to have a "top three", and each winner gets a three month premium membership. It's easier for us to decide, and gives you a better chance at winning!
A few rules:
- Human and anthro characters are allowed, as long as they're a canon character.
- Original characters are allowed, but they must be show-style ponies only (no dragons, humans, cyborg ponies, etc).
- Although alcohol is normally a part of New Years celebrations, we don't allow pictures of characters drinking alcohol. Cider is allowed though.
- Images must be 100% original works - no tracing (from the show or other artists), no
