Thank you so much for the people who have started the awesomeness twelve years ago, thank you for every awesome Deviant who put their heart and soul in their Art, thank you for the love and support that makes this wonderful community way too special.
Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start – my apologies if some points in this journal are not clear because of language, I am not a native English speaker.
I'm not giving these advice as a professional or an elite artist (I hope I was!), just sharing my learning experience and some personal understanding of conceptual design and arts. Please ignore or correct me if I got things wrong.
Ok. Some related information about myself – I studied computing at university, in my final year I found myself really lack of interests in programming or

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. Got that? GOODSkipping School for Videogames2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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. Yo the princess needs to be saved wat r u doing?! What wins is that I liv
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 Meat1 year 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

Photoshop, my wifeDID YOU KNOW? I use Photoshop to do my drawings? ITS TRUE! Im guessing people don't know about this because once a week I would have someone asking me ^^ well thats fine. Today I am gonna share with you lots my history with Photoshop, how we met, how we worked out our differences, how we bonded, and how we eventually took another step further. <3Photoshop, my wife2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Me and Photoshop met some time in the 2003? (Its been 10 years already?!) She was introduced to me by my cousin. At first I didn't know what to do with her, I just started playing around with photos, like adding flames on my hair, going all nuts with filters, editing clothes off of my favourite celebrities (Yeahhh I did that. Don't judge mE! ;___; ). We got along quite well, I was surprised that I could just know a few tools and do something crazy with it! I think I was using Photoshop version 7 and being quite happy with all the tools and filters I got. It was a good start
Then new versions started coming out and I moved on to a newer vers

Cosplay photo blog for ToyCon 2013!ToyCon 2013!Cosplay photo blog for ToyCon 2013!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give
CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In TimeA couple of things: GIMP lags on me now which makes it a pain on me and my laptop to record process videos. And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions. Further info about my process will be located under each WIP shot!CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In Time1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I was very happy to visit AKUMAKON in Galway (Ireland) in January. Together with Elffi I went to Ireland for my first time ^.^~
I brought two costumes to the con: ALTER SABER and FRANZISKA VON KARMA ....
Let's begin with Saturday !
Saturday was a really nice day. I wore my Franziska von Karma together with Elffi as Godot.
We had a little booth were we could sell our prints. We were really surprised how open and kind the Irish people were. We could find new friends very fast and had fun to talk with everybody at the booth for a long time .
