Astrophotography- Some Of Your Questions AnsweredI have got to a point on this site that I am literally being inundated with questions about how I do some of my photos. I simply do not have time to answer them all in full individually anymore. It is seriously restricting the free time that I have to pursue this hobby and take those pictures that have become so popular (both on here and elsewhere). So for my well being and hopefully to the benefit of those who ask me so many questions, I am doing this write up.Astrophotography- Some Of Your Questions Answered3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I get into some questions though, I want to make a few things clear. I have spent a lot of time and money on trying to learn as much as I can to better myself with this style of photography. I love all forms of astrophotography and I really think I have found my niche. I hope to one day soon start making back a bit of that money I have spent. So I am not going to just reveal everything I have worked so hard to learn. What I am going t

Gravity Falls: Hidden Secrets~HELLLOOO Gravity Falls fans! I have found MANY secrets to Gravity Falls:Gravity Falls: Hidden Secrets~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the beginning, have you ever noticed there is a pyramid with an eye in the middle for a split-second at the end? Well, here is a video explaining it:
Well, I've never noticed this, but there are A LOT of hidden stuff that youtubers pointed out.Okay so first, here's the video
And here's some things that people noticed:
When the lightning strikes when Dipper shows Stan the footprint, doesn't it look like Stan has wings?
When it shows the trees, for ANOTHER split-second you can see the sascrotch. XD
When it shows Dipper's book at the end along with the pyramid, there are random letters right?
Well, at the end of the theme, there is sort of a whisper right? Well, if you play it backwards, it says three letters back... So if
you do the code in Dipper's book it says, "Stan is not what he seems."

Story behind it: we had to choose a random scene from a story we made for our Visual Development course at Ringling, and so my story "The Mimic" is about an explorer coming back from a long expedition in Antarctica to visit his little sister and her fiance. But there is something pretty uncool about him that they can't put a finger on.
Till it's too late, of course. c:

I truly wish I had time to reply to the more substantial comments on the film, but there are just far too many at this stage. I promise I had read all of them up to a certain point, and will read the new ones as asoon as I have time.
It brings me great joy (like, so much joy - words of elation are pretty devalued these days on the internet, but so, so much joy,) that you all like the film. This is what I want to do in life, and to have everyone like it as much as they have puts me at a loss for words.
All I can say is I look forward to the next film I make, which I have just started writing.
A thought.Death. We are who we are because of our experiences and influences, right? What we think of ourselves, other people, other things, crap beyond, etc. That stuff influences our choices, and our choices further build on us, right? Just brain activity. Electrical impulses. That's what keeps us conscious. What will happen when we die? When all those electrical impulses just...stop, how on Earth would that work? Yeah, the whole light and a tunnel, but if it's true that there's nothing beyond that, how could all our previous thoughts, experiences, choices, affections, hates, the part that makes each of us a unique person...just fizzle out? We wouldn't even be able to comprehend death, because we wouldn't be there. We wouldn't be able to see our life flash before us, because it's all gone. And we couldn't even think about that, because we'd be gone.A thought.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Guide to Fantrollingfirst and foremost this is not a do this don't do this set of rulesGuide to Fantrolling3 years ago in Personal More Like This
it is a this is suggested, this is discouraged/non canon set of guidelines.
names are typically six by six. i.e. karkat vantas. six in first name, six in last. or to use one of mine, vixira kisela. six and six.
they typically are relevant to the character and not human names.
"Karkat comes from "Karkata," the Hindu astrological equivalent of Cancer, minus one letter." " Vantas, on the other hand, is a prostate cancer treatment drug."
Vixira's name comes from the word Vixen, specifically the Vix part. Kisela comes from the words Kit, which is the name for a baby fox, and Sela, which is the name of a fictional fox.
The six by six rule isn't absolutely necessary by any means, it just tends to look nicer and is more "canon".
I've noticed with the canon twelve that all the girls' names end with either the "ee" sound or an a. Terezi, Nepeta, Aradia, Feferi, Vriska, Kanaya. Not necessary eit

Never let anyone tell you that something is impossible.
I lived by that when it sparked in me the possiblity of achieving something despite everyone telling me it being impossible otherwise. People have always told me it's impossible, that it's been tried. If you know what I'm talking about then your already on your way. What I will say to you ignore those who've been defeated by what they call "experience." Keep going and don't let anyoen tell you otherwise.
I know this might sound familiar even, never give up etc. But it's how I live my life even currently as there still are more "experienced" people who will criticize that I'm doing it wrong. It's the human spirit that'll keep us alive. This rings true to the events of my life, w

Deviantart is like the mother who gave birth to me. She gave me life as an artist, she allowed me to showcase my skills and creativity and even to express my ideas. Without Deviantart, there would be no Ry-Spirit!
Deviantart also allowed me to make new friends! Some of my closest friends I made are through here on this very website. And no they are not the three people in the image above, but those guys looks fun, contact me if you are one of the three people in the picture. Thanks
Deviantart has helped me grow as an artist and as a person too! Through positive feedback and compliments from the nice community!
Deviantart is like a home to me. This is the website I visit the most, I have made the most friends here, I also follow many other talented artists here who has inspired me. DA is my home!

It's a really great thing to know that so many people like what I do, and it's a good thing to remember in times when I feel down.
Sometimes I look at all the comments you guys leave me, and it makes me really happy to know so many people enjoy what I do, and encourage me to do more.
If it weren't for everyone here I probably wouldn't be where I am today,
and I hope that you guys will stick around with me to when I hopefully become one of those really amazing artists.
Thank you guys, you all mean a lot to me, and I encourage you to keep doing what you love as well!
Don't give up, because there will be and probably already are people that like what you do,
and if you keep working at it there will be even more because they will see how hard you try to do something you love, and you will get even better.
So thank you again, and again, and again.

Please read.Back whenever I started hitting the front page of DeviantArt, abit after I'd turned fourteen I admit that my ego popped up a notch. And not just one, mind you. No I was both surprised and in awe that some kid like me could end up taking up space in a place where only masterpieces and loved pieces were seen. And honestly, it stuck out like a sore thumb because seriously, My art isn't that good. I was blindfolded by pride in belief that I could actually go somewhere with what I had. But after awhile, pressure began to set in and I felt that more was expected of me and I couldn't meet those expectations. I'd never been exposed to constructive or negative criticism before that point; so I admit full heartedly that I acted out of line and childishly. Which led to people being angry and hurt by my stupidity, and I am sorry. It should have never happened, and I promise that it won't ever again.Please read.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tip of the day: The darkest momentsThe moment to shine the brightest is in darkness. Darkness can bring chaos but with it comes opportunity. Many times throughout my career when I pushed past the point when I'd usually give up, this is when I end up achieving my biggest successes. Fate seems to have a way to test us and only the ones that want it the most shall receive the fruits of their labor.Tip of the day: The darkest moments3 years ago in Personal More Like This
