Bullet; White His dad who never supported his dream fought for Kyuhyun to get a surgery that wouldn't require him to lose his ability to sing
        His father said: 'This is a child who sings. He's a singer, his dream is to be able to sing; if you operate on his throat, then how could this kid live even if he survives?' 
Bullet; Blue If Kyuhyun didnt get the tracheotomy his chance of survival was 20% or less but still his dad refused. 
Bullet; White A certain Wang Youngpil, a doctor who came from China and to whom Kyuhyun says he owes his life, took matters into his own hands and told Kyuhyun's family that for the sake of Kyuhyun's dream to sing, they would find another method to operate without harming his throat.
Bullet; Blue When Kyuhyun was told all this.. about his dad's resolve and how he fought for his son's dream, he cried a lot. His dad protected his dream and did anything in his power to be sure the doctors wouldn't make that dream dissolve while Kyuhyun couldn't fight for it because he was still in a state of unconsciousness. But Kyuhyun especially cried because his father did all this despite the fact that he had always been against Kyuhyun's dream of becoming a singer and had strongly opposed to it.

Book of Life

Fri Jan 16, 2015, 6:51 PM
Img-10 by techgnotic

A Collaboration between MARX77 & DeevElliott

What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions?

Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.

We amaze ourselves with our achievement when we look at photographs taken of objects by man trillions of light years away, yet we are still so primitive a species that we throw rocks at one another. We grasp tightly onto the words, rituals, and beliefs of our ancestors, that our reverence might imbue them with magic and ultimate truth, so fearful and unprepared are we to attempt to understand or even acknowledge new realities and more accurate truths.

We clothe and feed ourselves from creatures we deem lesser than ourselves, even though technology has eliminated the need for this sacrifice. Can any of us who have been shown love by an animal ever look a pet in the eye and not see a kindred soul returning the gaze? Is it not our recognition of similar thoughts, feelings, needs and emotions in animals the very reason we are drawn to them and bond with them and bring them in to shelter within our homes and the bosom of our families?

We carelessly pollute our atmosphere, the single biosphere that sustains us, with the unnecessary waste products of our energy systems. Even though we have been gifted with the miracle of the singular star anchoring our solar system that made all Life on Earth possible. This same star can provide all the energy we will ever need.  Why do we allow the corrupt, greedy few endanger the future survival of the vast global majority? These are the shameful passages of fearfulness, cowardice and indifference that darken the Book of Life.

When did we stop listening to our elders—those with the life experience to know better?

Those whose deep wisdom is informed by the bitter struggles that are Life’s lessons?

They are founts of Information that could be invaluable and always available to us. Yet we choose to put them away in homes once their needs interfere with our lifestyles. Those who were the active participants in Life, whose minds are treasure troves of accumulated experience, are warehoused to await death along with those who chose to remain bystanders.

It is never too late to go back to the Book, to pick it up and dust it off. Open its pages and dip that quill deeply as you seek to capture the most honest and accurate assessments of your life experiences. Scratch into the pages the most salient and illuminating details of the experiences in your life. We have only each other and the records of life we leave in our wake to learn from. You are not inconsequential, not in your Book, for there you are a powerful transformative agent, the Hero who must triumph in writing his or her story – a tale instructing in how to protect and secure the future for all those wise enough to consider your words.

Every Book of Life can be read and experienced on its own, but there are always so many more things to be revealed in the sequels and prequels and contemporary narratives of other active participants in Life. Fulfill the promise of this greatest franchise by taking risks with your writing in the service of truth. This instruction may sound obtuse presently, but you’ll know what to “say” when your ultimate moment of truth presents itself at the most inopportune time and place.

What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions? Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.

Well, season 2 has finally come to a close,  and I'm sitting here and looking back on it all, with a few thoughts I want to share.

I just want to say thank you (again) to everyone that watched and enjoyed the MLP season finale this weekend.  There were lots of hard nights and long hours from all of us on the DHX crew to make it the best would possibly could.  Of course, there are things that are always going to be imperfect, but overall from what I gather, it seemed well-received.

I was also shocked at how many people recognized my OC pony that made a small cameo in this weekend's episode.  As a blanket response to a lot of the same questions I've been getting all weekend: No, I did not voice her and I'm unsure as to who did.  I would assume just one of the regular VA's.  She was put in kind of last minute.  The artist who drew her in the storyboard, made her look like my pony (just a coincidence), and after seeing it, I simply asked Ridd our Art Director if he could make it mine.  I wasn't sure if it was posible, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.  That's all there is to the story.  There was no "sneaking" about it.  There's not really a way TO "sneak" characters into a show, as every pony has to be built and designed in Flash first.  

One last and big thanks to everyone for all the kind words and support over the last few years (for my pony work AND original art).  I'm so glad to be a part of the MLP crew and to have the chance to talk and interact with fans.  Your love and support is overwhelming and keeps me smiling everyday.  Being a part of this has introduced me to so many wonderful and talented artists from across the board and for that I will always be grateful.  Your continued and constant stream of kind words and support never fall on deaf ears.

Looking forward to the future, and I hope everyone is just as excited as I am to see what's to come.

PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style

Mon Jul 29, 2013, 6:29 PM

Basic notions for drawing heads and faces
Welcome back everyone! :love: Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning! :love:

Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial :giggle:

Featured Artist - Bobby Driscoll

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 3, 2013, 12:43 PM

Best known to Disney fans as the voice of Peter Pan!

Bobby Driscoll lived a very short, rollercoaster life.

He was discovered as a natural actor in a barbershop at the very young age of five-and-a-half! And, he was the first actor to sign a long term contract with the Walt Disney animation department.

At the age of 12, he was given an Oscar for outstanding juvenile actor for his performances in So Dear to my Heart (A Disney Movie) and The Window (RKO Picture).

At about the age of 16, Bobby Driscoll played his most famous roll - Peter Pan. He acted out all the parts himself before they were animated onto film. He was also the first boy ever to play Peter Pan (traditionally, Peter Pan is played by a girl.)
Here are some production pictures for y'all!

Unfortunately, life doesn't always have a fairytale ending for us like in the magical world of Disney. ;_;

Bobby Driscoll was introduced to drugs at the age of seventeen, had several run-ins with the law, and was sentenced as a drug addict in 1961.

On his drug addiction:
"I had everything. I was earning more than $50,000 a year, working steadily with good parts. Then I started putting all my spare time in my arm. I'm not really sure why I started using narcotics. I was 17 when I first experimented with the stuff. In no time at all I was using whatever was available, mostly heroin, because I had the money to pay for it."

He managed to get rehabilitated by 1962, but Hollywood back in the day was less than forgiving. Because of his record as a convict and a drug addict, nobody would work with him. Dispirited and alone, he eventually died fundless in New York at the age of 31 - two children found his body in an abandoned tenement, and was buried as a "john doe" in a pauper's grave on Hart Island. His identity was discovered later on by fingerprinting.

"I have found that memories are not very useful. I was carried on a silver platter and then dumped into the garbage can."~ Bobby Driscoll, on his rise and fall in Hollywood.

Though his story had a less than happy ending, his life definitely had an impact on us. He brought joy and warmth to the screen whenever he was on it - animated or not. And, it serves us a valuable life lesson; don't become a slave to drugs, and if you know someone who has, don't give up on them.  

"A child lives in a world of its own, so, logically, a successful story for children must strike a chord in that world; possibly involve something he would like to do if he had the chance, like fly with his own wings or go down a rabbit hole, but above all, it must be something he can understand. Anything a child understands, chances are he will enjoy. However, everyone seems to enjoy these successful, so-called children's stories. For instance, you'll never meet a truthful person who says he doesn't like movie cartoons."~ Bobby Driscoll

Hello my fellow Ryceballs. Its been a while since I wrote another journal I do apologize, I have been busy lately with things. Well.. to be honest there has been some frictions.. with us. You might be confused by what I just said.. well ok let me begin by saying thank you to all the supporters over the years first, 6 to be exact! Ry-Spirit began his life on Deviant 6 years ago! Wow long time right?! And I think it is time that I share something with you guys. Just wanna be honest here.. There is no I in Ry-Spirit. But there is an 'Us'. Ry-Spirit.. Umm Ry.. He never existed. I will explain in this journal entry.

6 years ago me and 4 talented friends decided to make an account on Deviantart and created a fictional artist by the name of Ry-Spirit. We all had our own individual Deviantart accounts but we weren't really getting a lot of pageviews and attention, mostly because we have our own lives and don't have all day to just sit down and draw. But we really wanted a page that can get a lot of attention, we then joked and came up with an idea to create a fictional character called Ry. And make it seem like he is just one guy who sits at home all day to draw, but in fact we are 5 artists who contributes a piece to the account once in a while.

That way, we have created over 800 artworks on this account so far! We also tried to be consistent with our style..? but its kinda obvious sometimes that its done by different people... Like for example compare this with this one.

Cheers! by Ry-Spirit vs Mind Palace by Ry-Spirit

One is really cartoon simple vector style while the other one is rather realistic and detailed looking. You know what I mean? But no one pointed that out so we were quite happy about that.

So why are we confessing this? Why ruin the magic? Why not just keep it the way it is? Well we didn't think we would make it this far to be honest. What started off as kinda an experiment spiraled into a giant massive lie, the fans were very supportive, we just felt guilty. In fact we often argued whether we should tell the people about the lie.. and after 6 years we just thought, yeah we owe you guys...

And yes.. you have guessed it. We are closing the account after this, I mean the account will still be here, you can still come by once in a while and admire our art. But we just won't update it anymore, Putting an end to Ry-Spirit once and for all ^^" our team of five kinda grew apart over the years too.. we had our little friction that kinda put the final nail on the coffin. Drama llama!

So we are sorry for hiding this, I mean we STILL put in our effort and hard work to make these artworks don't get us wrong. But just not done by one person called Ry thats all... and yeah we are sorry but its true, Ry doesn't exist. He never did. He was merely a Spirit, remember how we mentioned how there wasn't any explanation for how the word Spirit in Ry-Spirit came about? Well here's the reason, he is just a ghost, an invisible ghost.

The Team

Well since we are going full out, we might as well reveal who we are. Have some closure to this mess.

Alfonso Franklin is me, the person writing this journal right now, Im in charge of writing journals and polls and making sure that there's a consistency in the writing part of Ry-Spirit. I also draw a little bit.

Penelope O'Donald is a talented artist who's strength is in painting. She was also my girlfriend but we are not together anymore.

Renmin Ong is an artist who lives in Malaysia, he specializes in Graphic Design so his work are usually a bit more designer looking. If you see an artwork in the gallery that looks kinda tripply and stylish, that's most likely Renmin's.

Irene Law is another fantastic artist who specializes in cartoonish chibi style artworks, Irene did most of the Pokemon artworks in the team's gallery.

Leo So is the 'Face of the public' as we like to call him. You probably seen him on previous journals about going to conventions and selling our art. Leo cannot draw but he can sell, so we have him on the team for that. He is merely the face of Ry-Spirit for any public appearances.

And thats it! This is gonna be the last journal entry from team Ry-Spirit. We totally understand if you feel angry towards us for not being honest that we are a group of five people, and trust me sometimes we do too... And you know what? Feel free to unwatch this account because there won't be any updates here anymore. Anyway. For the last time, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SUPPORTING US. We cannot be thankful enough for the love you have given us, of course we appreciate it! Thats why we are confessing here ryght? haha... a Ry pun. I am gonna miss that. For the team, for me, this is Alfonso. Take care and goodbye.

Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)

My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.

Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.

MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself. But I'm glad I finally finished this so I can go back to drawing other things / playing games without feeling like I should be doing something elseOHYEAHSALESTAXES.
