Wii U games Where U at?!The following is a rant about Nintendo and the videogame industry now days in general :'I Warning its a big wall of texts, Nintendo.. water u doing....
I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy! Difficulty level where did you go) but I might still one day go back to it and replay it from the beginning just for fun's sake, but then now what..? Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf
A RetrospectiveHello Ryceballs! So I was looking through my god awful gallery the other day and had a nostalgic moment when I saw some of my old artworks, I am happy to say that I have improved over the 5 years stay here on Deviantart (Thank god...). So I just want to show you a few of my earlier artworks and talk a little about the story behind each one of them. I must admit that the early artworks you see on this list is not REALLY the first few artworks I uploaded on Deviantart, but I have since got rid of my even older ones because I really really dislike them, I don't want you guys to vomit blood ok. If you guys REALLY want to see the ones I have deleted.. I guess I can dig into the abyss of my old computer and find it. Anyways here goes!A Retrospective2 years ago in Personal More Like This

PS4 vs Xbox One who wins?If you like videogames like me, chances are you have been aware of what's happening in E3. Everyone's talking about it now. Since a few weeks ago with the whole TV TV TV TV TV TV TV SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS Xbox conference I have been pretty unhappy with things that are going on with Microsoft. You can't play used games, you need to log in to your internet at least once a day to play games, and it feels like you are actually RENTING a game rather than owning it if you know what I mean. OK then at E3 today they announce the price for the Xbox One.. wait for it. $499 USD. Mmmmk alright, I kinda expected it to be expensive.. but here's the part that surprised EVERYBODY, it costs 429 Pounds and 499 Euros. Wait a minute what? So I quickly pulled out my little pink calculator and found out that for the UK thats equivalent of $666 USD (Interesting its also the number for Satan) and 662 USD for the Europeans. Yo WHAT THE HELL? Why do the people at europe hPS4 vs Xbox One who wins?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol. So the company saw my work and they told me to come in. I was reallyI will not be subjected to criminal abuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apologies for 3DS Swapnote/Letterbox SuspensionAs you may know, a few days ago Nintendo suspended 3DS's swapnote/letterbox (Depending on which country your from) system, due to users exchanging offensive material. What Letterbox is? its a software that allows you to write letters or draw doodles or attach pictures and send it to your friends. Its a great little fun software, I always liked Letterbox, I use it a lot to draw funny pictures of pikachu and top hats to friends. And... also for.. umm...... *deep breath 1 2 3* Ok. Ahhem, I am guilty of exchanging adult material to my 3DS buddy, :iconohgodwhyplz: and no Im not talking about naked photos of myself or anything like that ok! But of some sexy pics I found on the net... in 3D. Its mostly for laughs. its just interesting to see those 'pictures' in 3D. Also funny that we are using an innocent child friendly console toy for this purpose. SO JUST FOR FUN, me and my friend sent the sexy pics we found on the net to each other.

Interview-should you become a professional artistHi everyone,Interview-should you become a professional artist6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Meiyue has done a very nice interview here : Should You Become a Professional Artist?
She interviewed a few artists and myself about working professionally. The answers are varied as we all have had different experiences, so it's good to see the range of things an artist can go through!
If you are interested in art as a career, it might give you some tips and suggestions.
Pink pillow girl birthdayPink pillow girl birthday4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Warning: You may not care
But I've found a small piece of paper when I was cleaning my studio, It has some memo written on it, [such as old commission /art trade orders when I was a student], And I accidentally found that 25 August is my Pink pillow girl birthday. [the first day I've drawn/designing her on my sketchbook] her birthday was also written the that paper as well.
Link for anyone who don't know what the pillow girls are http://emperpep.deviantart.com/gallery/4305220 [They are my original characters]
I barely remember my Green pillow girl birthday, It was around 13-18 April, I can't remember the exact date because I forgot to write a date on her first picture.
And White pillow girl birthday is still a mystery, I can't remember it ...at all ,Because I can't find the first picture of her through a big pile of my sketchbooks. 8'C
I hope I will find her birthday soon, But
Season Wrap UpWell, 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.Season Wrap Up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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 i
Heart's Desire: the making ofI'm no cartoonist, but I'm pretty sure someone out there is going to appreciate this (I've always wanted to make these things, anyway!). Here I go in depth about the writing and artistic process of making the "Heart's Desire" comic that seemed to be fairly successful. It's a tad long-winded, but if you're interested at all it in the details, here it is.Heart's Desire: the making of3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The artistic process was fairly simple and made easy because I had scaled down the original image. The sketches were actually twice as large, but SAI couldn't handle that size. Reducing it helped me significantly, since it was what made the whole process really fast and done in less than a week.
It starts off with a basic sketch; most of the scenes had already been imagined in my head, with just the ending sequence being sketched out on the whim.
Outlines were refined, as well as black borders. I just filled the entire canvas black and cropped out squares for the panels. Not a really good idea for comic making, but I ne

FML. The Super Mario Galaxy StoryYou guys like story yeah? Let uncle Ry tell you a story, there's a lesson to learn here kids. Pay attention. I wanna talk about this now because last week was my birthday and it reminded me of this story, its related to a birthday gift. The gift was Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. This story happened a few years ago.FML. The Super Mario Galaxy Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out
Confession. Im sorry.. well we areHello 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.

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.

This is the Hall of Thieves. The one place in where the most notorious thieves lurk. I usually don't like to point fingers, but in this case, it has to be done. Why do I do this? Cause I can, but most importantly, to prevent further theft from growing. This journal will be in constant update. Ever since i had my art stolen, I started spying on possible art-thieves like a Shinobi. (That's why I chose Shinobi-Gambu for my username).
