Countdown to 2015 - TEN!!!!The year is coming to a close. A mere eleven months ago or so, this year stretched its newborn legs and wobbled forth. It steadied its step through January, found puppy love in February, enjoyed plentiful shades of green and much merriment mid-March and observed multitudes of celebratory rituals in late April (varying from the solemn to the hunt of chocolaty treats). Later, with eyes grown wise with experience, it witnessed streets filled with costumed wonders, beautiful and terrifying. And, through this all, 2014 has seen so many beautiful works of art submitted here, on DeviantArt!Countdown to 2015 - TEN!!!!7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
What better way to bid farewell to old man 2014 than a series of countdown feature journals, celebrating those works!
Please join me as I count down the days leading up the New Year!

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. 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.Confession. Im sorry.. well we are1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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 th
Happy New Year"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."Happy New Year3 years ago in Personal More Like This
― Neil Gaiman
Now, I thought about trying to write this really inspiring journal to touch people or make them cry or to know how thankful I am for the circumstances of my life and the consequences of the last year. But, really, this year I don't even have to try at all to explain that. You all know because you all lived it with me. I met people this year who I will carry with me for the rest of my life - I'm meeting friends in real life who I never would have met if not for this website and the community on which it is built.
This is all possible because we got stronger than last year, and we're stronger because we have each other.
We survived an apocalypse and the West Boro Bap
The Emperor and the ArtistThis story has been translated into many different cultures over the years, and I thought I'd share it for you all. I was told it a very long time ago. It's especially relevant when the question of "time" comes up when producing art.The Emperor and the Artist3 years ago in Personal More Like This
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A very long time ago, the Emperor of all China commissioned an artist to paint a picture of a carp. The artist told him he would begin work immediately. A month later, the Emperor had not heard from the artist, so he sent an emissary to inquire. The artist sent back word that he was working diligently and would send word as soon as the painting was done. Yet another month went by. Another emissary was dispatched and received the same answer. Finally, after a third month had passed, the Emperor set out himself for the artist's house, accompanied by many bodyguards and courtiers. When the Emperor arrived in his palanquin, he entered the artist's house and demanded that the artist produce his painting. Wa

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.

How to make your very own Helix Fossil PillowThese are INSTRUCTIONS on how to make a Helix Fossil Pillow like the one below. It is not a tutorial and I do not have pictures of the process because I didn't think of it when I was making it, and I'm not going to make another. You will need some previous knowledge of sewing to follow these instructions. I am absolutely not going to teach people to sew - there are lots of resources on the internet if that's what you want. I might add a doodled example pattern later, but that's pretty much all the help you'll get!How to make your very own Helix Fossil Pillow1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Materials ListIf you have any questions about repainting, please check this list first! My repaint tutorial is just a little bit outdated when it comes to materials. Over time I've been trying many different tools and techniques, so my materials list is a bit different now!Materials List2 years ago in Personal More Like This
◈ ◇ ◆ Preparation Tools ◆ ◇ ◈
- 100% pure acetone (found in the beauty supply sections) make sure it's colorless, and cotton swabs. I used to use Windsor & Newton Brush cleaner, which worked okay, but acetone is less expensive and wiped everything off easier. Do not allow it to drip onto hard plastics (such as the body) as it will melt the plastic and release fumes.
- Cling wrap, painter's tape, and masking tape; these are for wrapping your doll's hair and body to protect it from being sprayed with sealant or getting scratched/dirty. If sealant sprays onto the dolls hair, the hair becomes coated in dried, white, sealant that is difficult to remove.
