Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant. Ok please look below.Symbol(s) for the non Premium Deviants2 years ago in Personal More Like This

SAY HELLO TO YOUR THIRD UNCLE'S WIFE'S MOTHER'S BROTHER'S SON'S STEP SISTER'S CAT'S COUSIN'S FATHER'S OWNER'S DAUGHTER'S SECOND BROTHER: Thats me in the middle (Not really) reading a book with a lot of relatives looking at me with their creepy faces. The thing is that all of those uncles has different unique titles, like 2nd uncle, 3rd uncle, 4th uncle. Then it can get more complicated like 2nd uncle's son, 3rd uncle's daughter. Then it can get even more complicated when you have to remember the title for relatives like your uncle's son's wife's mother's brother! And trust me even a complicated link like that has a unique title in chinese, and I am supposed to remember the title... Oh by the way as a duty from the youngest person in the family
Tales of the missing Car Park TicketThis happened two days ago when I had to go to a shopping mall called Westfield. I was there to receive my copy of Zelda Skyward Sword as well as trading in the frustrating Goldeneye Reloaded for possibly Skyrim.Tales of the missing Car Park Ticket4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story begins as I drove to Westfield, got into the car park, its one of those car parks that requires you to get a ticket and if you are only there for 3 hours or less you wouldn't need to pay anything, then they charge you per hour after etc etc. My mind was still deep in thoughts about my grandfather's death that happened a few days ago so I wasn't really paying attention to what's happening around me. So I got into the shopping mall, got Skyward Sword, got rid of the stupid annoying Goldeneye Reloaded and traded it in for Skyrim. I then walked around the mall a little bit, went into Toys R Us and wandered around like a pedophile, I even went into the girls section for a bit (What? I like Monster High, don't judge me.) I spent around half an hour in the mall pretty much,
Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Back from EB Expo 2013Hiya Ryceballs, I was at EB Expo 2013 last weekend to help out my friend Carlton on promoting his game Cell Surgeon. For more info on the game you can check out the company's facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/injoylabs I had free tickets to go for all three days, it was quite tiring because on two days it was from 9 in the morning till 9 at night.. yeah it was crazy. But it was fun none the less, got to try out many games and consoles including the PS4, Xbone, new Wii U games, Octodad, Knack, Beyond 2 souls, Pokemon Xandy as well as retro games such as Goldeneye and Super Mario. Now before I went to the Expo, I had no mercy for the Xbone, with their whole controversial decisions a couple of months back, I was not even gonna try out the xbone because of that. But... theres less people in the Microsoft area.. and there was a game that I really wanted to play, the game being KILLER INSTINCT, so I played it (many many times) and I gota say this could be my favouriBack from EB Expo 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
That art thief SOB in the Artist AlleyOk here it is, the long awaited journal about that art thief guy at Animania a few weeks back, I promised I will write about it and here it is. I thought a lot about whether I should write about this because if its just a random art thief then I really don't mind dissing his grass.. but unfortunately that S.O.B also happens to be the brother of a High School friend of mine... :icontableflipplz:That art thief SOB in the Artist Alley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This whole thing occurred in an anime convention that has been going downhill since a few years back, every year it gets worse and worse, to the point that I am now calling it Emptimania. It is no secret that the management is terrible, and that includes making sure that there are no bootleg stores around.... I don't know if they are just ignorant that there are bootleg stores there, or whether they dont give a duck because hey they get money from people getting a table. So anyway I was at the artist alley selling my things like usual, then a couple of tables down I noticed a guy, he looked fami
After Emptimania 2013 (And I rant)Hi guys LOL what a weekend! Remember last year when I talked about how bad Animania 2012 was? How empty it was? How bad the organisation was? Well this year its even worse XD It was so bad I joked that its more like Emptimania 2013. I remember there was a time when Animania was THE convention to go to, you had lots of people there all dressing up, everyone was into it, it was in a great location, it was also my first ever convention I went to, I dressed up as L and my beautiful ex dressed up as Misa. But now it seems like everyone dislike Animania to the point of hating it. Its understandable though, the entry price for one day is now a ripping $40, theres hardly any stores there selling stuff, one store even sold bootleg stuff, and Animania didn't do anything about it. Thats right, I was a few tables away from a bootleg store, the guy had posters of Miku and Shingeki no Kyojin that he 'claimed' he commissioned other artists to do, I further pushed him asking who these artists are andAfter Emptimania 2013 (And I rant)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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 Meat3 years 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
The Faithfully FearfulI think there's a very fine line between love and fear, or rather, they co exist perfectly instead of being separated by a line; they are two sides of a coin. And in relationships, you're constantly tossing that coin, like heads or tails, it's a 50 50 gamble on what's going on between you and your lovely. People who put in work, time and effort and who are real lucky mostly land that love side, things are going well and you couldn't be happier. But it only takes one fear flip to shake your foundation from time to time. And like love with its allies o happiness, fun, caring and so on, fear also has his lil team; paranoia, defensive behaviour, rash actions / outbursts. Just because you experience this on that one unlucky flip of that coin doesn't mean things are going bad! understanding that love is not pure and if something negative happens between you two then it can't be true but rather, love is the outcome through hardships and happiness. being fearful is normal, staying faithful isThe Faithfully Fearful4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hi its me your somtimes friendly neighbourhood Ry-Man. Ok I've been playing Injustice: Dogs Among Us :I. And kinda in a superhero mood at the moment, especially after playing the story of Injustice.. and without spoiling too much, pretty much the story starts off with Superman being tricked into killing Lois and their unborn child, which in turn changed Superman into killing his enemies and eventually turning into an asshole. I like how it shows that even heroes can have a dark side to them. This got me thinking... what if I had super powers? Would I use it to help others or just benefit myself? Would I use it for good or evil? Will my believe be the same as most people in the world? Or different from everyone? (Which would in turn make me a villain). Am I asking myself too many questions and worry that I might one day turn into a crazy woman with 20 cats? HMMMMM I WONDER!

Arts and Health is a new community project here on dA: Arts-and-Health that was started by Aeirmid with the kind support of Moonbeam13, Director of Community Relations, and namenotrequired, Astralseed, and Kaz-D. It is NOT an official dA group.
Its overall purposes are to encourage and help empower deviants to use art as a creative outlet for telling the story of what it is like to live with a health condition and to raise awareness of illness and resilience through storytelling. The group will share stories of trials and triumphs, hope in the face of the unthinkable, and resilience that comprises each and every human spirit. Art is a transformational medium, and through it we can tell our stories in a language that our words alone can never capture.
What is the format?
We are letting our members decide on the final format of the group. We anticipate that

These past few days I had people telling me that whenever they try to visit my page they get a warning from Google telling them that something's not right. That the Ry-Spirit DA page might've contained virus. Here's the message people get when they try to visit my DA page.

Ok apparently in roughly 7.5 hours later (from when I post this journal) there will be a big Pokemon announcement. I am looking forward to it, I have been waiting for it since a few days ago, speculating with fans and crossing our fingers for a Pokemon Snap U. But this is it! We will find out VERY SOON. I will edit this journal after the news is revealed to see what the hell it actually is. So yeah lets speculate a bit more and lets hands in hands welcome this Pokemon news together.

YEAH, gonna have to explain a bit. The GundamInfo Youtube page does actually have the episode on their page, BUT they "Don't have it available in my country" which sounds like BS since I was able to watch Build Fighters on their channel before so, why not this new show? It could probably be because it's brand-new or something along those lines.
Anyway, they did have a fix for this as the link above will take you to Daisuki.net & with it, a watchable version of Episode 1 for the new Gundam show. So, let's take a look at Episode 1 for Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans.
We start off with one of the main characters Orga being woken up by the actual pilot of the mobile suit, Mika. Apparently the mobile suit is connected to an engine & that the room they're in is top secret. Gee, I wonder why?
