CHRISTMAS CALENDAR GIVEAWAYYeap! It's time for that! Well nearly time for that - these few remaining days are the time when you can enter and hope for the best on winning something! Here is how it works:CHRISTMAS CALENDAR GIVEAWAY11 months ago in Personal More Like This
On the December first, I will use random.org and pick one person from the favers to win some kind of art price from me or one of the donators. Naturally I will contact the person and tell them they have won something, and I will update this journal telling who won what.
I will repeat this process all the way to December 24th, aiming to daily updates.
How to enter:
- Fave this journal
- That's it. Nothing else is needed. Watching is appreciated for faster updates, but not requirement since I'd rather have you watch me for my art and not for free stuff.
EDIT// Should've mentioned - cause it was mentioned in the old journal I must've forgotten! No more entries are accepted, sorreh!
In prices, there are mainly art-works, music, points (ranging between 200 and 300), and even 2 premium memberships (1 one month

There are myriad ways to avoid completing a project, and one of them is to become the eternal student. Always learning, always improving, so that future hypothetical story keeps getting better and better... While somehow never making its way into reality.
But on the other hand, it might help to know a bit about swimming before jumping overboard. So where do you draw the line? What do you absolutely need to know before getting your feet wet with a story?
I can't speak for anyone else. But when I started Dreamkeepers, I didn't know jack about story.
I didn't know about inciting events, verisimilitude, thematic armature, pinch points, none of it.
Quite simply, I did not know what the hell I was doing. Which makes for an interesting question about my first books.
Why don't they suck?

Wack'em Sinteeeeek 13HD ReviewHiya Ryceballs. As some of you know, I was askin for opinions a few journals back about the Wacom Cintiq, you lovely people gave me some great advice and tips and one even went as far as to find me an Australian website with a cheaper price. And she saved me $200, so special thanks to KokoroKanon for doing that. So yes I have been using the Wacom for more than a week now, I didn't wanna write a review until I get the SmudgeGuard, a SmudgeGuard is pretty much looks like a glove cut in half, it looks like a futuristic glove in Minority Report, the reason I wanted a SmudgeGuard is because I tend to get sweaty hands so I did not wanna dirty the Cintiq screen at all, it costed me around $20 to get that. An alternative is just buy a cheap glove and cut off the top three fingers.... you can then use the cut off three fingers glove and put it on your head so you can pretend to be chicken.Wack'em Sinteeeeek 13HD Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This

(just warning, I won't accept over 200 on any of the days, and 24 has the biggest prize from me). Ofcourse you can still entter the give-away. The donators will NOT have double chances on winning, but they will be featured on my feature box on my page (Wich I will be cleaning after posting this journal.)
Here's how to entter:
- Be an watcher of mine BEFORE this give-away started! This is only for those people, a sign of thank you from me.
- Fave the journal. Just fave it, that's it. You have to the 7th of December to fave this, after that no more. T
Im allergic to Male DeodorantWell not exactly allergic, but I really dislike the smell of male deodorant. And yes you guessed it, I actually uses female deodorant.. *cries forever because manliness is currently at 0%*Im allergic to Male Deodorant1 year ago in Personal More Like This
^Thats me before I head out. I really do like the smell of female deodorant, it smells soooo good, like a harem. The only problem is that when I buy them in shops I get all tomato faced embarrassed... especially when I am testing the smell to see which one is to my liking... I somtimes deliberately not pick the pink colored deodorant just so its not as obvious :I
But how did this start? Why the hatred for male deodorant? Well I think it goes back to school days... especially in camps.. when the boys would play basketball and get all sweaty pamyu pamyu after the game...

Back from RysolationDear Ryceballs. I have returned. It was a short hiatus, but it was a necessary one. I traveled miles and miles on foot into the Indian Desert by myself, in hope that I would be able to find my missing soul, cos thats what people do when they wanna find their soul right? They always go to India. I called it my 'rysolation period'. So I was out soul searching. On my journey, people has been encouraging to me, giving me kind words and needed motivational speeches, I thank you, you know who you are. I think I am more collected and positive now. Yeah I think I am back. Oh also on my soul search I have had time to work out some 'things'. So yeah look forward to more 'things' from me in the future. The desert was hot as hell by the way, don't really recommend it, what my soul was doing there is beyond me.Back from Rysolation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok thats it for now.
Monthly themes are NO MOREHiya Ryceballs. As you may have noticed, I haven't done a monthly theme after my return from my 1 week hiatus, this whole once per menstrual cycle month theme title has just been stuck on 'Back from Rysolation month' for the last 100 years. Welllll thats because I have been thinking about what monthly theme to do next, usually it comes down to many factors when it comes to thinking of a theme. Like how interested am I to that particular theme? Do I have time to do many art for that theme? Why am I doing that theme? I would also consider what weaknesses I have, right now I know I am not very good at drawing animals, so I thought about doing an animal monthly theme. But these couple of weeks has been the most busiest for me, I just simply don't have time to draw because of work (Well my work is drawing as well.. so you can say i dont have time to draw because of drawing.. logic).

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

Nintendo is on fire at the moment. A tech demo showed Pokemon Xandy being played on the 4DS, when you get hit by a Squirtle the 4DS squirts water at your face, when you get hit by a Charmander the 4DS burns your finger and when you get hit by a Pikachu the 4DS electric shock your fingers.

My 3CHiya Ryceballs, today I wanna talk about three amazing artists that has inspired and motivated and kinda shaped who I am as an artist today, all three of them has a Deviantart account so you can check out their stuff if you like. And all three of them so happen to have their name starting with C, how about that huh? So I guess a tip is if you wanna become an amazing artist, change your name to something starting with C.

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

So glad voting is over ..For all Ryceballs outside of Australia, be happy that voting is not mandatory for you. Ok if you didn't know this, in Australia if you don't vote you'll get fined. So even if you do not care about what happens in the government or your town mayor/leader/guy or whatever it is called (Like me), you STILL have to make your way to the nearest voting place to vote. Well I had to do exactly that today.So glad voting is over ..2 years ago in Personal More Like This

And I agree with ya'll 69%. I think it should be the people's right whether they want to get involved with our government mess or not, NOT FORCING US TO DO IT.

1.GOTA BE A FAN BEFORE DOING FAN ART FOR SOMETHING
Yup, I have not seen One Piece or Bleach so I will not do fan art for them, Im sure they are great anime as people has told me, but I just haven't gotten around to watch it thats all. So yes for me, I gota be a fan before doing fan art for something. Otherwise it kinda takes away wat the true meaning of what fan art is right? But yes I do know some people who draws fan art of whats popular rather than what they like, I remember one time I was walking in the artist alley and saw an artist who did an artwork of a fandom that I like, so I spoke to them about the series and realised the person has not played the game or know anything about it, but just drew it because
