Tagged. Sh*tHiya Ryceballs. So.. I was tagged by somone in one of those survey thingy, usually I tend to ignore tags... But this is a friend of mine, so I must do it. And she even bothered to make a video tag too, thank you for that! I also was gonna make a video as a reply until I realise I dont wanna show my face. (Camera shy) Lucky she gave me permission to stay in my comfort zone and write about it in my journal if I like. Here's her video by the way, by Ms :iconminnibutt:

1. What's your biggest fear?
There's NO WAY Im telling anyone my biggest fear, that would be like showing your weakness allowing yourself to be open for attacks. I swear if I let this slip, there would be people coming up to me putting their hand on the back of my head and shouting "HEY RY THERE'S A SPIDER ON YOUR HEAD!" and I'll be running around screaming and crying like a little girl, jumping into the closet then freaking out again as I i
27Shoot, its that time of the year again where for unknown reasons random people start saying 'Happy Birthday' to me. Yes it is true, I am another year closer to death (Ry is really optimistic sometimes isnt he?). WELL its all good, I mean I just wanna take a minute to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday, today has been quite pleasant actually. Received many gifts from fellow Ryceballs, some nice messages, and I did a little Livestream that I think people quite enjoyed and had a good laugh. All going well so far. So yes, 27 years down, what a life! Well since today is my special day, I have decided to take you guys for a ride in the Life of Ry journey, what was Ry doing 5 years ago? 10 years ago? 20 years ago?!

I can't teach you how to draw...I'm tired of getting this note.. I can't teach you how to draw, honestly no one can magically make you a good artist.I can't teach you how to draw...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The most I can do it, is red-line anatomy and give you critiques, On what I personally think is right. You might have a different view since art is what you make of it, we are all open to our own interpretation but no one is 100% right.
If you really want to become a good artist, you need passion to do so, a drive to become better, study hard and hone your skills, if you don't have that, then you can never become better.
No fancy tablet, program, or expensive equipment can make you a better artist, it can help it look a little nicer yes, but the skills to make it, is all on your trail and error from experience.
IF you really want to learn how to draw, get inspired forget about fail, just enjoy it have fun with your art, Art shouldn't be work to you, it should be pure entertainment.
if your not enjoying it, maybe art isn't your t

Animal Planet (rant?) (update)Wild west Alaska, why is it on Animal planet ._. I don't have that big of a problem with hunting, but isn't animal planet a channel for the love and care of animals? Not guns and shooting them.Animal Planet (rant?) (update)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I first seen it come on, I had to double check my TV guide to make sure I wasn't on some hunting network.
seems to me, animal planet is getting a little too human
New info about the new animal planet.
After a 9% drop in prime time viewing in 2007, Animal Planet underwent a makeover to increase viewership. Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manage of Animal Planet Media said,
"We feel a little too human, a little too soft, a little too all-family and not powerful enough. We're being more aggressive and tapping into the instinctual nature of compelling animal content.
The channel wanted to replace its paternalistic and preachy image with a more entertaining and edgier one beginning February 3, 2008 and debuted eight new series and specials. R
Some advice on tweeting the MCR guysAfter everything Gerard’s been through on Twitter recently, I figured it was time to list some guidelines for tweeting the guys. I hope I don’t sound controlling or condescending, but a lot of fans seem to honestly not understand why certain things are offensive, and there are a lot of misconceptions like “oh, he’ll never see it anyway.” Hopefully, this guide will help us show the guys respect.Some advice on tweeting the MCR guys2 years ago in Personal More Like This

But we know that Gerard, Mikey, and Frank see nasty tweets, because they’ve responded to a few, and they must s

never something people should pretend to have to feel part of a minority.
never something that should have become a fad to play with.

What is real music?“MCR saved my life, and their music is so meaningful, unlike other music today like rap and country.”What is real music?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me tell you, friends, there is not a more ignorant statement to make you look foolish and naïve when it comes to music. Whenever I see a fellow MCR fan state something like the above, I can only roll my eyes and scoff at the stupidity of such an idea. As they say, there is much more than meets the eye. If you simply graze the surface of a music genre and consider everything else to be more of the same, you miss the greater picture deduced on the tip of a proverbial iceberg.
It surprises me that some MCR fans feel so fanatically about other music genres outside of the MCR music-relation world, considering they have been given this treatment by the general public as well. “My Chemical Romance leads a death cult”, “My Chemical Romance fans are all emo kids who cut themselves”, “My Chemical Romance plans mass suicide pact after death

Standing up against price complaintsDisclaimer: if you aren't going to read this journal completely to understand the concepts I'm bringing up, do not bother to comment. Random angry/drama-spewing comments from TL;DR-ers are unwarranted and unwelcome. Thank you for understanding!Standing up against price complaints3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just had a new complaint about my prices for my Pay to use deviations... I've had a few of these in the past (for both commissions and pay-to-use deviations) and I try to handle them the same way.
1.) calm any frustration
2.) collect my thoughts
3.) and write my explanation for my own actions.
(I seriously have to explain my own actions and decisions that I have chosen for the permissions and pricing of my own creations? Really??)
I know that most people that complain aren't intending to be rude... but they end up looking that way to artists. (Especially to artists that are trying to make some extra $ to support their passions as well as their food, their rent/mortgage, car loans and other bills.) Art isn't just fun
Rivals and IdolsRivals and Idols2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I personally feel that you should see people you admire/idols as a level you should strive to achieve or surpass, not think of them as gods you can never hope of ever being like.
That will only make you depressed and not strive to be great, we all have Potential as long as we have a passion for what we do.
I suggest taking a look at a person you admire the work of, an setting your self a goal to achieve that level! Make them a Rival in your mind, think of them as a person that started out just like you, but are a wee bit ahead of the game, you may have a little farther to travel on your journey of becoming better or surpassing them.
But never give up keep up that burning passion.

Shaving Faux fur:
For Faux fur plushie makers, You should invest in a WAHl Kennel Pro, I bought two Andis clippers, both gave out after trimming faux fur for a few min. Also Make sure to keep your Clippers oiled and cleaned after using.
I recommend trim the Faux fur first before cutting out the pattern, so if you do cut too deep you can always make a new piece to replace it before sewing your plush together. Make sure to trim with the fur pile not against it, or you will just cut all the fur off, you want to trim it not make it bald.
Keep in mind being a plush artist gets very pricey, with Faux fur some fur colors are rare and you will some

[Bullet; Blue]It's time to talk about AzureHowl people C: I have many plans for the future, and I would like to talk about them with you guys So lets get started!!!
1.I am planning to write down the scrips for the coming episodes a lot earlier, once I finish it I will even send out the lines of the characters to the voice actors, why ? I often have to wait on certain individuals for a very long time, if I would have all the lines ready from future episodes, I would have an easier time planning, not only that the fear of losing a voice actor is often big, by giving the lines all beforehand, I can in a way guarantee myself that the same voice actor is speaking for the character for at least a bit.

Original Species 'Copying' RantIf you don't agree with what I say below, feel free to disagree, but posting negative/bashing comments won't get you anywhere.Original Species 'Copying' Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
LETS TALK ABOUT ORIGINAL SPECIES.
I love original species and I support their creative aspects and thinking 'outside of the box'. (not that wolves are bad at all, I just really love the creativity of creatures and things of that sort) But sometimes these types of things get a bit too serious.
Lets use Pollux's species: http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/123/d/7/pollux_sona_reference_sheet_2014_by_secretzl-d7g1302.png
Some species owners would see maybe someone else's character with the same head and flip out.
If one person can come up with it, why can't another? And it's not direct copying-you've got no evidence to back it up that they actually copied you. They could have thought of it just like you did.
Perhaps you could question the other person and ask what their inspiration was for their character and maybe work something out.

Mauzik dragons are a breed of dragon having a bone plate over the top half of their head and no arms. They come in different species and each has their own characteristics. All have a bone plate that grows on the top half of their head. This plate has horns on the top along the back and markings on the surface. Instead of eyes they have an indentation on each side of the plate where eyes normally would be. Inside this indentation are sensors that detect heat and sound. This is how they see. They have a long, slender, pointed tongue that they use to assist with eating as well as draw in scents from the air. They have glands in the roof of their mouth to detect these s

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

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

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

How to get feedback on dAWe all joined this site, more or less for this reason, to get feedback on our art. The whole point of submitting art online is for people to see it and hear what they think about it.How to get feedback on dA2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Now there are a lot of deviants out there who get little to no feedback and as a result ask the people who faved their art to comment or go to random people on dA and ask for them to look at their art or comment in the hopes that the person will be kind enough to return the favor.
A message to the people who do that, you're doing it all wrong.
Sure, if you ask 20 people who faved your drawing what they thought about it, you might get 1 or 2 answers, but in return, you'll be ignored by say 10 people and you'll annoy 8 people. I get these comments and i'm telling you, begging for feedback is not the way to go, if someone didn't comment when they fave, what makes you think forcing their hand is the right way to go?
A fav is a compliment, take it a it is. Not everyone has
