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
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
You may need to right click and view the image to see the whole thing. Now what does it mean? I will tell you. It stands for "Sad because no money therefore no premium membership and seems like Im not considered an artist argh *swears*.. Sigh.. oh well.. I have an idea, look I'll continue to

The Musicality of WordsWant to be a lyric writer?The Musicality of Words9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Want to be a poet?
Heck, want to write some words on a page?
In that case, it is very important to note that words have an innate musicality. It may not always be visible, but it’s there, it’s important, and it can help a great deal when you want to make a sentence sound just right.
(Side note: this workshop uses some music terminology. If you’re unsure about any of these words, there are many available sources on the Internet that will help out)
Taking Words Into Account
Everyone you ever speak to will say things in different ways. Some people will pronounce tomato ‘to-mah-to’ where others may pronounce it ‘to-may-to’. The whole ‘to-may-to, to-mah-to’ bit may be an old joke by now, but believe it or not these subtle differences in pronunciation can have a significant affect on the sound of the words themselves.
So what does that have to do with writing? You can

Art Merchandise 101: What is it?
As artists, we're mostly all familiar with designing our works with the thought of it one day being displayed in print or poster format. So what can we do if we have bigger and brighter dreams for our works than them simply being limited to a plastic frame hanging above a desk? Art merchandising - turning designs into products other than prints - can be the next step for the artist looking to expand their design horizons and make some money at the same time. Creating pieces for products other than prints can be artistically challenging as well as personally profitable; many deviants have found monetary gain as well as artistic achievement through doing so. Thanks to a plethora of platforms including DeviantArt, getting started in turning your personal works into cool products can be relatively easy and straightforward. Regardless of whether you're a professional artist, an up-and-comer looking for
Buy It!I was watching a basketball game on television and during a commercial break, there he was! Starkist Charlie. I said, "Oh jeez, not this knob again." My son, home from college on break, said, "Whaaaat.....??"Buy It!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Charlie was before my son's time, and that led me to wax rhapsodic about how some of the most successful ad campaigns of the 1970's played upon the worst aspects of human nature. Worse, most were aimed at children. When I had finished foaming at the mouth about it all, my son advised me to write it down. Rgr that.
Starkist Charlie, the bespectacled, beret-wearing tuna whose greatest desire, and seemingly only goal in life, was to be murdered, hacked up, canned, consumed, and shat out by humans. Why? Merely to prove he was as good as the other tuna who got murdered, hacked, canned, eaten, and shat. But he didn't measure up to Starkist standards. I'm sure they suspected mercury

Alright, kiddies: Listen up!So by now I'm sure a lot of us are aware of Congress' attempt to pass a revised version of the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) act. That one that flipped the entire internet upside down, last year? (I think it was last year. It's been going on for...two years now, I think.) Anyway, I stumbled on it through a couple dA journals that were vastly inaccurate; frightened at first I decided to further research and that's how I discovered the inaccuracies. I've checked multiple websites and though I can't say for sure, the panic on deviantart is absolutely unwarrented.Alright, kiddies: Listen up!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
SO LISTEN UP. THIS IS WHAT THE NEW SOPA TARGETS:
This new SOPA gets straight to the point: its intent is to go after anyone streaming (or covering) copyrighted video or audio and charge them for committing felony. This means if you upload movies on youtube, make music videos with your favorite films/songs,

NOOB vs NEWBNoob vs Newb (THE DIFFERENCE)NOOB vs NEWB2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Noob is a person who is new or inexperience commonly seen in online games that really sucks big time however they refuses to learn or listen and usually annoying and stupid. Noobs has no hope in getting better at games nor accept the fact they suck ass at it. Noobs tend to be violent, racist, annoying, retarded, rage quitter, etc.
Newb is a person who is new or inexperience commonly seen in online games that really sucks at first but has a huge potential to improve and be skilled usually mature and polite. Newbs studies the games and advance tactics and use it later on as they gain experience. Newbs tend to be friendly, ethical, fair game, sports, active learner, etc.

Why Won't Artists Accept Rev Share or Royalties?!Art in the Professions WeekWhy Won't Artists Accept Rev Share or Royalties?!9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The straight-forward answer is: they will, under the right circumstances.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s talk about you, the developer, first.
Imagine you’re walking down the street, you’ve just received your paycheck of the week, and you’re going down to the bank to pay a couple of bills.
Just as you’re rounding the corner, someone you’ve never seen before stops you and says:
“Hey, so, I’m planning to start this detox juice store- this place just became available for renting and it’s a steal. I love juice and fruits, and me and my friends subscribe to Diet Now magazine so we know a lot about nutrition. Also, when we had a lemonade stand back in elementary school, we sold like 300 lemonades in a week. So, here’s the plan: you give me your paycheck and your next four paychecks, and then when our store becomes super famous, you’ll be rich.
