Apologies for 3DS Swapnote/Letterbox SuspensionAs you may know, a few days ago Nintendo suspended 3DS's swapnote/letterbox (Depending on which country your from) system, due to users exchanging offensive material. What Letterbox is? its a software that allows you to write letters or draw doodles or attach pictures and send it to your friends. Its a great little fun software, I always liked Letterbox, I use it a lot to draw funny pictures of pikachu and top hats to friends. And... also for.. umm...... *deep breath 1 2 3* Ok. Ahhem, I am guilty of exchanging adult material to my 3DS buddy, :iconohgodwhyplz: and no Im not talking about naked photos of myself or anything like that ok! But of some sexy pics I found on the net... in 3D. Its mostly for laughs. its just interesting to see those 'pictures' in 3D. Also funny that we are using an innocent child friendly console toy for this purpose. SO JUST FOR FUN, me and my friend sent the sexy pics we found on the net to each other. THEN a day later, we get the news that Swapnote/LetterboxApologies for 3DS Swapnote/Letterbox Suspension2 years ago in Personal More Like This
FML. The Super Mario Galaxy StoryYou guys like story yeah? Let uncle Ry tell you a story, there's a lesson to learn here kids. Pay attention. I wanna talk about this now because last week was my birthday and it reminded me of this story, its related to a birthday gift. The gift was Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. This story happened a few years ago.FML. The Super Mario Galaxy Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out
PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style Basic notions for drawing heads and facesPE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome back everyone! Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning!
Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial

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

CAERDWYN IS AMAZING!!:iconcaerdwyn:CAERDWYN IS AMAZING!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Probably the rarest and most noble of all human traits.
A characteristic rarely seen in every day encounters, and yet a trait that so many in this amazing community seem to exibit naturally.
One such individual is Caerdwyn.
A Silicon Valley Engineer, roommate of the infamous DustyKatt, and the son of a decorated Navy Pilot; Caerdwyn has given of his time, money, and resources to so many in our community without ever asking for anything in return.
He is the true element of generosity, the embodiment of his father's heroism, and the man I would nominate to be the Ambassador of this great fandom were we ever to elect one!
You have done so much for me and for so many others...
I don't know how to repay you, but rest assured I will think of something!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!
Had a dream that I killed someoneHad a very odd and disturbing dream last night, all the dreams interpreters out there please hear me out. I can't exactly remember how the dream started, but thats what a dream is apparently, you don't exactly remember how you got there. Thanks Leo! Anyway it started with an asian friend of mine being tied up and stuffed in a cotton bag, I do not know why it was this friend... I have no hatred towards her and she was a pretty cool person, we haven't really spoken for the past 2 years but, she's very small in size though.. like almost midget size, perfect for being stuffed into a cotton bag maybe thats why it was her. I ain't gonna say who she is incase she reads this and gets freaked out. So yeah I saw my friend in the bag and for some reason I wanted to keep her there, I even went to the trouble of finding more bags to cover her up so she couldn't get out... She was making a lot of noises so I got scared and stuffed her inside my cupboard. I left her in there for a couple of hours andHad a dream that I killed someone3 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.

Hi guys! How is your summer (or winter?) vacation so far? (I assume that it's almost over in the States, am I right?)
My brief surge of motivation to draw is unfortunately OVER so I was looking through some drawings, trying to get my motivation back up (I have some things that I've been delaying and I really HAVE TO finish), and somehow ended up remembering how WAY BACK when I made a journal about reaching 20 watchers (I think it might have been the end of May or something?), I mentioned that I would start things like contests to show my appreciation. Well, now that I have almost 70 watchers (wow!! ), it's about time I do something, isn't it?! So, for all my watchers (non watchers can join too ) I propose this contest:
Here is a list of names (sorry if they're dumb ... that's why I put an option where you get to pick a name):

A little message concerning the Typhoon DisasterTyphoon Haiyan in the Philippines was a disaster. But we are very fortunate that countries all over the world have helped us with their generous aid and donations, we received so much help more than we expected. As a fellow citizen of my country I wish to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart your generosity.A little message concerning the Typhoon Disaster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And now a word to the President of the Phillippines, the Mayor of Tacloban city and all the govt' officials handling the situation. You are all INCOMPETENT. For the past week you've barely done anything to help the victims, not even something as simple as delivering the relief goods. I even heard cases where you wanted to tax these relief goods. Bullshit. You are all an embarrassment to your people and your country. Shame on you. Go to Hell.
Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...Creating a Beautiful Fractal Image2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...and the ones here at Deviant Art are no exception! The images are as diverse as each person who creates it. I am a lay-person on the subject when it comes to explaining the art itself. Simply put...fractals are based on Mathematical Equations. The how and the why of this explanation still eludes me, but the beauty of the images keep my creating them. For information about the underlying mathematics check this Wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractals

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible.
Pretty simple, eh? Basically as you are reading this you are "reading typography". What I will refer to in this article is digital artistic typography, though. This is not the everday typography you see on street signs, books or on websites.
It can be anything! Which is amazing and scary at the same time
