Confession. Im sorry.. well we areHello my fellow Ryceballs. Its been a while since I wrote another journal I do apologize, I have been busy lately with things. Well.. to be honest there has been some frictions.. with us. You might be confused by what I just said.. well ok let me begin by saying thank you to all the supporters over the years first, 6 to be exact! Ry-Spirit began his life on Deviant 6 years ago! Wow long time right?! And I think it is time that I share something with you guys. Just wanna be honest here.. There is no I in Ry-Spirit. But there is an 'Us'. Ry-Spirit.. Umm Ry.. He never existed.

6 years ago me and 4 talented friends decided to make an account on Deviantart and created a fictional artist by the name of Ry-Spirit. We all had our own individual Deviantart accounts but we weren't really getting a lot of pageviews and attention, mostly because we have our own lives and don't have all day to just sit down and draw. But we really wanted a page th
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

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

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 Story1 year 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
Wii U games Where U at?!The following is a rant about Nintendo and the videogame industry now days in general :'I Warning its a big wall of texts, Nintendo.. water u doing....Wii U games Where U at?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy! Difficulty level where did you go) but I might still one day go back to it and replay it from the beginning just for fun's sake, but then now what..? Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf
Lets talk about Mental IllnessHey guys. I wasn't gonna talk about this at all as I usually don't like to be too depressing or heavy with my journal entries, I see my role here on Deviantart as an artist and an escape for some who wants to just have a fun reading my stories and polls or just enjoy looking at some art, so I try to avoid heavier topics like MH 370 or the Gaza war and stuff, Im sure there are already many news about that and my input is probably not neccersary, sure these issues are serious but don't think its my role to talk about it. However, I also think its important to bring awareness to a recent news because it MAY be affecting you directly right now, I am of course talking about the death of Robin Williams, yes like many of you, I was also pretty sad about the loss of Robin Williams, if you don't know who he was then you might be like 'I don't get why anyone is sad about the death of an actor' but trust me Im sure like many people who grew up watching his movies, you feel a certain bond with thiLets talk about Mental Illness9 months ago in Personal More Like This

PS4 vs Xbox One who wins?If you like videogames like me, chances are you have been aware of what's happening in E3. Everyone's talking about it now. Since a few weeks ago with the whole TV TV TV TV TV TV TV SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS Xbox conference I have been pretty unhappy with things that are going on with Microsoft. You can't play used games, you need to log in to your internet at least once a day to play games, and it feels like you are actually RENTING a game rather than owning it if you know what I mean. OK then at E3 today they announce the price for the Xbox One.. wait for it. $499 USD. Mmmmk alright, I kinda expected it to be expensive.. but here's the part that surprised EVERYBODY, it costs 429 Pounds and 499 Euros. Wait a minute what? So I quickly pulled out my little pink calculator and found out that for the UK thats equivalent of $666 USD (Interesting its also the number for Satan) and 662 USD for the Europeans. Yo WHAT THE HELL? Why do the people at europe hPS4 vs Xbox One who wins?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A wise man by the name of John Rambo once told us that we should 'Stay ballsy'. We should not let our fear overtake us, we should dive head in into obstacles and fight the demons without fear and without worries. Well I have taken that approach and incorporated it into my drawing, believe it or not I have never been confident about my artworks, even if it is something I spent 24 hours on I still have doubt whether its good enough to show or not, especially when it is for work and I know I am being judged on.. thats why it always takes so long for me to finish an art piece because I keep looking at it and try to fix stuff that probably no one would ever notic

Sweaty Pamyu PamyuHiya my people. So those of you who follows my Facebook would know that I attended a Kyary Pamyu Pamyu concert about 3 weeks ago! I wasn't planning to go initially(As I didn't have anyone to go with and didn't wanna become a third wheel to any friends group that are already going (All by Ryself... dont wanna be (Whoa a triple bracket))). So I didn't buy a ticket.. I was just gonna let that slip my mind. Well I lied, on the day of the concert, I put my Kyary concert DVD on TV and watched that instead TvT' Then... on the day of the concert I got a message from nabari telling me theres a free ticket as a friend's boyfriend couldn't go so there's a spare ticket and asked if I wanna go. My mind went blank, my jaws dropped all the way down to the basement. My eyes widened bigger than an 80s anime character. I EXPLODED.

Back from Brisnova, Adelaidenova, PurpleKecleonovaSorry this is a bit late, but I have a report to give. On my trip at Brisbane and Adelaide Supanova. It was a good 2 weeks, met lots of people and ate lots of delicious food and just a very good time. Oh also the title is misleading I know, I only attended 2 cons. PurpleKecleonova is not a con, but she might as well be one cos she's so awesome. And yes it was lovely meeting purplekecleon in person, she gave me one of the best suggestion of the year ever, increase my price :I and so I did, cos when a Pokemon Goddess tells you to do something, you do it. And that has been the best decision I made. It was also good to see my Bulba friends again, owner of Bulbapedia Liam Pomfret and his lovely wife and a good friend of mine alexandrasalas. Also saw Mamath again, shes the one who suggested I get a Wacom Cintiq, which I did and yes it did help with my drawing speed.

Went Undercover as a Student at a UniversitySorry for lack of updates, I have been away for a bit. But now I am back to tell more stories and upload more art. Anyway. Sometimes Ry can be a troll (Just sometimes). And I did exactly that last week actually. I pulled off a 21 Jump Street. Right, so I was in Melbourne for a convention and I also stayed longer for a few days to hang out with friends. The night before convention, my friend Alice (Who is a core member of the Japan Club) invited me to visit her University at RMIT for a Japanese movie night as part of her Japan Club's activity. At first I was a bit unsure whether I should go or not since I am not a member of the club or the Uni. But I do like to watch Japanese movies, so I went! :iconmingplz:Went Undercover as a Student at a University1 year ago in Personal More Like This

The Millennium Bug Comic IntroductionSo. Around when I was at the age of 12. Me and my high school friends got together and wrote one of the best true story ever told in mankind history. We decided that little Ry should be the artist for turning this amazing story into a 6 book comic. It is the story of the Millennium Bug. For those who didn't know (Or weren't born). People were panicking over this thing called the Millennium Bug, apparently in the year 2000 the computers would crash because they can't handle the numbers going from 1999 to 2000, and the stock market would collapse and planes would crash and stuff, all hell would break loose apparently, some people were actually legitimately terrified over this. But of course that never happened... coincidence? Nope. It was me and my friends who literally went into the computer to stop these evil 'bugs' from destroying the world. We saved your butts!

Death of a ConventionKinda sad day actually. But last saturday I attended a funeral, a funeral of a convention called Animania. I have talked about Animania before in my previous journals, the last few ones weren't very positive, I called it Emptimania and made jokes about the dying con, well no more jokes can be made anymore, because Animania is no more.Death of a Convention1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Animania was my first ever convention I ever attended, my ex brought me there and opened my eyes to a whole new world I never knew existed. I cosplayed as L from Deathnote and got lots of people taking photos of me, that felt weird... (but i liked it //shot). Back then Animania was also the big deal, it had a great location, great guests, interesting panels, and most importantly it had LOTS of people going. Then (From what I heard), the organisers got greedy and started doing things for profit which led to the downfall of the convent
