Difference between selling Art and selling MeatGreetings Ryceballs. Today I am gonna be talking about the differences between selling art and selling meat.Difference between selling Art and selling Meat3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is absolutely fascinating how different the two can be! :iconyoudontsayplz: ... Well first of all, an artist likes their work to be appreciated and let the audience see for themselves whether they want to buy their artwork or not. While a butcher (ESPECIALLY ASIAN ONES LIKE THE ONE IN THE ARTWORK) only cares about selling the meat and making the profit, they have no sentimental feelings towards what they are selling, because if they do then there won't be any meat to sell right? One of the main rule of a butcher is to have no emotional attachment towards the animals, because they know sooner or later the animal needs to be chopped up. Well what about artists? Well they put their blood, sweat and tears into their artwork to make it as pretty as possible, all in hopes that the audiences would enjoy their art as much as the artist enjoy making them. NOW here's the thing thoug

Edd Gould passed away.Edd Gould, an internet animator responsible for many shorts you've probably seen on youtube, passed away on March 25th. For a long time he had been battling cancer, and unfortunately the cancer ultimately won. Please take a moment and look through his collection of videos and leave comments wishing "Edd's World" the best in going forward without him. http://www.youtube.com/user/eddsworld/videosEdd Gould passed away.4 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

FAN ART FRIDAY: Wocka! Wocka!
The Muppets are celebrating their 60th birthday this year!
Jim Henson created the group of puppets back in 1955 for his first TV show, called “Sam and Friends.” Henson said the term Muppet had emerged from a combination of “marionette” and “puppet.” Henson’s wildly imagined collection of characters has been delighting children and adults with their absurd antics and comedic sketches ever since.

Deviantart is like the mother who gave birth to me. She gave me life as an artist, she allowed me to showcase my skills and creativity and even to express my ideas. Without Deviantart, there would be no Ry-Spirit!
Deviantart also allowed me to make new friends! Some of my closest friends I made are through here on this very website. And no they are not the three people in the image above, but those guys looks fun, contact me if you are one of the three people in the picture. Thanks
Deviantart has helped me grow as an artist and as a person too! Through positive feedback and compliments from the nice community!
Deviantart is like a home to me. This is the website I visit the most, I have made the most friends here, I also follow many other talented artists here who has inspired me. DA is my home!

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

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 Illness1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I has returned from my Melb and NZ trip for Armageddon 2013, I might as well write it in one journal. Lots to talk about, lots of photos to show, lots of love going on. So yes lets start with Melbourne, I was there for a couple of days. On Friday I met up with my friend Sam and had the spiciest Korean Dinner ever, it actually gave me a bit of tummy problem that night, but it was worth it. It tasted very good! We shared our love for movies, me and her can talk about movies for a very long time, mostly about how hot Benedict Cumberbatch is. On Saturday I sold things, Chancake also bought me food to keep me from starving, at night I dined with Sam and her friend Hazel at a ramen place. Sunday very similar, but at night I dined at another ramen place with the Zenki boys. I stayed an extra day on Monday to chill, and chill I did. On my way back to Sydney, in Melb airport I saw a familiar face but couldnt put my finger on who it was.. he look
