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

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

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
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.

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
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.

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!

But we really wanted a page th

You can see how an Ad would look in the "Get Featured" section in my page.
What are the benefits to put an Ad?
You'll get more traffic (inflow of visitors)*You'll get more people to purchase your products (if you have any)*You can gain exposure more quicklyYou can build a base of your profile by meeting new people
1) I do not guarantee to increase the traffic of your profile or increase in your sales. It solely depends on deviants to like your Ad.
2) I hold all rights to remove any Ad at any point in time. Equivalent points for the remaining Ad period shall be refunded.
Would it be free to put an Ad in my page?
Unfortunately, no. It is because of the following reasons:
I am providing you with an opportunity to get more exposureI am providing you a space in my page (which I could have used for my own use otherwise)

ALWAYS SIGN YOUR WORK and other stuffHi folks. I was gonna make this journal sooner or later, but there's not a more appropriate time than NOW, when my 'Sorry we're closed' http://ry-spirit.deviantart.com/art/Sorry-we-re-CLOSED-162673296 artwork got posted on 9gag right http://m.9gag.com/gag/6281912 ! Not only did the person not credit the artist or link it to my page or whatever, they even changed the title of this artwork to 'S**t Happens'. Come on man... WHAT ALSO sucks is that back then I had a different logo, its like that box with a thunder symbol on it, it doesn't have my username on it either... so people could just look at that picture and have no idea who drew it. I mean this artwork is OLD.. like more than 2 years old.. so I was still new to how the internet works when it comes to sharing. So now this 9gag post gets like 16k of likes and over 500k of views and I don't get a single credit. *Flips a table*.

Above is a visual representation of what I will look like if I was born a girl. The answer is I would be a hot big boob sexy Asian chick. How did this thought came about? It started when my friend omuuu asked me today. "What do you think of your appearance?", and I was like "i think im decent enough to not scare people away, and look quite handsome from some angles and lighting". Then she asked "if you were the opposite gender, would you have changed in either aspect?" and that got me thinking. I actually stumble upon this thought a few times before, and in all scenario I always end up a slut. Let me explain.
Did you know that if you are a girl, you get bonus face points? Like if you are born an ugly guy, you remain an ugly guy. However if you were born an ugly girl, you are still a girl and pe

Call of Jury DutySo last Friday I had to go to court. DONT WORRY I didn't murder anybody not yet. It was for jury duty, and it was my first time ever doing it. Pretty much they pick someone at random from the mega list of boring ordinary permanent residents in Australia for a potential position in the juror's panel. The jurors are the people who gets to decide whether they think the offender is guilty or not guilty. Like in the movies.. only its very real. A person's life depends on our vote.Call of Jury Duty2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It IS a hassle if you got picked for Jury Duty, it is also illegal not to go without a good reason, you can't just say you have work. You have to have like a really special reason, like if you are going overseas or really sick or has some childhood trauma that will affect your decisions kinda thing (With evidence of course). To be honest I don't think anybody wanted to be there. You do get paid a reasonable fee for being there however, but its still a pain in the bum bum to travel to a place you are not familiar w
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 Rysolation1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol.

Additional information for those who likes to read.
All A3 size prints are in 200 gsm matte paper. All A2 or A1 prints are in 180 GSM bond paper. If there's an artwork you have seen before but hard to find on my gallery cos I got too many artworks, here's a tip for ya, just google it up. If its a Zelda artwork then just type in 'Zelda Ry-Spirit' then look at the google images and see if its there, google is your friend! Or even just type in Ry-Spirit in google to see what images comes up, usually the most popular ones pop up first anyway. please write your address down properly, make sure the address is structured properly so I don't get the states and street names and stuff mixed up, cos I am not from your country and don't know how your country's Adress structure works... so yeah just beware of things like that.
