FAQ ME!

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 6, 2013, 2:01 AM





Hi Ryceballs, this is your king speaking, King Ry of House Spirit. You may stand. So yeah just a little FAQ I wanna put up since I have been getting some repeated questions lately. These are some very frequent questions that I get a lot, I hope I can answer them for ya. If you got any more questions please ask in comments, if it is a common one, I will update it to the FAQ as well. In the voice of Mario: HERE WE GOOOO!

What software do you use?


Photoshahp CS5, I have been using CS5 for quite a while now and the software has been kind to me, and also cos Im too cheap to upgrade to newer versions.
:iconsparklesplz::iconshameplz::iconsparklesplz:

What tablet do you use?


I alternate between a small Wacom Bamboo and a Cintiq. There are pros and cons for both of them, Bamboo is great for travelling with and drawing in bed while a Cintiq is a lot more work to set up but it makes drawing much faster because you are looking directly at the screen. Picking one would be like picking a favourite child out of the two. You should never let your kids know who you like better even if you do.

Are you a guy or a girl?


I has the penis

Where do you live?


Under a tree somewhere. Australia

How old are you?


TWEEENTY-ATE

Where did you learn and how long have you been drawing for?


I have been drawing since I was an ugly baby. It was always a hobby of mine, you can even see some of my old drawings here if you like
here. I did attend a few drawing classes here and there that my parents paid for me to go. I'm sure I learnt a few things there that helped me become the wannabe artist that I am today, I also went to Graphic Design college and Animation University after, I wouldn't say they taught me much in terms of drawing.. but it did teach me things that I still use today, like how to layout or how to make something pretty or how to portray your idea etc etc bla bla bla.

Do you draw for a living?


Yes, it didn't start off that way, but kinda turned into one didn't it?

Do you work for a company?


Yes, for Ry-Spirit. I am the company's leader, worker and janitor.

What is this Patreon thing?


Well I'm glad you asked! Its kinda like a donation thing I am doing, but pretty much if you donate more you get more rewards in return. I am giving a lot of exclusive stuff on my Patreon actually. Working my butt off to make sure my supporters gets the best treatment ever. So if you have a few extra bucks, please support me on my Patreon here: www.patreon.com/RySpirit

Some of your favourite Artists??


There are many many artists that I really like, many on Deviantart like Tomiokajiro and loish, but the ones who really influenced me a lot especially during my early years on DA would be my 3C, I call them the 3C because all three of them happen to have their names starting with C. theCHAMBA, Chancake and cuson. Im also blessed to know all 3 of them in person later on in life. Fantastic people.

What do you enjoy doing outside of drawing?


I love watching movies and TV series, as well as playing videogames! I am also a fan of watching pro wrestling. I also like to play a bit of Table Tennis, Badminton and Bowling. They are fun. I also like travelling, especially by myself to a foreign country checking out tourist attractions and finding out the history of the place, its like I'm on an adventure! Yeah thats pretty much my life.

It seems like you go to a lot of conventions selling your art, whats up with that?


Thats part of what I do as an artist! You just gotta travel to conventions to meet like minded people and put your work out there for the public to see and to buy! I travel around Australia and once in a while to other countries too. It can be tiring sometimes but its also fun meeting fans and friends from all over.

How long does it take you to draw an artwork?


Varies from piece to piece, comes down to amount of details to how often I change the artwork. I have a bad habit of making improvements to things that no one really pays attention to, small little details that no one notices.. BUT HEY thats my style yo. So yes a simple piece of artwork may take 2-3 hours, while something more complicated could take a total of 20-40 hours altogether. And no I don't draw 40 hours non stop, thats impossible.

What does your name Ry-Spirit mean?


Nothing. Well the name my parents given me is Ryan, then friends who likes Street Fighter started calling me Ryu, friends who like Pokemon started calling me Rychu, friends who likes animals called me Ryno. Many puns were thrown around. So Im like you know what? Lets just cut my name down to Ry to make everybody happy. The Spirit part just sounded good, wish there was an interesting story to it but there isn't. There you go, Ry-Spirit

What are the Ryceballs..?


WELL the Ryceballs would be the people who supports me. Its supposed to be like a pun on my name because Ry-Spirit sounds a bit like Rice-Spirit, so.. Ryceballs. I love the Ryceballs with all my heart, if its not because of them I probably wouldnt be here right now doing what I do. The Ryceballs are also very delicious.

I see sometimes you livestream! How often do you livestream and when can I watch?


I usually give around 1 or 2 seconds warning to the Ryceballs before livestreaming. Yes 1 or 2 seconds. BECAUSE I just livestream when I feel like it. Im sorry. So yes there's no schedule or planning or what so ever, I like to keep my livestream as unprofessional as possible.

You have a Kiriban set to 999,999,999?


Yeah cos I feel like giving something back to the community, if they are dedicated enough to actually refresh my page to get just the right number, that would be quite an achievement, thats just pure skills and talent right there, you should write that down in your resume as the Kiriban catcher. Anyway so I figured that I have to reward them in some way. Click here to find out what the rewards are

Hey, Ry! Didn't know you took Animation back when you were in school! Interesting to know. :D
Do you think that going into Graphic Design/Animation at school was worth it, or would you rather have spent that time learning on your own?

Then whats a penis? is it a disease of sort?
Reply
:iconmrsvolv:
MrsVolv Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2015  Professional General Artist
Yes, exactly! It's a common not contagious disease that makes your breasts vanish and generally changes your bones structure therefore the whole body shape...
But don't worry, it's not dangerous, about half of the humanity has it. :)

Here you have some more proper answer(With much less irony included)www.thefreedictionary.com/peni…
