How I've Changed After 1 Yr On YouTube

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 29, 2016, 8:17 AM



:happybounce: Hey There Everyone!



So after just one year of being on Twitch/YouTube, it's interesting to see how things have changed! I'm not just talking about artwork, overlays, etc. I'm talking about me. My delivery, tone of voice, how I frame the camera.  This became pretty obvious with my recent upload.  I decided to upload one of my first video's I ever recorded. Check out just the first minute...

Most Recent: OXENFREE


One of my First Videos: Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments



Just interesting what one year can bring! :wow: I want to thank everyone here on Deviant Art. I know I've improved as an artist, even as a person, thanks to all of your critiques and advice!  What about you guys? How have you  improved over the last year?

Working Hard! Walking Dead, Twitch, YT

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 20, 2016, 12:59 PM



:phew: As an artist I don't think I have ever been more busy!



Working hard at Telltale on Walking Dead Michonne, working hard on Twitch as we grow our charity outreach, and working hard on YouTube as we continue to release great content!

:highfive: I hope this stuff are things you're interested in!  Like any artist, you hope the work you put out is stuff people will want to watch/experience.  That's one reason I've had a DA page as long as I've had. As always, any feedback is always wanted. Love you guys and I hope life is going great for all of you!

JOIN ME TONIGHT - That Dragon, Cancer

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 15, 2016, 3:16 PM



Even if you're not a gamer you're going to want to join me tonight. I'll be playing a few games, but the first one is something impacting and special.


Named That Dragon, Cancer, it's a game that was created from a place of need. When I say that, I mean one that is created because emotionally, you're compelled.  We all have worked on something because we needed to.  Past inspiration, I'm talking about that emotional impact. Whether something made you incredibly happy, or put you in the hardest place you've ever been in your life.  We have all created something because it was the only way to work through something.

"That Dragon, Cancer" was created by a father who lost his 4 year old child to cancer.  I don't expect this to be a "happy" game based off of that premise.  I myself have been impacted by cancer, due to love ones having to face this dragon.  Past the story behind the game, I've kept myself relatively in the dark.  So we'll see together what happens.


It's going to be an emotional night and I hope you'll join me

Back From Vacation: GAMES!!!

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 13, 2016, 12:59 PM



:w00t: Just got back from vacation! 3 glorious weeks in Oregon spending time with family.  Other than that, my other focus has been getting everything updated/working for Twitch and YouTube.

For YouTube we switched to Mon-Fri release dates.  We're currently focused mainly on the game aspect of the channel. Once we get everything edited and running, we'll start uploading the food videos! (I can't wait)

It's been a lot of hard work. :phew: Would really appreciate any help from people spreading the word about our humble channel.  There's a reason you always hear people on YouTube say, "like, comment, and subscribe." It really helps the channel to grow and gain more public exposure through YouTube's algorithms.  So all help is GREATLY appreciated!


I hope you all had some great vacation time!
Would love to hear if you guys did anything fun!

The Kickoff Of Food/Game YouTube Channel!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 1, 2015, 9:28 AM



This week marks the beginning of something awesome! :excited: 


As some of you may know, during my free time I've been hard at work trying to get my YouTube channel up off the ground.  Creating content, artwork, a marketing base, social networking.  But there's one important thing I didn't have time for, or at least, time to do on a consistent basis: Video editing.  Which, last I checked, is pretty important.

It's funny how life works.  After a few years of looking for a video editor, a video editor found me.  Enter Christian.  A hilarious dude that lives up in Washington who popped into my Twitch stream during my Halloween game night.  He watched me play Slender Man, watched me scream my head off, and proceeded to make a hilarious video clip of it.

The second I saw the video he created I knew I found my video editor.  After a few weeks of talking and getting a workflow laid out, I can proudly say Playing With Fire TV is now up and running! :la:

Here's our first two series we're kicking our channel off with!
Fallout 4:

Layers Of Fear:


Schedule:
TheOnlyRyann - 7 days a week, 1 video a day, 10AM PST
Cooked Well - Every Monday, 1 video, 12PM PST


:happy-wave: And go give Christian a follow on Twitter!
Give him a high-five for being awesome!
ChristianWorsey


Thanks for all your love and support my friends!
It's truly amazing to see what can happen when you don't give up
and trust in those around you!

OMG, I Just Arted All Over The Place!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 19, 2015, 12:53 PM



There's new artwork from me here on DeviantArt, WHUUUUUT!? :ohnoes:



I know it seems I journal more than I create artwork.  Hopefully it's understandable, as I tend to put everything I have into work at Telltale.  So while I'm being artistic day-in and day-out, it's rare I ever work on anything I can post on here.

But here it is!  Huge fan of the Fallout series, so I took a lunch break to create this Postcard.
I hope you like it!


Yeah, I've been having fun with this game :teehee:

I’ve been a fan of Gearbox’s Borderlands ever since the first game came out


I can’t tell you how many hours I played; playing with friends, trying to get the best loot, get every achievement.  Fast forward a few years later, I’m working at Telltale Games, and I’m told we’ll have Borderlands in Poker Night 2.


I marched into Nick Herman’s office (one of our Directors) and half begged/demanded I be put in charge of everything Borderlands.  Right after Christmas, beginning of 2013, I get to work on Claptrap and everything Borderlands in the game.  Getting to work with Bombastic cameras, requesting sad “heyo’s” for Steve, creating a “sad cinematic moment” when Steve has to knock out Claptrap, even making an 8 minute idle of Claptrap puttering around the poker space when he’s no longer playing. :la: It was a passion project and I dare not say how many hours I put in over the course of 3 months. Frankly it doesn’t matter, I was having waaaay too much fun to care!

Poker Night 2: Team Fortress 2 Borderlands Spy by IMAGINeye

Afterwards, I thought that was it.  Game done. I got a chance to be a bit of a fanboy while working, onto the next awesome project!  A few months pass, and during a company stand-up meeting, it’s mentioned we’ll be creating a game from the Borderlands universe with Gearbox. Upon hearing the news, I of course was smiling from ear-to-ear.  But what I’ll never forget was some of my fellow co-workers smiling and turning to look at my reaction.  There was never a question in anyone’s mind if I was going to work on this project or not.

In January of 2014 I got to work in a world that allows us to go over-the-top with awesome cameras, action, humor, you name it!  Working as a cinematic artist we’re constantly having to adapt and change our styles depending on the project we’re on. Borderlands cinematically is very different than anything else we’ve worked on in the 4+ years I’ve been here. I absolutely loved it! This was something different, and it was amazing to see how the first episode took shape and became the building blocks for the episodes that followed.

Almost 2 years later, the last episode of Tales From The Borderlands is coming out.  I’m a crazy mix of emotions; happy, excited, sad.  It’s been a roller-coaster of hard work, passion, time, and study.  It was humbling and my honor to work on this project.  I got a chance to meet so many fellow fans, sit in on an 800+ person live playthrough of one of our episodes, be Telltale’s walking Borderlands encyclopedia of questionable knowledge, meet and talk with Gearbox’s Chief Creative Champion Mikey Neumann (who also voiced Scooter).  There’s just SO MUCH working on this series has gifted me, I’m blown away.

Thank you to the fans. The amazing people who played, who cosplayed, all the awesome artwork. Your passion and love is what pushed us forward, helped us make the series even better!  Also thank you to my co-workers, my friends. You put up with my passion, a 6’5 dude jumping around from giddiness couldn’t have been an easy thing to put up with at times!  It was amazing to craft so many memorable scenes with all of you; as ideas begat ideas, that led to moments that made these episodes truly unique!


As an artist, you'll sometimes get to work on things that you know will standout for you in your career.  Working on Tales From The Borderlands will always be that one for me, and will always hold a special place in my heart.

Being Me Online And Cheeky TwitchCon

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 22, 2015, 12:59 PM



:battleShip:  It's funny, when I was trying to come up with my handle for gaming on Twitch/YouTube I already went through a few ideas.  Ones that I had actually used at one time or another.


When I first jumped on YouTube I was a bit leery of letting people know who I am.  Truth be told, working in the video game industry can be a bit weird with outside interests in the same area.  So I tried Blurrification and Spawn Point Podcast.  Both I thought were interesting, but more about not being me, then well, being something tied to me.

So when I started on Twitch, I wanted to start anew, but with something that would be tied to me for as long as I'm a gaming personality.  That's when I came up with "TheOnlyRyann." Having two "N"'s in my name has always made me easy to find on Google, it has separated me from other Ryan's at work or school, oddly enough was a point of being teased about when I was younger, all over just an extra "N."  We all want to feel unique, that there is only one of us.

The funny thing is, I still get crap from people about the name :D When I jump on chat in Twitch, I'll get someone named GasOil9000 saying, "My name is Ryan too!  So you aren't the only one!!!"  (most think the extra "N" is either some form of L337 speak or a typo)  So now I'm just getting cheeky about it as I'm going to TwitchCon.

Here's the sticker I'm making:


Anyone else have any tongue-in-cheek suggestions for my online handle? :evillaugh:
Totally down to hear them!

Video Games. My Profession, My Hobby

It's amazing how much my life revolves around this medium O.o
My profession, my hobbies, how I try to help people, it's something I wanted since I was 8, and I'm thankful this is something I get to do every single day.  So off of that, here's some updates!

I can't go into detail (you guys understand) but I've been hard at work on Tales From The Borderlands!  I just can't wait until you get to play the next episode!  I'll have more to talk about once that fateful day comes! OMG! I can't contain my excitement!

A side hobby that I'm trying to grow into a serious channel.  Food and video games, what's not to love?!  I'll admit, with my busy schedule, it's pretty hard.  Made all the harder as I don't have a computer at home to work from.  If I could find a talented video editor to be my partner, I think that would be the last piece of the puzzle to getting this channel up off the ground.  Either way, I'm dedicated to getting a schedule down to have consistent content!

I know I don't get a chance to talk to everyone all the time due to my busy schedule, and for that I apologize.  Hopefully you can see from above, that I've been trying to put my time to good use.  but I do miss you guys and I hope all is wonderful in your life!  Drop me a line in the comments below!

So as I've been searching for a video editing partner for our YouTube show, it doesn't mean we've stopped cooking! To that end, we decided to try something a tad bit different. Doing a quick style cooking show through Vine.  We're still working out some kinks here and there, and sadly I can't post the videos directly into my Deviant Art journal.  But the links below will lead you through a new recipe!

Bullet; Red CHARITY GAMING EVENT Bullet; Red 
Sept. 12th 10am - Sept. 13th 10am

Hosted by Ryann Weller & Tasi Alabastro

I'm helping to create a charity gaming group through Extra Life!  We're looking for gamers and non-gamers alike to join our group.  If you're a gamer, we need your help to create content, to stream during the charity event.  If you're a non-gamer, we need your help getting donations, pledges, drumming up support for the big day!

WHAT IS EXTRA LIFE ABOUT?
Extra Life is about raising money for local hospitals through gaming!  How does it work?  Well, people can donate money as usual.  Just a flat sum, here ya go, etc.  But where Extra life really shines, is its gaming events.  There will be events where we all game for a full 24 hours (or we can break it up into a smaller 12 hours).  People will pledge an amount for every hour you play.  So if they pledged $1 dollar for every hour, and you game for the full 24 hours, then that's $24 dollars you just raised!

The Extra Life Story:


I love the DA community, its giving heart, it's something I've seen first hand.  Years ago together we brought smiles to kids at CHOC hospital through our art, now I want to take it a different route.  To help others, hospitals, kids, through our love of games!

NOT A GAMER/STREAMER? NOT A PROBLEM!


"Wait Ryann, I'm not interested in gaming," you say? :shakefist:
Even if you don't want to game, you can help in other ways!  Spreading the word both locally and digitally, donating to the event, even watching us game (as views help the event gain more recognition).
Another way is by creating artwork!  Any artwork created for our group, the gaming event, etc; I'll post to our Twitter account, showcase during game time, even send to the hospitals we're supporting!
       Bullet; White We're currently looking for a graphic designer to create a t-shirt.
       These will be worn by our streamers for that day.
       Bullet; Blue Needing UI overlays for our PC Twitch streamers
