fist-bunp asked: okay so I've always been envious of artwork that I find on tumblr and around the web. for a long time now I've really wanted a tablet so I could improve my own artistic talent on a digital medium, but only recently have I found steady income. is there any tablet and/or tools in particular that you would recommend? preferably still on the cheap side.
i use a 6x8” wacom intuos3 — it’s old by now, but still works well — but i’ve known a lot of artists over the years who did just fine with wacom graphires (wacom’s current equivalent is the bamboo.) i’ve also heard good things about monoprice’s tablets, which are definitely cheap! so if you’re on a tight budget, a bamboo or monoprice might be good for you :] the size you get depends on how much you can spend, how you like to draw (drawing small details from the wrist = you can make do with a smaller tablet; drawing with larger gestures from the shoulder or elbow = bigger tablet) and how much desk space you have
asieybarbie asked: hi Rose! :) hope you've been well, I was wondering if you were currently open for commissions at the moment? I would love to commission you again soon! <3
hey! i’ve been alright, i hope you have too :)
sadly i’m not open for commissions right now, nor am i sure when i will be again…i know that’s totally not helpful at all, i wish i could give more info lol :( ah, freelancing…
piperhorns asked: Hi Bara! I know you're super busy with work, but I've been following your art for a long time, and I know how much you loved Ragnarok! And I was wondering if you've tried RO 2 yet, and wanted to know what you thought of it! :)
ah! i’ve tried it a little — i have a uhh…level 31? rogue on it atm
i’m not really in love with it though :( it’s a cute game, but it feels…very generic to me, and it lacks a lot of RO1’s charm. maybe my judgements are premature since i haven’t reached any of the endgame stuff yet or tried a lot of classes…and there are things about it i appreciate — i like that it’s much friendlier to new players than RO1 was, the graphics are quite pretty, the game actually gives a shit about professions (cooking included! yeah!!) it’s nice to see my characters in 3D with voices (though i wish there were more customization options) and i love that they worked in a lot of stuff from the manhwa. but man…the music is just about the blandest i’ve ever heard, i miss the old look of RO1’s cities and maps, RO1’s social aspect seems to be gone (ugh that public chat!) and battle just feels kind of slow and boring, though that may be an unavoidable thing in 3D games, and maybe not having to spam hundreds of potions per second is for the best anyway lol. i don’t really appreciate how limited some things are unless you buy cash stuff, but again…that’s just how it is these days, i guess. i won’t go into the lack of optimization and awful targeting since RO1 definitely had its gameplay bugs, but…they don’t help. also, i know that saving the attractive armor for later is supposed to be an incentive to keep playing, but man i hate having an ugly, not-RO-looking character q_q and. CUTE HATS. WHY CAN’T I MAKE A MILLION USELESS CUTE HATS? come on that was the whole point of the first game!! buying chance items out of the cash shop for a shot at a semi-cute hat doesn’t count
i think gravity just doesn’t have a lot of creativity lately, it feels like they’re just making clones of popular games and slapping some RO textures on (RO2 = WoW, ragnarok odyssey = MH).. maybe it’s not their fault though, i know the original RO2 was going to be very different and most people haaaaated it so they redid it lol.
i’m more interested in hakkyu kim’s project R1, although i don’t even know if that’s still being worked on or what, i haven’t heard anything about it in a long time
tl;dr i’m an unappeasable old jerk (´д`)……..
dreamsthatimagine asked: may i just say how awesome you are!!! your art is out of this world, so cute with a touch of swirl in it and the photoshop is just impeccable!!! how do you do such awesome photoshoping, is there a tutorial for that?
thank you so much! sadly i don’t have any tutorials up right now, but you can check out my livestream page for some videos of how i work! i think most of them involve painter for the coloring, but one of these days i’ll try to do some more streams with photoshop coloring
