klysein asked: I think I fell in love with your art and it's inspiring me to work more now e-e;;, it's absolutely perfect and I have a question when using your markers for color how do u keep that light shade that gives your sunglasses that look it's hard wrapping my mind on it.


Answer:

thank you! i just use lighter/less contrasting colors for that area compared to the rest of the pic (like gray lines instead of black ones)

jagg17 asked: Not sure if you were asked this already, but how are you able to sell copyrighted characters on your merchandise? I was thinking about selling some MLP phone cases, but I don't wanna get in trouble.


Answer:

hopefully this is the answer you’re looking for! http://barachan.tumblr.com/post/71249463980/i-really-enjoy-your-style-regarding-fanart-how-do

tl;dr with a few exceptions, most companies care way less than we think they do, so long as you aren’t straight up bootlegging their stuff and/or mass producing your merchandise

jeiae asked: Gotta say that I really am envious of your 'geometric' coloring style. I think it gives a very stylized look, but ends up ultimately looking very natural when you step back and look at the whole image. The rendering seems very systematic (in a good way), and I'd love to have it explained. Is there anyway you could do a 'tutorial' in which you break down the coloring style and what you're thinkin' while you make certain artistic decisions?


Answer:

honestly i don’t know how to explain it, i’m sorry :( it’s something i just kind of run with as i work…it’s possible there is some subconscious reasoning/method behind it, i just have no idea how to put it into words lol

blueyogurt asked: I figured I should have send a TA instead. W-will you not be selling the pouch/purse of 130825 bunny online? Been waiting for them to be available since you posted a teaser for them > w < /post/85230634194 && have you finished the NeoQueenSerenity you showed a WIP of before? /post/81413568621 Thank you very much for the time ~


Answer:

i’d like to sell them online eventually, it’s just that the ones i’ve had made have sold out at the conventions i brought them to! once i’m done with cons for the year (AWA will be my last one) i’ll see what i can do about getting some more for online sales

the NQS image was meant to be a cover for a mini b&w zine i wanted to do for moon crisis, so the image itself is done but i wasn’t able to finish the rest of the zine before shipping my show pieces over, so that project is on hold for now

gippsydanger asked: Hello Rose! First of all I'd like to thank you for the sketchbook, its awesome! I really love the doodle you did of my bunny ^^ Onto the question: Do you have any resources/books/sites that you personally recommend to artists who want to get into graphic design? I've been thinking about doing some dabbling in it so I could perhaps apply some of that knowledge into my own art! The way you compose your pieces are really spunky!


Answer:

hey, i’m so glad you liked it! thank you for ordering one!!

for composition (relating to illustration,) i recommend arthur wesley dow’s book on the subject — there’s some good info about line, motif, notan etc.

for general graphic design, i love jason santa maria’s site. the grid system has some useful stuff for, well, designing on grids, and fontshop has free ebooks about typography

good luck!
