Have you studied art anywhere?

No, I am a self-taught artist and I haven't studied anywhere.

For how long have you been drawing?

In 2007 i started being interested in CorelDraw but i used it only for a year. Then in March 2009 i started drawing traditional portraits. In May 2009 i bought my first tablet and since then i draw digitally.

How do you draw?

I draw everything digitally almost never traditionally. Digital sketch - digital lines - digital coloring.

What software do you use?

I draw in PaintTool SAI and then edit my work in Photoshop CS5.

What tablet do you use?

I use Wacom Intuos4 small.

Can you make a tutorial on *something* ?

My tutorials - ribkadory.deviantart.com/galle…
a video about how i color hair vimeo.com/41581714
video process with commentaries on how i draw lips vimeo.com/42314258

Do you take requests / art trades?

Sorry to tell you that but no, I don't take requests / art trades.

Do you use references and if you do where do you get them?

Yes, I use references a lot and honestly I think that it's my problem I have to learn to draw without them. Where do I get them? Basically everywhere, I often use www.shutterstock.com/ , sometimes when I don't find anything there I google, but I try to avoid google because a lot of people search for references there and those which pop out on the first page have been used a lot of times already. Also when I draw a character whose temper I know I look through celebrities' photoshoots, or if I use one specific celebrity as a ref for a character I look through their photos. Sometimes it's just BAM and I fell in love with a photo (: I also tend to save pics on my laptop even if I'm not going to use it right now and then when I can't think of anything I just look through my folder with refs and sometimes it helps to come up with an idea.


Do you do commissions?

Yes, I do. I make full colored commissions ribkadory.deviantart.com/journ… and sketch commission ribkadory.deviantart.com/journ…

Can I use your art for *insert title here* project / to re-draw your drawing etc? (anything that doesn't make profit)

Yes, as long as I have credits (my name and link to my page) and I'd love to see the result but it's not necessary. BUT if you want to use one of my works as a cover for your book/logo/commercial and other thing which you'll sell then we have to discuss details first, in this case contact me.

What's OC and who is Iris (Leroy, Erik, Ink and others)?

OC – own character. I've created a bunch of characters and right now working on a story about them. Iris (the girl with blue hair) is the main character.

If you're writing a story where can I read it?

You can find it here ribkadory.deviantart.com/galle… Right now I am in progress of translating it. It takes a lot of time that's why I work on it very slowly. For Russian readers ribkadory.deviantart.com/galle…

May I draw one of your characters?

It would make me extremely happy :D It would be very flattering ^^ I very appreciate it when someone draws something for me it makes me run in circles and scream happily xD

What is a Killjoy and why you draw them so often?

Killjoys – fictional characters made up by Gerard Way (frontman of the band My Chemical Romance) for more info follow the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danger_D…
I love this band and also the whole concept of Killjoys not mentioning their colorful outfits and I also receive a lot of commissions with Killjoys.

What\who inspires you?

I can't answer this question with straight answer because I don't really know myself. I am very unstable person and my interests change almost every year. But inspiration always comes from something I am crazy about at the moment. It can be music, bands, movie, book, a person, lyrics, other people's characters (oh that inspires me a lot). I guess I can say that pretty much everything. Of course other artists inspire me the most I think, I often take a look at their galleries, notice little details and specific style of theirs, sometimes when I see something which kind of catches my attention I try to re-make it in my own way. There are plenty of things xD



let me know if you have any other questions (:

Heyho, I've a question too :3
Current I draw traditionally and of course it doesn't look so good lika a digital art. I thought about a graphic tablet, photoshop and some other paint tools. But all those things are to expensive for me cause i'm just a student and don't earn my own money. x.x Now i would buy a small Wacom Tablet, thats not so expensive like a medium version. And now my question to you: Is a small one enough for a beginner like me? What do you use at the first time? And do you already earn your own money?Giggle

Thanks in advance! (and sorry fo the bad english e.e)

Hey Rita! I love your art immensely, but I've always been curious what brushes you use in Sai? I'm pretty sure it isn't the regular 'pen' or 'brush' but I might be mistaken. I was just wondering because I love the way everything turns out! Thanks. c:

Hi! No, actually i do use regular brush pretty much for everything (: lineart settings ribkadory.tumblr.com/post/1928… and for sketching i lower density to 20. Then i just tweak density if i'm painting, especially skin, usually it's somewhere between 5-20 to make a softer look (: i do use grungy kind of brushes sometimes to make lineart, but very very rarely

Sorry to peep into this little thread here haha, but I'm a Photoshop CC user who doesn't have SAI and was wondering if you have any recommendations about what brush/brush settings maybe that are like what you use for human skin? o: I've been struggling to find what I like using for painting regularly.

I have a question. I want to use some of your art in a book I am writing. But I do want to fix it up a little so it goes with the story. I was wondering if you would fix 1 of my sketch's for me. Please note me if possible. It would really help. :) (Smile)

Errrr

1. Do not change any of my works please, it's very disrespectful. And i am not okay with people using my personal work for their writing or anything else. If it's a fanfic you're writing and you want to add a pic to it, and by accident i did a fan art of the characters that are in your fanfic, then you can use it, but with credits of course.

2. No, i don't fix anyone's sketches, sorry.
