Okay. Basically we all have commission threads here but no thread here where we could talk about art, share tools, ask stuff and tutorials and plugin our RO1 art-related events  (and random stuff) and where everyone can participate :o so i thought this would help.

This is a really great way for those in the community to just be able to talk to others, share ideas, and be constructive. Wonderful post kokeshicat!

 

Nickname/alias: tatihana00 

Ign: Dagny ( among many others )

Server: Chaos (for now)

Programs you use: Manga studio ( eventually photo shop or sai )

Tools of Trade (digital and traditional materials): pencil, embroidery , acrylics, tiny wacom pad.

What got you into drawing?: I've always randomly drawn, but my best friend got me to actually sit and draw.

Favorite subject to draw in Ragnarok: AB's and porings

Favorite class in Ragnarok: AB, Gen, ranger

Strengths: can't say that I really have any.

Weaknesses: backgrounds, angles, everything really.

Top 3 favorite artists! (who probably influenced you or inspire you): Kiyoko, Pandy, ryfee.

Preferred artstyle: not sure.... i just change....

Music you enjoy listening to while doing art: jazz, indie, bluegrass, religious chants, movie sound tracks (all with rain background)

Your commission thread: not good enough, and i charge too much for mediocre work.

Your folio: somewhere on these forums <3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PS.

Would it be possible to have a separate link that shows others the questions you asked and the responses. I just think that if we all put our answers here and they are not  transferred to another list (consisting of the intro about us), we would get lost in conversations. or that the conversations would get lost in "hi, i'm so and so"...

How about this for another monthly challenge? (Or a whenever challenge.)

Pimp My Yai
A Yai is a Laphine house formed from a drupe of the Bifrost Tree. It can either be suspended from the Bifrost Tree itself (as seen in Eclage) or grown up from the ground (as seen in Splendide). A major part of Laphine culture involves the decoration of one's Yai. Decoration materials can include monster parts, plants, leaves, jewels, etc.

i'll add a whenever challenge lol. let's keep monthly challenge for errr usual celebrations for that month :P

this is interesting, was there a quest related? XD but i'd def try this (been itching to do something different on my free time)

 

people could probably link their works or post em here :) even just a sketch and flat colors would do. 

 

edit: saw the Halloween Loading Screen winners! congrats to everyone who participated in that event! I really had fun browsing through the posts :o i wish i had time to join but meh (next time maybe :P still enjoying my Katusa XD)

There are, I think, a couple of quests that asks you to collect decoration materials for a couple of Laphine's Yai. They explain the concept of the Yai and a few non-quest Laphines emphasize its significance in Laphine culture.

The Bifrost drupes have an egg-like shape so the challenge would probably be akin to decorating Easter eggs. Except it has doors and windows.

mmm i still haven't done that quest in pRO and iRO. maybe once my level is high enough i will =D i did some sketches last night but i'll probably refine it since i don't have my laptop and iRO with me this week :3

 

Yea, was hoping that your art would still pop up in the last minute of that contest but meh. =V There were still a number of great artists in the forums whose entries I was expecting to see but nothing. Hoping to see them with their awesomeness next time. The more the manier. lol ^^

 

i was waiting for other artists too but probably most of them are busy XD i was busy doing inktober and commissions so i barely had time to join lol (and my halloween costume as well) but god the artworks are amazing! XD

 

the deadline for the halloween loading screen was crazy fast!! @___@ so i wasnt able to submit... plus i didnt know what the prizes were lol

 

i know D: i was hoping it'd end somewhere around 25th but it was darn earlier :( i dont mind the prizes but its not everyday i get to draw halloween art LOL :P

 

i'm pretty sure there will be a christmas themed contest :D hopefully i could join. :P
