Hey, Ribka. I would like to ask if you listen to any music when you're drawing. I'm sorry if you answered this question already, feel free to ignore it if it's so. :) have a nice day!
Of course i listen to music when i’m drawing, i’m listening to music whenever i’m at my laptop (: If you wanna know what kind of music i listen to: Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, a tiny bit of Bastille, LOTS and lots of soundtracks (especially LOTR, HTTYD, Disney), Paramore, Aaron Tveit, Tegan And Sara etc. But usually it’s just a mix of everything (:
Hi Rita! I have some questions, that maybe you've already answer (if yes, feel free to not answer again!) but well.. First, how much time would you say you take to develop (?) your style ultil now? Like, realistic drawings, that really remember the artist you portraited? Do you remember what you felt when you were practicing, and couldnt get what you were expecting? And do you have any tip, like.. start from the eye, or nose, or use grid/guide lines? I'm so lost ): Sorry for the confuse asks
Hi! I don’t think i answered a question like this before (:
The thing is i am still developing my style, every time i draw i think “How the hell do i draw eyes??? Is there any specific way i do that?” and i still think that i don’t have recognizable style of drawing (i don’t mean coloring, coloring is the only thing i am sure about when i’m drawing) xD
How much time to develop a style - an eternity! Really. You can develop and change it your whole life as long you like it. I don’t think it’s possible to draw everything in the same style forever, so it’s constantly changing (: But i guess it took me a year to develop my more cartoony “style”. I still change things almost every time i draw (:
"Like, realistic drawings, that really remember the artist you portraited? " i don’t think еhat i understood you right? Do you mean if i can list artists whose style inspired me and i kind of took bits of it? Here they are: Andaglas, FirstFruits, Fernanda Suarez, Disney and Dreamworks animation, Kreugan and MARVEL\DC comic book artists.
Do you remember what you felt when you were practicing, and couldnt get what you were expecting? - I still feel like that most of the time, don’t worry (: Sometimes it would piss me off and i just didn’t finish a drawing. Sometimes it would piss me off and make me work hard on every little detail until i’m satisfied with it.
And do you have any tip, like.. start from the eye, or nose, or use grid/guide lines? - I always start with a rough sketch of a head - stick figure for body - torso - legs - arms. And then work on head/face details - clothes - body parts which are not covered with clothing.
As for just a face - i start with a head shape, then guide lines for center of the face and eyes-nose - mouth lines. Then i draw nose - eyes - eyebrows - mouth - ears (:
Why doesnt anyone know that u have instagram?? And why dont you post anything?
You actually answered your first question yourself xD i don’t post anything there, that’s why i don’t see any reason to let people know about it (: but yeah, it’s ribkadory as usual.
Why i don’t post anything - i don’t wanna? I’m not a big fan of sharing pics, if i wanna share a drawing, i’ll post here and dA. And if i actually wanna upload a pic, i usually wanna share it on Twitter (which i use much more often) so i just upload it to Twitter (: you’ll ask why do i have an Instagram account then - to stalk people, what else i can do there xD
I decided i need a personal blog to reblog random stuff i like, because i don’t like my art being mixed with everything else i’ve been reblogging lately xD And also sometimes i just wanna write personal stuff, but i don’t want it in my art blog.
So yes! Starting today ribkaDory is an art blog only! And ribkaBubbles is for just me and those of you who want to get to know me better and stuff :3 I hope you won’t be disappointed in me haha
FREEDOM TO MY FEELS AND FANGIRL MODE
let’s just hope i won’t be forgetting about changing blog buttons
reblogging again for those of you who missed this announcement yesterday (:
Say five facts about yourself and then send this to ten of your favorite followers!
Ххаах почему я наперед знала что это ты? Магия )
- I watched Carrie today and was bored as hell. Didn’t like it at all -_- also for some reason Russians translated it as Telekinesis wtf
- I ate an ice-cream today for the first time in 5 months (:
- SOMEHOW I’VE FALLEN FOR TOM HIDDLESTON and idk how the hell that happened… DDDDD:
- Not so long ago i had a dream in which Robin Thicke came to Ellen Show, he cried and cursed, and then said he was gay
- After watching Thor 2 i had a dream about Tom Hiddleston. He spent vacation in our house, he was so sweet and somehow we ended up being together. My mom wasn’t very pleased about it saying “Rita? With Tom? But he’s so old and not attractive man at all…” Tom was very embarrassed xD Since then my friend and i call him Old unattractive man :D
Hey guys, i don’t know what to read and i reaaally loved James Dashner’s The Maze Runner trilogy (And enjoyed his The eye of minds too).
So i thought maybe you can recommend me something? I want something adventurous with action, maybe post-apocalyptic thing (: oh and if main character is male it would be perfect! And i’m not a big fan of too much romance in a book D: And don’t worry if a book is kinda harsh, with blood, death, torture and stuff! And creepy things is cool too, i love getting chills and then being scared at night >:D
PS: Just to give you a hint - I loved Hunger Games and really enjoyed Percy Jackson (though PJ is kinda a little childish for me) and i really didn’t like Mortal Instruments.
PPS: AAHH You guys are the best! I will definitely check out all the descriptions to the books :D I don’t even now which one of them to start now xD THANK YOU <333
Hi Rita! First of all, I adore your art (and your new blog theme/picture too omg I only just saw it now so pretty ahhhhh). Anyway, I wanted to ask you, how did you get so good at backgrounds? I continuously struggle with drawing backgrounds, even though my art has seemingly improved in all other aspects.. ;-;
Hi! Thank you so much :3 i’m loving my theme too :D
First of all - Thank you! But i feel like i’m not good at backgrounds at all xD you should have seen what i actually wanted to make as a background for that Pocahontas piece, but it ended up looking horrible D: I struggle with backgrounds too! Oh god, i really don’t know how to help you here… I am so sorry! I found this tutorial on Perspective and Composition that might be helpful. When it comes to buildings and interior then perspective is something you have to understand for sure (: Also light source is important too. I rarely do backgrounds, so i don’t have much experience to share with you :( oh and try to make background as an addition to the main figures of the drawing, so that it will compliment them and not distract.
I feel so bad for not giving any advice or tips or anything D: SORRY
Hello! I'm the same anon that asked for Kai, you did an amazing job (as always xD) So him and Val are now a couple?! Could you (of course when you have free time) draw some Kai and Val? I've been waiting for some of them and now since they're a real couple it'd be so lovely to see them doing something cute together :D!!!
I’m glad you like it (: Those two idiots can’t be cute, they can be anything but cute xD the cutest thing they can do so far is live a day without yelling at each other
Ahh i know i know… it’s just i don’t feel like drawing him lately, sorry D: and i hate making myself draw something i don’t wanna draw, because… why? and it wouldn’t be fun :( so you guys have to just deal with my muse, who’s a very unstable lady and won’t do everything you ask her to *though i wish she did*
