Art  - Facts & Tools

What programs do you use to draw? *updated 11/12/14
Colored illustration: Adobe photoshop CS6 and Paint Tool Sai
Manga: Manga Studio

*Please don't ask me for pirated download links because I highly suggest buying the software.

When did you start drawing ?
All of us started to draw when we were young, right? However, I started taking art seriously when I was 15 years old.

Do you use a tablet? what brand? what size?  *updated 11/12/14
Yes, I use Huion 10 x 6 inches.

*I experienced some odd issues with its driver which causes frequent BSoD. I really recommend you guys to buy/use a Wacom tablet. I'm planning to doing so soon once I have time to. ^^

Why do you only draw female characters?
Because I adore how beautiful girls are. I also tend to have more ideas when drawing girls. But i'm trying to draw things out of my comfort zone, like males and backgrounds.  

How long does it take you to finish one illustration?
It depends on the complexity. It's usually 3 hours to days.

How long does it take you to finish a manga page?
From thumbnails to typesetting, it takes 3 to 6 hours each page.

Are you going to publish and sell your manga Alice's Cross?
Yes, I will. Though I have to finish a couple of chapters before I publish it. You may read it online for now in mangamagazine

Do you sketch on the computer or on paper?
I sketch directly on Sai using my tablet.  

When did you start drawing digitally?
I started April/May 2009 using a mouse.

Can I draw your character/OC?
Of course you can! But credit/link back to me as the owner. AND show it me because i'd love to see it (Will fave and comment) !  

What tool do you use to color?
Tools and Brush settings: Hair Tutorial by Rosuuri
I use Sai's default Oil Water, Blur and Airbrush tool to blend and make gradients.

What tool do you use to for lineart and sketching?
Tools and Brush settings: Hair Tutorial by Rosuuri
Pencil brush for sketching:…

What canvas size do you use?
I usually draw on A4 size at 300 dpi. For headshots/shoulder-up and chibis I draw them on A5 300 dpi.

What is your drawing process?
I answered this in Tumblr -…

How do you detach the navigator in your Paint Tool Sai?  *added 11/12/14

Art - Services & Usage

Do you take requests?
No, I have not time to draw for free.

Do you take art trades?
No, unless we are close friends or if I ask first.

Would you like to participate in "this project" (artbook, contest, doujin, manga, prize) ?
Just give it a try and send me a note or email. If I can squeeze the project in my schedule/workload and if I think the payment is alright, I'll join!

Can I/we use/reupload your art for my/our website/group/avatar or image sharing site?
Yes you can repost with credit, unless it's a commission piece.

Yes you can edit with proper (visible and correct name) credit to me as the artist and a link  to my original art or art sites (tumblr, da, pixiv, etc) required anywhere visible on the edit or in the description.

Yes, you can use it in your YouTube videos/channel as long as you link it back to my Deviantart. If it's a commission piece please note me beforehand.

Can I used your art for practice/reference ( copying style, reference etc)?
Although sometimes it bothers me. Please refrain from do so if you can. 
YES, you can use my art as long as you follow the conditions:
- in the description properly state:
"Reference Used: [link of my deviation] by rosuuri [link to my da]"
- There is no money/contest/or anything else not for practice involved.
I don't know how would I emphasize this but please don't TRACE OR REDRAW unless I gave you permission to.

Could you make a tutorial ?
Hair Tutorial by Rosuuri EYE TUTORIAL by Rosuuri  

can you make me an icon too?
Sorry no, they are for my icon family.


Why did you change your username to "rosuuri" (formerly tsugumi09x) ?
My real name is Roslee, I wanted a username that resembles my real name. Rosuuri was the first thing I had in mind. It also has "suu" in the middle which is a nickname I used for a while now.

Besides, tsugumi09x was created when I was 10/11 years old on crunchyroll. It was lame but this name has been part of me since then.  The moment i changed it, it felt like I was freed from the 11-year-old weabo self.

Who are the artists that inspire you the most?
Pixiv: Nardack, Welchino, Anmi, Tearfish, Rella, ASK, Rei, Kkuem,   
Deviantart: Namie-kun,  Riingo, Loika, Yuumei
Tumblr: Oliviawhen, Amei, Natazilla, Barachan

Where do you live(country)?
I live in the Philippines.

Did you take lessons in drawing or art? *updated 11/12/14
No, I am self-taught. But I decided to pursue art and now studying in an art college.

Course: Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Arts
School: De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts
Year Level: Senior / Graduating

Aside from Deviantart, where can I find you? *updated 11/12/14

Rosuuri! I also use a Huion h610.. But I'm having an issue, and I'm wondering if you have come across any solutions.

Matt talks about this issue in this video…

Sometimes it feels like I have to press down so hard to get a strong, dark mark whenever I use an opacity brush in Photoshop. Have you found a way with your Huion tablet to lower the maximum pressure sensitivity like Matt talks about in that video?

Thank you so much for this FAQ!
Rosuuri Featured By Owner Edited Jul 4, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Are you using the latest driver? You can adjust the pressure sensitivity here!
New Canvas by rosuuri   
If you're using Sai you can adjust each tools' pressure sensitivity as well.
naevorc Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014
Hm, maybe it's not the latest driver? I'm just using the one that came with my tablet. I guess I should check out the website for latest drivers then.
Rosuuri Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014  Student Digital Artist
OH! don't ever use that. It's really bad and glitches a lot. Download the ones on the site ^^/ I hope it works!
naevorc Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014

What tools do you use for your art in SAI?
I just started seeing your art when I began to pursue more skillful art myself.
I think it's amazing!
For now I'm sketching anime characters when inspired but I would love to learn from you if you'd honor me by taking the time to teach me. (:

Where would you buy Paint Tool SAI?
I heard it was a download you buy, and I want to make sure I buy it from a safe place that won't steal my money or give me a virus.
Thank you <3
hellostark Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013
You can buy it from here:

But I got it for free after I found a link on deviantART. I've had 0 problems with it and no malware/viruses or anything so far (I got it in June).…
GardianANGEL-07 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm confused as to which "download" button I click for the free one. There are a bunch of advertisements that say "download" too @A@
Is it the red one in the bar at the bottom of the screen? I just wanna be sure before I click it .__.
hellostark Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013
Click the silver one with a blue cloud and arrow on it. Also you need an account for this (a free one). The red one is probably an ad and will lead to something else.

I made an account specifically for this and it was no hassle.
GardianANGEL-07 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I clicked the red one and ended up downloading some kind of video downloader =__=
Nothing bad seems to be happening so far, so maybe I'll keep it. First sign of something wrong though, and it's a system restore.
And thanks a bunch :)
hellostark Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013
And then click on Free Download. :)
