FAQ (updated 11/22/17)

Tue Apr 26, 2011, 7:50 PM
I'm Rosuuri, please call me Rosu or Suu!
I'm a freelance illustrator for 7 years now who draws for game companies mostly in the US, Germany and Japan. 
I'm currently 23 years old based in Makati.

I am self-taught! I finished a design course–Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Arts* as a Magna Cum Laude when I was 21 for the diploma.
*My college degree did not contribute to the style and work I do now! If you want to go to the same college and course as mine, it will not teach you anything relevant to my style and in the industry I work in.

I am actively replying the most in Twitter and I post a lot of random life stuff (and fangirling over senpais) in Instagram stories. Nice to meet you! ^^/

Please read the rest of the FAQ below for more info!

Art - Facts & Tools

What programs / TOOLS do you use to draw?

When did you start drawing ?

I started taking art seriously when I was 15 years old.
I started digital art with a mouse in 2009.

How long does it take you to finish one illustration?

It depends on the complexity. It's usually 3 hours to days.

Are you going to publish and sell your manga Alice's Cross?

No plans of printing and selling a physical copy until I finish around 3-4 chapters.

Do you sketch on the computer or on paper?

I sketch directly on CSP using my tablet. I don't draw on paper unless I'm forced to Orz

Can I draw your character/OC?

Of course you can! Credit/link back to me as the owner AND show it me because i'd love to see it (I will fave and comment) ! ^ o ^ <3

What tool do you use to color?

CURRENT: I use a modified airbrush and mechanical pencil in CSP

BEFORE: I use Sai's default Oil Water, Blur and Airbrush tool to blend and make gradients.

Art - Services & Usage

Do you take requests?

No, I have no time to draw for myself more so for free. T - T 

Do you take art trades?

No, unless we are close friends


Yes, please email me at and I'll link to my commercial commissions site that includes the ToS, rates, breakdown and procedure
The price is higher than personal commissions because you'll be provided with a full-license for the artwork.

Would you like to participate in "this project" (artbook, contest, doujin, manga, prize) ?

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/compensation is reasonable, I'll join!

Can I/we use/reupload your art for my/our website/group/avatar or image sharing site?

Yes, you can repost under the following conditions:
  1. My watermark is not covered of cropped off
  2. A link to my sites & original artwork is EASILY found 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.

A few people asked for a donation button for using my work. I finally figured out how to make one... after years of putting it aside. > < ;
Donation button:…

Can I use your art for practice/reference ( copying style, reference etc)?

It's ok! Although sometimes it bothers me if it's a blatant copy without putting your own artistic ideas and twist to the piece and constant denial that it was inspired by my work. 

YES, you can use my art as reference under the following the conditions:
  1. In the description properly state: "Reference Used: [link of my deviation] by rosuuri [link to my da]"
  2. 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 ?

It says you use a modified brush to color, but what are the settings? Does one of your Patreon rewards already explain it? And if so which one?

My parents don't want me to graduate with art. I get that for some people it doesn't work out and they might end up having trouble finding money. So I'm really impressed and inspired by you ; u ; I'm still a freshman so I don't really know what I want to graduate with but I sway more towards the arts at the moment. Though, it would be a lie to say that I'm not worried about what I am aiming for... Hahaha I'll just have to work harder then! ง> ^<)ง

Hi love! I just had a question X3
You have a site to sell prints on tictail, and I wanted to know how that site works??
Like, do you, yourself, print your prints? Or does the company? Do you get the funds yourself??
Sorry if these questions are bothersome D: ! I felt that it's better to get info from others, since the site didn't give me too much info (didn't wanna sign up for it just yet)

edit: Thank you so much for your time!!

How long do you usually wait to submit a drawing after finishing it? o v o Or does it usually just vary depending on the piece?
Rosuuri Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Ohh! I submit whenever I remember they exist. ;; v ;;
I finish a couple of art a day (mostly for work) and I can't post them right away.
I also only post 1 or 2 art per week because I don't like spamming my watcher's inbox O|-<

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  Professional 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.
