Rosuuri's avatar
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 - 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 rosuuriart@gmail.com 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!
Email: rosuuriart@gmail.com

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. > < ;

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.

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?
