About the Artist
Hello everyone! I go by Ruby (or Rubi, as my username is Rubixa-Seraph.)
I've been on DA for a decent amount of time now, and looking at the snapshots of memory in my mind, my DA page sure has changed, just like my art. (This profile page used to be a MESS of color and images.)
I'm a digital artist (b/c a single tablet is more affordable to me than constantly replacing traditional materials) but I greatly adore traditional art. ESPECIALLY pencil work or ink work. Markers are lovely, too.
Art has been in and out of my life...never a career but something I wish could just be what I can live for. For a long time, I did music, too. But a piano is even less affordable than art supplies, and besides, who wants to listen to me play 5-minute long classical pieces? Haha. Yes, I suck at play-by-ear. I'm your sight-reading pianist.
While art used to be an escape for me, it is now a means to catch up. The years of my childhood spent trying to draw in secret is finally over. The threat of being grounded for drawing no longer looms over my shoulder.
I am free.
Due to all I went through in order to get where I'm at in art, I will never give up on it, even if I can't devote my time to it. Determination is the ability to prevail over time; it is a disgrace for anyone to give up on something because they are dissatisfied with their progress. (Though with a full-time job, finding time to continue on art is a different story. Family first, after all.)
So now I will spend my time catching up to my best friend and rival, MoonPhyr , and spend lovely time with my fiance, Lunar-Oatmeal .
But I suppose I should say a few others things about myself. Hmm...Multi-faceted but clearly cracked in a few places. I come with my flaws, and some pretty troublesome quirks. I'm your reserved China-doll one moment, to a guns-blazing spitfire the next...or a melodramatic stuck up. I come with a severe case of "want to be everything but can't" and I should probably stop using a male character as my go-to "avatar". Oh, who am kidding? It's great to be a pretentious prince once in a while.
