Random from The most awesome things

Gifts from my buddies :3


:bulletpurple: Q: What software do you use for your work?
A: The only program I use is Adobe Photoshop, currently version CS6 Extended. It was the first program I ever got for myself and I got used to It so much I had no need for any other program since. Currently I use it for both animating and drawing, and it serves me well. As for the tablet I use, it's my good ol' Wacom Intuos.

:bulletpurple: Q: How long does it take to make your animations? How do you make them look so smooth?
A: Everything depends on how complicated the pose and movement is, how many elements move independently in different directions/different speed, if it's on loop or not. Things like that, so it does vary a lot. When I'm in my special animating mood I can animate even 3 seconds per day. One second takes about 14-15 frames, so it's 45 doodles one after another (and in the evening I begin to feel like a machine that someone forgot to turn off.) 14-15 fps for me is enough to have my animations look this smooth. The more frames in between the smoother it will be.

:bulletpurple: Q: How did you learn to animate? Who taught you? Did you attend some animation classes?
A: Well, it wasn't easy, you see. I had to make a deal with this big fella in black suit, feed a goat some oreos, sacrifice that goat in my basement, and after four years of doodling crappy things, I managed to make something that actually looked good, and I've been animating only quality stuff ever since.

I graduated from this High School of Arts, however, I never had an animation class in my life. I'm a self taught, never watched any 'how to animate' videos even. Everything I know I learned by observing animation in Disney's Dreamworks' productions, sometimes watching the scene pass f r a m e by f r a m e. It was taking forever, but, I guess you can see in my gallery that it wasn't in vain.
:bulletpurple: Q: Are you working for Disney already? Or any other animating company?
A: Nope, I'm not. I really hope to get hired by some animating company in the future though. Animating makes me happy, and if I could make some serious money by being happy, it would be awesome.

:bulletpurple: Q: Are you planning on making an animated movie/writing a book, making a graphic novel featuring your characters?
A: Yes, I do. Eriu is the only character of mine I love and hate enough to actually write her story down. We'll see what will come to life first. The book, the comic or the animated movie. Can't decide. The life will probably decide that for me.

:bulletpurple: Q: Is Eriu a rp character? Can I roleplay with you?
A: Poke me at

:bulletpurple: Q: Do you do commissions/art trades/requests?
A: Commissions: yes (check the commission status), art trades: with my friends only, requests: nope (unless you want to see more of my own characters, can't never say no to those.)

:bulletpurple: Q: Is there any chance you will make some tutorials for your followers?
A: I can be a very patient person when it comes to animating, but explaining stuff to people is too much, sorry... Maybe? Someday?

"Because a happy character makes an unhappy reader."

Eriu book, people! Would you like me to post a couple of chapters online, or you'll be patient and wait until the book is printed? 

462 deviants said Post them online! Can't wait to read!
245 deviants said I'll wait. Books are awesome!
93 deviants said Post them online, I ain't buying pig in a poke.

People who messaged me about commissions are welcome to complete their orders. If you missed your chance, no worries. You'll have your chance yet :)
Lots of hugs to everyone who jumped into my inbox today! Thanks to you I won't be hungry tomorrow :dummy:

I'll update this journal soon, with a list of my commissioners.
Goodnight and take care!


Update: So I fixed the problem by... *drums* creating a new paypal account. Seemed like that's the only way it can be handled.

Może i dla Disney'a nie masz zamiaru pracować, ale to dobrze - w Polsce też przydałoby się trochę naprawdę dobrych animacji. NAPRAWDĘ.

Hello Ravietta! I've been looking around at art schools that I could possible to go to after I graduate and I was wondering if you could tell what art school you went to and if you were pleased with it and what you learned there. If you could do that it would help me out a tone! Thank you!

Well, I went to the Polish High School of Arts. I doubt you'd like to travel so far just to attend it though.

You've got some beautiful work here.   I'm in awe of your animations!   The fact that your self taught is brilliant.  Keep up the most fantastic work -- I believe that someone will want to hire you!   Best wishes and have a great rest of your day.  :)

I'm very interested in this book of yours! Do you have a place where I can read a summary? (I'm assuming you don't have any chapters up yet). I really like your art, and the OC's that you've drawn have really intrigued me! :heart:
Ravietta Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014  Professional
I don't have a summary, and it's hard to write it at this moment. As soon as I'll write one though, I'll post it on my dA.

Yay! I patiently await~ :)
