Hello, my name is Ri, but feel free to call me anything else. I hope I am not a bother to you. I really enjoy reading any comments you guys send me and it honestly makes my day a little bit better. I enjoy talking with you all and I hope that you don't feel scared to talk to me.
FAQ (If you are scared to ask me)
Why do you call yourself C. Ri? Is that a pen name or your real one?
"C" is my last name initial and Ri is my first name(albeit a pun of it). "C. Ri" is just using the Japanese order of Last Name-First Name. It's also how "XII-Ri" should be pronounced. If I hear "Twelve Ri" or "Twelve Rye" I get a bit irritated.
What do you use to draw?
I use the program Paint Tool SAI and I use Photoshop if I can, but I'm horrible at it! I have an Intuos5 touch Medium that I use, though I draw traditionally as well. I don't post those drawings often, however.
I have a tumblr that I plan on posting these sketches however. scribbleri.tumblr.com/
How long have you been drawing?
I've been drawing since I was 4, and I started doing a more manga-esque style since I was in first grade, (5-6 yrs old) though it was mainly drawing Pokemon. My artstyle changes really quickly and I'm always mad at my art after seeing it a few weeks later. I improve really quickly and I am an artstyle mimic so my style is always a mix of things I was into at the time.
How long have you been drawing digitally?
I have only been drawing digitally with the Intuos since December 24, 2012 so I have very little tablet experience. It is my first tablet.
How old are you?
I am 16 years old.
Are you a boy or a girl?
I get this question quite a lot. Though the answer should be quite obvious (or not) after a long conversation with me, personally, I don't think it matters, but I know a lot of people who think I am one or the other so I just play it safe and keep myself anonymous. I don't like disappointing people. Though, many people refer to me as a male/use male pronouns when referring to me. I also prefer it to be this way, but I really won't correct you if you use female pronouns towards me.
Can we be friends?
Of course, I always like making friends on here and I like talking. I'm pretty shy and boring though so I wonder why you would want to be friends with me. Don't listen to the people who call me cool. Shh, it's all lies.
Heads up to anyone who is unfamiliar with the way I communicate. I pepper my usual formal speech with vulgarity to express myself sometimes. I never do this when being serious or professional however. Compare me to Kankri or Karkat and I will love you forever because woo GO CANCERS!
Can you draw something for me? Do you do commissions? Requests?
Yes, I am now accepting requests and soon I will open up for commissions. Although if you are close to me, I'll do it for free, no charge, and I will be honoured to draw something for you!
