My 3C

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 1, 2013, 11:05 PM

Hiya Ryceballs, today I wanna talk about three amazing artists that has inspired and motivated and kinda shaped who I am as an artist today, all three of them has a Deviantart account so you can check out their stuff if you like. And all three of them so happen to have their name starting with C, how about that huh? So I guess a tip is if you wanna become an amazing artist, change your name to something starting with C. Ry is also fortunate enough to know all three of them over time and likes to think of them as my senpais.

 Sabotage by theCHAMBA The Evolution of Gohan by theCHAMBA  Holding their Collab by theCHAMBA EMMA by theCHAMBA a Silent Train ride by theCHAMBA GoukenSteps by theCHAMBA I'm Monkey D. Luffy by theCHAMBA Fathers and Sons by theCHAMBA Karting with Spirit by theCHAMBA
Chances are if you are on Deviantart long enough you probably have come across his work already since he's been active on Deviantart for 10 years and he's like a megastar in the art universe. When I first joined Deviantart, he was one of my earliest people I watched because I just loved his perspective and angle he chooses in his work, he made me realise that you can take a regular looking character and make them interesting if you choose a cool looking angle and give them a dynamic pose. It made me aware of how important an action and perspective is. So if you remember in my earlier drawings (We are talking about like over 5 years ago) my art style was quite cell shaded like Chamba's. I had no idea how to use a graphic tablet and kinda new to Photoshop painting so I just used his anime shading style as my own for a while. And last year I finally get to meet him when I travelled to Melbourne and turns out he is aware of my work (Senpai noticed me), and we decided to collab on a Mario Kart artwork, with him doing the lines and I doing the shading and coloring.

Chancake is another artist I followed since the beginning, I don't know 90% of the anime she watches but what I like about her stuff are the colors she used in her artworks as well as the cute and somtimes handsome faces. I like how her stuff often has a humourous message behind it too and her stuff has a very graphic design feel to it, I don't know how to describe it but her stuff are very.. Strong and Vibrant and Funny and just overall amazing. So long ago I noticed she has a Marth icon zooming in, back then I had a boring yellow lightning bolt icon and I wanted to make something new so I asked if I can join her Zoom Smash Bro family and she said sure! So I made my pikachu zoom icon and has been using it ever since. We also met a few times in conventions, shes so nice and so funny too. I am particularly a fan of her Suits and Suits series, its really great :D I still dont understand how she can mix and match certain colors and it would look so great as a whole, this girl got natural talent.


Encounter by cuson gatchaman Ken Washio by cuson potter and voldemort by cuson poster for siu kong series by cuson keeping up by cuson siu kong with Siamese by cuson Luna Lovegood by cuson black jack by cuson watch out my lord by cuson

If Chamba taught me about perspective and Chancake taught me about colors then I guess Cuson taught me how to paint properly. Now the other two artists aint TOO hard to meet as they lived in Australia, but what are the chances of me meeting Cuson? Well chances weren't high but weren't low either, so happen he lived in Hong Kong (Im from Hong Kong too by the way) and one time he was invited to Sydney as an artist guest for SMASH!. He didn't speak much english so when he was over here, I was able to use my dodgy cantonese to communicate with him, I was feeling brave and just wanted to tell him that I really liked his stuff, who knew in return he changed my life. He did a live demonstration of how he paints on stage, this demonstration revolutionised the way I do my work, it even pushed me to not use the mouse to draw anymore and actually use a proper Wacom graphic tablet. I followed his every step and even today I still follow those steps! Later that year I was in Hong Kong and met up with him and his wife again for BBQ. There's nothing more awesome than spending time with someone you admire for a day.

So there you go, I have other deviantart Artists that I look up to as well but the 3C are definately my top three artists that holds a special place in my heart.
RYCEBALLS! I want you to name one artist that you really admire on Deviantart, JUST ONE! And it cannot be Ry-Spirit either. OK? Got any questions? WELL TOO BAD. COMMENT AWAY. I will check out their pages and tell them who brought me there.

HOW DID I MISS THIS OH MAN... ;__; thanks for the mention bro, I'm really flattered!
I also want to thank you for being an inspiration to me, especially recently where I have been feeling rather lost with my own art. After seeing you in person and getting to know you a bit better, you've helped rekindle my joy for illustration by keeping such a great attitude of positivity and fun within the artist community :) Thanks, Ry!

:iconaeonpants: and :iconditto9: were my two favourite artists when I first got on deviantart (now I'm lucky enough to be friends with both of them :D),  and I also love :iconmnrart: and :iconalicexz:'s art. ^^

:icondestinyblue:, I love her colours and also all the thoughts and concepts behind her art. I've met her twice and although I don't think she's looked at my stuff she's a lovely person and so very friendly. Since I've been watching her my style has changed and it's a little bit more like hers I guess. Hehe. I do love her stuff so.
:iconbatlesbo:, Again, amazing colours and her webcomic, Go Get a Roomie is so funny! The way that that is drawn is so obviously hers, I think that's cool. Her style is very distinct and her characters are so... 3D.... They're like parodies of real people and I think that's awesome.
:icondaniellesylvan:, Her gallery is beautiful! Absolutely beautiful!! They're all so vivid and amazing and so full of life and I think that's really cool!
:iconenamorte:, Again, has a beautiful gallery. The way that she uses colours,whether many or few in a piece, is awesome! Also, she listened to some advice of mine when she was going through an art block and that made me feel happy because it was just, like, someone amazing listened to me!! *flails*
:iconsakimichan:, The details in her work is mind-boggling!! I can stare atone piece for ages and just look at all the little things in it! It's stunning! I love her fanarts lots. So good!
And, I'm going to say you too because I love your style so much! I haven't been watching you long but I do love your work loads!!

Now, those are the drawing ones that I love and there are many others for drawing and other things too but those are the main ones I think. ^^

I did a really short journal about my inspirations a while back and it has changed recently but if you want to look it's here: random-drawer-person.deviantar…

HAHAHHA I was going to say yuumei--

When I first came to DeviantArt a few years agoooo I immediately fell in love with an artist who was reaching his peak of popularity at the time... :iconemperpep: his traditional works are amazing~
As I got older, I discovered :icondaenarys:...who EEEEVERYBODY well as her friend :iconriingo: >//v//<
She's my best friend, and I have always always alwaaays admired her, even though she says she's not good at anything actually no she's just being modest-- :iconshosika:
And also :iconslyvanie:...I love her arts so much
I don't really follow this person as much as I do with the others, but I adore her work :iconcelestialvalkyrie:

When I first made a DA account my first inspiration was k-koji, I just really love his intake on realism, the way he colors and uses his lighting. Though he may not have alot of work posted it's still pretty inspiring for me to keep going with digital art.

As a side note along the way I came to know and love the works of  pekou and alexiuss. Pekou for her coloring and cutesy artwork. alexiuss for his realism, coloring, lighting, and his webcomic Romantically Apocalyptic.

Just one? Not fair, Ry-san, you can to pick 3! I'm picking 3 toooo! \o/

My current favourite is :iconhellobaby:. I like her colour and ability to draw really detailed designs in what seemed like a simple artwork. >.<

Another of my favourites no longer has a dA account. She was formerly known as hiimdaisy/peachifruit, known to draw really hilarious comics that pretty much poke fun of the game she loves (Persona series, PW series, Prof Layton, MGS). She's now known as Gigi Digi and works on her own original comic Cucumber Quest.

Hmm... but my First Love(s) were :iconmuhoho-seijin: and :iconzeiva:. You can't really mention one without the other because they usually collaborate, particularly when it comes to their, ahh... Visual Novel/Dating Sims. I love how the former draws so Fairy Tale-ish and magical, while the other draws so elegantly and sharp.

An artist I really admire is definitely `yuumei. Her drawings and paintings always have a deep meaning behind them, and her drawing style is incredibly unique.
I also admire you, *Ry-Spirit! Your color-picking and shading is amazing!

And when you put the first letter of those 2 usernames together, you get Ry! o:

Can't decide...too many good artists here....
RioDiGennaio Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Professional General Artist
WHY NOT YOU. YOU'RE MY BIGGEST ONE. Aaaarg, I have so many! :XD: I'll just have to choose one and roll with it:

:iconlusciouswhiteflame: - I've been watching her for over two years now, and she's the one that inspired me to animate. She's a great person with a great sense of humor despite her popularity, and her realistic style is simply gorgeous, especially the way she does hair.
yooci Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
But there are so many! I guess I will choose
Because she actually creates her own mangas, and that's pretty awesome. I want to create a manga too, and she's the proof that you can create your own stories and get other people to like them. Everytime I feel like I can't do it, I look at her mangas, and think to my self, "I have to create something as good as THIS! And if I want to do that, I have to practice!"
IridescentCatalyst Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013
I'm glad you still remember the people that inspired you. It's a good trait that few popular/rich people have.
Golden-Claw Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Aw thats awesome c:

My inspiration is `yuumei

I saw her stuff and started reading both Knite, 1000 Words and Fisheye Placebo. She's who inspired me to want to draw a graphic novel

you & cuson aside, I love >>> :icondeadbear:

kirby456 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Student General Artist
Well, if I have to choose, I'd guess it'd be these lovely ladies!

:iconnintendrawer: She's one of the few reasons I joined dA due to her abundant (did    I use that correctly?) amount of Mario fanart and her art style. Her style really does look like Nintendo's official art style!

:iconsaiiko: She introduced me to more of the 'mature' Mario fanart at the time and I really like how she makes her art look sketchy (a bit less sketchy now, but nonetheless...).

:iconnatsilva: I really admire her coloring skills (dem color pencils and copic markers yo) and she's the reason I discovered dA in the first place!

I may not draw as much as I used to before, but I'm still glad I discovered these lovely ladies.

NatSilva Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013   Traditional Artist
Awwwww... >w< thank you so very much for that, it's amazing reading how much others like our works. :D I love so many Artists on here. It's packed full of amazing people some who I fondly call friends :)
I should really get back in to drawing more O__o; I've been so busy and lazy all rolled in to one thing that is life :XD:

But seriously? Thank you so much for the wonderful kinds words. It's given me strength to keep going ^_^

You're welcome! TBH I've been slacking off as well due to schoolwork (bleh), but I tend to doodle on my schoolwork ;)

I know what you mean :nod: I've been slack lately.. not doing much with art just the odd commission here and there but yeah not really in the right mood for some reason :/ hmmr~

I do appreciate the wonderful mention though! ^_^ good luck with yah school work!
TheonknownKLAW Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Student Filmographer
This guy. This artist right here. If there was anybody who's works I'm more giddy about seeing. Its his. Partly because he's a boss and his style is that ever so rare mixture of anime and western cartoony-ness and also because he doesn't update much... but when he does! Eyegasms! Even his sketches cause Eyegasms!
SharinganAce Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Haha actually my 2 biggest inspirations are you yourself and :icongenzoman: , who was the first artist I ever saw on dA. I still love how both of you have a unique style, and I can always tell when a piece was done by one of you. :)

Haha yes. She was the one who inspired me to try art in general (as a hobby). ^^

Her Pokemon art is one of the greatest. Yours too. :D
