Mr-Ripley's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Welcome everybody,

Reading a lot of Japanese comic books when I was young made me wanted to be a comic artist. I didn't graduate from any art institution and practiced my skill by drawing a lot of traditional portraits. Though my main intention here is to improve myself as a digital painter, but I enjoy making photomanipulation too. Above all, the deepest love I have in my life is a movie called The Talented Mr.Ripley , and my great expectation is to remake it as a graphic novel. I hope I can share it with you someday.

Thank everyone for adding my work in favorite
I don't have time to thank you for the faves personally. But please know that I am very grateful for your support. You don't have to thank me for the faves either. Let's save time to make more art instead.

To all my dA friends
I have more than 2,700 people, 420 groups in my watch list, and counting. It's hard to catch up with everyone's new work. Normally, I will check out your gallery whenever I see your comment in mine.

To anyone who want to use my art anywhere
-If you want to use my drawing, I'm the only one who decide to give permission.
-If you want to use my photo manipulation, please learn that it contains images from many stock providers. Please read their rules first to see who else you have to ask for permission besides me.

I accept commissions
I do digital drawing/painting, photomanipulation, gif animation and genreral design. My rate is around US$30 per piece (can be less or more depends on complication) Feel free to contact me in the note for more information. In case you're not a deviantART member, you can contact me on Facebook

Titans and my 10 facts

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 10:18 AM
Hi all dear friends! :wave:

Howdy everyone? 
Two weeks ago I got tagged from shadeley. Now It's high time I got it done. :P
I'm not gonna tag anyone else, will just finish my part about sharing 10 facts about myself and answering 10 questions from her.:)

Love Heart by LOVEMAYU

My 10 facts

:heart:1. I was luckily born in Buddhist country that made me automatically be a Buddhist. And the older I get the more I understand what Buddha taught.

:heart:2. When I was in primary school I got huge inspiration to be a graphic novelist from Japanese comic books like Candy Candy and Bride of Deimos.

:heart:3. When I was twelve years old I learned how to swim from my dog. I put him in the water, and watched. 

:heart:4. When I was in high school I had personality like Todd Anderson in Dead Poets Society. I could hardly breathe whenever I had to say something in front of the crowd. 
 :heart:5. Now I am like Chuck Noland in Cast Away who still has been living in the isolated island for over 2 decades and has internet to talk to instead of a volleyball.

:heart:6. I still have been waiting desperately for someone whom I met and lost on the internet 10 years ago. (What do you call this?)

:heart:7. One of the cleverest things I have ever done for my life is having a lovely flower & kitchen garden around my house. I love working there and seeing everything grows.

:heart:8. Despite being a sleepyhead, every early morning I have to jump out of my bed very quickly to make sure that none of the 20 neighbour's cats have visited and left me some hot stinky poop in my lovely garden.

:heart:9. I'm really ophidiophobic. I can hardly stand seeing even a picture of snake. (So, please don't put them in your artwork. I'm not gonna fav it!) 

:heart:10. The only weapon I have is a wooden slingshot. It's for some monkeys that like to steal my fruits. Actually, I have lots of rascals to cope with in my garden. 

Smac by Digithalie

Answering shadeley's questions

1. Where your inspiration comes from?
 Movies, books, people, religion, any beautiful thing or story that can make me be a better person.

2. What did you want to be when you were a child?
I was convinced that it's good to be a doctor. But deep inside I always wanted to be a cartoonist/graphic novelist.

3. What kind of music do you listen to?
Pop, jazz, R&B, soul, reggae, anything that makes me relax and calm and not hurt my ears too much.

4. Tea or coffee? 
Coffee. But green tea is also good.

5. Do you like reading?
Yes, but I don't have much time to read a book lately, especially a thick one.

6. What kind of films do you prefer?
Drama, dramatic thriller.

7. Have you ever felt deja vu?
No. But I have good foresight.

8. Do you believe in Fate?
Absolutely yes, if it's the same thing as karmic law.

9. Are you an outgoing or a stay-at-home person?
I am the latter one who longs to be the first one.

10. Do you have a pet?
No, but I used to have 12 cats at the same time. Nothing can be more chaos than opening the door and facing 12 hungry cats waiting for food. I miss that moment. LOL 
I plan to raise some cute budgies without cage in my garden someday in the future.
