name: Monika “RUDEOWL”
year of birth: 1988
Q1: When did you start making art?
I don’t remember exactly. It happened long time ago, when I was a child. All my life I’ve been drawing in many very different styles but bloody and dark things were my favorite theme. Later on I decided to start a gallery on some society portals like Devianart. That’s all.
Q2: What does inspire you?
I’m person who is inspired by everything around me; music, works of other people, world around me. It happens in the moment when I know what I want to draw.
Q3: What are your techniques?
I use traditional and digital techniques and I love them both. In traditional I like ink and watercolor . I think they have big potential and charm.
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
Hmm…it’s a hard question. I think that depends on recipients of my works. Different people feel different things when they see my works and it depends on them what feelings are hidden behind my works. But for me my works mainly convey sad and psychotic feelings.
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I think my art have 3 main colors:
– black – because it’s my favorite color and ink color which I use when I’m working on my comic. Monochrome and dark arts are my favourite. Black color is necessary for this.
– blue – because I love blue,
– red – blood color which is often present in my works .
Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
I want improve anatomy because sometimes it very hard to draw particular pose and I want to be able to draw without any problems.

Yes. I want to create at least one episode of anime .

Dark, bloody and colorful hehe
Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
I used ink for this, fineliners and some photoshop. This comic page had to be sexy 😀
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
I think nothing.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
For me it’s a passion of my life. I spend all of my free time drawing, that means something.
