Doodling the “ Ray-way ”
Craftsmanship is something embedded in Raysa, one of the coolest brides’ in 2019–20 season. A persona with multitasking abilities, our very own Prattaye is not only an athlete who’s competing at the highest level in Women’s Basketball in Bangladesh but also doodling her way out in the most creative way possible. As a Masterpiece™ Bride from the house of Checkmate™, Raysa had a fireside chat with M Aminur Rahman, opening up about her passion with brushes and digital art.
We started the conversation with how long Raysa is pursuing her amazing talent.
Started doodling since 2015, but never was that regular. More of a pass time but then I seriously started. Since 2018 and I never stopped. Later on, I decided to open an account for my doodle on Instagram (Check out www.instagram.com/raydoodle), to preserve my creations in somewhat like a digital diary. I started doodling mainly with sharpies and pens. Then I went for acrylic, with which I did mostly abstract paintings. Lastly and recently, I started digital illustrations and enjoying it fully.
When we got to know how she got the idea of designing her own Gaaye Holud card, Raysa explains
I decided to design my Holud card a year before my program. It was more like a thought but I didn’t really think I would go through the idea. Even 6 months before my wedding I still didn’t make any design for the card but my husband and my sister was encouraging me to make one. Since I couldn’t get time to make an original one, because I had my studies and all wedding preparations, so I went my through my sketchbook to find out an old drawing which went well with the theme. Boom! it was finalized.
While asking about how all it started, the prodigal artist expressed,
Doodling is still a hobby and a passion, I still didn’t take it as a work or a profession nor do I sell my art. But I have plans as I really want to do something out of it in the coming days.
We did ask Raysa how often she doodles her better half and where she portrays’ him in her ink-imagination?
I have only done one proper portrait illustration of my husband and another just a funny one. And even I do make a portrait of him, I don’t really think much I just hope for the best and I hope it looks like him ( Not to mention he’s a good looking lad )
Where you want to take this craft?
Like I said, I do want something out of it. I do want exposure and actually did think of something, a plan with my sister which I can’t share right now (Fingers crossed). I have upped my practice to keep myself focused and more experienced and want to get better at what I do.
