*Profile picture drawing made by AgataCzerw*

I'm a self-made artist from Argentina.
Though I've never been instructed in any art fields, by effort , love, and lots of practice (and over all, a desperate want to shed on the canvas , ink and clay the things which live in my imagination) I became one.
I love any almost form of art, as well as I love Reading, movies, history, horror stories, epics and mythology and any kind of interesting creature or story there is... I couldn't not mention here my old fellow, Smeagol-Gollum, from The lord of the rings trilogy. :iconsmeagolsmileplz:
and the gorgeous Skeksis from The Dark Crystal Beautifully Ugly by SkekLa , who are my favorite fictional characters and have always been an endless source of inspiration for my works of art.
Within Tolkien's world and Jim Henson's The Dark crystal, with it's wonderful cast of puppets who seemed to be living and breathing creatures, there were born ans still lay my first and biggest inspiration sources!
I grew up watching over and again the wonderful Storyteller, also brought to us by Henson, and along with the Dark Crystal, Labyrynth and many animation movies and old books reeking of mythical and fascinating creatures, such as Tolkien's Lord of the rings and many others by poe, Lovecraft, lord Dunsany and Ciruelo Cabral, I breathed and lived fantasy and strangely wonderful creatures since my first years. My love for them has remained the same since.

Though I have no documents to certificate it, I'm an art crafter. An artisan.
After spending many years of my younger days striving to become a paleonthologist and miserably failing at raising funds for the career, I found myself more in love with working in sculpts and crafts than the love I felt for digging (and believe me, that is a lot to say!)...
Since then, this love has grown to be a profession: nowadays I live on selling what I craft and sculpt...
I am now proud to be called a professional artisan!

Hi everybody!
I will need points if I want to stay as a premium member here on DA...in some time my membership, which was kindly given to me by a fellow deviant, will expire.
It's not a grave matter, but it would take away many of the good, enjoyable features my page currently has...
So if you'd like to help me, I'd be most grateful!
CHRISTMAS APPROACHES AND MY CORE WILL EXPIRE SOON...

Hi everyone! ^^

I pass by to tell you alll that I regret the awful delay I am having into replying your comments and notes!

I'm having a truly hurried and busy moment at home, after nedful fixups my house needs in order to function as it should!

 - My gas system has been out for now more than a whole YEAR!..I wasn't able to afford a repir until now, and seemingly it would take a long time and an unaffordable ammount of money, so I seemingly will have to see what to do, such as switching to only electric appliances (which I am still to see if it's feasible!). I'm surrounded by gas -company men most of the day XP AND must mind them to not wreck everything in search of a solution!

HOWEVER:

I will be doing all I can to get the replies coming, but I felt the least I could do was telling all of you of this, so you know why I take too long into replying ^^

New art is on the make! Just wait there, I'll be uploading further new things rather soon if I'm lucky! ---I hope, too, that I can get insightful and proper replies to all your kind comments and notes soon! :cuddle:

SkekLa, I've wanted to say this for quite some time: you're an amazing artist and you have inspired me to draw my own Dark Crystal OCs. You have reminded me why I love this awesome movie. May God bless you in all you do!

AW...Your words flatter and surprise me! ^^
I never imagined I'd be told things like these! :happycry: and yet, you are the third person who tells me my art has inspired them to draw Dark Crystal characters of their own!...
I feel very happy and humbled by this!
THANK YOU for such kind, beautiful words!!!
May God bless you too, and may you make lots of beautiful art to express yourself! ^^
