Hey, everyone! Long time no see, huh?
One year and three months later, I thought that maybe (but just maybe!) it was 'bout time I updated my page with a brand-new journal!
As you sure have noticed, I haven't updated my dA page very often in the past year. I actually spent most of the time working on my coloring skills... and, as a result, I didn't draw much. My artistic career has gone down a different road, I'm now working as a comic book colorist for IDW Publishing! This is actually my first step as a professional, so I'm still trying to adjust to schedules and deadlines without losing my mind - the worst (or best?) part of being a freelancer working from your parents' house is that you actually never set foot outside for long periods of time... but somehow I'm getting by. Also, I'm learning tons of new stuff about coloring and shading. And most importantly... where does all this money come from, all of the sudden?? :'D
I would've loved to improve my drawing skills too, during the past year, but, the more I kept on studying the basics from different approaches, the harder it got to really enjoy what I was doing. I tried to be a good self-taught student - I followed many art lessons on Youtube, tried to get the hang of how to construct a human body with shapes and volumes, sketched quite a lot and copied various artists I admire, but... in the end, I feel like I haven't made any concrete progress at all, and now I kinda feel bored and unenthusiastic... which is sad, really sad for me, since drawing has always been a major part of what I am and what I do. It's like I've lost the sparkle, or something like that... I do believe it's only a temporary phase, though. 2016 has been a very tough year in many ways, I worked a lot and some events in my personal life forced me to struggle a lot to go on with a peaceful state of mind. Maybe it's about time I escaped from my comfort zone and tried to face the drawing process from different angles.
Oh, almost forgot! 2016 hasn't been all bad, surprisingly! I'm now a proud and happy auntie of a beautiful baby girl... and this is the coolest thing ever! :heart:

So... I guess that's it! I don't think I'll ever be as much active on dA as I used to be in the past, simply because... that's how things evolve! But I really hope that, from time to time, I'll be able to update something nice in my gallery to get some precious, useful feedbacks, just like the old days! Also, I take the chance to say a big THANK YOU to all my new watchers and people who have always supported me, even though I haven't been very active lately... you guys are simply the best!

Till next time! A big hug to everybody! :hug:

Helloooooo there!

After years of self-teaching and four years of comic art school, I'm now working as a comic book colorist ... lots of fun and pain(t)!
I love comics, animation, novels, foreign languages, good music... and all the inspirational stuff around ;P

Plus, I'm a sentimental dork. Duh!

Thank you for visiting my gallery! As an anspiring artist, I always appreciate receiving constructive comments and feedback: they're extremely useful and help us grow artistically, pointing out perks and flaws... If you get the chance, please don't hesitate! :)
Hope you enjoyed the tour! :D


I don't take requests, my apologies!
