Night Fury and Luminous Fury

 What are some unlikely duos you've discovered?
Bocón el rudo with Phlegma La feroz .... Lol xd

  What was once a hidden world for you and what did you discover?
The world of animations, 2d and 3d drawings ... It was a totally unknown world for me since my childhood I watched Disney movies and Nickelodeon series, but I never wondered how they were created until my own curiosity in art I found out that this is what I would like to do ... I discovered the programs and methods used for animation and 2D drawings which was very impressive for me

¿Cuál es tu especie favorita de dragón?
Furia Nocturna y Furia Luminosa

 ¿Qué fue una vez un mundo oculto para ti y qué descubriste?
El mundo de las animaciones, los dibujos 2d y 3d... Era un mundo totalmente desconocido para mi ya que desde mi infancia miraba peliículas de Disney y series de Nickelodeon sin embargo nunca me preguntaba como es que se crearon hasta que por mi propia curiosidad en el arte me enteré que eso era lo que me gustaría hacer... descubrí los programas y métodos que se utiliza para la animación y dibujos 2d lo cual fue muy impresionante para mí
