Hi everyone, this is Valentina and Ze, we've been living and making art together for more than a year now, and since we work so closely on commissions, often collaborating and passing back-and-forth pieces, we thought it only makes sense to have a joint account. This way anyone who wants to commission or collaborate with us knows more clearly who we are and what we do. We'll be putting folders for our individual works, and put our names in the description of pieces so you know who made what here.
Here's a little snippet about each of us, in case you're new here or simply need a refresher:
I started drawing when I was a kid, and was very inspired by fairytales, and that's where my affinity for mythical creatures and dragons comes from. Nowadays I read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi novels, and listen to podcasts about mysteries and legends while I draw. My goal is to make art that inspires people, and give them a sense of wonder.
I went to art highschool, but was self taught while going to (non-art) college. Eventually I dropped out of college to pursue a freelance illustration career.
I love growing plants, my balcony is full of them, and I have two cats, whom I'm constantly trying to keep from ravaging my poor plants.
I'm shy and get nervous with the prospect of talking to people, most of the time I stay home and play games instead of going out and partying.
I doodled in class simply because classes were boring, the idea of making a living from art never even occurred to me until I finished highschool and found myself at a complete loss about what to do as a career.
I took a few leaps of faith, going into debt to go to school for different game art courses, and ended up working in various places, big game companies, animation schools, small film studios, eventually ending up here in Zagreb as a freelancer.
Now-adays I just want to draw enough to pay the bills, and spend the rest of my time relaxing, meditating, reading, gaming and enjoying the beauty and charm of Croatia.
