The Hunter's story
-“And suddenly, that beast was right before me, clawing at my chest and my arms with its scythes! “-
When the Hunter remarked the most thrilling moment of his story with a violent hit of his fist on the table, all the skeksis who had leant forward to listen raptly at his coarse voice jumped back with a start.
-“And then? What happened then?!”- demanded the Ornamentalist,wide-eyed and fanning his madeup face with a tremulous hand.
The Emperor had kept eating with apparent indifference during skekMal’s retelling. His eyes, though, hadn’t stopped darting back and forth between his food bown and the Hunter’s face. Not even His Lordship could have guessed what had to happen to the savage skeksis in black to make him dissapear for several days and return all torn and bloodied, roaring for food and bandages from the Scientist.
Even though he was just as eager to know as his courtiers were, skekSo remained silent and composed as he listened, in order t

I'm a self-taught artist from Argentina.
Though I've never been instructed in any art fields, by effort , love, and lots of practice I became an artist by will ;) .
I enjoy almost any form of art, as well as I love books, movies, history, horror stories, biology, epics and mythology.
Any kind of interesting creature or story will surely wake my curiosity...

Smeagol/Gollum, from The lord of the rings :iconsmeagolsmileplz:
and the gorgeous Skeksis from The Dark Crystal Beautifully Ugly by SkekLa are my favorite fictional characters and have always been an endless source of inspiration for my works of art (both inspiring extensive fan-art and influencing my original works.)

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, Labyrinth 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 ever 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!
My biggest and most heartfelt passion still lies, however, in Illustration, drawing, and comic-strip making!
