I´m a self-taught drawing artist and artisan crafter from Argentina.
Though I´ve never been formally instructed as an artist, through effort and many years of practice, I´m managing to make a humble living doing the things I love! ^^
I enjoy most forms of art, and Literature, history, biology, mythology and animation are some of the many things I love and feel interested about, and they influence much of my work.
The Lord of the rings and The Dark Crystal have been my two main sources of inspiration, and they clearly echo through my art style and tone, whether more obviously (as seen in my extensive fanart on both) or more subtlely, in the aesthetics of my original works.
The wonderful skeksis from Jim Henson´s The dark crystal and Sméagol/Gollum from the Lord of the rings have been muse-characters for me, and I love to create fanart about them!
A bit about my backgrounds:
*I grew up reading fairytales and hundreds of fantasy stories, and watching fantasy movies and series (like The Dark Crystal, Legend, Labyrinth, The Neverending story and the amazing Storyteller ) and the worlds they brought to life awoke my imagination since my earliest childhood, making me want to create "magical" things and visions like those I saw on the screen.
I breathed and lived fantasy and dinosaurs, and drew a lot about them during my entire childhood. Later in my life, even tho my feelings for the magical and bizarre world on the stories I loved had not dimmed, I had serious intentions to follow up a specific career I had been preparing myself for across my teenage years: my plan was to become a palaeonthologist.
After many visits to the university, making numbers and several failed attempts to rise funds for the career with multiple part time jobs, I had to admit my defeat into it, and resigned.
Of course, life had to go on, and I still needed to make a living, so I recurred to what I had always been doing just for fun: art!
In a short time, and after much practice and strife to manage decent drawings and sculpts, I ended up becoming a freelancer artist, and living from what I draw and sculpt.
My biggest and most heartfelt passion lies into illustration and comic-making, although my sculpts and crafts are my main source of incomes!
Here in Deviant art, I´ve found a supportive and good community with which I can happily share my drawings, sculpts, and most of all a lot of fanart, which is what I do just for fun, and one of the things that make me smile through every day!
I surely hope my works will make you all smile too! ^^
I hope to keep my core membership active for my watchers to have a swifter, better experience when browsing through my page. It would help me lots if you kindly donate any ammount of points! Even the smallest ammount will always be of help- so, if you enjoy my art, and wish to help me out, please leave your donation! ^^
I have indeed, but I'mmafraid I'm a fan of just the old movie
The show is very well done and was acclaimed by pretty much everyone, however there were a lot of choices it made whih I felt were way too far from the logic and meaning of the old classic, to which I'm very much attached. ^^
Just letting everyone know that SkekLa is currently experiencing some problems with her laptop (as she mentioned in the recent journal) and will not be online for a while and has asked that I let people know. Not to worry though, the repairs have already been arranged and she will be back soon (two weeks tops!)
**I don’t think Jim Henson left any notes about how to say thanks in Skeksan, tho some day I might improvise some made-up words in Skeksis lang for fun, by combining and distorting the same languages he had used as base for it! ^^ **
