My Bio

Tichodroma muraria, known in English as "wallcreeper", is a small bird that lives in the mountains. While it looks rather grey and ordinary while its wings are closed, as soon as it opens them it transforms into a startlingly beautiful "butterfly-bird". Flying things and hybrid animals are two of my main artistic interests, thus this bird is the perfect mascot for my art and became the namesake of my account here.

I do photomanipulations, mainly surreal or fantasy stuff. I'm a hobbyist, self-taught, and very much still a learner. As such, I appreciate constructive criticism every bit as much as praise. Also, you can absolutely share my art if you want, but please credit me & link back to the original upload!

Also, I usually only post my more "polished" stuff on here, so if you want to see my smaller/funny photomanips too, check out my tumblr!

Favourite Visual Artist
Hannah Faith Yata, Gustav Klimt, Tetsuya Ishida, Josephine Wall, Thomas Ewerhard. Everyone I follow on DA of course ;D But Square Enix's creature design for Final Fantasy 10 probably shaped me more than all of them combined.
Favourite Movies
The Zero Theorem & Last Action Hero (two very different films) I must have watched about 5 times each. Apart from this, some classics like Matrix and LotR.
Favourite TV Shows
True Blood (the best! So famous yet so underrated!), Better Call Saul & Breaking Bad, Bates Motel, early GoT, the first 3 seasons of House MD.
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Mainly power, folk and symphonic metal. I could elaborate but 255 characters are too few to describe the importance of music for me, so I won't try.
Favourite Books
I read a lot of non-fiction, mainly politics & sociology, anthropology, philosophy, psychology. But I'm also the kind of Tolkien fan who can recite the entire House of Finwë by heart :D
Favourite Writers
See above. The non-fiction authors who have had the greatest influence on how I view the world were probably Derrick Jensen, Michel Foucault, Heide von Göttner-Abendroth, Wilhelm Reich, Carl Jung and Niklas Luhmann.
Favourite Games
Various Forgotten Realms games, the Witcher series, stealth games like the Thief series (except for that atrocious Thiaf game), Deus Ex, and the ultimate stealth game, Neighbours from Hell. You must ghost your enemy in every mission, that's hardcore!
Favourite Gaming Platform
PC Gaming Master Race!
Tools of the Trade
I'm a Linux penguin but Gimp sucks too much ass, so Photoshop all the way. I have a Panasonic Lumix (with a very useful macro filter) and a Fujifilm TX10 camera. Nothing fancy but good for my purposes.
Other Interests
Pretty much what you'd probably expect judging by my art lol - Extended walks in nature, exploring alternate states of consciousness & various experiments in religion, magic, spirituality etc. I can also knit!
