Things about me:
1) My real name is Éder N. Santos and I'm from Porto Alegre, Brazil.
2) You're very welcome to contact me. You may use English, Portuguese or Spanish. I know some Italian too but I suck trying to use it.
3) I'm a self-taught draughtsman and painter. I make traditional art mostly, but rarely I make something digital. I also make some small sculptures for fun from time to time.
4) I like to try many different media in my drawings and paintings. Like oil, acrylics, conté crayons, pastels, charcoal, graffite, sanguine chalks and watercolors.
5) I mostly make fantasy art (sometimes horror and macabre), and even my portraits of normal humans or scenery are imaginary. I like to create things, forms and landscapes from my mind and I no longer use visual models except for some studies.
6) Currently, I only make fanart from characters or creatures from books, not from films or TV series. I do that because in this case you have more freedom to give them your own style from vague descriptions. I'm a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft and you may find some of their creatures in my gallery.
7) I don't make art for money, but I may accept a comission IF the proposed work is compatible with my style.
8) I have a wide range of influences, from H. R. Giger through Odilon Redon and all the way back to Renaissance. My favorite painters include Redon, Jacek Malczewski, Goya, van Gogh and Dali.
9) I do not put my political or ideological views in my art. Not explicitly, at least. But I'm a leftist, anti-fascist and vegan (though I don't like the way most vegans make activism).
10) Finally, I'm really thankful when someone enjoys my artworks. I'm also looking for good art and artists to watch and talk. There are many wonderful people in this site who I really admire.
