In my gallery you can find art ranging from scientific and SF&F illustration to abstract with a smattering of photography and writing in between. Enjoy!

Here are the works I've seen on dA that I found astonishing, something that tends to be not that easy.





Hopefully one of the more productive community-oriented efforts stemming from #buildabetterfaketheropod. I hope those of you approached by the administrator can exercise forbearance regarding the pertinent recent bout of querulousness over Brian Engh's modest proposal, but that exercise, with time, has have given Lediblock2 a better appreciation for those that like their speculative fiction with a bit more inventiveness. That said, I'm sure the more conservative  imaginings will also have their place there.

Journal History


Renato Filipe Vidal Santos
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

I am a skeptically inquiring secular humanist of a materialist and modernist bent with a lapsed Roman Catholic upbringing. Thus, for all intents and purposes, I'm a pragmatic atheist.

I tend to have a life, now in sabbatical as I prepare for job hunting, mainly in the Earth and Life Sciences areas, and, to my chagrin, I am a procrastinator. Hopefully these will be fixed in the next 100 years, though the latter is something I'm working on constantly.

Finally, I am always interested in artistic advice and if you want use my artwork here's the rules. You can also commission me. Tips via Paypal at Dracontes(at)gmail(dot)com are welcome as well.

These are my contacts:

I posted the link to the article on FB but it seems that you never saw it..? Or did you? I may be…

I did see it, but in between all the stuff currently preoccupying me, I didn't find anything opportune to say about it yet. Well, at least I can say the credit you gave is appropriate.
