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.



Friends admin wonders about the point of it all.

So beyond all the issues pertaining to my livelihood that take precedence over most community efforts I can part-take in, there's this failure of communication I don't understand and consequently can't figure out a way to tastefully resolve and frankly leaves my charitability tattered and frayed far too quickly. So unable to be agreeable enough in this situation most of the time I move on to other things.

Let's see for how long I can avoid that tropism this time around.

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:

While I wish them my best, and I already have contributed literature and commentary, disposable income is in short order these days.
