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.

Some more context on my Facebook profile.

It's nice to have a private place where you can bounce ideas off similarly-minded people and generally be sociable but I've come to realize, as for other Web 2.0 modes of interaction in the past, that there's a risk of that becoming all you do. So after a year or so testing the likes of Facebook and Discord as chatting platforms I've decided Skype is the chosen one (for now at least) and it seems to me that the first chat group I've joined on there has an activity level I can keep up with.

So all invites to join chats elsewhere are preemptively declined (as are for other venues like forums and sundry sites). Thank you for your comprehension.

Renato Filipe Vidal Santos
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Portugal

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.
