On DeviantArt, I post drawings. I like drawing both in realistic and manga/anime style. By the way, drawing is not my principal artistic occupation. I mainly write books, short stories and poems. I still haven't published anything; but I've been writing since the age of ten, and my dream job would be, of course, the one of the Writer. I attended at a Liceo Classico, and then graduated in Modern Literature at University. I'm currently studying Cultural Journalism, because if I won't be able to make a living by my works, I'd like to write on magazines. Anyway, I'm sure I must write to live
On magazines, I'd like to write expecially about Music - and Literature -. Music is another great passion of mine: I play guitar, both electric and classical, and I also really like to sing. I hope one day I could have my own metal band, because my second dream would be the one of composing Music along with some good friends, and travel together to play all over the World.
Another great thing would be being a professional photographer, as I also like very much taking photos...there's something touching, in making moments eternal through a gesture of your fingers...it's a kind of magic.
I'm here on DeviantArt because, as I love drawing since I was a child, I also love to watch other people's beautiful Art. Art, in every manifestation, is what gives a sense to my Life. The key to read all the Dimensions of our Universe, and a great way to travel through them and reach glimpses of Knowledge. The vision that breaks every wall between dreams and reality. The only Love you can be sure that, as long as you dedicate your passion to it, will last forever.
I have Asperger Syndrome, that is my gift and my damnation.
Personal quote: "Only becoming conscious of your limits you'll get the power to overcome them".
Facts about my deepest Self: I'm pansexual. Probably also genderfluid. Anyway, I'm born female and I'm used to be considered as a female, so you can use female pronuouns for me too. But if you call me only "you" is the best thing . MaskOfFlaminTwilight is ok too, of course, or Masky, or whichever nickname you like.
I declare myself agnostic and I am for a good amount of my time; by the way, I'm strongly fascinated by Paganism and Neo-Pagan religions. I feel them very close to some views I have of Nature and World, and I can't exclude I'll definitely become a Pagan someday.
Languages I speak: Italian (my motherlanguage), English, French, a bit of Spanish. I know also Latin and Ancient Greek - due to my studies -. I'm very interested in learning Japanese, and I know many words and some basic expressions and grammar in this language, plus hiragana and katakana quite well and some kanji.
