Hi, I'm Mar del Valle, a queer nonbinary illustrator from Spain! (she/they) 🌈 I love to draw powerful women and queer characters, often with a dark, occult, mythological touch. I also have a soft spot for paganism, witchcraft, vampires, angels, demons and fae.

I'm new on Mastodon, and I'm so happy to be here! 💖

I may have not expressed what I meant very well because English is not my mother lenguaje, but you answered that it was possible to do what I described, so I'm contacting you now to ask whether you could show me how to do it. Thank you so much for your assistance!

Hi! I'm reaching you because I use and yesterday you answered my four stars review on Play Store in which I mentioned that I loved the app but that, as an illustrator, I really missed a feature that allowed me to choose the crop that I want to show as preview when I'm posting an image, and that it prevented me from using the app more.

Today's gender is tiredness and the sound of someone walking on snow.

I've been so busy working at the bookstore, exercising, doing errands, housework, and some other stuff, that it's been more than a month since I last had the chance to draw, and believe me when I say that I'm DYING to devote some time to my characters again. My beautiful, powerful, sexy, tender characters 💖✨ *insert eager and joyful animal screech*

Entre mi trabajo en la librería, ejercicio, recados, tareas domésticas y demás, hace ya más de un mes que no tengo ocasión de dibujar, y en verdad os digo que me MUERO de ganas de volver a dedicar tiempo a mis personajes, a mi gente hermosa, poderosa, sexy y tierna 💖✨ *insertar chillido animal, anhelante y gozoso*

Mmmh, I have a question for my followers, more experienced users than me or whoever feels like answering:
Could you tell me if I'm doing this thematic thread thing right? I mean, am I threading my tooths correctly?

I am pretty new here and I am in doubt... Maybe you can help me, @Curator?

Thank you so much in advanced for any help any of you can provide! 💜

Tengo una conexión muy fuerte con la música, mientras trabajo y en mi vida en general. Gladio es el grupo que me gustaría tener, y por eso creé una lista de Spotify que reuniese el tipo de canciones que Gladio compondría y tocaría. Si os interesa, aquí está el enlace: open.spotify.com/playlist/05q7

Entre ellas, esta es la canción que sonaba mientras dibujaba esto, una de mis favoritas y la que mejor encarna la intención y el ambiente: open.spotify.com/track/123Vh2T

I have a strong connection with music, while I work and in my whole life. Gladio is my dream band and, because of that, I created a Spotify list which gathers the kind of songs Gladio would compose and play. If you are interested, here's the link: open.spotify.com/playlist/05q7

Among them, this was the song that sounded while I drew this, one of my favourites and the one who best embodies the mood: open.spotify.com/track/123Vh2T

There are two more versions, one with Dorcas wearing vinyl and the other with both of them nude. And yes, the last version shows no tattoos, they cover a lot of skin and I’m still designing them ✨

Hay dos versiones más, una con Dorcas llevando vinilo y otra en la que ambes están desnudes. Y sí, no hay tatuajes en la última, cubren un montón de piel y aún están en proceso de diseño ✨

: GHOUL

La Lore is the other half of Gladio, Dorcas' best friend and her ghoul by choice. He dyes his hair green, blue or pink. His gender expression is fluid, and he's gay as hell.

La Lore es la otra mitad de Gladio, el mejor amigo de Dorcas y su ghoul por decisión propia. Suele llevar el pelo verde, azul o rosa. Su expresión de género es fluida, aunque sus pronombres son "'maricón', cari".

OMG @mardelvallearts joined Mastodon! 😍😍😍

They are (among other things) the incredible illustrator who made the cover for my game "Deeds, not Words" (and some illustrations for some scenarios I have written):

Last I created some art based on this "Vampire: The Masquerade" official prompt list. I love vampires and I love this game, so I've kept working on some more illustrations. I'm starting this thread to share all of them 🖤

El del año pasado hice algunas ilustraciones basándome en la prompt list oficial de "Vampiro: La Mascarada". Como me encantan los vampiros y adoro este juego, he seguido trabajando en más ilustraciones. Inauguro este hilo para compartirlas todas 🖤

En cuanto tenga tiempo, responderé todos vuestros amables comentarios y publicaré más ilustraciones. ¡Solo sed pacientes conmigo si tardo un poquito! Mientras, que tengáis un día estupendo 🌻
