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 also have the version with grey tones, but I think I prefer the previous one. I'll leave it here just the same 🧜🏽‍♂️

También tengo la versión con grises, pero creo que prefiero la versión previa, solo a línea. Os la dejo por aquí también igualmente 🧜🏽‍♂️

Esta fue la segunda sirena, también 2017. Tinta y lápices azules.

Show thread

This was the first mermaid I ever drew for . 2017 was also the year I decided to stop being afraid to draw, thinking I was not good enough, to pursue my career as illustrator proudly and unapologetically.

Esta fue la primera sirena que dibujé para . 2017 fue también el año en el que decidí dejar de tener miedo de dibujar, de pensar constantemente que no era suficiente, y perseguir mi carrera como ilustradora orgullosamente.

Este año no tengo tiempo para hacer , pero voy a publicar en este hilo sirenas que he hecho en años anteriores para que las conozcáis por aquí 💜🌊

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*

[Spanish/Español]
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! 💜
