All of your likes (already given and to come) are most appreciated, thanks a lot for your feedback.

I have always been drawn to photography. I do not consider myself as a professional, it's not my job, that's why I do not use techniques to take pictures.
I stop the time with my heart and my feelings if something speaks to me, I immortalize it and try to tell a story with my own visions. I'm really attracted by Macro photography, it's a place where we are able to discover the world with a lot of different creatures. But at this moment I don't have a macro lens to give me the opportunity to make it.

About the graphic designer :

I entered the "creative world" during my childhood. Dreamer, I still have my head in the sky. Myths, legends, fantastic creatures, ancient civilizations and love stories told by my mother, I develop an affinity with the imaginary world and wish to become a painter. But this area does not provide an easy and comfortable life. After discovering computers, I started a new course in graphic design where I learned to use Adobe software and some programming languages ​​to create websites.

During my studies, I discovered Digital Art (using photomontage) on Deviantart, a major creative community, which I joined in 2006. In 2008 after many hours of testing and practice, I found my format, my style and create under the pseudonym of Darkyria Design, symbol and reflect of my art and personality. A beautiful mix between dream and reality, black and white, heaven and hell. It is under this nickname that I collaborated as a book cover designer for publishing houses, private authors, events agency… I had also created tutorials for some creative magazines.
Today, I prefer to say goodbye to Darkyria Design and work under my real name because my creative world is broader than digital art and illustration.
