So yea, I changed my username.

This is something I've been wanting to do for quite some time.
For those of you who have ever asked; IRIRIV was some type of decomposition of a Tolkien-monogram-sort-rip-off-thing I used as personal symbol for like a month when I was 16/17? and created this account. Ever since, my Deviant Account became a pretty big thing (for me at least) becoming one of my main means of expressing myself, showing my work to friends and public and even as a major source of professional work. Eventually the name stuck and when you are not a premium account it's pretty much written in stone...
Point being the name carried some problems: It was unpronounceable, so that it required to be spelled or directly linked at all times. It was hard to remember with precision, so even people familiar with it would have a hard time googling it or referring it to friends and colleagues. And probably worst of all it was more famous than me. My account and me are not titans, but on it's way to 11.000 watchers, it's certainly biggish and having worked in several fields and projects, rather often I stumble upon my work outside of DA or learn that people has already done so, yet no one makes the connection that IRIRIV is me.
I considered it a reasonable step in my professional career to make myself sure that people who has seen my work knows who I am. I also considered the opportunity of using a nickname or artistic name; maybe Rodir, as some of my friends call me, which I think would also help English speakers be able to properly pronounce my name : P.
But probably my real full name should do the trick.
Anyway, next step is probably creating a facebook page for my art. I have some followers that have added me there and though it's always really charming to meet the people who enjoys my work I'm.. not very sure that I could call them "friends" (even though some of them certainly became so!) so that sort of mixes thing up. So stay tuned for that too, I'll let you know when it's up.
I think that's it. Thanks for reading anyone who could possibly have been interested xD
So have a nice day everyone!

Man after spending at least and hour or maybe two looking through all your artwork, I am damn well impressed. Your art is just legendary and I hope to see more on here soon.

Awesome dinosaur work sir! Truly superb, capturing a combination of great physical accuracy and a sense of fantasy that makes them seem larger than life.

Gotta love good dinosaur art! :D

Hello Rodrigo, just curious, do you post your art anywhere aside from deviantart? I was wondering where I might be able to see more.

Honestly this is my main source of media sharing... thing. I have largely considered making some other kind of page.. I think a facebook page would be the minimum, best and easier probably so I think Ill do that. But on the other hand I think that If id do any of those things Id probably load it with -less- stuff than what I have here, since I've gotten quite better since I joined DA and Id rise my standard of quality to my current portfolio level.
