Introduceyourself by a humble little human!

in art •  2 months ago  (edited)

Hello steemit people! My name is Claudia and I’m an art student from Venezuela!

Niña luciérnaga_.jpg

(Yep, that's me!)

I’ve been wanting to join steemit for a few years but the idea of facing and interacting with other people truly TERRIFIED me. So today I took my leap of faith and with it, the courage to start this new amazing journey.

If you couldn’t tell yet, I’m a very shy person. That is why ever since I can remember I've explored all the other non-speaking ways to tell what it was in my head.

So I started to draw...

And then to paint...

And then, to write about my drawings and paintings...


And finally, I ended up discovering this new world of possibilities beyond than just words and phrases, all through visual messages.

My paintings started from sadness, after that they developed in joy. And yes, here I am, stuck in joy. Forever, I hope.


As you can see I really enjoy painting about childhood. Because for me its a synonym of dreaming and believing.

Right now I can surely affirm that art is my life. And art is the way.

I’m not afraid to say that is all I know.

All the paintings above are pictures of my original artwork and are owned by myself.

Wow, these are amazing pictures. I just had a look at your Instagram and it's interesting to see how you have grown as an artist over the years. I hope we see more of you in the future. I'd love to see more of your work and maybe even something of you at work.

Hi Claudia! Gorgeous work!

I’m so glad you decided to brave it.

I find myself drifting towards art about childhood, too. I always blamed by interest with animation on an obsession with the “feeling” of childhood.

So lovely to meet you and can’t wait to see more of your work!

God, thank you so much Ashley!!!

Animation is one of my biggest dreams, to be honest! I admire animators with my whole heart, most of all because of their patience, but the final result is amazing.

But now that you mention it, that childhood feeling it's probably the reason why animation movies are my favorites!

I LOVE the final result of animation... the work? Not as much 😆 but I'm trying to learn anyways, I really want to make a short this year.

What's your favorite-favorite movie?

I'm sure you're going to do great, you're very good at it already! I'll be here to watch it with no hesitation.

God, my favorite movie of all times, including all the other possible genres, it's Rise of the Guardians. That movie made me cry out of joy...

What about you? :)

Oh, I love that one so much!! I might watch it now, since you’ve reminded me of it.

My favorite is probably spirited away - but maybe Ponyo. I love EVERYTHING that’s come out of that studio 😄

Hello!! Welcome to Steem! :) I'm a shy person too, shy and introverted. I've been here almost 2 years and it's only in the past few months I've -really- started coming out of my shell, haha!

Your artwork is beautiful. :) I've just given you a small delegation so you can interact a bit more here on Steem, reply to comments, reply to other peoples posts, write another post sharing your artwork, etc. Hope it helps!


Thank you very much omg!!

Being shy is a curse sometimes, I feel you... Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your words and support! It surely helps a lot :D

Magnificent work! Your artistry feels so lifelike and unique. The emotion pours out of each image. Not only that, but I appreciate the way you described yourself in your writing. You seem to have a good grasp on who you are as a person and what gifts you can share with the world. I gave you a small delegation of SP to help you upvote, comment, and post as you grow your work. Welcome to Steem. I look forward to reading more of your creative words and lovely images in my feed 🌱

OH THANK YOU! I just followed you and the way you write is so soft and dreamy as a beautiful lullaby! Even this reply sounds poetic! You also seem to have plenty of gifts to share with world. Thank you so much for your kind words, I'll be here too expecting more content from you :)

Thank you @parchi-guaya for your kind words! I enjoy writing so much and it is such a joy when others enjoy it too. I am glad you dropped by 🌱

You are absolutely talented and I am so very happy that Steemit has someone as creative as you now! I'm looking forward to seeing you grow as the Steemian you are so prepared to be! :) Don't let anyone bring you down and keep on creating!
Mafi <3

We missed you in steemit why not start blogging again?

Oh hello there! That's nice of you to ask. I've been meaning to start blogging again but haven't taken the final decision, I'm still thinking about a way to bring my photography into my blogging and also joining the english-speaking Steemit community for good.
Now, my friend @parchi-guaya here is telling me I should come back and start fresh with her, and well, I think I'll be doing that sooner than later :)

You have been out for 9 months @mariacaffrey and if you would like to do an #introduceyourself post for re-introducing, I would be happy and I believe @brittandjosie would be also to feature it in our Hey! Have Ya Met...? blog...

  ·  2 months ago (edited)

I think they use the #reintroducemyself tag for that I am not sure.

Okay, thanks Sarge (@sgt-dan), we'll feature her with that tag as well.

Don't want her to get flagged for perceived vote-farming. I read somewhere that the introduction tag is only to be used once. I could be mistaken. Just heading off a potential problem. I hate crisis-management. 😂

Thanks @sgt-dan!

A lot has changed, and photography is huge we can help if you want ! Blogging about photography is a great idea @mariacaffrey

I didn't think it would be that much given the fact that sometimes some pictures don't really have much of a description or a written abstract since it's a visual communication, and to my knowledge (not that it's much LOL) Steemit is all about writing. So, I think I just need some creativity :) I could use all the help haha! It's very nice of you

Thank you, beautiful and gorgeous Mafi. This made me so happy and you know it. I'll be here too expecting for you to come back. You're as talented and creative as you say I am, trust me!

Mafi: trusts
Claudia: does her magic
Mafi: comes back

I love you, thank you for giving me the little push i needed :)

Welcome to the Steem Community Claudia (@parchi-guaya)
I know we already met but you need to check these suggestions and take them seriously.
Eight suggestions to consider:
1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and steemconnect,
3. The master password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and
be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own
6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
7. When you open your, in the upper right corner of the page there are 3 bars. Click on those, and then on the "welcome", and you will get a lot of reading material that will help you.
8. Do NOT open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

Thank you James! You were so kind all the time! I'll make sure to follow your advice. Maybe I would need some help with the proper ways of citation, but now I know that any doubt is welcome in the Steem Terminal channel :)

Looking forward to your return to the Terminal Claudia (@parchi-guaya), there is still lots to learn!
Full Steem ahead!!!

Welcome to Steem! Glad you decided to finally join. It’s a pretty friendly and supportive group so try not to be too nervous! Beautiful work and I love your profile line that you love kids ”as a concept.” 😆

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. This place has a bit of a learning curve, but it’s well worth it in the end. You seem pretty versed in some tags & general Steem use already though, do you know a Steemian who helped recruit you?

Hahaha YES. Thank you, thank you so much for the support, I'd be gladly willing to learn, of course!

Yes, I have a friend who told me about Steem and taught only the basic knowledge, I do the best I can haha
She used to be a hispanic steemian but she's not using the platform anymore :)

The realism of your work amazes me. It took me over a year to make my first post as well. 😎

Following with interest.

Oh thank youuuu!

Yes, it's not that easy to jump out of the nest hahaha

I love these pictures! You are very talented. I look forward to seeing your journey here on the Steem blockchain. Best of luck and KEEP CREATING!!!! x

Thank you very much!!

A very warm welcome to Steemit! :):)

Thank you very much! This place looks amazing already!

Welcome to steem, you have a beautiful art style! I look forward to seeing more!

Oh thank you very much!!

I think I've seen you before! I wanted to join the Spirit Animal Contest but couldn't reach the deadline. Thank you so much for being here!

Welcome to Steem, i think that a lot of artists are shy and choose a different than normal way to express themselves. I believe you would like the interaction here, the enviroment is friendly and the community interesting:) So start posting those amazing artworks i saw at your insta account right away,lol

Shared at twitter #posh


Thanks for taking the time to visit my profile. One day in here and I'm already in love with this place!

I am planning on posting all of my insta posted artworks, but I think I needed someone to say it to boost my courage! Thank you so much!

You are very welcome:) Its always refreshing to see new talented artists start joining Steem, looking forward to see them:) Check around, they are a lot of art contest you can take part and various projects you can join:)

Welcome to the SteemVerse Claudia

Thank you so much Sarge! You and your bike were so lovely, I hope we can get more conversations like that in the future :)

I'm hoping you'll be here to see more of my artwork, this warmness of yours is sincerely appreciated! As warm as a Santa hat in January hahaha

Oh, that was not me on the bike! That was @jamerussell 😂. I am flattered that you mistook me for him. He is a dapper gentleman. All us old Jarheads look alike I guess!
