Hi dar maties, so I've been thinking about changing my DA name to my real name in an attempt to be more """""profesional"""" (LOL), but my name is normally a bit hard to pronounce and a bit bothersome to type because of my surname mostly for anyone outside Italy and Argentina, (basically think any JoJo part 5 character name and there you go), and yes, MARIO is my middle name, and my favourite food is pizza, I'm not kidding you, I'm as italian as it comes
In any other social media I have my real name (except tumblr where I'm spacefrank, you're welcome to add me and I'll add you too
). Back when I've made my dA account, there was this whole stigmata (really stupid on my part), that I didn't want people in real life to find out I also draw and paint, haha, sounds so stupid now, (I'm a scientist in real life, or at least, I attempt to be one), but I happen to live in a very close minded big town in the north of Argentina. This was a world before facebook and behance and such. Now the older I get, I actually prefer that people consider me an artist than actually a scientist, despite society around me (family and friends included) thinking the exact opposite... so nowadays I actually prefer people see my name when they see a work of mine, instead of seing my works posted on a videogame forum with user "xXx666DarkAVengerOFDARKxXxX69" claiming he made all the stuff (that subject requires a complete different rant).
I'm all about changing my DA name specially considering I never once did a Full Metal Alchemist fanart (I still like it tough) and I prefer to have something more related to myself. But you see, in the "business" side of things, I thought that adding my name, which is a bit long, unpronounceable in english with all the a's and i's and all the vocals except "u", and that makes it hard to search or identify, (except if you perhaps think of ravioles?/ravioli?), so, I don't really know what to do, shorten my name?
