    About

    My name is Aldo Requena from Argentina, also renowned as Valgorth by fellow partners, and operator of this artistic weapon called Hammerblaze.

    In the spring of 2008, I created Hammerblaze as creative solution to provide graphic art and web products for the Heavy Metal and entertainment industry. My broad design skills allowed me to reach across into many fields from hit albums, to large websites, tour events, advertising campaigns and apparel designs. My design projects include such names as Lost Horizon, Black Majesty, Skiltron, Jaggernaut, Paragon, Martin Walkyier and many more. Also various renowned web magazines and record labels such as Metal Forces Magazine, Metal-Rules.com and Vic Records commissioned me for making fantastic images for their business and clients.

    I also specialize in character / creature design and fantasy art; from concept and pre-production to final composition with a focus in comic books, video games and previs for films. You can view my portfolio here: www.aldorequena.com

    Today, I continue to create original content and provide designs for clients around the world. My goals remain the same as the day I took this path: strive for creating art that can inspire passion and emotion for many years to come.
