Hi, you can call me Sky or Paula c: [she/her]
I´m 20+ & a self-taught artist from Europe!
I specialize in drawing original characters! I do both, sfw and nsfw art. My focus are anthros, ferals, dragons and humans. I draw a huge variety of things basically. ^w^
My favorite thing to draw however are my personal characters. They help me to deal with boredom and bring me the most joy. On some days I do nothing but art because it keeps me alive ┐(‘~`;)┌.

My "Identity"

The character I identify myself the most with online and offline is Lui. He´s a very very special comfort character and a figure I started developing way before I even got into social media. You will see me drawing him a lot, use him as my icon and more. He is not my Sona however. I don´t really have interest in having one and every past attempt at making one ended up in a disconnect with the character. So I simply love to use my comfort OC as my "representation" but he is not me/the way I personally am. I use him to escape into a different world sometimes..daily

Artist Background..

From 2012/13-2015 I started drawing digitally for the first time using my Nintendo 3DS XL. Colors!3D was what mainly brought me into digital art and OCs. My first actual "OC" (that I labeled as such) was ChocoBii. I used to draw him so so often but unfortunately, I decided to delete most of the artwork back then. I went under the name "RainyBii" for a short time until I found my new and permanent name "Skykristal" which I identify myself with.

Back in 2015-2018 I was a traditional artist with my focus on fanart and cute chibi critters for the most part for a few years under the name skydiamond_art. (You might have seen my work before) Later then changed back to what I did before, digital OC art! At one point I completely lost interest in both, traditional drawing and fanart and spent my time drawing my own creations again which is one of my favorite things to do til today.

At some point, I started to notice that there´s a market for commissions and YCH which was something I was very interested in. Making money with what I love doing the most was always a dream for me. So, I started to slowly get into it. My start was everything but easy, but after a few years of struggling, I found my place and started to get noticed more, and got my first customers, which was super exciting. I´ve come a long way with my art journey and I´m very thankful for everyone who supported me and still does!

How I started (2012)

I have also drawn before this time, however It wasnt anything serious or something I still have photos of. PS: cringe.

Series..

I´ve watched the following series or.. I´m still watching them today. These are tiny reviews.

Timeless (2 seasons)

I found this one very very addicting to watch & well made. Loved the story & the characters all fit quite nicely into everything. I cared about every single one and was currious what happens next. Might watch again sometime.


Lost (6 seasons)

One of my all time favorites I enjoy rewatching from time to time. And let´s not forget this song which won´t leave your head for a good week after watching.


Riverdale (6 seasons)

I´ve watched all 6 seasons and it was kinda meh. Not my favorite series to be honest. I found the overall story very poor and the characters & dialog not well made.. Some parts of the series were actually kinda enjoyable but with later seasons, it feelt more and more like a fever dream.


The Vampire Diaries (8 seasons)

aka the series I watched 20+ times. I´m honestly very tried of the series now after watching it so many times. But why did I do that? Right because I absolutely love this series. I know half the script from memory lmao. Season 4 and up are my favorite ones. Yea.. I´m a huge Delena shipper. No fights please.


Smallville (10 seasons)

Smallville is actually one of my favorite series of all time.. and I like how it´s 10 full seasons long. Now, most of it are filler episodes in my opinion. Especially the first few seasons (1-4) seem slighly repeatitve but it gets a lot more interesting in later seasons. I wouldn´t say you can ignore the first seasons though. They also tell important parts of the story and a lot of it is fun to watch.


The 100 (7 seasons)

The 100 is a series which I quite injoy for a bit, however I ended watching it after a few seasons ( I think season 4 or 5). It just became a little to agressive for me/ the characters personalities is what mainly drove me away. I find the overall story telling is not bad at all. But it´s not really my kind of series.


Supernatural (15 seasons)

Supernatural is one of these series I restarted a few times before finishing it. I always lost interest or wanted to watch something else instead. I think the issue is the massive amount of seasons. I´m someone who watches a series from start to finish before starting a different one, otherwise I forget the story quickly and I´m kinda lost. However Supernatural is a fantasic series in my opinion. And it has one of my favorite character combos. Seeing Dean, Samuel and Castiel fighting agast the evil was always very entertaining. I think the later seasons were my favorite ones in terms of story.

Code

This entire website is coded from scratch, well that and with the use of a css framework. In my case, it´s bootstrap! Along with a couple of things I made myself. I´ve been coding since my DA days. Around 2015 or so? I tried doing html using tables back then. After that, never touched html again or even css. But a few years later, when I started using Toyhouse, I taught myself a lot more over time. Because I wanted to either edit or create layouts for my characters. Toyhouse runs on Bootstrap as well (an earlier version though) and because of that it has become the most comfortable for me. But css is what I mainly enjoy doing. Messing around & making layouts, styles & effects...

Edit: as of 15.06.2022 I started using codepen to code ^^ idk why I wasn´t thinking of that sooner.
I only use the code editor on neocities to work on my site. Reason for the huge amount of updates lol. I make weekly backups though!

HTML and CSS are the only ?languages? I have experience with. If you see anything else on my website, I either used a tutorial or premade scripts.


I code on my laptop using windows 11 & vivaldi. I however also check with other devices as well as linux I have installed along with windows to see if all things work how they should. If you should face any issues please don´t be afraid and let me know!

What do I draw with?

I was always an android tablet user. It´s the only thing I´m comfortable with since I got into digital art after the usage of my Nintendo. And what do I use today? Yes, an android tablet! But I upgraded to a Samsung Tab S7 (wifi) in the past. Which is my very first tablet that isn´t low range. + It comes with an S pen. A rubber pen stylus is awful compared to the S pen experience. Which is what I used for many years on older samsung tabs (I started with a Tab 4 (7.0) ) If you are also an android tab user and are looking for something, I can recommend that!!

Software?
I use LayerpaintHD since 8 years. I can´t get comfortable with anything else. And I also don´t need to. This app works fantastic for me and I learned everything with it and have my own brushes and settings. How did I found this app? Honestly I don´t remember. But it didn´t got recommened to me. I most likely scrolled trough the playstore in search of a drawing program I could enjoy and somehow sticked to this one. I also use Ibis paint to make final touches such as filters and text, which my regular program does not offer, unfortunately. For Animations and everything that moves, I use either flipaclip, Ezgif or Motionleap (for effects). More rarely I also work with AnimeEffects for tween animations.
