Hi there! Im BlueAnimastic, but you can call me Blue.
I will say this now, if anyone has any requests on tutorials or needs a hand with something please don't hesitate to ask! I don't bite and I love to help out wherever i can
My name is Crystal, and I live in Australia, more specifically on the mid-eastern coast of New South Whales.
I'm currently 18 years old and have graduated high school. If all goes well, I'll be going to university to study some sort of art (possibly illustration or character design) but who knows where the future will take me!
I love drawing (as you can tell ), but I also love singing and playing ukulele. Ive been singing since I could speak, but I've only been playing the ukulele for three years (fourth year this year).
I love horses, and horse riding is one of my favourite outdoor pass-times. Sadly I don't get much time to ride as often as id like though. I used to volunteer at a place called RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association) which is therapeutic riding for people with all sorts of disabilities. Schoolwork and life gave me less time to do this, but I hope to get back into volunteering there soon.
Another thing I absolutely love is books. They are my getaway from the stress of life and allow me to enter other worlds. There's no greater feeling than that for me, the way a book can draw you in and make you feel emotions about something that was created from someone else's mind. Its really quite magical.
Here are some of my favourite books: Warriors-Erin Hunter. Spirit Animals. Wings of Fire. Harry Potter-J.K.Rowling. Wolves of the Beyond. Guardians of Ga'Hoole. How to Train Your Dragon. The Goose Girl.
Im not entirely fond of exercise, and prefer to spend the day curled up at home either reading or doing some sort of craft. I'll almost never say no to an outing though, especially if there's food involved
Favourite movies: how to train your dragon 1&2, spirit stallion of the Cimarron, monsters inc, zootopia, home, big hero 6 Favourite Shows: Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, Miraculous Ladybug, Teen Titans, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

I will admit, in my first few months here on sketch club, I found no shame in tracing. It helped me develop anatomy skills and figure out my own style. I do not claim the full credit for those artworks, and I do regret not stopping sooner. I did it because of my insecurities, thinking my art wasn't good enough. But I'm confident now in where I am, and hope to keep improving and learning
I am not against tracing, but only if it's for learning purposes and trying to better yourself as an artist. And of course the person needs to give credit and acknowledge that they have used someone's artwork to help themselves learn. Tracing purely to feed off the popularity it would gain is wrong.
Shoutouts: ❄️EmmyOwl❄️ is the most kind and considerate person I've met. Her art is gorgeous and she always makes me feel better when I'm down. We've come a long way as friends and I'm so glad to have met her. Wildspirit definitely fits her username Wildspirit 😂 she is probably the most rambunctious and outgoing introvert I've ever met. I honestly can't get over how beautiful her art is, and honestly she must've sold her soul or something to draw humans so well great artist and a close friend. 👑 ɑԵհҽղɑաօӀƒ 🐾 is an absolutely amazing artist. I met her when she first joined sketch club and honestly, the amount of growth and improvement I've seen with her art is insane and I am so glad to have witnessed it. She is an awesome person, and one of my best friends here on sketch club. She is very compassionate and is always there to help out, which I am grateful for. 🌺 Ness 🌸 aaaah where do I even begin? Her art is absolutely amazing and so realistic! And though we don't talk much, the chats we do have are awesome xx Sage Leppänen is such a great artist, those anatomy skills are to die for honestly 😍 absolutely amazing person who is kind and caring and a good friend.
