Hi! Many asked me to do it - and so I did. I created an Instagram account and you can go there here. I try to post there some wips and other stuff I won't post here so if you enjoy my art, you should follow me there. 

You can also find me on my Tumblr

Well that's it, see ya there!

I'd just want to feel home somewhere... Now nowhere's my favourite...

31. Are you interested in anyone?

33. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
Lake, I'm scared of how deep the ocean is and what lurks in the depths...

34. What's your type?
Type? As in...what? I don't understand, I'm so sorry...

36. Camping or outdoors?
Isn't it the same thing? Tell me if I'm wrong *slight blush*

Okay there you go.... Tristan really is one depressed poor little boy. :'D I'm supposed to tag four people but I don't really know who to tag, except for Tinalbion and I'm not completely sure if you've done this already xD But anyone who feels like doing this is welcome to do so and if you want to, you can tag me so I can read them!

Hi there. I have been thinking about starting a Tumblr blog dedicated to my art for a long time now, and after refreshing my old blog and removing everything unnecessary I started posting from a clean table. So if you want to follow me there too, here.  I'm very happy if you do! ^^ There will be more sketches and wips and other stuff that is not as official as here. (If you can call this official xD)

Yup. That's it!


1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Just 11 months now, so I'm kinda new to this, but I have been visiting dA since elementary school ^^

2. What does your username mean?
Well...I don't exactly remember how my username came to be, BUT I have always wanted to fly and rise up to the sky where there are no people around and everything looks different. Have a different perspective on things. And I don't mean flying like on the plane or anything like that, I'd literally like to fly by myself xD Also, I have always been very ambitious so the phrase "claim the skies" is like an order or suggestion for myself to claim my own place in this world and make room for the things I love. To create and broaden my own skies and see them like no-one else sees.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Creative, melancholic, passenger.

4. Are you left or right handed?

5. What was your first deviation?
This thing right here xD V ftw
 Ideas Are Bulletproof by ClaimTheSkies

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Well, original for starters. As I released myself from an artblock that held me prisoner for five or six years, I was so happy when I actually started drawing my own stuff without looking any references, that I began to cry (yup, I am a HUGE cry baby at all situations xD ) When it's about genres, I'd say fantasy and sometimes even sci-fi (I've been into some space stuff recently). I still mostly draw traditional art because that's what I'm most familiar with, but I'm very eager to learn more and more about the digital side as well. And I try to unite these two forms as often as usual, that's when it's most fun \o/

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digitaalllll. Definitely that.

8. What was your first favourite?
This one, because Tiger&Bunny is still da shit and always will be and Elffi is awesome :>
 Barnaby Brooks Jr. - Tiger and Bunny - WIP by Elffi

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Well anything that I find amazing or has a strong impact on me. Or something that makes me smile like an idiot :D Sometimes I favourite friends' works just because they're awesome and they deserve it.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Ah, now this is an easy one. tincek-marincek, I love you. She (or they) is just amazing and her works keep leaving me breathless. Plus she shares awesome and very helpful tutorials and always answers to everybody, I think that is so cool! There are also many others, but I guess one I should mention is shilin because I absolutely adore her works and I really enjoy watching her streams, they are always so cozy and she's giving amazing tips and communicates with us 'noobs' :'D

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Aaah, well probably tincek or DestinyBlue, she seems like a really nice and cool person :)

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Well I think I wouldn't be lying that much if I said that shilin inspired me to start writing and drawing my own comic ^^ Also many more have helped and encouraged me each in their own way.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Photoshop CS6 and traditional art tools, mostly pencils and watercolour.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Definitely home, but sometimes I feel inspired in random places and that's why I keep my sketch book with me wherever I go. Also sometimes I start taking pictures for reference in the most awkward places haha ^^'

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Well um, since I have been here for so little time and I struggle to find the time to submit and be active here I don't have that many memories, but I'm happy I joined and I love it when I get to discuss stuff with people and see all the amazing (how many times have I written amazing during this entry) art here ^^

Happy birthday DeviantArt!

So close to the infamous sweet sixteen, are we.
About a week ago I happened to start a blog. Yeah...a blog. Why? Because I am about to start posting my very own web comic named Elysian - Dona eis requiem. I thought that writing a blog would keep me motivated and I could post some sketches and not so official stuff there, so I don't have to spam here. 

I have never written any kind of blog so this is all new to me and I apologize if the start is horrible. ^^' I don't have any idea of how often I'll be posting but well, I have to start from something and see where I'm gonna end up. Anyway I am glad if anyone wants to take a peek every now and then, here's a link to the blog:

The appearance of the blog is also horrific but worry not! I intend to make a proper background as soon as I have the time and also make some other changes as well.

See you around!
The spring is coming everyone! Gyaaaaahhh! I'm so pumped because I have so many things I want to do and some of them are already done but I can't show them yet but my hype doesn't go away...! God damn.

The point is, although I have a crap load of stuff to do, everything's gonna be okay. Daijoubu.

Really quick entry because I noticed the last one was a bit after the New Year so...yeah :'D

Onward, soldiers!
A bit late but Happy New Year to every visitor and my few but wonderful watchers! You're awesome. I have been, yet AGAIN, a bit inactive here due some issues in my life but that doesn't mean I haven't been creating anything. No. I might put my works here as soon as I got the time, I actually did some as Christmas presents too.

But anyway, I feel a bit better now and just wanted to let everyone know they deserve an absolutely amazing 2015!

Keep it up, folks.
And it is yet again the middle of the night here and whoops I got a sudden urge to write a journal entry. I know for some these entries don't really mean anything and very few people actually write them, or not that often at least. Well neither do I, but I have always loved to write and I see dA as a place where you can freely express yourself in anyway you desire so why not take advantage of this side of the coin as well.

I went through some dark and deep waters but the moment my head popped above the surface and my brain got some air I realized a few things. No, these aren't probably anything new and yes, I might forget these the moment I go to sleep. However, I love the feeling that you can have the experience of great understanding and trust on your actions, even if it is just a momentarily feeling. And even if those dark waters are surely going to pull me back again.

I have had some rough time finding my place everywhere I've ever gone and the same phenomenon seems to continue. This doesn't bother me as much as before, though, because I have started to accept the wandering and lost side of me. I've set my gaze to the journey instead of the destination or goal. It's okay not to know where I'm headed. It's okay to be insecure of what to do. It's okay to fail at things. And you know what? It's actually okay to be socially awkward. No kidding.

I have been quite inactive here on my behalf, but believe me there is an enormous pile of sketches and wips waiting, more like screaming, to be continued. I'm super hyper excited to learn more about everything and I feel very accomplished by just playing and fooling around with different tools and techniques, not just by completing a piece of art. Of course that is satisfactory beyond words, as well.

I read from somewhere that you should imagine yourself as a plain canvas every morning and paint yourself a beautiful day, which I really liked. I have also picked a very nice quote from Albert Einstein, the genius himself: "Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will get you everywhere." I completely agree with this one.

Have a nice and creative week!
Aaand it is one of my favourite days of the year once again. The fifth of November. As some might guess, I love the movie V for Vendetta and everything related to it and thus this day has a special meaning to me.

It is 2:46 am here where I live, but I just have to write a few words about this terrorist, or freedom fighter, whatever you want to call him :'D I fell in love with the movie the very first time I saw it and watched it twice a day for a week after that. I still watch the movie every fifth of November and tend to celebrate V and every other revolutionary characters as well. Recently, I made the terrible and yet the best possible decision to watch an anime called Zankyou no Terror which, how ever so conveniently, told the story about two young terrorists, Nine and Twelve. These two hit the spot even more than V and they are among the best and dearest characters of all time, for me.

Now I do not know what it is with terrorists and me, but something about their ideals and backgrounds touches me. They have been abused and treated like objects, and they want a revenge. And yet they do want to harm as few people as possible and bring justice to everyone. They act brave and calm because they seem to know they are going to die at some point, but before they go, they want to change the world - even if it is just a bit.

I was, yet again, supposed to post something revolution related but oh look, there's nothing there. I am once again making promises that might take a little while to redeem but! I assure you there will be plenty of revolutionary art to come.

Remembering runs through both the movie and the anime as a collecting thought. In Vendetta, the poem about Guy Fawkes tells everyone to remember the deed he never finished, but more importantly his idea of freedom. In ZnT the two boys, especially Nine, keep remembering the facility they were kept in and eventually Nine asks Shibazaki to remember them. As V said, people are the ones giving power to the symbol and without them the symbol is meaningless. There is no point of doing anything if no-one will remember it. So, whatever the pain, grief, problem or struggle you're dealing with, I want you to remember that there is more than there seems to it. There are other people who think exactly like you and there are those who have had it much worse. Remember who you are, who you want to become and more importantly: remember the path you have come. It doesn't have to define you or drag you down, just accept its presence and use it as a tool to shape the wider road you have in front of you. Make everyone remember you.
Yay it's Halloween! My favorite holiday after Christmas. Been reeeally busy but boy am I excited to learn more about digital painting and also get better in traditional form as well. I have so many ideas buzzing through my head! I was planning on making something publishable (is that even word? Well it is now, accept its presence from now on) but! What a surprise, social life and school interfered. Goddammit.

Well, at least I was able to edit the appearance of my deviant page although it is not the prettiest in town, not even in Halloween Town :'( Ah well. :'D

Have a terribly nice Halloween!
Why, oh why! is it so hard to keep the balance between work and play? Although sometimes I can't tell the difference :'D A new week is soon to be at hand, and I'm so glad I had it in me to post two more drawings from the past. I am of course feeling bad for not posting anything fresher, but that doesn't mean I'm not working on anything! ^^

I have at least thousand and one ideas swirling through my mind but for some odd reason they like to run away and hide when I have the feeling I'd like to pick one or more of them and start scribbling or sketching. Oh well, maybe if I try to lure them out with some blank pages and new pencils, they will co-operate...
After many years of needless hesitating here I am, joining the oh! so famous DeviantArt which popularity is well-deserved, I imagine. It will take some time to get on the train, so to say, but I'll do my best. After all, what good is an artist if one can't share ones creations to the whole wide rest of the world?
