Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
You can call me Tara for short, I really don't mind any creative nicknames.
You may see some signatures on older art that says "SD" which is the acronym for Sapphire Dragon or SappheirosDraco, my old account.
Anyways! So about me. My real name is Kyle, but most people tend to call me Sapphire, due to my old username. And of course, my fursona's name is Katiki. So many names!
I'm a 17 year old artist that lives in California, and I plan to go to an art school here. My main focus is character illustration but I would love to learn digital animation. I use a Wacom Intuos4 Small tablet and Paint Tool Sai to draw.
I'm still fairly new to art, and I appreciate every watcher and pageview I get, and it means a lot to me when you guys favourite my stuff!
If you want to know anything more about me, don't be afraid to ask.

"Lately, whenever I feel down or I'm not having a good day, rather than asking others for comfort I've found that giving it to others who need it helps me even more. On tumblr I've been sending positive anon messages rather than anon hate, and on Deviantart I've been sending hopeful messages to anyone in a bad situation. Knowing I helped someone have a better day helps me have a better one in return.
If we all took a moment to send someone a kind message on a less than perfect day, I believe that most of us would find ourselves lacking the stress that everyone seems to be under lately."
I encourage you to spread this message.
