MaskedDragonLin's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Hello, I'm an artist who loves fantasy, especially dragons. I'm fine being called Masked or Lin, whichever takes your fancy. IRL I do have a gender of preference, but online I don't care what people think- if it's respectful and I can recognize it as a pronoun, I'm fine with it!

I usually post something new every 5 or 6 days, though my work and school schedule can cause delays in that schedule. I like to dabble into a lot of different kinds of art when I have the resources and utilities to, though most of my deviations here will involve either projects from my college classes or characters/places/ect. from my comic, Nest of Hearts, which is still in the world-building stages, so there won't be pages of it up for a while. Later on, I'll also post art from other stories that I'm working on, though NoH is my main focus.

I often take sculpture classes in the spring, so a lot of 3D art can pop up around that time, though currently I won't be posting much besides 2D art.
**Will yak your ear off about ceramics and stoneware clay if you let me.

A thing I want to say- DON"T give me Core membership. I actively do not want it! If I did, I would open commissions exactly for that. If someone does give it to me, I will attempt to cancel it as soon as I can, regardless of who gives it to me. It won't be personal! I just won't support Core, so be warned.

For anyone interested, I'm closed for trades, since I have a lot of owed art on hold to work on, which is what I'm focusing on for the time being. I have a few request slots open at the moment, but they're only for watchers, and those who are interested will have to search through my journals for them (hint, not all of my journals are featured). Otherwise, requests are for friends only. For more about my art status, look here, I keep it relatively up to date maskeddragonnamedlin.deviantar…

Feel free to message me, I may not get back to you immediately, but I strive to reply to all notes and comments. I'm friendly and like to meet people - however please don't if all you want is free art, as I said, I'm not open for requests from just anyone.
   I wanted to post a journal so that the closed asks post won't be lingering around on my profile, so I figured it would be nice to talk about some of what I'm doing here. Due to Valentine's, work's picked up in hours, so my art is slowing some, so there may be delays in that front- hopefully things go back to normal afterwards, I like having more free time. After I finish the Hit and Miss mini series, which will have a total of four parts, I'll focus on owed art, including trades, requests, and that raffle (no I have not forgotten, I just procrastinate super bad TT-TT).

   In a more exciting bit of news, I'm redesigning a few of my characters! I counted it out and of my 16 main ocs, there were 4 drakes, 1 wyvern, 1 lung (sorta three but really 1), 2 misc builds, ...and 8 drekis. Drekis are what I call "western" dragons (since many other dragons also originate from Europe), and in my headworld, drekis mostly originate from a volcanic area and possess fire/magma abilities. Several of my drekis have this ethnical origin, and a few others have it because of convergent evolution (such as with Fate), but 8 is too much- I'm pretty sure it happened because of a combination of laziness while designing them and a lack of development in world building- so expect to see some changes! My main focus will be on Gimrur, Zruimec, and Kihai, but I very well might do some touch ups on my other kids! If you have thoughts or questions on this, I'd be ecstatic to hear them, so feel welcomed to comment ;) (Wink)

When You Forget Vital Information
    I was working on a thing, and in the process of using a shortcut I accidentally made this and it is an accurate depiction of my life XD Seeing how this won't be how the piece turns out later on, I wanted to save the clip cause it's too perfect lol.

Fate and art belong to me

When you are suddenly compelled to make art of a ship in a show you watched recently in the middle of another project lol.

That being said, I'm gonna skip being on the business end of the shipping war artillery and keep it to myself :)
Before They Wake
     Does anyone remember when I said I'd be doing more art of Ques? I finally did lol, I'm a horrible procrastinator, I know. My original second dragon didn't work out how I preferred it to, so I went with a different option. Also, if you could not tell, I don't work with dawn settings often, so the lighting is experimental.

     The lovely white dragon here is Evaleen, whom belongs to Dragonhawk2112 :) It seems Ques is hoping for the two to steal away for the day before anyone notices, though I'm sure they'd leave a note or something so people don't think she's been legit abducted or something ;) Didn't know what her home would look like, so I did what I thought would fit. I hope I did your gal justice Hawk, thanks for letting me include her, she's cute! It was a lot of fun to work with Ques, I probably will do another of her soon.

Art and Ques'Sireier belong to me
Evaleen belongs to Dragonhawk2112
