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!
The majority of what I post is dragons, if the username didn't give it away~ Further, the majority of said dragons are kids from my story-in-development Nest of Hearts, which will be in part a slice of life, so my art reflects such. Occasionally I submit older dragons, but most of these are from when I draw for other people, so it won't be reasonable to expect this from me consistently.
Besides that, I occasionally submit work from my college classes when applicable, mainly stoneware sculpture, as well as other things I find myself working on. In the future, I intend to work on other stories, not all of which will focus on dragons, but that probably won't be soon. Additionally, it is likely that pages of these stories, as well as NoH, won't make it onto this site, since I have plans to make a site of my own for my stories for various reasons. However, there will be pages where I practice my comic skills which will be posted, for the sake of improvement.
I usually post something new every 6 or 7 days, though my work and school schedule can cause delays in that schedule.
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 those interested in art trades or similar things, here's a journal that I post my availability for such. I try to keep it 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.
2018 was something, for sure- though it wasn't that bad to me. I found a lot of good stuff in the last year, and it's surprising that the last half of it whizzed by so fast. I might have finally figured out what I'm going for as far as careers go, which is exciting, and if that doesn't work out it'll be a valuable skill. Still need to watch a thousand or so shows of interest, so not much progress there, but that's probably one of the better areas to fall behind in. Artistically it has been a huge success, I'm excited about how my sense of lighting and anatomy are developing! Here's the first piece from last year and the first piece of this year (exactly a year apart actually) for comparison:
Also, I reached 200 watchers, literally double of what I had this time last year, so I'm feeling pretty accomplished about that! Thank you everyone who's dropped by and stayed to see what I make, its motivating to know I have so many people who enjoy my work I'm gonna open asks again to celebrate, since I had a lot of fun with them last time, but not yet- I still have a few more gifts to put up, and I would want to start the asks right away~ Let me know if that would interest you all!
Anyways, I suppose I'll put up some resolutions as well, since its a new year thing.
Practice comic pages more
Actually do a couple pieces of concept art for locations
Open commissions hopefully
Keep doting over my cat
Only the first and last are guaranteed lol
Make it a great year, thanks for reading

dA Guide: Text Formatting
This is just a quick text formatting guide for dA. My goal was to make a simple html guide for easy reference. Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work! (Certain codes won't work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.) :'D
I provided "working examples," which might make the codes easier to understand because you can see them in action. (Keep in mind that when you type html tags, the effects won't be visible until AFTER you hit "Preview" on your comment, journal, etc. I only made them visible for the purpose of demonstration.) Enjoy!!!
The following codes can be used in
comments, deviation descriptions, journals, and profile page widgets.
This will make bold text.
This will also make bold text.
This will make italicized text.
