MaskedDragonLin's Profile Picture
MaskedDragonLin

Artist | Hobbyist
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 try posting something every four days, though sometimes it can take up to a week. I like to dabble into a lot of different kinds of art, 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 it's very beginning stages, so there won't be pages of it up for a while.

I usually take sculpture classes in the spring, so a lot of 3D art pops 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. Once I do some more personal art, I'll get straight to though~ 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'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.
Interests
   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)

Hit and Miss 3
    Looks like third time was not the charm in this case, and the strange fish has made another clean get away! Has these successful escapes made it over confident? Will its pride be its fall? Find out on the next episode of dragon ball Z!
    It looks like I'm running out of nice sketches for these, so don't worry, I won't indefinitely be posting close ups of Hyūra's chompers! There is just the last part I've gotta work on, and then I can go about other things~ In this, I was focusing on how the surface of the water looks from under, bubbles from the point of impact, and showing the presence of a current. The fish are a bit small in this, but that doesn't bother me so much, and I like the progress I made here.

Did someone feature me or something??? I usually get 10-25 views a day, and today I got 905??? What???

Seriously, if someone knows and told me I'd be super appreciative.
Hit and Miss 2
    Second part of this series. It's pretty darn similar to the first I know, but the point was to focus on the setting this time around. As can be seen, there's a background now, and I'm actually pretty happy with it. I addressed several issues about underwater that I was unsure about and the river/lake bed has dimension. I still intend to make another part, but it'll be a little less repeat in posing and will focus on different aspects of the setting.
    Story wise, it looks like someone decided not to give up on her fishing endeavor :) And specifically that one weird fish, though apparently she's going to have to try harder than that! Maybe if Hyūra went for a different fish it would be easier? We'll see what she does next in the third part!

Hit and Miss 1
    I realized that I haven't done any pieces in a completely underwater setting, so I decided to make something to fix that! And during the process, I realized I don't really know what I'm doing, heh, so I decided that I'd flesh out a few sketches of this that I liked in particular. I hope to improve on the background and other environmental aspects through each one, so it'll be a little art series of a sorts :) I'll link the pieces together. In this one, I found a way to do bubbles that I'm very happy with, as well a touch to shading, but the background is pretty much non-existent, so I'll try to fix that in the next one.

    Hyūra's probably trying to try her luck at fishing, since it is a means of hunting, though it looks like she was a fair bit off :) We get to have a good look at those teeth for sure. Looks like she also has something to improve on!

no problem, I really do love dragons and snakes, they like my go-to creatures for creating great stories, or ideas. I hope to commission you one day :D

Same! Whenever I doodle it ends up being being a dragon usually, I wish I was fast enough to make all my good doodles full pieces. I'll keep that in mind, I'm flattered! I currently am having issues with my paypal, but once I fix that I'll finalize my terms of service and open them :)
