Commission InfoGeneral Guidelines:
1. What does your Deviantart name mean and why?
Isriana was actually a character in one of my original fantasy stories I used to write long time ago. An auburn-haired warrior/priestess, in fact. Seven years ago (good god, I can’t believe it has been for so long) I was looking for a username for a new DeviantART account and tried a few different alternatives, all of which turned out to be already taken. So I started going through fantasy character names I had created, and Isriana was my favorite out of the options available, so I went for it. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but for some reason it stuck - now I couldn’t even think of changing it.

I'm a digital artist and fantasy fan from Finland. I'm studying at Helsinki University major in Finnish Literature. I also work as a freelance reporter for the local newspaper, and take art commissions every now and then.
I love reading books, writing stories of my own, watching movies and tv-series, playing games and (of course) creating art. I enjoy all kinds of stories in general whether the medium is music, visual art or literature. I also love anything and everything fantasy related. It has been so essential part of my time for so long I can't even remember the time when I wasn't dreaming about fairies, hobbits and dragons. As a literature student my bookshelf is naturally filled with fantasy novels (rather than literature classics, though) and I can't even count all the times I have seen The Lord Of The Rings movies.
I always find new things to get excited about, and I often dive pretty deep into whatever it is that I love at the moment. This account is a place where I'll let my fandoms and original characters (and probably my own stories, too) run free - I hope you enjoy what I'll have to offer.
