A Very Long Tag

I snatched this from :iconrosyan: since it looked like fun :D

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.

2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
Neverwinter Nights 2. :D Is till love the game, but nowadays The Elder Scrolls stuff has taken over my gallery.

Linda Kindt
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
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.

You know, I've always been on the fence about commissions, and whether or not they are a waste of cash.  But, I think it's time to take the leap and give it try.  When are commissions open?  
Isriana Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm currently swamped with university work, so unfortunately I can't really give any estimates just now.
NeverMore-Neverless Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2015
Just hoping to know when commissions will be open as hoping to get 1 or 2 Skyrim pieces done :)

So, what kind of character are you making for Fallout 4?  Backstory, personality, etc?
FullmetalHeart20 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2015
You know what I've realized? Before joining the Normandy, Liara had never been in a real fight in her life. So what about Ash/Kaiden teaching her how to fight along the lines of this training montage.…

Always pleasant to see your pictures after a long day. Cheers! :)

wolfsilver Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2015
Hey, do you own a PS4?  I've been debating on whether or not to preorder fallout 4 for it or the PC, and I thought I'd ask around for an opinion.
Isriana Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, sorry, I don't own any consoles so I cant help with that.
