Linda Kindt
My name is Linda and I'm a 22-year-old girl from Finland. I'm studying at Helsinki University major in Finnish Literature and minor in Comparative Literature. I also work as a freelance reporter for the local newspaper, draw comics for Finnish taekwondo magazine 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 knights in shining armour. As literature student as I am my bookshelf is filled with fantasy novels (rather than literature classics) and I can't even count all the times I have seen The Lord Of The Rings movies.
Artwork in this account is mostly consisting of photomanipulations I have made during past few years. If you are interested, read more from About Iribel and F.A.Q.. For my digital drawings, comics and stock art, take a look at my other accounts:

:bulletblue:In My Life:bulletblue:

Last two weeks have been really tough. I'm trying to enter the university of Helsinki and I've been reading for admission tests like crazy - and finally they're all done. However, despite of all that work I'm not very convinced that I'll make my way to the university. There were huge amount of applicants competing for those few student places - and even though I did quite well in the tests I'm not sure at all if that is good enough. :P Anyway, I'm so glad that I don't need to hammer contemporary poetics or media studies into my head any longer, now I'm just waiting for the results. Come what may, at least I've tried. ;)

So - now that I've freed myself from books - I'm back in dA. It wasn't completely happy returning though - I got a note in which I was informed that my work All Because Of You was removed by staff as a violation of the deviantART copyright policy. As I understand, one of the stocks I used contained copyrighted non-stock photography without the permission of the original photographer. I was told it wasn't my fault, but it still pisses me off. That piece was a gift for a special person - makes me wonder if I'm ever again going to use dA stocks made of stuff. :disbelief:

Well, maybe I can try to remake that manip with some other background... For now, I'll try to answer all the comments and take a look at new deviations as soon as I can. I really appreciate your support - and after all it's good to be here again.

Love and best wishes,
Iribel :heart:

I just stumbled upon your gallery and saw your beautiful (beautiful? Awesome! :o ) Nightwish art - hence I wanted to ask if you'd like to contribute them to the official facebook Nightwish fan art group, hosted by Plamen Dimov, Paulina Medepona and Eeva Nygren, collecting art for next year's Nightwish days exhibition in Kitee :)

Here's the link:…
I'd be happy to see you there! :)
