Wow, happy 15th birthday, DeviantArt! :party:
Here's my #deviantartistquestionnaire 

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Apparently I signed up 9 years ago (eek!), but I was not all that active until about 3 years ago.

What does your username mean?
It's the name of my business, How Many Dragons? It's based on a hand-drawn poster that I started many years ago, where I wrote 'How Many Dragons?' in big block letters and then started filling in with tiny dragons, each one doing something different. I eventually lost the poster before finishing it, but I ended up making a successor:
How Many Dragons? by HowManyDragons
Anyway, I thought it was a memorable name!

Describe yourself in three words.
Creative, intelligent, grumpy

Are you left or right handed?
Right handed

What was your first deviation?
Pink Dragon with Amethyst by HowManyDragons
I originally created this account to use as a backup gallery for the dragons I'd made up to that point. So I pretty much dumped a bunch of photos here, then abandoned the site for many years. xD

What is your favourite type of art to create?
I love sculpting (obviously), but I used to draw a lot too. My artistic interests include dragons, fantasy, dark elves, and grumpy adolescent boys. xD

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Those pretty digitally painted background/scenery types of pictures. I've always wanted to make a comic or graphic novel, but my inability to draw anything that isn't character related has always stopped me in my tracks. ...and not practicing is definitely not making me any better at it. <_<

What was your first favourite?
Goof Balls by Lou-Pimentel
These little guys still make me smile whenever I wander through my Favorites

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Artisan crafts, especially clay sculptures and needle-felted pieces. I love seeing all the amazing things that other people craft!

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
That's a tough one! I think I'll ping :iconvonborowsky: because not only am I a huge fan of her dolls, but she always leaves the sweetest comments and I love conversing with her.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
It would be so cool to hang out with some of the other sculptors that I admire, like :icondragonsandbeasties: :iconnever-mor: :icondustysculptures: :iconapostacyart: :iconescaron: :iconvonborowsky:. Gosh, the list just goes on and on. We could have one big art jam session, it would be so much fun! *u*

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
:icondragonsandbeasties: is kind of my hero and a big part of my decision to push my sculpting skills instead of my drawing. And sculpting and running my business is my full-time job now, so it's been a major impact for sure!

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Clay, a few hand tools, and lots of shinies!
My Tools and Workspace by HowManyDragons
This picture's a little bit old and I've moved since then, but this pretty much shows the tools that I work with on a daily basis.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
At home at my work desk, just because that's where I get all of my work done. But otherwise, I find museums of all kinds to be super inspiring.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Water, Air, Earth, Fire: The Elemental Dragons by HowManyDragons

Receiving my first Daily Deviation really stands out in my mind. It came as such a surprise, and I got it right before leaving for a trip to China, so everything was really chaotic at the time. The positive response from everyone was amazing and overwhelming. I think that removing that DD footer strip has really affected the way that people see and respond to Daily Deviations now, and I think that's a real shame. I mean, I used to look at them quite often and now I only look every once in a great while when I remember. :< Ah, what a sad note to end this journal on, sorry!

About Me






HowManyDragons / Lindy
Sculptor / Digital Artist / Graphic Designer


Hi there! I'm Lindy, and I like to make little dragon figurines. I use Premo polymer clay for the most part, with the occasional foray into other brands. I sculpt, then bake my creations in the oven to harden them. All dragons are then signed and sealed with a gloss glaze. I do the occasional detailing with paint and mica powder, but for the most part, my dragons get their color from the clay that I use. My sculptures average two inches tall.

I do draw too! However, I have (questionably) split my work across two DA accounts. Clay dragon and convention-related goods reside here, while my (abandoned) 2D art can be found at FlykyrSkysong. If you're interested in behind-the-scenes type stuff, you can take a look at my Facebook page too!
