Artist | Student | Varied
Hi, I'm Heart-of-Amethyst (or AmethystHeart on other venues like Livestream). Many people just call me Ame online.
I'm currently a graduate student in a biochemistry program who loves doing art on the side, to keep me sane. Art and science have been strong passions for me ever since I was little when I used to draw golfers with my grandfather and collect astronomy books so that I could know everything about the universe. I also love combining the two in order to further the education of the world on the wonders of chemistry and biology.
As an artist, I have mainly a "manga" illustration style. I love bold varying lineart and color. Though I'm not classically trained, I've taken college level art classes in drawing (including figure) and color and design. I love learning new techniques and finding different ways to utilize my tools to make what I see in my head. I dabble into various mediums for fun though my true love is markers.
I also love writing, and am planning on creating a manga, entitled Omega which takes place on a planet far away with fantastical creatures and magic. Though still in development, pictures of the main character, Anna, can be found in my gallery.
You will find much of my recent gallery filled with commission works (which are currently closed) but also abundant in Sailor Moon fanart. To this day, Sailor Moon is my nostalgic obsession and inspiration for the style I have today.
I hope that I can share my love for art and science with you here on DeviantArt. Due to my heavy course schedule and research time, my posting is limited here on DA. I appreciate all faves that are given to me, however, I do not have the time to make individual thanks for each fave. However, I do my best to reply to every comment and give thanks for every watch.
When I'm not on DA, I'm usually constantly updating the world on my opinions about art, science, pop-culture and other nerdy stuff on the Twitter. Follow me @ HeartOfAmethyst
