Ame's Future Projects

Will update soon :D

Artist Wishlist

Since I never keep a record of things in real life, I'm gonna put my commission wishlist here, since it's ever growing.

Also, if you are not listed here, I may have forgotten.

Heart-of-Amethyst's Profile Picture
Heart-of-Amethyst

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Welcome to the page of Ame. Ame is a full-time graduate student who studies proteins most of the time, but sometimes also makes art. Her style is evolving, so expect to see some pieces that don't line up well as she tries to develop her own personal style.

For work-related and time reasons, Amethyst no longer accepts new commission requests and has removed all the related commission info from her gallery. So please don't ask. She also requests that you do not ask her for free art, to enter your contest or other freebie related things. She likes giving art to people on her own terms and enters contests when she feels like they exercise her artist brain.

Amethyst is hoping to work towards a PhD in real life so she can do lots of science. This means she's also super busy and stressed. If she doesn't thank you for faves or doesn't reply to some comments, it doesn't mean she didn't see them or doesn't care. She's grateful for every comment, fave and watch. She will always take the time to thank new watchers. <3

I exist on other internetty places where you can follow my daily crazy of science and art.

The Infamous Art Block

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 13, 2015, 9:13 AM
I've been attempting to write this journal for like a week now, not wanting it to sound sob-story or an ask for pity.  It's really not.  It's more of an explanation.  But I think I've hit it; the semi-permanent art block that throws people off for months of not actually wanting to draw anything.  I mean I want to draw, but it seems the moment I pick up a pencil and open my sketchbook, my brain switches back to science and teaching, and all the stress encompassing my life right now.

It's probably just the stress of candidacy and having to do all the teaching I honestly don't like doing.  There's a level of guilt sitting in the back of my mind and it was probably because one of our post-docs said "anything that isn't research related is a waste of time."  Which is true, I suppose.  But the "anything" part started to mean anything: friends, family, teaching, candidacy, art, hobbies, sleep.  You name it, and for the past two months, I've felt guilt for wanting to do it.

When I went home to spend time with my then-best friend from undergrad, I felt guilt that I went to do that.  I felt guilt for feeling shitty after I broke up that friendship and went home a second weekend because I couldn't handle going back to my apartment and spending an entire weekend alone.

For now, DeviantArt has no spark anymore.  I come on here, and naturally I have no new notifications because I haven't put out any artwork.  It's not that I don't like you, the people, because you have followed me off here and that's great.  And I really hope to get back to the art.

To tag a quality deviant: And you’re it! 

Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
