A Word from Amethyst
“Hi my name is Amethyst ( or sometimes Beetle), I’ve been in the fandom since 2008 ( so says my Furaffinity registering date!). I honestly first heard about the fandom from the critical side of the net, but I really liked the characters, costumes and art that the fandom is built on so I decided to delve in.
I’ve loved fantasy stories and shows, monsters, animals and anthropomorpism as a kid, and have been drawing from a young age too.
The fandom is great for interesting character designs, and I also enjoy drawing monsters, body horror and anthro-machines ( Yes, I like Cars. Fight me!). I work a lot digitally but enjoy going back to traditional media when I can.
I’m inspired by folklore and legends, cartoons, monster movies, history, vintage cars, old scifi and natural forms. As for artists I enjoy, they range from realistic surrealism such as John Brosio and Simon Stalenhag back to style-heavy cartoon stuff, like Rubberskunk, Dobescrusher and Haifisch Ehrlich. I also really like old 80s movie poster art.
I fursuit, watch bad movies, collect animals bones and have too many diecasts and plushies. “
