Hello everyone, half-way done with the semester so I thought I'd bring an update to keep you informed as to what I've been doing.

My semester has been going at a steady pace. Statistical mechanics is a sadly broken class with some redeeming parts to it. Object oriented design is an easy workload with little coding involved. And Nuclear physics will be ending for me after Spring Break. After it ends, I'll be returning to my research.

I did attend my 6th anime convention last weekend at Naka-Kon in Kansas City and went as Reimu from the Touhou canon. It was an incredible time and got a few of pics with other Touhou fans! If you want to see them, I'll send them by request.

I'll probably continue my drawing at some point in the near future. I did have a Higurashi pic I stopped with about a month ago. There was also a request given to me that involved Faye Valentine and Alice in Wonderland. So chances are I'll pick either one of them up in the next month.

I'll also be doing some shifts at the end of May at the PHENIX detector in Brookhaven, New York. It'll last for a week, and I'll estimate it to be quite fun! Since I've passed both the qualification exams last year, I'll be concentrating entirely on nuclear physics research.

Stay Safe! And remember if you have any ideas that you think might inspire me, don't hesitate to tell me!

United States
I am a graduate student in physics at Iowa State University. As of this moment I have completed my Bachelor's in Science in Physics and I'm currently working as a TA (teacher's assistant) while doing graduate classes at Iowa State University.

If you want to know my guidelines for commissions or requests please scroll down a few paragraphs.

I like physics, period. It's one of my favorite subjects, and I'm enjoying every minute of studying it while at college. And most of the time the drawings here are nerdy with references to all things science associated. Some of them are sketches, some of them are photoshopped colored versions of sketches. Just to let you guys know, you will not fully get the idea behind these nerdy pictures unless you know what the fundamental forces of nature are. And I'm not talking about earth, fire, air, and water. I'm talking about Gravity, Electromagnetism, Strong Nuclear, and Weak Nuclear. If you want to learn more, just ask me! I love to explain stuff! Again, this is me being a total nerd, so for right now just try and see these as four girls who are avatars of the four fundamental forces of nature. Enjoy! :)

Right now the writing is kind of on hiatus, and I don't know exactly when in my life I'm going to pick it up. However I do want to pick up where I left off which was with two wonderful girls on the purple planet of Alpha Centauri.

***Re: Commissions***
I have been noticing an increase in people giving me requests over the past year or so. So now I'm going to list out some parameters for some of you who wish to have me do something for them. I won't ask for a price other than your patience. While I am joyous to see you people want to see me do some artwork for you, please keep in mind that the artwork is a hobby, not a job. My job is researching nuclear physics and working as a teacher assistant. If I don't have time to work on something in my free time, I don't have time. So here are the parameters:
-No fetish artwork. By that I mean no sexual fetishes.
-No grotesque or gory artwork.
-No bodily fluids or solids involved.
-No fanservice or sexualization.
-If it involves my own physics OC's, in addition to the above it also needs to involve physics concepts in a strong way. That's been the impetus behind their drawings since their conception. If I don't have enough room within the parameters of the request to do something with physics, then the request will be declined.
-I have not done that much fan-art of published characters, so I really don't have anything against it. However if he/she/it is from a series that I haven't watched or read, I probably won't feel as motivated.
-I have little to no experience with drawing animals.
-Not so much of a parameter, but there have been people in the past who have thought that their original characters may seem too complicated. Complexity is irrelevant for any commission that I do. All that matters is if the bar has been raised enough so that I can learn.
-You like cute things? I like cute things as well. If I think your commission sounds cute, it's a guaranteed hit.
Also, if you're giving me llamas, I'm no longer sending out thanks. Why? Because comments on artwork are a lot more valuable than a useless badge that does nothing and represents nothing special.
