I was bored..

This GIF is such a beautiful manip. I can’t stop staring at it forever.
I watched 1 at home + 2 in cinemas twice this week alone. While robynhoody and I rewatched the first film on rental before going on our voyage to be splashed in an absolute joyful treat of dragon-racing, adorkable banter, surprise!-unbearably-hot-Hiccup (jesus that flight suit), BAMF!Astrid and holy shit can we talk about Toothless? Yes, I will, later on … I noticed the small details *potentially spoilery hereon* like Hiccup’s chin-scar. And all the interactions between Hiccup, Toothless and you-know-who becomes so much more heartbreaking knowing the fallout of the second film. 
I wept like, twice, for each viewing of that moment …

don’t look at me
I made the mistake of watching the spoilery trailer a couple weeks before walking into the cinema (I was following animationtidbits, who I’m fairly sure had uploaded a spoiler-free edit of it at some point, but then I ruined that luck – I’m probably not gonna watch trailers for films I’m interested in from now on). It gives away some major plot developments and in general, spoils a lot of the unique world-building elements, and I was miffed about that – though I can understand their effort to reel in as many viewers as possible; I still disagree with that method. Some of us don’t want to be spoiled. 
But one aspect of the publicity I was impressed with was some of the sneaky details in the impressive promotional posters. It played out in the climax of the sequel and I realised they had hinted at it without me even knowing. I love that kind of foreshadowing, when it clicks later that you’ve seen this before, but you never quite placed as much value on that piece of information, so when you finally understand it, it makes me howl my fangirl anthem (no words by the way, just unintelligible yip-yowling). 
Ensue: a whole different kind of crying

shut up I appreciate subtlety to a fault okay
So: Toothless – you – absolute gift of a goof-dragon.

Look at this dork (( GIF set via x ))
'nuff said, I believe.

Pacific Rim is back for more! A sequel has been announced with a tentative date, so set your clocks for April 17th, 2017! And in the meantime look forward to more comics and an animated series!

Do you know what it’s like to be unmade?”

Is there a petition for this and if there is where is the mailing list

Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.

#can you imagine if we left these 4 guys alone in the top floor of stark tower for like a month #or even just a week #SHIT WOULD GET DONE #we’d probably have interstellar travel in 3 days

i’m not a science expert. i’m not even a science novice. but that’s so interesting that these four would come up with interstellar travel when none of the 4 above are qualified as far as we know? reed richards in the mcu is just listed as a physicist, peter parker could only be linked with engineering + genetics, tony’s engineering, bruce banner is physicist in the 616 but i believe just radiology in the mcu.

know who IS an astrophysicist though?

know who has actually manipulated travel between realms?

Protect your art career by Stephen Silver

Do not take this lightly. Get a contract and expect a deposit. I’ve made next to nothing my first two years out of college and a lot of that was due to the fact that a few companies and independent clients literally stole money and time from me.

Do not let companies or individuals take advantage of you. Do not take speculative jobs that will only pay you if the completed project does well. They are looking to get free art from someone who is talented but wasn’t taught the business of art. Do not agree to be paid less than minimum wage for your skills (and that’s for labor. don’t forget to factor in cost of materials as well). You are a professional with marketable skills and deserve to be treated as such. Do not sign away all your rights to an image because that $50 looks really good right now.

You have a responsibility, if you want to be a professional artist, to learn about copyright laws and publication rights. You have the right to demand a client respects your abilities and rights as an artist. If a client has a problem with that, that should be a red flag that they are not worth doing business with. Any client worth their salt will be happy to see a contract (it does protect you both) and will not have a problem with compensating you for your work.

Artists need a guild….

i held off reblogging this for so long

if you’re good at something, never do it for free.

Hello! I just wanted to say that I went to the Edinburgh Art Degree Show today and your work was absolutely stunning! I was wondering how you managed to find the time and effort to fill all of those sketchbooks?
erarlumo erarlumo Said:

Oh thank you~! (▰˘◡˘▰)
As long as I have a sketchbook on my person, I will draw whatever looks aesthetically pleasing or conceptually intriguing, and I’ve vaguely categorised each of my sketchbooks - one of them will be catered more for loose sketches, whereas another might be for refined (in my case longer than ten-minute) sketches. I’m a chaotic mixture of tidy and messy, so there’s no law written in blood or anything I follow by. 
I made it a habit to draw as soon as something caught my interest, so it isn’t a special effort to keep filling page after page, and I definitely enjoy eliminating white space. It’s like a game. But I do literally scowl at blank pages. My nemesis! :D 
Time-wise, I’ll prioritise whatever idea/image comes into my mind or sight. That way, I refuse to feel awkward even if I’m with company (I use the ‘artist and writer at work here’ excuse anyway and nine out of ten I get away with it). I shan’t go on any longer, or I’ll never stop ^^ Thank you for your question and hope that answered what you were wondering!

What if there are actually multiple souls in your body but you’re the most powerful one so you have control over your body and the voices you hear in your head are just the weaker souls talking to you.

and maybe people with schizophrenia don’t have an assertive soul so all of the souls are fighting to take over

both of you write a book together

writers are people who have acknowledged and made friends with their extra souls

did you mean: the Hybrid Chronicles?

This makes me incredibly happy. I hope somebody GIFs this.

I’m so proud of cute little K, so glad she made a comeback. `)

Then I read to the real end … (´)╯︵┻━┻ I knew you were alive bab~y!!!

Asker knightmaree Asks:
Hey there~ Thank you for makin' a request! I can make a KHR edit for you, if that's okay? I jus' wanted to ask if their was any character in particular that you wanted to see? Or if you want it to be a group shot, or somethin' like that :3

I adore the Namimori Trio (Tsuna, Gokudera & Yamamoto). I would love to see them compared with their badass mode x everyday (goofy) faces; or in general just Tsuna ❤ in HDWMode would be lovely ^^

Callous Skin on a Rider’s Hands

Cute little finished sketch of a boy and his big furry ride around the world. In other versions of this I have the beast as a dragon of sorts. I did two and a half pages of a comic with these two once, but I might continue it…
