Art-Hermit

Hello there,the name's Cait.I'm currently studying in Game Art and Design, but I'm also an artist and creature/character design enthusiast.This is mostly an art blog for my drawings and various works and doodles.Also serves as a collective for art and writing references,mythology,and the occasional fandom or gaming posts.

For a friend who had troubles keeping track of the different sexual orientations. Sorry for not including all of them, I included the most common ones.

The illustration for Poly, Bi and Omni are just examples, of course.

HOLY SHIT THIS MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE

I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS THANK YOU

ALSO I THINK THIS MEANS I’M POLYSEXUAL? I DON’T FUCKING KNOW WHATEVER M8

this is going to kill my hand jfc why did i decide this was how I wanted to do the hair wh y 

here is a MUCH HAIR tip that will probably make your life %10 easier!

pick any brush u want and freely sketch yo hair

image

ctrl + click the hair layer to select it

image

increment by 1 or 2 depending how thick you like your lines

image

make a new layer under your hair layer

image

fill with desired color

I’m already almost done lining this hair monster but thank you so much for the tip I’ll use it the next time I draw shiroba!

This is just the basics of braiding. If you know these 8 basic braids, you can do billions of differend hairstyles. Here’s a roundup, from top to bottom, left to right. There’s always a link to a basic tutorial and then a few links to hairstyles you can do with that type of braid.

1. Regular, 3-strand braid

My friend Mizuki and I went to a flower garden in Koma (高麗) today. These are known by so many names. Manjushage (曼珠沙華) is the most common in Japan. Lycoris is the scientific genus, and Red Spider Lily is the most likely English translation. They also bloom in white. You can’t pick the flowers, but the garden staff was selling them at the entrance for pretty cheap.

The lycoris has some rather ominous legends in Chinese and Japanese mythology. They often bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, so they are said to have a strong connection with the underworld and serve to guide departed souls to their next reincarnation.

Anyway, they’ve been popping up in anime a lot recently, so I figure it would be nice if everyone knew the symbolism behind the flowers. Also, a bonus orb-weaver. Sorry, I like spiders.

Terraformation of Mars: A New Look
We look at Mars now as a forgotten Red Planet that almost seems barren and life-less judging from our available images and study of it. But study shows Mars was once as ecologically prosperous as our own Earth. But what happened to all of its waters? Better yet why is it so dry and lacking any plants? Once the abundance of oxygen left and the waters froze over or dried off the planet became what it is today. But what if we can in a way reactivate’ Mars? Welcome to Mars, Terraformed’.
About Terraforming
Transforming Mars will be a long and complicated process. But this is exactly the type of subject that interests space researchers like Christopher McKay of NASA Ames Research Center. First, greenhouse gases, like chlorofluorocarbons that contribute to the growing ozone layer on Earth, will be released into the atmosphere. This traps the heat from the Sun and raises the surface temperature by an average of 4 degrees Celsius. In order to achieve this, factories would manufacture chlorofluorocarbons derived from the air and soil. A single factory would require the power equivalent of a large nuclear power plant.
The increasing temperature would vaporize some of the carbon dioxide in the south polar cap. Introducing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere would produce additional warming, melting more of the polar cap until it has been vaporized completely. This would produce an average temperature rise of 70 degrees Celsius.
With the temperature this high, ice will start melting, providing the water needed to sustain life. This water would raise the atmospheric pressure to the equivalent of some mountaintops. While this would be a survivable level, it may still require the use of an oxygen mask. The next step, which may take up to several centuries, would be to plant trees that thrive on carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.

NASA: Terraforming Mars
Terraforming is the process of transforming a hostile environment into one suitable for human life. Being that Mars is the most Earth-like planet, it is the best candidate for terraforming. Once just the subject of science fiction novels, it is now becoming a viable research area. The famed astronomer and Pulitzer prize winner, Carl Sagan, says that there is enormous promise in the search for ancient life on Mars. If life was once sustainable on Mars, it is important to know what caused Mars to evolve into the cold and lifeless planet it is today. With this knowledge, we can terraform Mars by reversing the process.
NASA scientists believe that it is technologically possible at the present time to create considerable global climate changes, allowing humans to live on Mars. But this will not be by any means an easy task. Raising the atmospheric pressure and surface temperature alone could be achieved in a few decades.
This research has strong environmental implications for Earth. What researchers are trying to do involves global warming, a sort of greenhouse effect on the cold planet Mars. Scientists may be able to test their hypotheses about global warming in their attempts to elevate Mars’ surface temperature. Likewise, once theories, they may be applied to our own planet in an attempt to reverse environmental damage done by pollution and deforestation.

Ah mah gosh, ho man. A little shocked but really humbled right now. My piece got into the S: A Supernatural Artbook project that’s got a kickstarter going on right now. The book features artwork from many really awesome artists from the SPN community here and the project is for a really great cause as well. I can’t wait to see the final book though, it’s going to be amazing. Many thanks to the group behind the project. You guys are wonderful people!

LumiLor Electroluminescent Paint

The era of Tron is coming (at least in paint..), :D 

"The LumiLor electroluminescent coating system is a sprayable EL solution that can cover almost any surface with a light emitting paint." 

Here’s the full vid links for the Tesla and the Motorcycle

All you need is a current and it glows. Not including primer or varnish there’s 4 coats of paint - the conductive coat, the dielectric coat, the luminophore coat and a second conductive coat.

  • The dielectric coating is a electrically-resistant, but polarizable coating that reduces deterioration of the luminophore coating - electrostatic fields are still generated, but current passage is limited.
  • The luminophore coat usually consists of a lattice of Zinc sulphide crystals doped with copper. When a current is applied, electrons become excited and get trapped in higher energy states; other electrons in the lattice replace them creating electron gaps that move through the lattice until they reach a copper atom. The difference in bonding allows a spot for excited electrons to drop back down resulting in the emission of green colored light. The color varies depending on the doping metal.Above: Lattice of copper doped zinc sulphate crystals Source
  • The conductive coats provide the charge difference:

When an alternating voltage is applied, the build-up of a charge on the two surfaces, effectively produces an increasing field (called an electric field) and this causes the phosphors within the field to emit light.. ..no heat is produced in the process. Source
