A new community and portfolio website service for professional artists.
A great site for inspiration! So much amazing art it blows my mind!
vital reminder that you’re far too important to ever be worthless. you’re the stars in the sky, you’re the galaxies above; you’re never meaningless.
Speedpaint? Inseng you are getting better and better. This is higher quality than the art you were doing when I first met you, it’s super impressive and it makes me very happy to see you improve like that c:
holy broken VHS tapes, batman. THANK YOU! Yeah it took like, not even an hour, so I suppose it counted as a speedpaint! :D
If you miss this eclipse, thats cool because it’s the first in a series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as the tetrad.
This marvel will repeat itself three more times in six-month intervals, ending in September 2015.
Miss those, and you’ll have to wait until 2032—33.
did a trade with THIS LOVELY PERSON and drew the amazingness that is the Chronodweller
BEAUTIFUL CREATURE, THANK YOU
Dragon Moles, not to be confused with the more hideous but less dangerous Mole Dragons, are nasty digging creatures about the size of a large housecat that have a penchant for ripping up clothes and leaving giant holes in peoples yards.
The Moon Goes Red Tonight
Are you in North America? Do you like staying up late and staring up at the sky? Yes? Then I have good news!
You can catch a total lunar eclipse Monday night, in all of its dusty-red glory, from just about anywhere in North America with a clear view of the night sky. The moon will enter the darkest part of Earth’s shadow (the “umbra”) at 1:58 AM ET, and remain there until 4:24 AM ET. At 3:06 ET, the moon will be completely darkened by the Earth’s shadow!
Except that the moon won’t be completely dark. During a lunar eclipse, the moon turns a dusty shade of red. Why is that? You can thank Earth’s atmosphere.
To understand the red color of a lunar eclipse, it’s best to see how Earth would look from the moon. Check out this shot of Earth eclipsing the sun taken by Apollo astronauts:
See that halo of light around Earth? Our diffuse shell of air and dust bends and reflects a portion of the eclipsed sun’s light around the planet and onto the obscured moon. And since only the longest wavelengths of light make it through our atmosphere without being scattered away by the air molecules (the same reason that sunsets are red), the moon is bathed in crimson! Here’s a video I made about that atmospheric color show.

Some things I started this week. These works are currently not finished. Two on top are pieces from original work. Others are Opal inspired Energy Beasts. Gonna finish these soon!
Your designs are getting cooler and cooler, friend! Your energy beasts especially are really neat. Keep up the great work!
