Jared bending down to hug a person was definitely worth waiting in the cold rain for.

smallhorizons inquired:

i'm unsure if you've responded to this kind of question before, so i apologize if i'm being redundant: in your drawing process, what are the initial steps you take towards composition/the figure/etc? do you sketch out some sort of rough lineart to get a feel of things or do you start with a rough painting and then refine from there? also, i just wanted to say - you are treated terribly by many people in the SPN fandom, and you don't deserve it at all. you seem like a truly awesome person.

euclase:

I usually make a sketch first, like a thumbnail. Sometimes I collage the references right in Photoshop and play with composition that way.

And then I make a line drawing. Like this:

And then I block in color like this:

And then I slowly refine.

Here’s an older example:

LOL sorry it’s all Cas. He’s basically the character I used to teach myself this stuff.

Anyway. <3

A sensational breakthrough: the first bionic hand that can feel
The first bionic hand that allows an amputee to feel what they are touching will be transplanted later this year in a pioneering operation that could introduce a new generation of artificial limbs with sensory perception.
The patient is an unnamed man in his 20s living in Rome who lost the lower part of his arm following an accident, said Silvestro Micera of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
The wiring of his new bionic hand will be connected to the patient’s nervous system with the hope that the man will be able to control the movements of the hand as well as receiving touch signals from the hand’s skin sensors.
Dr Micera said that the hand will be attached directly to the patient’s nervous system via electrodes clipped onto two of the arm’s main nerves, the median and the ulnar nerves.
This should allow the man to control the hand by his thoughts, as well as receiving sensory signals to his brain from the hand’s sensors. It will effectively provide a fast, bidirectional flow of information between the man’s nervous system and the prosthetic hand.
“This is real progress, real hope for amputees. It will be the first prosthetic that will provide real-time sensory feedback for grasping,” Dr Micera said.
“It is clear that the more sensory feeling an amputee has, the more likely you will get full acceptance of that limb,” he told the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Boston.
“We could be on the cusp of providing new and more effective clinical solutions to amputees in the next year,” he said.

DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN REALIZE HOW AWESOME THIS IS???
TO DO THIS MEANS WE CAN FINALLY STITCH AXONS (LONG PART OF NEURON OR NERVE CELL THAT TRANSPORTS SIGNALS FROM JUNCTIONS BACK TO THE BRAIN) BACK TOGETHER
DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW IMPOSSIBLE THAT WAS? TO ALIGN THE DAMAGED AXONS BACK TOGETHER WAS IMPOSSIBLE 
WITH THIS BREAK THROUGH YOU COULD EVENTUALLY WORK UP TO GIVING THE ABILITY TO WALK AND MOVE AGAIN TO THOSE WHO CUT THEIR SPINAL CORD IN AN ACCIDENT THIS IS BEAUTIFUL
THIS. IS. AMAZING.

Also: Cyborgs.

New stretch goal added with 19 hours left. We’re close to the first stretch goal. Due to popular demand poly-amorous relationships will be implemented but only if we reach that stretch goal. If not then it will not be planned until further notice.
Thanks guys, so close but it’s not over till it’s over anything can happen :)

I am SICK and TIRED of people objecting to seeing women using their breasts for what they are actually for. BREASTFEEDING IS NOT VULGAR OR OBSCENE.

I support breastfeeding all the way, even if it is in public.

""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///

Yes, goddamnit(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blondeAnd literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and suchSo please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.

Boom de yada

Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”


Look at all the diversity! It’s so pretty!
