because going through page after page after page of over-sexualised, erotic and basically pornographic images of gardevoir, i wanted to make sure it would happen with Mordreds one. So i looked at some creatures without noses and found inspiration in the Martians from John carter, and they seem to work.
This is Carabosse.
And she is having none of your shit.
early concept, but i like the more alien feel alot more than just…a girl with a hat on. its a powerful fairy psychic, and it deserves to be treated as such. im also going for a kind of jellyfish-dress feel to the lower half, but im still working on that.
Also, as the Fairy world is known for gold, i decided to have her Gardevoirite mounter on her forehead on a crest (seeing as its made of thick bone, it wouldn’t have hurt) and it also keeps her hands free instead of having to hold it all the time. plus…it looks pretty.
so yes! alien monster fairy. have some of that. and no more Gardevoir porn, ta.
Good job pet store. That is what’s up.
I worked in a pet store for 5 years, and every Easter our rabbit sales went up exponentially. I can tell you from experience that almost half of the rabbits we sold were brought back in as early as two weeks after they were adopted. Some people let them loose, and some people send them to a shelter. People need to understand this very statement, and truly think about it. A rabbit is a big commitment, and should not be a fad or seen as a compulsory pet.
I cannot like this anymore than once, but I sure as hell hope people will spread this message, because it’s important as hell. I used to hand out care sheet BOOKLETS to everyone looking to adopt, and it prevented many of them from adopting in the end.
This goes for any animal, holy hell big underscores and exclamation marks. Huge props to this pet store for trying to put their pets before sales instead of shelling them out like candy.
The shelter here also did this. We went to adopt Vanilla there.
This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)
and they’re so pretty too
Realistic Pokémon Series; favourite three Pokémon per type.
Phew, I’ve only done ten of these in about a year. I have so many more to go!
See my other realistic Pokémon sketches and interpretations here.
Something just for you guys! This is Nuregami from the game Okami! Great game if you haven’t played it before, quite reminiscent of Zelda games!
