PS Consider putting each leaf of the agave on a different layer yes I do understand this is kind of absurd
Note to self: work on digital agave, test out coloring with better rendered piece to see if that helps my digital painting look better
Test out agave painting in Manga Studio 5 since its painting system almost makes sense to me
Beautiful ‘flowers’ self-assemble in a beaker
With the hand of nature trained on a beaker of chemical fluid, the most delicate flower structures have been formed in a Harvard laboratory—and not at the scale of inches, but microns.
These minuscule sculptures, curved and delicate, don’t resemble the cubic or jagged forms normally associated with crystals, though that’s what they are. Rather, fields of carnations and marigolds seem to bloom from the surface of a submerged glass slide, assembling themselves a molecule at a time.
By simply manipulating chemical gradients in a beaker of fluid, Wim L. Noorduin, a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and lead author of a paper appearing on the cover of the May 17 issue of Science, has found that he can control the growth behavior of these crystals to create precisely tailored structures.
“For at least 200 years, people have been intrigued by how complex shapes could have evolved in nature. This work helps to demonstrate what’s possible just through environmental, chemical changes,” says Noorduin.
Shit I actually really like that sketch I feel like lately I’ve been impressed with my art
I feel like maybe that’s being full of myself but I don’t feel guilty in saying that my art is slowly improving because I honestly think it is
That or I’m getting more delusional guess we’ll find out
But I think it’s the improvement thing
Neet little article
It’s a sketch and not really based on the movie I just doodled it while waiting for that scene to start
Fuck I love that rendition of Ballroom Blitz so much
Watching Wayne’s World and decided to try drawing Cassandra because I think Tia Carrere is gorgeous
I think I got halfway there
I want to try drawing her again, but like… actively singing or something
There’s still a bit of the movie left I might try some quick sketches
I need something to do this evening
Going to bed early?
I don’t even know
Why look at a painting of a historical figure when you can come face to face with one?
