Here's a reconstruction of T-Rex that I quite like because its so fucking chunky. T-rex had a deep powerful chest, and enormous neck muscles. And based on skin impressions either mostly or entirely featherless.

But feathers are ancestral to the group like in Guanlong a small, late jurassic tyrannasaurid from before Tyrannasaurids had an open top predator niche to fill

Honestly I’m actually *good* at math.

I work out problems of space and volume really easily because I can mentally visualise it.

Same with addition using shapes drawn or in my head.

I don’t do very well at math when the aim is showing my working for no reason other then to prove I can follow orders. In what are v neurotipical favored ways of working out a problem.

I remeber as a kid I *loved* algebra. I loved the concept, playing with letters as values and meanings.

I utterly hated the joy sucking lessons that taught me to solve the equation *this* way. Often a way I found hard, difficult and unnatural to the simple ways I’d made up myself

‘A Mathematician’s Lament
by Paul Lockhart‘

“The first thing to understand is that mathematics is an art”

“Everyone knows that something is wrong. — The only people who understand what is going on are the ones most often blamed and least often heard: the students.

They say, “math class is stupid and boring,” and they are right.”

An amazing article, especially as someone who had always thought he hated math.

i haven't done any pixel art in a million years so heres some.

I love it when birds do the neck thing. They’re like scrunched up and fluffy then—

—their neck extends to twice their body length like a dart.

It’s somewhere between adorable, hilarious and alien

Mild lewd mention startrek or yellow alert for blatant gay subtext 

There are good critiques of tv cartoons shows then there’s people who don’t like a thing but watch it to be angry.

This is a bit silly

Character design thoughts (long) (the basics) 

Realising yr frounting is like

‘Okay I want a turn I’m here’

‘...wait. Oh I’m here I guess that explains a lot’

The oldest known mammal species to evolve on Earth was a small shrew-like creature known as Juramaia sinensis which lived about 160 million years ago. Descended testicles are a mammalian trait thought to have been present in the earliest mammal species. So it's quite likely that anything 160 million years old is literally old as balls.

Thoughts on finding bugs gross

Not liking bugs:


Mentioning killing bugs or how gross they are to someone talking about how much they love bugs:

being a dick

some old work form 2012, i shared this like late last night

here it be again!

Please stop giving people shit for not writing image descriptions. Typing can be hard enough for some of us as it is, having to type twice as much or even more than the toot itself can be a hellish prospect and we don't/can't always use accessibility devices.

In general, the illustrations I've made where I sit back and work on tonal study first, THEN colour it, are the best. But it's not my favourite way to work.
