THE IRON GIANT

The Iron Giant Collectible Figure
The 16″ tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.

Harris Hawks (Parabuteo unicinctus) chase down a desert cottontail in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, United States

Oh man this is bringing back wonderful memories for me.. I went to Ireland last year and had the privilege of going on a walk through a forest with one of these guys on my arm (my first ever experience with raptors up close and personal!!). She looked very similar to the bird pictured predominantly in these gifs. Harris hawks are astoundingly beautiful and graceful, I love it.

The skull of the Chinese Water Deer is one of the most iconic skulls out there. 
Like many small Asian deer species, it does not have antlers. Instead the males fight each other with their extremely sharp tusks, slashing at rivals with downward head swings. 
When not actively shanking others, the tusks can be folded back slightly., so they don’t interfere with eating.

Well, so much for doing anything else today… This took up ALL my time. Ugh.

A request from a friend of mine to draw Char’s Zaku in a certain pose. I may still go back and add some slight cell shading to this, but I’ve done too much work on this as it is.. ugh..

Disclaimer: I have not watched Gundam, and have been out of the anime loop for some time now, so this is completely lost on me.. lol

The background and the moon texture are all free-use stock from NASA.

18 Various Kinds of Opals  

When most people think of an opal, they might think of a milky-colored stone containing a rainbow of stripes or flecks inside it.  What many people don’t know is that they are incredibly diverse in appearance, and are not actually minerals.  Opals are a solid, amorphous form of silica, and are classified as “mineraloids”.  Like other mineraloids, such as amber, pearl, and obsidian, they lack structural order, or “crystallinity”. 

From the top:

  • Black Opals
  • Cat’s Eye Opals
  • Dendritic Opals
  • Flamingo Opals
  • Peruvian Pink Opals
  • Zebra Opals
  • Leopard Opals
  • Yowah Nut and Koroit Opals (both have the same characteristics - they merely come from two different areas).
  • Brown Opals
  • Ethiopian Honeycomb Opals
  • Green Opals (Serbian, Tanzanian, and Brazilian)
  • Peruvian Blue Opals
  • Matrix Opals
  • Landscape Opals (Andean and Australian)
  • Mexican Fire Opals
  • Crystal Opals
  • Australian Boulder Opals
  • Ethiopian Ribbon Opals

(Side note - the image backgrounds are transparent, except for the matrix/landscape picture, which seems hellbent on being an asshat, no matter how many times I try to fix it)

Going to pin this up here for reference for xej’s dragon
