I probably went overboard with this but… this opportunity was too perfect to let it slide. I know last year’s prompt was steampunk already (and I did make a design for this), but now I wanted to do something more detailed since we’re making less prompts and instead more detailed entries.
I was thinking of Ink as an alchemist, mixing all these colorful liquids/chemicals with each other (and also trying them to see the effects, lol) leading to unexpected results. His lab coat replaces his hoodie, and also I LOVE his goggles. :’D
Error still destroys stuff. He’s like a lunatic with too much explosives. He’s great at blowing stuff up or disassembling machinery in general. Whenever you need something wrecked, he can do this at a rate of 137%.
This month’s Patreon Rewards got a little out of hand, and wound up becoming more detailed than intended. Not sure I’ll be able to maintain this level of detail for the sake of my own sanity, but in the meantime: heeeeeeeeeeere’s Junkrat!
I was hoping I’d get the opportunity to draw Overwatch eventually even though I don’t play the game, and Junker is easily one of my favorites thus far. It was a BLAST to draw him … blowing up an art shop, as requested.
Like what you see? Today is your LAST DAY to sign up for this month’s stretch goal over on Patreon!! If you would like a drawing like this, do check out the information below, thank you!
Raw footage showing the ATF Bomb Squad seeking out the apartment of James Holmes to disarm the explosives he had set up prior to heading to the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, where he opened fire at the midnight showing of Batman; The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 and injuring more than 70 people.

Derived from the from the French word “pet” and Latin word “peditum” meaning to break wind, the petard did much more than expel intestinal gas. It was an early shaped charge that was used to blow down big doors, gates, or palisades when laying siege to a fortification. The bomb usually consisted of a bell or cone shaped metal device filled with black powder. A small hole in the back allowed for the insertion of a fuse to detonate the bomb. By that time engineers had developed all kinds of explosives, what was special about the petard was that its bell shaped design focused the force of the blast in a frontward direction at a single point. This made it easier to blow a hole into a wall or blow a gate off of its hinges.
The job of placing a petard fell to the petard makers assistant. It was definitely not an easy task, as a petardier would have been fired upon by crossbowman and musketeers while attempting to correctly mount an explosive. It was not uncommon for a petardier to be killed by his own device. In Hamlet, Shakespeare uses the phrase “hoist with his own petard”, as a proverbial phrase meaning to be destroyed by ones own devices.
Before and after photos of Operation Sailor Hat in Hawaii, an attempt in 1965 to simulate the effects of nuclear blasts on US Navy ships by detonating large quantities of conventional explosives. Five hundred tons of explosives were used in several of the tests, making them some of the largest non-nuclear explosions in history..
- lance and the Crew™ go out to space for some ass kicking space robot fighting amirite
- they’re fighting and keith and lance are underground to infiltrate a secret galra base on a planet
- keith is like “wait let’s explode this thing” and holds up dynamite and lance is like ‘i think the heck not?? that’s a terrible idea'
- keith sighs as lance explains it’d probably kill them and not to mention shiro could be inside the secret base or innocent prisoners
- keith leaves the explosives behind a crate and they go to find the control to take out the power
- they take out the power and they decide to split up between two prison wings to free the prisoners
- lance opens all the cells as the power is out, instructing them to go to the opposite wing and find the red paladin, as he’ll take them to the surface where allura is waiting with the castle
- lance finishes getting the prisoners from his wing evacuated and keith comes back to get lance
- a wild haggar appears!
- and holding keith’s dynamite no less (that idiot you don’t leave unused explosives in the enemy’s base with no intent of using them)
- haggar has a match in her other hand so lance doesn’t think and shoots it out of her hand, which was a bAD IDEA
- keith starts to run and lance follows, but haggar had dropped the explosives on the still lit match on the floor, and it’s only a matter of seconds until the thing explodes
- haggar grabs lance’s neck and pulls him back, now lance is choking so he can’t cry out to keith
- haggar attempts to put a shield up but it’s pretty rushed (the bomb is about to go off so??) so it barely protects the two of them, they’re not dead but almost
- BOOM it explodes, keith is not far enough and is knocked out and in bad shape
- pidge and hunk and trying to talk to lance and keith, to find that keith isn’t responding and lance’s helmet isn’t even online so it’s presumably broken
- pidge goes down to find keith and lance and finds a huge room on fire basically, with keith knocked out
- she puts keith in her lion and looks for lance but no one is there in the hallway besides keith
- she hurries to the castle where allura is waiting with the rescued prisoners, and hunk is fighting off a small fleet single handedly
- they get hunk back inside the castle and they open a wormhole to quickly get away: they did what they came to do and they had to leave because a) keith needed serious medical attention b) lance?? where is he?? and c) there’s more galra ships and the ship (once again) is in bad condition (isn’t it always lmao)
- they rush keith to a healing pod
- while keith is healing coran, allura, pidge and hunk are worrying about lance and keith and shiro: not only is shiro missing but lance is too?? what will they do without their sharp shooter??? is he dead???? and keith is out of action while he’s healing (he doesn’t come out for almost a week) and pidge and hunk can’t single handedly fight zarkon and the galra
- because lance flew into the base with keith and the red lion the blue lion is safe inside the castle
- red lion followed pidge’s lion when she went to the castle
haha to be continues i guess??
rip sorry for my spelling, punctuation, lack of using capitals, weird sentence structuring EVERYTHING i mean i wrote this under a blanket in the rain on some bleachers so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
One of two grenade designs to be mass produced during the American Civil War, the Hanes Excelsior hand grenade was the invention of W.W. Hanes in early 1862. The Hanes grenade was a simple weapon, merely a cast iron ball with a hollow center which was filled with gunpowder. Grenades had been used for centuries, however they never became very common until the 20th century due to unreliable detonation mechanisms, such as fuses. In the 18th century specialized soldiers called “grenadiers” experimented with the use of grenades in warfare, by they were discontinued after when it was found that the grenades were just as dangerous to the user as to the enemy. The Hanes grenade suffered from the same problem of having an unreliable detonation system. Spaced evenly among the grenade were ten protruding nipples upon which percussion caps were placed. When thrown, the force of the cap striking the ground struck a spark which detonated the grenade. The percussion caps used were not the same type of caps used to fire percussion muskets and revolvers, rather they were special grenade caps produced by DuPont which used a very refined form of mercury fulminate, causing the caps to be highly sensitive to percussion. While this ensured that the grenade would detonate reliably (which it didn’t), it also made the grenade very dangerous to carry unless its percussion caps were not in place. Any bump or jostle of the grenade could cause an accidental explosion. Then of course a soldier would have to cap the grenade whilst in combat. To solve the problem, the grenades were stored in special rubber cases, but accidents were still common. As a result no sane soldier would want to carry one. Thus they were rarely used when issued.
