roddaxios asked:

if tesarus can replace his grinder with blades doesn't this mean if he was partially submersed in water he'd be able to propel himself like a biped motorboat? or if he reversed the direction of his fan and turned up the speed enough he could fly into the sky?

I just got the image of Tesarus just nyooming around in the water, cackling with delight. Nickel has a submarine mode so she can join him.

Tesarus just flying off into the sky when he’s 100% done with things.

A9-RIG is hands-down the best stop-motion figure out on the market. Here are nine reasons why:

1) A9 biped can achieve every pose humanly possible

2) A9 quadrupeds can also achieve every pose possible by quadrupeds

3) And all of these pieces are interchangeable so you can create creatures like centaurs and even dragons be simply swapping parts around. There is no limit to what you can build.

4) With the biped being 1:6 in scale (same as barbie dolls) you can equip it with endless costumes and props that you can find online. Great for getting fabric and wrinkle reference too! 

5) Detachable parts allow for tightening and maintenance of joints so that the figure remains well fitted FOREVER! 

6) Textured wood material makes it strong, durable and excellent for sculpting over the top of and creating your own custom creature heads.

7) We offer custom shapes and limb lengths, including digitigrade legs and feet!

8) Our customer service is second to none. The 12 month warranty guarantees we’ll be there for you if anything goes wrong with your model

9) The figure is strong enough to stand all on its own but also has an inlaid screw in the back for attaching it to our articulated crane or any tripod attachment. Plus now comes included with magnetic feet.

Are you guys reading the awesome webcomic The Boy in Pink earmuffs ?

If not you should be! Because it is seriously the sweetest and cutest webcomic ever. It’s all about how you should not judge people simply by what they wear or how they act.

Today I got the chance to go over to Chicago Comics and pick up the new BiPE mini comic and the other mini comic of the first few strips. 

Ugh, but really go read the adorableness and support this awesome comic!

Saturnalia tupiniquim was an early, basal sauropodomorph dinosaur found in Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil. It lived during the Late Triassic (Carnian).

It is known from three partial skeletons lacking skulls, except for an impression of a dentary with teeth. Saturnalia was probably an omnivore with an estimated length of around 1,5 meters (5 ft).

It would have used a bipedal gait probably to escape from predators, but also for active hunting of small prey, when relatively fast locomotion was advantageous. However, it was probably not an obligatory biped. During a slower pace, perhaps while moving through areas with vegetation that could be eaten it is likely it walked on all fours.

This restoration is based on the likelihood that proto-feathers were present in basal dinosaurs.


A study of Saurian morphology: Pseudosuchia (part 2)

Reposting because I have no idea what happened but my post disappeared? Now that I’m fully sober I should add some information about these fellas.

The three depicted above belong to the group Crocodylomorpha, a group that was very diverse during the Mesozoic. Sphenosuchus was a small, gracile basal crocodylomorph that might have been biped for a short burst of time—just like today’s Basilisk lizard for example.

The other two represent a major clade of marine crocodiles known as Thalattosuchia, Neptunidraco is classified under Metriorhynchidae, a family of fully aquatic crocs which had lost their scutes and developed flipper-like limbs and tail fin to complement their pelagic lifestyle. 

Machimosaurus on the other hand, represents the Metriorhynchidae’s closest relative Teleosauridae, a family of gharial-like marine crocodyliforms. This fish-eating genus recently circulated around the internet after the announcement of M. rex, probably the largest teleosaurid known at (est) 9.6 m (31 ft) long—but we all know it’s mostly due to the “rex” on its name.

I should probably start writing proper captions for my future posts because the world needs to learn about flippercroc and its funky relatives. They’re like, the weirdest crocs ever. Or not. You’ll find out in 3 days.

I’ve noticed that Alphys gets drawn way more off-model than any of the other characters, and I think I’ve figured out why. Her body isn’t shaped like a human body.

  • Her spine is straight, just held at a 45 degree angle from vertical.
  • Her neck connects to her head from the back rather than from the bottom.

Her head also doesn’t exist as a 3D obect but that’s a bit more obvious. Also just because her spine is straight doesn’t mean she suddenly has good posture, I mean she’s still stuck in a perpetual cringe.
