Most galaxies possess a majestic spiral or elliptical structure. About a quarter of galaxies, though, defy such conventional, rounded aesthetics, instead sporting a messy, indefinable shape. Known as irregular galaxies, this group includes NGC 5408, the galaxy that has been snapped here by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
English polymath John Herschel recorded the existence of NGC 5408 in June 1834. Astronomers had long mistaken NGC 5408 for a planetary nebula, an expelled cloud of material from an aging star. Instead, bucking labels, NGC 5408 turned out to be an entire galaxy, located about 16 million light-years from Earth in the constellation of Centaurus(The Centaur).
In yet another sign of NGC 5408 breaking convention, the galaxy is associated with an object known as an ultraluminous X-ray source, dubbed NGC 5408 X-1, one of the best studied of its class. These rare objects beam out prodigious amounts of energetic X-rays. Astrophysicists believe these sources to be strong candidates for intermediate-mass black holes.
I tried to make hybrids before..... It did NOT work. So I just draw Pokémon, dragons, and mlp
So I’ve been designing characters for 16 or so years. I feel like there are two ways to do it xD or well there are two ways I do it. Especially when creating species and hybrids.
You can do it the literal way by just taking certain features of the creatures you’re combining and adding it together. Like the top one. A literal hybrid. Basically just a bunny with goat horns and butterfly wings.
Or you can do it conceptually. Looking more for general things and creating something different with it. Not necessarily just taking features and putting them together but using them to guide the overall design.
XD this isn’t the best example. If I had more room I’d make the bottom one with a longer neck or body and rolled antenna to match the wings. Possibly making it more like a centaur too actually.
I mean there are so many different things you can do with a conceptual styled design. When you just look for specific features to throw together then you limit your creativity.
But in the end it all comes down to practice. Once you learn and memorize different things in plants and animals it’s easier to accidentally make cool things. That’s why I enjoy diversity and don’t stick to drawing only one or two types of animals.
And when I say memorize different things in plants and animals I don’t mean features specifically. I mean knowing why they are like they are and understanding physiology and everything makes things much more believable and less random. Random isn’t always bad though. Sometimes I do random things just because I like how it looks xD
What gave you the idea for Celestine's centaur design?
Hmmm , well i wanted to be unique and different with some of my fusions, and i thought the design was cool, you should see her using opals longbow and ice arrows, she becomes a symbol for
Sagittarius, the body works with her powers and abilities
As kids we become obsessed with the supernatural, fantasy and make believe. The dragons and dragon slayers. The fairies, pixies and elves. The trolls, goblins, witches and wizards. The unicorns and centaurs. All these wonderfully beautiful, magical beings that inhabited our imaginations. And slowly but surely the magic began to fade, like the colour on photographs when exposed for too long. And then the magic was gone, and all that was left were memories of the magic which inhabited us. And that’s all we are mostly ever left with -memories. But then one day you wake up and it not so dark and gloomy. There seems to be this being armed with dreams and wishes who just emits light like we are the earth and she is the sun. And she begins to plant these flowers in parts of you that you never thought could grow flowers again. And these flowers grow and grow until you’re consumed by this ever beautiful garden of flowers. And there’s this abundance of space you never thought you had, and the light keeps growing and growing until that’s all this being is. She’s a bundle of light and hope. And suddenly it’s all you can see and think about. But what is the flowers to the sun? Just another colourful patch in a world full of it. But you can hope and dream and wish, and you continue to let this light consume you. Until one day as if by magic this beautiful girl full of light notices this little patch of flowers. And then you realise that magic and wishes and fantasies don’t end, you just believe it doesn’t exist. But if you’re lucky, and I mean really lucky you get to be consumed with magic again, until it feels as though you are floating on the fluffiest of clouds over the most beautiful of lands.
1) Spell your name with song titles!
S-Serotonin- Mystery Jets
A-Ain’t got nothin’: Oasis
R-Run Away: Sundara Karma
A-ASA: Catfish and the Bottlemen
H-Hot Lights: Lany
2) Why did you choose your URL?
Because I like to think I’m 26 lol no
It was the best thing I could think of at the time!
3) What is your middle name?
4) If you could be any mythical creature, what would it be?
I have like 3! I’m just going to list them anyways
1. A Mermaid- So I can be a bitch to non mermaid people
2. A Fairy- so I can throw magic on random bitches faces
3. A centaur- So I can fuck bitches, get money
( lol these aren’t even funny! I’m lame )
a vampire lady whose wives help her with her hair and makeup since she can’t see herself in a mirror.
ghost girlfriends who ‘haunt’ the local gay bar, innocuously changing the music to the jazz that played when they were young. the owner loves it and remodels the bar to match.
a centaur and a faun who live in a cute forest cottage with wide doors and an apple orchard in the back. the faun does the gardening since her wife can’t comfortably reach the earth with her human hands, and the centaur picks the apples from the tall trees.
a gorgon with a gargoyle girlfriend who can always turn back from stone after looking into her eyes.
a siren who will die if a ship ever sails past her cove, and her harpie girlfriend who snatches up the sailors that try to resist the song.
werewolf wives with eight children. they are total soccer moms and the rest of the pta was terrified of them for months, but they won the other moms over with an amazing shepard’s pie at the potluck.
scylla and charybdis, cursed to half-lives as monsters living across from one another in the strait, find comfort in each other’s company. sailors talk of the pass between them narrowing at nights, truly impassible.
so I am just curious, Kate says (she has not spoken in an hour, not that this is unusual, hawkeyes believe in the companionable silence of the First Caffeine of the Day)
is it always like this. bullshit and bruises
–bullet holes– (Clint’s leg really hurts)
and magic, and bullshit,
—that was bullshit twice—
just in general a life for which there is never and will never be enough fucking coffee the morning after?
pretty much, Clint says
… well right on then. we are out of coffee.
—bullet hole, Clint says. stairs. (Clint is not in the mood for stairs. stairs are not much fun with four good legs, they’re just plain fuckery with two good, one dodgy and one with a bullet hole.) Simone?
