cloud effect

Image of the star V838 Monocerotis reveals dramatic changes in the illumination of surrounding dusty cloud structures. The effect, called a light echo, has been unveiling never-before-seen dust patterns ever since the star suddenly brightened for several weeks.

Observer Effect: The theoretical foundation of the concept of measurement in quantum mechanics is a contentious issue deeply connected to the many interpretations of quantum mechanics. A key focus point is that of wave function collapse, for which several popular interpretations assert that measurement, or observation, causes a discontinuous change into an eigenstate of the operator associated with the quantity that was measured.

and baze does the superhero landing and notices his knees are hurting. ffs man didn’t they teach you to roll in guardian school? no freaking wonder your joints hate you.

Of course they did but is that dramatic enough for Baze Malbus? No


Hiccup’s hands on your waist are the only things keeping you focused right now. Your foot is comfortable in the adjustable stirrup, and your hands comfortable in the handle, but the fact of completely controlling a dragon and that if you make one mistake you could both die…its daunting.

It’s like your boyfriend feels your tension. “Relax, you’re doing great! Now try a left turn. Go around that rock.”

Swallowing nervously, you move your right foot gently to the left. Feeling the shift in movement, Toothless makes a perfect left turn around the huge rock rising out of the ocean indicated. You laugh to yourself at the ease you and the dragon work together with. You’re glad Toothless has come to like you nearly as much as Hiccup since the two of you got together.

Hiccup leans over your shoulder to look at your face and chuckles at your smile. “Alright, you’re getting the hang of it! Now let’s go up. Above the clouds.”

You grin and tilt your toes down, effectively relaxing the end of the tail so Toothless can easily climb up above the golden clouds. This is your favorite part about flying: Seeing the whole world laid out below you. The ocean sparkles in the sunlight far below, and the tops of the sun bleached rocks poke above the surface like teeth.

Once above the clouds, you level out your foot and fall into a gentle glide, smiling at how Toothless’s wings just skim the tops of the clouds, effectively whipping up a sort of white smoke. You laugh out loud at how powerful this dragon is, and how easy he is to fly.

Hiccup laughs along with you, and his hands leave your waist. When you turn around he’s holding out his arms in bliss as he feels the wind around him. You wish you could do the same, but as this is your first time flying Toothless, you’re still a little wary of letting go of the handle.

Once you clear the cloud, Hiccup’s hands return to your waist, this time wrapping around it firmly. “Alright, want to try a dive?”

You tense up at the question. “Hiccup, I’m not even good at diving on my own dragon.”

“Ah, come on, you’ll be fine!” he exclaims, not an ounce of doubt in his voice. “I have all the faith in the world. Just keep your foot level until you reach the surface, and Toothless will do the rest of the work.”

Nodding tensely, you readjust your grip. “Okay, I got this. I got this.” You push your heel down so Toothless moves his head down, and then he folds in his wings and you’re diving.

At this speed, it’s a little hard to keep your foot level, but you do it and you’re smiling at how fast the world is moving around you. You love (d/n) but she never moves like this. The water is still hundreds of feet below when you hear Hiccup whoop in exhilaration. You laugh.

You wait to pull up until the last possible second, Toothless’s feet brushing the surface of the water and whipping up the salty sea breeze around you. You throw your hands above your head and whoop loudly, the adrenaline coursing through your veins making you feel ecstatic. Hiccup laughs and leans forward, kissing your cheek.

“That was awesome!”

You lean forward, placing a hand on Toothless’s head. “He’s awesome. It’s so different riding him when I’m the one flying.”

“I know,” Hiccup says fondly. “But don’t get used to it,” he teases, “it’s only for the days I’m a little too busy to fly him.”

“Watch out, Haddock. I’m about to steal your dragon.” Toothless hums underneath you, as if he’s laughing.

Hiccup rolls his eyes with a smile and leans forward you peck your cheek. “Alright, alright. Now let’s head home.”

What is a wet blending brush?

Basically it’s the smudge tool in photoshop but with effects. I use the ‘softer wetter blender’ from The traditional smudge tool won’t give the correct blur effect for clouds (well not how I do them)

I decided to do a “my tools” section for all the technical questions. Will update this post with my current favourite tools changes.


COPIC Multiliner SP from 0.2 to 0.7 

I used these fineliners to do the lines on many pictures - especially these with thick lines or done on textured paper (pen and ink can’t be used then). I like the sturdy metal case, waterproof ink and replaceable tips. These multiliners draw a nice smooth, black line but can also give interesting textured line on rough, watercolour paper.


I usually use my COPIC multilines for line-work but if I want thinner more stable lines I use a rapidograph. I used to use a Faber Castell rapidograph but as they are not available in Japan, I’m currently using a Rotring Isograph 0.4mm and as for now the ink flow is very stable and I didn’t have any problems with clogging. I’m using the original Rotring black ink. One tip: The line thickness and flow can vary depending on how well the paper handles the ink.

TACHIKAWA Linemarker A.T.

Contrary to it’s name this is not a marker pen but a pen with a nib that produces nice thin and stable lines. Great for fast sketching and even more precise linework. It comes in 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5 variations and I’m using the 0.5 one and I’m liking it a lot. The ink from the cartridges makes dark lines and plays well with the most popular Moleskine paper (which is rare for pens) but is not 100% waterproof. The cartridges go empty REALLY fast so it can be bothersome and get expensive but it’s easy to fill the cartridge up with good ink using a syringe. I’m filling mine with black Sailor ink that is meant for fountain pens and also works well with Moleskine’s paper.

ZIG MANGAKA Flexible Fine and Medium

I like to use the Japanese brush pens, unfortunately most of them have non-waterproof inks or marker-like nibs. This one combines good brush nib available in two thicknesses with waterproof ink. The nib provides good flexibility and control balance with really fine line finish if needed. Also small in size and relatively cheap.


Mitsu-Bishi Hi-Uni from grade F to 10B 

I tried a lot of Japanese brand pencils and like all of them but for me the Hi-unis are the best (closely followed by TOMBOW). Now my main pencils. I love the silky feel and dark line they give. Because of that they are widely used in Japanese animation for drawing the animation frames. Japanese pencils generally feel a lot softer than European pencils of same hardness.

STAEDTLER Mars Lumograph grades 6B, 7B and 8B
