The cosmic cloud of gas and dust is W33, a massive starforming complex some 13,000 light-years distant, near the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy. So what are all those yellow balls? Citizen scientists of the web-based Milky Way Project found the features they called yellow balls as they scanned many Spitzer images and persistently asked that question of researchers. Now there is an answer. The yellow balls in Spitzer images are identified as an early stage of massive star formation. They appear yellow because they are overlapping regions of red and green, the assigned colors that correspond to dust and organic molecules known as PAHs at Spitzer wavelengths. Yellow balls represent the stage before newborn massive stars clear out cavities in their surrounding gas and dust and appear as green-rimmed bubbles with red centers in the Spitzer image. Of course, the astronomical crowdsourcing success story is only part of the Zooniverse. The Spitzer image spans 0.5 degrees or about 100 light-years at the estimated distance of W33.

Kylo Ren not being able to live up to his full potential with the Dark Side because deep down he’s Light at his core is a wonderful dilemma. The fact that he’s trying so hard to be what he thinks he should be but it goes against who he is/who he’s supposed to be and it’s tearing him apart inside is way more that I ever thought we’d get from his character.


If it weren’t for the fact that only one of us could become Miss Korea, do you think we could have been friends? If not for the same year, 1997… if we had competed in different years, would we still be at each other’s throat like this?

Possibly the strangest thing about crop circles (other than their mysterious appearance and complex geometry) is the light/orb phenomenons associated with the designs. Many witnesses have reported seeing amber/white light orbs appearing in or around the crop designs, in photos and in person.

These orbs of light are more akin to something that appears to be made of energy, rather than a physical craft. They have been filmed flying around the designs; in one instance, even being chased by Military of Defence helicopters in the UK. They are called UFOs only because of their nature - they are unidentified and flying - but many crop circle researchers don’t associate them with the physical craft phenomena of UFOs that is so widely known.

Odd energies have been felt in and around crop circles with the addition of strange buzzing sounds that have been recorded by researchers and the BBC. During a BBC interview, cameras and equipment were damaged by the high energy environment around the design, along with catching the strange buzzing on their audio. The hair of crop circle researcher Pat Delgado stood on end while inside the design as if he was being blasted with some kind of static energy.

It seems that the phenomena of crop circles is highly charged with some sort of electromagnetic energy that can be felt, seen, and heard. Contrary to popular belief, the designs do not appear to have been made directly by UFOs, which is corroborated by witnesses. Few people have been lucky enough to see crop circles forming and all witnesses state that the designs formed out of nothing, or with an occasional mist present. The crop begins to move and swirl and go down without any observable force. It is only after a design is made that the orbs of light have shown up around them.

Whether the nature of the orbs or the energy is truly extraterrestrial is unknown, but witnesses to the orbs of light say they seem to be under intelligent control. Clearly these complex geometric designs show signs of some unknown intelligence that may be trying to convey a message.

I’ve been in bit of a financial trouble lately so I’m opening up the full commission again. Any support and signal boosts are welcome!

Type O - Let’s be honest, Type O is basically a doodle. Messy lines, no color. Good for a quick sketch or a simple idea you want to see. Quick turnaround time of few days, but with no midpoint check. You can request changed at the end.

Type A - Messy lines that makes it hard for anything detailed. It’s good for expressive, colorful art. Good for portraiture or anything with complex or dramatic lighting. Turnaround time depends on the subject but estimate of a week, give or take a few days.

Type B - Clean lines with cel-shading. Colors are flat with minimal variations and shading. It’s good if you want details. Recommended style for character profiles.  Turnaround time depends on the subject but estimate of a week, give or take a few days.

Type AB - Best of both worlds. Clean lines, fully shaded and colored. Turnaround time for this will be the longest, two weeks to a month.

Multiple Characters - Multiple characters are +50% per character of the base price. The price is subjected to change depending on the pose and the complexity of the character.

The Process - Contact me on tumblr or via my e-mail ( to discuss what you want done. Payment is upfront by paypal. I will send you an invoice. 

After payment is confirmed, I will work on the piece. Type A, B, and AB has a midway checkpoint at which I will ask you to confirm rough sketch of the commission. After this checkpoint, you can no longer request changes to the sketch (pose, expression, composition). 

After this confirmation, I will color and e-mail you the final piece where you can request some changes to the color. 

About - I can do nsfw themes, blood, gore, dicks, fan art, ocs. Animals may cost extra depending on how complex the animal is (large animals, like horses). Complex outfits (armors, mech) will be extra. If I am not confident with the subject matter, I will let you know in the initial discussion so that you can decide whether to continue pursue the commission. You can ask for a full refund if I am not finished with the commission within 30 days

These commissions are for personal use only.

The mantis shrimp is a marine crustacean that typically grows to be 30 centimeters in length and can range from brown to bright neon colors. They have very powerful claws that are capable of inflicting serious damage on victims significantly greater in size than themselves. The mantis’ eye has 16 photoreceptors (compared to the our 3) and can see UV, visible, and polarized light making it the most complex visual system on Earth.

We have to realize that all of us are a complex mixture of light and shadows. The other person is much more than the sum of the little things that annoy me. Love does not have to be perfect for us to value it. The other person loves me as best they can, with all their limits, but the fact that love is imperfect does not mean that it is untrue or unreal.

I did it. 

It was only going to be a warm up drawing. Like just Dream!Sans, actually cause he’s the cutest little guy I ever did see.
But Nightmare!Sans provides good contrast in design because where Dream is a little more complex in design and light in color, Nightmare is just flat out black and simple and I love it.
I don’t know why I gave them the buttons (Fight and Mercy). Probably because it’s how I see them. I could be wrong. 

Took about an hour on this thing. Please don’t murder me.
