distorted arm

Because of his ghost half, Danny appears slightly translucent in human form, and has a faint glow to his skin in dark rooms. On top of that, his “image” seems to shift occassionally. One of the students that sit behind him in class noticed this once when Danny raised his hand in class and watched his arm distort with the motion. That student avoids him like the plague now.

some Hunk Angst™ (featuring Pidge)

  • Hunk having these weird visions/mental images that pop up time to time, sometimes more often than he’d like them
    • the feeling of a stray hair turns into a hundred ants crawling up his leg
    • or just doing some everyday thing and he’ll just imagine something crawling up behind him but he wont react because he knows theres nothing there or he’s too focused on his thing
  • sometimes they get really vivid
    • he’ll think of doing something like going to scratch an itch but then he wont do it because a mental image of him digging out skin and meat from his leg so he just deals with the itch 
    • or he’ll lay in bed and “see” something emerge from the darkness and it’s very monstrous looking, like something with no face except for a mouth full of sharp teeth taking up half the head and its body is long and distorted with six arms that it uses to crawl through the halls
  • having grown up with this most of his life so by now it feels like nothing to him 
  • but on particularly bad emotional days it really hits him, especially when its when the mental image is mutilating his own body 
  • or there are really bad times he wants to reach out for help to help someone but then an image of their cut up/heavily injured body flashes through his mind and it feels like that would happen because of something he did so he sits back silently
  • Pidge goes through very similar things but for her its much more vivid and bloody and she’ll go into panic attacks over it
    • Only Hunk knows about it and the same for Pidge knowing about it for Hunk
      • Lance knows about Hunk a little but not to such a degree as pidge does since he doesn’t want to worry his friend with something he cant really help with
    • they’ll constantly go to each other for help or just some reassurance 
  • the night pidge saved the castle of lions and lost rover was a really bad night for her with the imagery so she spent just about the entire night trying to distract herself and didnt get any sleep and neither did hunk because he stayed up all night with her helping however he could

What this morning has taught me: most people on this website don’t seem to know where Harry’s rose is placed on his arm.

Unraveling NGC 3169 : Spiral galaxy NGC 3169 appears to be unraveling in this cosmic scene, played out some 70 million light-years away just below bright star Regulus toward the faint constellation Sextans. Its beautiful spiral arms are distorted into sweeping tidal tails as NGC 3169 and neighboring NGC 3166 interact gravitationally, a common fate even for bright galaxies in the local universe. In fact, drawn out stellar arcs and plumes, indications of gravitational interactions, seem rampant in the deep and colorful galaxy group photo. The picture spans 20 arc minutes, or about 400,000 light-years at the groups estimated distance, and includes smaller, dimmer NGC 3165 at bottom right. NGC 3169 is also known to shine across the spectrum from radio to X-rays, harboring an active galactic nucleus that is likely the site of a supermassive black hole. via NASA

Hubble catches a transformation in the Virgo constellation

The constellation of Virgo (The Virgin) is especially rich in galaxies, due in part to the presence of a massive and gravitationally-bound collection of over 1300 galaxies called the Virgo Cluster. One particular member of this cosmic community, NGC 4388, is captured in this image, as seen by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3).

Located some 60 million light-years away, NGC 4388 is experiencing some of the less desirable effects that come with belonging to such a massive galaxy cluster. It is undergoing a transformation, and has taken on a somewhat confused identity.

While the galaxy’s outskirts appear smooth and featureless, a classic feature of an elliptical galaxy, its center displays remarkable dust lanes constrained within two symmetric spiral arms, which emerge from the galaxy’s glowing core – one of the obvious features of a spiral galaxy. Within the arms, speckles of bright blue mark the locations of young stars, indicating that NGC 4388 has hosted recent bursts of star formation.

Despite the mixed messages, NGC 4388 is classified as a spiral galaxy. Its unusual combination of features are thought to have been caused by interactions between NGC 4388 and other galaxies in the Virgo Cluster. Gravitational interactions – from glancing blows to head-on collisions, tidal influencing, mergers, and galactic cannibalism – can be devastating to galaxies. While some may be lucky enough to simply suffer a distorted spiral arm or newly-triggered wave of star formation, others see their structure and contents completely and irrevocably altered.

anonymous asked:

sometimes it feels like I'm playing a first-person video game rather than directly participating in reality. does this sound like disassociation? (tag starrycosmos)

Hi StarryCosmos,

You’re example/comparision is very unique, and I appreciate you bringing that up, as I’ve never heard someone explain their experience in that format ^_^ I am not, nor is anyone at MHA, a professional so any advice I give you, please take with a grain of salt. Think about and how it relates to your everyday life, and how you this disorder may relate or affect you. I can simply only give the information as a guide, and I hope it provides some kind of in sight for you <3

Both of these disorders, depersonalization-derealizaiton, fall under the category of Dissociate Disorders. There a several different of Dissociative Disorders and the signs/symptoms of these disorders include.

  • Memory loss (amnesia) of certain time periods, events and people
  • Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts and attempts
  • A sense of being detached from yourself
  • A perception of the people and things around you as distorted and unreal
  • A blurred sense of identity
  • Significant stress or problems in your relationships, work or other important areas of your life

Depersonalization:

  • Feelings that you’re an outside observer of your thoughts, feelings, your body or parts of your body, perhaps as if you were floating in air above yourself
  • Feeling like a robot or that you’re not in control of your speech or movements
  • The sense that your body, legs or arms appear distorted, enlarged or shrunken, or that your head is wrapped in cotton
  • Emotional or physical numbness of your senses or responses to the world around you
  • A sense that your memories lack emotion, and that they may or may not be your own memories

Derealization:

  • Feelings of being alienated from or unfamiliar with your surroundings, perhaps like you’re living in a movie
  • Feeling emotionally disconnected from people you care about as if you were separated by a glass wall
  • Surroundings that appear distorted, blurry, colorless, two-dimensional or artificial, or a heightened awareness and clarity of your surroundings
  • Distortions in perception of time, such as recent events feeling like distant past
  • Distortions of distance and the size and shape of objects

Both of these can be experienced in episodes that may last hours, days, weeks, or even months at a time. If you feel as though you are “playing the video game,” it may be comparable to feeling like you are in a movie, for example. If you are not feeling as though are participating with society, you definitely could be experiencing some of the above symptoms and not realize it. Some of the more tiny ones are that of perception, which can deal with time to also the size and shape of objects. If you feel more specifically as though are day dreaming, per say, and creating stories that go beyond reality, you may be dealing with maladaptive daydreaming.

Some symptoms of Maladaptive Daydreaming include:

  • The daydreaming is excessive and can be compared to an addiction;
  • This excessive daydreaming started in childhood (in most cases);
  • Media such as books, movies, videogames, etc. can trigger the daydreaming;
  • You could compare the daydreaming to a film or novel, the daydreams are very detailed and elaborate;
  • It’s common to fall into repetative moments while daydreaming, such as pacing, rocking, spinning, shaking something in their hand, etc;
  • Sometimes the sufferer may make facial expressions, talk, laugh, cry or gesture while daydreaming. They do know the difference between their daydreams and reality, they just prefer the daydreams. However because they know their daydreams aren’t real, they are different from people suffering from psychosis or schizophrenia; 

Again, these are just suggestions, from what you have said, and please take it with a grain of salt. It’s not always exactly line for line, symptom for symptom how it lines up, but I would suggest you think about it carefully. If it is becoming a huge issue with your life and making it hard for you to function day to day, I would definitely look further into what disorders you may be experiencing with.

I hope this information was helpful to you, and that you will be able to figure out what is going on :3 While I cannot provide a full diagnosis please know that this is something you can overcome. It may take a while, but regardless you will be able to overcome this, and know we always have our inbox open so you can drop a line <3

I hope you have a wonderful week!

There is a lot of photoshop controversy with the new Black Widow poster. You might have seen the above image floating around tumblr.

People are upset and I definitely understand why. But there are also a lot of photoshop “experts” weighing in on how this image was manipulated, and many of them are close, but I don’t think any of them really know what the hell they are talking about. 

While I can’t claim to know every edit that was made to this image, I can give you a close idea of how an image like this is produced. I’m not going to make too many judgments about the ethics. I think that has been covered pretty well.

First off, this is a hybrid image. An initial photograph is taken, and then a digital artist essentially paints over it. The painting layers and the photograph layers are blended together to create an almost surreal effect. Like the image could be a painting or a photo and it kind of blows your mind a little trying to figure which it is.

It’s both. So don’t hurt your brain too much. 

You’ll see this done a lot with superhero movies because the images almost look like they could grace the page of a comic book. I think it is a neat effect when done properly. 

The initial photograph is taken with very bland lighting. The subject is very evenly lit so there are no heavy highlights or shadows. If you were to see the original photo you would probably think it wasn’t very well done. That is because the digital artist wishes to paint in the dramatic lighting themselves. That is the main way they create the overall effect. They paint in highlights and shadow. They enhance textures. They will use the color of the original as a reference, but usually they will repaint or dodge and burn to get the effect they want. 

The part of this image that people don’t care for are the adjustments to Scarlett’s actual features. Yes, her waist was absolutely brought in. This is done with a tool called “liquify” in photoshop. It’s a very easy adjustment to make and takes about 20 seconds. This is extremely common practice and it’s possible that 20 second adjustment is the most controversial of all. 

The below image took me about 30 seconds total, and as you can see, it can be taken to some pretty extreme lengths with almost no effort at all. 

I can’t say for sure, but her neck was probably lengthened in the poster. This is pretty standard practice, though it is very hard to detect. This is probably the silliest practice in retouching. I have never once said, “Man, I wish that person’s neck was longer.”

People say that her breasts are enhanced, and that is true, but I don’t think they are “enhanced” the way people think. In photoshop, if you want to enlarge breasts, you would use the “bloat” function in the Liquify tool. Again, this is another 20 second adjustment and it produces surprisingly realistic results. 

I don’t think this artist actually enlarged her breasts a great deal, but rather made them more… pronounced. He added a heavy highlight on the top and a shadow on the bottom. This gives the illusion of depth and makes the breasts stand out more. 

To show you some examples I did some very quick and dirty adjustments. Keep in mind if I had higher res files to work with, I could get much more realistic results. I just wanted to give you a rough idea.

This is the standard technique for enlarging breasts using the bloat tool. 

The tool expands the area and makes it seem more spherical. Photoshop will probably tell you this function has all sorts of practical applications. But I’m pretty sure they created it for boobs. 

Below is the “pronounced” effect I think they used in the poster. It is just simple shading and highlighting. Nothing is enlarged, but it still gives that effect. 

And, of course, you can use both techniques at once. Which is also a possibility in the poster.  

The only thing I am not too sure about is the length of the arms. I have definitely heard of people making legs longer, but I don’t recall arm lengthening being a general practice. In my opinion I think it was just the way the image was shot. 

In photography there is a technique where you can use a wide angle lens from a low angle to give your subject a more powerful appearance. Think of yourself standing at the base of a tall statue. As you look up, it seems massive and imposing. That is because of perspective distortion. Close things seem large, far things seem small, and it is what gives us a sense of something’s size. 

So if you create that same effect in a photo with a wide angle lens and a normal human, it creates that sense of power. Which is what I think they wanted to convey with the image. However, that perspective distortion can make a person’s features seem a bit unnatural. Limbs seem the wrong length. Proportions seem a bit off. For the most part our brain interprets the image correctly, but if you do a very close inspection of the photo, then these distortions become more noticeable. 

I looked at press photos of Miss Johansson, and she does have long, slender arms. I think her naturally long arms + distortion is why they appear a bit funny looking. I don’t think it was a purposeful decision.

I think the sad part is that if they had not brought in the waist, pronounced the breasts, and lengthened the neck, this would have been a pretty badass image in its own right. She is a beautiful woman and I don’t see how making these unrealistic adjustments made this image any better. 

The Challenge

There were no sounds of battle to greet Pearl after the warp stream deposited her at the Sky Arena. Echoes rolled off the walls, the indistinct murmurings of a crowd. Rose’s voice spoke, clear above the rest, projecting strength and command all the more compelling for its caritas. Pearl’s feet had barely settled on the crystal pad before she was already moving, past the seal of the Four Paragons and darting up the stone stairway in quick, scurrying steps. 

She wasn’t too late. There was still time.

The stands were densely packed. Gems of every conceivable cut and hue had all quieted the moment Rose Quartz had opened her mouth to speak. 

Pearl saw her back from the top of the coliseum, her hair immense and vibrant like a cultivated field of pink curls. 

“I didn’t come to fight, Heliotrope,” Rose implored. “There’s already been enough pointless skirmishes. I came to talk with you and the gems gathered here so we can all keep this situation from spiraling out of control.”

Galactic wreckage in Stephan’s Quintet:

A clash among members of a famous galaxy quintet reveals an assortment of stars across a wide colour range, from young, blue stars to aging, red stars.

This portrait of Stephan’s Quintet, also known as the Hickson Compact Group 92, was taken by the new Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) aboard the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Stephan’s Quintet, as the name implies, is a group of five galaxies. The name, however, is a bit of a misnomer. Studies have shown that group member NGC 7320, at upper left, is actually a foreground galaxy that is about seven times closer to Earth than the rest of the group.

Three of the galaxies have distorted shapes, elongated spiral arms, and long, gaseous tidal tails containing myriad star clusters, proof of their close encounters. These interactions have sparked a frenzy of star birth in the central pair of galaxies. This drama is being played out against a rich backdrop of faraway galaxies.

The image, taken in visible and near-infrared light, showcases WFC3’s broad wavelength range. The colours trace the ages of the stellar populations, showing that star birth occurred at different epochs, stretching over hundreds of millions of years. The camera’s infrared vision also peers through curtains of dust to see groupings of stars that cannot be seen in visible light.

NGC 7319, at top right, is a barred spiral with distinct spiral arms that follow nearly 180 degrees back to the bar. The blue specks in the spiral arm at the top of NGC 7319 and the red dots just above and to the right of the core are clusters of many thousands of stars. Most of the Quintet is too far away even for Hubble to resolve individual stars.

Continuing clockwise, the next galaxy appears to have two cores, but it is actually two galaxies, NGC 7318A and NGC 7318B. Encircling the galaxies are young, bright blue star clusters and pinkish clouds of glowing hydrogen where infant stars are being born. These stars are less than 10 million years old and have not yet blown away their natal cloud. Far away from the galaxies, at right, is a patch of intergalactic space where many star clusters are forming.

NGC 7317, at bottom left, is a normal-looking elliptical galaxy that is less affected by the interactions.

Sharply contrasting with these galaxies is the dwarf galaxy NGC 7320 at upper left. Bursts of star formation are occurring in the galaxy’s disc, as seen by the blue and pink dots. In this galaxy, Hubble can resolve individual stars, evidence that NGC 7320 is closer to Earth. NGC 7320 is 40 million light-years from Earth. The other members of the Quintet reside about 300 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus.

These more distant members are markedly redder than the foreground galaxy, suggesting that older stars reside in their cores. The stars’ light also may be further reddened by dust stirred up in the encounters.

Spied by Edouard M. Stephan in 1877, Stephan’s Quintet is the first compact group ever discovered.

WFC3 observed the Quintet in July and August 2009. The composite image was made by using filters that isolate light from the blue, green and infrared portions of the spectrum, as well as emission from ionised hydrogen.

These Hubble observations are part of the Hubble Servicing Mission 4 Early Release Observations. NASA astronauts installed the WFC3 camera during a servicing mission in May to upgrade and repair the 19-year-old Hubble telescope.

Vulnerable - Ch. 1 (collab with Haiju)

Happy 10th Dannyversary! I can’t believe I’ve been in this fandom for a decade, geez. Have some angst.

Pain slid across his chest—blood, warm and thick, soaked into his T-shirt. Danny’s mouth parted in a silent scream. Claws slammed him into the concrete on either side of him. Curling his fingers into a crack in the floor, Danny arched himself upwards, pushing the ghost back. Its jaws snapped shut inches from his face.

He yanked up one knee close to his chest. His ribs protested the movement, but he ignored it and kicked out hard. His foot landed somewhere solid behind the slashing claws and limbs. Satisfaction flushed through him as the ghost yelped in pain. It toppled backward, thrashing like a cockroach that had been stomped on.

Danny dove for the thermos that had been knocked out of his hands just seconds before. His outstretched fingers were only inches away when its tail lashed into his back. His skull smacked painfully against the cement.

You Might Be A Keeper Pt.7 *Psycho!Michael*

you guys are so patient with me omg ily all your support is the best like seriously
also shout out to my girl keelycj for the idea for this chapter, even tho i changed it up slightly it still mostly came from her you da best bby
——————————————-

The white room was still just as menacing the second time in there. You found it funny in a way, as the color white represented purity. Everything that has occurred in this room has been nothing but impure and sinful. The horrors these walls have seen are unspeakable. Luke sat you down in a chair as Michael led the drunk girl into the room. Your heart was racing in fear for her. You didn’t know what was coming of her fate, but you knew it wouldn’t be good. She tripped on her heels slightly and giggled. Michael was growing frustrated as she couldn’t keep her balance. He shoved her in and closed the door behind him without a word. You watched him turn the lock and give Luke a head nod. Michael walked over to the same cabinet that was there when he brought you here. He put on another pair of gloves and walked back over to where the blond girl was laying on the floor, clutching her hip in pain. He bent to her level and moved some strands of hair from her face, “What’s your name, sweetheart?” He asked, a smile playing at the corner of his lips. She sat up with her arms supporting her weight behind her, “Cara. What’s yours, cutie?” She hiccupped and tried to stand to her feet, only to be pushed back down. “My name doesn’t matter.” He answered. You felt Luke’s hands on your shoulders with a small grip to keep you in place. “Hey, that’s not fair. I told you mine.” Cara protested from the tiled floor. Michael rolled his eyes and returned to the gray cabinet in the corner, he retrieved a knife and checked over the blade. Your eyes widened and your breath quickened. You had to do something to stop him. You had to at least try and stop this from happening. Cara was an innocent girl who didn’t deserve a single ounce of pain that was coming her way. Michael approached Cara, who seemed t sober up quickly after seeing the kitchen knife coming towards her. She began crawling back out of fear. You took the chance and shook Luke’s hands from your shoulders. You leaped towards Michael and tackled him to he ground. The knife clattered against the hard tile as Michael tried to push you off. Luke wasn’t quick to react as he stood there in shock for a few seconds. Your hand reached for the knife, your fingers wrapped around the smooth, black handle and brought it to Michael’s neck. You pressed it into his Adam’s apple. He stopped struggling and laid his hands out to the side behind him. “What are you going to do with that, baby girl?” He taunted you. Which only made you press it into his skin harder, drawing a little bit of blood to dribble down his skin. “Let her go.” Your voice was stern and strong. No waver in it. “That’s cute, honey. Luke, get her off of me.” Luke walked over and lifted you from his body. You were kicking and screaming as he wrapped his arm around your waist and one hand over your mouth. He pressed your back against his body, ceasing all your movements and causing the knife to gall from your hands. Michael stood to his feet and narrowed his eyes at you. “Brave now, are we?” Cara being forgotten for the moment, all his attention was now on you. He didn’t say another word as his hand came in contact with your cheek. Your head spun to the side as tears welled up in your eyes. Cara let out a whimper and covered her mouth as her own tears fell. Michaels attention returned to Cara in the corner. “You know, I was going to let you live for a few days. But this bitch just ruined that pleasure for you.” He lunged for her as you began squirming again, trying to be released from Luke’s gradually tightening grip. You screamed into his hand clamped over your mouth. You watched in terror as Michael grabbed Cara by her hair and yanked her towards him. His hands wrapped around her neck and squeezed. She clawed at his hands, doing everything in her power for him to loosen his grasp. He showed no sign of letting go as you watched her actions slow down. You watched her not hit him as much, you saw her eyes start to close more and more. You saw when her body finally went limp. Cara fell to the ground with a thump. “See what you did?” Michael spun around and pointed to the girl who now lay dead in the middle of the floor. “If you hadn’t misbehaved she would still be alive right now.” He was blaming you, he blamed her death on you trying to save her. Luke finally let go of you, but instead of trying to hold yourself up, you just fell to the floor. You crawled over to Cara and grabbed her hand. It was limp and lifeless. Her eyes were closed and her lips were parted slightly. You moved her hair away from her face and closed your own eyes, reciting a silent prayer to yourself. She looked younger in a way. It broke your heart, she had a family. She had a life, friends, everything in the world she could’ve had. “Now you have to help me get rid of her body.” Michael spoke from above you. You looked up into his cold, hardened eyes. You shook your head, “No. I will not help you, you animal.” He grabbed a fist full of your tangled hair and yanked your head back, making you look at him. “You will help me. You will do as your told. You will behave, and stop back talking me. I’m not going to let you live forever and each time you decide to speak you ruin your chances of survival even more.” He shoved your head back away from him and you didn’t answer him. There was a phone ringing and all eyes turned to Luke. He reached his hand into his back pocket and grabbed a phone while answering it. “Hello?” His accent was thicker than you remembered. He pulled his lip between his teeth and played with the black ring in the corner. You wanted to scream, you wanted to make as much noise as possible, to let the person on the receiving end know what was happening over here. To know that Luke was apart of these crimes, that he wasn’t as good a guy as he put off to the world. But you didn’t. You didn’t do any of those things. It wouldn’t have helped you none. All it would’ve done was pissed the boys off more and probably end with you severely injured or dead. Two of which you didn’t want. You turned back to Cara’s body, ignoring Luke and Michael all together. You fixed her body to lay straight, instead of the previous way her limbs were distorted. You crossed her arms over her chest and sat back. You wiped away any stray tears that had fallen. “Are you going to stick around and help or do you have to go?” Michael asked Luke. Luke returned the phone into his back pocket and ran his fingers through his hair. “No, I have to leave. Breaking news, another girl missing.” He laughed. Him and Michael did a small hand shake and left the room. “Looks like it’s just me and you.” Michael crouched down to your level and rubbed your back soothingly. “Just me and you.” He repeated.
