Overwatch Offense Heroes!

I finished the first set of weapon infographics! Goodness sakes, this is quite the undertaking. I won’t be including Doomfist until he’s well out of PTR, so I’ll be moving on to defense heroes next! Wahoo!

A little background: Even with my Overwatch obsession and 400+ levels of playtime, there are still some mechanical nuances that I find myself learning! I wanted to put together some visual reference to break down the quirks of each hero’s sidearms. Hopefully this will help some newbies/visual learners/curious gamers out there!

Keep checking back here for updates and fixes as I nitpick and as the Overwatch team re-balances the stats :-) And as always, feel free to shoot me comments, questions, etc! Happy dance!

AH, ALSO! Please don’t re-post without asking me first: these are very likely to change as the game does and I want to avoid as many erroneous, defunct copies of these floating around as possible.

 “Many of my movies have strong female leads – brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.” (– Hayao Miyazaki)

Hi! I just joined the Studyblr community and wanted to introduce myself! My name is Thania, I’m 19 and go to my local college. I’m a business admin major and aspire to transfer to UC Davis or Berkeley. I made this infographic of my outlook/methods to achieving the my best grades possible. :)

PART 2 OF 3

Lars’ Level of Suffering On a Scale of 1-10. Even though Lars may have been initially perceived as a jerk early in the show, this poor kid has been going through many physical and psychological struggles. I have been wanting to create infographics about this topic. The consensus and rating were drawn from the responses in a survey I conducted at the Steven Universe Subreddit.

How to Choose a Good Brush

TEST: Start off by testing the brush on the back of your hand on the inside of your wrist. If the bristles feel scratchy, stiff, itchy or annoying when you brush it on your skin, ditch it. If the brush doesn’t feel nice on your hands it definitely isn’t going to feel nice on your face. 

BRISTLES: When you first test a new brush try gently pulling at the bristles, there is no need to be aggressive. A few bristles may come out (which is completely normal for new brushes) but if you find the brush sheds more than a few times it’s not very well made.

PRESSURE: You need to be able to apply pressure to a brush in order to get the best results with your makeup, if you can’t the brush will be useless in makeup application. Try pressing the brush on the back of your hand or drawing imaginary lines, the bristles should have some flexibility to help with blending, but they should not “fan” out or move a great deal.

BALANCE. This is one of my favourite tricks for testing out the quality of a brush. Hold the brush on the back of your hand with the bristles facing down and lightly bounce the brush, this test the strength of the bristles. It is perfectly normal for the bristles to have a slight bend, but if they splay or flatten out they will not be any good for applying makeup.

FERRULE:  The ferrule is a key factor in makeup brushes and needs to be good quality.When testing out a brush try applying large amounts of pressure to the ferrule with your index finger. If the ferrule melts, moves, dents, changes shape or looks any different after you’ve applied pressure, give it a miss as it is likely the brush will fall apart. Try and opt for brushes which have “dents” in the ferrule as these are often stronger. 

MAKE: The brush head (the tip, bristles and ferrule) should not be loose, spin easily or wobble on the handle if they do; it means the brush is poorly made.

NATURAL VS SYNTHETIC:  Natural bristles vs synthetic bristles have been in debate for a very long time, but in the end it all comes down to personal preference. Natural/Animal hair bristles contain a “cuticle” around them which helps them grip onto powder products more effectively and are fantastic for blending. Synthetic bristles on the other hand are cruelty free and great for liquid and cream products.

Writing Tip March 25th- Expand that vocabulary! Take normal, bland, overused words like “good” and replace them with something better. Make sure you know how to use the word appropriately, and don’t try to confuse your audience by using *too many* thesaurus words, but keep them from getting bored!

lunarian-anarchist  asked:

Do you know any good anarchist books?

/r/blackandgold has a good infographic.

Much of it can be downloaded here. They also have a separate reading list here. (Along with good video links)

I personally have only read a small fraction of those books, so I’ll just give my tops.

The first books to read, while simultaneously perhaps the least important, are For a New Liberty and The Ethics of Liberty by Murray Rothbard. Now, before I get strung up for heresy, let me first explain. I say they are the least important because while they are bar none the best explanations of what Anarcho-Capitalism and the NAP are, respectively, the fact is that if you’ve been following me for any decent length of time, well, there’s nothing too new. While I’m not necessarily making the claim that my arguments on the internet are a perfect substitute for Rothbard’s libertarian manifesto, if you’re already an anarcho-capitalist for moral reasons, especially if I or someone like me was the person to start you on the path, you may be able to get away with skipping them. Maybe.

Next, this video, partially excerpted from David Friedman’s The Machinery of Freedom. This is required viewing if you want to be able to properly understand and explain polycentric law. I will say that Friedman is neither an Austrian nor a Rothbardian and it shows. I’d also read Stefan Molyneux’s Practical Anarchy afterwards. Stefan works primarily within the framework Friedman provides, but comes to different conclusions primarily based on his own philosophy of what is essentially obligate pacifism. But just because I find his solutions sub-optimal doesn’t mean that they aren’t solutions, and his explanations of collective self defense and child welfare are valid and logically sound.

One book I’m (STILL!) partway through reading is Defending the Undefendable, by Walter Block. It’s not necessarily about anarchy, but just from the title, I think you can see why it is relevant to my interests.

Finally, last but not least, is Democracy: The God that Failed, by Hans-Hermann Hoppe. I used to sat that this should always be the final Ancap book you read, because otherwise you’d start getting some weird ideas about monarchy being the ideal societal organization (instead of simply the true lesser evil, as he is actually trying to articulate). However, after having read it to completion, I’ll say that it can be read pretty much right after you watch that Friedman video. Hoppe’s reputation as the libertarian equivalent of a Salafist is somewhat overstated.

I had someone on Twitter ask me how to draw robots, so I happily gave em a crash course on how I do it. I figured I would post it here since it may benefit some of you guys looking for an approach on how to tackle drawing the one thing on everyone’s WILL NOT DRAW on their commission info. 

Be sure to click on the images if you cant see em! 

I’m not necessarily good with infographics but I hope this is sort of self explanatory and easy to follow.

Just keep believing dudes, we’re all gonna make it!
