line integral


I’m half-way finished making chapter 1!

Feels like slow going cause I’m still figuring stuff out & learnin - and can’t be happy with my work, yet. I haven’t felt this in a while, but with an old project like this it seems like it always feels better while you’re dreaming about it, and hard to replace those perfect vague ideas;; 

But anyway - feels good at least to be learning! Gonna get there slowly but surely.


FN FS2000

Civilian model of the F2000, this is one of the first generation models that included a factory optic. Although the gun has a sci-fi and futuristic appearance, the optic is very simple and straightforward. The polymer housing flows with the rest of the rifle’s lines to give an integrated silhouette but remove the top cover and it just looks like someone put a cheap little scope on it. If I’m not mistaken, all of the factory optic equipped rifles were black, even though FN sold an OD Green FS2000. (GRH)

“As a guitar player, [George] certainly had some nice and memorable licks on those Beatles tunes. Without being a virtuoso, he came up with really nice guitar lines that are integral parts of those tunes. But he had a multifaceted career as a personality. He wasn’t just a guitar player. And he did have a great sense of humor, and he did take it all with a huge pinch of salt, which is a very English and a very Liverpudlian thing.” - Mick Jagger, Rolling Stone, 17 January 2002 [x]

Calculus III: the Dirac Delta, a Bridge Between Dimensions

Today, I’m going to teach you a magic trick. This trick connects two very different tools from two very different worlds: the area integral of two-dimensional regions and the line integral of one-dimensional curves. The time has come to join these disparate items under a common framework.

Last week, we described how to find the length of a curve using a line integral. Today’s trick tells us how to find the length of a curve using a surface integral instead.

To accomplish this, we’re going to need something unlike anything we’ve seen before: an ethereal mathematical object called the Dirac delta distribution, which possesses the ability to bridge dimensions.

Come one, come all! The show is about to begin…

Towards Polaris

Last time when I drew something for Polaris, It was all about what I thought it was going to be, now that I have listened to it a few times, I drew what I thought would happen in the world of Polaris. I didn’t get to hear the pilots in action, but I did get an awesome genius pilot heroine (whose role is automatically filled by Haruka in my book).

So have a picture of the four main characters of Polaris, after successfully completing one of their missions, and some Tokiya and Haruka interaction.

I also really wanted to draw elaborate space-pilot jackets, individualized for each pilot (with number or name) but it demanded too much attention.

Hope you like!  I love working like this, integrating my lines in my colours.

okay last post on the topic I promise but

there’s already tons of accents that create the illusion of the dragon’s shape being altered. extra heads/limbs, missing limbs, changing the wings into other things entirely

so it’s okay to essentially change the shape of the dragon but only if you keep barely visible lines on there??

Does enforcing those barely-there lines really keep the integrity of the original design?? no it doens’t because IT STILL LOOKS LIKE ITS BEEN ALTERED

this is just plain ineffective.

NMR Spectroscopy 

What are these things?! All the lines! Splitting? Integration? This is the most confusing thing I’ve ever seen! OK, take it easy chief. Let Professor Dave take you through the very basics of interpreting NMR spectra.
