polarizing lens

2

So as I stated on DA, I’m gonna remake all my PDxYYB Edits. I’ve decided to do them in waves, like I think i’ll be doing Rin and len first, then Kaito and Meiko, and then Luka and Miku (because I have the least amount of those). While.. Also throwing in a few unreleased ones in there with them. 

I also thought it might be really cute to do a palette change slider? Kinda like how fighting games have alt colors, ya know? I dunno if i’ll do it for all of them, but I’ll probably do it for most? 

Update details under the cut, because I don’t like long posts;;

Tweaked reference for his feet (made it better and tried to make the toes longer) and a revised headcanon in conjunction with galrannoodle: Some aquatic subspecies of Galra have nictitating membranes that are black instead of opaque white. Not only does this provide a sort of polarized lens effect that allows them surprisingly good eyesight against bright light reflecting off of water, it also shields the glow of their eyes, which is a useful attribute for saboteurs and assassins who otherwise might be given away by the bright yellow of Galra eyes.

Why would clouds appear to be different colors? The reason here is that ice crystals in distant cirrus clouds are acting like little floating prisms. Sometimes known as a fire rainbow for its flame-like appearance, a circumhorizon arc lies parallel to the horizon. For a circumhorizontal arc to be visible, the Sun must be at least 58 degrees high in a sky where cirrus clouds are present. Furthermore, the numerous, flat, hexagonal ice-crystals that compose the cirrus cloud must be aligned horizontally to properly refract sunlight in a collectively similar manner. Therefore, circumhorizontal arcs are quite unusual to see. This circumhorizon display was photographed through a polarized lens above Dublin, Ohio in 2009.

A minimalistic carry..This is what I had with me today at work. Not seen in pic are my Sony XB450 Headphones, Sandisk 32GB Extreme Flash drive, Sony 5000mAH Portable Charger, Field Notes Book, Dell Precision M3800 laptop and multiple chargers. These are in my CaseLogic SLR-C-206 backpack. I also have about 8 feet of paracord on a bracelet. Hope you guys enjoy my EDC and feel free to ask any questions..

Nope, he’s awake and a bit more awake now than before. “… you seemed to have gained something that I missed last night?”

“I made fun'a Len polar bear ears.” James grumbled, rolling until he hit a body to snuggle against. “Apparently that’s frowned on.” The jerks. Can’t a man laugh at something without getting in trouble for laughing? 

His ears flicked back up now that they didn’t have a reason to hide; it getting smushed against Hartley as the Trickster tried to bury into his neck to escape the, err, rather late morning. “They’ll go away eventually."
