this is art unrelated but how long have you been in the phandom? and have u ever felt yourself drifting out of it? sorry for this random pry into your life lol

I’ve been here since 2011. 

Nah I don’t feel like I’m drifting out of it really, but maybe my activity is changing? I mean, I was involved with three major phan-related projects within the last two years - the Phanime episode 3 with @arctoids last Feb, then the zine with @maddox-rider in 2016, then recently the @tatinof-illustration. So I haven’t been making as much quick phanart as I used to (been drawing other things like Voltron hahaha oops), and school has been busy as well, but I still feel very involved! I don’t see myself leaving the phandom anytime soon. Dan and Phil are HUGE inspirations to me, as well as all the phanartists I’ve made friends with :) 

being on this website since 2011 feels like being that dog in that one movie where he reincarnates. like i feel like i’ve lived five hundred separate and distinct lives and also died four hundred and ninety nine times and also like i’ve watched history unfold from the beginning of man

Scientists discover a new nodosaur dinosaur species, and the specimen has perfectly preserved skin

  • An equipment operator at an oil mine in Alberta, Canada, found some unusual buried treasure in 2011 — a roughly 110 million-year-old, dragon-like dinosaur with its armored, spiky skin still intact.
  • Now, scientists understand the true weight of that discovery — the specimen, called a nodosaur, makes way in the encyclopedia for an all-new genus and species.
  • It’s a type of ankylosaur that lived during the Cretaceous period, and this specimen is about 18 feet long and about 3,000 pounds, according to National Geographic. Plus, it’s extremely rare for scientists to have more than the bones of a specimen to work with.
  • “We don’t just have a skeleton,” Caleb Brown, a postdoctoral researcher at Royal Tyrrell Museum, told National Geographic. “We have a dinosaur as it would have been.” Read more (5/16/17)

A kind person asked me to post some of my older works so here’s a little compilation! The top row is “frontal, hands behind back, pencil only” drawings, middle is the dawn of digital art, and bottom are my most recent pictures.

Reported on February 8th, 2017, this orange alligator was spotted in Hanahan, South Carolina. Much like the alligator of the same color that was photographed in 2011, there are a few causes that could have made this creature the color it appears. Jay Butfiloski, the Department of Natural Resources’ Alligator Program Coordinator, believes that the alligator might be this color because of where it was residing during the colder months. He said “[It] might be iron oxide that has discolored it" after it had been living in a rusty pipe. Others believe it could be because of the high amount of clay deposits in the area. However Butfiloski does not deny that this could be a new color mutation entirely.
