last four requests, all the requests were such a fun to draw! thank you a lot, guys! :3

Sam and Sam for mrblanchett (who wanted Sam Vimes but did not specify, so here are both because I love them so much ♥)
Ran and Hibi for iracher (sorry I don’t know anime Slayers, but I couldn’t refuse request for drawing my favorite manga, there is lot of them though, but Ran to Haiiro no Sekai is certainly one them <3)
Luke for Anonymous (I’m so glad I’ve finally got opportunity to draw him, I have always been so in love with him :D)
and the book scene where the trio goes to visit dog Sirius during their hogsmead trip for zoosemiotics :3

I’m so sorry to all of you whose requests I didn’t manage to draw, maybe next time ^^

DOLBEAR'S LAW

In 1897 Amos Dolbear published an article titled The Cricket as a Thermometer. In it, he stated that the rate at which the snowy tree cricket chirps is directly correlated to the air temperature.

Are there snowy tree crickets around here? I gonna say… no? But we do have the common field cricket, and Dolbear’s law can be applied to them as well. The correlation is not as reliable, but it’s a close-enough approximation for when you need to know the air temperature in a pinch and do not have a thermometer, a friend with a thermometer, a smart phone with a signal, or a friend with a smart phone with a signal but DO have a stopwatch and sufficient hearing.

Just count the number of chirps chirped by a single cricket in fifteen seconds. Then add forty. The sum is the air temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. I seriously just did this last night and it was right on. Dolbear’s law is especially useful in determining whether a cricket is inside your home or not.

Dolbear’s law is NOT useful when it’s, say, 40 or below outside. Which I wish it was right now. Fucking insects.
