THE SUN WAS HIGH: DIY // Galaxy Jeans. I don't want to enter in a "I liked galaxies before it was cool to like them" monologue, but I've always been obsessed with outer space! My brother and I used to visit the local library and borrow tons of books about galaxies, spaceships and planets. The obsession stuck and now, even my design portfolio is filled with space-inspired pieces. There is something so fascinating and mysterious about coloured clouds, planets and stars... Galaxy print clothes have gained phenomenal popularity over the last three years, but oddly enough, they never made it to the racks of affordable chain stores.

This afternoon, I found a pair of old washed out black jeans I wore in high school and I decided to make my own non-pricey galaxy-inspired jeans! You'll need: - A pair of black jeans. . - A spray bottle filled with two parts bleach (javel) and one part cold water - Some acrylic paints. . - An old toothbrush - A sponge - Little containers/plates to mix the paint 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 30 game scripts you can write in PHP, Part 1: Creating 10 fundamental scripts. Getting started As both a game master/storyteller and a developer, I frequently find myself writing little utilities and scripts to help me when running, planning, and playing games. Sometimes I need a quick idea.

Other times, I just need a whole pile of names for Non-Player Characters (NPCs). Occasionally, I need to geek out on numbers, work out some odds, or integrate some word puzzles into a game. Many of these tasks become more manageable with a little bit of script work ahead of time. This article will explore 10 fundamental scripts that can be used in various types of games. We will blaze through these scripts pretty quickly. Back to top A basic die roller Many games and game systems need dice.

Rhythm and Meter in English Poetry English poetry employs five basic rhythms of varying stressed (/) and unstressed (x) syllables. The meters are iambs, trochees, spondees, anapests and dactyls.

Adam Had'em.

The Basic Forms To draw the head from any angle you must first understand its basic structure. Look past all the distracting details and visualize the underlying forms. This ability to simplify can be applied to the features of the face, but when starting the drawing you could look even further. Ignore even the features and simplify to the most basic form of the head. I use a method taught by Andrew Loomis in his book, “Drawing the Head & Hands”. The head deconstructed into its basic forms, is a sphere as the cranium and a block as the jaw and cheek bones. A Sphere as the Cranium The sides of the head are flat, so we can slice off a piece from both sides of the ball. A Block as the Jaw and Cheek Bones Attach the shape of the jaw. Constructing From Any Angle Step 1 – Determine the angle of the ball The angle of the head is established at the very beginning of the drawing with the ball.

X Axis - The up and down tilt is established by the angles of the horizontal and vertical lines in the oval. Woodworking Projects for Beginners. Get inspired. Practice. Improve your drawing skills!

The Phare du Monde: A Giant Spiral Tower You Can Drive On Popular Mechanics Although nobody gives two taint-scalding shits about them now, world expos used to be seriously big deals a few generations ago. Paris actually built the Eiffel Tower specifically for a world expo back in 1889, so when Paris was selected to host another expo in 1937, they wanted to outdo themselves.

And what tops an iconic thousand-foot metal tower? The Phare du Monde -- the Lighthouse of the World -- was designed by engineer Eugene Freysinnet to be placed in the center of Paris, despite the fact that Paris is over 100 miles from any ocean. Modern MechanixWho knew that's what Europe actually looked like from the air? That's no exaggeration, by the way -- the Phare du Monde's spiral ramp would have literally been 3.5 miles long.

In Andrew Myers’ latest series, the California-based sculptor uses up to 10,000 screws to create these jaw-dropping portraits. Indeed, the process is as painstakingly tedious as it looks, with each screw manually placed (at varying lengths) and painted. Andrew doesn’t use computer software to map out his portraits, it’s all by feel, treating each piece like a traditional sculpture. Check out the incredible work below and get a glimpse into the stages of the build, it is truly mind-blowing! Since his early childhood, Andrew Myers has been artistically influenced by European life and culture. Born in Braunshweig, Germany and raised in Ciudad Real, Spain, his exposure to modern continental living and classical architecture prompted the universal and classical themes, yet modern design found in his artwork.

Myers blends modern material with classical figurative technique featuring a universal subject matter that is prevalent throughout his work. Psychology of Color [Infographic] | WebpageFX Blog. Perhaps no choice is as vital to marketing as color. Whether you are selecting the color for a product or for your email marketing campaign, color has tremendous impact on all of us. Subconsciously, we associate different colors with different things. This infographic examines the psychology of color and looks at some common associations of different colors. It shows the overall importance of color to consumers and characteristics of many individual colors, and it also helps show the connection between graphic design and psychology.

The numbers are pretty fascinating! While color can be appealing to us visually, a lot more is going on behind the scenes than just an aesthetic.

Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim.

The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Designer: Ed Chew. How To Draw Hands Tutorials.
