I made a tutorial about mixing colors when painting! It’s really long and rambly and probably repeats itself a lot, but maybe it’ll be helpful to somebody. It’s intended for people who already have a basic understanding of color theory, so I might recommend this tutorial by gawki if you don’t already know the basics.

The (West Antarctic Ice) Sheet Has Hit The Fan
Well, now we’ve done it.
This week, two scientific teams reported that the collapse and melt of large portions of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet now appears unstoppable. As in irreversible, inevitable, and more than partially our fault. There’s enough water in the unstable ice sheet to raise global sea levels by four feet on its own, and combined with other sources of melt, this could raise sea levels as much as ten feet over the next few centuries. 
I’ll give you a moment, in case that didn’t sink in.
As Chris Mooney writes at Mother Jones, “This is what a holy shit moment for global warming looks like.”
The acceleration of the ice sheet’s melting is due to warming ocean currents, destabilizing the ice from beneath and speeding up its collapse. Because of the particular geography of the region, this rapid chain reaction of melting can not be stopped. If greenhouse gas levels continue to rise, this melting will only speed up.
If there’s any silver lining to this news, it’s that it’s not clear how fast this will happen. Ice sheets move slowly (being made of ice and all), so the melt could play out over hundreds of years. Still, it’s the clearest sign yet that we have irreversibly affected the global climate, and we must do something.
Every day that we spend faux-debating the validity of climate change science is another day closer to an inevitably wet future. Would you rather build a boat or tread water?
For more coverage, check out the NY Times, these two pages from NASA, or just Google “West Antarctic Ice Sheet oh shit we’re fucked”
PS - The image up top shows what Times Square would look like with 6 feet or so of sea level rise. Just so you know what to expect. Check out more at worldunderwater.org

This is probably the coolest GIF I’ve ever seen.

now there’s some perspective.

I once saw a storm roll like this once. It was beautiful.

It was sunny as my friend and I were walking to another friends house and I hear this roar, look over and it’s a hail storm coming right at us and within seconds we were running in it to get away.

Let me go really out of fandom to let you know about this korean movie, called Leafie, a hen into the wild [Watch it here xxx] it’s so fulfilled of emotions and feels… It’s a story about mothers, and sacrifice, and love.

You will appreciate it, I swear.

I had to delete some junk off the end of the url so it just ended in html but it worked! And the site seems to be safe from what I looked up. /o/

Watch for the bishonen ducks.
