“This week’s post isn’t entirely scientific, but I thought I’d upload it anyway since it’s related to animals and patterns in nature.
When I worked in an insect lab as an undergrad, I helped out with an experiment about mosquito larvae. As part of the process we used a Matlab program to manually input the larva’s location during thousands of video frames.
It was a fun experiment, and I wanted to make something similar from Youtube videos. I found slow-motion videos of five flying species, and mapped out specific points on the wings during one wingbeat. I ended up with 15 frames per wingbeat, and I connected every frame using imaginary curves that went through all of the 15 mapped points.
Of course, 15 frames isn’t nearly enough for any kind of factual conclusion, so this week’s post is just an art exersize. But hopefully you can enjoy this as an artistic pattern based on real life :)
P.S. My next post will be more grounded in fact, so don’t worry if you weren’t that into this art post.”

I call him a whiny baby but if I got a tracker cut out of my arm I’d probably be crying too so

Low poly model with a quick sun applied - I’m in the middle of unwrapping everything, and hopefully I’ll be able to start adding textures soon!

Sketchy sketches of a friend’s OC and his newly-added evil eyebrows. Behold his many expressions: happy-evil, surprised-evil, sad-evil, and neutral-evil. Ah yes.

And here we have “Portrait of an Art Student,” a stunning piece of photographic artistry in which we see the inherent futility and desperation of higher education as the student uses a $4000 school camera and tripod as a stand for their phone - which shoots higher quality video.
