Tuesday Tips - Power Shading

Here’s a technique I use often when attending life drawing sessions, especially nude sessions. I feel like it gives an energy and direction as well as clear volume to the figure. The more i know about underlying muscles, bones and general body structure, the more I can express through this technique. It’s kind of like a classic brush work when dealing with ink. It’s just more forgiving when using a Conte stick, by varying the angle and pressure of it.

Try it out!

TAKE A GREEN BREAK / Sok Hwee

Take a green break is a project that hopes to encourage and inspire urbanites to incorporate more nature into their breaks. Nature can enhance the effects of taking breaks thus, in this fast-paced society where our lives are increasingly dominated by work and screen time, urbanites can tap on the restorative power of nature to compliment their stressful living.

New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.



Fucking Wow!

SO COOL SCIENCE IS COOL
