Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.
The Scott sisters will remain on parole and be required to pay the state of Florida $52 per month for the rest of their lives.
I think it is important to also mention that they were released under the condition that one sister donate an organ to the other sister to save her life after neglect and abuse by the prison staff caused her health to deteriorate.
Also, it should be noted that the witnesses to the crime repeatedly said that the sisters were not the ones who robbed the restaurant.
If I remember correctly, the two women are relatives of an activist, or something to that effect and may have been targeted just because the cops couldn’t get to the family member. As far as I recall, neither women were themselves activist.
Imma just let this sit here
MOTHA FUCKIN SCIENCE
They turned RNA into an anti-virus program. That is amazing.
Let me restate this in case it didn’t sink in the first time
Researchers physically DELETED ALL TRACES of the HIV virus from a human cell.
ALL OF IT.
IF YOU ARE NOT EXCITED ABOUT THAT I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HIV IS
I think really love perez raven or even the teen titan go raven is neat. This was my stab before i broke into comics from 2008.
L to r .
Raven , zatara, ravager, kiddevil and miss martian.
Wooow it’s so weird seeing Rose with a pixie cut…nice design though.
I went on a reverse google search to get a bigger pic of this and I actually like Rose’s design here. As far as fighting, an open tummy is a little… off, but just as far as appearances go, it’s cute. Though the little star tattoo above her hip threw me. XDD
Yeah the open belly makes about as much sense as Huntress’ belly window here, since she’s not invulnerable so she kind of needs the armor, but it is a cute design, and looking at the bigger image I’m actually really liking that pixie cut on her. It’s definitely jarring though considering the shortest her hair as ever been as been about shoulder or chin length.
And in case anyone else wants to see the higher resolution (right click -> open image):
Thanks for the higher resolution. I’ve decided that I pretty much totally love these designs, Rose and MM in particular. Kid Devil could use to be a li’l slimmer.
KD is pretty much the only one I don’t really like there. He’s a little too Hellboy with the big square jaw and the one extra powered arm it looks like. A little less Hellboy and a little more Nightcrawler and the design would probably work a lot better.
If anyone had said to me “imagine Rose in that kind of hair” I’d have given them a look that was too much in disbelief to be a “death glare”, but the thought would be there, lmao. Seeing it, though, it manages to work. I’d have sworn to the death “make Rose a pixie and I will kill you” but she makes it look good. ^_^
I was wondering what was off-putting about KD, and that’s about right! A balance of that NC/Hellboy look would be just right. In my head I imagine it as an opacity bar, but with Hellboy on one side, Nightcrawler on the other, and dragging it back and forth morphs Kid Devil into one or the other slowly across the bar. XD
Can’t believe I didn’t think of that, being a huge Nightcrawler fangirl…
(bad fangirl! *smacks with spoon*)
Yeah that would have been my reaction exactly xD Like “No don’t get rid of all her gorgeous hair noooooo”, but she totally pulls it off. She looks great in just about anything, apparently.
An opacity bar is the perfect way to to describe it lmao. Like a character creation slider in a video game, only instead of jaw width, or eye shape, it’s a HB/NC slider.
Whoa….remind me never to post anything old ever again. lol You win some and lose some i guess.
Kid Devil was too similar to night crawler back than so i wanted to a beefier builder to him. So that each titan had a different silhouette. Admit i was inspired the hellboy hand. Maybe both hands are hellboy hands. Or he has a hellboy foot.
I still like pixie cuts and i think allot of women in the marvel or dc universe deserve them or could pull them off. So thanks for that.
Would i redo them all different now? Probably. Its been ummm7 years since i drew this. Also styles have changed and costume choices have chained. My art has changed. My taste have changed. This person asked for raven lol but i should have just cropped the rest but was too lazy. However i would attempt raven different now too. Wish i had time.
Over a decade late to the party, but I finally finished reading PK2.
I now present you my thoughts on it:
"Everett, you son of a bitch! Down to the very last panel I hoped and hoped. I was sure there had to be a trick! Considering your driving motive for everything else I could not believe you…
I’m making my way through Legend of Korra and I LOVE IT
I love the original Gaang, Korra is simply different but not in a bad way. Now I’m in the middle of the second season and I’m astonished about how much hate Korra is getting in the comments. I frankly don’t understand. She’s headstrong, rash and makes mistakes… but that’s no different from Sokka, Zuko or even Aang, the beloved characters of the original serie. I’ve seen lot of people describe her as moody or “bitchy”. But I think that she’s just a normal teen put under a lot of pressure. I’m feeling that this hate has only one reason: she’s a girl.
*bully pushes you*
*you push bully back*
bully: wtf you piece of shit, that’s reverse bullying
everyone around you: yeah you cant fight hate with hate why can’t we all just be nice to each other
u know this literally happens right
kids get suspended for being bullied because they fought back or were considered a distraction to the bully it’s not just a metaphor it’s literally reality
so ugh sorry REPOSTING since i left out 2 pages w/ the most cohesive part on it. that’s what i get for putting posts together in early morning delirium
Finally getting around to posting some of my jotting down little story/headcanon scribble files.
It’s not all sequential, jumps forward in time and stuff, it’s not even headcanon too much since I have no basis for most any of this, mainly just an exercise in writing/another thing to make me sketch a lot lol.
So I really like Pema, or at least the idea of Pema seeing as she hardly has any screentime (though her season 1 stuff is p cute). There’s something really appealing to me in basically a nobody- a tiny, young, plain looking non-bender from who knows where- coming in and being like unfalteringly confident and undaunted by like.. anything honestly, as far as we’ve seen.
I started this bit with a couple rules and challenges, the first one being don’t make them unlikable haha, so therefore you have to diffuse some of the easy-to-make-creepy things about their relationship that the show only mentions. So the point where Pema confesses all this stuff would be after they’ve known each other for 5 years or so, she joined at 14-15 and she’s 20 when she talks to him about it. I imagine Acolytes move around temples so she’s lived at different ones including some time at ATI. She’s also Tenzin’s peer at that point, as much as an Acolyte can be, maybe helped with teaching or at least how to wrangle newbies better or something.
coming up next or eventually:
