New page! Stayin’ in School PSA: THE AMBIVALENT CONCLUSION.
Sidenote: I’ve taken to almost always posting the full pages on Tumblr instead of cropped previews. By all means, visit the actual site to read through the archive or leave comments there — but since I don’t run ads, seems like there’s no big downside to people reading the latest update elsewhere as long as credits/context remain.

What program do you use to make your drawings? Or do you just do it by hand first cuz I'm trying to find a program to make my own comics

I’m terrible (like, cripplingly incapable) with traditional art because I sketch messy and can’t do anything without construction lines, so I’m all digital. Right now I’m in photoshop, but I’m thinking of switching to a lighter weight program since I have a tiny little program and PS eats a lot of memory with big files. Amazon is having a pretty steep sale on Manga studio right now and I’m thinking of switching to that, but I’ve never used it. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_9?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=manga+studio&sprefix=Manga+stu%2Caps%2C334 Gimp is free if you’re looking for something to start with http://www.gimp.org, but I haven’t used it in ages. And a used/refurbished tablet is definitely worth the money if you don’t have one already/aren’t sure about going digital. http://www.amazon.com/Wacom-CTL471-Bamboo-Splash-Tablet/dp/B008E0RSYY I have the tiniest Wacom bamboo with a 3x5 inch live area and it was a bitch to get used to, but it fits in my purse and I can drag it all over the house. Hope that helps!

spaceplasma:

Coronal rain

On July 19, 2012, an eruption occurred on the sun that produced a moderately powerful solar flare and a dazzling magnetic display known as coronal rain. Hot plasma in the corona cooled and condensed along strong magnetic fields in the region. Magnetic fields, are invisible, but the charged plasma is forced to move along the lines, showing up brightly in the extreme ultraviolet wavelength of 304 Angstroms, and outlining the fields as it slowly falls back to the solar surface.
