Kanlit Chakti(means ”Silver-blooded woman”. Kanlit Chakto means ”Silver-blooded man”.)
Kanlit Chakti is actually a name for a Queen of the Kulkania Empire (silver-blooded because in my story royal people have silver blood that makes them different ).
This is yet another character design for my book.There was a male person standing next to her, a King, but I didn’t like him so she is alone! ^^ Btw this drawing took me ages! Like few days! I changed her design 10 times!And yeah, Kukani people (they live in Kulkania but are called Kukani) are actually dark skinned and resemble Nubian people.Hope you like her! :)

Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.Frankentrees.

As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:

i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense

yes

pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?

BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

OHANA MEANS FAMILY

FAMILY MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND
