January: The Old Moon – Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside of villages. Thus, the name for January’s full Moon. Most commonly know as Full Wolf Moon, or the Moon After Yule.
February: The Storm Moon – Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February’s full moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult.
March: The Sugar Moon – As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. It marks the time of tapping maple trees. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full moon of winter.
April: The Growing Moon – This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. It’s a time when things begin to grow.
May: The Flower Moon – Flowers spring forth in abundance this month. Some Algonquin tribes knew this full moon as the Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon.
June: The Honey Moon – The Algonquin tribes knew this moon as a time to gather ripening strawberries.
July: The Mead Moon – July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur.
August: The Lighting Moon – The sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. Others called it the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon.
September: The Fruit Moon – This full moon corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, because it is the time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley. The Harvest Moon is the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox, which can occur in September or October and is bright enough to allow finishing all the harvest chores.
October: The Travel Moon – This is the month when the leaves are falling and the game is fattened. Now is the time for hunting and laying in a store of provisions for the long winter ahead.
November: The Frost Moon – Also know as the Full Beaver Moon, and was known as the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.
December: The Winter Moon – This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This full moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes.

I haven’t seen anyone on my dash talking about this and that’s a fucking crying shame because Duolingo is the shit. You can use Duolingo to learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese. Even…

If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you

Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!

You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2  and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.

Hey Crime Writers - don’t just have your detectives say bland things like “the fingerprints matched” - use correct terminology and make your writing precise. Here’s a cool little fingerprint chart to get you started.

Hey guys! Here’s a good, FREE art program with some amazing fluid features! Go to 7:00 to see some examples of how the program works.

If Photoshop is too expensive for you, this program—Verve—might be just the ticket! And I swear, people are getting texture effects I’ve never seen come out of Photoshop proper. 

Even if you don’t feel like you need it, recommend it to your friends who might! It does require a fairly recently graphics card, but the size of the program itself is very small, so if you have a laptop for example it might be just the thing. 

Soooo if you haven’t heard of this yet you’re in for a treat because this piece of programming is a lot of fun to mess around with 8) It’s really unlike any art program I’ve used so far

this is my messy try out of it and there’s a learning curve but it’s seriously fun 8D
