Also, just throwing this out there to make people sad, but…
When he’s thawed out he’s laying down. He was frozen laying down. And the plane hit the water when he was in the pilot seat- we saw that.
Which means he wasn’t knocked out by the initial impact. And it doesn’t look like he drowned, either. He had time to see his expected death coming, after the impact, and lay himself down. My guess is some internal injuries from the crash, followed by freezing to death inside the plane.
So just go ahead an add a little scene in your head of Steve surviving the crash, but knowing that wet and isolated on a field of ice, in a plane that’s still sinking, nobody would get to him in time. But he knows he’s done his job. So he lays down, and closes his eyes, and maybe wonders if anyone will ever find his body, and bring it back to be buried by his mom and dad, since Bucky never was buried. But either way they’ll have a service for him, and that will be nice, and the priest will say the words and he’ll be at rest. And he feels bad, leaving his men, and he regrets everything he never told Peggy, and that he won’t be there for her now, but at least he did his part, right? He got the job done, and that’s what counts. If he dies alone, bleeding out and freezing, that’s all that Bucky got, to. So that’s all right.
except steve is an orphan so technically this is his burial. At least this way no over achieving scientists could deface his body for research once he was finally at rest.
When Van Gogh was a young man in his early twenties, he was in London studying to be a clergyman. He had no thought of being an artist at all. he sat in his cheap little room writing a letter to his younger brother in Holland, whom he loved very much. He looked out his window at a watery twilight, a thin lamppost, a star, and he said in his letter something like this: “it is so beautiful I must show you how it looks.” And then on his cheap ruled note paper, he made the most beautiful, tender, little drawing of it.
When I read this letter of Van Gogh’s it comforted me very much and seemed to throw a clear light on the whole road of Art. Before, I thought that to produce a work of painting or literature, you scowled and thought long and ponderously and weighed everything solemnly and learned everything that all artists had ever done aforetime, and what their influences and schools were, and you were extremely careful about *design* and *balance* and getting *interesting planes* into your painting, and avoided, with the most astringent severity, showing the faintest *academical* tendency, and were strictly modern. And so on and so on.
But the moment I read Van Gogh’s letter I knew what art was, and the creative impulse. It is a feeling of love and enthusiasm for something, and in a direct, simple, passionate and true way, you try to show this beauty in things to others, by drawing it.
And Van Gogh’s little drawing on the cheap note paper was a work of art because he loved the sky and the frail lamppost against it so seriously that he made the drawing with the most exquisite conscientiousness and care.– Brenda Ueland, If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence and Spirit (via raggedybearcat)

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.

From シマカワ. The artist describes the tutorial as a simple guide for drawing naturally muscular men for artists who find the complicated anatomy tutorials used by professionals too difficult.

Have you ever got a call from your mother to come fix her computer only to find she has a virus invested machine? Maybe she told you her Internet was down but come to find out she just deleted the IE6 icon. Better yet, maybe she forked over a ton of cash for that awesome gadget you’ve been wanting but just lets it collect dust…yeah, we all have those females in our life…here are 25 examples:
Okay. Remove Female. Because THIS. THIS IS MY DAD!!!!
My step mother has banned him from touching the home computer. My GRANDPARENTS are far more tech savvy then him. MY DAD IS THIS MEME!!!

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1. I am glorious above all things
2. Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3. Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4. Show displeasure clearly.
6. Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7. If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
yep. I’m a cat in a human shell.
This photoset was inspired by Journey - one of the greatest games ever. Fates of Meltiar and Ishita are very similar to the wayfarers journey. Both of them wanted to help their world and gave themselves to the light.
So here they are: Ishita as white wayfarer and Meltiar as red wayfarer. Ishita is Soom Jet and belongs to Ando Gro and Jetau and Meltiar is Luts 2012 summer event head and belongs to me.
AAAAAA AAAAA AAAAAAAAA
BJD’s AND Journey?!?!?!!? O_O <3 <3 <3

This photoset is especially for the folks who voted for my next project to be Sam Wilson. So here he is…just in time for him to stop being Falcon and become the new Cap! (No rest for the wicked.) I went with a t-shirt and 511s instead of the official uniform. He was already going to be complicated, and he can go casual now too. His wings are detachable, and his guns are attached via little magnets. I hear Anthony Mackie’s sister knits. Maybe she will see this!
HOLY CRAP THIS IS AWESOME
