Scientists from MIT Developed a Trillion frames per second slow motion camera that can show light moving through a bottle. Ramesh Raskar presents femto-photography - For comparison, the imaging of a bullet captured at this many frames per second would last a year as explained in thepresentation by Professor Ramesh Raskar of MIT.

Community service announcement for artists: 

There is no such thing as a “Free Commission” or “Paid Request”.

You are either selling commissions, or offering free requests. But there is no need to put “paid” or “free” qualifiers before either a Commission or a Request. 

com·mis·sion  

On commission

With a sales commission serving as full or partial recompense for the work done: sells boats on commission.
re·quest 
tr.v. re·quest·edre·quest·ingre·quests
1. To express a desire for; ask for. Often used with an infinitive or clause: requested information about the experiment; requested to see the evidence firsthand; requested thatthe bus driver stop at the next corner.
2. To ask (a person) to do something: The police requested her to accompany them.
Commissions are by definition paid. Requests are by definition free. Why is it important to use the correct terms? In order to protect yourself and your buyers from confusion. Ensure you get paid when you intend to be paid and to ensure your customers fully understand what is expected of them. Mixing up the terms affects the artist community at large. If a customer has only ever been getting “free commissions”, he then expects commissions offered by other artists to be free as well.

Please!
What are you paying for? If it’s for an item that is physically being shipped to you, then by all means continue!
But if it is for digital art, please reconsider!

This means that paypal is expecting me to ship a physical item to you!
And the more…

This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph. 

Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.

If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.

And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.

People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.

Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.

:Free: Potato Icon by Spudfuzz

I like to make quick little pixel icons like this in my down time, but sometimes I struggle to think of what to make and it’s not as fulfilling to make something no one wants to use. Besides things like people’s individual characters (these take much longer to do and can impede on my real projects), what kind of pixel icons would you want to see?

Foods, drinks, nature, objects, words etc? This is a long winded way of saying I take suggestions lol.
