Like all living things, humans are bioluminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts
i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what
"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow
science side of tumblr pls
I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.
10/10 time to answer
you are now offiicially from the science side of tumblr.
and thank you

So I decided to make my brushes available to download for a pay-what-you-want donation via Gumroad.
There are 5 brushes included with 3 variants:
- Braid Original - default, tight, and messy
- Braid Shine - default, tight and messy
- Braid Toon - default, tight, and messy
- Braid Solid
- Braid Blueprint (not pictured)
As someone who loves drawing detailed hair and is a perfectionist, I made these brushes to help expedite the process. These brushes do not replace being able to draw braids, and require a level of editing to look right. They are not meant to be slapped-down as is, unedited, into a final polished work - used alone they can render a drawing quite flat as they ignore light sources, and their level of detail my not match the illustration or your style. It is important to know how to touch them up and edit them. Another use for them is as sketches, guides and reference, which is what the Blueprint brush is explicitly for.
The blueprint brush in particular is meant to be used as a sketch or reference, not to replace drawing a braid.
Here are examples of the brushes being used with other brushes, as an example of how they can look with editing:
Below is a quick example used in conjunction with another natural hair brush set I’m working on as well. After putting the braids down with the brush, their details were simplified by drawing over them to match the level of detail of the rest of the drawing, and the start of the braid (where the hair is pulled in) was drawn in.
Holy hot damn, this is amazing. Thank you!
