Artist Shintaro Ohata Seamlessly Blends Sculpture and Canvas to Create 3D Paintings
When first viewing the artwork of Shintaro Ohata up close it appears the scenes are made from simple oil paints, but take a step back and you’re in for a surprise. Each piece is actually a hybrid of painted canvas and sculpture that blend almost flawlessly in color and texture to create a single image. The cinematic figures are sculpted from polystyrene while the backgrounds are made from traditional painting techniques.

Realistic Pokemon by RJ Palmer
Pokemon are serious business and we’re lucky to have dedicated artistic professionals like RJ to portray their true anatomies, backed up by science: Bulbasaur isnt a frog, you silly cartoonists, he’s got “SAUR” in his name, and if you’re familiar with these things we call dinosaurs, you’ll know that means big fuggin’ lizard. RJ’s depictions place most of the pokemon somewhere in the Permian to late Triassic, with Pokemon Trainers used as scale (though whether Pokemon Trainers existed in Prehistory is debatable).
Spirited Away - by Michal Teliqa
Everyone seemed to be talking about the anatomical concerns of having and arc reactor yesterday, and it reminded me of the big long post I wrote about it forever ago where I came to the conclusion that there’s a lot more metal in Tony’s chest than we can see. So have a painting.

”When a whale dies, the story has just begun. - animated paper art, Awesome.
Scientific, cutesy and a little bit creepy.
This is an accompanying video to a segment from the latest Radiolab epsiode: Loops.
The story of what happens to a whale after it dies is one of the most fascinating ones they have ever told on that show. I hope I don’t need to convince you that Radiolab is the best show on audio, but if so, head on over and listen to this one!
This carcass can support a whole ocean floor ecosystem for years!!
