How the 3D printer economy toppled. Follow melonmemes on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/realmelonmemes
people joke about this but this is literally how you build 3d printers other than buying them. buy the microcontroller, spools, metal framing, LCD screen(s), and print bed, 3d print the chassis of the thing, and then wrestle with firmware on the microprocessor for a few days and hey presto a new 3d printer. i know at least 4 people who have built their own like this
3D printers are the only known species of printer to reproduce asexually
you wouldn’t download a printer
how to draw arms ? ?
holy fuck is right… but… does it work with legs???
but how much extend
I NEARLY CHOKED
finally. i can be accurate
This is too fucking great to not reblog
I give it MASCLES
Okay but for anyone who legit wants to know how to calculate it correctly:
The elbow joint on average rests a couple inches higher than the navel, so if you measure how long the distance is from the middle of the shoulder to that point then you have the length of the upper and fore arms!
So if anyone’s wondering about legs too, the simplest rule of thumb is that the length from the top of the leg to the knee is equal to the distance between the top of the leg and the bottom of the pectorals:
And I wanna stress that when i say “top of the leg” i’m not talking about the crotch (please don’t flag me tumblr it’s an anatomical term) i’m talking about the point where the femur connects to the pelvis, which is higher up on the hips:
It’s easier to see what I’m talking about in this photo of a man squatting:
So yeah if you use that measurement when using this technique you should get fairly realistically proportioned legs:
But remember! messing with proportions is an important and fun part of character design! Know the rules first so you can then break them however you please!
HOW THE HELL DID I FIND THIS POST OMG
Licherally in the midst of drawing a guy and crying at how bad the arms are. Thanks Tumbles
I only ever saw the part where people started drawing the limbs outrageously long and genuinely wanted to know how to fix that, so I’m really thankful to see the rest.
Wrapping up this Bobcat skull for mystery boxes. His worn tooth is a really great opportunity to talk about this.
When we talk about first world problems we usually think about something trivial, but the changes in diet that lead to changes in anatomy are some real first world problems.
