Peering into Space : Finding Inspiration in Satellite Imagery (II)

@erb: I have always been fascinated by satellite images of our solar system. The textures and terrains of the planets, moons and asteroids around us (and beneath us) have often found their way into my drawings, and flipping through the images often sparks new ideas for my collection of short stories. In each post in this series, I will present one of my original drawings alongside a resource for incredible satellite images. I hope to spread the wealth of knowledge that can be found in these lesser-known resources and most importantly pass along that feeling of wonder we all experience when peering into outer space.

Character Design for @Steem.Apps // 스팀앱스 캐릭터 디자인

carrotcake: A steemit user and programmer @nhj12311 commissioned a character design so he can use for profile image on his @steem.apps account and GitHub page. He had a simple request: a cute character based on 3x3 cube. The silhouette of @steem.apps is obviously a square but I added a bit of curvatures on the silhouette for extra cuteness and bounciness.

Virtual Venice

@roused: Here is an amazing tool which allows you to experience Venice like never before – it is truly the next best thing to being there. Venice is a city without automobiles, a maze of narrow cobblestone alleyways, sidewalk, and countless bridges. If you've never been, you have the chance to experience Venice in virtual reality thanks to Google Street Maps. As implausible as it seems, Google found a way to capture the city with their high definition 360 degree cameras.

Epic Photoshoot

@GuyFawkes4-20: Last Saturday I was at a photo shoot with a couple of my colleagues since we’re finishing the year, our last year together, so we’re making albums as memories.

How Do Upvotes Work? When I Upvote Someone Does It Give Them My STEEM?

@jeffbernst: This might sound weird at first, but when you upvote someone on Steemit, DTube, or any other Steem app, you’re not giving them any of your STEEM. Everything in your wallet stays in your possession, so where does the STEEM come from?

[오늘의 English 단어] #52. 웃기는 짬뽕이 아니라 웃기는 뼈다귀! - Funny Bone

@bree1042: Today's expression is funny bone. OK, I know that there are more than two hundred bones in a human body, but what is a funny bone? Where is it located? Funny bone is the outer part of the elbow that may cause severe pain if you get hit. But it also means your sense of humor.

I would be super interested in any feedback, be it suggestions what to add, remittance to bad construction of individual sentences, or mere typos. Without further delay, behold the preface!


1968: 50 years later - Call for memories, impressions, opinions

@paolobeneforti: Probably most of you knows what happened in many western Countries during the 1968, and how deeply that impacted life, culture and politics in the following decades. If you are too young to know it - or you live in a Country absolutely untouched by those happenings - you can read it on Wikipedia.

Fraternity of Victims in Earthquake Areas

@ayijufridar: Earthquake disasters always seem to follow wherever Abdul Munir (27 years) left. While in Aceh, the young man from Blang Jruen, Tanah Luas sub-district, North Aceh district, suffered a devastating earthquake on December 26, 2004. An earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale followed by the tsunami killed more than 200,000 people in Aceh province (Indonesia), to the residence of Abdul Munir because the sea is far from his home. Abdul Munir survived the earthquake. When Abdul Munir moved to Padang City, West Sumatra, to study at the State University of Padang, he also experienced a magnitude 7.9 earthquake on 30 September 2009 ago. At that time, Munir and his friends just got back from campus. They sit around while enjoying Aceh coffee brought from the village. Suddenly they feel a tremendous shock.

Good post! Thanks for sharing it with us today @sndbox. I enjoyed reading it :)

The matter may not be clear to everyone, but you have written it very well.   You said the whole thing so beautifully that it can not be imagined. You can write a lot better, your praise will be reduced. Please let us know as you write it, hopefully you will give us a lot of great gifts.Stay tuned, stay with us. Keep it up your job. Thanks For Your Everything.

Thanks for your content written. I should to say you good job and well done. Keep it up!

Art and creativity are two things that can not be separated. Creativity is a part of art. From creativity, we can produce beautiful artwork and produce something new. Art is something beautiful. Art is all the results of deeds derived from human feelings poured out in various things or forms that have a value of beauty. A work of art is produced from human creativity. Creativity is a factor that will affect the work of art in giving birth to art ideas. Creativity itself, is our ability to take advantage of what we have. From this creativity, an artist can make a beautiful work.

Of these two things, we can see a mutual relationship between keduannya. Creativity can produce a work of art whereas art itself can not exist without creativity.

Late to this post, but sooo good to be part of it! Keep up the great work. Upped and resteemed! -Dan
