happy birthday grandpa rogers!
Happy 4th of July!
Their comedy aprons make me so happy :D
can something not be about the supernatural fandom for once?
Halfway through explaining to requiodile how they’d done the arm prop for TWS I realised I was quoting info from the artbook that I hadn’t seen on Tumblr. So here you go!
"What the directors described was an arm almost beyond what Tony Stark could do now, the highest tech possible, so whoever had replaced Winter Soldier’s arm was beyond what even our main technological hero of the Marvel Universe could accomplish," Meinerding says. "That allowed us to go with the horizontal cut lines across the arm, something fairly traditional in the Marvel Universe, so it was kind of cool to be able to do it on-screen."
Shane Mahan, Physical Suit Effects Supervisor at Legacy Effects, describes the process of creating the Winter Soldier’s arm from a life-cast of actor Sebastian Stan: “First, we do an exact mold of the actor’s arm for the size and the dimension, and then we do a casting out of that. But we also took him to get a 3-D scan of his arm, so we had digital information as well as a hard, real-world casting to work from. We took the designs from Ryan Meinerding’s design team, and then one of our digital artists here — Won-il Song — created a digital sculpture.”
"I designed this to be a seamless forearm piece," Mahan continues. "And after the digital sculpture has been done, and the part has been grown and cleaned up, it matches up to a bicep piece. One of our artists, Chris Swift, is pictured testing it."
Legacy created two versions of the Winter Soldier’s arm. “We made one from foam rubber with tracking markers on it for extreme action,” Mahan says. “And then there were these arms made of urethane that were metalized and had less action mobility, but for certain shots looked reflective and really great.”
More scans etc. here.
yo good luck beating this in 2015
yeah ok but what does weaboo even mean
like who just said one day
"YUP AND THEY WILL BE CALLED…
and everyone else went along with it
ok quick history lesson
so on 4chan the word “wapanese” was used to refer to dumb anime nerds. white boy wannabe japanese. makes sense.
A mod got pissed at it being used so much and said that the next person to use it would get banned, so the boards decided to use a silly nonsense word to replace it.
by complete general consensus, the boards picked the word “weeaboo” from a perry bible comic.
henceforth, “weeaboo” was used in replacement of “wapanese”.
I have learned so much
okay so ridic thing someone should write for me
- Tony hate hate hates magic, right?
- it makes no sense it’s not science it doesn’t work but it does work…
- WHY THE FUCK DOES IT WORK?!?!?!
- Tony does ‘magic’ research on the side because he firmly believes that any sufficently advanced tech is indistinguishable from magic and that means
- MAGIC IS TECH
- TONY IS KING OF TECH
- TONY WILL HACK MAGIC OR DIE TRYING
- in the course of his research Tony buys something that is claimed to be a dragon’s egg
- Tony thinks it’s neat, makes some Mogwai jokes, sticks it under a heat lamp, expecting a lizard to come out
- Thor sees a pic of Tony’s lab
- recognizes the egg as an actual dragon egg
- AND PROMPTLY FREAKS THE FUCK OUT
- BECAUSE THIS SPECIES OF DRAGON
- (of course there are more than one species of dragon, I pity your ignorance earthling, get thee to a library)
- IMPRINTS ON THE FIRST PERSON IT SEES AND IT’S NOT JUST ‘THAT’S MY MAMA’
- THEIR PERSONALITY, MORALITY, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT IS BASED ON THAT FIRST IMPRESSION
- Thor may not be the brightest blade to grace the universe but he is really, really not stupid and thinks a dragon based on Tony Stark is a BAD IDEA
- so he flies over to the Tower in a panic
- only to find that it’s all right
- it’s okay
- the dragon’s hatched
- and the first person it ever saw was Pepper
I made an actual out-loud whimper of joy at that last line.
You need a CBR reader to view it so just plug that into google and go nuts
- Doctor Who
- Peter Pan
- Harry Potter
- Soap Operas
