Happy weekend everyone!

I'm in a bit of a hurry, it'll Thor o'clock soon, and I've got to get to the theater. But I wanted to ask, I'm thinking about starting doing commissions again and I was wondering how many of you guys might be interested.

Informal survey, nothing is set in stone yet especially not prices or content we'd be talkin' about. But I'm going to be able to do even more art stuff soon and I'm wondering what kinds of art stuff that'll be.

Anycase, keep an eye out for updates at http://psuedofolio.tumblr.com

Have fun everyone!

Nope, because Light can be dispersed anywhere without changes. Gravity is only existant in planets, thus leading to my conclusion that it isn't affected because light has no mass.

Light can be affected by Gravity. Light is simply consisted of photons moving at very high velocities. These Photons can be pulled back due to the enormous gravitational pull generated by a star.

God damn why am I always wrong ;_;

Pretty nice comic, you got linked through /tg/ I had a laugh about the 1-2 related references from us there.
Love the blank thinking 'That's a good question but whats the answer?' expressions everyone have after the duck states his queries.

Light exists as a particle and a wave thus gravity is capable of altering its trajectory. This is why light bends around dark matter and other large masses.

loquaciousbanana (Guest), May 07, 2011, 12 am


Although gravity has the power to bend light, the speed of light remains constant in all reference frames.

So, if there's a really large mass, the light gets bent but still travels at the same speed.

I'm always surprised that everyone always answers the questions. I think I've known about three.

Also I would be very interested in commissions.

Gravity can alter the direction in which light travels, but not its speed. The speed of light (denoted as "c") is constant in all reference frames.

Speaking of commissions, a fa/tg/uy was actually asking today if you did them.

Haideesu (Guest), May 07, 2011, 02 am

I thought light slowed down when it travels through things such as water...so the speed of light is only constant in a vacuum.

Sebastian (Guest), May 07, 2011, 12 pm

Light remains at a constant speed. It travels at the same rate underwater but does not penetrate it as easily as a vacuum. The caustic light effects seen at the bottom of a body of water are from curved surfaces refracting beams of light.

Similarly, gravity does not affect the speed of light but alters its trajectory, curving it. (However, this does not involve refraction.)

Sildraug, May 07, 2011, 12 pm

This question brings us to the difference between speed and velocity--speed is purely 'rate of travel,' meaning it's a ratio of distance traveled per unit time (meters per second, miles per hour, feet per minute, fathoms per tick). Velocity is speed with a direction--if an object turns in its path but remains at a constant speed (like the Earth revolving around the sun), its velocity is still changing.

I love how I follow this comc religiously, yet never try to answer the questions.

Totema (Guest), May 07, 2011, 11 pm


The speed of light is affected by the density of the medium it is traveling through. In most circumstances, the force of gravity is too weak to affect the density of anything. But in the case of things along the line of black holes, they are so massive, and their personal gravity is so freaking strong, that their volume approaches zero and thus their density approaches infinity. Light passing by one of these things will literally be unable to escape it.

Please tell me this is your depiction of the Emerald Isle. Please.

@The Hankerchief

Like most of Question Duck with a few exceptions, a lot of the locations should be considered "inspired by" this or that place. Some feature very specific locations or landmarks. This one in particular features no such specific distinctive field or castle.

That said, it was definitely inspired by those wonderful Irish greens and their ancient places. I should like to do more, if there's any place that still evokes the old medieval western world at a glance it would be Ireland.

The_Hankerchief, May 09, 2011, 11 pm

I love it. My Great grandmother's parents emigrated to America from Ireland (Kerry County, to be specific) when she was 10 years old, and before she passed away, she'd always tell us what it was like to be a kid in Ireland. Wonderfully nostalgic page. Thank you!

To an outside observer, a ray of light bent by gravity would apear to be slower than one not.

Ishtar (Guest), Jul 02, 2014, 01 pm

Recently Steven Hawking said that according to the latest calculations and observations, that light in fact may be able to escape the gravity well of a black hole, something previously thought impossible.
