The Sun-Brella by CalamityChemist The Sun-Brella by CalamityChemist
Cecil’s doing a little inventing—stringing lights up in the inside of an umbrella. This is totally self-explanatory...isn’t it?

Ok, maybe not. Behold, the sunbrella! For those dark nights when you just HAVE to go out and have a picnic. Oh Cecil, everything you invent is so useful! \sarcasm forever

I really enjoyed playing with lighting on this one...as usual (oh gosh I need to go to lighting rehab). c: It’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it was good practice!

I hope you guys enjoy it! :heart:

Cecil Bates belongs to me. c:

Haha, I'd take it on my nighttime walks, too! And actually, the lightbulbs use a little generator in the handle, so they can stay on as long as you keep turning the generator.

Aww, thank you <3 I'm glad you like it!

Ho ho! I didn't know Cecil was an inventor. 8D Wait... is he? 0_o. I realize now I don't know much about him. FORGIVE ME JEN!!!! /failshard But back to this picture I am simply in love with all the details in this. The pointy lightbulb ends and their bottom, the way the texture is a bit heavier in the shading. Yes. SO awesome. <3 And such a clever invention too. <3333

Aha, he is indeed! You are forgiven--it is I that has failed for not providing more conclusive information. D':

Thank you so much! I wanted the bulbs to have an old-timey feel, and I remembered that old bulbs were more...well, pointy! And lol, the cleverest of inventions, indeed. XD

I am confused by how the lights are powered. I shall assume they are powered from a mix of ignorance and pure awesome.

Also when you said Cecil Bates belongs to me I pictured a fan girl coming out of nowhere and going "NO! MINE!" grabbing him and running off.

If you don't know that lights require electricity, then they don't! Though actually, these lights do have a power source. Ever seen those emergency flashlights where you twist a crank to charge them, and they light up? That's like these! Just twist the lower part of the handle several times, flip the switch and it lights up. The power of dynamo generators! (I'm the biggest nerd ever oh gosh...)

....oh gosh, why can I totally imagine that happening...eh, you win some, you lose some.
