An autogyro is characterised by a free-spinning rotor that turns due to passage of air upwards through the rotor. The vertical component of the total aerodynamic reaction of the rotor gives lift for the vehicle, and sustains the autogyro in the air.
Whereas a helicopter works by forcing the rotor blades through the air, pushing air downwards, the autogyro rotor blade generates lift in the same way as a glider’s wing by changing the angle of the air as it moves upwards and backwards relative to the rotor blade. The free-spinning blades turn by autorotation; the rotor blades are angled so that they not only give lift, but the angle of the blades causes the lift to accelerate the blades’ rotation rate, until the rotor turns at a stable speed with the drag and thrust forces in balance.
I accidentally deleted yesterday’s (Picture) post.
Here it is:
Nestor here, linked the image to the topwebcomics voting button, youâ€™ll get the fullsize image once you vote, mwahaha.

We were discussing popular webcomics and I mentioned Lackadaisy Cats to Hyung and jokingly suggested he turn the comic into an anthro thing because cats are popular on the interwebs. So he came up with this.
Itâ€™s actually not bad, it kinda reminds me of Sherlock Hound, an old anime by Miyazaki that was pretty good (And also kinda steampunk in many ways) so maybe the idea has potential??
Thought that perhaps I could go faster if I dropped color and stuck to black and white.
But, really the way I tone… it’s about the same…
Save a few hours per strip, but not much.
Maybe the way manga’s usually done with one or two shade, but that’s really cheap and my drawings, rather the line quality I care to use, can’t seem to support it.
Anyway, color’s more pretty.
So it’s fast as I can go, with the final goal of daily pages when I can get my groove going…
Time lapse vid’s coming up, for now take a look at his trailer for a very serious movie that shared the cinema halls with Godfather, Au Pair Girls (1972).
