2- Irritated that my FemShep runs like she has a sausage and eggs between her legs even though she's clearly a woman.
3- Annoyed that Shepard is carrying a gun in a cutscene that I didn't equip him with (where did he get it from??).
4- Irritated that the piece of armor that would give me great stats is just plain ugly and would ruin my outfit.
5- Irritated that wearing a helmet would increase my stats but I refuse to wear it because I then can't see my Shepard speak.
6- Upset at having to kill defenseless pyjaks to get a discount from the Krogan store.
7- Irritated that to play Mass Effect 1 again I would have to sit through all that pointless driving around in the goddamn Mako.
8- Annoyed that Jack won't get together with my FemShep even though I thought for sure she'd be the one female in the game that would.
9- Annoyed at Liara for giving me fifty c
The Thane MOD *Keep Thane Alive***FINAL UPDATE**The Thane MOD *Keep Thane Alive*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The day has arrived, and users are now able to download the ThaneMOD from nexusmods , and moddb . *Remember: the Installation Guide included with all packages is your friend.* There is yet one more surprise....Ottemis, one of the original creators of the Thane inspired Hoodie, has graciously extended her Texture library by creating brand new (and exclusive for the ThaneMOD) Thane-centric HR Hoodies. These are available for BOTH genders. Currently they are being offered through the nexusmod site, along side of the ThaneMOD. We will eventually include them directly with the "packages", in our next version release. Thank you for this wonderful addition.
Over the past 10 months, the ThaneMOD team has had Eurekas! and set backs. We

Drell female officially revealed - Irikah Krios in ME Foundation
Do you remember lieutenant Abrudas from ME:Evolution comic? Yes, that was the first Turian female even shown during the cycle of Mass Effect trilogy.
And now a preview of a new issue of ME: Foundation #12 has appeared... and inside... First official appearance of a Drell Female.
This time they showed Thane's wife that is known to the players through Thane's tales about his past.
So for the time being I'll upload the screens from the preview:
What do you think?
Abrudas was shown several months before Omeda DLC and the official design for Turian females didn't stray far from the comic version.
Maybe that means ME4 will have Drell Females. Who knows. If so, they probably will be similar to Irikah.

Why some people get banned (explanation)Today there were a few bannings that happened of some somewhat well known deviants and a big known group. A lot of people who followed the group/deviants are wondering why they got banned etc. Just as an educational bit I want to show people the dA etiquette Policy that you were supposed to have agreed to when you joined the site (yet surprisingly so many people don't read it.) It can be found here:Why some people get banned (explanation)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll go by selected sections that pertain to the behavior that's been going on and add some notes of my own:
All members of the deviantART community are expected to be familiar with these rules of etiquette and they will be enforced evenly and without bias in every situation which is brought to the attention of the administration regardless of the membership status of the user in question.
You are EXPECTED to be familiar with these rules of etiquette, wow guys I wonder how many of us are?

Adding Journals to your Featured GalleryCommunity WeekAdding Journals to your Featured Gallery7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Your featured gallery is the first page that your gallery visitors will see. Most of the time, we tend to display our very best pieces of work there. However, the featured gallery can also be used to showcase some journal entries that you want viewers to see immediately. These may be important announcements, advertisements, etc. It would be great to know this neat little trick of how to make journals show on your featured gallery.
To make sure that we're on the same page (excuse the pun!), this is what the Featured Gallery looks like:
Let's get started!
Step 1: Locate Your Journal
To locate your journal, type the title of the journal on the search bar and click on "Search Art." In this example, I will look for one of my projecteducate entries. Be reminded that you don't have to type the full title, some keywords would do.

Everyone, all my friends- new or old, just thank you!
You guys have already made this one of my biggest giveaways ever, on any account, period.And we're only 2 days in. Thank you so much for everything. I'm so happy you guys joined! If you're new here, I just want to tell you that this isn't going to be it, not at all. With so much support i'm DEFINITELY going to be doing more giveaways in the future, kiribans too. Around here I try to make sure there's always something going on, either points, features or art stuff. So stick around and see what'll happen!
In fact, all this support has given me the courage to draw again. It's been a pretty busy summer, and I haven't been able to just sit down and draw like I wanted to at first. I also gotta admit I was procrastinating bigtime, just watching a bunch of tv and movies. There's one thing about that- you always want to take "a day off", but that day never seems to just be a day, does it? It turns into 2 days, a w
Time to get stuff off my chestAlright, so this is gonna just be kind of how I feel about recent events. I had to take a break from my hiatus just to do the live stream where I had to talk about how much I was hurt by Amu.Time to get stuff off my chest1 month ago in Personal More Like This
To :iconamu-amateur: , I'm mad at you, yes. And some of the things I said in the live stream, I'm getting to where I regret it. You were a great friend, and a kind person I had thought. You hurt me and my friends, and I don't know how I can forgive you. I don't know if your expecting forgiveness, or whatever. Just know I'm more hurt than mad, I guess. I'm sad that all of this happened, and I'm sorry if I caused you any grief during our friendship. I wanted to help protect you from being hurt, because that's how I am about my friends. So if I caused you grief during our friendship, I apologize. But just know if you're truly planning on hurting yourself, you can still talk to me. Because if someone, even an ex-friend, comes to me needing help I'll still do my best to help you. You can still talk to
Voices Against Discrimination #4 Autismdis·crim·i·na·tion: the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of peopleVoices Against Discrimination #4 Autism2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I believe a good question would be why do we discriminate?
A simple answer is because we're taught to fear what strays out of social norms, reject the difference, and try to be as normal as possible in order to be accepted in society.
That's a lame answer isn't it? Sadly, most of it is very, very true.
However, here's one thing that we should realize, times changed, we're a new, rising generation, unlike our fathers and mothers. Difference is everywhere.
Voices against Discrimination is a blog series aiming to shed light on different part of our society. A window into things and people we usually fear, in hopes that we can make a difference.
By all means, these blogs are not meant to offend or disrespect anyone. These blogs have a single aim: to spread awareness.
I believe in EqualityI try to treat everyone equally. If your kind of a douche, I'll be a douche right back. If you hurt my friends, I'll go full ruthless asshole on you.I believe in Equality3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Other than that, I treat everyone the same. Even with the people or OC's I rant on.
If your bipolar, I don't care.
Dyslexic, I don't care.
Autistic, Social anxiety, mental disorder, physical disorder, whatever.
Your a person no matter what, so I'll treat you equally.
If thats offensive, then pardon me. But I won't pity anyone for a disorder or disease. I'll worry for you and hope things go well, but I won't pity for that.
If this offended anyone, sorry, but thats just how I feel.

Citadel 2183-1 The memoirs of Garrus Vakarian
Citadel Tower 2183-1. Palin was always an idiot (and a criminal, though I didn't know it at the time.) It was another useless conversation with my boss, another horrid day when my work got stalled by red tape, stupidity and a general lack of insight by my superiors. A small group of humans approached and Palin stalked off. I saw them in my peripheral vision. Three: a male and two females. I turned, I recognized the one in front, because everybody knows that face from the vids, the savior of Elysium: Commander Jane Shepard, XO of the Normandy. She's a larger than life figure and I expected that she would be larger than life… taller, heavier, more… like a male. She's average height, svelte and much more beautiful than her holo-pictures. Our eyes locked, for just an instant.
The only thing I could think was... inappropriate for the occasion. I'd never been attracted to

I'm pretty sure everyone's seen the latest announce from dA! This is AWESOME for someone like me who loves comics! I can't wait to get started and will DEFINITELY be using it. But for people who say the 40% cut is too much, most other e-publishing services cost like 50-65%.. (amazon, comixology, itunes etc)
I think it's fair: We didn't pay for the tool or the server space to host this stuff. They need to make their money somehow.
Besides, EVERYBODY knows the real money in webcomics is the MERCHANDISE. You can almost NEVER make a living off the actual print sales of the book. In the hardback publishing world, you're lucky if you see a dollar per book.
So yeah! This is really amazing!

It's made for beginners, so it's just really basic stuff. I hope it's helpful!
1. Get a tablet
Of course there are artists who create beautiful pictures with a mouse, but trust me, drawing with a graphics tablet is more natural and a lot easier once you're used to it.
Tablets have one big advantage over mouses: Pen pressure. Depending on how hard you press the line gets thicker and darker or thinner and lighter, similar to a real pen on real paper. I'd recommend getting a small, cheap Wacom tablet to start out.
Also make sure your tablet always has the newest drivers installed! You can download them on the Wacom website.
