Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

I make no disclaimer whatsoever that this is the end-all, be-all of a character template. This is what works for me, and Im well aware that my writing process is mine and mine alone. But Ill post the template and my reasoning on it in the hopes that folks can discern something helpful from it. One of the worst things to do to yourself is tell yourself theres a right way and trap yourself in that box. Dont ever resist what feel unnatural in the writing process. Just learn to direct its course, like a river. Also, please keep in mind that I do a lot of prewriting, and this template gets filled out for every major character in the story. My major

World-building, for me, is one of the biggest things about fantasy. It has, in many cases, saved a book from sucking. Conversely, poor world-building can drag a brilliant plot and excellent characterization down. What is world-building? It is consistency of logic and the new rules that you introduce as part of the story. Easy to say, hard to do. World-building, in good fantasy, more often than not, provides some kind of critical plot point. (If it doesn't, that's okay, but really good fantasy usually takes an established rule and gives it story stakes.)
Examples? Phillip Pullman establishes the rule of daemons in his His Dark Materials trilog
Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect seriesThis is something I felt compelled to write;Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect series2 years ago in Personal More Like This
both as a gamer and the influences that helped shape me as a developer.
Almost a year from when I touched my last save file, I finally "finished" the Mass Effect series. I played all the DLC and I beat the game, one last time. It was a somber ending, because it put a final end to a character I have played since 2007. I have games that I love, games stretching back to my childhood, and games that I would consider myself to be a huge fan of. I can count on one hand though (and not using all my fingers), franchises that have sucked me in and crafted characters that made me care about them in such a way, that turns this 6'5 developer into your everyday excitable fan (not Justin Beiber level though, that'd be just plain crazy). The Mass Effect series is one of those few titles.
I have looked up to Bioware for many years. Combined with my love for Point & Click advent
Je ne suis PAS charlie.I'm going to make a statement here that will probably NOT sit well with my other fellow artists, but I simply CANNOT pretend I'm not pissed.Je ne suis PAS charlie.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
(Reminder: I am French, and I apologize in advance for any grammatical mistakes and awkward phrasings.)
In the aftermath of the attack in Paris that claimed the lives of several people, including several cartoon artists, the world is basically flooding with support messages for the victims and their families, and people everywhere are now plastering "Je suis Charlie" (I am Charlie) messages everywhere.
And now, politicians too are joining the dance.
Let me ask you something: have you actually seen the drawings those people made? Read that newspaper?
More often that not, they are racist, sexist and homophobic.
Now, I understand that those were made as satires, as a way to shock and appall in order to get the message across. Since very often they used it to denounce racism, politi

It follows Shepard, Liara and their Blue Babies as they travel around the galaxy and relax on earth.
2 months after the events of Tuchanka. Shepard's Mansion, Earth.
" I now you don't like staying here on Earth where everyone gawks at you and slams their iPhone 197's in your face asking for a picture that they will sell on the extranet, so how about we set sail on the Normandy for a few months?" asked Liara. "Really, what about little Benezia?" asked the retired Commander. "She could come with us and we could show here Illium and Thessia." said Liara. "I'm sure Garrus and Tali would like us to visit them and Joker and EDI too. Although I'm pretty sure Ashley and the Alliance wouldn't let us just take the Normandy." stated Shepard. "Yeah you're right, you could ask Hackett." said Liara. "You're full of good ideas today Doctor." Shepard then walked up, kissed Liara on the forehead before go

Some personal story.
I want to address this topic from my point of view. I know it’s very popular topic among artists and I want to address it from my perspective. I’ve been to university also so I can talk from perspective of being a student and self taught artist.
Having a good teacher is a very important factor while going to university. What good teacher means to me? Not only is it a person with incredible skills and knowledge. I can argue these features does not make a regular person good teacher. He/she must know how to teach and actually CARE about You,( about his/her students). Good teacher is a person who want to pass the skills and knowledge to young students, not because he is a teacher but because it is a person who cares. I put such an emphasis on word ‘care’ because… you could probably guess by now… I didn’t have teachers who cared! So what is the point to going to uni

Okay. So I started this as an email to a fellow publisher in arms who is looking to jump into the graphic novel market, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized a lot of you out there might benefit from this information. So for anyone looking to publish stories told in sequential art, I offer the following insight...
So you want to publish a graphic novel? First the good news. There's never been a better time to do it. Printing has never been cheaper, interest in graphic novels is at an all time high, and thanks to online stores like Amazon.com publishers are no longer shackled to the narrow minded ordering habits of comic shop owners. Now the bad news, the comic industry is dead. No, let me rephrase that. The comic industry *should* be dead. Rather, it has become the monster that refuses to die. It's a rotted, bloated corpse, that's been shot thirty time, set on fire, and then shoved off a 12-story building, yet the damn thing gets

So I noticed that whenever I found a "cool" tutorial, they always came from a website called "deviantART" :iconloveloveplz: ...
