I should really be buying a Granado female body, or clothes for my SID Giorgio, but I can’t seem to tear myself away from Soom’s new elves. Apparently they improved the knee joints so I can’t even convince myself not to buy with their terrible posing.
Confession: I’m insanely jealous of PC gamers. I’m stuck on the 360, and can’t mod. Though I’d only mod Sten/Isabela/Merrill to match DA2, it’s painful.
I have both PC and console copies of both games, and while there are some really creative, impressive mods and they’re fun to experiment with, I have to say that in the end I prefer the game unmodded on my console. The only mod I truly miss is the DA2 one that lets female Hawke walk with the same animations as male Hawke.
I wish my mother would stop walking into my room every five minutes and talking about crafts when I’m trying to write a really awkward email to my temp agency because my manager noticed that I’m trans.
I’m out to both of my parents, but I really want to get this done in peace and privacy.
I finally finished page 19. No matter how much I love drawing backgrounds, parts of this were exhausting.
I finally had my appointment with Dr Seal today, and got my T prescription! My mum said she’d give me a lift into the town centre when I finish work tomorrow, otherwise I’d have to wait until the weekend to get hold of it. I’ve been prescribed the gel rather than injections because of some health matters I won’t go into, which is fine by me.
So the reason for the page being late is this monster of a panel. The page isn’t done quite yet, but it’s nearly there and might even make it up tonight. The page afterwards almost certainly won’t be up tomorrow because I have a medical appointment in London, but I’ll try not to skip the update altogether.
I also have a job again, at the same company as before. It’s a different branch though, and the work is somewhat less soul-destroying.
Coloured version finally uploaded. Preview image is of the reason the page took so long (part of it at least. The rest was the plants).
New page, mostly uncoloured. The completed version will be up tomorrow.
Mateo extreme face closeup! I have his limited outfit, but I can’t find anything else that fits and suits his character, and he usually sits around half-dressed. So here’s his face and nothing else.
Mateo is an Iple SID Giorgio in peach gold (default B faceup).
Confession: Even though I can appreciate all the characters being bi, I kinda wish there was something special about male romances and female romances. It feels less special if they say the same things. In Mass Effect, some are straight, some are gay, some are bi. To me, it brings more character. The DA2 romances just seemed very forced and not worth the effort. I mean whats the use if Fenris is going to say the same thing to you each time? It would be cool if romancables gave you something special.
What could they possibly do to differentiate them? I mean, besides relying on tired gender stereotypes. I’m bi and there’s really no difference for me between being attracted to a man or to a woman. If they’re going to change how the characters interact romantically with the protagonist, why not do it based on personality/dialogue choices instead of gender?
I hate it when people use ME romance as a comparison, because it has three games’ worth of love interests, and less content per character (not to mention varying levels of content depending on the character). If Dragon Age had over ten different love interests, I’m sure they could get away with making some of them gay or straight, but instead it has four per game (excluding Sebastian) and making them bi is the best way of giving everyone some choice.
