Hey guys! I just started using SuperBetter after watching its TEDtalk. It’s a self-care/recovery game that can add years to your lifespan and increase your quality of life overall. I HIGHLY recommend it if you’re dealing with any kind of hardship in your life or feel like you’re missing something that could increase your happiness. I don’t know how many people are using it but if you’d like an Ally, let me know! :)

I was like: WHY ARE WE NOT FUNDING THIS. And then I realized pizza rolls.
hello 911 yes i just saw a man with sleeve tattoos wearing a button down with the sleeves rolled up and i need medical attention
This is the attitude that every creative artist needs to take.
When you’re wondering if you have the guts to post that new fanfic or to send your manuscript to a publisher, remember this.
this is my motto
I really need to adopt this attitude if I’m to be successful in anything I do.
To steal a music term, the hook of a song is that thing that, well, hooks you in and makes you wanna remember the song. So how does that pertain to design you ask? Well early on in the DA:I project I decided to treat the appeal of the characters I designed not through the eye of the beholder, compiling massive reference sheet of beautiful people and picking features I found appealing. Instead I decided to look through the lens of the narrative, and find their hook. I just found beauty too subjective, too mushy too, too, well lets just say I didn’t find it adequate. Luckily for me a lot of the talented people at Bioware believe in narrative so it wasn’t a hard sell to change the thinking and discussion away from “do I like what that looks like” to “does that visually say what we want”.
In the above example of Cassandra. Her hook is her power and authority. So then the trick was merely to use visual language to tell that story. I no longer had to justify what I thought was attractive. Her face became all about her aggression. Through the angle of her facial structure to the angle of her ears. It all became about giving her a strong aggressive forward visual flow.

Working beside this man for the last couple of years has been a highlight of my career. His insights, creativity and artistic integrity have been such an inspiration. He takes this approach to everything he does and his influence permeates Inquisition. Edit: and I should add, EVERY party member and many key NPC’s have received this treatment and I believe the results speak for themselves.
