it seems that every time i’ve decided (after much deliberation) on buying something obscenely expensive, something happens and i end up finding discounts out of nowhere and i buy it at like half price, which gives me the best feeling of buyer’s not-remorse.
man i always land on all four feet. fortune, you are a benevolent mistress. i love you.
In at least Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign CS5 (maybe other programs/versions too), if you go to Window > Extensions > Kuler, you get a palette with preset color palettes that compliment each other, as well as a tool to help you make new ones. Then you can save it to the Kuler list, or to your Swatches palette.
i am just going to make a whole gifset of kaidan and his (mostly romance) expressions. bioware did a great job animating him. i don’t know what they did—whether it’s mocap or me2-style animation artists had to tweak frame-by-frame—but kaidan’s facial animations are almost as good as, if not better, than sheploo’s (
keep in mind that other malesheps don’t animate as well because the animation simply isn’t made for them). there are some expressions kaidan pulls that are just… enough to send me into hnnnnnng territory, i can’t help it. IT’S POSSIBLE THAT I’M READING TOO MUCH INTO IT YES AND AM LOOKING AT KAIDAN WITH THE PINKEST FANGIRL GOGGLES BUT BEAR WITH ME, OKAY?
most other LIs don’t/can’t do that—females in general are less expressive (and when they are they usually look really awkward because bioware fucked them up—ashley’s face is just uhh… kinda wrong and the others seem to wrinkle up a lot, like, liara ends up looking like she’s 800 years old) and most other male crewmembers are aliens (and you really can’t see garrus having a lot of expressions because a he’s a turian and b he’s a turian) and while james has his adorable-gorilla-baby thing going kaidan pulls puppyfaces like it’s the end of the world (ugly laughter) and it just breaks me, okay?
before, you know, my dashboard does its thing and shows it to me welp there goes my 70pounds fucking OW hole in my pantsies.
