Come to think of it, Peter Capaldi is the sort of actor who could probably pull off any distinctive powerful role you could possibly give him.
He really looks like my general headcanon for the Narrator too. Lean, powerful gaze, charming, looks good in a suit.
I see into your soul, Doctor.
I see beauty.
I see divinity.
I see… hatred.

Some harsh but very very true words
When people let me review their portfolios (on career day or open days at my game design school) I explicitly ban them from commenting during the review… …because otherwise they will follow the impulse to downplay everything I see in an attempt at being humble.
"this is an old image…"
"I’m not happy with that one…"
"this is just a sketch…"
"I did this really quickly…"
"there is better stuff on later pages…"
It’s totally understandable to have those impulses. The quality of art is not empirical data and therefore impossible to measure. Good art, bad art, it all comes down to standards. And you don’t want to come off as naive or self-absorbed.
But just don’t do it. Don’t talk yourself down in front of others. In the best case you have someone supportive who now thinks “damn, this person needs to be prepped up all the time. Do I really want to work with somebody like that” or in worst case “now that you say it, yeah, this is kinda lame/rushed/unfinished/lazy, go away.”
You can only submit what you have. If that is not enough, then it’s not enough. Your attitude will not change that. But if it is enough, you can do serious harm by not being confident of who you are now.
This means appreciating what you are able to do right now and have a clear vision of what you want to learn, be confident that you will learn it in time.
This is really important. Eliminate this urge. Eliminate it professionally, when having contact with people in a position to buy your work. Eliminate it socially, when you just share your work for fun. Destroy this urge as thoroughly as you possibly can.
Because when you have done that, you’ll find that you feel at least 25% less shitty about your own work. You lose the urge to do it. You stop reinforcing those negative thoughts, and they retreat. They may never go away completely (although they might!) but this is good practice for ignoring those thoughts flat-out.
Don’t shit-talk yourself. Even if you can’t be SO PROUD, don’t ever try to influence anyone’s opinion toward your work in the negative.
Try to love your work. Try to see what you learned from each piece, even if it’s a failure. If you feel that you learned nothing, appreciate the fact that just spending time on it is honing your skills and giving you valuable practice.
i used to be super not-confident in my own work. When I stopped pointing out the flaws in my own stuff, I felt better about it almost immediately.
The piece of advice I got that helped me the most with this is; the people looking at your work be it your director or an HR person, trust them to know and see the good work there that you’ve become desensitized to. We all have rushed shots and stuff, they can see the polished diamond inside of a rock, it’s literally their job! So don’t fret too much!
Ok so by now everybody pretty much knows GLaDOS lied about deleting Caroline, right?
The difference I want to know is, she couldn’t or she wouldn’t? Because that’s a pretty big difference
I wonder this too. She kept it pretty ambiguous about what deleting Caroline meant.
I think she did it to convince Chell to stay topside, to not try to come back under the notion that GLaDOS was any more human or caring or empathetic than she’d been before.
A clean break, if you will.
ok there’s a real paucity of explicit shodan/glados art and someone who can draw needs to ameliorate this stat
Commission someone - there’s a few people doing NSFW commissions for decent prices out there.
Or suck it up and draw some yourself. You don’t have to show anyone, just yourself.
People aren’t going to go draw your porn for you, not if you’re whinging like that.
Some skele backgrounds I did for fun (and because I wanted a new bg) :o
