Welcome to My Life is now online. This is a short I art directed in 2015, created by Elizabeth Ito. We used 3d animation combined with photo bg’s. The animation was done by TeamTo in Paris. We took photos on location and then edited them, added elements or moved stuff around to make them work as backgrounds for the animation. Above is some of the art I made for it.

It was a great project to work on and I’m really proud of how it all turned out.

Here I am on the photo shoot with (on left) Riley Riggen - production coordinator, Elizabeth Ito - creator, writer, director and Rob Getzschman - photographer, editor.

Allocations (fReyder)

@ladyinthebluebox


Tann was droning on.

And on.

And on.

Sara was grateful she wasn’t the only audience member, else the effort of paying attention might have whittled her down to bones. Kesh and Kandros were there too, and Addison had sent a representative whose name Sara didn’t quite catch. Various lower tier officials had crowded in as well, squeezing in around Tann’s desk like remora clinging to a shark.

Tann likely thought himself the shark, but most of his teeth were purely imaginary. Sara had no fear of retribution as she dozed at the back of the gathering, picking at her sleeve and fiddling with her omni-tool - but she wasn’t quite so politically secure as to leave the room entirely. The director was reciting his resource allocation rationale; something that would have been a controversial discussion several months ago, but had become almost humdrum with Meridian’s resource wealth at their disposal.

Sara’s omni-tool buzzed. It was set to silent, but one of the administrators heard the vibration. She sent Sara a withering look over her shoulder - and Sara quickly shut down her notifications.

Has the boredom killed you yet?

Sara didn’t bother trying to hide her smile. The administrator rolled her eyes, but she turned back to give Tann’s monologue her full attention. Sara wondered how long it would take for the director to wear down her ambition.

To: Reyes Vidal

From: Sara Ryder

 

Not yet, but I’m pretty sure I can feel my life expectancy dropping. Quickly. Say something interesting.

To: Sara Ryder

From: Reyes Vidal

 

I’m always interesting, Sara. But it’s past midnight in Kadara Port. I think I’m entitled to some rest.

To: Reyes Vidal

From: Sara Ryder

 

Reyes Vidal, admitting to fatigue? Are you feeling all right? Should I have Keema send a medic?

To: Sara Ryder

From: Reyes Vidal

 

May God have mercy. I fell in love with a comedian.

Sara’s cheeks felt suddenly warm. Her smile was threatening to split her cheeks. He’d said I love you before, of course; breathlessly; passionately; adoringly - but it was the casual affirmations that made Sara’s heart ache the most sweetly.

Kandros was taking issue with one of Tann’s allocations. It sounded like the difference was about to turn into an outright argument, but Sara had no desire to step in.

To: Reyes Vidal

From: Sara Ryder

 

Might be a fight brewing here. Maybe I don’t need you to keep me awake.

To: Sara Ryder

From: Reyes Vidal

 

Should I leave you alone, then? I have plenty to occupy my attentions here.

To: Reyes Vidal

From: Sara Ryder

 

Like what?

To: Sara Ryder

From: Reyes Vidal

 

Whiskey. Music. That picture you sent me last week.

Sara’s cheeks were definitely burning - but Tann was close to shouting now, and nobody had any attention to spare the blushing Pathfinder.

To: Reyes Vidal

From: Sara Ryder

 

Now you’re just teasing me.

To: Sara Ryder

From: Reyes Vidal

 

Does that mean you want me to stop? Messaging you, that is.

To: Reyes Vidal

From: Sara Ryder

 

Teasing. Again.

To: Sara Ryder

From: Reyes Vidal

 

You caught me, Sara. Has anyone noticed that you’re blushing yet?

To: Reyes Vidal

From: Sara Ryder

 

Don’t make me come over there, Mr. Vidal. I’ll wipe that smirk off your pretty face.

To: Sara Ryder

From: Reyes Vidal

 

Now you’re teasing me, Sara. Don’t make promises you’re not going to keep.

Sara glanced up again. The leadership was still arguing. Addison’s stand-in was up in Kandros’ face, wagging her finger at almost seven feet of angry turian. Tann was trying to talk over both of them at once, waving his three-fingered hands in the air like he thought he could stop a landslide with signal flags. The underlings were whispering nervously. Hesitant half-steps saw them gathering in clusters behind their respective division heads, tapping at datapads while they checked and double-checked their figures.

But Kesh made eye contact with Sara. She disengaged from the fray with a grimace, as deadpan and disparaging as the straight man sighing at the fool. She rolled her eyes at Sara - then mouthed a silent command. Sara couldn’t read Krogan lips - she didn’t really think that they had any - but SAM was a miracle given circuits.

“She is suggesting that you leave, Pathfinder.”

Sara glanced around. Apart from Kesh, no one was watching her. Hell - they looked like they’d forgotten she existed.

She keyed up one last message as she hustled back to the Tempest.

Save me some of that whiskey, baby. I’m on my way over.

#13 for Gale x Vetra? :o

a kiss we had to wait for

And it’s dawned on me that I don’t think I’ve posted any pictures of Gale. Here she is! (Endgame spoilers below!)

“Want to ditch these losers?” Vetra asks, her mandibles stretching out in a grin. 

“Read my mind,” Ryder says, wagging her eyebrows as she and Vetra start to walk from the group that formed. Thanks to a live broadcast, she suddenly realizes that if anyone involved in the Initiative was curious about her relationship status, those questions are now pretty much answered.

All she wants is to get back to the Tempest and crawl into bed. Maybe she and Vetra can share a kiss or two before passing out and sleeping for a million years. Her head is pounding.

“Gale.”

“Hold that thought,” Ryder says, her stomach churning at the sound of Scott’s voice. They’ll have a wait a minute for their victory kiss. Vetra will understand.

She walks up to the medical stretcher he’s getting strapped into. “How’s the hero of the hour feeling?” she asks.

Just finished Nexus Uprising before work and it was 👌👌👌

I was tagged by a couple of wonderful people for this meme. Thank you! 

What is your favorite scene in MEA? Drack’s scene in the medbay. That scene affected me a lot. And it cemented Drack as one of my all time favorite ME characters.

What is your favorite quest? I really loved the final quest, especially once they drop the Mako on Ilos the Nomad on Meridian. Seeing some consequences to my choices, even just cosmetic ones, was fantastic.

What is your favorite weapon? Carnifax 4 lyfe.

What is your favorite armor? I really didn’t explore armor that much. It’s a tie between the armor you start the game with and the armor that has an antena on the back.

What is your favorite power ability? INCINERATE! I, um, really like setting things on fire.

What is your favorite planet? Aya! It’s beautiful and I hope one day we can explore the volcano part of the planet, too.

What is your favorite addition to MEA that wasn’t in the original trilogy? Jump jets! I love them. They really are so much fun.  

Who is your favorite non-romanced (one you didn’t romance but could be) character? (can be NPC or squadmate) I refuse to pick just one. Drack, Kesh, and Vorn. They are all so wonderful. I love how Andromeda gave the krogan so much more depth. It gives me a little hope that once we get more races, volus will be more than merchants and hanar will be more than religious fanatics. Fingers crossed.

Favorite squad/party combo? Jaal and Drack if Ryder is a biotic. Cora and Vetra if Ryder is an engineer.

Favorite non-bipedal animal on Andromeda? Honestly, those all sort of difted together for me. I didn’t pay much attention.

What surprised you most when you first played MEA? That asari all have the same face. That turian females all have the same face. That turian males all have the same face. That salarians all have the same face. This was not a good surprise.

What is your favorite quote? I’ve got two and they’re both from Drack. The first is about parents being the starting line. The second is during his loyalty mission when he’s like ‘so a lot of things are getting destroyed today and all of them are yours!’
