So important question, is Anders the only Bioware character to quote the Simpsons in every game he appears or are there others?
If my computer holds up there might be some new stuff too but we’ll see. D:
I will have the original inks/markers of Cassandra, Flemeth, Morrigan, Zevran and Isabela for sale too! (Anders and Fenris went at Sakuracon ‘12, sorry!)
Turns out the Able Sisters can’t kick you out if you don’t leave after closing time. >:3 DESIGN ALL THE ROBES ALL NIGHT LONG.
Well that sure was two and a half hours of pixellated masochism.
(Again I’ll put up QR codes when I finally get Sable to show me some goddamned respect.)
Gonna make the black version too but oh god not now. T_T
Found the bottom of that rabbit hole: the Black Velvet Painting settings
varric I have wronged you
why are the lines emphasizing his chest hair why is that happening adobe
ETA: On the other hand Anders is glowing blue and getting pulled apart in the middle there isn’t he goddammit this stupid filter is even better at visual metaphors than me DX
You might recognize some of the frescoes that decorate the start of each chapter from the load screens and exposition sequences in Dragon Age II. The frescoes are cool because they’re an example of in-world artwork that help to make the cultures of Thedas feel vital and alive. They were also something nice to look at while the game loads. This one of Anders never actually showed up in-game, but we used it for the chapter about magic.

Concept artist Nick Thornborrow talks a little bit about the art of Dragon Age for the upcoming The World of Thedas book.
I want prints of all the loading screens, but this one especially aaaaah!
Such that it used to be common for military organizations to sludge through sewers and outhouses and anywhere else large quantities of excrement could be found in search of it?
Like soldiers (presumably low-ranking) could just show up at your door and be like “What’s up we’re going to splash around in your privy-hole awhile” and you’d be like “cool” because you didn’t want to do it yourself and sometimes they’d clean it for you.
Annnyway, my thoughts during first playthrough Act 3 of DA2: …How the hell is gunpowder going to separate him from Justice? Is he just going to try to explode himself apart?
- Anders shows up in blackened recolor robes*, looking dejected -
…WAIT DID HE??!!
*There is also a firepit or something putting up wisps of smoke behind him during that scene, I seriously thought he was supposed to look singed LMAO.
