Wow the extended cut was just announced hours ago and I'm super excited, posting this piece to mark the occasion.

Link to the Tuchunka music that inspired me to do this piece: [link] thanks to the user who found it for me. That music plays on the curing genophage mission when Shepard emerges from the tunnels to see green on Tuchunka for the first time. It was a powerful moment from the last game that stayed with me.

So in this alternate future, some time after the ending to ME3, the Krogan are gifted cloned Kakliosaurs by the salarians as a gesture of goodwill and a parade is held on Tuchunka to celebrate the curing of the genophage and a move towards more peaceful relations between the salarians/turians and Krogan.
Wrex is holding his kid named after Mordin while the salarian scientist who cloned the kakliosaurs walks alongside. Grunt leads to the left with some members of Aralakh company and Eve is of course in the center because females are now running the show and keeping peace.

For anyone who doesn't remember what kakliosaurs are they were an animal species on Tuchunka that went extinct and there is a side quest on the citadel to give a kakliosaur skull to a salarian scientist for possible cloning/research purposes. There are also paintings of Krogan riding them in the underground tunnels, which is what I referenced when drawing them.

Didnít mean to take so long to finish them. Will be much quicker with the next pair. Wrex and Grunt most likely since I need to get some aliens in there.

For Miranda I basically took Morriganís look and tweaked it a bit, used her hexagon pattern from mass effect and incorporated it into the new look and added cerberus insignia. I'm imagining cerberus as a kind of rogue apostate organization that Miranda would be involved with.

And Jackís just a crazy ass elven blood mage. Wasnít really referencing any particular character for her so kinda just made her mass effect outfit more mage-like. Also I didnít distort her face like the elves in Dragon Age 2 because I preferred the way they looked in dragon age origins ( I thought Zevran looked terrible with the wide eyes in DA2).

Wrex and Grunt Dragon Effect Mercs

Imagining the Krogan as sort of a subsidiary race to the Qunari. Lesser in number and therefore mostly serving as hired mercs instead of having an actual system of government.

Grunt- referenced Sebastian Vaelís armor a bit for Gruntís look, wanted him to come across as more of a good natured young Krogan who is trying to distance himself from the violent nature of his race. Maybe Shepard would run into him while heís out on a soul searching pilgrimage or something.

Wrex- By contrast I wanted Wrex to look like heís totally embracing his badass nature and Iím imaging him as leader of a wondering band of pillaging Krogan mercs before deciding to aid Shepard. (maybe a renegade Shep gets Wrex while a paragon gets Grunt).

and yes I realized I sort of switched their personalities from ME but it just sort of felt right to me for some reason.

Next up will either be Garrus and Thane or Tali and Liara, havenít decided yet.

Trying to do an actual scene for once instead of just a concept. Switched the orientation of the image since most people view images from left to right.

My version of a volus reaper enemy, since the idea of a menacing volus is sort of a joke I just turned them into little suicide bombers that can only run close to you and blow up so you have to kill them from a distance.
People kept saying Volus would explode if exposed outside their suits so I changed the feet into mech legs to solve this.

My version of a salarian reaper enemy, not sure how he attacks but since he has no weapon maybe he just runs at you like a human husk, only faster.

My favorite Mass Effect character, Mr. Kaidan Alenko. Searching for Shepard of course and using biotics to light the way.

This was a nice break from doing the reaper designs, though I'm headed right back into those with more hybrids! Elcor and Volus mash up coming next.

My version of an elcor reaper enemy. The game says normal elcor strap VI controlled guns onto their backs for combat purposes so this is just exploring that concept further.

Garrus and Thane, Dragon Effect didnít ref any particular DA characters for these two.

The storyline Iím thinking for Garrus is that turians are a regularly integrated part of society and as with Mass Effect where they make up the bulk of C-sec they often fulfill the role of town guards and in Garrusí case heís risen to become a captain of a wealthy trading town, hence his somewhat ostentatious get-up. Heíd be a melee/ranged fighter.

For Thane Iíd see him as belonging to a small almost forgotten order with the purpose of finding and eliminating wild dragons or wyrms. Thatís why heís wearing a light dragon scale outfit and the glowing stone set into his chestpiece is a gem that embues him with added marksmanship powers.

Next up was going to be Tali/Liara but I really want to do Mordin so I think Iím gonna give him a shot, not sure who will be paired with him yet, might just have it be Tali anyway since Iím sure sheíd be a popular choice . Iíll pair Liara with Javik when I get around to it.

I was inspired by the spitter in left4dead, which I used to play a shit ton of before ME3 multiplayer.
