The Arch demon doesn't stand a chance.

Ashley and Jacob aren't included because I'm not a fan of either character (basically to the point where including them would cause me to no longer enjoy the piece or process), sorry to anyone who's upset by this.

When I started this project I had it in mind to try and get it on kotaku.com and they were nice enough to feature it which is always cool.

Normandy: looked at her again after not seeing it for a week (thanks assassins creed 3) and when I came back to it I thought she looked really stupid so I found some more screenshots of DA2 dragons and re-did her design to better match them. This is much more what I originally had in mind when I thought of the Normandy as a dragon, with the blue flame/energy representative of the thannix technology. Also she’s sort of a hybrid of the alliance and cerberus colors

Joker: If Joker ever tried to ride a dragon he would probably snap in half with every twist and turn so I chose to overlook his bone condition. Originally I was thinking of having him in some non combat role but since everyone else is suited for it I wanted him to be able to participate in some way, plus he and the Normandy are kind of inseparable. So probably not my best thought out role but I’m ok with it.

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.

I picture Zaeed as the leader of a gang of roadside bandits and Kasumi as a master theif who sometimes does the occasional odd job for him since they are old friends. They met years prior when Kasumi was a young upstart thief that tried to steal Zaeed’s jewel encrusted broadsword but Zaeed caught her in the act and managed to briefly subdue her, impressed with the young girls spirit he offered her a place in his gang and she stayed with him for awhile before going out on her own to pursue bigger and better heists.

Kasumi- pretty much just took her mass effect outfit and gave it a medieval makeover, she wields dual curved daggers in battle.

Zaeed- also didn’t change much aside from removing the sci-fi elements, and removed his artificial eye (at least I think it’s artificial in ME). He lost it when he he killed the former gang leader in a duel.

Only two more characters left to go, one will be Joker as I’ve already said and he’ll be paired with a surprise partner to conclude the dragon effect series.

thank you bioware for including numerous, varied, developed, and interesting female characters. I haven’t encountered a fandom with so many f/f pairing options (and I pair all these ladies with fshep to some extent). now just give me a sassy turian lady and more romance options

dunno why I took the time to color this but I did

Normando the high dragon , my first attempt, didn't use much reference which resulted in a lot of anatomy issues, leading to this version being pretty much scrapped.

happy N7 day everyone (November 7th) to celebrate here's the surprise character in the Dragon Effect series, she's not completely finished yet but wanted to share something for this special day. Joker the dragon rider/pilot will be along shortly along with the final cleaned up group shot of the whole crew.

I can't wait for the game, if you haven't seen the trailer, GO WATCH IT. it's epic.

This piece took me a bit longer to do, schedule is getting super busy, so i had less time to work on my own stuff now. no complains though, it's good to have lots of work. and i've been planning to push myself out of the comfort zone, still doing lots of analysis based on pro paintings.


ps:(I hoped the school would provide longer poses for life drawing, or at least costumed models. neither are sufficient right now. and it's impossible for go that much beyound with anatomy when everything is 5 mins or under, correct me if i'm wrong but we are supposed to know the muscle construction of the whole figure to better simplify for a gesture. doing the same things over and over will get you hitting a wall pretty damn fast.)

Personal art of Mass Effect featuring Miranda Lawson

The reason wihich led me to do more Mass Effect work was simple - I wanted to make one of the best fan art (which would also work as promo or poster art) to be had. Inspiration came from an outstanding Sunshine OST created by John Murphy, and Underworld, which I recommend listening to in order to feel the right vibe/atmoshphere.
[link]

No photo tracing, overpainting or 3d models were used here. However, I used some references (that also includes ME2 screenshots), and textures. I don't even know the exact earth hours spend on this piece, but I can assure it was alot - I really wanted to do the justice to the character. The original size is A4 with 300dpi. This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.

So.. i had a terrible ending in mass Effect 3( as if there was a happy ending) and i decided to make my own with blackjack and hookers.
Yes it's cliche and seems boring for some people, but i made this just for fun and not to offend someone who likes the ending.

AH I'm sorry if you ended up at this page because I said it wouldn't redirect and the image did anyway... Tumblr made a giant liar of me... !!!!

Art based on and created for "Destroyed" by That'sNotMe as a part of the 2012 Mass Effect Big Bang.
Link: mebigbang.livejournal.com/1974…

Thanks so much to Casey for producing such a bittersweet yet beautiful work of fiction!! Unfortunately I didn't get to finish my project and missed the opportunity to illustrate some other moments from the fic, but hopefully when I get more time I can post them here. :)

Work is done mostly with Photoshop CS5, with some use of custom PS brushes courtesy of Basstar and Z-designs. Reference material found in Mass Effect screencaps (not my own screencaps, I am sorry I did not properly keep a list of sources) and character sheets uploaded to DA by Troodon80 .

Personal art of Mass Effect.
The fourth picture featuring Thane Krios


The whole image is deprived of rich colors, and is kept in a blue tint. I also included some glow and volumentric light. All this was made to emphasize Thane's personality as an assassin.

You can sense some jagged/uneven edges and little "ghosting" elements. This was done deliberately in order to give the artwork the sense of motion. An effect as if the viewer snapped a frame or paused the video and caught Thane in a position in which he is about to use his powers (just imagine him raising hand with biotics powering up).

No photo tracing, overpainting or 3d models were used here. However I used some ME screenshots and hand pic for reference. I also played around with some textures to give the Thane's cloths more realistic look. The original size is A4 with 300dpi. This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.

Personal art of Mass Effect.
The third picture featuring Garrus

I slighty played around with the design and changed shoulder gauntlet. Also the whole armor and sniper rifle were given more worn out (and believable) look. I enjoyed painting his armor and gun ... every single scratch of them. :) Originally the piece was supposed to be more action oriented but the concept changed and ultimately Garrus is presented in a marksman position.

No photo tracing, overpainting or 3d models were used here. Only ME2 screenshots were used as references for Garrus' gun, head etc.).

Recently touched this one up as well.

This Mass Effect theme kept me going throughout the process of painting this piece. Definitely recommend it for fans of the soundtrack.
[link]

It's funny, a lot of people hate Kaidan as a character but I was always drawn to him for being a little more normal and down to earth than a lot of the other crew, plus he was the first biotic I met (other than my Shepard) and I thought he was really cool just for that. In ME1 since he wasn't a romance option for MShep I just thought of him as being Shepard's best bud and always kept him in my squad, I think Raphael Sbarge is an incredibly talented voice actor too and gives his dialogue a lot more depth.

Then during the horizon confrontation in ME2 I really felt like there was some sort of deeper emotional connection between these two characters that I hadn't noticed before so I was overjoyed that Bioware allowed him to become an option for male Shepard in ME3, since it just sort of made sense to me that the relationship between them had evolved over the course of the series.

So after five years spent waiting for a conclusion to their story and ME3 doing such an incredible job with their developing romance arc I was pretty devastated to see Shepard die (or seemingly die) and have no sense of closure on these characters I'd been so invested in, hence why I chose to paint this piece, giving myself the chance to see them re-unting or at least sharing one final embrace. I'm not too happy with it from a technical standpoint but it is definitely the most emotion I have ever tried to instill in a painting and means more to me than any of my other work.

If you shoot the catalyst from a certain angle Shepard can unlock a Jaeger and save the galaxy in style with his/her love interest.

I don’t know why it took me so long to discover that…

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.

Ok so I'm officially turning into that weird guy who draws too much Kaidan/Shep so I'll be taking a break from them for awhile, besides I really want to finish the dragon effect series asap so gotta focus on that. Still though I played Leviathan and had a little story going in my head of what happened the night after completing the mission (similar to how Liara visited Shepard's cabin after lair of the shadow broker).

Post Leviathan, Shepard’s cabin

Kaidan and Shepard climbed into bed, both exhausted from the days trials. They hadn’t said much to one another since returning from the mission, having been incredibly busy all afternoon informing the galaxy that they’d actually discovered and enlisted the aid of the very beings responsible for creating reapers. A new development in the war that finally offered some hope of possible victory and the first bit of good news to come their way in weeks.

Shepard pulled the covers up and turned to Kaidan, noticing a look of concern on the major’s face.

“Uh oh, I’m in trouble aren’t I?” Shepard said, following with a sly smirk as he met Kaidan’s focused gaze.

“That was reckless Shepard, you really had me worried there. Watching you climb into that Mech and slip beneath the waves, not knowing if you’d come back up…I meant it when I said never do that again.”

“Heh, told you I’d be fine Kaidan. Besides remember Virmire when you wanted to blow yourself up with that nuke? Oh and let’s not forget Mars when I came so close to losing you that I nearly had a heart attack.”

Shepard smiled, pulling Kaidan closer. Determined to keep the mood lighthearted and besides teasing Kaidan was just too much fun.

“Ok point taken, but Shepard you seem to have forgotten that I actually DID lose you already and I’m not letting it happen again.” letting out a sigh Kaidan looked at Shepard with pleading eyes, “So please, in the future try and avoid running headfirst into life-threatening situations by yourself.”

Kaidan’s expression turned from serious to relaxed. “At least if I’m with you I can save your ass if things get choppy.”

Shepard laughed,

“I’m sorry, didn’t mean to make you worry, promise I’ll make it up to you.”

“Oh really?” Kaidan asked, forming a seductive grin. “Well you can start right now.”

Taking his cue Shepard leaned in and kissed Kaidan slow and passionately, a tender moment that reminded each of them just how lucky they were to have one another. Tired as they were this was one night that neither of them would be taking for granted.

My version: fast moving melee opponents with low life to compensate for their speed and vicious slicing abilities.
Still the drell and quarians to go. Might skip the Vorcha, they already look freaky enough.

So I changed the top of the design to look slightly more religious, in ME3 the Kasumi mission had the Hanar diplomat siding with the reapers due to it's belief that the enkindlers (protheans) would have wanted it. Or maybe it was just indoctrinated, I'm not toally sure but I was trying to show that the reapers would convert the Hanar through religious fanaticism.

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.

'Right now I have this' - one of the best memorable moments in ME3.
Or maybe better say one of the last epic moments in the whole series that are eventually equally epically ignored and haven't got deserved/expected logical/emotional continuation. Though I don't think BW have done a bad job on Tali's face. In-game photo (just photo and photomanipulation on it) was poor but model-girl's face actually fit for Tali well.
Unfortunately I was shaken in my fan-confidence but still 'right now I have this'.

The history of race is very sad. When you Quarian were the most advanced race in our galaxy, they created the geth - synthetics, which are gradually more and more improved. At some point Gets in recognized himself as a person and refused to shut down. Quarian afraid of this and started to kill the geth, but synthetics rebelled. Many Quarian loved his creation, but they were in the minority, and rapidly lost. Began a protracted war, synthetics and gradually won at some point nearly destroyed the creators, but let them go. They had little experience at that time and did not want to decide the fate of an entire people, a very noble trait for robots - the creators would have to be proud of. But they lied Toli Toli themselves were afraid, they refused to believe in the truth, which led later to the sad events. But that's another story ...

First Enchanter Liara and Knight Commander Samara - Dragon Effect

I liked the dynamic between Orsino and Meredith in Dragon Age 2 with the two characters trying to fulfill they’re respective roles yet always digging at one another (esp on Meredith’s part) so I thought it would be fun to place Liara and Samara in their positions, plus asari catfights are always fun.

Samara- Since she’s so adherent to her justicar code in Mass Effect I thought seeing her as a knight commander sworn to uphold the templar code was fitting. Morinth could also come into play as the apostate daughter that Samara would spend her time hunting (when she’s not busy with official duties).

Liara- As first enchanter Liara would do her best to quell the fear and stigma associated with mages and would aid Shepard by doing what she could to cover up the fact that he’s harboring three apostates in his crew (Kaidan/Jack/Miranda) from Samara. Maybe by inventing fake phylacteries or something else more clever/plausible.

Not sure who will be next, maybe EDI/Legion or Javik/James
