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.

More wonderfully written dialogue from spicyshimmy: [link]

‘They might have Darkspawn, but we have krogan.’ - The Warden-Commander

‘Does this golem have a soul?’ - Legion

‘It is small and squishy, but it is not completely unpleasant to look at.’ - EDI, regarding Joker

‘My eyes are up here, ‘tis true—and those who look elsewhere during idle conversation find they do not live as long as those who do.’ - Miranda

‘The tiles in these Deep Roads remind me of an Orlesian floor…’ - Kaidan

‘You big, stupid archdemon.’ - The Warden-Commander

‘You only wish you could suck on these fireballs.’ - Jack, also known as ‘Apostate Zero’

‘Thresherhumper!’ - Wrex

‘Anybody else up for a little naked cliff-diving?’ - James

‘Embrace eternity… Just enter the Fade, which certainly feels like it.’ - Liara

‘Had to be. Somebody else might have cast the spell wrong.’ - Mordin

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 sheís 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 Iím 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 Zaeedís 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 didnít change much aside from removing the sci-fi elements, and removed his artificial eye (at least I think itís 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 Iíve already said and heíll be paired with a surprise partner to conclude the dragon effect series.

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 envision the Pyjaks being put to use mainly as reaper spy/scouting units, they'd be deployed on planets like earth where you have a large number of civilians hiding underground or in the countryside. The Pyjak unit would signal back to ground forces upon finding survivors and if confronted directly it has a little laser gun in it's mouth to offer some resistance.

Something to put my mind at ease while waiting for the game to be released. (lol)
It's truly been a while since I colored any art of mine and posted a finished product here in Deviant Art.

-- Update -- (March 24)
A heartful warm thanks to the people behind the Dragon Age's Fanpage in Facebook for featuring my artwork. Like as I said before, "I think my jaw just dropped in the deep roads somewhere."

I love that comment from Varric the moment Aveline showed shyness on courting a guardsman.

EDIT: Thank you all for your support, reading your comments nearly makes my eyes teary of joy! :hug:

While working on this, i mainly tried to merge their in-game appearances with the expressions of their voices, and then give them poses fitting to their personalities.
I'm more than glad to see, that either of them are to someone's liking! (it's so good to feel, that spending almost 12 hours on this wasn't a waste of time)

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.

Inspired by SpicyShimmy's fic Heavy Fire ... [link] .. When they were on Noveria.. such an amazing scene.

3/7/13 - Can a couple of you do me a favor? When you view this picture, inbetween Shepard's right arm (the one around Kaidan's Shoulders) and Kaidan's head, is it completely black or do you see a little of the collar from Kaidan's blue spectre armor? I'm starting to worry my monitor might be calibrated drastically differently from everyone else's.. @_@

3/8/13 - Lots of folks have chimed in to say they could see the small detail of the bit of collar between Shep's arm and Kaidan's head so PHEW.. SO RELIEVED! I'm not even kidding you, if I found out this entire time I was doing work and it was coming out washed in black and waaaaaay darker than I meant to I'd jump out a window.

My first submission of 2013!! :D

As I said in my journal; I want to challenge myself this year, and this is the first piece to start that tradition.

The main protagonist from the Mass Effect series: Commander Shepard. (The female one of course)
The armor and pose are heavily referenced off of the promotional shots for ME3, which I believe is quite clear to see.
But that's what you get when painting new things... you need references. But I just HAD to make her look like my personal femshep. :D

All comments are more than welcome and critique is always appreciated!

Dragon effect/ Modin and Tali Deep Roads Explorers

Shepard would run into these two while theyíre on an expedition in the deep roads (as to what theyíre searching for/studying Iím not exactly sure but you can be sure itís important work).

Mordin- he carries ancient deep roads maps with him to help navigate the expansive undrground tunnels and wields a variety of potent explosive mixtures to ward off darkspawn hordes.

Tali- Tali would be sort of an expert on Darkspawn behavior patterns/fighting abilities and therefore is accompanying Mordin on his mission and does most of the close range fighting with her dual-hooked swords. Also I've never really been crazy about Tali like some people, even found her a little annoying at times but I gotta say I had more fun painting her than any other character so far.

Next up will be either Liara and Javik or Liara and Samara since Iím envisioning asari as being involved with the chantry but not so much for Javik.

EDIT: Also I've seen a few people cirticizing me for not making Tali ranged, I definitely toyed with the idea but since I just did Garrus and Thane as a crossbow/archer I wanted to switch it up and I'm quite happy with the idea of seeing her dual wield swords in combat, but hey this is all just for fun anyway so don't take it so seriously. The aspect of Tali that I did try to carry over which is not evident in her design is that she'd be an expert on darkspawn, like how in ME she knows a lot about the geth.

The Mass Effect trilogy is probably among my top favorite single player games out there (I'm almost always playing Multiplayer games instead xP) Bioware really knows how to deliver an RPG experience, there's just so much delicious lore/culture in their titles that you can't help but get sucked in. I'm sure there are people out there who invest more time in relationships with a fictional crew member than they do with someone irl, hahaha!

Not only that though, I love how the mechanics promote well-played tactics/combos. I remember spending hours on the final mission of ME3 trying to beat it on Insanity with a Vanguard, it was stupidly rewarding when I finally completed it.

I kinda wish I spent more time with ME3 after beating the campaign though, I've heard a lot of great things out of the co-op mode from a friend recently.

PS. This guy has a lot of helpful ME reference stuff: [link]

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.).
