I love that the character of Shepard, no matter what she goes through, is never very emotionally demonstrative in front of other people. But if there's one time I wish there was a 'have a minor breakdown' option, it's after Arrival, at the end of Mass Effect 2. Everything that happens in 2 - being spaced, falling out with the Virmire Survivor, possibly losing a lot of the crew, working for the enemy of the Alliance, and finally having what happens on Aratoht on her conscience - it's all pretty dark.

Very beautiful colors and lighting. And you did a really good job on Shepard's eyes. I always find it difficult to paint teary read eyes and tears.

Thank you! :) Honestly, I tried once or twice to do some convincing tears on her cheeks, but it's difficult to make it work without it being a real closeup. Water droplets are hard to do well. I'm glad you think what I've done here has worked, though.

Agreed, completely, put the same thing into a fic for my Shepard.
