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!

Haaaaaaaaa too true!! That's why she would have it tied up if she wasn't posing for an awesome picture..
(See! I made it make sense! :D But seriously, you are correct. That hair would be all over the place, in her way and getting caught in everything... but it made for a cool painting, hehe)

This is beautiful. And I so wish my Shepard could have long gorgeous hair like that. 
Would really love more Mass Effect pictures!

Me too! But I guess I would feel sorry for the animators as well. Plus, not really practical for all the fighting and running around...
I am trying to finish another piece in time for N7 day, but I am afraid I might be late. Though, there is more ME coming for sure!

This is one beautiful artwork.

Great job!!!

Anathematixs, do you mind checking my femshep and tell me what u think?

Its a render though, not artwork, so I can't say I've worked as hard as you did... it was hard though, just not that hard in comparison I guess... :D

Thank you so much!!! :hug:
I will go and have a look, for sure and leave my thoughts.

As for hard work: 2D and 3D are different ways to get results. I can make a spiky ball in C4D and a nautilus shell in Bryce.... not fully render something in 3DSmax. I would not even know which buttons to push to get anything to work xD At the end of the day hard work is about effort, and I know 3D work can take as much effort as any 2D does. I do not know how much time you spent on your render, so it is not for me to judge, but I reckon we used similar amounts of time, therefor similar amounts of effort.
No selling yourself short, mister! :P
