First, I really like the design on her fabric, the swirling pattern is really interesting and keeps my eyes wanting to see more of her. I'm glad you kept it from the original too, also the same pose.

If this was Digital Painting, you took a lot of time to work on this, I am sure. If this was a 3D model, I'm sure it still took a long time too. xD I would just find the digital painting more impressive.

I also like the grainy/dusty effect towards the bottom, with the reflected lights. I also like that you added another person in the photo to give it more dynamic life, but what's right under the signature? Is that another (third) person? If it is, it's making a really weird tangent with the second person's leg. If it's the same person's leg, then it looks a bit off.

But overall, this is a really great piece. I can't give you 'originality' points, but you did a great job.
What do you think?

Well, I have to say that you've captured the scene very well. Being an avid ME player myself, I can remember the salarian off to the far right and the woman hanging her head off to the side. The amount of detail that you've put into the piece is astounding.

The grainy texture that you used really brought me back to the fist ME, so honestly the picture is a bit nostalgic of a opulent of reasons. They'd pictures once he was seem to be vey well done an in third places as if it's the game itself. I almost thought you had taken the image from the game itself and edited it, but I don't believe you did, it would require a lot of work to edit the image to this extent.

As stated in anther critique, I can't give you any originality points, but you did a fantastic job an have certainly earned a fave.

Touching and wonderful at the same time.

Looking from perspective of ME1 however title is ultimate irony.

This is so beautiful. Maybe there could be another one like this that includes Thane and Mordin? To Shepard and the rest of the Normandy, having all three of them placed together on the Citadel memorial wall would be appropriate and a sweet tribute.
I didn't cry when Legion deactivated, but I was overcome with sadness. I did cry, though, when Mordin sacrificed himself to save the krogan, and when Thane was spending his last moments with Shepard and Kolyat.

Featured in portuguese blog Coisas da Interwebs. Have an awesome weekend. If you could please share this feature, I'd really appreciate it, as lots of hard work goes into finding and selecting all the awesome art and running the blog. Thanks!…

Oh my god >.< I´m a big Mass Effect fan and i love Tali and Legion. Your picture is Epic, I have to fav it uû!
LostOddity Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013
Oh, this is amazing. I love the light bubbles giving it a sort of dreamy quality, and of course, the idea of Tali putting Legion on the memorial wall. It's a sort of lonely picture, but so beautiful and tender. <3

Thank you for the perfect conduct of my favourite ME character and the deep moment.

I'm too slow to write a critique. Needless to say, 5/5 on everything.

He was not just a geth, he was a geth with the heart of gold, a geth with honour, a geth that we will never forget. But he is not dead, he lives in our hearts (╯︵╰,)

Damn it BioWare, why'd you have to kill Legion?!
Jagun Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013
I know right? Probably my favorite character.

Legion is by far my favourite . Ties with Shepard.

Amazing drawing!!
Damiel Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
wow! stunning

you know, it's kinda stunning, the parallel between Legion's fate and Shepard's, especially if you choose Synthesis

Amazing. <3
Big-Wired Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
... ouch... my heart... beautiful work, as always. It's such a simple painting, really, the idea of it. Someone standing in front of a picture posted on a wall, and it holds that much more emotional depth.
ValentineFate Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
This is so beautiful! I love your work as always Brinx. I loved Legion so much. ME3 has some of the most heart felt scenes of the series within it. Legion's sacrifice was truly one of the most heartbreaking, along with Mordins. This sums up Tali's and Legions ending perfectly. 
shadowrider5 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
MY FEELS. Brinx, once again you have invoked a feeling I haven't felt ever since I played ME3 the first time. Well Done

Noooo whyyy :crying: rvmp 

Rip my heart out of my chest while your at it :(

*Sniffle* Okay, so the lighting is superb, it has a lovely nostalgic quality, probably that one sunbeam through the shadows. The close-ups of the dust motes make it feel more like a photo, and I don't know what you did to Tali's suit, but it looks fantastic. :rose:
OdieKun Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
Better ending than ME3.
PhunnyNe0n Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
eh, This is why I hate ME3 honestly

Good pic though

Nice, it's really good to see another piece from you Florian ;-)

It's really hard to believe how Tali's and Legion's relationship evolved from ME2 to ME3...

paweldaruk Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
Damn it, man, this is absolutely stunning!!!
