Headshot Squad by Chacou Headshot Squad by Chacou
Shepard frowned.

Apparently there was an invisible button labelled "push to talk" on the side of her head...


You know, I always wondered why Shepard would poke him/herself in the head when speaking on the comn...


Finally finished after working on this sporadically for the past few months and redrawing everything single thing, I just couldn't get the motivation to finish this properly.

My creator was wondering if you could make a new one and do it as a group photo with Shepard-Commander, Garrus, Legion and Zaeed and all of them holding the M-92 mantis sniper rifle.

Fantastic piece. The colors and detail is awesome.
Terenin Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013
In case it has not been pointed out yet, the 'putting hand to headset' move is not to push a button to talk - it's to push the headset closer to the ear and try and block out noises so you can more easily hear what people try to say to you - in a combat situation any loud noise can make it harder to hear and that's not good :)

As for the picture itself, very awesome. The use of color, the composition, style and the squad setup itself is damn good. I love fooling around with this setup myself even if it's somewhat impractical to have a one-trick pony team :(

WOW beautiful pic ! Nice colors and great details :D

PS. My favourite squad in ME2 ( three snipers - hell yeah :P no matter that in team should be everyone with various skills )

Actually, no. It's good to know or at least try to guess who will you be fighting. For example why would I take a biotic when I'm going to shoot the geth (Team Headshot is almost perfect for this)? Or why would I bring a krogan against Eclipse, when I'd make a better use of an engineer and a biotic. And I would rather take a team biotic - sniper against the Collectors (or if I am a biotic, two snipers). Now I noticed that when you don't need an engineer, you need a sniper. Legion and Garrus are pure perfection. The Widow wins everything XD

Your take on Shepard is gorgeous! And my favorites, Garrus and Legion :la:

This is just amazing.
spek09309 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2011
wow the background is gorgeous and you worked the lighting so well :)

I always figured it was an earwig or an implant.
drawanon Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is so pretty *u* Great job!
Madame-Arwen-Rommel Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2011
Really amazing work. :wow: You portrayed my favourite squad members (Garrus :love: & Legion) brilliantly. And like this pic's mood, kinda dark but not desperate.

DOWModder Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Lovely! Just add Thaine - forgot him!
Chacou Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No I remembered. I just chose the best snipers for the squad. :)

Indeed, maybe theres a button... or maybe she's using telepathy XD
Knight-Watcher Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I would say this is the most game authentic looking art I have seen tonight. Legion literally looks like Legion and as for Shepard she's ready for action I'd say.
ApDrakaan Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010
Amazing detail! I love this.
JohnnyDepp-Fan Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow this is awesome, i love it =D
Vitae-Insanity Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Turned out gorgeous :D
I especially love the cityscape in the background, I can never get stuff like that to look right ^_^
Yanarada Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010
chisah Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010
at least that ensures that she would not go for shortcuts so also wouldn't make the bind for push to talk to alt+f4 xD
nice pic you have here, and I see that the "possible Illium" background question was already answered X3

and random rant: I wish garrus actually kept the sniper for longer than few seconds after I make him equip it, he switches to the other wep for some reason at all time when he thinks I am not looking, cheeky rebel

Maybe the comm button was inserted into her head while they rebuilt her... Oh wait, does that mean TIM can stalk her? Nononono. Mordin can fix it. Not a problem.

Legion looks amazing here and this is a great headshot team (Garrus <3). Other one with a sniper rifle is Thane but I always take Legion and Garrus when I need to kill synthetics ^^
CircuitDruid Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2010
hehe 'headshot squad'
Dracoain Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010
I love the title for this, did an awesome job on Legion!
sari-croft Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010
I also love Garrus and Legion to be in my team:) absolutely amazing pic!
thaLadyNeko Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Jaquier Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Damn that's a gorgeous looking Shepard there <3
And it appears that you have two of my favourite characters in there :dance: (Legion and Garrus).
The city in the bacround looks like Illium in my opinion... or are they somewhere else?
Chacou Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thankyou :XD:. I just made a generic city for the background, they're definitely not on Illium.
Jaquier Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I see. But still, very impressive =]
Zaera-D Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010   Digital Artist
Oooo. I like all the details. The city lights, the broken glass...
FoxHawke Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010
Wonderful, and I always figured that's how her comm worked. You don't see it but Shepard knows where to tap to get it to work. :nod:
DeviousAkane Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
awesome pic, I like the detail and the lighting
Pereprin Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist

Ah, such a great squad. Witty comments and big honkin' space guns. Bam.

Don't forget the ongoing competition for the most headshots. :XD:
