Mass Effect - After the Reaper

(Garrus Vakarian and my custom build female Shepard from the game Mass Effect 2, for those of you coming in who don't know the source.)

Colonist, sole survivor, vanguard, full paragon... (All on PC - I haven't dusted off the 360 in months.) After not having played the first game when it came out, when ME2 came out, I played both back to back for about 70 hours of great times. I think my proudest moment was bum rushing Harbinger. It was a thing of beauty.

As much as I love femShep/Garrus, I have every intention of producing some Shepard/Tali in the future. And Mordin, Wrex, Legion, Liara... Also, Joker/Kelly. Really, there's very little I'm not inspired by with this series.

And yes, I have seen the single piece of concept art of a nude turian. Until we see one in the game, I'm going with it being just that - a concept. Why the smooth collar ring when everything else we see is scale or segment-like? I'll have to upload my own idea at some point.

My other Mass Effect art - Tali, Mordin, etc!

There should be a MShep/Tali version of this as well. I'm a Shakarian and Talimancer fan!

My wife and I bought this one (her romance in the game) and the Shep/Tali (which was mine) and could not be happier with the prints. They go wonderfully with the painting I did of the Mass Effect-Final Supper that I did. Our wall of Mass Effect is coming along nicely thanks to you

I have to say I love this. Garrus and female shepard? I think yes xD

I got to admit, the Garrus romance was pretty interesting, man too bad Bioware couldn't had this as a ending for Garrus Romancers. Anyway nice work

I purchased this at Anime USA in DC this year and I am so happy I found your booth. I joined deviant art around the time when I first began playing the Mass Effect series and this was one of the first pieces with Garrus and Shepard I found on deviant art. I love having this print sit on my bookcase where I can see it. Thank you again for this print and I cannot wait to purchase more!
