I like the idea behind this series - Mass Effect has some very powerful characters, specifically ME3 - I experinced genuine loss when Mordin's scene ended. Of all those linked, your portraits of Mordin and EDI have the most powerful pairing of text and image, although in Mordin's case you may have said too much.

The image is sound technically and only suffers from the high-contrast tattoo drawing attention from the rest of the composition. Chiefly, however, sometimes less is more with text. "It had to be me" sucks the focus away from the core message it precedes, as well as breaks up the caption awkwardly into two separate thoughts as opposed to one direct assertion in the way your EDI portrait does, giving it an elegant impact. I'm fairly confident that every person who counted Mordin as a freind would agree that his entire character can be summed up in that one sentence: Someone else might have gotten it wrong.

Yes, this is done in the freeware version.  There's no special plugins or anything here - just transparent .png images on some triangles rotated at various angles for variety.  i have them grouped into components of three or four triangles each and then repeated the components.  If I were to revisit this, i would probably try to use the 'face me' component property to keep all the faces relatively perpendicular to the camera so you don't see any of them on-end, which is really detrimental to the believeablity.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention - I've added my say to the issue but it seems like a very low-risk infraction and you've handled it well.  Cheers.
Is that concrete you're using as an background texture?
