She is my next favorite to mordin. She is such a good person, but maybe sometimes too blinded by giving her people a home again. This is utterly amazing!

This is amazing man! I'm digging the Mass Effect references- great games :3 I, personally, love the background colour. It doesn't detract from the main piece, you know? All in all it's a really aesthetically pleasing and Tali'Zorah is a major boss.

Yep, vectors; originally only planned to do Tali and print her up to go with a geth Adam Sidwell made. But everyone liked her, so I just kept going (and stuck with the vector format for practice/possible future prints.)

They are tough. I was a taster only (photoshop, etc) for many years, so adding vector (illustrator, fireworks, flash) to my repertoire took a real adjustment to approach. But it's so worth it, just for the flexibility of size and ease of going back and adjusting later!

Keep practicing, and hit the web. smashingmagazine.com and abduzeedo.com are great resources for design stuff in general, including illustrator!

This is very nice! To me I like the background as it kinda draws you into Tali more than it would if the background was a darker or brighter color. I love the saying on the bottom as well it kinda reminds me of my two Quarian OC's in my story. =D This is an amazing job you did here.

i think the background feels a bit off because it is nearly (exactly?) the same color as the faceplate of the helmet, so it makes the face feel hollow. maybe yellow would work better?

The backgrounds driving me nuts because of exactly that. problem I think is every other one of the colors makes some other piece go 'hollow' or washes it out. The effect is kinda cool in a couple cases, but I could see some people disliking the effect, too.

Not sure, I've got r/masseffect at reddit looking too, if they concur on the gold/yellow, i've been leaning towards that too.

thanks for the input! might just be the best choice.
