This is what I view for my Shepard after the ending of Mass Effect 3, and the only thing I really felt like Mass Effect still needed after the extended cut. I felt like the course of Mass Effect's story arc and dialog with love interests it did not lend itself well to an unhappy ending, I think Shepard was a hero who deserved to live his days in peace. I was actually more upset I didn't get a krogan squad-mate then I was upset by the ending. Especially with the loss of Grunt as a squad-mate after his great respect for you as his battlemaster in ME2. I'm thinking of going back and adding a background I just wasn't sure what, I'm thinking Earth because Shepard should still be on the Citadel after the destroy ending (even though it blew up?) Anyways, hoping you guys (assuming anyone read all that) give me some good criticisms, I still have a good amount of room to fix the picture and add details.

P.S. sorry femsheps

This picture. If you don't mind I would like to draw this scene. Is that fine with you?
LithiumSpartan's avatar
also, if this would look better with different characters in your vision go for it, for me these three just meant the most to me

I'll be sure to give you credit. How do I tag people on the description?
LithiumSpartan's avatar
haha, I don't honestly know, I'm not concerned with credit I mainly just want to see how yours turns out

LithiumSpartan's avatar
yes, I'm entirely confident you'll make it better, just send me a message so I can see it when you put it up

Thank you for the faith but you seem to have drawn that Grunt's armor with such ease. I'll try to see if I can get him in a different angle.

In another one of your drawings with Grunt he looks better then he does here haha

Oh that one lol This pic took all of my Spring Break =.=
But I had enough practice with Krogans that I was able to work with his face (Grunt's was easier because he had less detail than other Krogan)
LithiumSpartan's avatar
really? I felt like his baby plates had more detail than that of the adult krogan

out of curiosity what characters do you plan to be using? Wrex could make just as much sense as Grunt I just figured he'd be busy keeping the more hot headed clans under control once the battle settles

I'ma use both of them. Garrus and Possibly Liara. I was thinking his main brothers in arms. But my Shepard was with Liara so that's why I might include her.

I felt like it needed the love interest, I figure she would run past them to get to him and embrace him, and a krogan holding a big rock it definitely needed that

Both true facts. I'll try to make both Wrex and Grunt have a semi worried look on their face.
LithiumSpartan's avatar
haha, I took an opposite route, maybe it doesn't show but I tried to make the other two somewhat solemn but I tried making Grunt more cheerful because I figured he'd go into thinking that seeing Shepard he know he'd pull through, krogan to me seem less hung up on the idea of death than the other races, either brushing it off or accepting it, unless it is their babies or their females they don't like that

I realize I'm a mediocre artist but I can assure you that hugging is the highest level of physical intimacy depicted in this illustration

Sorry, I find human/asari just as disgusting as you find human/krogan

I'd like to point out two key variables you don't seem to be considering, the first would be my picture doesn't actually depict any inter-species sexual activities it only depicts friends finding their lost hero, anything else is inferred, the second and likely more important variable is that science fiction and is established as a fantasy for the viewer to explore fantasies they have, an asari is just a glamorized human being so wanting to mate with one is not that much of a stretch, a krogan is a reptilian biped so suggesting that you desire to mate with one indicates the artist may have fantasies of having relationships with reptiles, which is inherently a problem for the individual as well as any reptiles that may fall victim to this person's fantasies

You are a fucking moron

Krogan =/= real life reptiles, the fact that you think liking krogan indicates someone would like real life reptiles in a bestiality kind of way and the fact that you have krogan icons indicates to me that you yourself might have problems with RL reptiles
LithiumSpartan's avatar
you don't see how having fantasies of having sex with a large reptilian creature would indicate someone has sexual fantasies related to reptiles and I'm the moron? I'm abundantly aware that fantasy and reality are not the same thing but it can give us insight about people, it would be entirely ignorant to suggest art does not reveal to us some insight about the artist, why else would you draw somebody having sex with a reptile?
