Anavi, for the first time ever in all the years I've been following your work... I'm speechless.
I honestly cannot for the life of me think of anything witty, clever, funny, cheeky or whatever to say because, I don't really think I can put into words the emotions I'm feeling looking at this art. There are obviously a few note worthy things to point out, mainly how you've improved since the original (so much more detail added to the armour, the hair is more crisp and detailed, and don't get me started on the texture of that freckled skin).
You see this has a serious deep meaning to me. Not because it's a Badass lady, not because it's a Badass Redhead lady, and not because it's Femshep of all Badass Redhead ladies.
It's becuase of what it symbolizes.
Don't know what I mean? Allow me to elaborate. It was through this artwork - or rather the original 2013 version - that I first discovered you when you originally submitted it to one of the Mass Effect groups I had joined (somewhere in the flood of comments, I'm sure my original comment is there somewhere). It was because of this artwork that you and I first met.
I think that's something which makes this paricular piece truly special that one of my trademark fancy comments isn't required, don't you think?
