Still what I think of when playing ME.

It'a a nice design but it looks a little too hardened for Tali's personality, imo. I couldn't imagine this face turn all nervous and insecure when Shepard talks to her. It would probably fit more to a character like Xen.

Far superior to the game. If this is what Tali looked like on the game she would have been the hottest girl on the game to me😊💕

I wish this design of Tali's face is canon to the games:love:

I like this design of her far more than any other. But that's what I love about it as well is that we are free to speculate how they look under the mask. :)
Okay...this is epic
tali is the best choice for a girlfriend

Great image, very well done. Any chance I could buy a use fee for a thumbnail size image for a band CD inside cover? Band is my blues group Dr Rock & The Stuff.  CD has 11 tunes, one is mine, Rigor Mortis Blues, an alien abduction romance gone wrong, and this image would be a great tune character reference for the C wallet inside collage. Let me know if possible, and what you would charge. You can hear the new rehearsals of us playing the tune on youtube.   Thanks, Dave Lynch, guitarist

it's a shame to see this once great series in the state that it's in now.

Oh please, it's still a great series. Just because the Bioware B- team tried and failed to recapture the magic doesn't mean the series before it is somehow worse. That's like saying the newest model car in a long existing brand is bad, therefore all models before it are now somehow bad, too.. That isn't how that works. The ME Trilogy is still great and Tali is still and forever will be best gurl.

I'm gonna be honest.  I didn't even mind Andromeda.  It had it's issues certainly but I could see where they were trying to go with it and I did like the direction.  It reminded me a lot of the first in some ways in that there is a lot of rough stuff with it that needs to be ironed out but a framework is there.  My biggest issue was the plot and characters were kinda meh (again most of the characters in the original really had yet to hit their stride until they were advanced in the second game) and even that can be expanded on and made more interesting.

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

Have you ever heard the tragedy of Darth Mercy the Nerfed? I thought not. It's not a story the developers would tell you. It's a support main legend. Darth Mercy was a solo healer, so powerful and so wise she could use her powers to revive her teammates. She had such a knowledge of this power that she could resurrect her entire team just by hiding. She became so powerful that the only thing she was afraid of was losing her power, which eventually, she did. Unfortunately, the developers noticed this, and they nerfed her to her death. It's ironic. She could save others from dying but not herself...
