Passing by years later to say this is one of the most emotion-invoking images I've found, and I've spent a fair part of these last years browsing the internet for ME-based art. Goes well with my recent playthrough. Thank you.

What really blows my mind, is how subliminal you are with the symbolism... 
It seems like the end of the road for Shepard, beaten bruised and scarred. At that moment, alone, in all of the entire universe there's only this moment and this one person.

Then the memories, the life, the people, that got her there.

Humanity, the Alliance, origin and genesis. 

Cerebus, for all their faults, still proof that nothing is without merit.

Criminals, proof that there is always chance for redemption.

Samara, finally one with Eternity.

Indomitable, uncontrolled but with direction. 

Protheans, part of the past, but also the present. 

Mordim, poor Mordim, carrying the sin of a billion murders. Finally free.

Beginnings, new chances from the dust of others.

Threats, but also hope. Creator and destroyer, part of the same coin.

*Friends*. All of them.

Salvation, requires martyrdom, martyrdom requires martyrs.
A life that was worth living, full circle, the end of the beginning. 


I may be off, I know people sometimes project their own ideas of art. The only symbolism I really didn't get was the person standing in between Jakira and Liara. Either way, thank you profoundly for this piece!

"The only symbolism I really didn't get was the person standing in between Jakira and Liara."

I think that it is the sculpture of the goddess they found in Thessia, unequivocal link between Protean and Asari cultures.

This really is a masterpiece, I especially love how determined Shepard looks in the second last panel.
 I was so sad after finishing ME3, but looking at beautiful fanart helps :)

I love how you grouped the characters.  Tali, with the moon behind her, and Legion above her, looked like it would fit in Quarian history as a nearly-religious icon.  The feels in this picture are truly strong.

It's just... EXACTLY how I thought when I finished the trilogy! I also choose Synthesis and everyone came to my mind.
I played has male Shep and got romance with Tali, but the feeling is mutual.
And outstanding masterpiece, congratulations! :)
