A Photographer on the Citadel - Liara + Chair

A Photographer on the Citadel

In a quiet part of the Citadel Wards, in a small alley known only to the locals, lies a studio.
Here lives and works a photographer who boldly defies all contemporary holographic technologies, relying instead on ancient human devices
based on crude mechanics and chemistry to capture his motifs.

Now - be it by chance or by purpose - some of the greatest heroes of our time found their way into that studio to stand before the camera...

You can find the whole series > here <

The "Bla bla bla" part

Something calm.

Spent faaaar too much time fiddling with the smallest of details, especially the lighting. Still could spend hours with further improvements but at some point you just have to stop and move on ...

The technical stuff

All pictures of this series are based on character models and textures extracted directly from Mass Effect 3's game files and modified by me where I deemed it necessary.
Posing, lighting, rendering were done in 3dsMAX + V-Ray.
Background, composing, postprocessing in PS.

As a girl who is totally in love with Liara, let me say this is one of the most beautiful, artistic, and charming portraits of her I have ever seen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this. :love:
