Lowpoly mini Mass Effect scene - hires tex version

A while ago I wanted to make some little low-poly retro versions of Mass Effect characters. I was gonna do like 3, at most. But I got carried away, so here's a whole bunch of them.

I was originally going to render these at a very low texture resolution, but I got too attached to my 512x512 work textures, so I kept them in there. I still put up an additional version of the scene with all characters at 128x128, because that was originally the point after all. You can see that version here: [link]

I'll upload some closeups of individual characters over the next few days. In the mean time, have some Shepard: [link]
(Edit: got around to posting them all, if you wanna see them, they're in the gallery. :))

PS: Yeah I know it's a bit of a mix and match of different versions of the characters from different installments in the series, but I didn't take it that seriously, so there. =P

(Edit again: since a lot of people are asking: I used Blender both for modeling and texturing.)

(Last edit: since the journal I posted the source files in is off my main page now, here's a link to them: [link])

Okay, let's see what's going on here.
Shepard's taking on THREE reapers alone, Tali's tripped on something, Garrus just got klonked in the head by a missile, Wrex and Grunt are having a headbutt showdown, Liara's performing a fireworks display, Thane's...Praying, i think, Mordin's doing science stuff, and Miranda's...idk.

Still the most adorable use of the Mass Effect license ever.  I'd kill for little figures of these.

I thought li'l Thane looked all sad, but (if I'm not much mistaken) he seems to be looking at...something else. :heart:

He's meditating, i dont think Miranda's geneticaly enhanced ass has anything to do in this story.
... well, i guess ?

In case no one else has said it: Ah! So that's what Mass Effect: Andromeda is going to be like. Awesome! :D
