Decided to do another Liara as the other one felt a bit tame for what she's about. Enjoy! :)

I really like this. So much of the Liara fanart I see has her portrayed either from a love interest perspective, or one which only emphasizes her sexuality. Which isn't to say that those aspects aren't also reflected here, but this piece does a lot more to show Liara as the warrior we don't necessarily always give her the credit of being. In being grouped with quiet, menacing characters like Garrus and Legion, testosterone fueled wrecking machines like Grunt and Wrex, Hollywood-style ultra gung-ho fighters like Miranda and Ashley, jokers like well... Joker, and the unstoppable hero Shepard, Liara's demeanor and even her very characterization get smothered, so to speak, by the attitudes of the other characters. She doesn't talk tough, she doesn't come up with snappy one-liners (at least not that often), and her voice sounds more like that of a dove than of a lioness. What makes her so endearing to me is that she is constantly underestimated, even by the players themselves. Yet as a character, she's not out to prove anything. She seeks only to get the job done. I think the term "closet badass" is most appropriate.

So thank you for depicting her this way, and for doing the character a little bit more justice.

Sincerely,

bailey

P.S. Great job on the armor

God, that was so well said! I always think about how I could describe her to someone, why I find her character so delightful and endearing, and you put it perfectly. Thank you!

And obviously I love the art as well, the colors are just amazing, really excellent work :)

I appreciate you saying so. I just switched from an Engineering to an English major, I'd like to think I have some talent for the written word. I guess practice never hurt anybody. Either way, the compliment was most appreciated, as was this piece.

You deserved every word. Subject matter aside, it's an amazing piece. I love the use of color.
