Some time ago, I created a tumblr account (which can be found here).  I'm not sure if I will ever get around to posting anything in it (or figuring out how to use it), but if anyone wants to make requests there, feel free to do so.

The million dollar question: Are you planning in releasing Mass Effect Andromeda models?? I'm especially interested in the Ryder twins armors. I've always used your references for my costumes! :D

Just wanted to drop in and say your stuff is great! I've been using it since 2011 (on a different account, of course.) <3
Hey just saw your gallery! i love your work its phenomenal. Was just wondering; have you done; Harbinger possessed Collector drone, Asari Councillor, Okeer, Kirrahe, Veetor, and a Hanar. Cheers! :)

Do you think you could add more structures references ? Only two Asari skycrappers atm :/
I'd be particularly interested in seeing some of the skycrappers at the start of ME3 and some of cerberus's labs/facilities.
I'm building some modern/futuristic stuff in Minecraft atm and ME is obviously epic for inspiration.
I'll post some screenshots when I have more stuff available if anyone's interested ^^

Thanks a lot!
You've helped me create 3d-printed props from my favorite game of all times!
Every model is available for free here:…

I was wondering if you had the ability to extract the wall, floor and ground textures from the games, I am creating a Mass Effect RPG that compiles all three games together in a more comedic way and I can't get any good references to work off of when it comes to flooring and such.

I also thank you for the models and such, they are very helpful in making the character sprites. (I've currently only done Samara, working on Wrex and male Shepard)

I am looking for references for all MP enemies in ME3 including ones like dragoon and geth bomber... any chance you could do those too?
Thelonewandererof101 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2015
I hate to ask (again?), but could you please add the m99 saber to your list of weapon references?
