:heart: Thank you so much to everyone who faves and comments. My inbox is full everyday with amazing feedback, I don't have time to reply to everyone, but I appreciate every comment and fave. You guys are awesome <3 :heart:

Please download for close up (you can see her scales!) :la:

:bulletred:This was featured in SpawnPoint which you can see here: [link]

After finishing Mass Effect 3 I just had to do this painting of Liara. What a wonderfully intriguing character she is. Fell in love with her and obviously her amazing voice actress Ali Hillis :heart:

Done in Photoshop and took around 40+ hours to complete. I'm still quite new to digital painting so I'm aware there are many mistakes. I used a few in game references to help with the background and her armor. I also used a photo of her face model to get the expression just right.

Dedicated to all Mass Effect fans out there - Hold the line :la:!

Please also check out Garrus!


Liara and Mass Effect belong to Bioware

Wow...just so beautiful and amazing. Just love her 'look' :D

It took me a few tries to get the look just right.
Thanks so much for your kind words!

I would be truly honored if you would allow me the use of this pic in a video devoted to Liara and Shepard's love for each other. I guarantee your name, screen or real, in the credits. And a link back to your DA page or other homepage you prefer.
Please let me know what you think at your earliest convenience.

Of course you can!
Thanks so much for wanting to use it, and also asking my permission first. I really appreciate that.

Send me a link to your video once you've finished it ^^

I think her expression is like:'Oh, Jane, really, I got work to do-but....if you insist....I suppose I could make room for just the two of us....'
AMAZING work! I love it!:happybounce: 
whatever-kathryn's avatar

Thanks so much :tighthug:

Love her expression here and her body language...sort of saying "are you serious, Wrex?"

Amazing ^^ Good work :D Can you do Miranda ?
whatever-kathryn's avatar
Thanks very much :D
Ahh, so many people have asked me to do Miranda I swear. she's definitely
on my list but I have no idea of time scale on that one.

Absolutely gorgeous. The work that you did definitely shows, and you should be very proud!!
whatever-kathryn's avatar
Ahhh thank you so much for your kind words!
It's still the piece of art i look at and go "I actually dis this....."
I'd love to do another one of her, and the rest of the ME crew.
annatheginger's avatar
Do you take requests, though? Because I have an asari and drell OC that you would draw amazingly.

If not, don't worry about it. You're still awesome :)

Believe me, if i had the time I'd do them for you, but working full time now just doesn't give me any freedom :(

I'm currently working on my first digital painting in months, feels so good, but I can only do little bits at a time since i'm always exhausted when I get home. What is life!

Have you heard about the new DLC? apparently it's meant to be pretty emotional....god I hope so.
And seriously, you're awesome :tighthug:
annatheginger's avatar
Oh dear, I'm sorry:( I hope you find some freedom for yourself! If you ever have time lemme know, but keep up what you're doing because, seriously, you're so talented.

Ohhh yes I'm so excited for the new DLC... I'm just hoping it gives us closure or...something.

And you're awesome :huggle:
whatever-kathryn's avatar
Too kind, too kind! :blushes:
I reaaaaaaaaally, really really want to do one with FemShep and Liara, but that will hopefully come later this year.

I can't wait for the DLC, I hope it gives us closure as well, the end left me in the worst state i've ever been in!
Emotionally drained, it was awful. But I know so many fans felt the same.
