Tali by WolfCryi Tali by WolfCryi
Tali'Zorah nar Rayya from Bioware's Mass Effect.

Tali: My background is an indistinct smear, I didn't know you were an abstract artist...

I'll do a more interesting version of her sometime. Flashing her Omni tool of doom.

This is easily the sexiest quarian I've ever seen. I just wish I could see under that damn helmet.

Yes, but I expect that Bioware is avoiding the "big reveal", because they know no matter what they come up with, someone, somewhere will be disappointed.

I only started with the ps3 version of 2 a couple weeks ago. I say fuck it! Who cares what people think! Everyone wants to see Tali's face! Hell (if you chose her as your romance) Shepard did! Why not us!

Well now they have to do it in ME 3, because that's supposed to be the final installment in this series and everyone wants to know, the mask is off, time to do it.

Her background could be something out of a 'Yes' album. Very cool.

Don't know why Tali was my favorite character. I think it was the accent. XP

The technique's very good, but if I may, one minor point of criticism: Tali's head is overly large compared to the rest of her, and its position atop the neck is not 100% correct.

Apart from that, great work :)

Your work's sweet, so sweet it makes me even more sick because of BioWare's fail on Tali's future :/

"According to GDC rumors, Tali's thread will expand in upcoming sequel as she turns out to be in fact a rebellious geth spy, which managed to escape from the Veil. With personality based upon the only species well known by the machines – quarians, it uses a pattern of true Tali'Zorah nar Rayya, who lived 300 years before. It may explain how Tali received intact audio data from geth’s memory core, her limited knowledge about the Citadel space, amazing engineering skills and why she never takes her mask off."

also wouldn't the "real" Tali be called Tali'Zorah vas Rayya, seeing as 'nar' is replaced by 'vas' at the end of the Pilgrimage

Leaves me a bit skeptical at the whole thing frankly

I'll wait to play the actual sequel before I make judgments about Bioware's ability to continue the story they started. Rumors are interesting, but sometimes learning too much about a game before it comes out ruins fun/interesting surprises you'll like.

I'm more interested in Liara's continued thread. : )

I used a few layers for the mask, more so than the rest. Fiddled with opacity and things on it too.

I tend to think of myself as weak when it comes to color. (Haven't really used color actively to achieve a very specific effect)

But Thanks. : )

It's nice seeing this take shape, and I like it : )

The "abstract" stellar sort of background goes nicely with that sort of pinkish orange against her dark outfit. Also it works well with the idea that she comes from a nomadic sort of race that dwells amongst the stars and never settles.

Yes, DA appears to be lacking in Tali fanart; part of why I want to do something more interesting with her.
