Saren is such a sad character. He gave everything to join Sovereign because he thought it would save the galaxy, only to be destroyed by his desire to help.

Very nice. One problem though. Saren does have a brother but it's not Nihlus. Read the comics. His brother was indoctrinated but Reaper tech and could've turned the entire Turian population in husks on Paleven but thanks to the Illusive Man and Saren they stopped him.

It's not brothers in a familial sense, but more brothers in arms.

I think Saren actually saved Nihlus, i mean who knows what Sovereign had planned for him if Saren hadn't killed him.

Poor Nihlus. His eyes make him look like he's about to cry:( Love that art, though. Good job.

This is beautiful. It really gives Nihlus some closure. I just wished that he wasn't used as a plot device. There was some real potential for his character.

I always knew saren had a guilty conscience. Sad that he fell under the control of Sovereign...

Спасибо, задумывала серию пародий на картины наших великих, никак трёх охотников не закончу с тремя лучшими турианцами)

From the very first moment I saw Nihlus, I loved him to death...when he was shot it tore me apart in a sense.. It was sad for me. I also felt something for Saren in the end...he redeemed himself in his last moments on the Citadel--showed his true self. Just like in this picture. Absolutely moving.

The more I think about it, the more sad this is. I would go as far as to say that it is just as sad as the painting that you link. I'm also glad that this is traditionally done. That is rare on DA.
