ME3 - Shepard told us they were coming... by Hedrick-CS ME3 - Shepard told us they were coming... by Hedrick-CS
[edit - Colorimetry and BG corrections ]
I DID IT ^^ !

I promised myself to finish a Mass Effect Fanart with Femshep before the realease of the game !
I wasn't sure i'll make it, before the sketch was ultimately crappy.
And, then, yesterday, I told myself " hey man, you have a unfinished sketch on which you can train as much as you want". So I took it and began painting on it.

I'm happy of the result, because it's my first painting WITHOUT any lineart ! yay!

I hope all mass effect fans will love it, and I hope all non mass effect fans will like it too :)

I love more and more challenges :D and that one was a big one, i told you ^^

To ME Fans : yes I know, Femshep as the omnitech on the wrong side, i realised it too late! :p

Sketch : red mechanical pencil
Colors : Photoshop CS
Mass effect belong to electronics arts and bioware.

I you want to link this fanart elsewhere on the internet, you can, but please don't remove the links in the pic and please link me :)

It paints the vision as good as any other picture of this nature that the Reaper's are here. That dosen't change the impact this picture took on me at first glance. Though it dosen't seem to origanal because theres plenty of pictures around showing Sheparad against terrifying odds. The technique is great, a detailed city in the background with the also detailed Reaper's ready to destroy it. The impact is without question heart wrenching and gets me ever so more ready for 3/6/12 It makes me think IfI or any other ME3 playe can actually succeed against these monsters, thank yo for this pictue it really is quite the accomplishment!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
29 out of 33 deviants thought this was fair.

First glance I was like, amazing pose, great lighting. Then I scanned over it, and the city scape is where most of this picture is at. Shepard and the lighting are only pieces of that, and in the end it's really what makes the picture come together as a whole. The only reason I've marked you down on the originality is because of the ideas you are pulling from. Shepard is, for many people, an established character and the concepts in the picture are already being used. However, using a city that I have never seen in these games and doing a wonderful job of making it look alive (or dying/used to be alive) shows you've got enough originality to not remove too many points.

It really helps your cause that I love these games and cannot wait for the new game to come out.

Great art per usual, but I think this one stands out just a little more.

Wow. I can tell that you put a lot of heart into this one so you deserve praise! The idea of Mass Effect(and a lot of games; all games actually, just depends on how enamoring the character/s and story is) is that you have this one character that *you* made in your own image going against a hopeless battle. Putting anything else aside, the whole 'hopeless' idea is definitely in here. You conveyed that idea quite eloquently but at the same time there is that Shepard that we all *created* still willing to try. Despite all odds and everything that didn't go right, s/he was still there ready to take on Reapers and anything and everything that goes against the concept of what s/he is fighting for. Your picture put that whole "you either die or fight" ambience! Great job on this! Probably one of my favorite work from you!

Though I'm not a fan of the Mass Effect, holy crap! This is just beautifully done! I'm amazed at how detailed this is. I can only imagine how long it took you to complete!
