Adam Shepard, ages 18 and 32
I was going to do a lot more with this, but then I liked how it looked with only the skin shaded.
Now on the right blog: I chucked together some progress-type things… I had wanted to do this for this picture but I forgot to grab, like… any full-image shots from when I had just the flat colors down :( ah well. So basically, a big step-by-step of the image and then some other detail work screencaps I took.
when we dance, it looks just like fire when we sing, it sounds the same tone we all have hearts, we all have homes, but when we die, we die alone.
As anticipated, this got finished a day late… but, well. You can’t rush art, or whatever. There are some things I’m still kind of ?? about here but if I stare any more at the effects on the biotics my head is going to explode.
Well, in case I don’t finish my more Serious Art in time— here’s Adam Shepard being entertained by watching the festivities at his own birthday party. Like, can you even imagine the shenanigans going on here? Trying to explain human birthday customs to all the alien crew members? Garrus using one of those… paper whistle blowy things? Liara wearing a party hat?
Happy -140th, Shepard.
Ahhh, thank you so much!! I’ve been working really hard for the past year or so, so it’s super nice to hear that you like it!
Okay I finished my last drell MP character’s color reference and decided to just slap ‘em all onto one photoset… these were really fun to develop, I have played more with color designing these punks than like… ever before and I JUST REALLY LOVE DRELL OKAY [TAPDANCES AWAY]
More multiplayer OCs 8D; this one’s my drell assassin/infiltrator. I still have one more drell left to do, and then I’ll probably move on to my other classes/species… developing appearances for multiplayer characters is weirdly fulfilling.
Coloring drell remains the most fun I’ve had coloring anything in months!
Spent a bazillion years looking very, very closely at Thane’s in-game model to get all the parts of this guy’s face right— but, here’s a quick color reference for the drell adept I play in ME3MP. Plotting out color schemes for drell is a BLAST even if trying to get their facial structure right is a pain in the butt.
