I saw Commander Shepard in person once, leaving a meeting with the Council. I don’t know how anyone- the Council included- says “no” to this man. I’d never seen anyone look so severe or intimidating in my life. But it didn’t make mer nervous. No, it made me certain that he’s the one who should be protecting us all. How could he keep going into those meetings and coming out looking like that- driven- if he didn’t have everybody’s best interests in mind? He’s the only one doing anything. So he can look as severe as he needs to. I’m not afraid of him.
But the Council should be. The Reapers should be.
Finally, a serious piece of art involving Adam Shepard! Hooray, it happened. The colors on this came out a lot more easily than I was anticipating— it was a lot of fun, all things considered.
New Mass Effect minimalist posters available!! Making steady headway on the remaining designs left in this set (there are still eight left after this), and now we have Ashley, Wrex, and two versions of Joker :D
Additionally, all of the minimalist posters will now be available in two sizes— the normal 8.5”x11” ($15) and also 4”x6” ($7). You can also bundle them— you can pick any two small ones for $12, any two large ones for $25, any three small ones for $18, and any three large ones for $40!
Get them on Etsy!
Okay, so I was putting off Grunt and Wrex in this style for a while because drawing aliens is scary, and then after I did Grunt’s ME poster I was putting off Wrex because he’s shaped really differently than Grunt and I didn’t want to get the scars wrong etc etc etc, but in the end it wasn’t so bad. After this I only have one more alien in the set left to do!
One of three new minimalist posters I did today!! Took me long enough to get around to Ashley but now that it’s done I am very pleased with how it came out!! I tried two versions— one of her ME2 appearance here and one also of her ME3 appearance with her hair down and the blue armor, but this one just came out better :D
Edit: holy crap these look so much better if you click them to hi-res!!!
Since I’ve been on such a Homestuck nostalgia bender lately, I wanted to just… draw… all the kids? Sort of as a comparison thing, practicing face shapes and resemblances— I wanted to make all the related pairs look very similar, Striders and Lalondes especially, as far as face shape goes, and then slightly less so with John and Jane, and then I like having Jade and Jake looking clearly related but not identical-twin level the way I see the other three pairs.
I MISS ALL THESE DUMB BABIES.
