- Commander Shepard - by Anathematixs - Commander Shepard - by Anathematixs
My first submission of 2013!! :D

As I said in my journal; I want to challenge myself this year, and this is the first piece to start that tradition.

The main protagonist from the Mass Effect series: Commander Shepard. (The female one of course)
The armor and pose are heavily referenced off of the promotional shots for ME3, which I believe is quite clear to see.
But that's what you get when painting new things... you need references. But I just HAD to make her look like my personal femshep. :D

All comments are more than welcome and critique is always appreciated!

Commander Shepard and the N7 armor's copyright belongs to EA and Bioware.

Hello there! Been a while since I bugged you about posting artwork - I once shared a Miranda piece by you on Mass Effect Miranda Lawson - fanpage I admin on Facebook. I'm back again, except this time I'd like to post this one, and post it on Mass Effect Female Shepard. She's a pretty awesome femshep, this one you've done. Granted long-flowing hair probably *not* being the practical out-to-do-business style she'd be wearing but perhaps she's just finished causing mayhem out on the battlefield, and is 'letting her hair down', actually letting her hair down, lol. The lighting on the armour looks very realistic, and you did a great job with the moon too. The smudging for the emission of light from the omnitool: also works really well.

Anyway, I remember you were happy for me to share your Miranda picture so long as credit is given to you in the caption and a link back to your original is provided. I'd do the same with this one, just so you know. Great work regardless!

A female Commander Shepard is always welcome on deviantART, destroyed the Reapers and still is making waves in free time.
Nicely done.

...wow... a lot of your art's very organic and free flowing. Did you find the armour in this quite difficult at times? ... *is trying to take part in intelligent conversation instead of just dribbling everywhere*
It's gorgeous btw... like... really really. Like really really gorgeous. Like i think imma show this to all my Mass Effect fan-friends :D

Well, you've seen what it looks like up close, hehe. It's mostly just tricking the eye.
The omni tool was a pain in the ***!!!! But when I tried to paint just the hand it looked even worse, so I decided to put it back in xD

If I may be so bold to ask, but what is the code for your shep? I'm curious to see what she looks like in game.

:iconanathematixs:
Anathematixs Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
If you're ready for a pale-ass femshep.. lol
She doesn't look all that much in the the menu, but in the creator, game and cutscene's you'll see the similarities, I think:
753.68D.G5H.K71.CHF.1HH.PEJ.AC1.K86.CJH.7G5.425

TheSeanchaithe Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Student Writer
Thank you. And no worries, in ME3 my femshep was pale as hell... mostly because I figured if she was going to be cooped up on a military base off duty and all that she'd probably be mostly indoors which means her military tan would disappear... instant death-warmed-over look. XD
If anything, I could always edit it a bit in the creator to suit my tastes. But thank you again! :D

LOL yeah... Mine has been pale throughout the series tbh.
As a lot of people, I kinda tried to make my femshep look like, well.. me :P
Yes, I know... nerd!! XD
But I'm quite fair and quite often a redhead (not naturally, though.. shhh) hence those features on my femshep ^_^
And you're welcome! :D

No big deal, I make mine look as much like me as is possible but Bioware seems to have a vendetta against curly hair.
I have natural auburn hair so usually I'll go with an auburn or coppery color to my shep's hair.

This is the shep I've used a couple times: 753.QHG.M17.F8A.IDQ.14S.1D8.111.G96.414.2G6.176

This, commit may sound like someone we know, but it's about, Commander Shepard..... I love her look of concentration and she wear's an armor that, allows her to maneuver in any way possible. Her weapon's, alone, show that, her skills are more that adequate, she doesn't care that she's beautiful, she only knows , if you do harm, your going to regret it. The stare from, her green eyes, (like the artist(:) )should alone make you think twice. But when all is said and done, as she peals away her armor, and walk's toward you, her eyes, her hair, the glow of her skin, etc,......etc.,,,etc.,,,so, lets just say I love this work............................xclt

Did I happen to say that when I was hiking 1 1/2 months ago,I tripped and fell down a steep Ridge, but only about 40ft., and along with breaking my face, I broke my glasses. I am now so much more in Love with Commander Shepard, because of the love's I had , there was never a women in my life with blue eyes. And ..............I guess.........I may as well have a crush on you,also, if you so in fact,insist. :Licking:...( if the smiling face will not work, It's me giving you a Hug and licking your cheek)) So very sexy ***.............................................xc
