- 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!
This art may not be used, referenced, reproduced, posted or altered without our expressed written and signed permission, my art is not stock!!!

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

DrRiptide Jan 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist 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*

Thank you so much, sweetheart!!! :heart:
Yes, the armor was a pain in the a** quite a few times and this painting took me a dear sweet amount of time! But it was totally worth it in the end!! :D

Whoops I'm a bit behind, didn't realise you had submitted it already >_< But awesome as always! And totally jealous of the way you have done the armor. I also love how you have done the omni tool!

LOL don't worry sweetie, it's all good :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
