The Promise by Ma-rin The Promise by Ma-rin
I lost my patience with this one and somehow Shepard's arms disappeared into nothing... hmmm... must be space magic.

Anyway, this is another small little piece of how I imagined the ending. I painted the same wounds as in this one [link] and yeah, they are on the wrong side. Somehow this always happens, haha. But maybe it's a totally new scenario (hey, Liara actually wears her armor) and I have an excuse for my stupidity.

I really like this for several reasons which you've probably already heard a dozen times but I'm going to say them anyway.

The sensuality is very strong and you accomplished that several ways; through their expressions, the way Shepard is leaning on Liana and Liana about to kiss Shepard's tags. It all comes together quite well and I really get a sense of their love through the picture.

Something else that I really like about this is how you created that sensuality without making Mass Effect into something it's not. What I mean is with the other tiny details, like their battle wounds and the background, this still feels like Mass Effect even though the game wasn't sensual in it's nature. I can completely imagine this scene being in the game, and I really like that!

Sorry to ramble on, this one really caught my eye. Well done :]

Thank you for your nice words! I love to hear why people like a picture I painted or drew because that gives it more meaning and therefore it gives meaning to me as an artist, which is what I always seek. To be honest, I don't really think about what I'm drawing and why when I do it. I put on some good music that fits what I want to create and then I just let it happen. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

Thanks again and have a nice weekend :)

There is so much in this that I totally, absolutely love. I favorite'd this a while ago, but I was just browsing again and came back to it realized just how much I freaking love this haha. If there was a way for me to quadruple favorite this and put it on a shiny stand I would. And I'm not a little scaredy to comment on things now, so I feel like this needs another comment :D

 

First, the armor is just freaking fantastic. The scuffs, the blood, the damage, it's all put together so well that makes it seem so realistic (which, all of it is, but just to point a few things out haha)

 

Then, just... aghhhh their expressions. Good lord have mercy that little tiny tear is a kick in the feels. And the forehead thing? Too much for me haha. This scene is so utterly perfect that it makes me want to melt into happy puddles.

 

And oddly enough, the part that is one of my favorites is Liara's cut on her crest. I dunno, it's just the way you molded it over her crest so well,that is just so cool.

 

Anyway, I justreally, really love this and wanted you to know it :D :heart:
