We did it, Shepard by Ma-rin We did it, Shepard by Ma-rin
My personal Mass Effect 3 ending (or a part of it). All squadmates fight like hell, Reapers go boom, Shepard leans on Liara, totally exhausted from the events, everyone looks like shit :B

It's a cheap colored version as I was painting it in greyscale. And I hope my guess was correct that Asari bleed purple (the blood on her cheek is not hers) and not red. Don't worry that everything seems to explode in the background, I was just not paying attention to anything. Hurf durf.

Nothing I do is finished, whoooouu~

EDIT: Polished it a little bit

In my canon playthrough Shep actually breaks up with Liara in the third game, to spare her the pain of what the future might bring - so Shep ends up alone, with no one to comfort her before the final missions, and it is a gut wrenching, lonely sensation, but it was appropriate for my character.  In my last playthrough I chose to maintain my romance and that was rather well done, too; Shep feels like she has someone there for her, someone to fight for and someone to come back to ... it's powerful in a different way; especially when I think I might die on the station.  This picture captures the aftermath of that very well.

Thanks :) I could never break up with Liara after everything those two have gone through together but your thought is interesting (sparing her the pain and all). It's cool we can all have our individual playstyle.

Love the mood to this.
Liara's head is a bit too big.


Absolutely fantastic facial expressions!

The feelings, this takes me over a year back to the time I expected to see this happen.
Sniff, why bioware? why?
 This was what I hoped to see.
 A true masterpiece. It is great.

Way it should have ended. But with the implication that this was a breathing space and this was only the end of this Reaper army.

Not a fan of the weird shape that you give Liara's head, nor of her face scales, but your Shepard is great, especially the hair. The hilights are just fantastic, and complement the burning sky in the background nicely. What little is visible of Shepard's face is also well done, poor thing looks exhausted and ready to collapse (if she didn't have an arm around Liara she probably would). There is no celebration, just weariness.
The battle damage to her shoulder armour is a nice touch.

I can't even find proper words to say how much I like this picture and how great it is. Heart Clap  Too bad that this wasn't one of the ending possibilities cause I would be totally fine by this ending. Nod

Nice pic and an ending that isn't full of plot holes, nonsense, and doesn't butcher the lore.
