Here I am, browsing dA for some Shakarian art (is it weird to look for such a thing when you're a guy?), then, out of nowhere, BAM! I stumble upon this beauty.
Setting the Presidium in nighttime is a nice and lovely change from the constant in-game daylight. The characters' pose is sweet and hits me right in the feels, and the lighting helps to improve the mood a great deal. Overall, it's a fantastic piece of fanart that earns you a new WATCHer!
And exactly how many regulations did you break to change the lighting?
I could tell you, but, honestly, I don't care... It was worth it.
actually I purchased a few comic books about ME & found that NONE of the female Turians have face paint, NOT even Garrus' mom.... So I did a little digging & come to find that it is the MALES who carry the face paint & not the females. It is like a bird society I guess, where like birds, the MALES have the brightest plumage. Which might explain the bright colors in outfits for the male turians while most females wear more neutral colors. Just thought I throw it out there for you. Still it is a nice picture.
Haha, it's a commission and the person requested face paint. But if you're regarding perhaps Homeworlds or Evolution, they only show like one female turian each or something, unless I see a little more than two I'm still pretty open to the idea of females having face paint myself. Unless you're talking about some other comics that I may have missed. Otherwise there isn't a whole lot out there on female turians to begin with, and I mean it's a fictional race, if people haven't seen much for the 'canon' designs then I feel anyone is free to interpret them as they wish. If you believe they don't have markings, great, if someone else thinks otherwise, so be it. But again=commission=requested facepaint, as in it's not really necessary for you to clear your findings and theories with me, sorry. I don't normally engage in these kind of things, if you really want to get your point out to someone who is more willing to listen and discuss further, I'm sure there are forums out there with relevant topics.
well... I was really referring to Garrus mother who did not have face paint in the ME comic "Bullet for your Sin". But I it was a request so it is all good. Just was thought I drop that bit of info. The artist is here in DA... He is awesome & his ink work rocks.
I'm going to refrain from going "aisuhfaisfha otp" like I usually would and comment on the masterfully done composition. I honestly believe I love the background a bit more than shep and garrus (I know whooa) D; It just looks so beautiful and effortless, I can tell you took the time for all the details. They look consistent and the lighting and textures work wonderfully. I also really like the floor! Yes the floor! haha and how the colors lead to you Shep's wedding dress. I can see the dedication that went into it and the aesthetics it produced! I've seen this on Taylor's tumblr for a while but I don't think I have ever told you how much I enjoy it. Well here it is. Cheers
