It took me longer then it should've to see that she has the Vakarian markings tattooed around her ankle.

Other then my brain not seeing that, this is amazing.

Would it be possible to upload this at a higher resolution? There's so much detail that's lost at the current resolution.

One last comment...! I love how happy Shepard looks but from what I've seen in-game of Garrus' smiles, they are mostly expressed through the skin around his eyes if that makes any sense...

Also I love your interpretation of nekkid turians! Hard to remember it's not canon.

I just want to verify this, unless I am hallucinating but...is that tattoo around Shepard's ankle Garrus' facial markings? Cause if it is...@.@

It is. :) I'm sure everyone's Garrus romancing Shepard would handle it differently - I've seen quite a few pictures where she gets the markings to match on her face, and one person saying their Shepard has them across her back, but for mine, this seemed just right.

I really should read the comments more often because just as I posted it you had already confirmed it! My bad. I do like your personal take on it though..it's so fun to see what other fans come up with!

And this is what happened after I saved everything damnit! An absolute gorgeous picture ripe with details that I could study for days. Really really like this and that last bit gawd did it tug at my heartstrings. Great picture, such great talent.

Yes. It's a wraparound tattoo of Garrus's facial markings.

I wonder if Shepard would deliberately make a mound of seashells for Mordin Q_Q

ghostfire Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I'm sure she would, though her experiments (probably performed while slightly intoxicated) would be limited to "which one of these can smash the other without itself being smashed". :lol:

I know there are always time and money limitations with video games, but it seems that a brief glimpse of the hoped-for happy life (or hallucinatory afterlife) for at least the multi-game love interests would have been beautiful and extremely touching.

Yea... I would've preferred the DAO ending... you know, the slide-shows and words and everything. It doesn't need to be filled with cutscenes that takes months to make, I would be happy enough if they just gave me a simple slide-show with my LI :'( Oh garrus...

Your pieces are great, though. The detail instills new hope in me for ME3. All of the fans do, really.

IriquoisP Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
Yeah, the process of writing and peer review by all the writers was totally bypassed in the ending.

Just the sheer number of promises to LI's, old friends, and best buddies by Shepard that he/she would pull through... it's all totally snuffed by that ending.

John Dombrow wrote Mordin in ME3 I believe. He also did Garrus and the Tuchanka arc and in ME2 did Overlord (at least).

He is also working on the ending dlc so we can hope.

Great work once again, one of my all time favorites. :D

Just wondering, will you be doing any other comics in the future? I noticed you're currently working on some other pairings (ShepxTali and ShepxLiara I think), but will there be any more humorous comics like the ME3 ending reactions? (Because that was hilarious lol)

If I could work about a thousand times faster, I'd love to be doing a full-on webcomic. I wish I could kickstarter myself so I could just sit back and work. XD
