Mass Effect - A Distance Erased by ghostfire Mass Effect - A Distance Erased by ghostfire
Closeups here:


Alt. Version here:


"Then, we're going to retire somewhere warm and tropical and live off the royalties from the vids..."

If Shepard won't be granted a proper hero's death, then I'll give her a long, happy life.

The title is from Vienna Teng's "Eric's Song". It's one I listened to quite a bit while painting this piece, and, since I'm working on both a Shepard/Tali (85% complete) (edit 4/20/2012 - now finished and linked below) and a Shepard/Liara painting (10% complete), I can't help but connect the lyrics to all three relationships.

As far as Garrus's appearance - yes, I've seen the ubiquitous nude turian concept art piece. I've got the art books, though, and quarians had half a dozen facial concept sketches - none of which turned out to be what they went for. No nude (or even shirtless) turian ever appeared in the games, so I mostly worked from my own concept piece done two years ago (to the day):

Many of the pieces from this gallery are available as prints through ghostfire.net or specifically at the ghostfire market.

I just finished this game series last night for the first time (yeah yeah am I late to a party or what?). I ended up taking the destruction route so when I saw Shep draw a breath at the tail end I immediately thought, "ZOMG! Maybe they will get to retire near that beach!" I would have actually yelled it had I not been choking and sobbing.

So yeah, this art? :heart: Perfect
