Mass Effect - Pick up the Pieces by ghostfire Mass Effect - Pick up the Pieces by ghostfire
Even though I never played as male Shepard, I always thought of Tali as a really adorable best friend/little sister for mine. In another universe, after the reapers are gone and they return to Rannoch, she's definitely jumping into her Shepard's arms with their partially completed home in the background.

Concept drawings for this piece here:

I wish Tali could be romanced by a female Shepard as well :(

She's just so adorable <3 Especially when she has those jitters when idle.

As someone who has romanced Tali on every play through as a male Shepard, I can tell you that this is amazing. This is exactly what I always imagined she would look like.

That would've been beautiful.
Building a home with Tali. Hell, even if half of mass effect 4 were carrying stones for the home on Rannoch, I'd gladly play it.

Lovely. Love  This is the best Tali fanart out there. I love how you salvaged the bioware "design" and made it work. Amazing work with the colors and lighting.

Awesome! This piece of art inspired me to start the whole trilogy again, but with Tali as my love interest. (Spoiler --> Too bad you can not romance her in ME1.)

You went with the human Tali as opposed to the Turian-esque Tali that many people were bitching was the 'real' Tali. Kudos for the great picture.

Just picked up these games a few weeks ago, and haven't been able to put the controller down. I would've started the relation with Tali in ME1 if I had the option... this is everything I wanted to see in a visual representation of that relationship between Shepherd and Tali, and more.

Thank you for your beautiful artwork...

I love the way you created an elegant outfit for her which still consists of some of her old suit. It looks really comfortable yet true to her character. I must say this is very beautiful and is clever in the design aspects.
