DENOUEMENT - Mass Effect 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku DENOUEMENT - Mass Effect 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku
Another coda tribute art for Mass Effect 3

Photoshop CS5.1 20 hours+/- Painting and Airbrushing.

:bulletwhite: I'm going for a more classic SQUARE ENIX and 'Final Fantasy X-esque' kind of feel to it. It's just a concept and idea of how I think if they were to be doing this little ending part instead of Bioware.
:bulletwhite: This is not a direct portrayal of how Shepard's finale in the game, but a poetic visualization of how she/he farewells fans in a graceful and dignified presentation.
:bulletwhite: This art should cater to the tiny part of us which accepts the 'matter of course' of Shepard's final destination.

- In game screenshots for reference
- 'Snow brush' from ~carocha:
- Will add more soon...

Shepard <3 :')
This is beautiful, brings back the tears. I really feel for Shephard's romantical interest, because they lost a hell of a partner. That's what bring on the waterworks more than anything for me when i play it.
I romanced Thane, so when Shepard died I was like Thane: "I'll meet you acrossed the sea" ShepMe: Q.Q "ok"

Ahh, it's so lovely, I might cry. ;A;
I just finished Mass Effect 3 a few days ago ...... This really takes me back to the feeling I had right at the end. I'm so sad again...... But that only shows how awesome this piece of art really is. Thank you for sharing this.
This is just amazing! Simply breath-taking. The love I have for the games is strong, but this work just grabs everything that is awesome about Shepard and the sacrifice that she did for the galaxy in the world. I always picture Shepard as a 'she', and you got her PERFECTLY. Amazing!

Although I'm already looking forward to work on few Mass Effect "4" concept artworks, deeply it feels quite not the same without Shepard, be it Broshep or femshep ^^;
Who is worthy to fill that void? ;p

Anyway awesome that you dug this piece! That said I'm quite glad myself having made this 'farewell' sort of piece, it was surely needed back then when the ending of the trilogy was still fresh.
Honestly, not having Shepard (I dig FemShep more in my case), is definitely going to be a really hard thing to do. I have no idea how they are going to be able to top their amazing trilogy. I bet it's a brand new story, with new characters and the returning cast, given that your save will also affect the game from what I've heard. ;)

I just can hear the song at the end of the game. Amazing work.
