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...

Very powerful. It's a shame she is lost. Would have enjoyed ME4 with her.

I just want them to give that women an ending she deserves. It's just not fair, man.
I don't think I ever cared so much for a bad ending of a person who didn't deserve it than I did for Mass Effect.
It's not right

Shepard <3 :')
Melschmell Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2014
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.
fico23 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2014
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!
Eddy-Shinjuku Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
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.
fico23 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014
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. ;)

truly beautiful mate.

Absolutely beautiful. It really does have a Final Fantasy X/Xiii look to it. Female Shepherd looks stunning yet gentle and the lighting looks so beautiful. Amazing work. :)
camname21 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013
Lovely effects.  Light with a touch of emotion.
hunter8906 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013
This looks amazing. The detail and the tiny shards coming off the armor... You put alot of work into this and it looks incredible.

Everytime I see a really cool art of femshep looking cute/awesome it makes me sad that all my efforts to create a passable femshep whenever I play the game has been in vain.
