FINAL HOURS - Mass Effect by Eddy-Shinjuku FINAL HOURS - Mass Effect by Eddy-Shinjuku
Shepard: "Behold my badass stubble while I stay in this cool pose in utter desolation and solitude"

Photoshop CS6: Painting, Airbrushing, Post-processing.
Working hours: A month's worth of project


I wanted a video gaming promo art look and this piece is inspired by one of the official Mass Effect 2 promo art; it's that air of desolation and forlorn that I can't quite capture with Femshep, it's as if Broshep as a character was made to bear the burden of an entire galaxy while keeping it all to himself and no one else to show it to.

Despite my many Femshep artworks, Broshep is what I played throughout the saga and I synchronized 100% with him here in this piece, hence really could sincerely express myself here in this depiction - a badass, war-fatigued Shepard that carries an intergalactic weight on his shoulders and wants this to end soon one way or another.

For the Mass Effect fans: This is the very moment on earth before he headed for the beacon, a man that all depends on.

Created a profile for the sole purpose of telling you how awesome this is. From the stubble, to the scratches on the armor, down to the dust particles in the air, this looks great.
