INDOCTRINATION ZERO - Mass Effect 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku INDOCTRINATION ZERO - Mass Effect 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku
...the lovely Shepard wakes up from the rubble and makes her way towards the Bioware HQ as the Reapers sees her off, and a kind person as she is, she wouldn't forget to bring a gift...to the guys that thought it was a good idea to kill her off!!!...*coughBiowarecoughE.A.cough*

COMMENTs:</b>
:bulletgreen: This work's mission is to represent the collective of thousands of ME fan's feelings of anguish and despair at the manner of the ending of a great gaming saga.
What better ways to portray the main protagonist herself to deliver this message! XD

I am a big fan of this piece, fem shep looks lovely! Her eyes and omni-tool draw the attention right away. Her red hair is a good shade rather then an annoyingly bright color. My only complant is how the metal of her armor is close clinging to her crotch, because body armor doesn't really work that way. Though I have seen many other versions of this I still find this one stunning. The blurred gravel in the front of the image gives it a very dangerous feel and shep is right in the center of it where she belongs. Over all I think it's a very good piece and I hope you make more like it. (Thane maybe?)

I'll start by saying your composition is done very well, colors and shades are balanced out so our eyes are not left stuck in one area, and the subject is in focus. Great job on this.

Your painting skill and attention to detail is absolutely phenomenal. I can see you put a significant amount of effort into making this piece as realistic and accurate as possible.
Anatomy is also spot-on, you understand female anatomy well enough, and the body proportions are accurate.

My biggest issue with this piece, being a huge Mass Effect fan, is your decision to depict female Shepard half-naked with her arms, hips, upper thighs and part of her breast? thoroughly exposed. We understand that, at the end of ME3, your armor is partially destroyed. However, Shepard, regardless of gender, was not bearing this amount of skin. It's a tactical disadvantage and makes her substantially vulnerable to enemies.

Most importantly, the character is completely non-sexualized in the game. In fact, there is a huge emphasis placed on her being a highly competent soldier with absolutely no bearing placed on her gender. Thus, the fact that you chose to sexualize her while depicting her in combat really serves to degrade her as a character.

I also think the amount of reapers along with the floating rubble in the foreground you decided to paint makes the piece look a little too busy.

One suggestion I could give is to add some small details to the background (any ghost buildings? city scape? etc), and it doesn't even have to be in focus, since our focus in on Shepard and the reapers behind her. I think it would definitely enhance what you already have.

I hope this helps you out.

Basically everything aseroidz said.

Fetishizing and stripping down a character who is probably experiencing severe burns and has their armor burned onto their skin is frankly retarded and kills whatever good will I had towards the exceptional background and detail level. Sexualize Shepard all you want but it's incredibly stupid and really out-of-place in a piece like this.

Okay, glancing at a few of the thumbs, you seem fond of drawing Shepard in a fanservice-y pinup pose.

But this painting isn't a fanservice-y pinup, and she's still sexualized for no apparent reason. How is that remotely appropriate for the mood and intent of the piece?

Is that really how you draw her all the time, even when it's not pinup? Add sultry poses and strategic removal of clothing, just for the heck of it?
