KIRA SHEPARD - Mass Effect OC Commission by Eddy-Shinjuku KIRA SHEPARD - Mass Effect OC Commission by Eddy-Shinjuku
OC Commission done for Exeter42 :iconexeter42:

Photoshop CS6: Illustration, Matte-Painting, Airbrushing & Post-processing.
Working hours: Collectively 20++ within a month

This artwork is a way to immortalize those great moments and time spent in which this video game impart in ourselves the means of adventure of exploring into the unknown. Each has their personal experiences.
My effort here is to established continuity of how Mass Effect affects you and not how it ends. So hoping that every time the client sees this artwork (perhaps having it printed for a wall poster) he'll remember every minute of all the best of times following Commander Shepard.

To create this sense of continuity I didn't want to depict any specific event in the Trilogy, nor canonically for that matter, but a 'timeless' representation.

Oooo! I really do feel the continuity in everyone's stance. There's so much potential energy in their gazes! It's like boxart or a poster, it's that solid. I can tell this is gonna stir up some great memories for your client.  <3

Great job, my friend!!~

lol haven't heard from ya for a while, same goes for myself I guess haha
Yup, a memorial for fans of the Trilogy. 
M.E. is certainly few of the titles that has really carved deeply into people's life, so it deserve to be remembered. 

Anyway, game-relatedly I'm truly anticipating AC: BL!!! I'm in the process of building a pretty beefy gaming PC rig just to play it with awesome eye-candy ;p 
I supposed you are somewhere high in the clouds achingly awaits for the release date :D

Hahaha. Yeah, school has been picking up BIG TIME. I've got a design group study internship thing to redesign a courtyard and submit things to this museum in Chicago and I'm a tutor for graphic design at my university on top of that.  All this quarter xD

Yup yup c:

YEAH! Did you see the new DLC based on the Jamaican Revolution!? It is off the HEEZY! That Adéwalé guy is a baller. And the trailer was really something. <3 www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7WcYm…

Hehe I haven't been keeping in shape :3 BUT I just drew something. I was really inspired by your textureness and so I decided to jizz textures all over my painting and now it looks like a unicorn farted all over it.

Your art is as great as ever. Actually I've been really enjoying some of your new stuff. Keep it up!

This jut... screams... so much brilliance...

I love the whole design of the piece. Like, the layout, the colouring... but, I must say, I like the touch between Cerberu, and the Alliance command. Especially Anderson. It just looks so good like that. True Navy Command.

Hey, bet you struggled with Anderson: no hair to make look awesome! xD

Well upon closer inspections there are heaps of evidence of painterly strokes and dabs, I'm just good at creating the illusion of details lol ;D
That said, the process can be streamlined by intuitive painting and less-technical execution. A properly refined illustration will take up to 40hrs, which I don't have the luxury of time.
