N7: Lady in Red - Mass Effect 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku N7: Lady in Red - Mass Effect 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku
Photoshop CS6: Painting, Airbrushing and Post-processing.
Working Hours: 12hrs+/-


The red blooming light that manifested behind Shepard symbolizes many aspect of her. On a physical front, it's her distinctive red hair, but aesthetically it's the luminescence of the soul, fiery passion and blood on her hands, which makes her to me the Lady in Red when the lights goes off and what left to glow in the dark are these.


Do check out my other Shepard artwork too! XD

Epically late reply but glad I could catch up with this; thanks as always! :w00t:
There is a certain degree of irony here, I'm a broshep/sheploo player since ME1 and didn't spent more than 1/4 of the game with femshep in ME3. You can say I portray her purely without any notion other factors in the game that distracts me from depicting her. I portray the very idea of her instead of what is happening in the game with her. It's hard to explain lol

Great that you like this subtle depiction of Shepard, nothing too fancy with explosions and such, just a random unseen 'off camera' moment as she checks the stats in the war room; the tiny smile should hint that progress is well :nod:

Very, very nice indeed! Your description of it, with the whole series and events that unfold around Shepherd, really actually adds a massive... something to the whole concept of it all. I've never actually looked at it like that, considering that, where I can, I will try to be more of a Paladin than I am Renegade.

Honestly, I would like to see you do something with her on The Normandy when it wore Cerberus colours. I'd honestly like to see the view and opinion in which you think Shepherd really felt when she was on board, surrounded by al the Cerberus uniforms... that'd definately be something to see.

Eddy-Shinjuku Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, the colors here is no coincidence to the Renegade/Paragon concept; certainly here her Renegade side kinds of 'come out' in the more Paragon environment of the Normandy. So she isn't perfect and carried inner scars with her ever since she was appointed as a Spectre in ME1. This includes befallen comrades that the guilt lingers in her/him. It is a befitting depiction as this takes place in the last quarter of ME3, it's were she has to put an end of all things, almost if this is a depiction of a dead person's last moment, yup very chilly to think of it.

That is an interesting imagery to depict, especially when she lets her guard down while no one else is looking (captain's cabin) with a cliche 'looking-at-face-in-the-mirror' while having such a conflicting expression. Or looking at the aquarium and then sees his/her reflection that trigggers a painful feeling inside, while the fish symbolizes his/her emotion of 'swimming around with uncertainty'.
It's deep this idea of yours, maybe a future project if time allows it.

Thanks btw, a nice chat too :D

Mhmm, it does come through that way. I like that. Its' true, no matter how hard Shepherd tries, she cannot be completely pure. She cannot be wonderfully good. And she wants to be. Honestly, it's a little saddening.

I would honestly really love that. The ideas make my mind churn with these visions on how it would look. If you did have the time, I would definately leave a critique for you on it. c:

Anytime, my friend. c:

I wanted to contrast the 'renegade' in her in this fully paragon environment in Normandy; this is to depict that she isn't perfect as she perhaps made both right and wrong decisions prior.

I found that simplicity works best - it allows the artwork to get straight to the point and portray it's essences :nod:
To make the slightest sense, it's like seeing a rainbow appearing when you spray water with the right angle of view against the sun ray. Here Shepard is soo strong within that her soul emanates reddish glow in the dark that manifested with the right amount of intense back-light that hits behind her.

Anyways, thanks for dropping by, appreacited your support and kind words, cheers! :D

Just because this is Mass Effect! I love it. I wish I knew how to take a snapshot of my female Shepard. I love the way she looks. I am currently in the midst of my third complete play through of the game. Nothing else measures up. Its the character creation and the choices! its that s never feels linear.
Love this pic.

lol Mass Effect seems to be my trump card, I can never come up with something wrong with them ;p
Perhaps it's already slipped our mind, but I remember now that M.E. was (and still is) a beast of a game combined everything from the very beginning (including DLCs), so need artworks that justifies it's achievement.
So for a guy who naturally likes games, this is a must that I put a handful amount of effort into them :w00t:

I am infatuated with fem Shep, such a great character and you really brought out some of the solitude she faces here. That's just my interpretation, she looks vigilant as always but there is almost a gloominess to it, knowing it's all coming to a close. And hey, you made you her look fantastic, so awesome work :D
