SPIRITS - Mass Effect (OC Commision) by Eddy-Shinjuku SPIRITS - Mass Effect (OC Commision) by Eddy-Shinjuku
Photoshop CS5.1 Extended; 30hours+/- cumulative; Airbrushing, Painting, and Photoshop for post-processing.

Commission done for Exeter42 :iconexeter42: for his Femshep OC.
Come and send me a Note if you have your Mass Effect OC characters need for my little service.:w00t:

Original art size is about 5 times bigger than this; it bugs me a little because most of my detailing work seems to vanished in the compression. Do download it here if you want to see more details into it, it's worth 14MB of size for a single jpeg: [link] :thumbsup:

COMMENTS:
- Art's atmosphere inspired by some scenes in 'Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within'; for example like those whimsical wisps thingy flying around, tangy and purple gradient overall tone, etc. etc.

- The science and space buff, please bare with me if this planet seems unnatural and defies physics, it's just a concept and panorama distortion :nod:

- I experimented by drawing a lime green aurora amidst the tangy and orangy sky, it seems not to feel out of place though looked that way at first. ;p

- I stirred clear from that typical Mass Effect blueish light effect on this art, but I now I felt it needs that as it's somewhat visually integral. Will revise if necessary...

CREDITS:
- Bioware and EA.
- Collective of brushes from IMAGINE FX from issue 80 to 86.
- ME3 screenshots provided to me for references.
- In game screenshots for Normandy reference, and MAKO!!!!
- Few mountain (From Arizona) images for landscape reference.
- Carbon fiber patterns from DA (will update the source soon)

It's been a while I having seen this DA account of yours commenting on my works :D

BW is great, but I'm addicted to the Scorpion! Mod it to hold more ammunition and ME3 become like the good old Bomberman games, all these explosions non-stop is insane haha

I think this two are the most popular combo out of the 'pairing' fanarts of ME, though in this art I tried to focus more on the Commander and isolated her.

IMO, Shepard is always interesting is his/her 'alone time' when he/she drops of his/her guard and that 'mask' when no ones around; there we can see the glimpse of weariness and true emotions. :nod:

Thanks for your inspiration as well, especially those 'moon' music lol!
I think we've seen enough of the action~y and war stuff from ME games that something heart-warming is soo much in need. It emphasizes hope within the chaos ;D
Now that I take a long look at this finish art, it kind of amusing to see her reaction, because we know this kind of moment are rare once she get's back on soldier duty.

Ummm, you just keep getting better, don't you :)

And I love the panorama distortion. It makes it look so much more massive. The aurora is a nice touch too :)

:iconeddy-shinjuku:
Eddy-Shinjuku Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
For something that I do that used up my free time, I must honor it with the best I could pull off, that's basically it ;p

Yeah the distortion is a borrowed technique from photography and now much adapted in digital drawings; the dramatic effect of it is too alluring not to be used :nod:
The curved panorama should give the element of disorientation and a bit of vertigo, the aurora was the request and glad that it was.

Btws, you were the architect that resulted in my Mario work getting DD'ed?!
(I'm replying here because your comment got lost in the pile in the Mario comment section lol)

You're way too modest :) You're excellent at this ;)

Yeah, I love it, I've thought about drawing a bg like that with the distortion, but it's very hard to pull off, you made it look easy though :)

Well, I wasn't the one who suggested it that got it featured, but I suggested it, yes :) I submitted it right around the time all the "notes" were acting buggy though, and so I don't know if the person ever got my suggestion. I knew as soon as I saw that piece though that it was going to get a DD, it's just so awesome, so I'm glad you got one, it's very well-deserved!

And yeah I figured, you had a ton of comments on it :P

Well, there's a lot of orange planets in ME, even Tali's homeworld looks like it - this art is about exploration and Palaven is already 'discovered', so probably a planet that hasn't a lot of inhabitants and a candidate for colonization ;D

If this planet is Ranooch, so good idea for discovery. :)
