Mass Effect 3 - FemShep E3 Wallpaper

Personal art of Mass Effect.

I had started to create this artwork when the GI cover appeared. It is a loose and conceptual piece in which I have been tryng some new things, I thought I would turn it into a wallpaper on the occasion of upcoming E3 :).The picture shows one possible variation of Femshep look since she is fully customizable; her facial appereance may not suit some players' preferences. The face comes from the portrait I did for practice puropses some time ago. I just used it as a base and redid it by adding some femshep face features. I had browsed the net and found some really inspirational versions of her done by other players so there are propably going to be more Femshep arts in the future.

No photo tracing or 3d models were used here. However two elements in particular were overpainted: namely the galactic map and some space parts (I used the milky way and earth photos. Both were taken from NASA's site). Traditionally bunch of in-game screenshots and some photo textures greatly helped to create this artwork.

Mass Effect - Mordin Solus

Personal art of Mass Effect.
The eight picture featuring Mordin Solus

The image presents the everybody's favourite Salarian scientist examining some sort of glowing liquid within a testing tube. The things that I payed the biggest attention to in this piece were the face details and an attempt to render the reflections coming from the enivorment on his armor so I looked for references like shining car body, SW troops, laboratory tools and robots etc (still think I could have done it better though ). The background itself is a result of playing around with different blending modes, some textures, soft and air brushes.

The first concept actually included Mordin holding Shepard's fish and doing some experiments on it. The other one showed a Mordin brewing the moonishine but I resigned from doing them. :)

No photo tracing or 3D models were used here. Only some small elements of the background and tube were overpainted. I also used the ME2 screenshots as references for Mordin's face, arms and armor. The original size is A4 with 300dpi. This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.
