A Painting of Shepard and Garrus by jht888 A Painting of Shepard and Garrus by jht888
This is a painting of Shepard and Garrus from the game Mass Effect.

This is a scene that I’ve painted that is not available anywhere on the internet, in the game or on YouTube…

and this is my storyline of the scene...

During a brief moment of silence, Shepard and Garrus are heavily outnumbered and outgunned. Garrus says to Sheppard “If for any reason we don’t make it, I just wanted to say…I lov…”
“Shut up Garrus! We’re not going to die today!” she replies back smiling to herself.



Photoshop CS5 and Wacom Bamboo
I have put a link showing some stages of the painting

If you like it and you have time please leave a comment, fav it or add me to your Watch list, I would really appreciate it so much
Thank you for taking the time to view this :bow: :happybounce:
A special thank you to :iconpaperpage: who requested this :D

Not a problem. Other things take up time. Makes time for replying short. Difficult. Piece very good. Good detail and emotion. Yes, very good. Very well done.

Thanks for your lovely comment Sam and for the update. As you can probably tell I have never played the game and I have not used a reference picture, but thanks for the link to the weapons. I'll certainly used them in my future pieces :clap: :happybounce:

I've never played the game either, but I think he is a 'friendly Alien?' and I've been told that his blood is also blue not red :giggle:

Wow. This is gorgeous. Well done.

I am going to nitpick one little thing, though, 'cause I can. Turian blood is blue, not red. :D

Thank you for showing the process, too. I love seeing the steps artists I like take. It helps me think about my own art differently.

Nearly a thousand views in under 2 days and you are the first to notice that the blood colour should be blue, thank you for noticing that (you can probably tell, I haven't played the game yet) :giggle: 
I started putting WIP's up before on my paintings as people kept thinking my portraits were photos and were skipping them, but now I put them up because people love to see how I got to the finish piece :D
Thank you so much for your beautiful comment, it put a big smile on my face :happybounce: :squee:

Honestly, I nearly skipped this picture for the same reason. It's just hard to be impressed with something that's just tracework or Photoshop filters. That has to be an odd place to be, though, where your work is so good that people don't believe you did it. Someday, maybe, my stuff will be that good. With practice.

I'm going to guess you haven't played any of the ME games, since the blue Turian blood is... a bit hard to miss at some points. :D That's one of the things people love about the game. It's got so much attention to detail. I hope you enjoy it whenever you get to it. My only suggestions would be to go into it as blindly as possible, avoiding all spoilers, and to make your choices based on your gut rather than on apparent alignment.

I'm glad my comment made you smile.

You're absolutely correct that I haven't played the game at all. This painting was a request that I had the time to do. So I watched game plays on YouTube. Found out that Garrus and Shepard where two of the most popular characters and found some romantic involvement scenes with them also. So I wanted to paint a scene that was so different and fresh to everywhere especially on DA, hence this painting.

I've really enjoyed painting this and bringing the characters to life. Thank you once again :bow:

I like that you go out of your way to ensure your paintings aren't based off of already existing material. There's something to be admired about it.

Never played Mass Effect, but I keep being told it's one of the greatest franchises out there.
