What would i do without you? by shadow-of-insanity What would i do without you? by shadow-of-insanity
Now, first off i must say that whenever i play mass effect i may have, what one may call, a small yet extremely severe crush on Garrus Vakarian.
I.. just.. can't resist.
I didn't actually like him that much in mass effect 1, he was just a bro. But he ever gradually grew on me and now i can safely call myself a one Turian kind of woman. (oh god that's cheesy)

Anyways, enough about that. I am quite happy with how this came out. I haven't been doing human anatomy for long at all, so it's a forever improving and experimental process. i mean look! a hand! i mean, a hand that actually looks like a hand! Yay!
This Shepard isn't actually anything like my in game shep, more like a sort of cross between her and myself in real life i guess. I was quite annoyed when i first started ME1 that there wasn't a longhair option. Terribly vexed.
Anyways, hope you guys enjoy.

Oh! Also! All you folks checkout this Fanfic by :iconroarkshop:
i am not a fanfic reader, at all, but after finding this by chance and deciding to give it a shot i found myself addicted. Seriously, read it dudes. Iz good. [link] Do it. DO IT I SAY!

Hand drawn, colored digitally.
all characters related to Mass effect (c) Bioware

EDIT: This work is now featured as a chapter icon for that aforementioned fanfic. Hence I am now ecstatically happy to the point that i actually felt my heart start beating again. which is a big deal actually.
I count this as the current high point of my artistic career so far (i say 'so far' with great optimism, since the term 'career' in application to myself is rather laughable. Hahaha....)
Thanks Roark.

Shep- 'I couldn't do this without you, Garrus.'
Gar- 'Sure you could. Not as stylishly, of course.' B-)
Yes, because my way of things needs to be done with a partner who is, cool but not at my level of, coolness. Damn that was lame.

Smooth Garrus, very smooth. Don't worry, you'll always be the coolest, sometimes even cooler than me (don't let that get to your head big guy).
Besides, aren't there calibrations you should be doing?
Yeah, I'll work on that.
Oh, um....about that..... Grunt thought it would be a cool Idea to poor Vodka on the Main Battery and now basically the sense of direction on the Normandy has gone to shit, So Shepard put us on shore leave, now I'm staying with my sister till the week is up. Gotta say I miss it, but I keep my sanity level at bay, because, my sister's car keeps "Breaking down"

Interesting, I didn't have Grunt pegged as a Vodka guy, i would of thought Ryncol since it's usually the number one choice for most Krogan. And i'm pretty sure that stuff can corrode anything it touches like acid. Glad to know you're keeping yourself busy though. And i hope the Normandy's navigational systems get repaired soon, they're good for, you know, navigating and stuff.
Indeed, Oh.....Ryncol.....Hope I can keep him away from that....He has a tendency of screwing things up. And thank you for the hope, we really need it. Yeah, the past month has really been a bummer for me, all of the crew actually. Tali, got an infection, I guess her mask wasn't set right, and now she's 'under the weather'. But, oh, sorry I guess I'm putting you down in the mood.

Seems you really needed the shore leave then. Tali is getting careless if she isn't sealing her helmet properly.
Just put your feet up and have a few beers mate, seems to me you just need to relax.
