Garrus by AdamWithers Garrus by AdamWithers
Commission from Emerald City Con 2012; Copic marker, ink, white paint pen.

Garrus... is the man. One of the (many) things I loved about ME3 was the way they realized and capitalized in the story on how Garrus was your best friend by that point. There were so many great moments with him, made better by the fact that he and the first of my Shepards I played through with were total dude-bros together. :D

"I'm Garrus Vakarian and THIS just became my favorite spot on the Citadel!"

Don't know if you remember me or not (Snake Eyes gal-the one who you drew this amazing Garrus for) but I've been meaning to say thanks again for the sketch. I truly love this Garrus.You would be surprised how many people can't draw this awesome Turian. You really caught his serious and yet mischievous look to him. In my game he was (aside from being my boyfriend) always the one to throw out some humor in the midst of a heated shoot out. It also just seemed right for Garrus and Sheperd to get together-he was the only one who truly backed her up from the start. I was glad they allowed him to become an romance option as I totally thought he was the best from the first game....and I will admit I was running out of suicide missions to send Kaidan on, LOL.
Anyways Garrus since ECCC has been placed into a frame and now is on display proudly upon my wall.

Oh, I remember alright. Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm a big Garrus fan myself, as you maybe guessed. I created a 5th Shepard in ME2 partly just to see the romance with him (and partly because Sentinels actually looked cool this time :XD: ). It did not disappoint, and now she's one of my favorite Sheps. I have many Sheps...

Anyway, thanks again. I'm happy to know the piece is so well-liked. :highfive:

Holy balls this is amazing. ^_^ Phenomenal job!

I love that scene on the Citadel, when he said that I about peed myself I was laughing so hard. I love Garrus's relationship with Shepard. Of course, I was femShep so I had the romance on top of friendship, and it is by far my favorite romance option in those games. The way they are with each other is amazing. <3

I really liked him throughout the story, he was my boy all the way through and I barely used anyone but him and Liara as squaddies for 1 and 3.

I'm Garrus Vakarian and THIS just became my favorite spot on the Citadel!" - best line!

Love your piece my friend, I could comment on colours and such but look at him, he is just ready for action in that pose! :D

Although my first thought was, omg they took his legs :P Garrus in a war vets hospital would be sad.

That whole scene with Garrus at the Citadel was priceless. Just one of many near-perfect moments in that game that gave so much more depth to the experience.

Garrus in the war vet hospital - at least he survived. And y'know, he'd still be amazing. You don't need legs to snipe from cover. ;)

He survived in my campaign, not sure how but if any non human can be 'The Man' he can.

Garrus is pretty cool (in ME2, being the only one I've played), but jeez, you'd think he'd get his suit fixed eventually? ;P

You can get a download pack that gives him a fixed set of armor. Other than that you have to deal with it. :D

This is probably my favorite Garrus fanart thus far. Very well done, Adam.

It seems like anytime you have Garrus and Liara in your party, awesome one-liners are soon to follow.

[RE: Yahgs escaping salarian lab on Sur'Kesh]

SHEPARD: "There goes the next Shadow Broker!"
GARRUS: "I could have sworn I heard it muttering 'T'Soni' the whole time."
LIARA: "Not funny!"

Possibly because Garrus and Liara are two of the BEST squaddies ever? And perfectly designed to compliment every circumstance you could encounter? I loved having those two with me so much that it's hard playing without them and trying other characters. :D

...Easier with my a-hole run, as he was hardcore pro-Cerberus and got all the alien squadmates killed in ME2. The Normandy feels reeeeally empty in ME3.

Even Tali and Grunt. It is going to be interesting as this ME3 playthrough continues. I've felt the loss of Garrus, but haven't gotten to the Krogan or Quarian parts yet.

Garrus and Tali, they pretty much were with me all three games. And the Femshep goodbye to garrus if you romanced him, manly tears were shed.

Word. I loved Tali, but never found her that helpful on missions. Every time I had her in my party, I felt like I wished I had somebody else who was better backup than her. :D Though my Tali-mance was one of the most adorable things ever.
