Shepard and Tali by AdamWithers Shepard and Tali by AdamWithers
Shep & Tali commission from Heroes Con 2012; Copic marker, ink, white paint pen.

I'm really happy to be getting so many Mass Effect commissions at cons. I love drawing these characters, even if all the detail in their danged sci-fi outfits and guns takes SO MUCH TIME to do! :shakefist:

I've done Tali so much I think I'm really starting to get the hang of her. Though I do find it hard to think up compositions for her that don't put a fair bit of emphasis on her, eh, posterior. I suspect this image may become fodder for the "Jiggly Quarian Bum-Bums" thread that honest to god exists on the Bioware ME3 Forums.

I am both ecstatic and bemused that such a thread exists. :D

"Jiggly Quarian Bum-Bums"?
Sounds like a Fornax article.

*SPOILERS*

At first I was trying to romance Williams, until a friend showed me these two, and I immediately decided I Liked it better.  The issue being I had been trying to romance Ashley for a while, that is, until she gave her life.  So now I can romance Tali freely.  Reminds me of a song.

"I can see Tali now, Ashley is gone!" :sing:

And about the "Jiggly Quaraian Bum-Bums", thanks but no thanks.  Jiggly Quarian bosoms on the other hand...:D

I did a Tali romance, but I like that she and Garrus get together if you don't choose either of them. And I prefer Ashley, I think, so I gets my Ash and Garrus and Tali can have an unbelievably adorable relationship together. Everybody wins.

Different strokes different folks.  I hadn't considered Tali/Garrus and I don't really like it, but to each their own.

Awesome colours! Just one thing, though: Funnily enough, Tali is about the same height as Shepard.

Ha! Nah, the internet's fine. I've done art exhibits and they're nice and all, but it's such a pretentious scene. The public isn't into this kind of stuff enough and the people who are won't be searching art exhibits to find it.

But I really appreciate the sentiment! Very nice of you to say. :)

I'd say I'm to blame for the whole "jiggly quarian bumbum" thing. I mean, how many did I post back in the day? It's very possible that thread would have died out wwithout me.

My only real regret? NEEDS MOAR MALES.

Blame Bioware. Never enough gender diversity in the alien species. Be thankful that at least Quarians got a few notable male and female characters - they could have been the Turians. Or the Krogan, where you never get to really see what females look like anyway. :shrug:

But hell, Kal'Reegar is badass enough for a thousand Quarian men!

That Kal'Reegar is. Trying to take on an entire geth strike force with only a missile and a suit puncture. Not to mention the geth... Darn it the name escapes me, but that geth walker/tank.

Human males turn into Husks; if Quarian ass is in the vicinity, Husks turn into Jacobs.

Your skill with Tali art is commendable and never, ever skimp on the jiggly bums!

Seriously though, this is simply wonderful. It's vibrant, full of character and the patterns and texturing really is top-notch.

Fantastic work!
