We'll rebuild and recover. Stand fast, stand strong, stand together.

Here Bioware let me help you with that ending there...

Ro Shepard and Kaidan Alenko are from ME3.

Artist's note: This took forever. Tried a new form of coloring that I think turned out well. Thoughts and constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks!

Medium: Wacom tablet, PSCS6
Time: 14-15 hours

The challenge with Femshep is maintaining her own dominance without sacrificing her femininity.  This is well balanced here!

I stumbled on this while looking for a new cover photo for Facebook of FemShep and Kaidan.  I just wanted to tell you that this is the best FemShep/Kaidan pic I've seen!  I LOVE that your Shep is like mine (long, dark blonde hair, except mine has grey-blue eyes), and I love that they've obviously gone through hell, but now they've found their piece of heaven.  :)  Honestly, this is the reason I will ALWAYS choose the Destroy ending--Shep lives, you know Kaidan goes to find her, and then this happens!  :)

Awesome work.  I wish I knew my @$$ from my elbow when it came to drawing on the PC.

That is the same reason I always choose destroy! Those two are meant to be! Only my Shepard has dark brown hair, otherwise perfect ;)

By all means no! It's just a very different view of Shepard, and she looks very pretty.

Perhaps the best part of this is that it's not sugary. You can see the scars and breaks, the marks that will remain. But they're still there...still breathing.
