Emergency Induction Ports by OchreJelly Emergency Induction Ports by OchreJelly
An alternate version of this I whipped up last month for submission to BioWare's PAX East fanart thingie. I have no idea if it was displayed at the convention actually. But I figured I'd finally toss it up here instead of having it languish as a link elsewhere. I've done some slight editing since then.

Anyways the idea is the Normandy is in for repair and restock at some hub port, and Tali and Shep got some drinks at the bar while waiting. The title is a joke from the game. Wanted to add Garrus but I ran out of time, and I no longer feel like spending a few more hours on it just to have a terribly-drawn Garrus in it.

This is actually the first time I've drawn Commander Shepard in any form. \o/ Though I wasn't really trying to be specific, she resembles my first character (an Infiltrator) that I played and eventually ran through the series.

Also, bonus in good faith; Mass Effect 3's ending... *sniff* problematic.


Painter 9, didn't keep track of time. There are wallpaper-sized versions here for 4:3 screens, and for 16:9 screens
here. Should be easily croppable for others, however.


Artwork by me, characters copyright by BioWare. Please don't reuse or edit without permission. If you would like to display this image elsewhere, unmodified, please link back to this page and include clear credit; my name and website. Or Bubin the Elcor will hurt you, badassfully. Thank you.

Oooooooh Tali's faaaaaaaaaaaaace <3 <3 <3
First time ever someone made Tali's visor transparent enough to see her face and I reacted with a pleasently surprised "huh." instead of a dreadful "wat r u duin? staaahp!"... The atmosphere in this picture is incredibly nice and natural.

I tried to keep it as "neutral" as possible. I'm not really a fan of things that cater only to the artist's personal taste with established characters (though some of that is inevitable seeing as how I am the one drawing it.)

Opinions may change if I decided to draw her in entirety, though. \o/
