*I'll post painting close-ups and a couple progress shots of this piece on my tumblr in a few days

As it's my last painting for 2012, I wanted this picture to incorporate all of the new techniques I picked up/developed myself throughout the year

Overall it was damn challenging- but I accomplished pretty much everything I wanted to do, and I don't think I've ever painted clothes that well before, haha

Of course there are always little issues that bug me, but it's definitely done, and I hope you guys like it

Feel free to tell me what you think =)

Since finishing ME3 two weeks ago and getting my heart broken by mshenko I've been feverishly going through the internet, reading every story, looking at all the pictures and watching all the videos, just to get over it. There are a great many beautiful mshenko pictures on DA, but this is the one that I come back to every day to look at. It's so beautiful in it's dark glory. Some fanfiction writer coined the phrase of Shepard and Kaidan as a "song of war" and this reminds me of that phrase. This picture is the perfect embodiment of their love, their tragedy, their intensity, their struggle and their tenderness. 

I salute you.

So great! I love how you made their biotics flare up during such a passionate moment, it makes for a really cool effect. Also because my Shepard is a biotic too :)

I have just introduced myself to the ME universe by a recommended YouTube clip of Kaiden, I was instantly drawn to the persona then I started looking into his character and his possible love interest with Mshep.

I'm now hooked and cannot wait to start playing the trilogy, even though I have spoilt some of the content for myself I'm looking forward to the journey.

However I have to wait as I have exams and deadlines comming up in a few weeks, so for now I will keep looking at Slenko to keep me going.

I've seen many pictures on this we site but I have to say I'm specifclly drawn to this one. I think it's stunning and makes me somewhat happy and sad, sad that I could never produce something like this but happy you have for me!

I've been reading your comments and you deserve all the praise for your superb art! Now I just need to track down your larger picture which you mentioned would be in your tumbler account.

Anyway sorry for the long post, you will be my first ever Artist to follow and first ever art piece to like!

James

I'm glad you're going to play the games! I have exams coming up too, so I won't be able to draw much for a while, but I'm happy to hear that you like my work =)
