On the Docks by calicoJill On the Docks by calicoJill
Decided to do some environmental practice because I usually spend so much time on characters that the backgrounds get over looked and I never improve. Then I just stuck in a previous picture of Shepard and Liara I had done and added some colour. Which is why it's kind of out of place... I mean I can't really see them making out in public like that, but hey, we can pretend it's a private dock? Eh, either way, I really like the colour in this and the perspective (Because perspective makes me want to rip my hair out and it actually turned out.) so just ignore the strange juxtaposition.

I've never seen that particular pose look so incredibly adorable. Love the whole picture.

haha, yeah, "adorable" wouldn't be the usual word for that pose :P
Thanks again!

The vanishing point got me drooling! Lol I'm a nerd when it comes to perspective ;p
I mean, a lot of folks overlook this stuff, from here alone you can insert as many NPCs as possible while retaining their correct height. And of course, you can place these two lovers anywhere in the frame and still maintain correctness.

Awesome stuff! Cheers! :w00t:

Oh, perspective makes me want to cry sometimes! This is about the only time I think I've ever gotten it right! I can only imagine my frustration trying 2 point perspective :P

That's actually a really good point, I love being able to just jam things in and having it work, mostly because I can be lazy =P

Thank you so much!

It's never as fun as drawing the characters, there should just be a background button XP thanks!

I thought this was made with Google Sketchup. Looks exactly the same. White surfaces and black lines. :p

I didn't even know what that was until now. Had to google it, but I have to say, that's a hella compliment to have it confused with actual 3d mock ups. :) Thanks!

Oh, thought they looked a bit odd compared to your usual detailed work.
Not much to say here, the lines and angles and the way the disappear in the perspective is very well executed.
I like the almost shimmery look of the material, it has that nearly clinical cleanness that the Mass Effect world has in spades.
