New to the site.
I didn't realize how many people out there are inspired by the mass effect series. For what it is worth the story behind these characters from a glance is what makes the world live on.
Now that is a delightful piece of work. Almost reminds me of a Tolkien-based painting I saw once - the ancestral Elves waking up for the first time after their creation, near a big lake and under a starry sky, looking around at the world they find themselves living in. There's an innocence here that makes me really wonder what the asari were like before the Protheans came along and meddled with them.
Composition, coloring, all of it is really superb work. Thank you for sharing this!
Now that that's over, I really like your picture. The contrast of the asari being illuminated by the bioluminescent plants and their own photophores fills me with a sense or wonder. These are ancient people looking out over their world and up at the stars and being struck with awe at the mystery and size of it. Reminds me a lot of the awe the Mass Effect series filled me with when starting up the first game for the first time.
Yeah, Mass Effect lore is great - when Bioware isn't trampling all over it with retcons and nonsense.
This is so awesome! Love the ambiance around both the asari here, really lovely lighting as well.
