Commander Shepard Doubts by Gigi-FenixPhoenix Commander Shepard Doubts by Gigi-FenixPhoenix
So, finally I did it! I've been meaning to draw Commander Shepard of the game Mass Effect for a long time, but I was daunted. It's a game I love so much, that I didn't want to screw up my tribute.

I also wanted to have Shepard in a bleak mood. ME3 is the game where Shepard starts to question herself and her ability to lead the war. So I chose to have her in her dream background, which already seems desolate and colorless. Ashes raining down and Javik's words ringing in her head. I also added some scars because, no matter what you did, in ME3 you had to embrace your renegade side.

Shepard will forever be one of my favorite characters. So thank you bioware for creating such a memorable game.

EDIT:
*I fixed the red stripped in the armor, which made the arm look weird. The arm is pressing down on her leg and tilted inwards, so the strip should move inwards as well. :)

Shepard wonders that if she DOES manage to stop the Reapers, if there will be anyone left that she has saved

Thank you! I still love that scene, where she loses the Asari homeword and she leans on the wall, utterly defeated, possibly blaming herself for the failure. Such a strong character being show in a moment of vulnerability... made her human for me.

The grays and desolation are a visual form of doubt itself. I'm finding myself speechless, unable to put to words how you've captured the feeling doubt here. I can feel the weight of it.

There's not much more can say. I'm sorry. I wish I could say more, but damn, girl. Beautifully done.

Very touching. She looks like the sadness itself in flesh.

Thank you! I always loved that the games didn't make her a perfect fictional character. Shepard was able to crumble and doubt herself, making her real. We've all been there, maybe not in comparable odds, but the attention to detail in regards to human nature was appreciated!

Yeah, you are right, definitely. I always liked that they made her very close to real people with their mistakes and failures.
