So while I played Mass Effect, I had a pad of post-it notes that I doodled on. I then got the bright idea to color them in Paint Tool Sai.
Things I learned:
I draw eyes way too big. WAY too big.
Skin is hard. And fuck actual skin colors.
Latex is hard.
Anatomy is hard. ;_;
Why are they all looking in the same direction..? Uugghhh
Holy crap digital art is hard. (But first big, real image down. I can only improve from here, right?)
As for those images that aren't uh, canon, I guess, I was thinking about the 'Earthborne' background, and how it played.. into the.. fan fiction I'm writing. Seriously never thought I'd say that.
Anywho, it's the only thing that I didn't have a reference for so I just made something up. I kinda like it.
Background texture thanks to Obligatory disclaimer because I totes don't own Shepard from Mass Effect.
