Shepard by k-atrina Shepard by k-atrina
A little Mass Effect fan art between studying never hurt anybody.

This is my Shepard. Reference used.

I dunno what it is that makes this Shepard so awesome-looking but she's so unique. Your style is whimsical in an original way, I'm hooked by the way!
It's totally okay if you say no, but would I be able to use this image for my Mass Effect blog as the avatar or sidebar image (with full credit to you of course)? (

Nihonnoyokai Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
That should have been a default version of fem Shepard!

I love it !
Really beautiful ! A good version of femshep that I have never seen ;)
TreeWyrm Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
This is one of the most piercing pieces I've seen of FemShep. Truly it's amazing - the worry painted on her face but holding down the calm, somehow the weight of responsibility hangs heavy on her shoulders - I don't know if that's the way you've done the lighting and the colour choices. Either way I absolutely love this piece and have done since the moment I laid eyes on it.

I'm first admin to a Facebook fanpage called Mass Effect Female Shepard. Your picture here has been widely appreciated there, and at some point I or another admin must have uploaded it to one of our albums. It has received much love, and thankfully whoever uploaded it included reference to you as artist and a link to your original here so that fans could visit your works here. However, in retrospect it would have been nicer to ask permission first, and nowadays I always do this. I apologise for the fact that we did. So... I wanted to let you know we loved your work very much and shared it, and to ask if it's OK that we keep it in our album: [link]

If you're on Facebook and happen to be browsing any of our albums, you'll spot that there are some photos that have no information posted in the caption at all. :( This is because before I became admin, I think a lot of pictures were uploaded by a former admin who couldn't be bothered with such stuff. >:L So if you *know* who did one without a caption, please let me know who the artist is so I can a) apologise to them and b) correct the error by putting reference material in the caption.

iralima Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012
I.... wow. She looks so much like my primary Shepard it took me a few seconds to realize this is not in fact the default femShep face and you must've just made one incredibly similar.

For all that you used a reference, I happen to know for a fact that the game's engine cannot do facial expressions or emotion this well, so it's amazing work on your part.

So, thank you, for a really awesome picture (of what's almost my Shepard) that shows more personality than a screenshot ever could.

Shepard, The daughter of Dr. Chawkas?

Looks great, tough!

Lovely study :D
Volferine Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012
She is so similar to my Shep. Amazing :)

I like it
theant4 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Looks great! I love all the shadows and her facial expression :D

And I'm rather curious as to who you used for reference -- I've been trying to figure out a good reference, and it appears that our FemSheps have a rather similar facial structure...
k-atrina Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012   Digital Artist
Thanks so much! For reference, I just used a screenshot of my Shepard. xD

lolslikemuttley Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012
Gorgeous. I love the muted colours, the tones, the shadows. Her eyes really emote. So lovely I can't stop staring this.

This picture of Shepard is just amazing.
It just caught exactly the face and the feeling I have with my version of her. I love it.
firekiwifly Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012
Holy crap! Your Shepard looks just like my Shep only with a different hair style! I would post a picture, but sadly I don't use deviantart enough to know how to do that :(

But anyway, this is such an awesome job! She's beautiful!
firekiwifly Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012
Didn't know what the emoticon things were on the side until I posted. Felt I needed to make up the mistake by adding a "love" emoticon :)

That's a nice looking Shepard. What's the face code for her?

Se looks SO MUCH like my femshep!

BarakIII Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012
I love this, it's very close to how I imagine my fem Shep to look like. :)
Indigum Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
What's weird is that I recognized her even before I saw the armor. No matter how you customize Shepard, there's something recognizable about his/her face.

I love this picture. It looks like it was based on a photo, rather than a screenshot.

This. Is. Gorgeous.
