Mass Effect - Still Alive by Sierra713 Mass Effect - Still Alive by Sierra713
There has been N7 Day recently and I suddenly got a feeling to paint this, as a contribution for the event and as well to thank BioWare for making such epic game and trilogy.
Also, a tribute for Commander Shepard. I play femShep, Jennifer Hale's voiceacting is just too epic to not to play. Also this time I wanted to go for default femShep, although this reminds me more of my own character... because of similiar looks.
I know, there are people who don't like the ending. I was one of those few people who liked this. I never hoped for happy ending, it would be too unreal. The choices we got, were hard... To destroy the Reapers, but also murder Geth and EDI, but get Shepard to survive... Or kill Shepard and choose Synergy. I never considered to control Reapers, never. But... I liked it.
Also, after the ending many people still continue to have head-cannon.
I just wanted to paint a scene, where Shepard survived, barely standing, but never giving up. I won't tell much - it's for you to think more about it, where Shepard actually is. Maybe her love interest just found her or her crew, or maybe is she trying to move on to get to somewhere... It's up to your interpretation.
I just hope you like it. It was supposed to be finished in the same day, on November 7th... but I ironically got an issue with the game. Got the infamous 'required online pass issue' which got me devastated for the whole time... Then next day I had also to work, so no time and in the night they managed to fix it, which saved my life, ehehe. So, it's finally finished. Sorry for the delay but I hope you like it. I'm actually very pleased with this artwork, I even dare to say it's the best one I've did so far... I like it.
For BioWare - thank you. Thank you for creating such epic games, universes, stories, characters... I first got SW:KotOR when I was young - I could barely speak English... but I played... all the time. This was one of the few games which introduced me actually to the gaming world and kept me within... But Mass Effect is a blast. Thank you for giving us the chance to experience such great adventure.

I can't deal with Shepard being dead. Nope. I put frowny faces on that idea.
Her legend must continue!! *Runs off to write*
Maybe I'm too idealistic... But she's too awesome to just end here.
