ME: Then And Now by Arkis ME: Then And Now by Arkis
Mass Effect: Then and Now.

I decided to do a quick ME art for the Club challenge "Then and Now". I only had an afternoon to work on it, and I decided to try a new style of art. Verdict? Ehh...... not thrilled. But whatever, it's done.

Anyways, the poster depicts Valyrie Shepard, my primary character. The top of the image depicts Shepard as she was being inducted as the first Human Spectre, and her opponents, Saren and the Geth.

Beneath them is Ashley Williams, who was left on Virmire, as well as the Illusive man, the Collector Base, and Shepard as she is being rebuilt by project Lazarus.

And the bottom of the image should be self explanatory to anyone who has finished the series. :D

great transition, it is a deeper representation of the mass effect series than most others.

This is very reminiscent of one of those Tarot Cards, like The World or something. Beautiful stuff!

this is very epic. every thing you did gives me a idea about this shepard in some manner. like a symbolism of what to come.

I like seeing the stages of your Shepard. That was actually one of my favorite aspects of the series, how my Shepard evolved from one game to the next.

I like all the symbolism.
