Mass Effect 3 : Tali by Arkis Mass Effect 3 : Tali by Arkis
Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a nice holiday! I'm back again to kick off the new year with another poster leading up to the release of Mass Effect 3. Today, Tali'Zorah vas Normandy.

Tali and the Quarians are no strangers to the horrors of facing a machine invasion. As other races scramble to defend their homeworld's, the Quarians may wield the most potent tool for defeating the Reapers: The Migrant Fleet. However, trapped between increasingly volatile politics and a crippling immune system, the Quarians may only be moved to aid the other races of the galaxy in exchange for that which they desire most: the sanctuary of a world to call their own.

This one was fun, and I managed to knock it out pretty fast. I'll admit, I'll be glad when I'm finished with these posters, so I can move on to other things. Cursed self-imposed goals! For those of you keeping track, there are only two more races to go, although it might be a while before I get to them, as I'm currently working through a number of commissions first!
As always, comments and critiques most appreciated!

Mass Effect 3 is owned by EA and Bioware. I'm just a fan.

I LOVE TALI! But forsome reason this picture of her reminds me off Assassins Creed maybe it's the hood XD

Dude this is great.

Just for the sake of readability and overall feel, I'd either take out that text headlines (in all pieces) or make them more slim, with no textures, no volume and smaller. I don't know, the way it is now they just don't make up to the artwork which is awesome by itself. Grats on all of them anyway.

Nice, I like the details, specially the hood.

Too bad she has her eyes closed, though. She must be thinking.

This could make a good comic book cover if they ever decided to tell Tali's history.

The composition of these are just fantastic. I looked in your gallery to see if there were more, and there are, but this one is by far the best. Maybe it's Tali's character, but the word associated with her is much more appropriate, more fitting, and the lighting suits her better: enough dark to show how bleak her world is, but bright enough to reflect her hope. Wonderful work!
