Creation of Jane Shepard by Sorceress-Nadira Creation of Jane Shepard by Sorceress-Nadira
REBLOG or FOLLOW ME on Tumblr, thank You!

EDIT: It would be nice to know if You use or repost this picture anywhere :) Let me know in the comments!
EDIT2: Since my art ended up on e-bay it's now no longer in resolution big enough to make a print of it. Seriously, people...
I was extremely honoured, when ~earendil87 approached me and asked to make a picture for the Romance DLC initiative. The idea was to reproduce a classic piece of art with Shepard and a LI. And I thought... Why not make both Shepards and all LI's? Especially those that are not a LI yet?

And that's how I chose Michaelangelo's Creation of Adam as my classic piece... I hope Master Michaelangelo will not rise from his grave to haunt me >.>

I know I'm not much of an artist, but I did my best! There are three characters on this pic that are not looking at Jane - that's because they're unofficial LI's, that I believe should be added to the official list. Ash - because why the hell Kaidan can suddenly change his orientation to bi and she cannot? Joker - because who doesn't love Joker, honestly? And James - ...because of reasons, okay?
On the original painting, angels are much smaller than God (depicted by Kaidan), but when I tried that it just... looked silly. So they're all (almost) the same sized.
MShep version is here.

I wanted to thank all the people, who are painfully rigging models from Mass Effect:
PabloPicasso (for Garrus, Thane)
*SumireHaikuXNA (for James, Jacob, bodies of Kelly and Samantha - they're not full models!)
~Goha7777 (for Ashley, Kaidan, Jane Shepard, Joker)
rexil (for Liara)
You guys are absolutely awesome!

Models were posed in XNALara and edited in Photoshop. Background was repainted from the stock picture of "Creation of Adam" found on Google.
Models and characters belong to BioWare. "Creation of Adam" is now a public property, I guess?

Heehee, thanks to the Citadel DLC, James no longer has to be looking away! :D

Really cool pic. I love how you posed them all...they all look quite in character.

I wish there had been room for Samara, Morinth, Diana, and Javik, but I understand the pic would end up WAY too crowded :P

Femshep's a lucky lady. And you did a great job on this!

Thank You! :D
At that moment Citadel DLC wasn't there yet, otherwise I'd be surely putting Javik up with the crowd too XD Unfortunately, not everyone made it to the group, partially to the lack of space... Dilemmas, dilemmas! ;)

Kaidan did not "change" to bi, he always was. Also Ashley. But after some homophobic assh*les made a fuss at FOX NEWS about that (especially Liara in the trailer) BW cut the almost completed same sex romances out of ME1 again. Files can be found (fully voiced in all european languages already - up to the scene right before they sleep with each other) in the game.

Which I admit, I didn't heard about! It makes much more sense that way, actually.
I am in no way against homosexual or bisexual characters, as long as they're carried off rationally - like Samantha Traynor or Steve Cortez were in ME3. I love them both! It's just the sheer comparison of how Kaidan turned out in ME1 and THEN in ME3, that made it look awkward to me...
