Creation of John Shepard by Sorceress-Nadira Creation of John 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...
-----------------------
So...
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! Since John Shepard already has a LOT of LI's, there's only Kasumi, who came to the picture as "unofficial" LI. That's why she's not looking at Shep at all.
On the original painting, angels are much smaller than God (depicted by Ashley), but when I tried that it just... looked silly. So they're all (almost) the same sized.
FemShep version is here.

I wanted to thank all the people, who are painfully rigging models from Mass Effect:
o0Crofty0o (for Kasumi, Jack, Miranda)
PabloPicasso (for Tali)
*SumireHaikuXNA (for bodies of Kelly and Esteban - they're not full models!)
~Goha7777 (for Ashley, Kaidan, John Shepard)
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?

Personally my male Shepard always romanced Kaidan. He was the little spoon c: heheh Love this by the way! My bro always romanced Either Jack, Tali or Liara, but he didn't know about Kasumi until I got the DLC and, I have to say, she was so awesome and I wouldn't have minded romancing her.

I wouldn't know, but I would surmise that she would stumble over her words. I liked the ending where she ended up with Garrus. She's saaaasssy!

Oh, she is ^.^ I was really happy to discover her and Garrus end up together if neither is romanced :) It has never happened to me, since my femShep always romances Garrus... but still, I'm happy for the two of them :)

You can save her and all the other crew members, if You go to Omega Relay instantly after they're kidnapped. :)

Awww, I'm afraid I cannot do this :) BioWare doesn't seem to mind me posting pictures, but earning cash would be a totally different thing ;)
(Although, You can download the full picture from dA and maybe try and make the sweatshirt Yourself? ;) )

A gay version with Cortez reaching his finger to Shepard would be nice.

Looks to me like Kasumi wants to get on some Jack action there. All the other characters' provocative faces are hilarious. Particularly Cortez's.
