Garrus and Sidonis - Afterlife by efleck Garrus and Sidonis - Afterlife by efleck
Ah finally, the finished drawing. A commission for :iconxenowriter: - an image from her series, Andromeda, of Garrus and Sidonis outside of Afterlife.

This is a scan... and well, it's bigger than the scanner's surface so I have a few blurry spots. I will probably scan it again tomorrow to fix those areas.

Anyway, 11x14, charcoal on paper... the usual.

I should mention that the BF and I argued about the ratios in this drawing... seeing as he majored in FA also. He was concerned that there was too much visual competition from Afterlife's giant hologram of soft core porn and that it took away from the main characters.... BUT I still think it works. I could go into it, but I won't.

Also... In all my years of drawing, I can honestly say I never drew fire before. So that was totally a first for me.

Ohh, I do hope you have more like this in the making. And I'm using one of your intimate Garrus and Shepard pieces for a desktop image right now. Because I had to have some gorgeous fluff to look at when I get bored. :D

I did indeed... charcoal is my medium of choice. Some might think I'm a bit of a sadist because of it... lol

I barely noticed the soft core stuff, the figures and the detail really steal the piece. But, i guess it's just what you focus on~

As a graphic design student, I can say that the hologram does not compete because the eye is more drawn to the detail you put into Garrus and Sidonis. The eye does naturally want to go to the center, but it tends to go to the more detailed area. If you had detailed the holo, he might have been right. But you didn't so. B|

Anyway, love all the detail as usual~. Seeing Garrus with one of those hats is a first, but I really really dig the coat on him. They should have stuck him in that for the romance scene with Shep!

The only thing that really took a while was that bottom left corner... just didn't know what to put there. I kept ignoring it and avoiding it. But it all came together in the end I think. =D
