Your charcoal work is outstanding.  It's official - you have a new fan! (and of course, we all love Turians!)

Is the person who commissioned this writing a story? Because I want to see what happens to Saren and Nihlus next(Saren especially). Great work, anyway.

Amazing as always! Your work always such an incredible sense of story and depth...not to mention an abundance of talent. I kove the juxtaposition between the war-ravaged landscape and the tenderness between Nihlus and Saren.

Fantastic! :clap:

Awww, Nihlus and Saren. Those Saren and Nihlus feelings, yessir. Is there one of those cutesy mashup couple names for them when we refer to them in a couples kind of way? Naren? Sihlus? Kryterius? Actually damn that last one's badass I need to make that a thing. :iconimthinkingplz:

Also as ever this is lovely. I will never get over those itty bitty charcoal details. Saren's cheek fringe, aw man! :la:

Wow I love all he details everywhere. Soo crazy. I don't know why, but I've always loved turian legs, so those legs look very cool when they're all bent. Legs :heart: and the head bump is a nice touch.

Thanks! and yeah, turian legs are good fun, though I think I enjoy drawing their pointy head bits just slightly more.

I wouldn't have minded Nihulus being more apart of the ME universe, too bad he died at the beginning of the first game

Yeah, Nihlus and Saren were both great characters. It would have been awesome if Saren hadn't died but had gone crazy, and they locked him up in some institution somewhere. I'd love to visit crazy Saren =D

Well even if he hadn't died but had gone crazy, how would the Reaper tech installed into his body play out? That was how Sovereign took over his corpse :I

Oh I know. There's no way it would actually work in the mythology. But damn, a mass effect Arkham Asylum type deal. I'd have loved that =D

I have mixed feeling about Saren :I

On one hand, he was a great villian for the game...The only villian you really get to fight...One the other hand, he pissed me off a good couple of times and not just in the game, but in the book too

I like stories in art as well, but tragically, it was the story element in my art that prevented me from getting into any post graduate programs. There's no room for illustrators in the art world apparently. D:

Bah! Ridiculous! Their loss, though sadly they will probably never realize it. Well, I for one will hold out hope that an artist of your caliber will get your due and end up taking OVER the art world, because your work is spectacular! Long live stories in art! (And your writing is not too shabby, either! ;) You're only one of my favourite writers; no big deal! :worship:) Seriously, you're the whole package. Okay, gushing over, before this becomes awkward and uncomfortable. :D
