Samara and Nihlus - The Hunt by efleck Samara and Nihlus - The Hunt by efleck
So, this is one in a series of "we heard about it but never saw it" drawings for Mass Effect.

Samara tells Shepard that she chased Nihlus through the 'wilderness' of some planet. I know, I know, this planet doesn't really look all that alien, but I didn't want a crazy distracting background with all the weird plant life I could conjure.

Buy this drawing on etsy: SOLD

Moooar Nihlus! 8D
Background is fantastic. Real alien planet, truly You are great in drawing characters and backgrounds, fantastic.
Nihlus looks here like mighty warrior, ready to action. Love all details on his face, armour and gun. Samara is amazing too, she was beautiful in game, but here she is like Miss Universum. Amazing work :)

I was both shocked and enamored when I heard this story. I had a hard time picturing Nihlus just shooting some civilian like she claimed, but I could definitely see the two of them playing cat-and-mouse in the wilderness.

I miss Nihlus. It was a shame that he was around for such a short amount of time. He was pretty cute, for a Turian.

It was a shame... but thankfully we have fanart to remind us how awesome he was. It was sad though. There really hasn't been a character like him since.

Oh my god.
I remember saying you were one of the best current artists I know, seeing more of your work?
And noting that my favourite media is charcoal/graphite??
You really are the most talented artist I know. Everything you upload is just so brilliant and lifelike.

Aww thanks!
I'm hoping to get to some more charcoal drawings I have planned in the next couple of weeks... time permitting of course! =D
