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.

The fact that this is charcoal floors me...I totally admire your patience with that stuff! I also love the details in the background. Ffdksafdja, I like the entire thing, basically!

Charcoal can be either very painful or very forgiving. It all depends. I apparently like to torture myself by using it to draw detailed stuff (it's because I like the really dark blacks I can get).

I'm glad you like it, and thanks for the feedback!

That's true...the few times I've used it, I do recall liking the really deep blacks it makes, being a fan of dramatic shadows and lighting.

You're quite welcome!
