Stolen Moments - Commission by efleck Stolen Moments - Commission by efleck
"It's late. Just got up for some water. You're still asleep. Wanted to say how beautiful I think you are. Love G"

From the ME3 Datapad App

A commission for :iconkatlinegrey:. Hope you like it!

11x14, charcoal. Unfortunately the scan doesn't quite capture the tonal range in the drawing. It's too bad. Makes the gradient look harsh in place. Ah well... it is what it is.

Finished this just in time to catch my plane =D

Aaaaaand I'm in love with Garrus all over again. 

Seriously though, the detail is amazing, the anatomy is perfect, and the expression is PRICELESS.

Hey, how did you manage to make Garrus look so alien and at the same time so... well, human? Hum, I guess I'm assuming he can't have feelings because he's not human, or to put it even worse, I'm assuming only humans have feelings... Grrr, I'm making a mess here. Sorry. What I wanted to say is, this is beautiful. Soulful, was the word I was looking for. I can totally imagine this happening beyond what Bioware choose to tell us. Thank you for sharing this great piece! :+favlove:

Awww, I love this one! It's so emotional, I love the way his face looks like, there is so much love in his eyes. Maybe there is something wrong with me but that's what I can see looking at this piece. Marvellous.

Oh....my.....ghaaaad :wow:
I don't even know where to start...there are seriously no words that can do this justice! :faint::drool::faint:
It's the most beautiful Shepard I have ever seen. I want her in my game, damn it! Poor Garrus, no wonder he finds it hard to keep it together around her :love: and the expression on his face...so sweet. It's heart melting.
I don't know how you do it but the characters in your drownings always look so real, so alive! I could never tell this was taken from the video game if not for Garrus being well Garrus, alien and all. Drooling all over my screen again!
Thank you for sharing the results of your amazing talent :worship::blowkiss::worship:

This has to be my favorite Garrus/Shepard among all the Internet.

I'm just completely in love with how you drew Shepard. I just wish my women were half as good as yours

I took me a long time to be able to draw people, so don't sell yourself short! What you can do with markers is amazing! Put a marker in my hand and I turn into an eight year old girl who can only draw flowers, suns and clouds :XD:

This piece makes me feel all fuzzy inside. If it had background music (no, not the one he brings to Shepard's cabin), it could move me to tears. His expression is so soft. Plus, I have a fondness for this type of depiction of couples. Not the "hot" ones, not the stories where the couple has a lot of misunderstandings before they admit their feelings or that sort of thing. Just these small affectionate moments. And of course, your skill is exceptional. The atmosphere couldn't be conveyed to me so easily otherwise, but everything about this picture is beautiful.

Why have I not commented on this masterpiece? It's been sitting in my inbox for awhile now and somehow I never commented. First off Datapad App oh my gosh!!! :love: Yes I admit one of the reasons for playing ME3 again was so I could receive mail from everyone. :giggle: I adore Garrus' expression here because he looks just so tender. All those tiny details on him look amazing and contrast well with the smooth texture everywhere else. Shepard looks so peaceful.

Hmm I've always wondered how you scan your 11x14 pieces. Do you go to a store to have them scanned or you somehow own a large scanner?

It's probably better that you didn't comment on this when it first came out because I was away... not I have all these unanswered comments, but it seems too late to respond to them all :(

But in regards to the scanning, I have a small, old, crap scanner at home, which i use in an emergency, but generally I use the legal sized scanner we have at work. I still have to stitch the images together in photoshop. Usually a scannr larger than 9x12 is over $1000... BUT, last night I found an 11x14 scanner for only $250. I'm going to ask for it for xmas and maybe the boyfriend will be feeling generous. I just hope the scan quality isn't crap.

Haha, putting your work scanners to good use? Yeah I wish there was some larger sized scanners that were cheaper. it would make scanning artwork and sketches a lot easier.

Really fantastic shading. I'm a crap artist myself, but charcoal was the only thing I could ever get to work for me in any sense of the word, so I have an affection for charcoal pieces. This is really really lovely - love the details of his plates, and her sleeping face is fantastic.
