Synthesis by efleck Synthesis by efleck
First off, I just want to be clear that this is not an attempt by me to make anyone feel bad about what ending they chose. This is just me exorcising my demons. =D

I was never able to properly explain in words why I found the synthesis option in mass effect 3 so repulsive... so, here is a picture about how I feel instead. Of course I had to do it in the most disturbing way possible. If I have to see this sort of crap in my head then I'm going to share it so we can all suffer a little, lol. Also, this will probably be the only time you see me draw babies. Ever.

Started this about five months ago, then shelved it... figured I should finish it up before I get too involved in other things. Painted in SAI and then fiddled with in CS?.

Edit: cleaned things up a little and darkened the human babe. Looks better now me thinks.

this synthesis painting got to me. I always chose that ending and now I wonder about it. If they could only go back to being the people and Asari they were...

Incredible art.. just stunning.

There is no good ending in ME, all of them are sad and controversial, and that is what makes it all so desperate.

That is both awesome and creepy at the same time. Good work.

Oh god...

Another reason not to choose Synthesis.

You know, at first glance, this is really disturbing... But then I think about the fact that the Banshees used to be Ardat -Yakshi, who can't have children, and... Suddenly, this is almost sweet. (Yes, I know, probably the OPPOSITE of what you were going for, lol.)

Each of my Shepards picked a different ending, lol. My Thane-manced Paragon picked Synthesis, my Kaidan-manced Paragade picked Control, my Garrus-manced Renegon picked Destroy, and my Tali-manced Renegade will pick Refuse.
