Thane Portrait by efleck Thane Portrait by efleck
Wow, my first Thane drawing... if you don't count comics. He sure has a dubious nose.

I liked Thane, though I usually felt a little awkward when he'd have his flashback memories.

A commission for :icongreenbutterfly99:. Thane from Mass Effect 2. Hope you like it =D

9x12, charcoal.

Oh, I wish I had the control of charcoal like you! It's absolutely gorgeous! I have a special place in my heart for Thane. You have captured him beautifully.

Even though I didn't end up romancing Thane, I still really enjoyed his character. So tragic. Broke my heart when I told him I couldn't replace his wife. :(

Aw wow what an amazing job on the skin texture!! It looks perfect!! I agree, I was torn who to romance but in the end I had to go with Garrus becuase Thanes memories where... a little too uncomfortable!

I really did like Thane, but the memories... and then the fact that he was dying. I couldn't imagine my Shepard being able to forge ahead and focus on saving the galaxy while her lover is dying and knowing that he won't be able to enjoy victory, if there is one.

Me too, he's so lovely he really is, but it's creepy that he might suddenly slip into memories of his old partner while you where making love or something... and it would be even worse if he started talking them through... and like you say, he was dying, and that puts me off, and then that makes me feel guilty because he obviously likes Shepard and knows she's being put off by him dying... and then he has a son who has problems and he's obviously still in love with his wife and... well its all very complicated and he makes me feel guilty!

Guilt, yes, so much guilt. I adored him, but just couldn't be who he wanted me to be. So sad. I wonder if BW will take into consideration how far you took a relationship? Like if you "romanced" Thane up until a certain point if that will be referenced in the third game.

Ooh yes that would be so cool, especially Thane, he was so nice about it too when he approached me about my other relationship with Garrus although how he knows I don't know because Garrus practically lives in the gunnery! so unless Garrus went around telling everybody... -_- Apparently Jacob doesn't take it very well though! I really hope my cheating on Kaiden doesn't have a hugely bad effect... I've successfully avoided all spoilers so far! But I have a bad feeling that he probably doesn't make it! :fingerscrossed:

His mouth was tricky... getting it right without making it too pouty was definitely a challenge!

Yeah, my Shep wanted to back out of the room slowly during those flashbacks... just a little awkward for me for some reason. Still a great character though =D

The second I saw this I knew it was your work. It is incredible. Your attention to every little detail is admirable. His eyes are so vivid. I wouldn't have the patience to capture the suit's material so precisely and I am not even talking about Thane's skin, or scales if you like. We've talked earlier and since your Garrus pictures I am still using charcoal for my portraits and I just can not stop drawing. Such a contrast is hard to reach with pencil, even with a soft one. Nevertheless, you are very talented and it is joy looking close at your pictures.
