"By the homeworld I hope to see one day"
Tali has always been one of my favorite characters since the first game. so you can kinda tell how disappointed i was with the whole stock photo thing. like mentioned in my sketch, i drew her in a more fitting setting with some tiny changes.
looking back at the artbooks of Mass Effect, they had a lot of interesting ideas for Tali's (quarian) face. for this piece i just blended some of the concepts i thought would work well with the face Bioware shows in the photo. she doesn't look much alien like i'd like her to be, but i think she came out complementing both the concept art and final product.
ha, i just realized that this picture wouldn't make much sense either. unless Shepard has a built-in camera on her omni-tool or something. oh well.
