"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.

Reminds me of Saint Walker of Green Lantern.

I like it. Makes her look distinctly alien while attractive still.

good work
"unless Shepard has a built-in camera on HER omni-tool" - how did you get the scene with tali's photo?
It's quite logical that Tali is not on that photo. Do you really think that she will risk getting sick for one picture? I think she would have taken someones picture and make it look like her.(am I the only one who think that person on ingame picture looks like miranda)
