Garrus by guen20 Garrus by guen20
Edit: There were several design issues that were driving me nuts with this piece and so I tweaked it a tiny bit. It seemed off balance to me so I adjusted the tilt on each "head" and added red glare to Garrus and blue to the helmet. I also added a bit more shadow here and there to make certain elements pop more. Also I gave Shepard's helmet more detail to the scratches and a bit more texture.

Ok so! This took forever lol. So much detail to draw in yeesh!:faint: But I'm satisfied that it was worth it in the end. I really wanted to do Garrus's scars justice and I think I managed fairly well. This is a mixed media of painting, airbrushing, and a lot of digital colored pencil on the detail work. No photo-manipulation or tracing. :)

The premise for this piece is after Shepard's final ground-side battle on earth she/he gets up to get beamed up but leaves her/his helmet behind. Too late to follow her through the beam Garrus sees her/his helmet, now scarred and missing large chunks, and picks it up. In the time to come after the final battle he often picks up her/his helmet and contemplates the loss of this most amazing comrade and/or lover.

I've always wanted to do Garrus ever since a dear friend :iconfyrefly12: suggested it over a year ago, but I could never quite picture it right in my head. Finally, I found the right combination ...I hope. Thanks for your patience sugar ;) and I hope you like him.

Garrus Vakarian belongs to the Mass Effect world and the talented people at Bioware.
