Liara T'Soni - Mass Effect by whatever-kathryn Liara T'Soni - Mass Effect by whatever-kathryn
:heart: Thank you so much to everyone who faves and comments. My inbox is full everyday with amazing feedback, I don't have time to reply to everyone, but I appreciate every comment and fave. You guys are awesome <3 :heart:

Please download for close up (you can see her scales!) :la:

:bulletred:This was featured in SpawnPoint which you can see here: [link]

After finishing Mass Effect 3 I just had to do this painting of Liara. What a wonderfully intriguing character she is. Fell in love with her and obviously her amazing voice actress Ali Hillis :heart:

Done in Photoshop and took around 40+ hours to complete. I'm still quite new to digital painting so I'm aware there are many mistakes. I used a few in game references to help with the background and her armor. I also used a photo of her face model to get the expression just right.

Dedicated to all Mass Effect fans out there - Hold the line :la:!

Please also check out Garrus!

Liara and Mass Effect belong to Bioware

It took me a few tries to get the look just right.
Thanks so much for your kind words!

I would be truly honored if you would allow me the use of this pic in a video devoted to Liara and Shepard's love for each other. I guarantee your name, screen or real, in the credits. And a link back to your DA page or other homepage you prefer.
Please let me know what you think at your earliest convenience.

Of course you can!
Thanks so much for wanting to use it, and also asking my permission first. I really appreciate that.

Send me a link to your video once you've finished it ^^

I think her expression is like:'Oh, Jane, really, I got work to do-but....if you insist....I suppose I could make room for just the two of us....'
AMAZING work! I love it!:happybounce:

Love her expression here and her body language...sort of saying "are you serious, Wrex?"
