:sigh: I'm going to have to take a crack at Dragon Age now, aren't I?

EDIT: Okay, thanks for the feedback, everyone, I've fixed the whole "Shepherd's face" issue to the best of my admittedly feeble abilities.:salute:

EDIT 2: I will do a "FemShep/Kaiden lives" variant at some point in the future. Just not right now... feeling like I've had my fill of Mass Effect for the moment...

Mass Effect Trilogy;

First of all, I have to start off by saying amazing work. I am sure this took lots of painstaking attention to detail to get this looking as awesome as it does. So definitely do continue to do more, and yes, even take that crack at Dragon Age if you feel up to it.

In regards critique though, I would recommend one major thing. Try not to let your shading and darkening get a way from you. It seems like in some of the darker tones of the piece, the saturation is low and so some of the detail is lost.

I would also suggest perhaps taking a look at Shepards facial design. I know some people like to break from the norm and draw the Shep differently than the ingame and promo art represents, and that is cool. But if you are going to go for that Sheppard, it is good to keep it as close as possible.

On a side note, but somewhat related, perhaps we could get a FemShep version as well? I know the fans love FemShep possibly even more than MaleShep. Just a thought.

But finally, I just want to reiterate what I said at the beginning. Amazing work. Just beautiful and surreal. I can't praise it enough. But do continue to improve your work. Even if it isn't in the areas I suggested, always work to make your hand, eye, and mind better. :)

Ok this is for all three covers.
I have taken a look at all three individual covers, and I have to say: These are FANTASTIC. Beautiful adaptations of all the characters, superb designing, the eye is drawn just as it should be on down the line from Shepard, and you've created something that SHOULD be the covers of all three games.

Now, I've never written a critique on DA before, but you've inspired me. You've got every possible element needed in a cover. Each one is clear, it tells the story of each game beautifully, and highlights the characters that have the most impact, as well as bringing in a wonderfully tasteful element of action into the scene.

You've captured the very essence of each game perfectly, and looking at them evokes the same emotions in me that playing the games do, so much so that I got chills looking at them. Each character seems to jump out of the page and tell you their story, which is a difficult thing to accomplish, but you've done it quite well here.

All in all, excellent work, and very wonderfully executed. :)

Go for it, mate.:)

It'd be pretty depressing if the guy who has the monopoly on Struzan-inspired Mass Effect posters turned out to be me.

Let me know how they turn out.

You missed out Tali in the ME2 poster (or I just can't see her)!

Apart from that, amazing pieces of work.
