Garrus Vakarian (MY HUSBANDO) by Shattered-Earth Garrus Vakarian (MY HUSBANDO) by Shattered-Earth
Woh a poster for this years con circuit of my favorite alien, Garrrrruuuuusssssss! I've been aching to do a print of him and i've been wanting to do a faux-water color thing too so finally, combined, my lurff

This was done completely in photoshop I had a few people asking me during live stream. I heard ArtRage has a good water color tool but it looks.. too close to watercolor LOL. I specifically don't use water colors this way IRL because i can't control them very well, and i'm all about CONTROL. It was funny to use such a precise painting program to imitate something that is very much defined by it's lack of precision and happy accidents. It was interesting to "make" happy accidents out of no accidents at all.

A very interesting exercise :O I have a sped up video of how i did the effect (the background in this video) here: [link]

Anyway, Garrus will be a print at Sakuracon this march, and then Acen and AX and a bunch more (Check my journal if you wan it !), hope to meet more garrus fangirls (and boys lol) WHEEEEEEE

More ME3 workkk

Citadel space better allow either polygamous marriage or harems, because this is gorgeous and I too freaking love Garrus to death.

I will need to buy one of these for my fiance, Garrus is his fave character and I always jokingly ask if that's his waifu (he HATES that word). 8D It really looks like you used watercolors, could have fooled me if you didn't mentioned you actually made this in photoshop! lol

Shattered-Earth Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013   Digital Artist
lmao just change it to husbando and see how he likes that instead ;D does he play femshep or maleshep?

and yessss >:3 i hate water colors so i'm glad i figured this out LOL

shiimapan Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I think he might throw me out of the apartment if I did that, haha! He plays maleshep! ;) One of my friends bought me a copy of the first game for Christmas, so I need to get started on that as soon as I finish my Fallout: New Vegas playthrough! ^^;

Hey it looks good! Hopefully it's something you'll continue to do in the future! =p

:iconshattered-earth:
Shattered-Earth Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013   Digital Artist
omg yes please start and please play as fem shep, your fiance will be SO JEALOUS cause her voice acting is like 10x better than maleshep LOLLL

i'm so bummed i never finished new vegas because of an annoying glitch, and i tried to restart it a few months ago but it just crashed so much, even in the first town @_@. maybe i'll try again once i get sick of binding of isaac..
