The Normandy SR-2: concept art from The Art of the Mass Effect Universe
“[…], the top two images were ideas for changes to the interior of the Normandy. We wanted to convey the feeling that it had been captured and studied by the Alliance. The red and blue color changes were to show that the ship was almost always on high alert, appropriate for the wartime setting. The bottom image was an early production painting of a saboteur or assassin breaking into Shepard’s room.”
i actually just went back through my archive because i thought this blog was older and i didn’t believe myself. that’s a lot of people in six months & it has felt like i’ve had this blog for an eternity but like ??? i’m never good with words, i’d rather just have ripley speak which is a good point. ripley has been my greatest blog, the muse i’ve connected with the most and i’ve made so many wonderful roleplay partners and i love every single follower, down to the personal’s. that’s for making this one hell of an experience and giving me a place i can go to forget the world.
