mass effect original character

A quick attempt to visualize Captain Regidonis from Red Streak, better known as Jane Shepard’s infamous turian dad.

I think this ended up looking like some weird portrait of him that would hang in a school principal’s office, but… he was probably president of the damn Parent-Teacher Association on Mindoir, so. Whatever works.

Also, this is by no means a final design for his facial markings, but I like this pattern well enough for now I guess.

Whoa it’s a SKETCH DUMP! And it looks so bad…..I’m trying to design this girl and it’s the most frustrating thing ever? I don’t think I’ll be keeping her markings the same, for sure. These are not her everyday clothes, they are pajamas btw!

Hey!! This OC is open to criticism/ideas on bio as well as thoughts on what she should be named! She is -currently- about my age as of now.

NOT DEAD! again, lol…I really don’t have much time to draw for myself lately (and artblock lol. sigh)

ANYWAY! Mass Effect Andromeda’s peorder launch is in one week here, so in order to not freak out of impatience, I decided to try and draw one character a day until the launch…I’m NOT going to put that level of details everyday tho XD

anyway…Kishen, my Drell OC 8D you’ve seen him here before, if you check my ME tag he he…I should draw him more, I love drawing drells so much.

played the early release of Mass Effect Andromeda. No, it’s not the greatest game in the world, yes, the face and body rigging is almost as bad as the first few games, but I’ve also been spoiled by Naughty Dog. Honestly, once I met some of the support cast, I fell back into the game very quickly, even though the intro was somewhat lackluster.

I’m itching to figure out what the fuck is going on tho, so as long as the drive to play more is there, I rate it a good game.

I named my Ryder “Howl” on the first play through because AHAHAH it’s my name. I think as I develop his character more though, I’m renaming him Samuel. He’s an awkward walnut indeed.

Series: Part 2 of A Galaxy on Fire

Many died during the Reaper War, many lost everything, their homes, their family, their loves. Those who lived had to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. We know of the Normandy and the heroes aboard the mighty ship. This is not their story. This is a story of a soldier, no acclaims to honor his name, no great tales spoken of his heroism. He fought for earth, for his family, for his love. This is his story, his journey and his recovery from the events witnessed and experienced.

It begins Post Reaper War, referencing his experiences through flashbacks, journal entries, dreams and third person narrative.

Kara T’soni grew up hearing stories about how her father, Kara Shepard, had saved the galaxy three times. As a kid she was always getting herself into trouble for fighting with other kids - never without a good reason though. She grew up playing aliance soldier in the gardens of Thessia, showing up with a new scratch every day. She would never stop asking Liara about stories of her battles alongside Shepard, even if Liara had told them a thousand times.

Even though Kara never met her father, she’s proud of inheriting her name.

The stars always reminds her of what her father sacrificed for all life, and they always make her feel closer to Shepard.

Honestly the facial animations are a little wonky but not to the point where it’s distracting. It was easy to focus entirely on them just watching gameplay videos before but now that I’m playing the game myself it’s barely even noticeable to me. No different from my inquisitor’s teeth occasionally clipping through her mouth in dai. Annoying at times but not a big deal.

Sargent Matt Stokes was part of Vega’s team responsible for Shepard but when the Reapers arrived only Vega and Shepard made it off Earth. All Stokes has to do now is survive but he’s once more given a task he never expected and he’ll be damned if he doesn’t give it his all. Bioware owns all things Mass Effect. Stokes and OCs are all mine. This fic should be rated as mature but for some reason I can’t change it from General. You have been warned.

Have a snippet -

Tracy had disappeared while Stokes worked with Anderson but he’d had no time to worry about it. He turned as footsteps approached to see her carrying a stretcher and blankets. Rushing forward he took the bed from her hands and she sagged in relief.

‘I thought we could grab some sleep while we wait.’

Stokes placed the stretcher against the wall behind his console, bending over it to tighten a loose leg.

'Not exactly the night I had planned.’ He straightened up to find her smiling at him. 'What?’

'You have a great ass.’ She laughed as colour rushed to his face.

'Thanks,’ he grinned and moved aside so she could spread out the blankets. 'I hope you love me for more than my ass.’

'Of course,’ she slid her arms around his neck, 'I love you because you’re you, and I’m lucky you’re smart and have a great body to boot.’

He kissed the tip of her nose as he held her close, his forehead meeting hers, 'I’m glad you approve.’

She dropped her arms, slipping them around his waist and resting her head on his shoulder. She clung to him quietly and he tightened one arm around her back as his other hand slid into her hair and cradled her head. Hair tickled his nose, disturbed by his breath, as he stared out into the dark beyond the doorway. Fighting down despondency he kissed the top of her head and pulled back.

'Get some sleep, I’ll take first watch.’

'Two hours,’ she met his eyes and he nodded. 'If you don’t wake me I’ll whip your butt.’

'I might like that,’ he lifted an eyebrow and she slapped his arm.


'Two hours, okay.’

He pulled over a chair as she settled under the blankets, sitting so he could see both her and his console. It would be so easy to slide into self-pity, they were about to be parted and he couldn’t picture life without her. His chest already ached and they hadn’t said goodbye, how would he deal with watching her leave. With a sigh he brought up his omnitool, he needed to do something to stop his mind from wandering to dark places.
