The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) transits the Philippine Sea during a bilateral exercise with the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force. The ship and it’s carrier strike group are operating as part of the U.S. 7th Fleet under the U.S. 3rd Fleet Forward operating concept, which provides additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander and leverages the capabilities of both 3rd and 7th Fleets.

Hey all!  Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I’ve had my head down with some projects that hopefully I’ll be able to talk more about soon!

In the mean-time, with the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda bearing down on us, I thought I would make a quick post collecting some of my Mass Effect related art!

If you enjoy any of these, please take a quick gander at my Society 6 Shop  and see if there are any you would like to pick up!  The support is incredibly appreciated!

The tribal delegation visiting Sheikh Abdelraouf al-Dhahab was still talking in the very early hours of the morning last Sunday when his nephew, Abdullah, noticed strangers approaching on foot across the rocky, inhospitable terrain of central Yemen.

“Who are you?” Abdullah called out into the night. “Who are you?”

The men shot him dead.

Startled by the gunfire, the Dhahab family scrambled to take up its own weapons and defend its house.

According to accounts by locals, this was the way the battle began with U.S. special operations forces and some of their allies, which would unfold over several hours on the ground — and end with an aerial bombardment.

By dawn, one American sailor was dead and three other service members were injured. Locals say numerous civilians, including women and nine children, were among the Yemenis killed. The U.S. military has opened an investigation, and U.S. military officials tell NPR that civilians were indeed among the victims.

Taken together, claims and counterclaims from the U.S. military and local residents described a chaotic operation, one that drew sharp criticism from Yemeni officials who usually support the U.S. The aftermath of the raid shows the potential dangers if the U.S. military relaxes its current restrictions about using force and protecting civilians, which President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to review.

And they’re done! They’re not 100% accurate, but hey I haven’t worked with Illustrator in a long time, this is as accurate as I could get with these.

Also don’t repost/claim as your own (why do you think I slapped my name on those). I’ve worked 3 hours on them.
But I might release .png files in gray colors for people who want to use them in edits, perhaps. If you peeps would be interested that is.

OK, so I’m REALLY bad at driving the Nomad. But also, the wife and I are coming out of our winter hibernation modes with a little bit of extra fluff, so while I was initially worried that Andromeda would have me spending too much time on the couch, I devised a solution! For every hour we play Mass Effect, we have to get up and do 30 reps of an exercise. I already feel much better, especially after I lost a week of training from pulling my butt muscle.

I do wish more comments from your companions about your class happened, like I know it was because we can switch up our profiles whenever we want but maybe they could have made it that the first profile you pick at the beginning is the one mentioned?

It’s a little immersion breaking when Cora goes on about how hard life is as a biotic or when Jaal mentions only Cora and Peebee having it in conversation and my very Adept biotic god Ryder is standing right there.

The Cora conversations definitely. Or when Liam at the beginning is asking her in surprise that she’s a biotic even though he’s watched Ryder Charge across the battlefield for the last 15 min.
