City Lights and Asari Sights
Got this idea at random while watching Oblivion, specifically the scene near the beginning right before the pool sequence. I freaking love that movie, have a few ideas on recreating some of the more pivotal moments as Mass Effect artwork.

So here, Liara is giving you the eyes. You going to leave her alone? ;)

Alternate version on Tumblr, and since a few of you seemed to appreciate having the full size alternate available here as Premium Content, we're doing that again. It's really appreciated you guys, I'm not in this for the money but it's awesome that a few peeps are willing to toss me a few bucks.

Thanks for looking!

Blueberries and Creme

This piece has been sitting in my output folder for literally months and I have no idea why. I completed the editing a full 8 weeks after it was finished and then it’s been sitting in the project drive since.

Anyways, I enjoy these two as a couple, no idea why but I have a feeling it’s the luxurious blue-on-blue gal action. :lol: Also this is using the new eyes in the Mass Effect model and they just look so great.

So, yeah. Midna and Liara up to no good...someone should probably stop em... ;)

Alternate version on Tumblr. ;)

Hey all, the website I've been working on is just about ready, I'm testing a few more things before it goes live. I'm really excited!

With that in mind, I need five suggestions to go on the first round of the suggestion board for public voting. As I said earlier there will be no registration required to use this, just click whichever you like and your vote is logged.

So, shoot! If I don't get enough I'll put some of my own ideas up there but what fun is that? This is supposed to be for requests and ideas from my fans, so I'd prefer to start with ideas and requests from my fans!



I felt the need to edit this because NO SUGGESTIONS!? Really!? Usually you guys are overflowing with ideas. I have a feeling a lot of you didn't read past the title. :D ;P
Zelda in the Ruins
Another solo Zelda pic! You guys usually seem to enjoy those. Got this idea looking at my tumblr feed the other night, found something similar with a character from Mario Bros. Honestly can't find it again to link to it so that's a shame, but in any case, hope you guys enjoy this!

Pretty simple here, nothing earth shattering to share about this one. Interestingly this one had to be submitted for rendering 4 separate times, I kept missing glitches in her fingers when I sent it in and noticed it during editing. :lol:

Thanks for looking!


Wow that one was compressed to hell, sorry everyone, re-uploaded.

Heya you do RQ's?
DarklordIIID Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2015
Occasionally for friends, or if I really like the idea. Shoot.

Oh okay :T

Well I can't tell you if I like the idea if you don't send it. :) If nothing else I'll put it on the new website's request board.

"If brute force isn't working, you're not using enough."- Haha, that's a good one.

It's also true in the vast majority of cases... :lol:

I look around and see you don't post model releases. The hell, man.
This is probably going to come off as a bit rude, so apologies. It's just that I've spent uncountable days hunting for models for things that nobody ever bothers with, and the only ones I find, the author refuses to release. This is just the icing on the frustration-cake for me.

If you really don't want other people to make garbage out of them, you could release some of the models for "just messing around" with a caveat that others cannot use said models in their own works without prior permission. "Terms of Use". It won't STOP people, but it'll trim some of them out, and other users who recognized your work could then call them out on it.

You don't think I have those same frustrations? It took months for me to find a rip of ANY Brawl models of usable quality. After that, it's several days worth of reverse and re-engineering to make them work in my 3D app. After that, then I have to actually come up with the poses and post what you see here. Any given picture is the culmination of weeks worth of effort, and the constant frustration you're complaining about here over the course of many, many years.

For the record, I don't distribute my highly modified models, no, but I regularly send out the harder to find raw ones I've found elsewhere. I would've happily done so for you too until you elected to, instead of sending me a note with an email address respectfully requesting a few of those harder to find ones, you decided to post a two paragraph rant on my profile shouting me down for refusing to give away my hard work because...logic?

As to your idea of controlled distribution, I can't even stop people from stealing my artwork, what in the world could I hope to do to stop people using the models? As I said above I have no issue helping out fellow creators by sending them the crap that I had to start with, that's fine, it's not mine to pretend ownership of and I accept that. The only ones I deadpan refuse to redistribute are the nudes and various custom ones unless I'm talking to someone I know and trust.

So you've simultaneously managed to reinforce my policy of non-distribution while earning yourself a permanent seat on my blacklist for distribution, which by the way now has only one member, you. And you did this whining on my page about stresses and frustrations I know all too well, only instead of bitching on other deviant's pages about it, I was out there eye-scanning seedy ass websites until the wee hours of the morning tracking them down. Good job.

What do you think of the art design known as TimmStyle?
DarklordIIID Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2015
On the real: Who are you? Occasionally you post random crap on my mature works, and now you're on my page asking about art styles when you know damn well I've barely ever drawn.

Why don't you find something to do?
