Blue Rose of Therum by DarklordIIID Blue Rose of Therum by DarklordIIID
I couldn't think of much to do for Christmas, so I came up with this as a gift to my numerous watchers who enjoy Mass Effect. :D

I've used a lot more Photoshop than usual in this one, but I'm very happy with the results. Thinking I'll have to do more of this down the road. :)

Enjoy!

I myself am a big fan of MShep/Liara T'Soni, Why? In Mass Effect 3 whose the one always checking in on Shepard? It's Liara and Garrus (Mostly Liara, At least that's how it's been for me.) ^^ Lovely picture DarklordIIID! Love the pose and lighting.

She was always a sweetheart, even in the first game when she had the awkward nerd thing going on.  It was awesome.

I agree, That's what I liked most about Liars, but the same could be said of Talk. In me2 when I romances her for the first time, I was so psyched about the playthrough for ME 3... Until Tali took a rocket to the face... That was my first playthrough too. XD

I got all the way to Rannoch in ME3 and ended it, then went back to ME2 and replayed it ALL over again. :3

I want to think you're just an unfunny person and not a total douche who found a picture and commented strictly to let me know you didn't like it. If it's the latter, please just don't reply...

*knocks head on the wall* I said, if you were a moron, don't reply...

1. "most who don't appreciate femshep/liara pairing are homophobes who cannot appreciate anything different. " - So because I haven't done any, I don't appreciate it? I've played through the entire series several times, as male and female shep, each time romancing liara. I probably know more of the differences between the plot lines than you do, and how to get the best love scenes.

2. "whereas femshep/liara fans are smarter and more opened minded people." - I love how you claim to be smarter and more open minded as you make sweeping generalizations about people you disagree with. Most people can't summarize their hypocrisy in one sentence so well, I congratulate you and commend you for your honesty.

3. "how else can you explain there's more femshep/liara fanart and fanfiction than there's maleshep/liara fanart and fanfiction?" - It's called fanservice and fav-whoring. Are you new here? Drawing girls kissing is a great way to boost your fav and pageview counts.

4. "because the majority rule and the majority says screw maleshep/liara, femshep/liara is the way to go. even jennifer hale and ali hillis endorse femshep/liara over the horrible maleshep/liara. " - I have never heard such nonsense, and even if they said anything like that, I'm sure you're twisting the meaning. How do I know that? Because you're an idiot.

5. "fuck the minority, they are a parasite that deserve nothing. " - See? Told you. This would mean something if, again, I cared what other people wanted. I do, when I'm being paid for a specific piece of work, but when it's just for my own taste, my rules, my choice.

6. " the maleshep/liara fans can whine about the lack of maleshep/liara fanart on deviantart all they want, cause they're all closed minded homophobic morons." - More sweeping generalizations from the alleged open minded majority. I invite you to look into my gallery for 1 minute, and then come back and tell me I'm homophobic, because girl/girl pictures are not small in number by any stretch.

6. "i mean how else can disagree against hot girl on alien girl action with deep romance?" - Yeah, I knew that was all it was, and this was the main reason I knew you were an idiot: BOTH of them are deep romances which I can appreciate, because they are essentially the same story. What's nice is that they diverge enough to make playing through both very worthwhile, which you could also appreciate, if you weren't hung up on the fact that they're both women. Parenthetically, the Asari are a mono-gendered species, so it isn't homosexual at all, it's cross-species, which not only is not rare in the Mass Effect canon, it's completely accepted.

In short, don't sit there trying to sell yourself as some deep thinking fan of the less traditional relationship option (especially when it's hardly out of the ordinary in the context of the game) when you're entire support of it is hung squarely on the desire of a perverted mind to see girls kiss.

Actually she's on her toe on the one foot, and Shep is holding her up at the hip. Can't see it obviously, but if you looked at the models in the editor, you'd see it. :)

Thanks!

Actually, in ME1 at least, the two are exactly the same height, so her being a little above him, added with what Darklord said, makes a lot of sense. Just my observation though.

:icondarklordiiid:
DarklordIIID Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
It's mostly technical explanation anyway. Having characters the same height isn't really noticed in a third person RPG, and it's far easier to work in the engine than varying heights.

This is unbelievably awesome. If I had one wish (and this is just personal preference, so feel free to ignore), I wish Liara wasn't doing that classic feminine leg kick thing. I always viewed the two as equals, one needing the other to survive, so I kinda reject those gender norms. Overall though, this is great work!

At the time, Liara was still in the "hardcore b*tch" phase she went through in ME2, and I severely missed the dorky, cute archiologist from the first game, hence she's a little feminine here. Were I doing this now, I'd probably go for a more sedated pose, since she swung back a bit in three to a nice even blend of badass and babe.

This is my favourite with Shepard and Liara. I have nothing against fem Shepard and liara, but for me its fem Shepard and Thane.

Thane is pretty boss, though its BS that Bioware finally came up with an awesome romance interest for femshep and he's freaking dying. X_X

I was very surprised when I was browsing my favs and I didn't find this. This is one of my fav Mass Effect fan art.

BTW, is there any chance that you can share a higher resolution shot (1600*900 or greater)? I would be grateful for ever (can't find a begging emicon here). I swear that I would never take that shot off my desktop wallpaper.

As I say in every posting, if you go to my website, [link] you can find it in the gallery there. IIRC, the high res version there for this one is 1920 X 1200, and has no watermarking. :) DeviantArt only gets low res versions with watermarks now, I'm trying to get people to visit my site.

Just amazing. There definitely needs to be more male shepherd + liara works out there. They are the perfect couple! Shepard is the tough bastard who kicks ass, but liara kind of cancels that out with her softness and innocence in a very graceful way. Great work keep it up!

Speaking of the Mako, can you imagine how chaotic it would be to have an entire armored unit of those driving around like psycho Shepard when he/she is being attacked by a Thresher?

Lol, Liara&maleshep romance, mako, wipe open spaces (not little corridors full of cover).

Basically some of the best things from ME1 that were in ME2. Great pic. Liara and Shep look amazing.
