Mass Effect 3: My Shepard by ultima0chaotic Mass Effect 3: My Shepard by ultima0chaotic
EDIT: Just retouched on a few things and added the wounds and blood at the appropriate places because of injuries inflicted on by Harbinger.

Beasting Shepard, Earth-born War-hero. Fearless, loyal, relentless, unyielding and always sticking through with his principles and what he believes truly good.

I am going to miss this series immensely as I thought the entire series executed it perfectly from 1 through 3....except the ending of the third. By now many of you have probably heard everything about how bad it was and believe me I'm not too happy myself. But I'm not here to bash it.

Despite the questionable finale to the Commander Shepard saga, the ending still tugged at all the Mass Effect's fan's heart. A true testament to what Bioware has accomplished in getting the players to care so deeply for the character they chose to be and those he interacted with. I don't even really care about the shooting part of it, the story really sucked me in and I never turned back. I wish it wasn't over so soon.

Despite the controversy, in all honesty and the empty void that takes over you once you finish following Shepard to the very end, it's been a pleasure.

Fuck it hurts. It's like something in me died. I haven't blinked in 1 minute. I think I might be going through some post ME depression.

But anyway, this is him finally at peace, once again putting himself aside for everyone else. (This was the first ending I got after the first play through) Rest easy commander. It's been an honor to fight at your side.

P.S. I hope the Shepard timeline or saga isn't truly over :( Also I didn't mean to spoil it for you who viewed it. Sorry.

Heroes fall and People weep, be it friends,enemies or strangers. But don't worry, don't be sad ever, there will always be a hero to take up the mantle one day, it may not be immediately but eventually. We may have transient flesh, but our souls will see Heroes rise and fall till the end of time. Video games are the Fables of the Modern Era, they teach morals in some fashions if the developer has got the mind to entertain and leave something to your mind.

gratz, you condemnded everyone in the universe to an unending life of torment under the thrall of a god machine, stripped away their identities and minds, and probably brought about a reign of doom for every other galaxy as the forces of our own attempt to assimilate them into the group mind, forcing a peace onto them they never chose.

resistance is futile

killed yourself, to bring about a great doom for all of the universe . . . horay

Love it. Really has the feel of the game. Also I really love the way you colored the picture. I'm not really good with describing what or why I like a picture since I'm not an artist. But I know what I like.

The extended cut made me feel like Shepard succeeded instead of failed

Awww. I really love this art piece. Synthesis, looks like. This is totally just pure Commander Shepard in all his badassness. The look on his face says it all-- content with the end, knowing his sacrifice will better the future of others. Love this. Very moving. Great job. :)

this may sound odd...but what is the facecode for your Shepard? He looks what I've imagined a Shepard to look like,
