Death's Ascension by XenofireX Death's Ascension by XenofireX
My third piece of 'artwork' for Mass Effect!

This image was initially supposed to be a cloudy cityscape with dull colors and the Reaper (ship) being more visible. As time went on I decided that it may look much better with a bright vibrant feel to the city itself while the Reaper (ship) retains a dark, broody and gloomy feel while still having parts that lighten the hulking monstrosity. Although I did still draw the Reaper (ship) in its entirety and it was a bit of a pity darkening and thus removing so much of it :(

As for the Tali reaper reference (yes, that's supposed to be her) I decided to switch things around a bit by changing the normal black cloak of the reaper with her unique and instantly recognizable pattern in keeping with the depressing feel. Everything else is up to your imagination :shifty: :)

This is the first time I tried adding meaning to an image through visual cues and colors so I hope I at least managed to do a bit of it :saddummy:

And finally my thanks go to everyone at the Bioware Social Network forums for the incredible inspiration and support, you guys are awesome! :iconawesomegarrusplz:

Terrific work! :la: I recognised Tali from the purple and white spiral hood design. But the Reaper is what really grabs my eye here!

Looks like that Death Vanguard (Not the ME Reaper) has their work cut-out for them.

Indeed, let's just hope the reaper and vanguard don't turn on each other :)
