Mass Effect 3 Comic-Con by patryk-garrett Mass Effect 3 Comic-Con by patryk-garrett
Mass Effect 3 Comic-Con
Teaser of the art that I sent to BioWare for the Comic-Con fan art showcase

I tried to convey the scale between the Shepard and the Reaper and build a picture which would create a sensation of looking at a still image (where you could sense the motion) which could be taken straight from the cutscene/ trailer and something that would work as an advertising poster or banner print.

Few words about the inspirations:
The concept for the lighting came from the pictures of Turbine Hall in Tate Modern Art Gallery in London. The colors scheme was “implemented” from “The Dark Knight” scenes (which were used as reference).

While you are looking at it you can listen to the song called "An Ending (Ascent)" done by the British musician Brian Eno. Just like I did when I was creating it :)). The track is a part of the record named "Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks". It was a soundtrack made for a great documentary film called "Apollo" ( later retitled to "For All Mankind".


The original size is over 4000x2250 pixels.
This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.

This is a masterpiece! I love the atmosphere, and I would love to have a solo mission with just Shep walking slowly in this manner through dark corridors prepared to strike anything that jumps at him.. such a great piece.

Oh man, I would also love a desktop background of this if at all possible. I run 2 24" monitors and it's hard to find really nice VG based dual screen wallpapers.
