Mass Effect 3 - Grunt by patryk-garrett Mass Effect 3 - Grunt by patryk-garrett
Personal art of Mass Effect.
The fifth picture featuring Grunt
I tried to catch savage/killer look in that work. As well as to introduce interesting/badass pose (which I find is quite challenging because of Krogans' unique build). It may not be the most interesting image out there but I think it kinda catches Grunts' love to fight.

Just like in Garrus' case there are elements of armor which are worn/destroyed, for instance the chest part which is smashed and therefore it doesn't produce the light.
In the first concept I planned to set Grunt on Tuchanka but being inspired by ME3 trailer I went for atmoshperic outdoor enviroment with blue tint and violent yellowish daylight. I decided to equip Grunt with IM-622 Avalanche aka "Cryo-Blaster". It is a nice "little" toy which tubes produce characteristic blue lighting that I thought would work perfectly for the piece. There are some elements of this image that I am not fully happy with (gauntlets are one of them) but I can't keep on making it forever.

No photo tracing, overpainting or 3D models were used here. However I used ME2 screenshots for references (armor elements, Grunt's face and the gun) and textured brushes. The original size is A4 with 300dpi. This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.

Stunning Picture. Amazing Work! Grunt is probably one of the coolest Characters in Mass Effect 2 and 3.

Grunt is by far one of my favourite characters in any mass effect game. Simply because he looks so cool

Dude....This is fucking badass!!! Grunt and Wrex are my top two favorites in the entire series!

Unlike most of your works, I found a flow. It wasn't easy, but his face looks a little flat. I'm wondering if looking at more of your works can cause death of badass overdose.

Grunts one of my favorite. IN Mass Effect I would ALWAYS bring Grunt with me. He just kicks ass. And might I just say how unbelievably EPIC this is?

I don't know why, but I always went "aw" when I saw Grunt. Can't say he'd be happy about that...

theinvinciblejoe Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
Hey, This is nothing short of amazing, but just a little side note, Grunt might look better holding a claymore shotgun or a Cain heavy weapon

My baby boy! Sorry I know he is suppose be all badass here but after ME2 (and then very much in ME3) I have developed a motherly affection to him...
Mevels Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012
haven't played the game much, but the Krogan is like my fav design out of the aliens in the game.

sick pose, looks like he is ready to mess someone (or more like a whole lot of people!) up

love the rendering, the shininess of everything. so good

i like how you layed out the text around it (your name etc)

makes it look very professional, like magazine/book art.

keep up the awesome work! Jealous of your skills lol ;)

I'm just gonna fave this, also did you ever think of doing a mass effect wallpaper?
cwpcreator Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012
I think it looks perfect. I know as artists we're never satisfied with our own work, so I'm glad to see you got past that and finally got to a point where you felt it was ready to be made public.
Bolton64 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012
Your work is absolutely fantastic. It really gave me a 3D feel, and you really capture the characters. Top notch work.
