Mass Effect 3 - Mordin Solus by patryk-garrett Mass Effect 3 - Mordin Solus by patryk-garrett
Personal art of Mass Effect.
The eight picture featuring Mordin Solus

The image presents the everybody's favourite Salarian scientist examining some sort of glowing liquid within a testing tube. The things that I payed the biggest attention to in this piece were the face details and an attempt to render the reflections coming from the enivorment on his armor so I looked for references like shining car body, SW troops, laboratory tools and robots etc (still think I could have done it better though ). The background itself is a result of playing around with different blending modes, some textures, soft and air brushes.

The first concept actually included Mordin holding Shepard's fish and doing some experiments on it. The other one showed a Mordin brewing the moonishine but I resigned from doing them. :)

No photo tracing or 3D models were used here. Only some small elements of the background and tube were overpainted. I also used the ME2 screenshots as references for Mordin's face, arms and armor. The original size is A4 with 300dpi. This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.

If you don't feel the tap of a Bioware exec on your shoulder for some artwork in ME4 (or whatever they'll call it) you sir, have been cheated.  I can hear that manic genius right now, "HM, unpredicted results, must re-analyze input data..."
