Mass Effect 3 Thane Krios by patryk-garrett Mass Effect 3 Thane Krios by patryk-garrett
Personal art of Mass Effect.
The fourth picture featuring Thane Krios


The whole image is deprived of rich colors, and is kept in a blue tint. I also included some glow and volumentric light. All this was made to emphasize Thane's personality as an assassin.

You can sense some jagged/uneven edges and little "ghosting" elements. This was done deliberately in order to give the artwork the sense of motion. An effect as if the viewer snapped a frame or paused the video and caught Thane in a position in which he is about to use his powers (just imagine him raising hand with biotics powering up).

No photo tracing, overpainting or 3d models were used here. However I used some ME screenshots and hand pic for reference. I also played around with some textures to give the Thane's cloths more realistic look. The original size is A4 with 300dpi. This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.

I adore this pic! :la: I love all the details- the colors and shadows and glowing parts- except one. :stare: The middle two fingers of a Drell hand are fused together.

This has a really strange appearance to it; it messes with my eyes - in a good way. If I squint it's like I could actually reach out and touch him... weird! But I love it! Thane is my second favourite character in the ME games, and you have defo done him justice here! Well done, instant Fav! <3

Thane is probably my favorite character in the whole series, ahead of Mordin, Garrus, and Wrex, and you really did him justice here. Thane is such a badass.

I love it. The hole action pose you have Thane charging up his biotics in is very fitting for him as a slayer vanguard. And of course the texturing, lighting and shdows are very outstanding, it's obvious you put a lot of time and effort into this. Very well done, there should be Mass Effect art like this out there.

hes not that hard. use Vangaurd with fully upgraded Phaeston or Revenant with fire ammo, best shotgun u have, and any squad and he is gone within like 3 minutes, no joke. fire ammo just DESTROYS all his health and armor and the fire rate of the Revenant and Phaeston simply make that even more effective. plus renegade interupt, never can turn that one down

fai-kwan Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012
i never said he was hard ^o^ just annoying
had to turn the interrupt down because my commander's been paragon since ME3 and I didn't want to ruin that..

weapons used-
geth rifle V
krogan spiker V
javelin V

too badass.

u can actually not have Thane die by Kai Leng if u dont talk to him in Huerta Memorial, but unfortunately Kirahe takes his place (if hes alive that is)
