Mass Effect 3 - Zaeed Massani by patryk-garrett Mass Effect 3 - Zaeed Massani by patryk-garrett
Personal art of Mass Effect.
The ninth picture featuring Zaeed Massani

Originally I wanted to set him in a night club (a slaughter house) but eventually went with a dusty and sultry setting. Zaeed's armor is covered with sand/dirt and a bit of rust (a little homage to that shittty old rifle - Jessie). Even though his original design is perfect I could not resist and made a few changes in his gauntlet (nothing too drastic though). I love his voice, stories. Love him for being so damn nostalgic make my wish he was my relative - I shit you not.

No photo tracing or 3D models were used here. Only some small elements of the background were overpainted. I also used the ME2 screenshots as references for Zaeed's face and bunch of photo textures. The armor lighting was inspired by the Iron Man render I once saw. The original size is A4 with 300dpi. This is the fan and"skills-showing" portfolio art, so no copyright infringement was intended.

 i dont think he drew it. i think he got a high quality camera, traveled to the Citadel and took a picture of him in real life.

Robin will be sadly missed, I remember him the the Buffy days, as Ethan Rayne, He had a voice that whenever you heard it, you knew it was Robin. Zaeed is awesome, yes he can be caustic and cold, but at least you know that is what you will get with him, he doesn't sugar coat things. I hope Robin's family are coping at this difficult time. RIP Robin, you always will be the freakin awesome merc that earned many fans simply for being a goddamned badass. :-)

I know this is a little late of a response, but his VA actually did a bunch of stuff with Dragon age. He passed away earlier this year though right before the citadel DLC :-( R.I.P Robin Sachs.

Zaeed has GOT to be one of my favorite characters form the Mass Effect games. I'm not to the point of wishing he was a romance-able option in ME2, but he really does remind me of a few of my relatives. And, actually, one of my Air Force recruiters. :)

I really love the atmosphere you put in this image. It just really...suits him, is all I can think of to say. So thank you for sharing this with the internet. :) Thank you so much.

Just so you know, Bioware used your image in their tribute to Robin Sachs, the voice actor for Zaeed who passed away a few days ago:

Love this, especially his face and the armor. My only complaint is that the uncovered part of his right arm looks a bit out of proportion. Looks too small.

And is he smoking something or is it just a smoking piece of paper or something? Can't make it out.
