Tali by almightyblah Tali by almightyblah
Woo! Finally done colouring - and it only took me a week!
(I would have been done quicker, but it had to be finished in between that whole "life" thing that always seems to get in the way...)

There were a few points where I wanted to tear out my hair, but I actually really love how this turned out. ...Which is saying something, 'cause I'm incredibly critical of my own work.


Yet again I need to give mega-cudos to my baby sister, Steph. Not only was she the one who taught me how to use Illustrator in order to draw the lineart in the first place, but she also visited me during the colouring process (used Photoshop) and gave me some really awesome pointers. Gotta love Graphic Design students, eh?

As with the lineart, this one is also dedicated to her. Love you, Stephie Mae! :heart:


The only part of this piece I didn't create myself is the swirl pattern I used on her suit. I wish I knew who to give credit to, but the truth is I google image-searched "Tali Swirl Pattern" and found this: [link] I have no idea who made it, since the website that linked it was a forum. So, if anyone knows who made that, please let me know so I can credit them properly.


Much love to all my fellow Mass Effect fans!
Enjoy!
:aww:

It feels weird that you are thanking me for this. You are the one who made this amazing artwork; the dedication warms the heart. I gave you a tiny tiny fishing rod, but you were the one who learned to use it... and fished the lake dry after! So, thank YOU~ <33

I know - I tried to include her eyes and nose, but no matter how much I tried, I just couldn't get them to look right. :(
I'll keep playing with it, though - and if I can get it to a point where I'm happy with it, I'll switch out the image. ;P
