thx  :)
I really love the attention to detail you have! Like the condensation on the inside of Tali's helmet, amazing! And that's totally because she is crying tears of joy right? Because Shepard just got back to her and they are going to build themselves a home on the home-world and THAT IS TOTALLY HOW MASS EFFECT 3 ENDS! I AM NOT LISTENING TO ANY OTHER ARGUMENTS ANYONE PUTS FORTH!!!

Keelah se'lai, sir! This is how Mass Effect 3 ends in my mind as well! Tali and Shepard, together forever! (cliche, I know... but Tali is worth it!) :)

thx :)
Stunning work! Such an emotional and powerful picture!
I can easily picture this taking place just after the scene where she refuses to put Shepard's name on the Memorial; then, Traynor notifies the crew about an incoming message from Ackett, stating that the Commander has just been found among the ruins of Citadel's Control Centre...still alive! And Tali collapses to the ground , crying, due to sheer happiness, joy and pent-up emotions.
Of course, he will be in critical conditions, with severe injuries, probably in coma...but he is The Goddamn Commander Shepard, and he has got a promise to fulfill and an home to build; so, he will recover completely in a few months...and she will be there by his side.

And the best part about this? It is not an head-canon. It is simply what really happens in the game, as confirmed by the developers themselves.

Wow, thanks
When i wanted to draw this piece, i've try to consider a turmoil or confusion inside Tali's head. She's a very interessant character, with true and strong charisma (this physic, this voice… whether French or original, brrrrr… :) )
But, this love for Shepard is really bigger, almost scary, isn't it ? ;). Several times in ME3, it confirms assiduously.
Now, considering the end, I do not see how Shepard can escape his fate in the catalyst, whatever the chosen end.
Indeed, this drawing is for me, the logical end of the "destruction", as in the kinematics or Tali hesitate to put the plaque. Maybe, Shepard would be alive (with the sigh of the final sequence ) ... I do not know.
It's hard to leave our hero like that, hanging out in the smoking ruins of the citadel, but it's "logic". This is what I tried to transcribe, sadness, heavy and deep, but surely no hope, alas!

In any case, thank you for this wonderful critique.
