How about a dance, Shepard by Striped-Stocking How about a dance, Shepard by Striped-Stocking
Guess Shep and Liara are at some Alliance celebration or another :P. Not only is Shep...not the greatest dancer, but she also feels a little awkward in the uniform. At least mine does, cause she only ever wears her hoodie :D

I'm on a roll with Liara and Shep pics, lately. The idea had been in my head for a bit, started this last night and it's already done! I wish I was always this productive :D. Oh well, off to making the follow up pic to this...Spoiler alert, it involves different kind of dancing xDD.

As always, please don't steal, trace, copy or post without permission.

Thank you :)
I used Manga Studio for inking this, actually, and Photoshop for the sketch and the coloring :D.

Ooooh! I see! I was wondering about the "effect" you achieved. But cool! Lovely work!

I wasn't aware that I had achieved an "effect", actually :D If you specify, maybe I can help :)?
And thank you again :D

That's the thing. It's hard to explain what I meant. XD I guess I mean it looks very unique. Kinda looks like a traditional media piece to be honest. Before I enlarged the image I thought that it was a traditional media deviation. It kinda looks like you've colored it with either markers/felt pen/colour pencil. I think the red portion on Liara's dress is so cool btw!

Wow, thanks a lot! :D I wasn't aware it had that effect :D. I guess it comes from 2 things. The textures I used on Shep's outfit (which is just a texture from..I think a t-shirt, btw) and also, the way I color the outfits.

For Liara, I put down the colors and then blended them with a textured brush, so I used the same technique I do for the faces, but for Shep's entire outfit and a part of Liara's I take the basic colors, duplicate the layer, set it to multiply and that way, I can add the darker parts the same way you'd do with, say, a copic marker :). It's really useful, cause it's fast and I like the effect ^^.

Hahaha, thank you again, the red part on her dress was actually pretty easy, I just painted it like the rest of the dress and then put the texture over it, setting the layer option to color dodge (I think..I like to just try things out 'til they work :D) Hope that helped a little :).
