Hey guys,

Been working the past few weeks on a couple of Mass Effect pieces (after beating Mass Effect 2). Both were created in Gimp using my Wacom Bamboo tablet.

Comments and critique always appreciated!

The first is Garrus from Mass Effect 1.

The second (unfinished) is Thane, from Mass Effect 2.

Edit: Now finished!

Haha, no problem. No, I don't do much graphic design. But I'm in my first year of college and majoring in graphic design, so I'll get there eventually. ;)

Yea? I've done some design work, but nothing quite like that, mainly concept stuff and logo's.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I've had the ability to help my dad with his business a little bit. I helped design and print some business cards and flyers. All done with Gimp!

Looks very good. Maybe you should antialias your text? It would make it look nicer.

Well, I know the text looks bad. I had it looking better earlier when I realized that I had spelled something wrong. Then I didn't really spend much time making the new one, so it looks bad. Meh :D Appreciate the comment though.

Thanks for the compliments thus far. I should have that second piece done soon.

Do you hand paint it from scratch in the gimp or do something else first?

I'm not sure what you mean by "do something else", but I started with a blank canvas and started painting. Used pictures for reference. Once I was done, I overlayed some textures for realism.

I mean like tracing screenshots or drawing by hand first.

A bit of both. I try not to trace at all because it feels like cheating. If I'm really struggling with perspective, though, I will trace small bits.

The first piece was not traced at all. The second is an alteration of pose I found in a screenshot, and was somewhat traced for angle.

However, when I trace it is only for main outer lines, and the rest is filled in without the original image.

Hey guys! Finished that second piece. Not too happy with some of it, but just really needed to finish it.

Thanks! Sure you can. If you know how to use Photoshop, you know how to use Gimp.

Problem is, I can't Photoshop! :D

ATM too busy for school/evening school.... so no time to learn how to use gimp :( (got some tutorials stored for if I want to learn though!)
kinda hate this too busy life (wish I just quit evening school for a year and pick it up after finishing regular school...)
Ah well making things like my avatar<<<<<<(on the left) is kinda fun too! :D -> that's all I can do on GIMP :D

The text on the image says he was, "...in the officer in charge..." I was making fun of a typo asking if she (the officer) was hot.

LOL. Dangit! That's the second typo I made on that image. You're the first to notice it. Crap, I need to check my work better before I publish.
