Balance Of Sexy: Tali by SirTiefling Balance Of Sexy: Tali by SirTiefling
I wondered how to fight the bishyboy invasion and arranged the "Balance of Sexy" lottery.

With XENOPHILIA, said the winner
:iconakaderyl:
and requested Mass Effect's Tali!

Your mileage may vary... :)

Other ME fan art I've done:



Tools: Mouse, Paint Shop Pro

PS. Those visors are like eyeglasses - you always need to clean them! And Samus agrees:


Update: oops. Added the missing toe.

Crazy amount of details! This has to be the single most brilliant rendition of Tali without a helmet I've ever seen. Love those little wisps of hair peeping out.

I love the way you've done Tali's face.  I was pretty upset when the game had a picture that looked like they'd just photoshopped a typical human woman's face.  You're looks more alien which is appreciated :)

And the same feeling here: her in-game face was disappointing.

This is a VERY VERY good tali. That hoodie/metal thing/what's name for it? is freaking AMAZING detail. Adds so much.

But cleaning is very important too.

I haven't vacuumed my house in weeks. Lots of dust. Don't dare! Not yet, because there is a wasp inside my vacuum cleaner. It might still be alive... or worse. :(

Actually, I think she should've looked something REALLY strange and alien. A Mass Effect player can already romance a two-legged lizard who's got lung cancer, so....

True. As we all know the thing with tali's real face was a "lazy, insulting" action by Bioware :)
They had to ask you for a real Tali face.
This is a wonderful work :clap:

Just recently played through again, partially so I could romance Tali and get to see her face. Nicely done. :)

I can't help but want to romance Tali ever time I play so I have to go with FemShep to get a little variety, haha.

I completely understand why people who played the orig said she was the girl they most WANTED to romance. Her constantly upbeat personality along with her cute Romanian/Gypsy accent was awesome. :) I was very curious about what they'd do about her face. Not sure I'm entirely happy with the result since it didn't entirely jive with what we'd been told (in game she mentions something about "what we have that passes for ears" for instance.) - but I can't fault their choice really, she turned out beautiful, and with a Romanian sort of face to match the accent. :)

For me, first play-thru of ME2 I went with Miranda - the skin-tight bodysuit was just too hot. I seem like I'm the only person in the whole world that understood her though. :D

I'm bro-Shep-ing ME2 right now and I'm romancing Miranda simply because I hadn't yet. I romanced Liara in ME1 and will likely pick that up in ME3 is she'll let me since I felt guilty after playing the "Lair of the Shadow Broker" DLC, ahaha.

I liked the idea that I'd seduced her away from Illusive Man and Cerberus. And even if you think she's a bitch, she's still a HOT bitch. ;)

she's not really a bitch, it's just a front. Underneath she's quite vulnerable and somewhat insecure. But yes, HELLA hot! :D

That of course was what I saw in her. There's an Alanis Morriset song: Perfect - that is her theme song. "I'll love you, when you are perfect." She's spent her life trying to live up to her fathers expectations of perfection, and never really quite convinced she's good enough. She rescued her sister so her sister wouldn't have to go through the same insanity, but everyone seems to be hooked up on the idea that being filthy stinking rich is better than being treated like a human being. I KEENLY understand that feeling of being treated as less than a person so I completely got her.

Yup, it didn't surprise me too much that they went for an eastern-European/gypsy-girl sort of face.
After all that fits her accent. :)
