The FemShep Renegade by SirTiefling The FemShep Renegade by SirTiefling
Many of you have wanted me to do more Mass Effect fan art. Here is one. My Shepard looked like this!

And here are the other ME fan art pictures I've done in the past



Tools: Mouse, Paint Shop Pro 7

PS. Yeah, the girlier Shepards, even the ones with red hair, can save the galaxy too. But my Shepard still looked like this. And spoke like Jennifer Hale. Weird times. I wierd.

PPS. Okay, I remade the picture:

Vanilla Shepard is pretty and all, but yours looks much more striking. She means business and that business is ass-kickery.

Yeah, I think she should look tougher than the redhead default. However, when I decided to replay ME2 (max difficulty - that was... tough), my femShep was a goth. Black hair, black lipstick... :D

Bah, I think the point of customizable player characters is so everybody can have their own Shepard, who looks however the hell one wants her to. There's a default look, but not a "right" look. I really like your version (though truth be told, the other drawing also looks amazing).

From what I've observed, you don't really see too many black Shepard's...it's nice to finally find some artwork that represents her as a woman of color; and since she is a renegade in this picture the shaved look does suit her.

Practically and theoretically speaking; FemShep SHOULD look like this. The army is not a 'who is the prettiest slu-- AHEM marine' competition and the more practical your hair is for helmets, the better.

Aesthetically speaking; Most people consider bald women to be ugly... Sadly, I happen to be one of them. Dont ask me why I just dont happen to like it D:

Though that doesn't make me dislike this; because, like I said, she fits her role. Good job! :clap:

I actually like her more as a Shepard rather than duckfaced (seriously... she has a permanent duckface... why hasn't ANYONE NOTICED THAT?!) Miss Redhead.

Though I do happen to enjoy baldness on those girls that know how to wear it, so that's a plus for me...

Yeah some girls happen to be able to wear it, like jack :P though then again, I'm more of a fan of that half ponytail half bald cut she has in ME3, especially on badass chicks :P

My shep was blonde, my dad's shep looked similar to this. I don't like folk sterotyping that Shep has to be a red head, green eyed female. She is who the player wants her to be, looks, personality ect...I think this is gorgeous, I also think your other pic is too. If I was forced to choose between them however, I said this one...because its your depiction of your Shepard =)

In the games I've played (the ones with character creation) I've often tried to replicate my own face. Usually not much success there. Other times, things get very creepy. So I end up playing 1) Ugly Dumb Male Brute Orc Berserker/Ugly Dumb Male Brute Astromarine Grenadier, or 2) Sexy Female Mage-Thief/Sexy Female Cyberninja. :)

Mass Effect has been an interesting exception.

Very, very cool. I usually just browse rather than stop by to comment on pics, but this is a truly unique piece that I think is a very accurate representation of what femShep should look like. She's a damned soldier, not a pinup, and this is excellent work.

One thing I'd say, and I know this is more Bioware's problem because they designed the stupid things, but the moulded "boob cups" on several of fShep's armour models always bugged me. If somebody wearing that fell over they'd break their sternum! Without getting into too much detail, it's not as though the things can't be held down... I always end up using the armour that looks the same on both male and female Shepards for that reason!

I repeat though, excellent work!

SirTiefling Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013
Heheh. "Boob cups". :D

Well, I thought it was appropriate to add a tiny bit of "sexy" here... and, of course, to tell a casual browser who doesn't bother to check the details that, yes, this Shepard is a "she". :)

She's absolutely beautiful and very unique, and there aren't enough Femsheps like her. My second Femshep is of Black descent but I have to agree that the character customization doesn't allow much options to create a believable Black female. :( Also, the default Femshep just looks way too cartoony to my taste compared to what you can achieve if you take the time to make your own.

I always made black female Shepards, I just felt Jennifer Hale(that's her name right?) voice fit them better, plus I enjoy non-white protagonists; couldn't stand the male VA. UGH. Not this masculine though, but I certainly appreciate people making "tough" female heroes who actually are tough.

First, I tried to make my own face, become Shepard myself, but the customization wasn't flexible enough (the noses were all too small, et cetera). So I did, like I always seem to do in the end, make a girl protagonist. Glad I did. Jennifer sounds great.

(By the way, I'm ashamed to admit that I've played the game "Saints Row The Third". I really should paint my Boss one day. The game is insane, the customization is insane, and my character looks even more insane than insane.) :D

Yeah, I didn't even try to my face, the male was just too square jawed by default.

Yes, I guessed the majority likes that redheaded default-Shep and reacts to my version with great reluctancy. But I'm rebellious! :D

Do not get me wrong. I love your version. I just do not have the right reference. As far as my afinity to red heads, well... That I just am not able to explain. Actually, it is kind of strange, since none of my own characters are red heads. Unless you count the magma soul genasi - but then she is a differnt story all together.

You have one of the most unique styles here on dA, like Dire Straits using his finger plucking and producing great music when all those around him are using picks - what you produce with a mouse is astounding!

Serious art.
