Ulysses by kaff33nd Ulysses by kaff33nd
Playing Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, I can't help feeling that this is a classical Greek drama set in the future. With this in mind I envision Shepard (the games' protagonist) as a cross between Heracles & Odysseus (Ulysses). The Tennyson quote was spoken in the first game and repeated in an email in the second. The image portrays Shepard as Ulysses holding the fate of humanity in his hands.

That's a very interesting thought.

Thankyou. I have a few threads discussing it over at the Bioware Social site. If you want to follow it up that is.

Very good work! I really like the dramatic lighting in the picture.

Thanks! I actually think the lighting could have been a bit more dramatic. Maybe some more saturation in the nebula.... I'll do better next time. I actually think the subdued look somehow adds to the piece. Still I'm a big fan of bold colours.

Thanks mate... Always nice to be appreciated. I must say, I always avoided DeviantART as I always felt it was for real artists.
