I just did my quarter yearly revisit of deviantart and omg I love this picture. It just has atmosphere. A captured moment. Among all else, they look at the stars and they know that they can go there. Yes I do love this universe.

That picture gives me so much emotions. I love sitting out watching the stars, I love my Shepard (yours looks quite like my own), I love Liara and just everything about Mass Effect. They are both such perfect characters and this picture of them just having a casual time somehow makes me jealous. I noticed many of your pictures capture a feeling. Without being the best graphic ones in the whole wide world, they still outdo most of the other things I've seen.

well this is the ME3 default femshep. I first wanted to make my own but after a few miserable attempts I looked at the default model and thought "Hey she looks quite nice and oh she has freckles."
Thank you, I really try to put as much love into my pics as possible.

Hey, I saw this on Femshep.com! Oh, I remember thinking how much I was going to enjoy this scene in 'Citadel'.
So in other words, you gave me unrealistic expectations, grrr!

Naw, it don't matter :) This is such a romantic scene, so pretty. The lighting is excellent, and the background is lovely. Are they in Australia or Israel? Or Thessia? (Okay, maybe not Thessia). Lovely. :heart:

what made you think this was a citadel scene? :lol:

you are free to interprete it like you want I don't have given much thought about where they are. But the background picture is a combination of two photos. it is originally shot in Utah.

Why did I think so? At the time I wasn't as familiar with modding as I am now, and assumed that because I didn't recognize the scene and setting that it was from Citdel, because the 'word on the street' was that it had some fun stuff and romantic stuff in it ^_^. So mostly assumptions on my part :D

Well wherever it is, it looks like a really romantic spot:heart:

This is perfect. I love the thoughtful expression on their faces. Really seems to capture a quiet moment for them. Its as if its from a scene straight out of the game. I could imagine them sitting like this right at the very end (if things had been a little different).

Damn epic! You use the HD-Package for ME3, right? BEcause Liara has a carbon(?) armor on her chest.

Sorry, sorry. I have several books on the stars and I was curious. If this is a view from Earth, I wanted to see where you would have to be to see this version of the night sky!

You turned me into a Mass Effect fan! Bad Fish, bad! :D
I just finished ME1 today and ME3 before that, and right now I'm downloading ME2 off of Steam. Gotta play again with exported character...
Anyway, NEED MORE FEMSHEP/LIARA!!!
Reply
:iconfishbone76:
fishbone76 Featured By Owner May 7, 2013
haha I'm so not sorry.
ME2 is the best of all 3. You'll love it.
femshep/liara is a lovely couple. I also ship them, right after femshep/Sam.

Tirah Featured By Owner May 7, 2013
I've heard it is the best one, but I'm worried Liara won't be there much. I don't have the Shadow Broker DLC, so that might suck. Will have to buy it later.

Btw, could you tell me where to download default FemShep model for XNALara please? Been lurking around the TR Forums but the guy who uploaded the models there had his account suspended or something and says he won't reupload "for personal reasons"...
Reply
:iconfishbone76:
fishbone76 Featured By Owner May 7, 2013
Yeah not much Liara in there which is why you should get the DLC.

I uploaded you 3 default femsheps here [link]
femshep hoodie, N7 armor (from :icongoha7777: ) and casual alliance with lazarus scars (from :iconsumirehaikuxna: )check her mod gallery for more [link]

also here's the mass effect mod gallery from :iconxnalara-customized:

Many thanks! I owe you one. I've been looking everywhere, found pretty much every model from the trilogy plus a crapload of nude mods, but for some reason all ME3 female Shepards were removed. Well, the ones I was after anyway. The naked ones are still out there. :-)

So yeah, thank you again!

i've a couple more default femshep (ME2 dress, ME3 black uniform, hurt and more) if you're interested just pm me :)

Tirah Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
Sure, I'll take whatever you've got. :D
You were right about ME2. I love it! It's just so much better than the first one. The lack of romance is slightly annoying and sadly the Steam version doesn't come with the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC so I'll have to get that later, but other than that it's great. Shepard finally looks somewhat decent.

Truly beautiful. A peaceful looking moment in itself and also a reminder of their stargazing near the end of the game.
