Seeing so many versions of some purple-skinned human female without irises has become so boring...
Your take on Tali is like a fresh wind! It is, in fact, the rendition of Tali that looks perfectly credible and legit to me. You've created a whole species, not just one Quarian.
Amazing job! :thumbsup:
Ohhhhhh god. You have to make more from mass effect. You are just amazing man. Thanks for sharing it with us :D

I like this Tali so much better than the face in the game. THIS is Tali. This is what I would have totally expected to see. I'm so in love with this. :love:
SO GOOD! One of the best! Saw only ONE version that is better than this! I hate the fact that, in ME3, she reveals to be "Beautiful". IDK I just think she shouldnt be beautiful... She should be an alien totally diferent from the human patterns, but still humanoid... Well, hugs for yu wife!
I absolutely love this version of Tali. She's exotic enough as to not be a human knockoff, and yet human enough to be quite beautiful. Why oh why did Bioware not just select a fan's variant, rather than go with such a crude photoshop rendition?

This is as perfect a version of Tali as I've ever seen.
actually, they didn't. in ME3's last DLC, if you invite tali to your apartment as a LI.
after she's done singing. she proceeds to take of her mask. but before we can see her face, the screen fades to black, like before bioware revealed the photoshop. its a safe bet that bioware doesn't want to acknowledge any fanart, but neither will they set the photoshop as cannon. so basically, we're back to square one, where all versions are valid.
is this the real drawing or she redraw this?
