my wife's tali zorah redesign in 3d by nebezial my wife's tali zorah redesign in 3d by nebezial
just had some zbrush fun with my wife's old fanart of mass effects tali zorah. it is a topic that annoyed us to no end these days... ugh.. but ill not go into that discussion all over again, i think i got the nerd rage out of my system... anyhoo

quick model with photoshop postwork and compositing, all in all a 2 and a half hour funtime
and here is the original pic it was based on

I always loved that piece of Fan-Art, and I don't think there's many that was happy about the choices they made with the revelation of Tali's face in the game.
I'd much more like an approach like this :)

This is quite the impressive design, and I can see the level of love and detail that went into the concept of it. Dark corneas with light iris' coincide with the silhouette that we were able to make out in Mass Effect 1. The plate like features on her head seem inspired by turian physiology, understandable given their shared dextro-amino buildup, and the fact they share the same number of fingers and toes.It seems logical for her hair to be braided and kept back like that, as it would need to be kept in check to avoid obstructing her view, as such an issue could only be corrected by taking off her mask. The model quality is quite good and the original picture equally detailed. It's such a shame Bioware took the cop out of doing a lame photoshop with no consideration for actual design or originality. I'm glad to say this is how I will picture unmasked quarians from here on out. Excellent work.

I like that from an in-game perspective the anatomy makes a lot of sense because Quarians seem to share a lot of their anatomy with Taurians (legs, arms, hands and feet), but with a more human-like body, pelvis and face.

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:

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.
