normandy tour, part 6 (end): CIC, Helm and War Room. Joker, robot queen, the chatty marine sisters, and a crew with a propensity for air quotes. The Normandy: home.
normandy tour, part 5: shuttle bay and engineering—both are full of dark corners for doing dark deeds. ha… though those two crewmen seem like they’d notice makeouts happening behind that crate. also, javek. makeouts and similar activities definitely not recommended in his room.
normandy tour, part 4: chillax place with videogames. drinking, smoking and gambling is also allowed. why can’t i move to the normandy? also, a hugeass room with an open view and a library. perfect fit for a lonely nerd who wants to contemplate his integrity all day.
normandy tour, part 3: ministry of endless calibrations and borkerzone. garrus keeps a mantis on his desk and liara has a coffee machine right next to her bed. workaholics.
normandy tour, part 2: crew’s quarters, james’ personal huevos rancheros kitchen and medbay.
fun fact: chakwas has a predator pistol on her table.
SO, since i’m gonna have to draw some ~backgrounds~ for the mebb and i’m terribad at that kind of thing, i figured i’d fire up this cool game, commence flycam, ignore my motion sickness and take some screenshots for reference.
the whole experience ended up being something like a normandy tour (and i’m okay with that). i also figured i’d share this stuff because it might be cool!
normandy tour, part 1: shep has one hell of a crib.
i have such a ladyboner for the spess muhreen armor it’s not even funny. it’s why i try drawing it and fail utterly. but that armor… unf… seriously, past me2 the scifi armors in mass effect are such works of art. they’re just beautiful. /wibbles
also, let me talk about how happy it makes me that the plating on kaidan’s back is specially designed so it covers the back of his head and thus his amp. HNGHNGHNGHG PERFECT. also also, it was a really good idea to bulk him up. his butt popped, for one. and that’s a good thing. and kaidan’s not skinny little lieutenant alenko anymore. (my headcanon is that he started to fully focus on career after me1, and hit the gym hard, having little else to keep his mind off things. shepard dying was a kick in the balls.)
appreciate what mama alenko popped out, y’all. respect, mom.
his hands are so tiny though fhgfdjfgdj
did i tell you guys that the first thing i did after getting my new comp was to get flycam I COULD MESS AROUND WITH THIS ALL DAY
sometimes you notice stuff that’s so wonky it’s fun (note james being such n7 material his seat sits on him instead; kaidan having a case of the sads in the background jfc i haven’t even started the game; sheploo ridiculously photogenic as ever…), also you can turn off the user interface if only for a moment thank god.
i suppose glorious buttshots will ensue.
I’ll have you know I have a bone to pick with the new!and!improved default femshep. I loved the old default. I loathe the new default because reasons
don’t get me started.
From what I remember, default femshep used to be a seemingly petite redhead with green eyes and a cute stubby button nose and permanent duckface fishlips and a scar splitting her left eyebrow. And she was perfect. I loved her. A bloo bloo bloo my feelings.
SO, here’s my attempt at a remake. Hi, Jane! I guess she looks alright—except she’s got light brown hair now, because none of the red hair colors in ME3 look natural and f
uck you she was a natural redhead because she was a speshul snowflake just like Shepalooloo with his perfect blue eyes in a setting where such recessive genes aren’t supposed to exist but I guess that’s retconned now, and her scar is gone (thank the Lazarus project for eyebrow implants, though).
And for a bonus, she looks so fucking mad all the time.
