Space zombies.
Inspired from ancient asari mural style.

This one was taking FOREVER to make. *facepalm sigh*


I heard there's a tendency for asari to make the central character's appearance gradually looking like one of them. At least for the time being, the "Battle-maiden" still maintain some human features, but obvious alterations such as the weapon and armors were made to cope with asari culture. So please don't ask why she's dressed in ancient asari robe and Justicar armors, like I certainly don't think Athame was half naked when she taught the asaris how to farm 50000 years ago, either...

Speaking of Athame, her actual gender is something worth ponder upon. As common paternal terms in human culture are rare nor possess literal meanings in asari culture, there could be a possibility that it was a male Prothean scientist who went to Thessia, and he carried an "athame" which was a kind of blade, perhaps similar to Javik's blade he used to slit his indoctrinated crews' throat..., anyway, it's all speculations, nothing more...

--------------

We should consider putting Garrus (or anybody who romanced with Shepard regardless of gender) into stasis so then he/she could wake up 50000 years later and totally troll the future asaris about how he/she was "joined" with the Battle-maiden (regardless of actual gender)....

some people have joked that there may actually become a religion around the Shepherd

I kinda believe it would, somehow, unless if the Reapers wiped out everything again.

funny thing is, if you make a female, paragon, colonist, war hero....., then you would have something extremely  similar to Joan of arc

Magnificent work in this as well, I love the style of the figure and green in my favorite color, it work into the piece is very nice. Boy do the Reaper look creepy D: but the Battle-maiden Shep is awesome, kinda gives hope in this piece. The stasis love-interest bit made me laugh.
