Inspired by Krogan art style. I bet the krogan would never see their artwork as inspiring.... well, they are!

Priority: Tuchanka was actually one of my favorite missions for ME3, simply because the temple was so magnificent... and Kalros kicks them reaper asses so much it's great. And since I played femShep, the subtlety of feminine peacemaking wisdom and preserving traditional culture for the future had won my favor. I love Urdnot Bakara, and that crystal she gave Shep meant so much, too bad there weren't any following-up stories surrounding the crystal.

Heh, I kinda actually wonder how will the future civilizations interpret this piece.

--------

And no, no volus, because they're kinda just don't fit in the ambiance. I'm not being racist, I actually like that Biotic God guy, he's funny, but I'm excluding volus in memory of the Turian Sixth Fleet (Reference: masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Cita…, Video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCXQgr…. Volus fans, please consider blaming the ambassador for his shrewdness before dosing any biotic powers onto me. :P

This is an awesome picture. I always loved the whole interspecies alliance aspect of ME, and this picture encapsulates it perfectly.

Out of all three of you're art pieces, I probably like this one the best! I also really liked the Krogan Temple and such :3

Doesn't change the fact that the Reapers are an evil blight that need to be permanently dealt with.

And they are permanently dealt with in control and synthesis, but this time, without killing the geth. The reapers are nothing more than machines being programmed to harvest civilizations by an incredibly misguided AI

And? The fact that they HARVEST CIVILIZATIONS is reason enough to rub them out. And for machines that were "only following their programming", they spent a lot of time boasting about how hopeless the silly little organics were in trying to stop their cyclical genocide. Sounds more like sadism and delusions of superiority than routine to me.

And who's to say those....other endings DON'T eventually backfire somehow?

I rest my case.

Yeah, and you can stop them from harvesting civilizations. Or, you could can stop them from harvesting civilizations and then use them to rebuild the current ones. Plus, would you really kill an innocent race out of spite for another?
"they spent a lot of time boasting about how hopeless the silly little organics were in trying to stop their cyclical genocide. " a big part of the reapers war strategy is psycological. Its more for intimidation than anything else. And once again, they're programmed to do that. "Sounds more like sadism and delusions of superiority than routine to me." the reapers are robots. None of those concepts mean anything to them. They likely don't even know of or understand them.

"
And who's to say those....other endings DON'T eventually backfire somehow?" and who's to say they do? Control literally allows Shepard to control what the reapers do. Its kind of like he takes the place of the catalyst. The reapers can't go against him. The reapers see synthesis as an alternate solution to the harvest, so with everyone being both organic and synthetic, they have no reason to continue. Destroy simply has to many downsides to be a worthwhile option

I'm in love with all three of them but I gotta ask: was part of this inspired by the caves painting/carving found in the desert temple at the beginning of "The Fifth Element" movie. Cause it REALLY reminds me of that, they just feel sorta similar! But, like I said, all three of your pictures are awesome! I was listening to Zelda music when I was looking at these and they fit so well :heart::heart:

Um, I love the fifth element, but I took 100% inspiration from Tuchanka. :) I really should replay all the Zelda games too... I hope they have a remake for Twilight Princess. <3

These 3 images of ''The Reaper War'' are trully amazing pieces of art along others you have made but I must ask, do you have them in a higher resolution? I would love to have them as wallpapers and fit perfectly in the screen.

Thanks, but I apologize for deciding not releasing higher resolution for wallpaper usage (making wallpapers is a hassle because screen comes in different sizes). The only high-resolution images I've had are for prints.

once the whole universe was threatened by a race older and more dangerous than any other, even we Krogan.
they threatened, spread and destroyed everything that they saw then disappeared until the universe forgot about them.
But this time there was one that stood before them, that gathered the different clans of different worlds and fought against them.
Shepard, a human warrior as great as any krogan, friend to Urdnot Wrex, battle master to Urdnot Grunt and destroyer of the Genophage.
she shouted, she fought, she rallied, threatened and lead all species to fight against the Repears. With her crew she learned of the device that could destroy the most dangerous enemy, but she did not know that she would have to give her own life to take theirs.
Did she let that stop her? NO, she destroyed the Repears by sacrificing herself and allowing the rest of us to live, with no hesitation in her choice.

there are few warriors as great as Shepard throughout the history of the universe and she will be remembered for all time. So move you hump Pyjack, it's time to start your own legacy.

Totally awesome work - and I agree on not adding the volus. Their suits are waaay to clunky to fit in with the rest of the picture. From reading up on them, they're supposed to look a bit like the vorcha bit without the spikey bits.
