Model Ships by AndrewRyanArt Model Ships by AndrewRyanArt
There was only ever one person for my Shepard, and that person was Kaidan Alenko. Getting to watch these two awkward dopes slowly build a relationship over the course of the trilogy was a personal highlight for me as a gaymer who just wanted to have the same fun everyone else was having in this incredible universe.
And as I prepare to take these two on their final adventure with tomorrow’s DLC I just want to say thanks Bioware, from the bottom of my sappy heart.

As we'll never have bioware mshenko in the future cause they get rid of all the known character for andromeda, you're the one able to make them live forever :D thanks for sharing your amazing work, can't wait for new mshenko arts from you :)

I like how Kaidan's eyes look entirely focused of the ship's way in the air ! :)

I just love this one so much. So darling.

As a fan of Mass Effect 1-3, I have a HUGE problem with this picture.Rage   Those ships were made of PEWTER and monochrome in coloring.  Didn't you pay attention?  =P (Razz)  Nothing wrong with the rest, though.

i want to unfav it only so i can fav it again.
Thallys Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014
I do not understand why people don't really like Kaiden, he was the only one for my Shep too (even if he didn't always like me because I was a bastard). You are is my catalyst for the end of the game.
Gaara429 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013
Can I say I agree %110! For me as well Kaidan was the only one foe my shepard. Even though I wish I could have future  journeys with them I'm so thankful for Bioware. I just love them so much!!  
ShivaWings Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013
Is it weird of me to think 'I can completely imagine this!!' ?   haha xD So adorable ^^
Ishild Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013
This makes me smile.  Default Shep and Kaiden were made for each other.  You are really great at capturing a lot of emotional context.

I like to imaging them making ship and laser noises while running around the cabin
elmjuniper Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really like Shepard's face in this pic. It's kinda like this worn out soldier looking at this ship with a childish, innocent fascination.  Love it.
missmia196 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
I ship it.
PistachioInfernal Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013
But also awesome. <3

Aww, this is too cute!
ebon-soulbane Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
I am a collector of the ships and one thing bugs me about this pic
the one in alenkos hand. its not in the collection is it?
I have never seen it before and want to know if I am missing one.
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2013  Student General Artist
No it's not actually in Shepard's collection from the game
ebon-soulbane Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014
oh thank what ever gods are in the MEverse I thought it was 1 I had missed lol I know what it is now its the blue suns gunship from ME2 archangel mission right?
mattsey02 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013
Magnifique j'adore !!!
Altirra Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013
They seem to be very enthusiastic =D I want Normandy model too! =D
Zharvolk Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013
Amazing. You're Kaidan is the closest I've seen to the original. Beautifully done all the way around and thank you for sharing.

I just started the trilogy and am on the second game (nearly done!) And I must say, from the beginning, my John Shepard has always been for Kaidan. This is a sweet and somewhat sad piece (considering what Bioware has in store for our Shepards) but it's fantastic anyway.
male168 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013
this picture is so childish and naive in a good sense, Kaiden and Shep are sooo sweet)
lupus1989 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2013
I love the fact that you've got so much amazing art for Kaidan and ManShep. Best romance IMO, well worth the wait for the third game :P
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2013  Student General Artist
Thank you so much :)
Yuki-kon Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
God, this is beautiful. And I can totally relate to what you're saying about their romance. Anyway, seeing this drawing of yours makes me really happy. And it also kind of sends a message to my inner child that it's okay to be a kid even when you're older. I like this message and I don't know if it was intended or not, but especially for Shep it must feel good to enjoy playful times like these, since he usually has to worry about so much difficult and painful stuff. Thank you for this wonderful piece of art :-)
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2013  Student General Artist
you're very welcome :)

Beautifully said and very true =)

And quite frankly: Your art has to be among the most stunning I've ever seen! <3 :)
Rhapsody4u Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You are simply outstanding! Or maybe they are also the subjects portrayed? mmmhhh ... : D I love it!
silverhunteress Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013
I think what I like the most about this is it makes me think of Alistair's figurines from Dragon Age (because you KNOW he played with those things in his tent!) and seeing Shepard be that lighthearted is rewarding, poor guy deserved so many breaks.
cardinalboy Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013
From someone who works in the feature animation industry, I have to tell you that you are an incredibly talented artist with an extremely bright future ahead! I absolutely adore your mShenko art and hope you continue making more!
ilikeshinyobjects Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
do tell me how this DLC turns out....I'm reluctant to even look forward to it. I've lost all faith in BioWare... :I
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Student General Artist
It was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced.
ilikeshinyobjects Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
well then. I'll put some money on my XBL and buy it.
Jason-de-LEpee Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I KNOW, RIGHT?! It was so character-driven that I drank it in and nearly got as drunk as Grunt in the shower! And there was just the silliest little things that just made me laugh; pizza delivery volus for one.

But the sweetest thing was the little private time Shepard had with Kaidan. It was something like from a fantastic fanfic! Because of it, I'm so replaying this profile again just so I can see it all over again!
CastilloRA Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013
I loved it. The "Citadel" DLC combined with MrFob's "MEHEM" (Mass Effect Happy Emding Mod) defintely eases the melancholy of knowing that this was the last new adventure in my BroShep's story. The romance scene with Kaidan was so good I went back and replayed it so I could see both the 'sweet' and 'smexy' outcomes.
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Student General Artist
the smexy outcome is def the right choice, I chose sweet the first time because I wanted cuddling but it didn't have any unfortunately.
Jason-de-LEpee Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I didn't choose that one...guess I'll have to play it all over again to see now LOL.
Hedgey Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Student Digital Artist
how lovely!
ZehnWaters Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013
I can just see it:
Shepard: (Using the Reaper model) I'm Harbinger! Resistance is futile! The Cycle must continue! (Bringing in the Normandy model) Not a chance! I'm commander Shepard and I'll stop you with my THANIX CANNONS! Pshew! Pshew! (Using Harbinger) GAH! Bleh! BSKEW!

Kaidan: ...You're such a dork.
WolfSpirit292 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
<3 I can so picture this happening too. I admit to wanting to be able to play with all my models. And that space hamster.
JelenaEllethil Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I feel the same. Forget every other LI. Kaidan is the perfect guy. :love: Kind of wish you could find a guy like him in real life. :)
roivasff14 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013
For my shep, Kaidan is the only one ever too, thx a lot for your artwork
Letticiae Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013
Aww! So cute!
godofimagination Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013
Are you sure you're OK man?
canius Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
ahHA!!! PROOF! that Shepard DOES take out those model ships to play with!
Trishata96 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Damn, I need to thank you for making me love Mshep and Kaidan pairings. Every piece of Shep/Kaidan art of yours is touching. Kaidan is now the only man for both my femshep and msheps.
