Post Leviathan, Shepard's Cabin sketch by AndrewRyanArt Post Leviathan, Shepard's Cabin sketch by AndrewRyanArt
Ok so I'm officially turning into that weird guy who draws too much Kaidan/Shep so I'll be taking a break from them for awhile, besides I really want to finish the dragon effect series asap so gotta focus on that. Still though I played Leviathan and had a little story going in my head of what happened the night after completing the mission (similar to how Liara visited Shepard's cabin after lair of the shadow broker).

Post Leviathan, Shepard’s cabin

Kaidan and Shepard climbed into bed, both exhausted from the days trials. They hadn’t said much to one another since returning from the mission, having been incredibly busy all afternoon informing the galaxy that they’d actually discovered and enlisted the aid of the very beings responsible for creating reapers. A new development in the war that finally offered some hope of possible victory and the first bit of good news to come their way in weeks.

Shepard pulled the covers up and turned to Kaidan, noticing a look of concern on the major’s face.

“Uh oh, I’m in trouble aren’t I?” Shepard said, following with a sly smirk as he met Kaidan’s focused gaze.

“That was reckless Shepard, you really had me worried there. Watching you climb into that Mech and slip beneath the waves, not knowing if you’d come back up…I meant it when I said never do that again.”

“Heh, told you I’d be fine Kaidan. Besides remember Virmire when you wanted to blow yourself up with that nuke? Oh and let’s not forget Mars when I came so close to losing you that I nearly had a heart attack.”

Shepard smiled, pulling Kaidan closer. Determined to keep the mood lighthearted and besides teasing Kaidan was just too much fun.

“Ok point taken, but Shepard you seem to have forgotten that I actually DID lose you already and I’m not letting it happen again.” letting out a sigh Kaidan looked at Shepard with pleading eyes, “So please, in the future try and avoid running headfirst into life-threatening situations by yourself.”

Kaidan’s expression turned from serious to relaxed. “At least if I’m with you I can save your ass if things get choppy.”

Shepard laughed,

“I’m sorry, didn’t mean to make you worry, promise I’ll make it up to you.”

“Oh really?” Kaidan asked, forming a seductive grin. “Well you can start right now.”

Taking his cue Shepard leaned in and kissed Kaidan slow and passionately, a tender moment that reminded each of them just how lucky they were to have one another. Tired as they were this was one night that neither of them would be taking for granted.

This is excellent, the shadows are well done, and the shape of the two characters are correctly proportioned and aligned right, to the point its realistic, and its like looking at a photo without texture and edited lines.

Well done! this is the kind of art i want get up to.

Lovely and inspiring.  The moment after Leviathan ends always calls out for a story.

I forgot about this important OTP until I saw you featured on Kotaku today.  As a result I went in and binged on it in your gallery.  Beautiful work and as far as I'm concerned you can obsess over it all you want and I'll eat it all up.  <3

This is my favorite deviation of all the art I've seen on here by far...which is saying something. The drawing itself is simply amazing... but the way you showed off the intamacy, the mix of force and tenderness in their hands, the longing and love in their faces. It's just too much not to instantly love. The monochromatic color scheme is great too, getting a peek into what happens at night in the privacy of their cabin. . . . It's just so beautiful /holdsbacktear ( ´∩')

This is one of my favorites. I find myself coming back here a lot to just take in the beauty and passion found here. The way they are holding each other, the arch of the eyebrows and lips..just gorgeous. It's amazing art like this that confirms that mShenko is indeed one of the best things that has ever happened to me.

Thank you for your time and or sharing these with us. Means a lot to me as I'm sure it does to you.

Though Levianthan DLC didn't blow my mind away, I enjoyed the little romantic part between my Maleshep and Kaidan.

You're ...You're... FLIRTING WITH ME AREN'tcha?!

*swoon* hahahha! Love it! Just love it my dear boy!

Listen if it's ok with you- I'd like to Cosplay Blood Dragon Shepard. However I'd like some more references for him. Would it be cheeky to do a 360 4/panel (front-left-back-right) artwork of him at some point?

Otherwise I'm probably going to go crazy and use artistic listening for the rest of the outfit (including putting the Spectre or N7 elite logo on the cape )

Oh p.s.

Raphael is going to wear Kaidan's armour ^_^ hopefully NyCC

If he does that would make my life complete since I live in New York. Also I didn't really change Shepard's blood dragon armor from the original armor in dragon age origins. The main difference is I added a black cape and didn't include all the red lights. [link] here is a link to the front and back design of the blood dragon armor set.

I see the similarities now then ^_^ I'll probably mix in a couple of Blood Dragon Armour aspects from both to see what works out well ^_^

Start a donation pool, I'm sure there are people willing to help out. I could post a link on the Kaidan forum of the bioware social network and I know people there along with myself would be willing to donate.

Hi! Hello it's nice to see that your imagination has no limits. I really like your story then you've described after the events of the Leviathan. Very romantic in its simplicity. Last but not least your design surrounds perfectly the emotion you want to convey. Great as always. :)
Oh I forgot, I just finished my painting I was working on for some time and will post on my wall. If you have time would you give it a look. I hope you like the genre. And I'd be curious to hear constructive criticism if you want to do. Hello and thank you.

I'm not into sci-fi at all, but maybe Mass Effect will be my exception, 'cause of this picture :meow:

Great job done; just a simple moves with tablet in Sai and here we got a sexy art~

oh believe me when I say sci-fi and futuristic RPG's mixed with FPS and that kind of things were never my thing...oh well maybe Doom way back on when I was still learning to use a PC...but ME changed that, a series so well done with such real characters...but don't take my word, try it and I promise you'll find it hard to let it go
