Snack Time by AndrewRyanArt Snack Time by AndrewRyanArt
Beyond all odds Shepard had beaten the Reapers and saved the galaxy, but getting hospital food that didnít taste like vorcha dung still proved to be an impossible task.

(Kaidanís smiling because heís been there)

I feel his pain. Hospital food is the pits, it's like they say it's healthy and I'm wondering in what way.
I've seen your art around dA but never really stopped to look and for that I must apologize. You're art is amazing and I wished I could see more of gay male-Shep. I'm a bi guy myself and I love Thane. So seeing this is really really nice. Thanks for putting it on here for others to see. :) Now I'm going to go to your gallery.

While I don't play as gay Mshep, but he and Kaidan have the best relationship, Steve seems like he's jumping in to a relationship to soon,like he's trying to replace his husband. Kaidan however he knows Shepard and has seen him at his best and worst and yet he learns he truly cares about shep. They seem to have the most organic relationship built on friendship trust and experience.

I love these "Get better" wishes on Shepīs cast, as well the Blasto TV ad in the background. 
Nice ideas.

Blasto 6 is cracking me up.  Great easter egg.  Still, having been blown apart myself in a helicopter crash, just the thought of him trying to eat while his face hurts, makes my face hurt.

I love the details on the cast! That's totally awesome and I as well love the pair, save Kaidan always, I just can't ever bring myself to hurt him. That scene in the second game brings tears sometimes still.

Great work as always!

On the bright side he gets to watch Blasto 6.

That's really great, I like your style.
nightchildmoonchild Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Aww, I love how touching this is, be it Kaidan's concern for Shepard, the names of Shepard's friends on his cast, and the fact that Grunt spelled his name in the way a child would.

The cast with signing was a great idea!
KatsumiA Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
I love your work so much, seriously... =) It makes me smile and you catch Kaidan so well! I can imagine him at Shepard's side from moment 1, till you finally get out of bed again. And this is my canon-ending, definitely :)

I'm not gonna lie of all people Kaiden was the last I'd romance good for friends not for love interests... But your art is fantastic and deserves all the appreciation it gets no matter who's gettin it. :)

You have all my respect and admiration, I think you've expressed very well this scene so full of pathos and detail. You are always the best! But you know that already right? :-) Thank you for sharing your thoughts! ;-)
marcc-us Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013   Digital Artist
Ahh I'll forever be in love with your mass effect art. Yours is the standard I aim for when I paint my own, actually =)
Great work on their expressions and the setting..but you probably hear it all enough, so I won't go on, haha
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Student General Artist
Well I'm flattered that anyone would ever try to aim to meet my humble talent level so thanks Marcus :)

Don't you miss the day when you could just slap some medi-gel on a life threatening injury and everything was fine?
gambitismylover Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Though I do love the expressions (and of course, the signed cast is absolutely adorable), I just wanted to say that I love the way you portrayed the background. The setting looks just like it does in the game and shading looks great. I particularly like the screens and the plant. That may be a weird thing to notice, but it caught my eye. Great work!!
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Student General Artist
I loaded up single player and walked around huerta memorial for reference so thanks for noticing :D
