ME: Breaking the Rules by Armesan ME: Breaking the Rules by Armesan
Finally, a picture of my lesser seen secondary male Shepard that doesn't suck. I'm terrible at drawing guys. Also, Ash.

My mental story for this theme is that he doesn't trust easily. (He's the renegade Shep). So for him he's breaking his personal rule of trusting another person, and Ash is breaking the Alliance's rule of "no fraternizing".

I like it, I'm always grateful to see fair and respectful depictions of Ashley in this otherwise bleak hate filled internet.

Especially ones as emotional and well drawn as this.

Rare to see art of Ash, rarer to see her romance with Shepard. Thank you for making this; always nice to see more variety. It's also an interesting mirror image to your depictions (and many others) of the Garrus "headbump".

The dark atmosphere and facial expressions make them look very tired, maybe weary from all they've endured, and are finally breaking their barriers, seeking refuge in each others' embrace. I also like the details on their hair and the armor on their hands. Very intense, somber work.

Huh, a renegade Shepard, huh?

I wonder how he reacts to dying. Goes Paragon, or stays Renegade...?

And yeah, I'm actually quite fond of Ash as a character; sure, she's a xenophobe, but apart from that she's actually a pretty swell girl. So yeah, fun times are had.
