"'We could test your reach and my flexibility' she says. As if my dreams didn't keep me up enough as is," Garrus grumbled to himself.


Somehow I doubt Garrus got a lot of sleep after that conversation with Shepard.

I think that its quite interesting the way that you drew Shepard here. I suppose it makes sense that some of her features look Turian in his dream, since Garrus has never seen her nude.

love it
Kramania Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013
When I saw this it broke my heart because it struck me as the dream he would be having post-ME3. The ending left me depressed for days. Of course I cried like a baby when Duncan - oops. No DAO...
I'm such a softy.
Love this!

Never knew you had a weakness for men with scars. I remember the first time I went thru that conversation in ME2... I was blushing like a fiend when Shepard talked about the reach and flexibility and was like GAh poor Garrus! Mr. Suave and Awkward! He probably can't breathe! hahahaha this is a great pic!

I love the intimacy between them and color contrast. Well done!
Nanahuatli Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
I got the same impression. XD Especially with that last seductive look she gave him when she left. Wet dreams for Garrus!
fugimoto Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012

I always like to imagine what it must have been like to 'be in a great place for optimizing firing algorithms' lol!!!

You know, this art is heartbreaking.

i didnt get a whole lot of sleep myself
at first i didnt understand what she meant with the whole reach and flexibilty but that night i was like "oh" =O i didnt even know he was romanceable i got to the romance scene and i was like =O

anyway nice art i can see him with that dream
SkarmoryThePG Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012
love it. Very neat. And I love her scars.
CMY187 Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012 now you're going for comedy. And like the other categories, you really delivered well.
Poor Garrus. I have seen the youtube video of all the romancing dialogue for Garrus and Shepard in ME2. Shepard really came off as knowing Garrus well enough to predict his reaction. She also probably knew that she would be depriving him of sleep with those suggestions.

It kind of brings out another side of Shepard; one that Garrus was COMPLETELY unprepared for. It was great of you to explore that stage, with Garrus still trying to come to terms with the realization that Shepard, well, to put it bluntly, has the hots for him.
I especially liked the purplish "swirl" surrounding the dream-image. Kind of symbolizes the...let's call it...concept of Garrus's thoughts.
At first it was all about friendship and respect. But now...dammit...he can never look at or think of her the same way again...poor Garrus...
nichan Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
Oh wow - this looks great~! I love how the coloring/details flow together nicely. ^^
BlazeDrgn Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2011
love it :) from the dream to waking and how Shepard's arm flows to Turian, ah the dreams that mess with you like this... I think Garrus might need a cold shower or two X)
PrototypeB Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah cuz when Garrus is totally in a great place to optimize firing algorithms. :3
karibu0000 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011
brilliantly done!
I love the idea, that his visions keep him awake at night and make him kinda nervous - it makes our beloved smooth talker even more loveable! :heart:
AmbrosiaJade Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2011
Ooh, lovely! I love Garrus' silhouette. Very pretty. ;D
RandomAccountOfDOOM Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011
This is beautiful!
Caelienne Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
That is the most touching picture of them fitting so perfectly. Even if they are different species. Thank you very much for making my day complete:) You are great artist!
admiral-squee Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2010
Cute pic. Really well done.

Poor Garrus does not understand human anatomy. He's a winner, he is.
Arwing Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Student Writer
Well this is a very touching piece with a little bit of a chuckle thrown in. The space backdrop was a nice touch as it highlights the beauty of the moment. And I believe that Shep being part turian sorta shows that Shepard has turian tpe ideals and he must sorta see her as a turian. That or his having an erotic fantasy. But he looks a little flustered at what he's just drwamt. still I guess he would sleep in the battery so he ca keep to himself but also ready at a moments notice. still a very sweet idea. A fave from me.
LittleWolfHands Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is so good.
drawanon Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, this is so beautiful! I love how you made Shep halfway morph into a turian in his dream. Kind of like some people draw garrus, very humanlike. Great seeing him fantasizing about Shep in a likewise way^^ Instant fave!

And I'm bettin he really didnt get much more sleep after that XD
Onepiecelover Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2010
Why does Shepard have a turian hand?
Armesan Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
The top image is meant to be a dream, the lower image is Garrus waking up and remembering it. In dreams, our brains do very strange things to us sometimes.
Onepiecelover Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2010
ooohhhh That very true cuz I have had messed up dreams and I wake and I go ".....O_o What the hell was that all about?!"
TheMistressSpawn Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2010
Oo, I love this! The lighting and the background on the dream portion is lovely, as is the lower part, though I laughed when I pictured Garrus waking up and wondering whether that was best or worst dream of his life. xD
