Mass Effect: Need by Armesan Mass Effect: Need by Armesan
EDIT: Updated version here - [link]

"Everyone needs to believe that I'm still the same. That the Commander Shepard who died two years ago has returned unscathed from the abyss.

The truth is, I'm not the same. But for the sake of my people, my crew, they can't know that I am shaken, uncertain......scared.

They need me to be strong. They need a leader who doesn't show fear. So for them, I will keep my uncertainties to myself, and be what they need."

-----

Yep, more Mass Effect. I always thought Shepard was a bit too accepting of the whole back-from-the-dead thing. This is my foray into why that is.


DO NOT COPY, TRACE, STEAL, USE WITHOUT PERMISSION, ETC
Mass Effect (c) Bioware

EDIT: Holy crap thank you all for your comments and favs :D. They really mean a lot. Especially when attempting to do the more emotional and deep pieces. Many, many thanks

Yep
Shepherd was the only one who could do what needed to be done and she knew it. She keep it together for the people she had already given her life to save.
Your art is what I felt like after thessia

Exactly what I thought about my Shep when she came back. Man, you're doing great with the deep pieces. Good work.

In about 75 words, you gave more than Bioware did in a whole game.  Excellent work.

I love the description. I can actually see femshep saying it. In my mind, I made my Shepard feel exactly like this... because I felt like she would have been doubtful of herself but she knew her crew looked to her for guidance, and Cerberus was looking for the "old" Shepard to lead the mission, yet she was unsure of herself, but she hid it from everyone. She needed to be what they needed her to be.

That's the magic of Mass Effect, you can project your own emotions and opinions into a character. I know I would have felt exactly like this if I were in such a strange position.

The art itself is good, it definitely conveys emotion ... but the description really makes it perfect. You ever have one of those moments wear you read something and it "sounds" like a character or person's voice in your head? Yup. Femshep's voice came through loud and clear.
