Mass Effect Felicia Day oil painting

I am pretty much finished now. Here’s a close up of the repainted face which I am now happy with. Felicia has been through many faces and hairstyles to get to this point 🙂

Looking at the canvas it’s impossible to tell what has gone on in the previous layers of paint. I had scratched off any build up of dry paint from before so it’s all smooth.

Latest update number 14. Fireballs painted into the sky 3 days before the Meteor flew through the Russian sky. Not saying I predicted it but… 😀 Work done on the gun and armour also.

Latest update number 13. Distractions have kept me away but I’m back and close to the finishing line. The most fun part for me is finishing off the painting with detail and lighting. I’ve started on the armour now.

After a break over the festive season I’m painting again 😀

Here’s the latest progress on the Felicia Day Mass Effect oil painting. I’ve started on the background now and added a new character Thane. I’m hoping to push on and get this finished within the next week.

Miranda – Mass Effect painting

I think this is finished now. This is Miranda on Illium. Miranda is a character from the Mass Effect series of games. The background scene is from a balcony overlooking a city on Illium, a planet that features in Mass Effect 2. Facial reference from images of actress Yvonne Strahovski were used. Yvonne is the actress who played the voice of Miranda and the character is also modelled on her likeness in the games.

I started off with a pencil drawing of the character. Once scanned onto the computer I painted in the rest. When playing Mass Effect 2 there are many WOW moments when you take in the scenery. For me walking around the city on this planet I would spend a lot of time looking over the balconies onto the cityscape below. Bioware did a really good job on the visuals here! The reason I have done this painting is in appreciation of Mass Effect, the artists behind it and the beautiful Yvonne Strahovski. I couldn’t really go wrong making this one look pretty 😛

I’m creating a larger wallpaper version for people to download to use as their desktop background this weekend 😀

Seth Green gave me a Ben & Jerry’s

Last week I saw Seth Green in San Diego giving out free goodies from an ice cream van. Here is a snap of him handing over a tasty treat to me. Thanks Seth, it was just what I needed on a hot day at SDCC!

In addition to appearing in many of my favourite Films & TV shows Seth is the voice of Joker in the Mass Effect series of games which I am also a big fan of!
