Garrus Vakarian by Banni-Whitemane Garrus Vakarian by Banni-Whitemane
GarrusmotherfuckingVakarian.

Never. Again.

Has Banni ever expressed how much she hates armour?
Because Banni hates armour.

And WHY does she always fall for for the guys in armour?
Because armour is sexy? Pft. Probably.

I think I have a thing for turians. I seriously get a mini-crush on every single one I meet. And yes, that includes Saren.

But this guy? All my love for this guy.
But I am NEVER doing this again. I just...do you know how many attempts it took me to get him to look right?!
EIGHTEEN!
For the first seven goes he didn't even look turian. Four times he ended up looking like Primarch Victus.

And that collar. Andraste's great flaming arse, I take back every bad word I said about Fenris's armour being a pain in the ass to do. Garrus is ten times worse. Big expanses of metal I don't know what to do with. Little intricate details I'm fine with but give me an open space and I'm lost.

Ugh.

And of course; Garrus, turians and the Mass Effect universe belong to BioWare.

EDIT: 200+ favs?! I just...wow. Wow. Really. Thank you all so much :love:

Dude, I feel your pain, I'm drawing him right now and 7 hours in, I still haven't finished. Never again sounds about right.

I feel your pain with armor, but I totally agree, men in armor is SEXY. xD
I love this, though, there is ONE thing missing, and that's Garrus' Archangel squad members' names on his visor.. Although, that would be hard to do..and it's not a well known factoid about him.. ANYWAY, is it just me or does Garrus' awkward flirting make your heart melt a little and your inner little girl squee with joy? D8
; .; I shall fav this now..<3

Actually, the squad names were engraved on what I call the MKII visor he wore in ME2. He has since upgraded to the MKIII (as pictured here) and seeing as he's moved on from his little stint on Omega, I doubt he re-done the engravings. If anything, I would say that he's likely to engrave 'Shepard' into it, especially if she's in a romance with him:D

OH! I completely forgot about that.. I just get distracted by the dazzling glow of the shiny visor that I tend to be blind to which one it is.. xD *Failbot*
But, yeah, I could see him doing that for Shepard. Garrus seems to be one of those guys who would do just about anything for his woman.

As a labour of love, it came out perfectly. Further proof of my personal philosophy that nothing worth doing is ever easy.

Aye it's cute kitty alien man! Sorry, old habit. When I first saw him, his nose... and the bend of his upper lips reminded so much of a feline. So the name stuck. Beautiful artwork, you did Mr. Vakarian great justice.

I have a bad habit of just watching his nose twitch throughout a conversation and then having to reload it because I haven't been listening to what they were saying.

This is amazing! Looks just like him! And I feel your pain, I did two drawings of Garrus, one of the scarred side of his face and the other with him in armor. After each I was like "NEVER AGAIN!" But I doubt I can stop drawing that damn turian, I'm already planning a third.

I think the problem with Garrus is that he's a bit too addictive. There's just...something about that damn turian that pulls you in. A bit like a black hole.

he makes me giggle every time he's on screen. in a ridiculous, flirty, girly way. which is strange. cuz i don't giggle.

i know how you feel about the drawing him thing. i've gone through about half a sketchbook and i still haven't gotten it right. damn turians and their faces.

this looks great though.

I know that feeling. When he first walked on screen in ME3 I was literally grinning from ear to ear. I got a funny look from my dad.

You wouldn't think they were that complex to draw though...

my dad used to look at me funny, but now he just sighs XD

i know...they look fairly simple until you start trying to draw them. then it's like 'wtf is this!??!'
