A Photographer on the Citadel

In a quite part of the Citadel Wards, in a small alley known only to the locals lies a studio.
Here lives and works a photographer who boldly defies all contemporary holographic technologies, relying instead on ancient human devices based on crude mechanics and chemistry to capture his motifs.

Now - be it by chance or by purpose - some of the greatest heroes of our time found their way into that studio to stand before the camera...

(The complete series can be found here: pineappletree.deviantart.com/g…)


The "Bla bla bla" part

Bringing "classic", analogue b&w photography to the ME universe was the initial idea for the picture.

And since I really liked how it turned out, I decided to make it whole series of "photographies" that will probably feature not "only" Liara but other ME characters as well.
At least I have quite a few ideas for some of them , I'd like to try out in the future...


The technical stuff

All pictures of this series are based on character models and textures extracted directly from Mass Effect 3's game files and modified by me where I deemed it necessary.
Posing, lighting, rendering were done in 3dsMAX + V-Ray.
Background, composing, postprocessing in PS.

Definitely part of the idea for the series.

No concrete plans at this moment, though...

it's just that the pose really fits her. normally I'd prefer her not being totally nude, but this is more than tastefully done. just wow =)

Yeah, I prefer natural sexyness over the one that tries to jump in your face, screaming!

Most of the time at least ... ;)

right, that's what I was trying to say! those overtly "sexy" poses tend to annoy me or put me off most of the time. this one looks just so natural =)

I originally saw the profile shot you did and saw you had done more in the series, and I just wanted to say, on this piece in particular how nice it is to see such a tasteful and classic nude of Liara.
It really works!
The pose and lighting is amazing, really good job:]

I would honestly love to see you do a similar shoot with Aria, she has an amazing angular face that would really benefit from strong lighting like this!

Aria would be interesting to work with indeed. Didn't think about her before, but it's a great idea actually.
Will add her to my list of characters I'd like to 'photograph' in the future :)

Awesome^_^ Glad you think so too, would be a double win for me personally, as she is hands down my favourite female character from the ME universe.

I'd love to see what you do with her, the way you have posed Liara and use of lighting has certainly got me inspired to think of how Aria would best be portrayed.

Look forward to future sets, no matter who they are though:] All the best!

I think there's something just perfect about Liara from a classical sense.

Despite some smaller niggles, I'd say BW did a superb job on her overall design.

Though for some reason I always got the impression Asari wouldn't have nipples. But it's still an excellent piece.
Reply
:iconpineappletree:
pineappletree Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, maybe that's because the original model in the game doesn't have nipples (nor genitalia for that matter)? 'Protect the children' and all that. And I think some fanfics have tried to built on that idea.

Certainly not an uninteresting thought, but the big question is: Why would Asari have breasts at all in that case?

Haha, oh yes!

Now couple that thought with the concept of mind-sex, where the orgasm of one partner directly and immideately reverberates in the nervous system of the other ... :omfg:
