don’t judge me this is my way of coping
a girl can draw pathetic wish fulfillment fantasies if she wants
i was originally going to add mordin combing for seashells in the background but even i could tell that would be too maudlin
also i don’t know why i thought it would be a good idea to draw a turian in flip flops
also also i imagine the stroller was repurposed from the hammerhead floaty hovery thing
So here is hoodie_gypsy’s baby Krogan.
I think I love this artist…
I would call you my first born, but he went to the Void before he had the chance to draw breath. We could pave all the continents of this blasted world threefold deep in the bodies of the ones who never even opened their eyes. Neither are you my second born. The clansmen relish their sons, the continuity of blood. They fought over me before I knew even myself.
Things are changing. Already some clansmen clamor for revenge. But they must learn to dig, to build, to create. They will grumble and fight, they will strut and demand, drunk of their new bloodlines. I must teach my sisters to speak and be heard. To shout and headbutt if necessary.
I will teach you patience, my daughter. I will teach you the power of “no”.
Will I send you to the caves one day, my daughter, to live or die in seven days? I do not yet know. I gave away my crystal to one who needed its light. You would have to find your own. I gave it to a… hero.
We already have many words for hero, figures of war and slaughter to a one. The human was also a slaughterer, but even so frail and brief she still saw in us what no other would dare. What none but the long dead believed. A hope so fragile you could not speak of it too loudly or risk loosing it in the wind. But she spoke, my daughter, fought and bled and told truths when lies would have served her better.
Wrex can bluster and thump his chest. Shout about his heroes. Let him. I will whisper to you, my first daughter, the secret histories, of trees and rivers and lives and the power of words. I will tell you of the human who pulled us from the Void.
Heroes we have aplenty. For Shepard, I will call you Hope.
I think he has Joker’s eyes.
Saw this on the BSN Liara thread, so much great art there but had to post this.
Credit to hoodie_gypsy, if they have a dA let me know and I’ll link it but couldn’t see one, so that’s their username on the BSN, the post also said they were doing a baby Krogan one as well!
Edit - I think this might be the artists personal site.
edit: the intial link that I added when I reblogged was not the artist’s deviantart and has been removed.
Comfort art for myself after playing ME3. Mordin will always be my favorite out of the lot.
It’s Grunt. Jr !
Mama Shepard and Papa Vakarian would be so proud!
AND YES THEY DID SURVIVE THE WAR, LIVED SOMEWHERE WARM AND HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
