Zaeed Massani

So here is another of my Mass Effect fan art - a head portrait of Zaeed Massani :)  Like the other pieces, I drew this with pencils and later coloured it in Photoshop.  Some 'work in progress' photos below:

There's not a whole lot to say about this one.  It did take me ages to find time to actually colour it though (I drew this last summer!).  I  really wanted to include Zaeed's armour.  In the end though, I decided to leave it out completely and just focus on his face.  I also didn't want to obscure his Blue Suns tattoo, which is an important part of his story.

The drawing itself was intended as a lighting study.  Originally I wanted this portrait to be much darker, with just a beam of light from above illuminating the side of his face and scar.  But with heavier shadows, a lot of the facial features and form were lost. So I scrapped that idea and lightened everything again.

And that's that :) 

Thanks for reading!
