commission: War Stories by Kobb commission: War Stories by Kobb
Aaand here's another commission, this one from off dA. It was for an admin on the Mass Effect RP forum I'm on, where due to conflicts between RP canon and game canon, we had to play out our own version of ME3. Canon details were brought in wherever appropriate (Kalros, etc) but we got to have a little fun.

This is a scene from the postwar period, which is about to get off the ground. Imperial Warmaster Ravanor Xarak (of the fledgling Krogan Empire) waxes eloquent about the battle of Palaven to some turian kiddies in Cipitrine, Palaven's capital city. Behind them is a statue that was erected to honor the Empire's contributions: a krogan carrying a Warp Hammer (we ninja'd the Krogan Warlord multiplayer character on that account, hah).

For this piece, I tried painting in black and white first and then overlaying color, which is a technique I'd never tried. The results were pretty okay! I'll have to keep doing it and see if I can get better. :strong:

I can actually see that happening in the story, and also have Garrus on his spot where he beat Shepard at sniper rifle shooting, holding his gun.

This really shows some deep emotion, dude, I think you got it spot on, well done. :D

That Hammer is sooo small...why?
Kobb Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
It's really not that small, compared to historical warhammers. Now, if you mean it isn't as chunky as the hammer Bioware gave the krogan Warlord in ME3 multiplayer... well, the fella who ordered this commission created his Warp Hammer before an official "biotic hammer" was ever released. ;)

Oh. Ok, if he wanted...

Well, it wasn't a matter of the commissioner "wanting" something different. Bioware's krogan hammer simply didn't exist when I drew this piece, so it was up to me to design it based on the written concept. I started with actual (human) warhammers and tried to make it feel like it had similar shapes to the buildings in the in-game krogan ruins. c:
