Zaeed meets with Shepard at Purgatory for ME3.

Garrus was the only one who slightly interested me for a love interest for the mass effect series. I was upset that Zaeed wasn't an option for those not interested in young blokes.

Used lineart as a base and basically colored between the lines in photoshop cs5.1. Shep is a lefty for this picture because it was too late to swap it around when I realised it was wrong.

I have never really thought about the pairing before. It is pretty sweet. :)

I get that not everyone can be LI, especially Zaeed since DLC... but come on! If the romances were more varied that'd be great. I love Zaeed too!

Great work! I like their contrasting expressions. It makes me wonder what sort of direction could have been taken, if Zaeed was a romance option. It's an intriguing prospect, at the very least.

I like a guy with scars. That's why I love both Garrus and Zaeed, and share your disappointment! :( Love your picture here, it almost looks like he didn't actually see that coming. Surprise is the only thing I'll warrant that gets under his skin, and he isn't surprised by much. ;)
I've written (and now vow to finish once my thesis is over) a fanfic but my FemShep isn't renegade... she's paragon. Extra fights and tension, with the pair of them muddling through and learning from each other. I vow to finish it in memory of the man behind the voice of the character I fell in love with. May he rest in peace.

I like the idea that he may have been surprised by sheps sudden affection.

Need more Femshep and Zaeed fanfic. There isn't enough well written ones out there. :)

Wow, great picture! The coloring is awesome and must have taken forever.

I must admit Zaeed would never be a romance choice for my Shep, but It's neat that there are some Femsheps who like him ^^.

I finished this one very quickly which is unusual for me. It took about a week from start to finish. Much better than my usual 6months to 2years I normally take. :)

Don't suppose you do commissions?

this is a really good art piece. I like the expression on Shepard, and the fact that they both have their weapons drawn. Its almost like a quiet moment before a storm is about to hit. Whether or not it was intentional.

The DLC characters were my favorites, next to Garrus. I was kinda disappointed to see how limited they were in the game, but that's what makes art like this even better.

Wow, it's a really nice picture, you did a very detailed work on the background.
Their face also turn out great, I like how Shepard closes her eyes while Zaed is still looking at her, maybe surprised. =)

I think the faces and the background were my favorite parts. I normally hate drawing faces.
