It is emotional & touching. You would think at first that this was a picture of a vacation but then once you know the story then it turns poignant, I can see the stars in the horizon to REALLY mean something.
I have to say the pose & art moved me. I think it is like mourning the loss of a great character.
I can just imagine him staring into the stars knowing what is happening.
Does he know that he has passed on? That he is in heaven? The stance gives me a clue that maybe he does yet doesn't. Like he is looking onward knowing he is dreaming... or have passed on.

Well I give it a high rating because it made me cry... not allot of art does that for me.
What do you think?

easily one of the most beautiful things that i've seen, its simple but its unique and it portrays the exact thoughts hopes and feelings of the players as Mordin sacraficed his life for the genophage. this is what i hope he would be doing in his afterlife and this captures it beautifully. i really like this and i'm absolutely going to see if i can view some of her other work as well because this is truly what art is, conveys a nice beautiful meaning with simple yet impressive artistry. i love this peice of work, it is aboslutely gorgeous.

I found this very moving.  It even inspired a fic I'm working my way through at the moment.  I read one of the comments below and agree whole-heartedly...the shooting star is the Normandy.

Such gorgeous blues... I am really blown away from the image here. That with the fandom feels from such a series as Mass Effect. It just takes my breath away. I am so much a part of what I'm seeing it just takes my breath away. Gorgeous work.

I really, really like this picture, especially if you've played Mass Effect 3, you know exactly what it means. This is just beautifully colored and thought out. And I always enjoyed Mordin, he was such a great character. And had one of the saddest, heroic, and most memorable deaths. This picture makes me think of his little last words about the seashells. I find this deep.

But you have absolutely nailed this.... this image is so beautiful :D :) :D :)

I choose to look at that "star" as a working Mass Relay flinging the Normandy into the far reaches of the unknown.

Such a simple design, yet filled with nuance and wonder. As a huge fan of the Mass Effect Universe, this pulls on all the right emotions brilliantly. Adding this to my favourites, and wishing you Kudos and Bluebells for a fantastic piece of art.
