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.
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.
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.
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.
This is absolutely gorgeous--it's exactly what I picture when I think of the afterlife Mordin may have gone happily to, perhaps meeting Thane on his way. The colors, shapes, and light work together brilliantly.
I love the composition, first off. There's a clear focal point in the foreground and then it draws the eye to the horizon, which is nearly indistinct from the sky, rife with symbolism. I'm sure you had that in mind, though. I have to agree with other critiques about that flashy star, it's nice in a cutesy way, but I think it detracts from the viewer contemplating that far place WITH Mordin. I really like how clear an image this is, how it conveys feelings so easily, you can almost hear the ocean if you squint a bit.
Absolutely beautiful. Mordin was one of the best ME characters and perhaps one my favorite characters of all time. I love the colors in this and the ever vanishing horizon is fantastic. There's a sort of beauty to the every beginning / every ending feel of the piece. Thank you a thousand times over for this!
*sniff* Afterlife. Very unscientific. Also find irony in dying in a fire and awakening at the sea. Might be able to discover human's concept of the soul... Human... Shepard. Yes, Remember it clearly now... Not to worry. Have the greatest of confidence in Shepard. Will definitely win against Reapers.
Ah yes, seashells. Need to harvest a few specimens to study. Might be able to find new ways of consumption by the time the others arrive.
I'm crying...your comment and the image combined managed to bring me to tears yet again...why do they have to kill off so many of the characters? I know they want us to get a sense of what war is really like but I just...
"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
