i miss them all (da:o spoilers) by CommanderKip
i miss them all (da:o spoilers)
Blurry terrible photograph wow. Can't wait to get home and have access to my scanner. Also legs are hard?

So yeah, that part sucked. Don't get me wrong, Duncan killing that ogre was one of the coolest things I'd ever seen, but I was still super pissed that he and Cailan had to die so early. Especially because if you start as a dwarf commoner, Duncan is literally the first person who is nice to you in the entire game. Cailan is the second. (Leske doesn't count because he's gross.) Anyway, I sorta wanted a scene where the Warden comes out of Flemeth and Morrigan's hut, sees Alistair moping on a log or whatever, and they just sort of quietly bond over their loss for a minute.

There's So Much Energy In Us by CommanderKip
There's So Much Energy In Us
Huge huuuge file, sorry!

So yeah I draw Jack and Miranda a lot. My boyfriend and I roleplay them pretty extensively, and we've had fun writing them going from "I literally hate your guts" to "god why are you hot I still hate you though" to "crap the sex is really good and also I think I have feelings" to made-up headcanon backstory side missions where some creep from Jack's past captures her while she's trying to kill him and Miranda has to come rescue her... which leads to Miranda saying "I love you" while they're trapped in an escape pod and Jack panicking and telling her to take it back even though she's pretty sure she feels the same way... and also them spending the two hours in the Omega-4 Relay crying and holding each other because they don't want to lose each other but they know they're probably not going to survive and Jack finally working up the courage to say "I love you too"... and also Shepard letting Miranda do the biotic barrier during the suicide mission and Miranda collapsing and Jack screaming her name and carrying her to safety while maintaining the barrier... and also the two of them running away together after the suicide mission and having noncanon adventures between ME2 and ME3 (the ones where Jack has the mid-length androgynous haircut take place in this period). They're just such an interesting couple with so many layers of mental, physical and emotional trauma to work through, and Miranda gets so embarrassed when Jack flirts with her in public (unless she's drunk. Then she flirts right back) and they fight about stupid stuff but they really do care about each other and they have a lot of loud messy sex and just aaaaah I love them so much.

(Didn't bother to mark mature, even though there's more than one naked body in there. It's not explicit, but let me know if it bothers anybody.)

Title is this Cloud Cult song (www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlE3VE… which works really well for these two and their relationship. At least, the way my boyfriend and I have been writing them.

That Awkward Stage by CommanderKip
That Awkward Stage
Like really though, what did Jack do with her hair while she was growing out her ponytail? I think about this a lot.

(and yes Miranda's in there with her because in my headcanon they totally ran away together between ME2 and ME3 and had space adventures and angry makeouts)

"You only like her because she can't break you with one hand."

Enna shut down Leske's flirting so hard, it was hilarious.

a study of Rain Shepard by CommanderKip
a study of Rain Shepard
In which Kip draws her Shep a lot.

The big one in the middle is her former face from ME1. I like the idea of her looking back at the person she used to be and sort of wondering how things would have been different if her former self were the one facing down the Reapers. Whether her more patient, compassionate self might have been able to save the people she couldn't.

So it's literally been two years since I updated this journal. Whoops.

I leave for a semester in Italy on Friday, so I don't know how much I'll be around DeviantArt for the next few months. I'll try to pop my head in once in a while.

I'm a music and art major from Kansas, attending St. Olaf College, currently abroad in Italy for the semester. I love fiercely. I believe it is important to laugh every day - at yourself, at your mistakes, at the beauty of life. I get emotionally invested in people, both real life and fictional, and I don't think that's a bad thing.

Also, Mass Effect.

I didn't realize I favorited two of your pieces! Daughter of Smoke and Bone, because I just finished that and saw your drawings and loved them, and earlier I favourited your drawing of Pressia from Pure! You're a great artist. :D

Kip. Question.

what do you use to do your (Steampunk) nerf guns, if I may ask. Could I get maybe a quick step-by-step with products? Pweeeeese?

KoE. Answer.

I use metallic acrylic paints and matte sealant. I'm buried in school at present, but next time I paint a gun I'll try to remember to do a step-by-step.

Hi! No, I do not, sorry. I'm too busy with school and stuff. But feel free to suggest something for me to draw, and if I like the idea and I"m not too busy, I might take a whack at it!
