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.

The Evil Inside Of Me by CommanderKip
The Evil Inside Of Me
I made this in high school Advanced Drawing and I'm still reasonably proud of it. The assignment was to draw a portrait of a character that highlighted two different parts of their personality. Done from photo reference.

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

Aw, thanks! (For the compliment and the faves.) It's always nice to find someone with a similar taste in books. XD

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?
CommanderKip Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
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 :(

Do you take free requests? :(
CommanderKip Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
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!
