Nice picture! Alive-looking...)

GAH! This is just amazing!! :heart: I love Nyreen to bits, definitely one of my favourite characters and you've drawn her so brilliantly here. She's so badass but, in a way, graceful at the same time. The sketchy but defined shading and the colour scheme make it seem like she's made of burning embers, quietly threatening. LOVE! :aww:

I would'a traded Aria for Nyreen in a heartbeat if given the chance.
Vaahlkult Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Then why are you telling this to someone who loves both the characters to a great degree

Shits and giggles friend. Shits and giggles.

This will pretty much always and forever be one of my favorite pieces of fanart for Nyreen. Knocked it out of the fuckin' park with it, and the coloring style/filters/whatever the hell you used for it just make it ten times better.

Never played ME, but she looks like a badass, nicely drawn!
Eurephys Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2013
Am I the only one who thinks she looks a lot like a Force user here? Like a Jedi or something?
Mooncrafter Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
I angry cried when she died. I knew I could use bullets.

I chose to be malicious by spamming cryo and warp and just super punching everything until they were dead while I saved Aria.

thanks for the spoiler bitch
Mooncrafter Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2013
You're quite welcome. I acknowledge that I should have put up a spoiler warning, but I greatly appreciate your need to cuss at me because I revealed the death of a side-character that has no real impact on the entire franchise other than that she has a connection to Aria.

I also assumed that the DLC had been out for ages because I had just recently started playing the Mass Effect series, so the need for spoiler warnings did not occur to me.

This is really really good! :)
I love Nyreen even though I haven't played the dlc yet! That is how awesome I think she is :D
Vaahlkult, you did an amazing job here! :fav:

the first female turian i see and all i can think about is garrus's reach and flexibility
13THPanther Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
when i see the female turian in that coat i see a bunch of places to hide weapons and things .

If I was a turian, I'd want that getup. SO BADASS.

The dlc is only two days old (In Europ it is two days old) =O how fast are you? And it looks epic, omg it looks soo cool!
Vaahlkult Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I actually did this weeks ago, I think Nov. 8th, around when Nyreen's appearence/name was unoffically released by BioWare!

Dahgnear Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Seems like a very interesting character, but I don't like that bald head of hers.

And of course you did a good job!=)
Denof Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012
Awesome clothes. Can't wait to see her in action :)
starwolf94 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Student
this drawing is sick! now I really can't wait to see Nyreen in action in the omega dlc
LilyheartsLightning Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
A magnificent piece of art! Great job!

(And now I'm even more eager for Omega. :S)
Cyanak Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
I really like this drawing! It makes me think of an old drawing in a book! ^^ Also she's very mysterious, I hope the DLC will be good and full of action!
Onyrica Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Professional General Artist
I really like this artwork... I like the blend of what I think is a pencil drawing with digital colouring. Also, I'm so intrigued by her character... can't wait to play Omega!

If you don't mind me asking, is that background a texture layer or did you actually paint that? I'm working on my concept art backgrounds and such, as I've always been a lazy cow and now I struggle to get to grips with it. I'd love to hear any ideas on how you did this one or where you found the texture if it is one.

Thanks and great job again! ^^
Vaahlkult Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Thank you!
The background consists of a texture overlay, and my own bit of painting with different SAI brushes. I used texture 01 from ~NinStock's gallery.
the texture was overlayed over everything, and any graininess was attributed from the sketch, because it was just an iphone picture of the drawing in the first place haha.
all of the dark contrasted space at her feet was where I painted though, using textured brushes in SAI, and were made on either shade or luminosity layers. Sometimes I make textures for full pictures the same way, usually using textured brushes that come with SAI or PS. I make the brush size nice and big and just start dabbing around the area i want textured on a separate layer. most of the time i have in between 3 and 8 layers dedicated to texturing, all of which are in non-normal layer modes, with differing opacities. it's all just messing around until it looks good, really.

hope that's what you're looking for c:
Onyrica Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thanks! That's very helpful! Also, I'll keep that gallery boomarked, in case I ever use it.

But yes, again, thank you for taking the time to explain. Very kind of you! :hug:

She's beautiful!
Good job, awesome draw! :3

Good stuff :)
calicoJill Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
You're really good at creating depth, specially in the material. I'm envious of your skills. Also loving the predator pistol and the vibrant textured background! Very cool. I'm excited to see what her character is like. I have a feeling she's going to be pretty badass. I think the team of Shepard, Aria and Nyreen might almost have TOO much badassness in it.
MisterChivalrous Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
Nyreen's sort of rocking the Kasumi Goto look...I wonder what her skills are (Combat, Tech, or Biotics).

I don't recognize her voice actress, but whoever it is sounds really good.
PrototypeB Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
She's basically a sentinel. :D
Vaahlkult Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I'd say she's tech and biotics; I don't speak french but that's what I'm gathering from this screencap

I haven't had a chance to hear her voice yet, few of my friends also said they really liked it though. c:
