Jena Shepard kicking James Vega's ass. He should have known better, really.

Yup...this is a new level of awesome, so congratulations on creating it!

Outstanding! Absolutly perfect work. I like the expression of her face.
Servala Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
oh wow. she looks really stunning. so real :heart: the tatoos :wow: and the shading
me :bow:

I love her - she reminds me of Jack :) 
halloweenjack64 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
And this is why there should have been a FemShep/Jack romance option.

Awesome! Yeah you don't mess with Shepard
lainiewench Featured By Owner May 10, 2013
The right hand is a little off, the thumb position sits a little more naturally between the first and second knuckle when forming a fist. Otherwise this is the most perfect rendition of Shepard I have seen in bloody ages. She LOOKS like she could kick your ass and still have time to go three rounds with Kalros. Renegade or Paragon, this is a fantastic Shepard.

She looks stunning, the amount of details is just insane!
MoRthreD-XX Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013
Much more interesting and realistic than the Female look of the ME3 posters...^^
sftf Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013
I'm sorry, but that's Jack. Not shaperd. Otherwise cool pic.
Jinxiedoodle Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow, how clever of you to know what I was painting even better than I did! IDK if you meant to be incredibly rude or not, but either way apology accepted.
minktee Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They have completely different faces but tats and similar hair- you're right sftf. How dare two females in the same videogame have anything similar to each other! Don't even get me started on the Asari.

I like that this Shepard actually looks like a real woman and isn't done up ready for a beauty pageant like about 90% of the other femsheps I see. I love your painting process and hope to get there someday soon.
sftf Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013
lol, I like the fact that she looks an actual warrior too.

And it's not just the hair and tats, it's other things in her face, her lips. maybe her ears? Can't put my finger on it.

Ow. Em. Gee.
No need to get all rabid fan on me.
minktee Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's not about being a rabid fan, it's about wording your comments better.
It could be anything, and if you think the piece is good artwork, regardless of who it may or may not look like, you don't need to be rude in your "liking" of it. There's something called tact, and constructive criticism.

Otherwise, you just offend the artist.

No need to be passive aggressive about it.
sftf Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013
Than let me rephrase:
The picture is very good, amazing even, but it looks so much like Jack,
that it's hard for me to make the connection with 'Jena Shepard.
WaitingForMyRainbow Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013
Because they have similar hair?

This looks nothing like Jack to me =/

(To the artist, beautiful work! I envy your painting talent)
sftf Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013
As I said above, It's her lips too. Maybe other things also.
Of course, that dosn't mean that you have to agree with me.

While I love the face and the expression, and definitely the tats, I would recommend taking another look at hands. Form a fist a few times and note where the thumb naturally goes when making a fist.

I feel sorry for James. He's about to get his ass kicked.
ArcHunt3r Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013
This is indeed, a great take on Shepard. It's not overly feminized which I REALLY like about this image. The tattoos were an awesome touch as well. Well done!
jessypet92 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Wow! This looks beautiful! The detailas on the tattoos and the skin. Amazing art! :D
jagespages Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I always wished Shep had a tat or tats. Seemed the type ya know especially this hot version. Look out Vega!
Caffeineghost Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013
Oh my *fans self* Now THIS kind of lady Shepard is my type! Glad to see I'm not the only one who likes their lady shep's with bit more brawn instead of the pumped up barbie doll type :P Really lovely work, she looks absolutely stunning!
Immortal-Krios Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Student General Artist
Now that's how Shepard should look! Awesome!

I just fall in love :la:

Fantastic art :la:
MadnessInMayhem Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
O_o No wonder death didn't slow her down. Am I the only one who took every opportunity to hit him? :P
Jinxiedoodle Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I enjoyed the whole sequence, but I also have a huge ladyboner of love for James Vega, so the only reason I don't mind hitting him is because he seems to enjoy it so much! Mmmm. Vega.
MadnessInMayhem Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
He did rather, didn't he :P
sasorizanoko Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think I have crush on your Sheprad, she's awesome! :D Your art is soo good! Details are amazing - her skin, her hair - everything.
If you are going to make a skin tutorial someday, I'd definitely love to see it! :)

Gorgeous. Love the sidelong glance, the tattoos, the bloody knuckles... all of it.
Dragonwyrd316 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
This Shepard, with the hairstyle of your Spectre picture together would seriously look like a sister to my Vali Shepard. Fantastic lighting and detail! Love it! Too bad you say you wouldn't do trades or requests, etc., because I'd love to see Vali in your style.
Jinxiedoodle Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! I do run occasional giveaways on my Tumblr (I'm doing one right now in fact...) and I may open up commissions on there afterwards, but I don't want to on DA as I don't really engage much with the community on here. If you want to have a look, I'm queendread and I mostly hang around in the Mass Effect/Bioware fandoms.
Dragonwyrd316 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Being a writer (and not really liking the way a lot of people act on tumblr anyway), while I have a tumblr I tend to stay away from it mainly because the community just doesn't seem to be for me and it's a bit more photo/picture centric than a medium for what I do. I did, however, find your giveaway post (followed you, liked, and reblogged just to be on the safe side) so at least I have an entry in (and hope your issues with that happen to get worked out). Just so you know who I am, shepardbecreepin is the name I use for tumblr.

But to give you an idea of what I meant by your Shepard looking like she could be related to one of mine, this is a pic a friend did of my Vali Shepard (one of my favorite Sheps who I need to get back to writing about): [link]

Again, though, I'm totally in love with your work. Looking forward to checking out your gallery and seeing more submissions!

Jinxiedoodle Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's a gorgeous pic! I see what you mean about them being similar. Great minds, right?
Dragonwyrd316 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Great minds indeed! Now you also see why I'd love to see her in your style as well. Fingers crossed that I maybe get lucky on your giveaway, but since I haven't had an email stating that I got a message on tumblr, I'm thinking my usual luck held and I lost :XD:

I have to admit, I also wouldn't mind writing something about yours. I think she'd be a fun one to get into the mindset of.
Jynxies Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
Before I read the title (or your notes) I thought this was a picture of a female version of James. You have to admit the similarities. Still. Awesome pic.

This is exactly how I wanted my latest Femshep to look! Very cool.
jancz89 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
must fave :meow:
HP01-CA9 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012   General Artist
This Femshep bears an uncanny resemblance to mine, hairstyle aside. Strong chin, severe nose, prominent arch (overall chiselled features) brown eyes, not to mention those sullen lips. Uncanny... and just as badass.

Great painting, powerful piece, love the shading and the depth you created.
AnnMarKo Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
Wow great artwork. LOL. I thought it was Jack, till I saw her scars. Jack would definitely love to meet her. :D
