Mass Effect: Zero Hour - Part I Page 1 by andersoncathy Mass Effect: Zero Hour - Part I Page 1 by andersoncathy
Finally here! The first page (actually first few pages) to my comic series Mass Effect: Zero Hour. Based off of a dream of mine. Post-Mass Effect events from the "Best Possible Ending" for Mass Effect 3.

I'll make the first description brief: Please take into consideration that I did work a long time on each of these pages making sure that each character fit his/her personality perfectly. If there's anything that sounds odd or awkward, please leave a kind suggestion in the comments below. Each comic is saved as a PSD file so dialogue can easily be changed.

Credits Page will be provided soon.

I hope you enjoy!


First page: Now reading.

Wow!! Very well done.

You've done a very good job. The lighting, the poses, DOF, all of it, well done. I did want to ask, though. What programs did you use. Studio, Poser, Comic Life?

The only piece of constructive criticism is the phrase in the bottom panel. It's 'Well, I'll be damned.' And I'd suggest changing the next sentence from 'Look what we have here' to 'Look who we have here'. What would be used for an inanimate object, who is used for a person, regardless of if they're human or not.

You're hard work really paid off. This is beautiful.

Your friend

Thank you so much!
And thanks for the feedback! I will change that as soon as I can. :huggle:

As for the program I used, it's a program called XNA Lara where you can download various models and then pose them to your liking.
These images are raw images straight from the program then touched up with a few lighting effects and other little touchups in Photoshop. :meow:
My other works, however, I import the .obj files into Blender (Cycles) and then render from there and edit in Photoshop after rendering is done.

If you're interested, I could send you a few useful links to get you started. :D
Thanks again!

Yes, please.

I have Blender, but Photoshop is out of my price range.

I've heard of Mass Effect, of course, but I've never had the chance to play it. I didn't realize until after I had asked that they were screenshots from the game.

The background images are screenshots.
The models/characters are actually posed by me. :meow:

And you should, they're fantastic games. :D

Here's the main forum (download the program, models, poses, etc. here): [link]
o0Crofty0o has great models so here's his page: [link]
Rexil's models are good too so here's his: [link]

Also use Google & DeviantArt to search for any model you may want.
Let me know if you need anymore help! :aww:

Cool. Thanks. I'll check out the games, but it will have to wait until I get my new computer. The one I have now is several years old, and probably would not play those games. When I get my taxes, I'm going to get a new computer, so I'll be able to do that then.

I'll be sure to let you know.

:wow: impressive work so far, I didn't really read everything just lookedit over because I wait until it's finished. I prefer to read it in one swap then :)

I'm gonna fav the first page to get sure i will not forget to look for it when it'sfinished :)

Wow, thank you for the time you put into writing this nice comment about my comic.
I'm glad it interests you and you are excited to read it. :huggle:
Thank you so much for all the kind words.

I have ME2 for PC so I installed a mod enabling like free camera movement and I took my own screenshots directly from the game. :meow:
