Mass Effect 3: "Cover Art"
Posted: Monday February 27th, 2012 by

So I saw a news article this morning dedicated to the cover art for Mass Effect 3. Now, I realize I've never played any games in the series. And, I know that I'm horribly jaded. There are very few reasons I can think of to make a news article about a game's cover art.

I'll be honest with you here. I was almost done with the artwork before I even considered the idea that Commander Shepard is such a bad ass that he might not actually need to breathe. Again, I've not played the games; so I have no idea. All I can tell you is that when I saw the box art a puzzled look nestled itself firmly into my face and I wondered quietly, "why is he walking in space?

The artist in me realizes that the image is just a collage of fantastic artwork that has been done for the game, and the intent isn't that he's actually walking in space. But, hey, it's how I responded so I ran with it.

Hopefully you guys forgive the lateness of the comic. I spent all day recreating the box art as close as I could, well... except for the asphyxiated Shepard. But I'm guessing you guys understand that part.
