Cool picture concept. Samara and her backstory stuff = fascinating to me. I loved her conversations in ME2.

Right in motherf**cking feels! This is literally the first time ANYTHING has made me cry on first glance. Such a powerful image that it is.  Samara holding Morinth and looking so happy and proud and in the background.... My eye's just filled up with tears. 
And that sentence, 'This creature.. this monster.. she is my daughter.." Just made me sob.

This picture makes me so sad.  Actually, I'm crying while I write this.  Samara looks so happy and proud.  Morinth looks so comfortable in her mother's arms.  Those things make this picture so difficult to look at when one knows what becomes of their relationship.

The background being in purple is an inspired choice.  It's the color of asari blood.  It bleeds into the foreground.  It perfectly compliments the background and connects it with the foreground.  I get the feeling that the blood-like dripping effect refers to more than just any blood Samara and Morinth may have shed when feuding with each other.  It also symbolizes the heartbreak the two of them have felt in having to feud in the first place.

I love the color of Samara's dress.  Red and gold, just like her Justicar outfit.  She wears her etched gold neckband, too.  It says so much about how her past and present are connected.  It also says so much about how personal her decision to become a Justicar must have been.  I also like that her forehead ornaments are something you show her wearing in the past.  A lot of people think they're some kind of badge of a Justicar, but Liara wears them too.

Thank you for paying attention to the details of Samara's features.  I could see this picture losing its effect if you weren't so fastidious.  You show the darker color of her head-crests, you show her strong cheekbones, you even show the moles on one of her breasts.

This is such a heart-wrenching picture.  Thank you for making it.  Thank you for making me cry.  :cry:
