All jokes aside, this is bloody amazing. Nothing else needed to be said.
And that sentence, 'This creature.. this monster.. she is my daughter.." Just made me sob.
YOu ahve to know I am a giant Samara and Morinth fan... wrote their whole backgound story... and seeing this makes me so happy... and sad the same moment
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.
Rip my heart out, yeah?
Dang this is amazing
