Mass Effect and all characters belong to Bioware (and I guess EA?) This is just a fan-comic that I make absolutely no money from in any way. I really just enjoy Mass Effect and I'm not done hanging out with the characters I've become so attached to.

Is kinda harder make critique for the comics, because comics is not just one page, its complex and very different from one picture - Its details are lowered for need to make lot of pictures in short time etc etc...I try to be fair and don't judge just one page but all 6 and I also try explain how i see each stat and why i rated so:)

Vision-For me, this stat should show, how good the comics represents the Mass Effect universe, if it's something what should never been created, going agaist all canons, or its some decent addon to universe or something supreme deep which makes universe way better?...honestly, it's just few pages without much story exposed, so is very hard to decide if it's deep or if it tell something new and special...so 3 of 5...its good, its not shame for universe but it got not enought pages to be able make a epic story...it's good start

Originality-I guess this stat is pretty clear..so as i can say from my experience, there is not much mass effect good free comicses, it's whole handy draw and not just copy of main plot story...it got new ideas, interesting dialoges and promising story, so Hell yea...originality is your strong point...Maybe I bit overating originality, but for now only few good mass effect comicses keep go...less rivals -better rate:)

Technique-Simply the draw/linking coloring technique. Its decent, for one person its great, but compared to work of more people it's not the best thing possible-It is somewhere betwen average. You really putting a lot effort in textures, especialy on wrex armor and as good may result looks, I'm bit confused, because skin is totaly simple, without offence skin is for me the most weak point of this comics..oversimpled...it should be good if clothes and armors was simply too, but seriously good textured armor and supersimply skin is cocktail hard to swallow.At least 2colors of skin could gently help bypass the grand canyon betwen great made armor and poor made skin. Also colors are bit confusing. Wrex armor is so clear RED but all other colors are so shadowy...i understand its your style you like it, you do it nice, its decent and without doubt enought for comics, but its shadowy average technique.

Impact-For me impact says, how much art blows your minds, how much it hit your emotions. Especialy in comics, how much you lust for next episode. As I sayd in vision rate...Its too few pages to decide such thing. And honestly again, its decent story, no big action or hangover yet...so not much emotions in my head yet...i definetly looking for next page and wanna see it, but i still dont feel completly hooked by story or amaized by dialogues, characters etc...well lets see after more pages:)

I know the rating may look bit underated, but as i sayd on begining...lets judge it as complex work with story and progress...and there is simply not enought pages with such slow story tell to be amaizing enought ...It got potential, its interesting, BUT it definetly dont have technique which take breath and amaize ppl enought itself so it NEED great story or great character or great dialogues...you know comics dont need exelent draw style to be good, BUT without great draw style comics NEED something other to be interesting because the draw style is thing which kick in eyes most...you know, to be interested by story you need to read few pages...to be interested by characters you need to read more pages...to be interested by draw style you need ONE look on any page...which makes thing easier...so when your style is not perfect its not loose, but you need to catch people up on other things and work more harder...i hope this can by any constructive for you and i wish your comics lot more pages and succes:)

Good old Wrex, messing with crew. Looking at them menacingly, sitting next to Williams and calling humans space midgets. :lol:

Nice comic, even though it started rather dark ^^;

Finally remember to come around and leave comment~!!^^
Gosh, I remember you showing me the amazing line art last time, it's amazingly well drawn~!
(As I said before I am totally gonna ask for your permission to use your drawings as a reference, since I still haven't challenge myself to draw any Krogan yet.)
Wrex's comment reminds me of someone's word from another movie, but I can't remember where~
I can't help myself stop smiling like an idiot in the Terminal while waiting for my flight(Yup, I am in the air-port now).
Thank you for your beautiful artwork and comics again~~ Can't wait to see the coming pages~~~~!!!!!!

I already told you that you could use what I've drawn as a reference. Just don't trace, and don't copy+paste. Understand?

Shepard may not be big but i bet they can knock a Krogan out with their bare hands. Not Wrex though, it'd be a tie. They're both too bad-ass to be knocked out

I must start by saying that your previous work on Wrex armour is as good as the one in the previous page! All those details, and the colour and texture only adds realism to it! Not to mention that you're mastering something we commented in Art Class: being able to depict the characters with simple lines (which for me is more difficult than using a lot of details!): you recognize Ash and Kaidan here with just a few lines. I think that now it's you who should give me a piece of advice in this one! 
I also want to say that I like a lot what your uses of backgrounds: just by detailing it in the central panel, you let the reader know where thet are and you can leave the rest of the panels more "clean" and focus of the characters.
... Wrex eats fast!! :wow: And his dialogue fits his character perfectly.
Amazing job!

Depicting characters well with only simple line is proving somewhat difficult. I like the look of Wrex here, but I just can't seem to be able to get Kaidan to look like Kaidan. I don't want to overwork his face otherwise it will clash with the more simplified style I'm trying with everyone else. 

I like to think that I'll get it with some practice. I think I'm already starting to see general improvement from my first page to here. It's like we talked about before, comics are good way to force us to keep drawing regularly, so we can't help but improve along the way. So I'm not really sweating it too much if a given page isn't exactly perfect, I just do the best job that I can at the time and enjoy the journey. The important thing is that we are improving as we go. 

Truthfully, I'm a tad lazy when it comes to backgrounds. I just don't feel like working out how the background would look from every angle. It's a lot of work to get it all looking sane, and my release schedule is slow enough as it is. And when it comes to close-up shots of characters with little space left, I feel like drawing in the backgrounds would just make the panel look too busy and it would distract from the character in the foreground. So, for now I'm just sticking with the strategy of only adding backgrounds when there is so much space in the panel that it would look weird if I didn't, and to give the audience a sense of space so we all know where the scenes take place. 

Indeed! Wrex eats fast. (Honestly, I just didn't feel like drawing his food again, so I imagined that maybe a few minutes had passed between pages.)

Dialogue is tough. I want to fill the audience in on who the characters are and a little bit about the world there in without anyone delivering exposition dumps or uttering the phrase "as you know..." Anyway, I like to imagine that the crew of the Normandy occasionally speak to each other, and not just to Shepard. Mass Effect 3 did this very well, and Mass Effect 2 did this only in special scenes, but ME 1 didn't really do it hardly at all. I really can't imagine all of these people being on this tiny ship for however long the game is and never once being in the mess hall at the same time, having some small talk.

As for the mess, I changed it a bit. In the game, the table has weird pointed ends, which is a waste of space. Also, instead of bench seats, it has several sofas spaced a couple feet apart from each other. This, for it's only table. The Normandy may have a small crew, but I would think that the Alliance would be a bit more practical than that. So the table here is a standard rectangular cafeteria table with bench seating (just like the ones I used when I was actually in the Army.) Also, although it isn't really obvious from this shot, I added food boxes in the background. When I was in the Army, where we ate wasn't always where the food was made (I figure that, on the Normandy, the cafeteria is elsewhere on the ship since there's no room for it where we are told is the mess,) and that's when our food was brought to us in insulated boxes that we would scoop food from. So I added a counter on the back wall (behind Kaidan) and put boxes on it. I'll be having Shepard rummaging through those later. This has absolutely no impact whatsoever on the story, it's just that as I was writing this I got to thinking about how the Normandy is for the purposes of a game, and how it ought to be if it were real. So comics are a fun exercise for that too. 

Thanks for your support. I'm hoping to make the next page soon. :)
