Tali'Zorah Va Normandy by Taosenchi Tali'Zorah Va Normandy by Taosenchi
I've recently become addicted to the entire Mass Effect series. As it stands I did a four work piece of some of my favourite characters. With Tali it started out as her being the little sister of the crew and from there she became her own person, admiral to the Migrant fleet and even settled the dispute between her people and the Geth. She's the embodiment of perseverance when there is very little to work with. For that she's one of my favourite characters.

Original is 9 1/2" x12" Ink on bristol paper

Wow, these are really nice! Loving the ink technique, and the patterns on her hood are great!

Thanks! How are you doing anyway? I haven't heard from you or Kim in a while, but I think I've found at least one way I can work with ink and not make it look too terrible, haha!

I'm doing great! Got a job at a studio downtown, currently divvying my time between that and working on the webcomic. XD I actually got the Mass Effect trilogy over the holidays but haven't yet found time to play it.... (I think I need to get a mouse first, it's the PC version but it turns out PC camera-control-based games are unplayable with tablets and that is literally the only cursor input device I own :X )

Gonna see Kim tonight, actually! We're actually working like a block apart from each other, though she lives super far up in north toronto XD

The ink stuff is looking really good! You should keep working in it :D And posting more in general, I'd like to see what you've been working on!

That's awesome! I'll actually be up in Ontario next week for my birthday, ignoring the fact that I'm still in school, oh well. I'm glad that you two get to hang out! I haven't had any contact with her really and I'm glad to hear she has a job now.

I'd say for the videogame to get a decent mouse, like logitech or something with a good warranty on it. I use my wacom tablet mouse to play on my laptop though and it's a Sony Vaio, yours should let you do the same, that'd be a first if it doesn't.

I actually post more things to my tumblr now than I used to, use deviantart less and less. It's sad really, but I should get back into practice. Can't say I've done much art recently though since I worked over the holidays in retail, it sucked but it's money so I can't complain. Say Hi to Kim for me, and tell her to check her Facebook once in a blue moon.

Oh hey! Will you be coming near TO downtown by any chance?

I will look into that, I'm not sure where the mouse that came with my tablet has gotten to XD;;; I think I'd prefer just using a regular mouse though, or maybe getting a codec to let me use my PS3 controller with the PC....

Hey, you have a tumblr?? What's your name on there? Mine's the same as on here, I've been using it more and more lately XD (though not using DA any less.... hmm...)

I might be, not too sure. I'll be flying in Friday morning but I'll be cutting across Toronto from Mississauga, I think both of you will likely be working.

I've heard the codecs are nice, if it's not too expensive I'd suggest going that route, but I find a mouse gives you better control than the controllers. Although, that might just be me.

On tumblr I'm sketchsketches, I found you I'm pretty sure. Chirault usually gives it away XD. Katie told me you had one the other day when we were out for sushi. I find Tumblr is great for sketchdumps and weird doodles.

Hmm, well lemme know! I could always take a lunch break depending on the timing. C: (There's loads of restaurants and cafes near the studio, it's right by kensington and chinatown)

I might be able to find a codec for free XD I've heard mice give better control but I am attracted to the intuitiveness of the controllers (since I usually play games on the PS/PS2/whatnot). We'll see!

Added you back on tumblr! Yeah the chirault stuff is probably a giveaway. XD

Tali is adorable, although, I still ship her with Garrus. I don't know why but I always end up doing it (even though my first 3 play throughs I romanced Garrus, haha...) Still I can never seem to get away from romancing Tali if I'm playing sheploo.

My friend told me about if you don't romance Tali, Garrus does. My response was: "Not on my normandy!" xD
But if I wasn't as attached to Tali as I am, I would definitely put her with Garrus.
