Tali 'Zorah Vas Normandy by polarityplus Tali 'Zorah Vas Normandy by polarityplus
More Mass Effect lol. Thought I'd stick with the stock face:)
Done mostly over a couple of live streams
Probably took 5 to 6 hours on this one. I'm liking the results.

Trying out textures and some stuff I learned doing backgrounds.

Prints
enjoy

Just started playing the Mass Effect saga. I'm about to finish the first one, and Tali is by far my favorite character. Cant wait to take the Tali+Shepard path.

Yeah, I refuse to accept a badly photoshopped picture as canon. I'd rather stick to using my imagination when it comes to deciding what the quarians look like, and this one matches it near perfectly.

I probably have a level of love for tali that crosses over into stuff I should get therapy for so.... Thanks for correctly and beautifully depicting Shepard's wife!

About time someone drew Tali the way she was supposed to be drawn, rather than purple or some other coloured skin :D. Good work dude best unmasked pic yet.

They decided to go for the middle ground between showing and not-showing her: show her but make it extremely disappointing.

beautiful, i wish Bioware had made a full 3D model that looked just like this for Mass Effect 3, i'm a huge Tali Fan & this just feels like the perfect face for a character that remained faceless for 5 years

I just can't imagine a human head when I look a quarian body.

Anyway, this face is just adorable, really looks Tali, indeed !

I've seen this everywhere... Why do people draw the mouth light on "Tali Unmasked" pictures That's part of her visor that gets removed.

It'd be pretty damn hard for her to attack Shepard's face in the ME2 romance consummation scene if it were still there.

Really gorgeous work on this one and her little smile is perfect. Also, I always thought is was silly how people got upset over the stock image thing. the stock image girl looks just like the voice actress, but I figure the actress didn't wanna pose for the shot.

WannabeSpiderMan, the Quarians are supposed to look human, it's been in the lore since the first game.

Also their skin was never purple, it was unknown until it was released. The tint of the visors made the skin look that colour, especially noticeable if you put her in the Phoenix Armour in ME1, her skin looks red.

ANYWAY, amazing piece, love it.

This is a beautiful take on the stock photo Tali. :+fav:

I feel though that at least a light purple skin would make her appear more alien, and less human. White skin makes her TOO close to human. The purposefully vague Bioware stock photo makes it so you can't really tell what skin tone she had though.
