Tali Zorah by oomnine Tali Zorah by oomnine
Six years after the defeat of the reapers, the Quarians are fully adapted to their homeworld Rannoch. Tali finally managed to have her beachfront home.

As I promised, I would do a Tali portrait from scratch.

I always wonder what happens after Mass Effect 3 ending on the world of Rannoch. This picture will work for all ending. I want the scene to be vague. You can assume Tali is mourning over Shepard's death or teasing Shepard in front of her porch. You decide. Rannoch is fully rebuilt with or without the help of Geths.

Feb 1/13 Updated: more details and added ground to represent the porch of the home. Please give me feed backs!

Thanks to these great people who inspired me to do this work.

Awesome work!! Where's the face from? An actress perhaps?

I just saw this portrait on a facebook page called The Shadow Broker. I love it, this is really lovely work of Tali. My compliments to you.

Well, this is some stellar work here, oomnine...but I've always pictured Quarians being humanoid but not near-mirror. But BioWare did it that way. So, unless we're near-related species based on genetic material from a huge diaspora (a la the ST TNG episode "The Chase"), I'll just pretend that any endings where the majority of the galaxy's residents survive means some blending of genetics along with the tech-biology merger :)

This is amazing.

Amazing, just amazing!! you do her justice!
BombTheDodongo Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014
I really like the concept of how you used part of her suit as her clothing. It's kinda like, maybe they wear their clothes over the suits, but most people wouldn't know. It's really pretty <3

Just finished a playthrough of the ME Trilogy with a Male Shepard romancing Tali, did the Destroy ending, and I needed some image in my head to show a "happily ever-after" moment.  You provided, and Tali looks GREAT!  Thank you for your work!
VoltaireDeNassa Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014
This is probably my favorite image of Tali I've ever found. Amazing.
rogen80 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014
Beautifully done! This is a great piece of art! 
I definitely interpret it the latter: "teasing Shepard in front of her porch." One of the many reasons I chose destroy; Shepard and Tali live to build a life of peace and happiness on Rannoch! :D

Not a fan of what Bioware did for Tali, But You made it look Great on her here. :)
Alpha1ance Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014
Synthesis ending was great with the exception that Tali and Shepard won't get to be together :(

You've done an amazing job, love it.

Geth and EDI forgive me, no synthesis!  Destroy! Must live to see this!

Hi! I wanted to let you know that I made a Mass Effect perfume ad artwork using your model as a base. I gave you credit and linked your page, of course. You can see it here: [link]

Thanks so much for your great work - it is truly beautiful and an inspiration!
oomnine Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I really like it! Good job!
pokeyfish Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So, Bioware actually posted my perfume ads to their official FB/twitter and I've been getting a ton of requests to make them available in poster/print form. I uploaded HD versions of the images for free download but if people do buy prints of the art, I can paypal you half the earnings, as it is your original artwork I used in my ad. Please let me know if this is ok! ~Amy

This actually looks pretty close to the picture of Tali Shepard received after romancing her in ME3! Good job!
Panthraka Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2013
well...i will have you know that this picture is amazing and spectacular
GisRFTG Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013
The only thing wrong I can see is her nose isnt quite consistent with what a quarian nose is shown to look like.

I love this! She's too human but that's the source material's fault not yours :P Loving that outfit and I like the city in the backdrop. No bugs on rannoch either :P

This is a great imagining of Tali under the mask. Good job setting the emotion and feeling in the picture too. :+fav:
RunaKage Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
As much as I absolutely love this, the date is incorrect. Mass Effect 3 actually takes place in 2186....yeah, I know, I'm a nerd.
bRaiNdeeP Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think he took this into account. At the beginning of his description is says "Six years after the defeat of the reapers, ..." And 2192 is 6 years after 2186. ;)

Wow this is gorgeous
bibakilla Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2012
Thats just beautiful!

But there's no sign of mourning, just pleasure ;)
Super-Rico Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Mourning? I really can't see it, more teasing and enjoying than anything.
RoluevasVasReisa Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Writer
Beautiful job on this and amazing work =)
I also think leaving it up to players choices helps. Rather than say this is her for such and such regardless if u like it or not. Many artists do that and it just pisses everyone off
i think u make a smart choice here =)
PrincessFelia Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Soooo beautiful..:wow:

Great Work ! :) It's really nice
Mordin--Solus Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Quarian's physiology fragile, open air exposure not recommended, could cause failure of immune system and fatal infections. Oh, awesome picture too!. Busy now, have to run tests, will be here if you need me.
Deemonef Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The first Time. That I fall in Love with her.
You did a awesome Art. Thanx for this:)
