Mass Effect 2 - Subject Zero by axl99 Mass Effect 2 - Subject Zero by axl99
Had some fun with a different painting style inspired from Left 4 Dead's concept art and messed around with a different colour pallete.

Excited for Mass Effect 2, such a pretty looking game.

Rewatched one of the CGI character trailers that Blur Studios worked on and fell head over heels with what they did with Subject Zero.

It was so well made it outclasses the other Mass Effect 2 character trailers in terms of raw visual quality.

dammmn! Jack is so hard to draw with all her tattoos. How long did it take?
Also, great color choice!!

Beautiful. The colors work so well in the piece. You just capture Jack's character completely. C:

No. Not at all. :)

The colors, textures, and art style are really beautiful which kind of contradicts to Jack's nature, but that makes this artwork even better. Good Job.
BethBAMF Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
Lovely coloring. My Shep would've hit that if not for Bioware's incredible knack for making certain characters forbidden.

I remember the first time I saw Jack a.k.a. subject zero i was totally speechless. I mean she is just so bad ass and broken, has such a grim past and a shocking design, so far she's my favorite character.
This drawing is just as amazing as Jack is, The painting technique is so colorful, she even looks charming, dammit i love this! definitively goes to my faves
axl99 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you very much! Yeah, I pretty much was head over heels for her design since her first reveal trailer too. I mean there's a bunch of things we get about her at a glance in the first 10 seconds of it.
ESV Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010
I know, those seconds are VERY impressive, and you're welcome

Aaah, Jack. A broken girl, who managed to keep on going by becoming one of the Galaxy's biggest badasses. The artwork is, just like the character herself, wild and ferocious.

I'm in love with her. So beautiful OwO

Hey there! Although it'd have been preferable if I was asked before the content had been posted, sure I don't mind you guys linking back here. Thanks for the heads up.
Giggilymoricon Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The thumbnail made it look blocky and ugly.

But looking at it in high res changed my mind immediately. Love the style. I would have put a bit more detail into the scalp and smoothed out the shading on her face just a little bit more - I think it was over the top there - but great job.
ForumAura Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010
Wow, I LOVE your choice of colors! It contrasts so sharply with Jack's personality that it just seems... right!

I also love the way you've clothed her - it fits very well!
Epantiras Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well drawn and colored! I remember seeing this pic on the Bioware forums too.
Bakageta-Koto Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
The emotion in this piece is simply lovely! ^^ I adore the color palette, and kudos to you on the work with her tattoos. I can see the work you've put into getting them right.
PirateRose Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Not too often that you get someone who actually puts effort into Jack's ink. Usually people are putting in a bunch of random scribbles and swirls.

good job.
axl99 Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Would've been nice if there were better references at the time I was painting this, but the tats were fun.

Beautiful! And yes! Jack is such an awesome character. Was amusing character to have in your squad. You've done a wonderful job. Love her pose and expression.

I see you are first, to put a picture from the second part of this great game .........emprecionante trabajo me encanta ^^
Script-Z Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010  Student Artist
Love the way you did this! It almost seems to capture the character in a new way, yet is still 100% JACK!
Personally I loved her, and would have made love to her but no FemShep action, and my other ManShep (or is it just Shep if its a guy??) went after Tali cause, well, ca'mon, you have to ask?
Also, her loyalty mission was one of the best, and VERY well written, won't ruin it for anyone but man, it blew me away, as did all the loyalty missions. Lots of familly issues though...
AGirlNam3dGoo Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010
cool piece. I like the colors you did, although they are different from the personality of the character, it adds an interesting spin
ThiaminaTenn Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2010   Digital Artist
