"Minä annoin sinulle kaikkeni,
viimeisin voimin taistelin.
Tuuli hajottaa.
Kaikki katkeaa."

~Jippu, Väärinpäin lentävät linnut

"I gave you my everything,
fought with the last remaining strength.
Wind blows from afar.
Everything falls apart.

~Jippu, Birds flying upside down.

So, finally! I finished this after letting it dangle for a couple of weeks because of my chronic busyness. :,D It's my first Mass Effect 3 fan art o my favorite pairing, FemShep x Thane. I have yet to play through the game so please, no spoilers! I'm 23 hours into the game at the moment and have played through the parts with these two and frankly, I would have wanted to see a little bit more ... emotion. So, I figured I'd draw it myself.

The picture was inspired by the beautiful lyrics of Jippu's new single "Väärinpäin lentävät linnut"! Hopefully you like what I came up with and I'm hoping to complete more stuff soon!

And the rest of my Mass Effect fan arts can be found here!

This pairing, I always thought, was the most emotional out of any of the romantic interests in any of the Mass Effects. The night they share in the Normandy in ME2, their reunion in the Citadel, his death protecting the Salarian councilor, and the Citadel DLC content [a must-see for any fan of this pairing] will cause an emotional overload that can bring anyone to tears.

Thane was such a bad-ass in ME2 and ME3 that it shocked me when I saw Kai Leng kill him in my very first playthrough. This hit me so hard that I couldn't play the game for a week! I still believe that there was no way Kai Leng could've killed Thane if Thane was in the same condition he was in during ME2, but that's another story.

Your pic brought back all the emotion I felt when I played through ME3 and watched the Citadel DLC content with Thane as the LI. Pure awesomeness!

Awwwww . . . I hate Thanes death. He's so amazing and totally awesome. Plus he and Shepard are perfect for one another. Thumbs up for Thane X Shepard

You've done the pain on her face so unbelievably well! This is very good work, thank you! LOL not sure the shadows make sense but only someone as finicky as me would notice that! It's still remarkably gorgeous and even with the lighting versus shadows it adds to the whole feel of the picture. Very nice.

Random question: if you'd be willing to give permission I'd love to add this to the albums of a Facebook page I admin called Mass Effect Female Shepard. I'd include reference to you as artist and a link to your original here in the photo caption?
